Sharks in no mood to be friendly


Written by Rob Otto (robdylan)

Sharks coach John Plumtree has named the first team of his tenure, to compete in a compulsory friendly against the Griffons on Friday night. Bradley Barritt captains the side from flyhalf.

Craig Burden starts at hooker with Bok props Deon Carstens and Jannie du Plessis on either side. Alistair Hargreaves and Albert van den Berg will be the starting lock pairing as Steven Sykes is named on the flank, in a somewhat surprising move. Jean Deysel will get a chance to make the number 8 jersey his own, while Jacques Botes continues on the open side.

The bench is an expanded one and will give the coach an opportunity to asses some of the fringe players available to him in the second half. Skipper Badenhorst is a familiar name, but there are new men aplenty elsewhere amongst the forward reserves. Prop Melusi Mtetwa and lock Pampoen van Jaarsveld will get their first opportunities at this level, while Skollie Ndlovu and Jacques “Chabal” Potgieter will cover loose forward.

In the backs, forgotten man Scott Mathie will be Barritt’s halfback partner. Andries Strauss and Waylon Murray complete a formidable midfield, while young Danie Dames will start at right wing, with stalwart Henno Mentz on the other side. Former Paarl Gimnasium man Chris Jordaan will make his debut in the number 15 shirt.

Expect the entire backline to be replaced at half time, though, as Charl McLeod and Andrew Borgen take over at halfback, Riaan Swanepoel and “Zuks” Vulindlu come in at centre and Lwazi Mvovo and Dumi Matyeshana come on at wing. Borgen himself attended Kearnsey College, the same school as Barritt, but is a year younger.

Here is the full team:

15. Chris Jordaan
14. Danie Dames
13. Waylon Murray
12. Andries Strauss
11. Henno Mentz
10. Bradley Barritt ( Capt )
9. Scott Mathie
8. Jean Deysel
7. Steven Sykes
6. Jacques Botes
5. Albert van den Berg
4. Alistair Hargreaves
3. Jannie du Plessis
2. Craig Burden
1. Deon Carstens

Replacements

16. Skipper Badenhorst
17. Melusi ‘Burra’ Mtetwa
18. Schalk van Jaarsveld
19. Skholiwe Ndlovu
20. Jacques Potgieter
21. Charl McLeod
22. Andrew Borgen
23. Rian Swanepoel
24. Luzuko Vulindlu
25. Lwazi Mvovo
26. Dumisani Matyeshana

  • I think that some guys are being rested or not playing for various reasons.

    Muller, Pat Cilliers, Big Nik Justin Downey, Mike Rhodes…

  • Is Terblanche available for the CC? hehehehe like the look of the starting props, both internationals and deservedly so, now Burden must learn to scrum as a short Hooker, I wonder if they can get John Allen to help with that. I am guessing that Terblanche, Kockett, Keegan and Muller are all being rested, they all played a lot of rugby in the Super 14. I like seeing Brad as captain, he did an excellent job of running the defensive lines in the Super 14, I just hope that playing 10 and captain is not too much of an ask, but it is just a friendly, and he does seem the natural choice for captain for the CC if Muller is called up for the tri-nations. I really like the lineout options with this team, with Sykes at 7, I think that Sykes is a better 3rd choice jumper than first or 2nd, just hope he has the pace to keep up at 7. Good stuff should be interesting to see this team in action.

  • Just to get you lot in the right mood. Griffins team and report from suparugby
    Qoute
    forgotten Springbok flyer and two Springbok Sevens stars. That’s the surprise package the Griffons have up their sleeve when they host the Sharks in a compulsory friendly in Welkom on Friday night.

    The former Springbok winger Friedrich Lombard will get a run for the Griffons, who have been strengthened by no fewer than nine Cheetah players for the Currie Cup competition.

    Lombard represented South Afrika and the SA A team in 2002 and played Super 12 rugby for both the Cats and the Bulls.

    Also in the Griffons squad are number eight Jonathan Mokuena and fullback Fabien Juries, two of the Springbok stars in the Sevens series.

    The acquisition of these players will make the Griffons a force to be reckoned with in the Currie Cup B-section and they could well give the Sharks a run for the money on a cold Friday evening in Welkom.

    The Cheetahs Vodacom centres Philip Snyman and Bernd Theissinger, scrumhalf Danny Theron, flanker Albert Parson, lock Isak van der Westhuizen and hooker Hercu Liebenberg complete the Bloemfontein invaders in the Starting XV.

    Former Welkom boy Niekie Steyn, who wore the Cheetahs jersey with pride in the Vodacom competition, was named amongst the reserves.

    Local stars such as Ockie van Zyl, Windpomp van Rooyen and the Louw brothers could thrive amongst the quality players that have joined them for the Currie Cup.

    The midfield combination of Snyman and Theissinger might only play until the start of the national Under 21 competition.

