Lions CAN beat the odds!

This Saturday at 17:05 one of the biggest clashes of the Currie Cup season kicks off at Coca Cola Park when the Lions host the Sharks in a game that the Lions must win to ensure a place in the semi-finals, and the Sharks need a win to stay at the top of the Currie Cup Log.

Most people, even a fair number of Lions supporters, are saying that the Lions will not be able to win this one, but can I just remind all these people predicting a Sharks win that the Lions team thrive on situations like this, when no-one gives us a chance of victory, that is when we beat the odds and pull off the surprise victories!

I agree that the Sharks team looks impressive on paper, with few weak points, but then again there are some players in the Sharks side that can sometimes lose the plot, and if it happens to all of these players on the same day (Saturday), it could play into the hands of the Lions.

Also take note of the fact that the Sharks last tasted victory in a Currie Cup match in Johannesburg in 1996, and it shows that they might not have what it takes to win this crucial match.

Lets take a closer look at the teams: The Sharks pack is awesome, with perhaps the only slightly weak points at Tighthead, where Heinke will hopefully have the better of Jannie, and perhaps “Oom” Albert van den Berg, who is probably only in the team because his grandson is one of the selectors.

The Lions are excellent in the line-outs, so this is going to be a battle where the Lions might have a slight upper hand.

The Loosies, here it should be an even battle, with both teams sporting two seasoned campaigners and one youngster.

It’s in the backline where I think the Lions have the upper hand, and will pull this one through for us. Our guys are all willing to run at the opponents, and they are all good at it, with our backs scoring an impressive 17 tries in our last three matches (the forwards scored six). Luckily they face opposition like Ruan Pienaar, who does not like to take contact at all, and normally takes a breather after being tackled, and then off course Francois Steyn at Inside Centre, a huge mistake as he is going to attempt a drop goal with every ball he gets, thereby ensuring that the ball never gets to the Sharks outside centre and wings.

The Sharks Flyhalf, Michalak, also blows hot and cold, and can be quite shocking on one of his off days, so we will have to see what he does on Saturday. On a bad day, he can single handedly win the game for the Lions!

Anyway, enough of the serious stuff, the union provided me with a suite for this match where I will be entertaining 40 of the regulars of the forum on my website at www.transvaal.co.za, so this is promising to be a great day. We are also having a braai on the corner of 8th and Miller from about 13:30, if any of you Sharkies want to come and say hi!

  • My initial thoughts are the Cheetahs are probably favourites to go through ahead of WeePee despite the points difference.
    One big win against the Valke and it’s all over bar the shouting.

    WP might also find it difficult to score 4 tries in the mudbath like we did last week. If they fail to get the 4 tries, that’s their season. We are going to beat them next week at Newlands anyway.

    We already klapped you 27-13 in Jozi, but that’s before we clicked…next week your team is going to be vulnarable when they’ve got nothing to play for…expect a big score for the Lions!

  • I have to agree that I don’t think the Sharks will walk all over the Lions, but if the Sharks wanna win the CC they should be able to beat any team anywhere. The Sharks SHOULD win the CC, IF and only IF they are mentally stronger than the last couple of years

  • Lions may beat the odds, but not the Sharks. the duke of earl will get smeared and open the floodgates for the sharks numbers 6-12 to go through the channel. lions forwards will work their heart out but their backs will let them down again. fourie to go off with an injury in the first quarter is my prediction. as for scoreline depends when earl gets the walloping.

  • Apparently the Lions have scored the most tries out of the big 5 teams. They’ve also leaked the most – that puts them back on the starting blocks… :???:

  • i was looking for the end of the week jokes thread, glad to have at least found a daydreams and fairytales one…

    here’s a couple more to keep in the mood…

    Many a young woman is dreaming of finding an older man with a strong will – made out to her

    Three dreams of a man:
    To be as handsome as his mother thinks.
    To be as rich as his child believes.
    To have as many women as his wife suspects…

    Fairy Tale…
    Eendag lank lank gelede was daar n vrou wat nie vol kak was nie
    Maar dit was fokken lank gelede en ook net daai een dag.

  • @just blackshark (Comment 32) : I think that’s the gist of the article, Walter trying to put on a brave face, using a stick against a Panza Tank!

    I think the LIons loosies may well wint he battle of the breakdown, but ours will be better in the lose. Front row is similar – ours much better in the loose.

    While I concede that the Lions backs play exciting rugby, they have scored loads of tries against poor teams and that’s not where you measure yourself.

    Sharks backline has game breakers.

    Frans kicking drops from all over creates doubt in the mind of the oppo. Don’t always come off, but all we need is a win, and if Frans drops the match-winning kick to give the Sharks a 1 point victory, criticism of him will be lost in the euphoria.

    Sorry Walter, I like your confidence, but there is only one team in this game. And it ain’t the home side….

    He’s had offers from the North, some as far as France. With the little match time he is currently getting, no one can blame him for considering them.

  • Nah, all good. Work and social activities keeping me rather busy these days.
    Tonight we’re playing the final game for the season, me on flank again. Looking forward, can’t wait to tackle, clean and score that ever-eluding 1st try for my club!!!!

    Rob, how’s your rugga coming along?

    Desert flippen awesome, specially from as viewed from a bicycle. Did a cycling trip a month ago from Windhoek to Swakopmund via gravel road through the Khomas Hochland, Nauklooft park and Namib. Some 320km’s, I only missed about 60kms, whole of the rest my arse was firmly on the saddle.
    Looking at entering a team for Swakopmund Half Iron in Dec, need to start swimming!
