Blame the forwards, not the flyhalf!

The Sharks lost against Province on Saturday because we got certain selections wrong up front – but more so because the guys that were picked didn’t front up to the massive physical challenge that the WP pack mounted. Trying to blame rookie flyhalf Guy Cronjé is frankly nonsensical and smacks of the politics of desperation.

I don’t think anyone anticipated how much of an impact Chris Jack and Anton van Zyl would have in the Province engine room. To say that they were utterly superb on the day and under the conditions would be a gross understatement. The underrated Province loose forwards also played out of their skins and the Sharks pack, as a whole, simply weren’t in it. This, mind you, is a unit containing a pair of Bok props and a pair of locks who only last week were in the Springbok 22. To say that the Sharks pack should have performed better is again stating the obvious.

Once again, the Botes-Daniel combination was shown up in a tight game and in hindsight, perhaps Skipper Badenhorst should have started in a game that was going to be more about grunt than it was about pace and finesse. Steven Sykes worked hard while Deysel erred on the side of trying to be a one-man show. The rest of the pack was anonymous and Jannie du Plessis, in particular, needs the riot act read in no uncertain terms. Is he incapable of putting in a decent performance without his little brother there to hold his hand?

Joe Muller too seems to have lost his mojo in a big way. Perhaps he needs some rest after a number of seasons without a break. Well, he got the break on Saturday, in more ways than one and we’ll struggle to replace him. That said, I hope he comes back full of his old fire and reignites a pack that is currently playing on reputation alone.

Let’s get back to poor bloody Guy Cronjé though. Did anyone actually see him touch the ball in the first half? If you’re going to develop the player, then pick him and let him run the game the way he’s supposed to, for goodness sake! Don’t keep shuffling him around the backline to wherever you feel he’ll do the least damage while letting Oom Stefan and Riaan Swanepoel take turns at pretending to be the flyhalf. I understand Plum then went on afterwards about he was only picked because there was nobody else, which is quite different to what he was saying before the game.

Developing a flyhalf is a process and the first step is empowering the player and giving him continuity in the position. Let Cronjé settle and don’t shield him from the realities of the game he’s decided to play for a living. After five matches, we’ll know whether he has what it takes or not.

Then again, as we saw last weekend in Joburg, even hte great Morné Steyn looks pretty ordinary behind a pack that’s getting whipped. Sort the forwards, Sharks. You can’t play 10-man rugby without a pack.

  • Even more indicative when one considers how a very young Steyn (who just broke onto the scene) was allowed (being played there and entrusted in the position) ripped WP apart a couple of years back in pouring rain in Durbs…

  • @Morné (Comment 1) : exactly… I posted that exact message on Cronje’s facebook wall last week.

    Look, the kid doesn’t have a huge boot like Steyn does and Willem de Waal is a great exponent of wet weather rugby… one feels, though, that the Sharks kind of threw in the towel before the game even started, though.

    I thought they were one-trick ponies to be honest.

    They came with seemingly no plan. Perhaps this is showing Plum to be a one trick pony too?

    Dunno.

    WP you could see had a definite plan however, they knew what they wanted to do.

    I remember Plum and the Sharks saying after the S14 game earlier this year that he just told his team to hang on because he knew the Stormers will tire out and basically hand them the game.

    I thought this statement a bit stupid at the time, tha basically means you are not doing anything on your own to win the game and as it happened, some injuries (JDV) conspired and they got the result then.

    They seemed to ‘wait’ on Saturday again and not really try anything to put WP under any pressure.

  • @Morné (Comment 3) : I agree with you… afraid Plum is not filling me with huge amounts of confidence right now.

    I don’t think he understands anything about coaching attack… thus, he doesn’t bother. It’s not that the Sharks don’t want to play attacking rugby. It’s that they don’t know how to!

  • @robdylan (Comment 4) : I agree…there just doesn’t seem to be any plan…at all and it’s been like that for a while now.

    We can do with the experience of a guy like Hernandez…this is not blaming Guy…it’s just the reality. If the team doesn’t have confidence and keep trying to protect Cronje he will never learn.

    im sure it would be better if the rest of the forward actualy tried to support him,that turn over that they scored from, was because there were 3 wp players and no sharks!

    I’m with you here Ice.

    The Sharks know how to play attacking rugby – the coach doesn’t have the confidence to let them play though… He didn’t have it in the Super 14 and I don’t think he’ll start now with 10plus players out…

  • @robdylan (Comment 4) :
    So then Jon Smit probably coached the Sharks for their S14 game against the Bulls earlier this year.

    My view, forget this game, the weather was plane and simple crap. Up until Daniel got binned (dose anyone know what for?) the Sharks were hanging in there and those 10 points they scored in that period was just too much to come back from. Write this game off as a bad loss but dont get in a frenzy about it,if they dish up the same in dry conditions then start worrying.

    Did anyone see the u21 game, Sharkies went down 14-0 in the same conditions. The result in no way shows the complete dominance the Sharks had over the young Province team but again they just could not breach the defences in miserable conditions.

    “The process of signing Hernandez is ongoing. There are certain processes in place to secure his signature and hopefully we’ll move forward with that in the next few days. “

  • I must admit i was surprised by the make up of your backline, the Tjorks seriously look to be lacking depth….Where is Waylon, has Brad head back to the UK? Losing Pienaar and Steyn and JP is a pretty big blow to your resources….

    I do look forward to seeing Vundu fellow in dry condtions – looks like he has potential.

  • @willa (Comment 8) : Agreed with you! Rob did you see on Saturday my point about Bismarck? 1. We saw what happened to the SBs when Bismarck was not in the front row, same props, same locks (okai Muller behind John) and same loosies they were going backwards until Bissie came on! Same as Saturday, when Skipper came on. If Scrumming is part of a hookers job, then , Craig is just not a hooker I am sorry!
    2. The only guy in the Sharks that was effecting any turnover ball at all was Deysel, and was hardly ever supported, Bismarck makes as many steals as any loosie.
    3. Jannie cannot prop if he does not have little brother there holding him up :roll:

  • All and all a terrible performance by the forwards( whom I thought should dominate) and coupled with an inexperienced backline with no gameplan….we were lucky to get the 15 points. :roll:

    Rory had a shocker IMO ( thank goodness he can kick ) how many penalties did he concede?? and I’m not even talking about the charge down. It’s time for Rory to start playing like one of the senior players that he is.

    And what happened to Botes lately? He is not at all the player that I used to admire.

    I wonder when the last time was that AvdB played 80 min of rugby

  • @robdylan (Comment 23) : Exactly! I prefer Jacques personally he is more industrious and doesn’t get yellow carded as often if ever! But yep if he is the Captain then I guess we will need him on, and who would be the other Loosie? Downey only came in when the Sharks had already thrown in the towl couldn’t see much! and at lock? Surely not geriatric Albert! if that is our option then lets rather call Johan back out of retirement :evil:

    If they are going to play Cronje then treat him like you would any other flyhalf.

  • Spot on Rob. geez to expect him to step up successfull in that wet is a bit unfair. The bit pill he recieved he did not cock up and Cocky sure did not gave him enough to dominate. If you compare Duvenhage (some of his passes end up with our 13).

    I suppose 10-man rugby is a step-up from 9 -man rugby.

    But my answer is NO.
    To steal from PdV…that would be like demolishing the whole house to make one room bigger…instead of bringing down a wall or two…

    Kockott was not like this in the beginning – I still believe he is being coached this way. So my solution…un-coach this silly behaviour…

    Exactly, many regard him as the greatest and he still got protection. Yes things were different then but he always had a scrummie that could pass the ball miles and a dominant pack – not conditions that young Cronje had on Saturday.

  • @Salmonoid (Comment 61) : Sammy, that particular comment rankled with me as well.

    For two reasons… 1 being that he spent all of last week mouthing off in the press about how great Cronje was… and then afterwards he says “I only picked him cos there was nobody else”. That’s a bit of a Mallet thing to do. BUT – we need to remember that saying “I picked him because there was nobody else” only appeared in the Voldy article. I’m not sure Plum actually used those exact words in the presser.

    As for reason 2, well, yes… Len was another option.

  • The ref was simply awful on saturday, and unfortunately johan Muller didn’t manage to pull the guys together. Lots of inexperience in our team, and no synergy….but have faith. Our boys will come back.

    Its a bit tuff comparing anyone to Frans Steyn – he is such a huge talent that comes along once in a lifetime….

  • Ok…

    1.Cheetahs and Griquas…
    Something wrong with the Cheetahs or something right with the Griquas…or a bit of both?

    2.Based on the evidence from the 1st round of matches – does anyone else (besides Klemps) think that the Bulls are the team to beat?

    Do you have sensor that notifies you when someone makes a comment about you? :lol:

    But seriously – this is your chance to back up the statement you made earlier.
