Sharks are Champions


Written by Andre Bosch (KSA Shark ©)

Posted in :Bulls, Currie Cup, In the news, Sharks on 26 Oct 2008 at 07:47

The Sharks emerged narrow, but deserved 14-9 victors in the final of the Absa Currie Cup to be crowned Champions on Saturday at The Absa Stadium Durban.

Captain Johann Muller

Michael Marnewick writes for Sharksrugby.co.za that it might have been a long time in the making, but boy does victory taste sweet. The Sharks were made to work hard for their win, but there seemed a collective belief driving them, one where, for the players, the result was non-negotiable and as was earlier said in dispatches, it was the team who wanted it more who won and the Sharks always seemed to be the ones asking the questions of the Bulls.

It was always going to be a close result and the five point margin of victory was testament to the excellent defensive effort from the visitors. However, two tries to none told the story of a team who were able to better create – and finish – opportunities and despite the best efforts of the Bulls, the Sharks were simply too committed, too physical and too good on defence.

It was trench warfare out there as finals should be, and as games between the Sharks and Bulls always unfold, there was no holding back as the two sides hammered away at each other.

Ruan Pienaar eyed a gap, took his chances and scored the opening try of the game to get the Sharks into a good position in the first half, and he constantly asked questions of the Bulls.

A narrow 7-3 lead to the Sharks at the break meant it was still anyone’s game, but in truth, the Sharks always seemed to have their noses in front and it was the Bulls who were playing catch-up rugby.

The game was played at helter-skelter pace from start to finish and Francois Steyn rounded off a move to put the Sharks well into the lead, Frederic Michalak slotting the conversion to mark a successful and sentimental end to his season with the Sharks. Stefan Terblanche too played a vintage match that was testament to his experience and calmness and he failed to put a foot wrong all game, giving the Sharks immense stability at the back. When recollections of this match are made in time, people will have to acknowledge what an outstanding team spirit was able to achieve under the astute coaching of John Plumtree and his management group.

Scorers

Sharks: 14 (7)
Tries: Ruan Pienaar, Francois Steyn
Conversions: Ruan Pienaar (1), Frederic Michalak (1)

Blue Bulls: 9 (3)
Drop-Goal: Morne Steyn (1)
Penalty: Morne Steyn (2)

  • It felt so good walking out of school, after dropping the kids this morning, bumping into the only Bulls supporter on the Staff.

    I think he JUST managed to turn away before I could smile and say good morning to him. :razz:

  • The Sharks imo wasted quite a lot of chances, should have had a bigger winning margin. Nearly choked again(at least could have), but having said that, the defence on both sides were top class.

    We don’t move in the same circles but I am sure he has heard my comments. :mrgreen:

    With us being involved with an American school some of the American teachers have commented that our family doesn’t sound anything like the other South African Families on campus.

    I then proceed to explain that it is sort of like comparing a Southern hillbilly to an American from California. It is a totally different culture and almost a different language.

    With Sharks supporters being from California and Bull supporters being the HillBillies. :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

    Comments like “your children are really managing well with English” Amuse the crap out of me sometimes. :mrgreen:

  • @Silver Fox (Comment 2) : When you’re a Sharks supporter like me, you can always just take the “glass is half full” approach rather than half empty and accept that we won. The trophy doesn’t have a section for “match comments”.

    Give credit where it is due methinks.

  • In two evenly matched forward packs, Beast, Bismarck and Deysel came out tops due to their superior strength. Those three makes a mockery of the word ‘power’.

    The back line of the Sharks were superior, with Stefan my man of the match. And JPP, great dude, you are now starting to show your superior abilities. I say starting, for I believe you can become one of the very best.

    I’ll never forget the 1995 Victory in Dbn. The next morning we had a road race that went past the stadium. There were still a few people milling around at around 5am when we went past the Stadium.

    I would love to see what the place looks like this morning. :mrgreen:

    At least a WP SUPPORTER won something even if WP didn’t. :wink:

    Blue Bulls fan 10x over limit
    26/10/2008 23:01 – (SA)

    Hilda Fourie, Beeld

    Pretoria – One of several Blue Bull supporters who had to sleep it off in the police cells on Saturday night, had almost ten times more than the permitted percentage of alcohol in his blood.

    The man’s blood alcohol level was 0.239?g/100?ml – compared to the legal limit of 0.024?g/100?ml for drivers.

    I was just watching rugby.

    “I didn’t do anything wrong,” the man said before he was taken to the Sunnyside police station where he spent the night.

    He was one of ten men, some of them dejected Blue Bulls supporters, who ran into another group of men in blue – this time from Tshwane metro police – at a road block at Spaghetti Junction east of Hatfield, Pretoria.

    The man had been on his way to drop off a friend when he was pulled over.

    The breath of another fan, disappointed after the Bulls lost to the Sharks in the Currie Cup final, pushed the breathaliser to 0.05?g/100?ml – more than double the permitted percentage.

    “I’m in my moer now,” the man said.

    “It’s choices and consequences,” he added laconically.

    A third man’s blood alcohol reading was 0.221?g/100?ml.

    Metro police spokesperson, Senior Superintendent Alta Fourie, said when a person’s blood alcohol level exceeded 0.250?g/100?ml it entered the danger zone and the person could end up in hospital.

    “The public think we’re heartless.

    “We feel sorry for them, but we have to enforce the law and the traffic regulations.

    “The metro police must bear in mind not only the rules, but also the safety of the other road users.”

    The arrested men were taken to the Sunnyside police station, and then to a district surgeon who tested their blood alcohol levels.

    They spent Saturday night behind bars.

    hello Rob, u must be very happy today.
    Beast has also become huge in the scrum.
    Gerber was taught a wee lesson me thinks.
    Great game, both very good sides.

    Sykes, maybe
    Deysel Surely

    Had I been asked to answer that question before the boks were back in the CC, then I would probably have adopted a wait and see attitude. But they have played well even when the boks were back.

    will be key to the sharks prospects in S14, ackerman and aj are going to be big boots to fill. gut reaction is they need at least one more S14 season to establish their prescence/confidence, but looked damn good in CC.

    True. Filing those boots won’t be easy, Sykes has a way to go to match Ackermann in the LOs but I think Deysel will be a more than able replacement for AJ.

    BTW, seeing as you are the only Lions fans on at the moment. I see Ernst Joubert is having a wrist operation and will be out for 5 months. How unlucky is this guy with injuries?

    damn unlucky, very good player too ernst. loffie’s depth plundered every year, 1 or 2 injuries and scraping barrell. lock is real problem.

    You know if freddy playing in S14, or wonder if pienaar or steyn will shift to 10?

  • @cab (Comment 73) : Fred is going back to Frans. I guess Pienaar will shift to 10…otherwise none of this would make sense.
