Bulls stuff Sharks in display of pedantic non-reffing

The Blue Bulls kept abreast with their adversaries in the Absa Currie Cup with a perfectly implemented game-plan as they laboured to a 35-14 victory over the Sharks at Loftus Versfeld in Pretoria on Saturday.

SAPA/News24

The match had been poised for an epic battle with a stern rivalry developing between the two sides in the past few seasons but all the pre-match hype evaporated with the referee’s consistent blowing of the whistle and unnecessary referrals to the TMO Michael Cupido.

For the better part of the game, referee JC Fortuin failed to commit himself to any decision and opted to refer matters to Cupido who wasted precious time by taking longer than two minutes to come to a decision leaving the Loftus faithful agitated and feeling like they were at an American Football match instead of a rugby union game.

Regardless, the Bulls kept their heads throughout the match and through sheer determination to turn the course of history with the Sharks having enjoyed some memorable victories at Loftus Versfeld in recent times.

It was the Bulls who were first off the mark when Tiger Mangweni scored the first of his two tries as early as the seventh minute before Wynand Olivier emphasised the Bulls dominance with a try in the 21st minute.

Mangweni crashed over again in the 29th minute but it took another handful of minutes to finally award the try by Cupido.

The Sharks had been kept in the loop by flyhalf Monty Dumond who slotted over three penalties in the first half.

In the second half, it was the Blue Bulls who ran with intent thrusting bodies forward in an attempt to get an early breakthrough so as to set up the opportunity and enough time to go for that all important bonus point.

As much as the Bulls gained momentum on the front foot, they could hardly get within striking distance for the Sharks’ tryline as the visitors defended with all their lives.

Steyn missed an early penalty which would have stretched the Bulls’ lead even further but stood up to the task in the 63rd minute when he slotted over a penalty to give the Bulls a 19 point lead and one the Sharks struggled to nullify.

Five minutes before Steyn’s successful penalty, Springbok forward Danie Rossouw had scored what looked like a legitimate try but Cupido disallowed it rightfully awarding a penalty to the Sharks for Rossouw committing a double movement.

For all their efforts and under a relentless attack from the Bulls team, the Sharks were able to string together a few encouraging movements and their efforts were duly rewarded when Albert van den Berg scored among a pile of bodies to add some respectability to the scoreboard with the Sharks still trailing 28-14 in the 71st minute.

The final blow in the Sharks’ last ditch attempt was from replacement scrumhalf Francois Hougaard who picked up the ball from the base of the ruck and dived over to ensure victory for the Bulls and depose the Sharks at the top of the Currie Cup log.

  • It looks like the score in the Griquas vs Valke game was reported incorrectly. Sarugby.net now shows it as 36-28 and not 36-30 like we had it (Not sure where we all got it from). Anyway, it means one less log point for Griquas and 2 points less in points for and for the Valke 2 points less in points against.

  • rob a big article for a game that should be erased from the annuls of time. everything about it was wrong. the bulls were the better team, but when a referee gives two tries that were created illegaly, then even the best team would battle to come back from that. wynands forward pass and the line out ball that never went five both created tries. you could see after the latter try the sharks had given up. yes granted later in the game the bulls got some odd decisions against them, but they were never going to lose after the refs had broken the sharks spirit. i would say yesterday was a day of some dismal refereeing (i include the boks game)and it is a prime example of what is hampering rugby from becoming the great sport it should be.

  • remember how the boks collapsed against the irish that game where honiss gave a try after telling john smit to talk to his team. a bad referee can kill a teams spirit, and that is why they need to be policed better than they are.

  • I don’t actually know how JC fortuin is still working as a professional referee.

    The last two games I watched where he was refereeing were both characterised with poor decisions – with even the commentators in both games questioning his competency.

    He’s a shocking referee. I don’t know how he passes the peer evaluations.

    I can’t believe they used the double-movement terminology – there is nho such terminology in rugby union!

