Now here’s a first. The Sharks playing a New Zealand team, in New Zealand, with a South African ref!

Will the Blues build on a reasonable victory in Cape Town last week and beat the Sharks for the first time in the Super 14?

Or will the Sharks take advantage of the Blues jetlag and a potentially sympathetic referee to record a fourth successive win?

Teams:

Blues: 15 Isaia Toeava, 14 Paul Williams, 13 Anthony Tuitavake, 12 Jamie Helleur, 11 Joe Rokocoko, 10 Jimmy Gopperth, 9 Taniela Moa, 8 Chris Lowrey, 7 Onosa’i Auva’a, 6 Jerome Kaino, 5 Ali Williams, 4 Kurtis Haiu, 3 John Afoa, 2 Keven Mealamu (captain), 1 Tony Woodcock.
Replacements: 16 Tom McCartney, 17 Charlie Faumuina, 18 Jay Williams, 19 Josh Blackie, 20 Chris Smylie, 21 Michael Hobbs, 22 Benson Stanley.

The Sharks: 15 Stefan Terblanche, 14 Odwa Ndungane, 13 Adrian Jacobs, 12 Francois Steyn, 11 JP Pietersen, 10 Ruan Pienaar, 9 Rory Kockott, 8 Ryan Kankowski, 7 Keegan Daniel, 6 Jacques Botes, 5 Johann Muller (captain), 4 Steven Sykes, 3 Jannie du Plessis, 2 Bismarck du Plessis, 1 Tendai Mtawarira
Replacements: John Smit, Deon Carstens, Alistair Hargreaves, Skholiwe Ndlovu, Ross Cronjé, Riaan Swanepoel, Luzuko Vulindlu.

Referee: Marius Jonker (South Africa)
Touch judges: Chris Pollock (New Zealand), Willie Roos (South Africa)
TMO: Ben Skeen (New Zealand)

  • Aaah, that was worth getting up at 6am for.

    Guys, we really are too hard on our boys.

    Remember that we played into the wind and sun in the 1st half, and then came back and still locked them out in the 2nd.

    This Blues team is gonna still win a few, and were desperate for a home win – with guys like Meealamu, Woodcock, Afoa, Williams, Kaino, Rockoco and Toeva, they are no pushovers.

    I thought the loosies were superb today – Daniel especially was quick and yet also very hard to bring down. The T5 did a great job, and I agree that Muller had a blinder.

    Amongst the backs, Rory, Adi and JPP were excellent, and Stefan did a lot more good than bad – he offers us great stability at the back and is one of the best under the high ball and in kicking the up-and-under.

    My only slight concern was Ruan – he didnt look very fluent, but credit to him: he made sure the ball went wide.

  • Sharks grab full house against Blues

    by Gavin Rich | 07 March 2009 (08:30)

    The Sharks’ Vodacom Super 14 challenge started to gain impressive momentum in Auckland on Saturday morning as Johann Muller’s team scored a 35-31 win over the Blues.

    The Sharks have not been beaten by the Blues since the Super competition was expanded to include 14 teams, and they maintained their dominance over their old rivals with a win that was far more comprehensive than the narrow winning margin might suggest.

    The Blues scored a late consolation try to Joe Rocokoco, but in reality the Kiwis were a beaten team long before that as the Sharks took control of the game in the second half.

    There were several outstanding performances from the Sharks, who picked up a four-try bonus point en route to their victory, but no-one stood out more than Springbok centre Adrian Jacobs, who is continuing the rich vein of form he established last year.

    Jacobs repeatedly wrong-footed the Blues defenders, and in so doing created the space needed for the Sharks’ attacking opportunities.

    It was his run though from a turn-over ball deep in Sharks territory that set the Sharks on the road to victory. Wing Odwa Ndungane started the move when the Sharks turned over a Blues loose-scrum, Jacobs found himself in space, and he swivelled this way and that as he created the advantage in numbers which enabled JP Pietersen to score off the switch.

    That made it 7-3 to the Sharks after eight minutes, cancelling out an early penalty from Jimmy Gopperth, and after that the Sharks were always significantly better in everything they did than their opponents, who just made too many mistakes and didn’t protect their possession enough to really sustain a challenge.

    However, that early long-range try might have seduced the Sharks into thinking they could ignore the basics of the territory game, for they did play too much rugby in their own half before the break, and this played a big role in allowing the Blues to remain competitive on the scoreboard.

    A Steven Sykes infringement enabled the Blues to cut the deficit to one point through another Gopperth penalty, but Rory Kockott, another stand-out performer for the Sharks, kicked one for the Sharks to make it 10-6 before the Blues profited from a silly Sharks decision to tap a penalty inside their 22.

    The Sharks made the mistake that enabled the Blues to set an attacking scrum in the middle of the field, and it was from this that they created the extra man going left with a set-move that realised a try for fullback Isaiah Toeava.

    The conversion meant the Sharks were down 13-10 at a stage when they were dominating, but they restored order with a perfectly-placed Stefan Terblance hoisted kick that pressurised Jerome Kaino to make the mistake that saw flanker Jacques Bote grab the loose ball and score in the corner.

    But the Sharks could easily have been punished again for their dithering in their own half of the field, with an intercept of a Kockott pass following a dummy from a defensive situation almost leading to a try for his opposite number, and it was a missed clearance that created the pressure late in the half that led to a Gopperth penalty that cut the score to 20-16 at the break.

    The Sharks paid greater respect for territory early in the second half, and also great control, and this led to a try to Sykes which, coupled with an early penalty from Kockott, put the Sharks two scores ahead at 30-16.

    The Blues did launch a late rally in their desperate attempt to win the game, and the gap was cut to nine by a Gopperth try, but some heroic defence from the Sharks, plus a bit of good fortune, led to a Sharks try at the opposite side of the field that effectively wrapped up the match.

    The defence led Rocokoco to spill a ball on the line when a try looked there for the taking, the good fortune was referee Marius Jonker failing to spot that Johann Muller was in an off-side position when he made the tackle.

    Keegan Daniel kicked the ball through off Rocokoco’s knock-on, Stefan Terblanche chased, and from a resultant attacking lineout the Sharks rumbled it up to score through Springbok skipper John Smit, who played the entire second half at tighthead.

    It was the Sharks’ first four-try bonus point of the season and lifted them to second position on the log behind the Waratahs.

    Scores

    Blues 31 – Tries: Isaiah Toeava, Jimmy Gopperth and Joe Rocokoco; Conversions: Gopperth 2; Penalties: Gopperth 4.

    Sharks 35 – Tries: JP Pietersen, Jacques Botes, Steven Sykes, John Smit; Conversions: Rory Kockott 3; Drop-goal: Rory Kockott; Penalties: Rory Kockott 2.
