Semi Final Jitters


Written by Maria Delport (Letgo)

Posted in :Admin, Currie Cup, Original Content, Sharks on 7 Oct 2008 at 14:30

With exactly 5 days to go until the Sharks play the Lions at Kings Park for a place in the final I must admit there’s this feeling at the pit of my stomach that I just can’t get rid of.

It is not a feeling of doom, not at all. I am confident each time the Sharks reach this stage of a competition. I know when looking at the team and looking at their last five performances that this team could beat any other team. I know that aside from a couple of players I would feel comfortable with this particular team going on the end of year tour for the Springboks and I would also feel confident in the fact that they could win most of their games in Europe. Yet I can’t shake this feeling, I’ve felt this confident before and it has always turned out really bad for me. I have semi final jitters, I can only hope the Sharks players are in a better state of mind than I am.

Here I am going over so many things in my mind, trying to calm myself down, trying to convince myself that this time it will be different. We played all the teams in the play-offs in the past couple of weeks and still reaching our top form we beat all of these teams with relative comfort. Only two weeks ago we beat the Lions in their own back yard breaking a 12 year hoodoo, this must give us some kind of edge? Here we are playing against a team in the semi final, who in their last two games clearly never fought for a win, as far as I could see they never even really believed they could win, their only aim was to scrape through and get the points they need to stay in the fight for a place in the play-offs. We ended in the top spot of the Currie Cup log, we’re playing in front of a home crowd. We just had the perfect warm-up game, we seem to be smoothing out any small problems we might have had, we have minimal injuries and we have more than 10 players in our team that will most probably be in the end of year squad. On the other hand the Lions just played in a battle of a match, not doing much more than putting their bodies on the line in defense, this game really would not have been ideal as a warm-up match and even though they have plenty of players in their team with potential I count only one or two guy’s who might be selected in a Springbok team. Why after all of this do I still get that feeling of slight nausea every time I even think of this game?

The Sharks had a great game this weekend, aside from a period of play in the second half when Plumtree made many of his replacements, the Sharks looked clean and clinical with a bit of flair from a couple of players. A guy like Keegan Daniel showed that he could add value to any team, aside from his good supportive play, flair and pace he also proved that he might be small, but gaining ground with 5 of his 9 carries he could also be an effective ball carrier. It also seems that with Keegan as a smaller loosie Francois Steyn shared some of his responsibilities with him. He was used to crash the ball over the advantage line 5 times and gained ground with these drives 3 times. Just to make it clear, these are runs he made when he was used as a second ball carrier and not from inside center or from loose ball.

The guys that worked the hardest in this game, but would never get the glory for their grunt work were Jacques Botes and Steven Sykes. Out of 63 attacking rucks these guys were involved at 43 with Botes the dominant partner in this combination cleaning out 24 rucks. The player cleaning out the third most is Steyn with 12. And just because this is always a talking point on this site, Steyn had possession of the ball 24 times, he passed 10 times, he ran 9, 4 of which was go forward ball and 2 line breaks, the other 5 was kicks.

Setting all stats aside and just looking at the game and players overall. The first 40min is how we really want to play, after that Plumtree was trying to save his first choice players, but he should never make replacements like he did in this game. I don’t really think it’s a problem with who came on and where they played, but more because of the amount of players that was changed in a very short while. Ryan Kankowski was our flair and if he could play like this for two more games…well I’d rather not say it. I would definitely rather swap Ruan to 10 with Kockett coming on to 9 than switching Steyn to 10 and Barritt coming on at 12. Kockett is a great impact player and Ruan has proven his worth at 10.

The Lions are a good team, they’re especially good on the ground, but the Sharks has guys like Botes and Deysel who can more than stand their ground.

Just talking stats and facts and looking at the quality of our players some of my nausea is replaced with a little more calm, it’s a semi final and anyone can win it, all bets are of right, but I’m thinking we’ll take this one by more than 15 and then I’m looking forward to and dreading the Bulls in the final.

  • Nice article.

    Glad that Steyn is being given doing the hard graft, and less of the show-boating – thats what I want to see in a 12.

    No mention of JPP’s great game? He must have made some massive meters for us.

    I think that individually, Botes and Deysel can compete on the ground with Baywatch or Joubert; the difference is that the Sharks play a lot more away from their pack, and use their loosies as strike runners a lot more – hence we aren’t always at a ruck in the same numbers as they are.

    I see it as a necessary evil; as long as we convert the chances we create, we will not suffer unduly from the turnovers we will occasionally concede.