  • @robdylan (Comment 13) : yes but the sharks were penalised for holding onto the ball when they were tackled, yet they held onto the ball for a shorter time than roussouw held on. but i agree that was a try. but as i said above that game should be erased and written off as where rugby is wrong.

  • Morning…I thought the guys were pretty k*k….and all I have left from my trip to Loftus is Pneumonia! :cry:

    BUT…and there is a BUT (which a lot might not agree with)…

    I watched the Highlights (or lowlights) of the game last night…and I think a few things…

    As a team – it was a shocking performance, but I actually saw some new individuals who actually showed great promise..maybe if this team practised together a bit it would have been somewhat different?

    Some of these youngster got the “vuurdoop” of their lives..I mean – The Blue Bulls at Loftus!?

    Chris Jordaan reminds a lot about Brent – but he will not feature in a game where we only defend. He needs a solid forwards pack who can secure good ball for attack – that’s where I will see him shine..
    I also liked the playing looks of Riaan Swanepoel, Scott did not impress me and neither did Monty…

    What worried me is the lack of support…if someone got a good break and got tackled – there was no-one to clean out and get the ball distributed again?? And what the hell are the looshead and tighhead standing in the fricken backline for?? :???:

    Jannie (again) can be given back to FS…seems he cannot perform if he’s younger bro is not there to hold his hand. I am sure he makes enough money and dont have to stay in Durbs and wear Bissies clothes.. :wink: – so really…he can go!! :mad:

    Ok – just a note to Ness…I reckon Riaan Swanepoel is worth stalking…get his number!! :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

  • Yeh…never thought I’d say this…

    The Bulls won this match in the backline….

    Structured backline moves…Wynand superior to both Sharks centre’s (regardless of which was in front of him or whether it was attack or defense)…

    Must say the Sharks winds did well….especially Riaan Swanepoel…and Terblanch showed great pace for a 33 year old keeping Mametsa at bay twice…

    But 9-10-12-13…the Bulls were way ahead…

    And Murray….he ran 150 meters and gain only 2…yes work it out…but it is not really a riddle…

  • The Sharks had a more superior tight 5 (with exception of Danie Rossouw who was stand out tight 5 player of the day)…

    But where they lost it was in loose trio…Nick showed some resilience that the Sharks could not in previous games but he was only one man…he also got around the park more than both Botes and Daniels who have more pace…looked like he was everywhere…but that could be his hair that makes him stand out a bit more…

    And Ndlovo coming on did not help matters…he was hardly at the rucks….when he was it was on attack and he merely protected the ball with his body (staying on his feet well on all occasions baring once when he was penalised)…but was nowhere on defence at the rucks…he bothered no one every minutre he was on the field….
    Even with ball in hand…once when he picked the ball from behind a ruck in the Sharks 22 after a kick-off…he stepped passed a Bulls loosie (think it was Wannenberg)…who merely stuck his hand out behind him to a Ndlovo who had already passed him and stopped Ndlovo in his tracks with one hand on the shoulder….I am sorry…that is physically inept…the Sharks need to muscle and they are not finding it in Daniels/Botes/Ndlovo…think Nick is a right step in that direction and when Deysel comes back he can play no 8 and bump Daniels to the bench….

  • On Danie…

    He seemed he did as he pleased when he wanted…and the Sharks had no say in it…
    He ran strong…showed great pace….even from stand still…and great handling….

    Very Very bad call from the TMO on not awarding him that try…

  • On the TMO…

    He got a few wrong…

    Danie’s try was def a try…Tiger’s 2nd was def NOT…clearly 3 steps forward…unless the grass lines (cut lines) on loftus are very skewed….but a few meters…

    The foul play where Jannie backhand punched Pedri on the back of the head…they should have played the lineout or scrum 5 meters from the Sharks tryline…JC got that wrong too he should have overridden Cupido’s decision…instead he took them back to the halfway line for a penalty…