    Griffons vs. Sharks: Fabien Juries; Shane Hancke, Philip Snyman, Berndt Theissinger, Friedrich Lombard; Johann van Niekerk, Danny Theron; Jonathan Mokuena, Ockie van Zyl, Albert Parsons, Isak van der Westhuizen, Windpomp van Rooyen, Jaco Louw, Hercu Liebenberg, Sarel Louw ©. Reserves: Romano Sibiya, Gert Greyling, Tros Botha, Sandile India, Niekie Steyn, Shaun Botha, Bolla Abrahams, Werner Griesel, Juan de Witt

    So a battle between pampoen & windpomp!

  • I would not want to be a prop in the CC and have to play against the prop options at the Sharks. This may be as good a scrumming combination the Sharks can put out there, we all know how strong Carstens is, and he attacks the opposing tighthead when he scrums, and JdP is as good a scrumming tighthead prop as there is. Burden must be relishing the opportunity to scrum alongside these two in the CC.

  • @robdylan (Comment 33) : I also have the feeling that size is important to Plumtree, like it was to Jake White. Keegan is not a lineout option, and is not really strong enough in the upper body yet to be a good fetcher/opensider. Not sure where he might fit in.

  • @robdylan (Comment 33) : Keegan has improved his attitude a lot this season. He seems more interested in getting the work done and less in wild-eyed antics. Speaking of improved attitudes, one thing we can always thank AJ for is knocking some of the kocky out of Kockett since he got to Durban.

  • @CapeShark (Comment 39) : I believe it was early in the CC last year, Kockett was mouthing off to the referee, and just generally acting like a kocky arse. AJ nearly klapped him on the field, got in his face and shut him down and quickly. There were other incidents between them, but since then Kockett has been a model citizen.

  • @robdylan (Comment 42) : That was exactly the kind of thing the Sharks needed AJ for the past few seasons. He was the seasoned veteran that could still cut it with the very best, and just commanded respect from the youngsters. I am positive that Kockett will be a great scrumhalf for SA Rugby, and he can thank AJ for helping him along early, he helped him mature very quickly.

  • @robdylan (Comment 49) : Botes will hopefully step up as a team leader. He has captained before, but seems to be more the quiet type, just get the job done and don’t say anything. Great to have okes like that in a team, but just isn’t the leader type. I don’t know how he acts in training. I hope that Deon steps up but he too seems like the quiet type similar to Botes. So you’re right I’m afraid, I think that Albert will do fine calling the lineouts and leading in that area but not an AJ. So yes, really lacking in this area, all the more reason to have John Smit come home, and I hope….please…Butch as well (why isn’t anyone talking about bringing Butch home???).

  • @robdylan (Comment 65) : Why isn’t anyone trying to get him out of his contract like they did for John, Victor, etc..? We don’t hear any talk about Butch, and I think he is as important right now to the Boks and the Sharks as any player could be. Butch has become the all-around, balanced and polished flyhalf. Oh and don’t forget I said he was a fine goal kicker when everyone was worried before the last test. We should start a campaign to bring Butch back, with him and John back next season we must win the Super 14!

    Does that include the game against the World XV when he got murdered by Cobus Visagie?

  • @wpw (Comment 67) : I practically wrote an article about that game, the only time he was destroyed in the scrum was when Visagie was scrumming in illegally, and was often called by the referee. Every time that Visagie scrummed square in that game, he got his arse handed to him by Deon. I played a long time in the front row, I understand front row play, and I can assure you that when the illegal techniques were taken from Visagie, he was handled by Carstens in that game.

  • Carstens is an attacking loosehead, unlike Gurthro who just relies on his strength to hold up the tighthead. Carstens scrums aggressively and from his attacking position, will simply go to ground if the tighthead scrums in. It looks bad to someone that doesn’t understand front row play, but if the ref handles that part of the game and keeps the props square, there are very few tightheads that can hold their own against Deon.

    He didn’t have a good game and if he did as you say ‘handle ‘ Visagie, why did Jake not select him again after that?

  • @Salmonoid (Comment 69) : Mujati got murdered by doing the same thing Visagie did in the World XV game, he scrummed illegally because whenever he scrummed straight he was shoved backwards very quickly. The difference is this referee penalized Mujati and then the poor prop had no idea what to do in the scrum.

  • @wpw (Comment 71) : First game against England in 2007 front row….Carstens, Smit and BJ. So he was selected again, in fact also played off the bench in that second game against England last year as well. Was going to go to the Tri-Nations but was injured, was also on Jake White’s list of 6 players as first alternates for his RWC squad until he got injured. If he was not injured he may well have been called up before Jannie.

    Sykes plays like a flanker. He is quick, with good hands and is a HUGE tackler. Maybe the reason he’s not turning into a meneer of a lock is because he just isn’t a lock at all?

  • @robdylan (Comment 80) : I don’t think he is a lock when it comes to lineout options, but he is a strong oke so may scrum well at lock. It is nice to have him as a lineout option as a flank though. Albert is so solid in lineouts, he seemed to be the only one capable of settling the Sharks lineout in the past Super 14.

