Ooooh – the big one! Hands up everyone who’s nervous!

The Sharks are at home to the Hurricanes and need at least a four-pointer to stay at the top of the log.

Will Plummo’s boys build on their superb effort against the Brumbies last week?

Or will the dangerous Hurricanes cut the shaky Sharks midfield defence to shreds?

Kick-off in Durban is at 17h05.

Teams:

The Sharks: 15 Stefan Terblanche, 14 Odwa Ndungane, 13 Adrian Jacobs, 12 Riaan Swanepoel, 11 JP Pietersen/Luzuko Vulindlu, 10 Francois Steyn, 9 Rory Kockott, 8 Ryan Kankowski, 7 Keegan Daniel, 6 Jacques Botes, 5 Johann Muller (captain), 4 Steven Sykes, 3 John Smit, 2 Bismarck du Plessis, 1 Tendai Mtawarira.
Replacements: 16 Jannie du Plessis, 17 Deon Carstens, 18 Albert van den Berg, 19 Skholiwe Ndlovu, 20 Charl McLeod, 21 Monty Dumond, 22 Luzuko Vulindlu/Chris Jordaan.

Hurricanes: 15 Cory Jane, 14 Zac Guildford, 13 Conrad Smith, 12 Ma’a Nonu, 11 David Smith, 10 Piri Weepu, 9 Alby Mathewson, 8 Rodney So’oialo (captain), 7 Karl Lowe, 6 Faifili Levave, 5 Jason Eaton, 4 Bryn Evans, 3 Neemia Tialata, 2 Andrew Hore, 1 John Schwalger.
Replacements: 16 Dane Coles, 17 Jacob Ellison, 18 Tim Fairbrother, 19 Api Naikatini, 20 Victor Vito, 21 Willie Ripia, 22 Tamati Ellison.

Referee: Marius Jonker (South Africa)
Touch judges: Joey Salmans (South Africa), Cobus Wessels (South Africa)
TMO: Johann Meuwesen (South Africa)

    You should have seen the one JFourie was penalised for off which the Chiefs scored a converted try!??! And the LIONS turned over the ball in that move after the incident and not enough advantage…so penalty was still given

  • @rekinek (Comment 33) :

    I actually think the big issue this morning was the loose forwards…they completely dominated the Chiefs loose forwards until Grobler got injured…Joubert sent to the bin and Clever got injured and played with a dodgy shoulder for about 0 min is quick succession…
    With the change of rose to 12 and a Andre/Rose midfield not long before all that…
    I think that stretched the LIONS and the Chiefs just hit them up…and the LIONS did not have enough gas to keep defending as they did…

  • I understand why Loffie wanted to do that as he could see that the players were tiering….
    So he wanted to pot for the double kickers in Rose and Andre as it worked very well against the Brumbies….
    But with a topsy turvey loose trio the LIONS backline hardly got good ball and the kicks were not all that great…

    Well done Sharks, you’ve salvaged what would have been a disaster weekend for SA sports. We just need the Proteas to pitch up tomorrow.

  • Very grateful for the won, but jislaaik John Smit got monstered in the scrums. As soon as Jannie Came on, the scrum turned around immediately and started going forward. Worst performance at TH for Smit I have seen. He is still superior to anyone in the world scrumming at hooker.

  • My rant on Smit by no means diminishes Jannie and his performance. He is a superb TH, best in SA right now in my opinion. He scrums very well and also gets around the field a fair bit. Smit is such a good captain, and in my opinion is still a better hooker than Bissie is. Thinking Smit might be best for SA at 2 for the Lions unless he improves dramatically in the next 7 games.

  • The best game of the season for the Sharks.

    Really liked Beast, Swannie and Botes – thought they were great.

    But the Sharks really impressed me by adding muscle when it needed, and flair when it presented itself.

    Adi also had a really good game, has a great feel for play which is why it might not be too far fetched to try him at 10 because Fransie – good as he has been in the 2nd, could have put the Sharks far behind in the first half.

    But most impressed by the Sharks – the best game of the weekend and to be honest, I think most teams would have lost to the Canes today as they were not bad in the least.

    By far the best losing side this weekend.

    Actually they were better in losing than most teams were in winning.

    Well done Sharks.

  • I suppose it is nice having his versatility for the Boks. If he is captain and will play 80 minutes, he only has to play 50 or 60 at hooker and can hold up his end for 20 minutes or so at TH. Just think he will get monstered in the scrums at TH against the Lions if he starts.

  • @Morné (Comment 124) : Bissie is a fantastic rugby player, but Smit still edges him in the scrums and throw-ins. If today is any indication, Smit can not hold his own at 3 on the international stage. (But hey, someone disagree with me if I am off on some rant here. :grin: )

  • Oh, and in case you didn’t know, I still think the world of Smit, best captain in world rugby, superb player, and leader of note. Not really fair to ask someone at his stage in his career to try to switch to probably the most technical position in the scrum. He is a beast, huge and strong, but clearly his inexperience shows at TH. I think you will see him have good games at TH, but an experienced, strong LH will figure him out (I think). I’m sorry Bissie, you may have to wait just a little longer to be the Bok 2.

    re: jannie , john and bissie – i view rugby as a team sport – so i always see things in terms of combinations and team dynamics – and this makes john indispensible and right – he is best hooker than tighhead. but the bis better than jannie – eish

    I am afraid DB is spot on dude.

    @Dancing Bear (Comment 133) :

    Where I find it fascinating that Plummo (who is technically very good) has Smit at 3 (where Jannie is technically better) and Bissie at 2 (where John is technically better).

    @Dancing Bear (Comment 134) :

    Haha, dude, being a 9 I have been next to tightehads and looseheads all my life – I think I know more about scrumming than most refs!

I sail (a lot) race sailing boats and one boat that I owned and campaigned for many years I named Dancing Bear. Always thought it would be a good name for a boat. Has kind of stuck since, even though I don’t own that boat anymore, My crew and I are always known as Dancing Bear, no matter what boat we sail.

  • @Morné (Comment 136) : I think Plummo playing Smit at 3 is purely at the behest of the Bok coach. Which is fine, I understand the choice he made to try John at 3, and perhaps it will work with time, but I think against the Lions Smit should start at 2 with Bissie on the bench. Perhaps in a year or by the next RWC, John will be a world class 3 and then it will be Bissie’s turn in the 2 jersey. He is young yet, especially for a front rower.

    Morne, dude, you 9s know more about everything than anyone when on a rugby pitch, more about refereeing than the ref, more about scrumming than the scrum. :wink: We just love to have you on our side. It is the opposition 9 we hate! :lol:

  • Awesome game… entire 22 must be commended… keep Smit at 2 though this TH thing does not work… far better balance rotating the front-row with two hookers… anyone pay attention to how much graft Muller got through… he’s my bench man for the Boks after this season… in fact it would be difficult to drop any of the Sharks 22 from a Bok squad…

  • @bryce_in_oz (Comment 150) : yes but he made some shocking decisions as captain. the team seemed to lose its way when john smit left the field. that definitely says something about the man. and everyone moaning about smit at th never noticed that jannie wasn’t much better. i think it was more a case of the forwards over thinking what they needed to do that they forgot the basics.