  • Nice read Letgo.

    Jp has a new found belief in himself. He is now willing to take contact at pace and while going forward. Waylon Murray also seems to have drunk from the same chalice. Someone has obviously been working with them and the results are really promosing.

    It takes a special kind of player to get to those positions.

    There is room for improvement for the kid, but man, look at how far he has come in 2 short years!

    If only Brad Barrit had improved in a similar vein… :twisted:

  • There is nothing on keo suggesting what you are saying sharks_lover, trust me the majority of posters saying that the lions are gonna win are Bulls supporters or ones that don’t like the sharks…and it stands to reason cause they quite frankly are afraid of playing you guys..and so they should be.

    Yea I did..unfortunatly I’ll be missing it…just my luck..hopefully I should be back from my run to BIAP before the second half of the Bulls/Cheetahs game.

    Pretty pissed about missing the game although I really cannot see the Lions pulling off a win on Sat..I just hope they manage to give a good account of themselves.

  • Great article Letgo, especially considering the fact that you did not really go into an in-depth analysis of the previous game. The parts where you gave those stats was once again tops.

    I also like your personal approach and like you, I think we ALL have those jitters.

    But then, what would rugby be without those jitters?

  • Great article and I agree about the nervousness. It’s been building since right after the game last week and it tripled in size since.

    Of course, the nervousness is accompanied by a great deal of excitment and anticipation since that it has been decided that if the guys roll over the Lions, I’ll be booking myself on flights out to do another SA rugby weekend for the final.

    It’s like my own personal visa commercial

    Long term parking at the airport – 50.00 USD
    Flying 40+ hours over the course of a weekend – 1600.00 USD
    Seeing the Sharks in the Final live – Priceless

  • 12 years of choking makes fans weary. i have the same feeling in my gut. i think it is more a fact of me not trying to get excited in case i get let down again. so in my mind this weekends game is the final pool match. and the sharks are in a home final on the 25th of october regardless.

  • You Sharks better hope the Lions actually plan to play rugby as opposed to standing in a straight line and defending like they did last week.

  • Were gonna win
    Dont wanna be a loser – gonna win
    Cuz winnin really is the only thing
    Get out of the way were comin in
    If ya wanna fight just step inside the ring
    Does anybody wanna take a swing?
    Its gotta be all or nothing
    Oh were gonna be the champions
    Ya were goin all the way – were gonna win win

    Were gonna win
    Forget about a draw – were gonna score
    And then were gonna get a few more
    Maybe another one just to be sure
    Well make ya look just like an amateur
    Until the final whistle its a war
    And then were gonna pick ya off the floor
    We wanna hear the crowd really roar
    Ya – were comin in were gonna win win

  • Hier kort duskant middernag stap Gammat lekker geswaai saam met ?n nuwe pel straat af. By n sekere huis in die straat gaan hy staan. Sjien djy daai hekkie? vra hy swaar van tong. Disj nou my hekkie daai. Hy sleep sy vriend saam met hom voordeur toe. Sjien djy die stoep? Disj nou my sjtoepie die. Hy stoot die deur oop en sleep die pel deur die voorportaal, gang af. Sjien djy die badsjkamer? Disj nou my badsjkamer die. By die slaapkamer aangekom, stoot hy saggies aan die halfoop deur en se: Sjien djy nou die double bed? Disj nou my double bed daai. En sien djy die vroutjie daar op die bed? Dis nou my vroutjie….. En sjien djy daai outjie daar langsj haar? Disj nou ekke.

  • Lawrence will be charged with lewd behavior, public indecency, and public intoxication at the Gwynedd County courthouse on Monday.

    The suspect explained that as he was passing a pumpkin patch he decided to stop.
    “You know, a pumpkin is soft and squishy inside, and there was no one around for miles. At least I thought there wasn’t” he stated in a phone interview. (A what?)

    Lawrence went on to say that he pulled over to the side of the road, picked out a pumpkin that he felt was appropriate to his purpose (a good looking one, presumably!), cut a hole in it, and proceeded to satisfy his alleged ‘need.’ “Guess I was really into it, you know?” he commented with evident embarrassment.

    In the process, Lawrence apparently failed to notice a Gwynedd County police car approaching and was unaware of his audience until Officer Brenda Taylor approached him.

    “That was an unusual situation, that’s for sure,” said Officer Taylor. “I walked up to Lawrence and he’s…just pumping away at this pumpkin.”

