Hang in there, Sharks

It won’t be long before the horrific injury toll in Sharks land starts to ease up. Perhaps then, we’ll start to see some of the rugby that we love.

The match against the Bulls surely has to be an all-time low-point in terms of the team’s performances this season. Given that we had around 15 first choice players unavailable (with a few pulling out on the eve of the match) , it’s probably understandable that the team lacked rhythm and cohesion. I’ve had my rant about that, so perhaps now it’s time to apply the benefit of the doubt and start looking to the future.

We have the best props (and the best scrum) in the tournament this year. Pat Cilliers will be back in another few weeks to further bolster a front-row division that already contains Boks BJ Botha, Deon Carstens and Jannie du Plessis. With Robbie Harris a useful stand-in when required, along with a few youngsters around, the Sharks have no issues whatsoever in that area. Craig Burden’s value was emphasised in his absence against the Bulls. Lineout woes seem to be affecting everyone this season, with the new laws, so Burden just needs to keep on doing what he’s been doing.

Steven Sykes should be back this week (and back at lock) and can renew his partnership with Johann Muller. The two Als are around to share the impact lock role, bit we need Steven and Johann to get back to the high-paced-grunt type of game that they played so well in the Super 14. Joe Snyman is another who will hopefully make his presence felt once he returns from a stint with Hawke’s Bay in New Zealand.

Nik Strauss looks like a reasonable stopgap until Jean Deysel returns; hopefully the latter will be ready to play in another 2-3 weeks. Loose forward is an area where we are crucially short, but we’re just going to have to hang in there until Deysel gets back. Hopefully a youngster like Justin Downey can still make his mark this year and Nik Blignaut surely must still ahve a role to play.

Rory Kockott and Brad Barritt are back in training and should resume their halfback combination for the next two weeks, after which Fred Michalak should be ready to take over at flyhalf. Barritt can then move back to centre and hopefully be just the tonic that Waylon Murray needs to find his old fizz. If not, Riaan Swanepoel is looking exciting and we still have the young Luzuko Vulindlu (and the not so young Dumi Matyeshana) keen to make their mark. Henno Mentz looks like he needs to be put out to pasture (if not taken out and shot) but in Chris Jordaan and Lwazi Mvovo we have a pair of young wingers who are full of pace and hungry for work. Stef Terblanche is a tyro on defence and will look to improve the attacking aspects of his game as he becomes more familiar with te wings playing with him.

Surely we can expect to get at least a few of our backline stars back when the Boks arrive back in 3 weeks as well? It’s hard to imagine that all of Jacobs, Pienaar, Steyn, Ndungane and Pietersen will be included in the Bok squad for the home leg of the Tri-Nations.

For the Sharks, the next few weeks will be about doing as good a holding job as we can while we wait for our stars to come back into contention.

* With Deon Carstens and Nic Strauss nursing slight injuries, it’s possible that neither will be available for selection against the Valke this weekend. We’ll keep you posted.

  • I donno Robd…

    15 players?

    Who would have started ahead of:
    Terblanch?
    Muller?
    Botes?
    BJ?
    Plus Muray has been first choice 13 most season…yes we all know Adi should start ahead fo him…but merely stating facts…

    Plus the likes of Jordaan and Swanepoel played better than what we have seen from your regular wings of late…
    And the way Carstens played…Beast could easily pllay from the bench a game or two…

  • @Hmmm (Comment 3) : I wouldn’t take Heinke over either Beast or Carstens.

    @Hmmm (Comment 2) : I count as follows:

    1 Beast
    2 Smit
    3 Bismarck
    4 Sykes
    5 Kanko
    6 Deysel
    7 Pienaar
    8 Kockott
    9 Michalak
    10 Steyn
    11 Barritt
    12 Pietersen
    13 Jacobs
    14 Ndungane

    Ok, so we had 14 guys out. Make me a liar for the sake of 1 player.

    Yes but Pienaar and Kockett would not have played at the same time…

    Michelack/Barit/Steyn/Jacobs….2 of them would have lost out…

    Either Smit or Bismark

    At most 10 changes to your side…

  • The Sharks training will take on a positive vibe today as the team welcome back a number of players from injury. It is not certain who will be ready to play this weekend, but certainly the inclusion of Brad Barritt, Rory Kockott, Steven Sykes and Frederic Michalak (pictured) at training, albeit in a limited manner, will bolster the team’s morale and possibly their firepower ahead of their clash against the Valke this Friday night in week four of The Absa Currie Cup.

    Coach John Plumtree confirmed that all four are all expected at training later today “and we’ll assess them after that.” Michalak is still a few weeks off a start and flank Jean Deysel will be back in a matter of weeks as well, having fractured bones in his hand in the preseason compulsory friendly against the Griffons.

    Plumtree also gave an injury update following the Blue Bulls match, explaining that, “Deon Carstens took a little bit of a calf muscle injury and Nic Strauss is OK but has a little bit of a knee injury which will be assessed and he’ll undergo rehab today.”

    Looking back to the Blue Bulls match, the coach admitted that, “I think we got a couple of things wrong in our preparation and that cost us. We missed some important one-on-one tackles which let us down and that was disappointing because we knew that if they gained momentum through their big runners, they would stress us out wide. We have a little bit of inexperience in the backs, and as they play, they will improve, but yes, it was a bit disappointing.”

    On the flip-side he pointed out that, “A positive sign is that we played some of our best rugby of the year, I thought some of the rugby we put together was better than some of the stuff we did in the Super 14, so that was encouraging for us.

    “There is a lot of stuff we are working on that’s actually coming through. The scoreboard doesn’t reflect this, but we saw some really positive rugby. There is a lot of stuff in terms of strategy that we are trying to put in place to get better.”

    Losing Bradley Barritt late in the week was a real blow and Plumtree admitted that Monty Dumond deserves praise for his effort. “It was hard for Monty, he had no preparation time whatsoever.”

    He also attributed the mistakes made by the Sharks to good pressure applied by the Bulls.

    “If the side is good enough to put you under pressure you’re going to make errors. The game of rugby at this level is about pressure – how much good pressure you put on them to force them to err, how much they do to us. We’re dealing with a Bulls side that is bloody experienced, there wasn’t a single guy there that isn’t a household name in Pretoria, and probably South Africa. We knew what we were up against, it was really tough.”

    In mitigation, he admitted that injuries and pressure are excuses, “but they’re valid ones, so I think everyone needs to show a little bit of patience with this team. We’ve had three games and two wins, we’re looking forward to another Friday night game [at The Absa Stadium Durban] and we’re all positive here.”

  • Rob, the Sharks are playing the Lions when you are in town here at 5 p.m. SA time which is 11 a.m. US East Coast time. So will be fun to watch the game with you. I will work on getting some expats to perhaps join us, the Rockfish Bar is open at 10 a.m. and with Justin now being the bar manager (favourite South African local bartender), we may be able to take over the bar for a few hours. I will keep you informed. Only problem is most of my SA friends locally are WP and Cheetahs supporters. :lol: There are some other Durban boys in Annapolis, and I will have to try to rope them in as well.

  • Rob is an international man of mystery. He hides his real persona behind being a Sharks supporter.

  • @Hmmm (Comment 55) :

    i guess they’ll play him off the bench, just getting him ready to join the Bokke in a few weeks time…everyone seems worried they’re bringing him back too soon but you have to hope they know what they’re doing…next question is whether PdV will use him or not
