  • @robdylan (Comment 48) : Rob. I hate to say it…but it is EXACTLY what I expected. Everyone has been going on about how we will whack the Reds, it will be an easy game etc. As I said before, that has a habit of biting you in the backside.
    Looks like the Sharks have been believing all the publicity. Besides the Reds are not a bad side..they have some very skillful players…although we SHOULD be too strong and physical for them. But we are playing completely the wrong game and getting sucked into the way the Reds play!

  • This was the fear – complacency.

    Now is the time for the senior players and leaders to step up and be counted.

    My worry is that THEY are the ones who seem disinterested and lackluster.

    Now is the time for this team to show why they regard themselves as a champion team.

  • Sheesh the Aussies have some skillful backs. If they had a decent front row, we would be in big trouble. Ioane was AWESOME today, our guys couldn’t tackle him. Then there was Barnes and Cooper and even the youngster on the wing, Connor, gave everything

  • Guys, lets all keep our dignity on this:

    No excuses – the Reds outclassed us and the score flatters the Sharks.
    We sucked, horribly
    We obviously believed our own hype – lets not chirp WP about that
    We have miles to go before being serious contenders

    But I cant pretend that I dont wanna flame Rory, Ruan and Frans – damn gloryboys! :evil:

    As for the idiotic insistence on kicking everything that moved…

  • @JarsonX (Comment 64) : Ref was actually quite decent tonight. I don’t believe he had an affect on the result. He did get suckered by the Reds timewasting tactics when they had 14 men and could possibly have yellow carded at least one more of them…but generally we were outplayed and more importantly they wanted it more.

  • Perverse as this might sound, I’m actually REALLY pleased about this result. All the arrogance during the week should now be wiped out and we won’t believe that we simply need to turn up and win. Should also destroy any complacency in the Sharks camp and make them realise that they have to be on top of their game every week in the Super 14

  • I think we played into their hands by kicking the ball up field all the time! Cannot understand why they (Sharks)did not kick it out when they fielded it in the 22! I cannot believe that they tried that tactic on a team that LOVE to run with the ball….that’s exactly the way they (the Reds)played last week…. :???: if the Sharks watched that game :???:

  • There you go… it had to happen sometime… that is a lacklustre performance from playing 15 men instead of 22…

    You cannot maintain 110% with only one 1, one 2, one 10, etc etc etc… Plumtree… very disappointed in your man management pal!
