JP: We can win this

Good news, Sharks fans. JP Pietersen will be fit to take his place this weekend in the crunch match against the Crusaders in Durban. Sharksworld caught up with the competition’s top try-scorer for a quick chat.

“We drowned our sorrows on Monday,” JP says of the squad’s reaction to the disappointment of losing in Bloemfontein, “but we came back with a good session on Tuesday and we’re back on track.” The team is committed to not dwelling on the past, because that can’t be changed. “We’re hurting and want to put it right this weekend,” he says. “We’re still very positive that we can go all the way and win this competition.”

Positivity and self-belief are never in short supply when it comes to Pietersen, though, as he himself admits. Talking of his early rugby career, he says that “I didn’t come through the usual route – going to one of the big rugby schools or playing for the SA Schools team. But I always had a great amount of passion and a real will to wear the jersey and join my heroes in the provincial team. That is what got me here and what keeps me going.” His advice to aspiring players is very similar: “Just believe in yourself and don’t ever give up on your dream.”

Our discussion inevitably turns towards what was, by JP’s own standards, a disappointing 2008 campaign, particularly in the Super 14, where he failed to score a single try. Ever honest, he’s the first to admit that, “I didn’t prepare well for the 2008 season. I was tired after a very busy and emotional 2007 season – I had played a lot of rugby and it was difficult to come down to earth after the World Cup.” The lessons learned were carried forward, though and he was determined not to make the same mistakes in 2009; six tries in seven starts this year paints a picture of a player who has his hunger and focus back, in no short supply.

Looking forward to this weekend’s game, Pietersen feels the recipe for success is a simple one. “We’ve got to keep the ball and create opportunities in their 22,” he says. “If we don’t respect the ball and give them possession, we will lose.” He doesn’t buy the argument that the Sharks have a problem with creating tries themselves. “We have all the right players in the right positions, ” he says, “so many talented guys who can make things happen. We just need to concentrate on working together as a team – communicating a bit better – and the opportunities will come.”

Looking ahead, JP is completely focused on winning a Super 14 medal with the Sharks. Facing the British Lions is another goal this season and although he doesn’t want to look too far ahead, staying in South Africa with the Sharks, at least until after the 2011 World Cup is very much in JP’s thinking at this stage. The future looks bright indeed for the Sharks and Springboks with the big former lock in menacing form and hungry for tries. He assures me that his return to the second row for the last few minutes against the Blues earlier this year was indeed a one-off occurrence, though. “My past really caught up with me there,” he quips.

Catch up with JP’s latest news on his official website, www.jppietersen.co.za. We’d like to thank him for his time and wich him and the team all the best for the game on Saturday.

  • @KSA Shark © (Comment 12) : good morning ksa

    call it good investigating :mrgreen:

    witness has it yesterday for sure back will be beast , bissy , sykes
    deysel and
    supersport today has told us jpp and murray and deysel back

    so putting 2 and 2 together is quite simple as bissy had a slight knock that he took in training so they decided to rest him and beast had flu, they are back

    the long term injured players that are back are deysel and murray and jpp thus giving you 6 when including beast bissy and sykes

    remember sykes played off the bench last week and is fit to play

    as i said only ruan will be back next week according to reports

    hargreaves we know it was said he will be out for the super 14

    Well if you’re TT then it will be Stefan’s Fault, In some qurters it’ll be Adi’s Fault, In some quarters it will be Steyn’s fault, if you are bryce it will be Plumtree’s fault.

    There are MANY varied opinions out there.

    Oh and if you are the Bulls it is ALWAYS the refs fault. We all know it will never be a bull who plays(ed) badly. :wink:

  • The gloom following the hiccup of last weekend and the injury bogey that has been lurking around The Sharks’ camp in recent times has passed as the sun edges its way through the clouds to provide a silver lining at the most opportune time with the team preparing for one of the toughest matches they will play all year, against the seven-time champion Crusaders.

    Back in the reckoning are three class players in Waylon Murray, JP Pietersen and Jean Deysel who have had medium to long term injuries, as well as Steven Sykes, Bismarck du Plessis and Beast Mtawarira who were laid low last week with an assortment of minor ailments but have rejoined the team to provide huge impetus going into this final clash ahead of the much-needed bye.

    Jean Deysel will play off the bench and JP Pietersen and Waylon Murray have been bracketed in on the wing. Should Pietersen start, Murray will wear the number 22 jersey ahead of Luzuko Vulindlu.

    The only other changes are in the tight five where Steven Sykes reclaims his starting jersey after a bout of flu and Bismarck du Plessis starts at hooker, affording Springbok captain John Smit a breather off the bench.

    The Sharks

    15. Stefan Terblanche
    14. Odwa Ndungane
    13. Adrian Jacobs
    12. Riaan Swanepoel
    11. JP Pietersen/Waylon Murray
    10. Francois Steyn
    9. Rory Kockott
    8. Ryan Kankowski
    7. Keegan Daniel
    6. Jacques Botes
    5. Johann Muller (Capt)
    4. Steven Sykes
    3. Jannie du Plessis
    2. Bismarck du Plessis
    1. Deon Carstens

    Replacements:
    16. John Smit
    17. Tendai Mtawarira
    18. Albert van den Berg
    19. Jean Deysel
    20. Charl McLeod
    21. Monty Dumond

    Tell you what, I will stick with them for now.

    Maybe just sub the bulls for the Saders but 3 out of 4 is not bad…

  • Bakkies and Matfield is a major loss, Brumby loosies way too good, and Steyn won’t be as effective in his kicking game (line outs without bakkies and matfield not so strong) because the Brumbies back three is dangerous – I heard however Gerard is out?

    If so, pretty even game but Brumbies at home to take it.

  • From a more technical perspective the Bulls have a very flat defense.

    The Brumbies are masters at the short kicks through and the Bulls covering or sweeping defense is not great.

    The game will be won and lost in the breakdown, and there George Smith is just way too street wise for the Bulls youngsters.

    Brumbies are my dark horse for a fourth-place finish.

  • @robdylan (Comment 65) : I think at the end of the pool stages it will be interesting to resurrect that article and compare with the actual log to see just how good (or bad) we all were.

    More artistic merits than the Sharks displayed last weekend.
    The ad is aimed at the broad spectrum rugby supporter, its aim is fun and Im sure not there for artistic accolades. I think it gets its message across brlliantly, which afterall, is what advertising is about.

    Speaking of which has anyone heard the new Nandos radio ad. :twisted:

    Okay let me explain

    Rek = Stretch in English
    Nek = neck

    And he called you Stretch neck or something along those lines.