  • I heard in an interview with Beast that he has learned a lot about playing prop from Balie Swart. I think that influence has become clear since the Beast has become a formidable scrummager, and he scrums aggressively. Any team will find it difficult to get a right shoulder against him now, and he still has much to learn. That combined with his ever presence around the pitch, and storming runs just has to be the prop of the future for the Boks though.

  • @Salmonoid (Comment 95) : I think this is why most referees have such a hard time policing the scrums. I know he is not the most liked referee in SA, but Dickinson (I have heard played in the front row) seems to take care of this area better than most referees. He has pinged BJ a lot for scrumming in (which he does quite often, but only on opposition ball) whereas most referees let him get away with it. I can tell you that as a hooker, I hated when the opposing tighthead scrummed in on my put in and didn’t get called.

  • @Dancing Bear (Comment 97) :
    Thanks for that, so you were a hooker, did you play in the days when the scrummie still had to put the ball in in the middle of the scrum and the hooker had to strike to secure the ball. If yes, how different is the skill level (of hooking)as opposed to nowdays when skew put ins are the order of the day.
    I remember well how a heel against the head was written in all the match reports, a thing of pride and a great crowd pleaser.

  • @Salmonoid (Comment 99) : Sorry for the delay, got locked out for a while. Yes, definitely played in those days, and ended my career playing with more leeway on the put ins. It has taken away a need for quick feet and those skills in the scrum, by the hooker, and has turned the focus into being a very strong scrummager, sort of a third prop. Short hookers have to scrum differently than tall hookers, that is why Burden can not really learn to scrum from John Smit or Bissie, they are both tall, and have developed techniques suitable to their form. I am short so developed different techniques, I have mentioned to RobD before that I liked scrumming against tall hookers, I felt they were easy to pop and generally take out of play in the scrums. But yes, the focus is more on strength in scrumming and driving, and less on winning a ball thrown down the middle which required quick feet.

  • The gospel according to Greenaway

    “Bradely Barritt will captain the Sharks from the flyhalf position in Friday night’s compulsory friendly against the Griffons in Welkom.

    Coach John Plumtree has picked a team that is partly experimental in that he is giving some club rugby stars opportunities while resting some of the Super 14 players.

    Rovers fullback Chris Jordaan has been given his chance in the place of Stefan Terblanche, and on the right wing Empangeni fullback Danie Dames has been picked.

    On the bench, some of the most exciting black talent in the province has been picked, and it is going to be a big challenge for the Sharks in the Currie Cup this year to develop and bring through black players as Dick Muir and John Plumtree did over the past two years – five black Sharks are with the Boks, and four more are with the SA Under-21 team.

    Click here!

    Interestingly, Plumtree is giving Steven Sykes a go at blind-side flank, and he could well end up permanently filling the role that was vacated by A J Venter.

    Johann Muller and Rory Kockott are others that have been given a break from the unenviable trip to Welkom, and Keegan Daniel and Nikolai Blignaut have not been considered because of injury.

    Sharks: 15 Chris Jordaan 14 Danie Dames 13 Waylon Murray 12 Andries Strauss 11 Henno Mentz 10 Bradley Barritt (capt ) 9 Scott Mathie 8 Jean Deysel 7 Steven Sykes 6 Jacques Botes 5 Albert van den Berg 4 Alistair Hargreaves 3 Jannie du Plessis 2 Craig Burden 1 Deon Carstens

    Substitutes: Skipper Badenhorst, Melusi ‘Burra’ Mtetwa, Schalk van Jaarsveld, Skholiwe Ndlovu, Jacques Potgieter, Charl McLeod, Andrew Borgen, Rian Swanepoel, Luzuko Vulindlu, Lwazi Mvovo, Dumisani Matyeshana.”

  • Plumtree said he was keen to see what Sykes could bring to the party when playing at No 7.

    “He has all the attributes to be a great flank and the role is not too different from the locking role he has played in the past,” he said.”

  • Your lock pairring is very thin….

    And thyey have that very very short lock on the bench…

    Good move to play Strauss….he did very well for the Sharks a few season ago…until he got injured…

  • @Hmmm (Comment 146) : agree that Hargreaves and Big Al is not a great combo. Al and Muller will probably be the starting locks in the CC.

    Pampoen’s not that short… 1.99m. He’s only short if you compare him to Andries Bekker ;)

  • I meant the Goddess of victory – we should build a temple to you here in the ether – call it “Die Paleis van Eis”.

    Why aren’t you on in the evenings anymore? We are having some great winding-down chats late into the evening.

    I am shocked and amazed!

    Hmmm, I will have a word with Rob – what shall we put in die Paleis? I would suggest the treasures and heads of non-believers, but Rob might get sticky about stuff like that…

    We can make wpw High Priest – he looks like an old-school clergyman.
