    And if you have a Sky credit card and use it loads, you earn points and can use your points to knock off your Sky bill!

  • Such a pleasure watching Sharks wings who can step, swerve and think on their feet. Would love to know if they have pace too.

    Brad wasn’t good – obviously not better yet. Murray is looking very good so far – great defence and hands so far.

    Monty and especially Mathie are selfish, distribute badly and indecisive – you cant have halfbacks like that!

    Please bring on Mcleod already!

    Oh, and Strauss looked pretty good until his subbing.

  • I have not read the comments but have this to say after the game.

    Get the Valke backline coach to Durban ASAP!!!!!!!!!!! Thier backline is WAY better than it should be. We have our great defence to thank for not getting a hiding tonight.

    Their backline looked so much more like a Premier div backline than ours did.

    Oh and if Dewald pretorius wants to come with the coach please let him :wink:

  • If my cable company didn’t suck I could order Setanta sports and get all the CC, S14 & Tri Nations games but noooo Comcast is evil and won’t pick the channel up no matter how many letters or calls I put in to them.

    Verizon too now b/c Setanta is available on their Fios service which of course isn’t in my area.

    My only option is Dish which is something I’ll look at once my mediazone subscription runs out in January.

  • @robdylan (Comment 32) :

    Law says if the scrum half moves away from the scrum he must move away the whole five meters to the offside line for the rest of the backline.

    it was miscommunication between him and Daniel. He tapped daniel on the back as he went but I think Daniel didn’t feel it and Mathee was stranded in no-man’s land.

  • my only complaint about kaplan is he wasn’t blowing the new laws correctly. at ruck time he stopped the opposition touching the ball, yet the new rules state (i may have misinterpreted them)as long as you are on your feet and arrive at the ruck legally you have rights to the ball. he also allowed far too many rucks to be sealed off and players on the ground the chance to maneuver the ball when the new rules state that if you are on the groundf you are not allowed to touch the ball.

  • as for the sharks, their defence was a tad better. the thing that will be their downfall though if they don’t fix it quickly is their poor communication and lack of support play. far to often the sharks players were caught in the tackle with none of their players around them. the only player that seems interested supporting the ball carrier is jb and he is the leading try scorer due to it. stefan (again) showed how poor his communication and decision making was. regularly he carried the ball up, but then tried his best to get as far away from his team as possible. he was unwilling to maneuver towards some of his players so he could offload. keegan is also to blame a little here. he reminds me of the old luke watson, that thought he didn’t need the team, he could do everything himself. same as keegan, he has talent, but no team spirit. he constantly is out of position and runs away from his supporters. the positives i have about the sharks is the new wings. they are showing some true pedigree and with a little more work could be vital to the sharks.brad and fred settled things nicely in the backline and i am looking forward to next week when their form starts coming back.
