Sharks send strong team to Kempton

John Plumtree has rested some of his battle-weary stalwarts, yet still named a formidable line-up to face the Valke in Kempton Park on Saturday.

Starting up-front, Bok discard Deon Carstens will move over to the tighthead side to allow young Pat Cilliers a start at loosehead. Skipper Badenhorst is back in the number 2 jersey, with Jannie du Plessis and Craig Burden providing front-row cover off the bench. Bismarck du Plessis is being rested, while Beast Mtawarira is nursing a groin niggle. Johann Muller and Steven Sykes are the locks, just as they were last week, with big Albert van den Berg on the bench providing second-row cover.

The irrepressible Jacques Botes will be on the bench this week, after starting in virtually every competitive game for the Sharks so far this year. Keegan Daniel moves to the side of the scrum, vacating the number 8 position for the returning Ryan Kankowski, who starts his first Currie Cup game since the home win over the Lions two months ago. There are only four forwards on the bench this week, a sure indication that the Sharks aren’t really anticipating much resistance up-front from the ragtag Valke.

Fred Michalak is another player who will be limited to an impact role this week, with Bok Ruan Pienaar given a run at flyhalf. Rory Kockott comes into the team at number 9 and with two such good scrumhalves in the run-on side, the coaching team has opted to make do without a third scrummie in the squad.

Adrian Jacobs is fit to start at outside centre, with Frans Steyn continuing at number 12. Waylon Murray moves over to the right wing in place of the injured Odwa Ndungane, while JP Pietersen continues on the left. Monty Dumond comes in at fullback for the rested Stefan Terblanche.

Bradley Barritt and Chris Jordaan make a welcome return to the 22 this week and both will provide cover off the bench.

Sharks to face Valke:

15. Monty Dumond
14. Waylon Murray
13. Adrian Jacobs
12. Francois Steyn
11. JP Pietersen
10. Ruan Pienaar
9. Rory Kockott
9. Ryan Kankowski
7. Jean Deysel
6. Keegan Daniel
5. Johann Muller (Capt)
4. Steven Sykes
3. Deon Carstens

17. Jannie du Plessis

  • I really hope the Sharks can take this type of depth into the Super 14 next year. Reading comments on Keo and the likes…the other unions are so jealous of the Sharks depth. It’s really nice that the Sharks can Lose all the Boks and still have a quality side…unlike the WEEPEE

  • sure is although i must say i am surprised at the full back
    i would have gone for jordaan who is a natural full back
    although in saying that i watched the club champs and he was not good

    his desicion making was poor and so to his kicking

Fundamentally our(SA) Shares are reasonably valued I think , but all the bad news from America is causing bad sentiment and causing panic all over the world. I read this aricle this morning which really scared me. http://www.moneyweb.co.za/mw/view/mw/en/page94?oid=225773&sn=Detail
    If I knew the exact time I would have a big box at Kingspark and would never work again. Only time will tell :roll:

    Then, after that, they need to win their next two games by at least 1 point ;)

    Lol… it would be tempting to hoard physical gold/silver under the shed…

    I’ve been predominantly trading futures (SPI, FSTE, DAX) since November last year with the few equities left protected with ‘put options’ and the rest @ 8.5% cash…

    Anyone expecting a few red cards in this game… are the Valke as roff as some of the clubs around the area (some classic youtube footage)?

  • @bryce_in_oz (Comment 46) : no – never seen him play. Was very keen to and if you check out the article I did on loose forwards before the Currie Cup started, I mentioned him as one to look out for.

    I’ve heard that he lacks bulk in the lower body…

  • @bryce_in_oz (Comment 44) : I switched his portfolio completely out of resource stocks just before resources started to fall and into some financials and industrials and some offshore cash. The offshore cash saved me because the rands devalued a lot in the last 2 weeks. He also holds about 35% local cash which helped a lot. Prior to the last week the financial and industrial shares did quite well and resources went to hell.Anyway he is not upset(probably expected worse) :wink:
