Burden starts, but Kanko doubtful

Craig Burden will start at hooker for the Sharks against Western Province in Cape Town this weekend. Four of the five returning Boks have been included, but Ryan Kankowski will appear off the bench at best and will need to pass a late fitness test.

Bok props Deon Carstens and Jannie du Plessis will provide a strong platform on either side of Burden, while the second row combination of Steven Sykes and captain Johann Muller is a settled one. Keegan Daniel, who is next in line to captain the side should Muller rejoin the Boks next week, starts in the number 8 jersey, with his “twin” Jean Deysel on the blindside and Jacques Botes in number 6. Kankowski has been bracketed with Justin Downey in the number 19 shirt, while the old firm of Albert van den Berg and Skipper Badenhorst will cover lock and hooker respectively. Pat Cilliers, named as reserve prop, will hope to regains the form that made him one of the real finds of the 2007 Currie Cup, before a serious knee injury took him out of the game for over a year.

The backline has a very experimental look, to say the least.

Rory Kockott, Stefan Terblanche and Oddwa Ndungane are at their posts as usual, with a number of new and familiar faces filling in the blanks. Rookie guy Cronjé will be at flyhalf and has been rewarded for some promising form in the warmup game against the Pumas. Riaan Swanepoel, who operated at inside centre for much of the Super 14, will again occupy the number 12 jersey, while the ever-dependable, if not incredibly exciting Andries Strauss will operate outside him. Luzuko Vulindlu will wear the left wing jersey made available by JP Pietersen’s Bok commitments.

Charl McLeod, Monty Dumond and Chris Jordaan will be the backline replacements, while Lwazi Mvovo can probably consider himself more than just a little unlucky to miss out on the 22 this week.

    Pity Ryan has an injury
    And i see there is still no confirmation about hernandez , wish we knew the answer to him comming or not

    We look very thin at the back , Guy Cronje is good but not a string defender and if Swannie got injured early id get very worried

  • @sharks_lover (Comment 8) : I must say, I didn’t think that Burden would start. Very pleased about that, though.

    Really wish they’d pick somebody else at 13… even if they just switch the centres it would be better.

    I must say burden deserves to start rob , he was very good last week in the warm up game , and thats why i took a chance of putting him in , and glad plum also saw it that way . craig is a hard player

  • @robdylan (Comment 10) : 13 is a problem and according to Plum , murray is still 2 weeks away

    Although Strauss did well and defend like a demon last friday he is so slow
    but he was 12

    Vulindlu played 13 but wasnt in the game and got caught out of position a lot and strauss had to cover defensively for him

  • @robdylan (Comment 10) : Agree with you on this one, happy to see Craig start and I honestly believe they should have playe Vulindlu at 13 and MVOVO at wing. Oh well just have to pray that he has learnt to catch a ball and picked up some speed since S14 :???:

  • sheez i am too scared to post on this article, baldrick is on fire. must be that time of the month. :oops: only change i would have made is mvovo instead zuks. people say he has potentual but every game i’ve seen him in his has made too many basic mistakes. this isn’t a game you play your doubtfuls. mvovo seemed to show more class against the lions. actually i saw more potential from mvovo in that game than i did in vulindlu’s season. hopefully i am wrong and zuks proves his worth.

    Kankowski will not play much for the boks but will be in the squad all the time. depriving him of valuable game time. (squad. NOT match 22)

    Sykes will be available all the time

    Muller will be with the Sharks unless Becker is out for a long time.

    Olivier? Wynand Olivier? (he’s a bull) :wink: He will not play for the boks unless there is an injury to JdV

  • @Baldrick (Comment 78) : the problem is that the currie cup is starting and there is hardly any news coming from the sharks camp. we all saw just how weak the sharks squad is during the s14 yet there doesn’t seem to be any intention to fix this problem. we are hoping to see some good news from the sharks camp. not another good player leaving and no-one to replace.

  • we keep hearing about this great academy at the sharks, yet nothing seems to be coming out of it. and promising youngsters that are, get to sit in the stands. so we have to ask what is the academy really producing. or are parents being fleeced.

  • @Baldrick (Comment 85) : i agree. but you are always going to get rumour mongers like rob :wink: and if people want to believe the nonsense, that helps the sharks out. the bigger the smokescreen the better for the sharks. it also keeps fans interested. the gullible people will always get caught, and the rest know that the players on the field are the ones carrying the badge. personally i am liking the hernandez rumour because it shows something is happening. it is nice to see something positive after all the big losses to the team. the sharks are a big money making brand, which is amazing for a team that has such an empty trophy cabinet. let us dream. cos the sharks reality isn’t that rosie.

  • @Prof. Ice (Comment 91) : Because Rob offered to help Sharks Lover track me down, this after SL threatened to beat me up because he disagreed with me. I think he is a wannabee bulls fan with a blue datsun 120y and kudo horns (spraypainted blue) tied to the bull bars.

    Oh, and a bandage around his arm that says justice for bakkies (that’s only becauase he doesn’t have one – a bakkie that is).

  • i think a shocking s14 sharks choke, a protea choke, a below par lions tour, i think sports fans are feeling a little drained. currie cup might bring some rejuvenation back. can you believe we still have a tri nations and year end tour to go. i am sport saturated.