    Taylor went on to describe what happened when she approached Lawrence.

    “I just went up and said, ‘Excuse me sir, but do you realize that you’re having sex with a pumpkin?’ ”

    He froze and was clearly very surprised that I was there, and then looked me straight in the face and said……

    A pumpkin? F * *k me, is it midnight already?”

    The blonde beauty – who lives with the Playboy founder in his Los Angeles mansion – has finally revealed she is no longer romancing the 82-year-old magazine mogul.

    When a paparazzo asked her how he could get into Hugh’s infamous Halloween party, Holly replied: “I have no pull anymore. Hef and I aren’t together.”

    However, Holly says despite the split, she is still living in the house so she can complete her filming obligations for E! reality TV show The Girls Next Door.

    “We are all still filming stuff together. We’re having fun. The sixth season is going to be even better. We love season five, but I think every season gets better,” she said.

    Hugh – who also lives with Kendra Wilkinson and Bridget Marquardt – recently refused to be drawn on claims his relationship with Holly had hit the rocks.

    “It’s all rumours without question. We have just completed our fifth season, and we’re all still together,” he said.

    “There may be some transitions to the relationships though, we’ll see.”

  • @try time (Comment 131) : I’ll have to work on my spelling of the players names, I know exactly how many passes he gave and how many balls he knocked on, but I don’t know to spell his name with a K…embarrassing. Why the hell does the spell check not help me out with this… :smile:

    By the way, I agree 100% with how the Lions played against WP, everything they did was to insure that WP had to work hard and play very smart for their 4 tries, and on the day WP weren’t good enough to counter Loffies game plan.
    They won’t play like that against the Sharks, they need to win this game, there was no need to take chances with that game. WP got themselves in that position, and the Lions got themselves into a position where they didn’t need to win the last game.

  • The Sharks have got to watch the negative play and not be sucked into the drama. We must play for ourselves and not for the Lions. I remember the semi last year, we fell into that exact trap, the Lions played negative, slow rugby, and we had no way to counter. Was extremely frustrating, but the Lions know thats how to get at us. Granted, we were missing all our springboks (I think Waylon had had just been shipped out?), and we times our injuries badly… Different ballgame this time…

    That semi was the slowest most boring game of rugby the entire season just about, which is just as much our fault as yours.

    Exactly.

    I think it was someone on here or one of the other blogs that mentioned that our biggest problem is this concern with wanting to play attractive rugby.

    If i was a coach I would teach my team to win. If i copped flak on the way becasue I was playing ugly/negative rugby then so be it.

  • The last week or so I have been reading and being told my various Province and Sharks supporters how negative the Lions are.Also suddenly Hienke is scrumming illegal and Baywatch cheats on the ground ala Mccaw..nothing can be further from the truth..the simple fact is Hienke has been scrumming guys backwards now for a better part of 2 years..and strangly enough not a single ref has been blowing him up constantly..he scrums well thats it!
    Baywatch is good on the ground and also has been for sometime now if he is such a cheat what would that make Schalk then..

    I don’t buy into this nonsense and I’m very pleased with the brand of Rugby that loffie has instiled at the Lions..long may it continue.

    Thats my rant for the day :cool:

  • @CoffeeShopBok;-) (Comment 163) :
    CSB, all players cheat – by testing the rules. Thats slightly different from being a drug cheat or punching a player when he is defenceless. Schalk, Botes etc all do the same.

    In my opinion, the Lions front row does scrum illegally – and my issue is more with the ref not picking that up, rather than the Lions doing what they can to gain an advantage.

    I also believe that the Lions play a spoiling game, but again, I don’t have an issue with that – I’m glad we don’t play that style, but thats a personal preference – if you win, thats what counts; ask Jake White.

  • @Big Fish (Comment 164) :

    I agree that players have to push the envelope at the breakdown and a player gets away with it then good on him and the team.As for your opnion on the Lions front row scrumming illegally I can’t say I know the intricacies of front row play but imo the Lions front row have been pretty dominant for sometime now and they have been reffed by more than SA refs for a time now..so is it likely that all the super14 refs have managed to miss this..?

    Look the Lions have gotten a bad rap since the Stormers super14 match and now with last weeks game against Province and they did what was needed to ‘contain’ the scoreline.

    But this is not a tactic that the Lions adapt for all their games.

But hey he must have something besides money… can’t think what though. I wonder if he likes Rugby? Perhaps he is a Bulls supporter, that team does seem to attract some weird fans, and they play in pale blue as well.
