  • Cheetahs turn over Sharks ball in Cheetahs half and Fortuin BOOOOTS it up field to bounce 1CM short of the deab ball line.

    mentz gathers with the Cheetahs chasing and then passes to Michalak in goal :shock:

    Michalak knocks it.

  • Waylon at least ran straight today, but still looking a shadow of himself.

    If there is anybody else here, tell me this – did JP have a poor game today? I know I am biased, but SA Rugby gave Jantjies a 5,5 and him a 4,5 – I think thats ridiculous.

    the team has no structure

    the backline is so porr its scary , the lineouts??
    hell we got murdered , the only place we did well was in scrums

    gees all one has to do is look at how the falcons play with lesser names then the sharks and see what good coaching does

    the thing is the bad coaching has been all year not just now

  • @sharks_lover (Comment 66) :
    There is no doubt that the Sharks have coaching problems.

    Thing is, history shows that the Sharks Administrators tend to err on the side of caution is appointing new staff and letting failures go.

    Bashford has been shocking since he started, and Plumtree hasn’t looked all that much better.

    @Oranje Orakel (Comment 69) :
    Sorry old chap, you are in the wrong place if you are looking for excuses and spiteful snipes. Bit different to what you are used to I am sure. :mrgreen:

    As far as the Sharks go, I agree with Sharks Lover- the Coach needs to start taking responsibility for these poor performaces. Back line is pathetic, no punch at all, and with all that experience???

    read your own posts for a change….

    Not just those when you want to sound serene and “in charge of your own emotions”

    But then bullshiTTing have a way of finding its way back home!

    Eish – about not finding “excuses”

    Mind you “Cheetahsworld” might just be a gOOde idea- in the meantime I will be a cybersquatter. I sommer chat the whole time with me pals- right here in the coMMunity I live.

    So where do you think the $hark$ Coaching will play Ruan and Steyn when they become available?

    Ruan at 10 and Frans at 15 would be my call… “Next Generation” Sharks backline (with a new coach, God willing)

    9 Rory, 10 Ruan, 11 JPP, 12 Brad, 13 Adi, 14 Odders, 14 Frans

    20 Macleod, 21 Murray, 22 Bodmer.

  • I read my own posts OO, and there is no dissonance between what I say and what I espouse- would that you could claim the same. But then you seem to have made a career of claiming a moral higher ground that only you can see. But that is your right- just as it is mine not to entertain your rather obvious inferiority complex. Scroll button it is then.

    I’ll be in the Stats (no OO – not the FREE State!) in about 10 hours. Will catch up again then.

  • Sorry…but this result was expected…
    Said it last week…

    With ELV’s looseforwards have a greater effect on the game…and with Blighnaut there who is less physical than any of the Cheetahs 3 loose forwards and slower with an even less physical player in Ndlovu to replace him the Sharks were always going to be out of it….

    YOu guys are going to lose some great up and coming back 3 of the likes of Jordaan and Swanepoel for the S14 due to JPP, Odwa, Terblanch…

  • @Hmmm (Comment 93) :

    I don’t think so, we have (in the past) a pretty good rotation policy that has kept the “non-players” happy. I just hope things stay the same now that we have a new coach.

  • And sorry to the Daniels fans…but he is more trouble than he is worth…

    He gives away dumb penalties…and his attitude that he needs to make up for his total lack of physicality is not helping him…
    Like the once when he tackled Stoltz (even though Stoltz still moved forward about ¾ meters in the tackle he pushes Stoltz’s head into the ground as if to say “so you are not so tough”…I mean don’t you usually have to smash a guy to have an attitude about it? Stoltz was like “what the heck”…so surprised that he did not even retaliate….just like lying there shaking his head…

    And he has no impact on the game…only time you notice him is when he does something wrong….

  • Must say Botes does stretch the defence…even the backline players…but he does not have the usual impact he had when it was him AJ and Kanko…
    I think he is required to do too much of the grinding…which is not his strong point as he is not very physical…but not only that it almost nullifies the impact he could have in general play and slowing down oppo ball at the breakdown by getting to the tackle ball situation quickly….

  • @KSA Shark © (Comment 94) :

    I hope so for your sake KSA….
    It would be a tragedy to lose players like Swanepoel and Jordaan due to former stalwarts (and I mean former as in the sense that you cannot reply on them anymore)…
    Likes of Murray/Mentz/etc playing off the bench or making the S14 squad in stead of them….

  • Sharks have a No 7 problem…
    Kanko’s return will sort out 8 (although he is not a physical presence at the breakdown or in the tight facets)…so they have no one enforcing at the breakdowns…and they need to find a tougher 4!??!

  • @Hmmm (Comment 97) :

    We could never rely on Mentz. he had MAYBE one good season and that was it, he never got back to his top form after breaking his leg. The wings that were used in his absence in the previous two rounds of the CC are much better than him

    I agree….but he is still higher in the pecking order and therefor viewed to be a former stalwart…

  • How slow is Murray…
    I mean Kabamba is not slow….but the way (in spite being the ball carrier) pull away from him like a backline player is expected to from a forward….
    At that rate if they ran over 100 meters my guess is Kabamba would beat him by about 15 meters…and that is a massive difference….

    Murray should maybe look at moving to loose forward!??! He is far too slow for a backline players!??!