    Was some of the worst if not THE worst refereeing and combined with TMO “play” (not sure what it is you call what a TMO does)…I have ever seen…even the touch judges (Michael) got that forward pass wrong…then the TMO got it wrong with 17 takes when everyone saw it after the first take…

    I been getting less and less points a round (ave about 7)…but have moved up the ranking to 11th already…

    And we are only in round 3 of the comp…Robd…you really going to have to think of some kind of a trade rule for the second half of the comp to make it a bit more competitive…else it is going to be like the S12 was for a few years where the SA fans stop watching after the first half cozz non of our teams can make it to the semi anymore…

    Seriously need to think of that…

    And who is auditing the weekly scores? I mean any one person can make mistakes…

    Hougaard just came back and managed to get himself buggered again…
    Kockott, Brad, etc. But the biggest reason for my low scoring this weekend was the fact that the Sharks lost. Hopefully we’ll do better against the Valke.

    I wish I had Tiger in my team. And what happened with that ball he knocked on?

  • @I’ce (Rebel With a Cause) (Comment 54) : Ice, I use the stats I use so that I can score each game the same way. Let’s say that the captaincy in a Griquas-Boland game was handed over to another guy. I would never know about it because the game isn’t televised and that sort of thing isn’t included in the official match stats. I’m scoring this thing using as much information as is readily available, given that I cannot actually watch every game, particularly not the ones that aren’t even on TV.

    @Hmmm (Comment 55) : Dude, you are the only person who has criticised this thing since day one. Nothing is good enough for you. Why don’t you rather get over yourself? You think I’m doing this for my health?

  • @Hmmm (Comment 55) : Suggestions are cool…and they will be considered for the next edition.

    The original rules of the competition are very simple…and I believe they work. Not to say there’s no room for improvement but I don’t see why anyone should lose interest. A lot of exciting games are coming up and some players will get injured while others recover. Some players will lose form and others will start scoring. How exciting is that? :razz:

    And then the BOKS will return…

  • @robdylan (Comment 59) :

    Well if you’re working towards ill-health then that could be a yes…
    And please name once where I have criticized…please….

    I bring up facts…and if they are harsh then I cannot be blamed for it…merely telling you what my opinion is of what the trend might be…
    Others won’t say anything…they will just pay less and less attention to the FL…then you did it for your health and sexkitten….

    But it is kool…clearly you are overly sensitive about this…I will not comment or make suggestions…even though I thought it was to the greater good as you have applied and used my suggestions (even in the fantasy league)…
    But I guess stagnate is your thing…

    And I am not complaining about it for myself….I mean I have moved up to 11th stop already….

    You sound like a politician….

    We will sort this out in the next presidential term…but for now we are super great…

    My suggestion favored the leaders in the FL…I said to keep the trades to a bare min and say for every XXX odd FL points you per a trade where the max should be 5…and the min 1…just to keep the competition strong…and a chance for others slightly off the pace (in the 20’s) a chance to still win…
    The other suggestions I made was merely on stats reported…and awareness of players/etc…

  • @Hmmm (Comment 66) : yeah right…like politicians possess my kinda logic :roll:

    Will the “minimum trades” necessarily make the “weaker teams stronger”?

  • @blackshark (Comment 70) :

    Will make them stronger…but still depends on who you trade for who…but could just give them the edge they lacked after the first half of the comp…and that might just be enough to catapult them into the top ten or give someone the edge over sexkitten and kick her out of first stop…

    At current rate I don’t see her losing her lead very soon…

  • @Hmmm (Comment 72) : Why should she lose her lead soon…she picked a good team.

    We’ve only had 3 rounds dude and just in the last round I dropped from 9 to 16. What does that tell you? Well apart from the fact that I had a [email protected] round it also proves that there are a lot of movements happening.

    So with 2 or 3 bad rounds kitten can drop a few places too. If
    she doesn’t…then well I guess she deserves the prize.

  • @blackshark (Comment 73) : The round MVP bonus ensures that it’s actually quite easy to catch the leader. Walter got it this round and moved up 6 places or so.
