The “tjie-tahs”, that is! Juan Smith has been named to start in the number 7 jersey and will take the captain’s armband back from Hendro Scholtz

In some other meaningless changes to the team that got stuffed by the Brumbies last week, Kobus Calldo comes in at tighthead prop for Bees Roux, while Wayne van Heerden moves to lock in place of Nico Breedt. All three of Roux, van Heerden and Breedt have represented the Sharks at various levels over the last few years.

Cheetahs – 15 Hennie Daniller; 14 Danwel Demas, 13 Corne Uys, 12 Meyer Bosman, 11 Jongi Nokwe; 10 Jacques-Louis Potgieter, 9 Tewis de Bruyn; 8 Hendro Scholtz, 7 Juan Smith (capt), 6 Heinrich Brüssow, 5 David de Villiers, 4 Wayne van Heerden, 3 Kobus Calldo, 2 Adriaan Strauss, 1 Wian du Preez.
Subs: 16 Richardt Strauss, 17 Bees Roux, 18 Nico Breedt, 19 Kabamba Floors, 20 Sarel Pretorius, 21 Piet van Zyl, 22 Fabian Juries.


  • Van Heerden has been playing well on the flank.

    Very underrated player.

  • I have just been watching Re-Union.

    SA officials got it horribly wrong at Bloem this week. :sad:

    HTF???? Did the ARs decide that JL Potgieter’s kick at goal was over in the 32nd minute?

    The guys also had a go at Marius Jonker for the try from the quick LO taken in Dbn. The TV footage didn’t show it but they showed a different angle where the ball get’s kicked into touch and bounces into the crowd. Bismarck gets a new ball from the Ball boy and takes a quick throw to see the Sharks score.

    You CANNOT take a quick throw with a new ball. BUT this was not a quick throw it was a quick LO.

    Let’s differentiate between a “Quick LO” and a “Quick throw” for this purpose. The “Quick LO” is where the LO is formed and the ball is thrown quickly without the other team being ready. You can use ANY match ball for that. A “Quick throw” is where the LO is NOT formed and you then have to use the same ball without it having been touched by anyone outside the game for it to be allowed.

    The Canes had more than two players in the LO and therefore it was formed. The Sharks used a new ball but it was used ON the LO mark and so there was nothing wrong with it.

    IT was a Quick LO put in after the LO was formed.
