Rory and Guy to miss Bullrun?

Well, it never rains without pouring, to paraphrase an old saying. Don’t be surprised to see John Plumtree enquiring at his local arc dealership as his already meagre backline resources look set to be thinned even further.

As satisfying as the win against Boland was, it has not come without its own hefty price tag, as both starting halfbacks, Rory Kockott and Guy Cronjé, have been cited and face the possibility of missing the upcoming game against the Bulls through suspension. We all saw Cronjé yellow carded for a supposed “tip tackle”, whatever the hell that is. I thought it was frankly ludicrous that the player received anything more serious than a penalty for a completely innocuous hit, but this is the IRB we’re talking about and they reckon that throwing their weight around amounts to about the same thing as flexing their muscles.

Kockott, never one to resist a cheap shot when it’s on offer, has been cited for striking a player. I guess it’s a case of “when will he ever learn” and perhaps it’s time for Plumtree to investigate bringing Charl McLeod into the starting line up on a more regular basis while allowing the petulant Kockott a little time off to decide whether he’d rather be a rugby player or a boxer.

So, assuming both are found guilty and suspended, which, let’s be honest, they will be, we’re once again looking very inexperienced among the backs, just at a time when the existing combination was starting to gel. Plum mentioned in a media report that his plan was to play Juan Martin Hern´ndez at centre this week, assuming he arrives, which would have made good sense and allowed Cronjé a little more time to settle at flyhalf, with experienced players on either side. Assuming no Cronjé, though, it looks like El Mago will go straight in at flyhalf – that’s of course barring any further delays to his work permit. He is expected in Durban today.

I would imagine that McLeod would be a pretty obvious direct replacement for Kockott and, with Ross Cronjé on standby, scrumhalf is the one area where we can, at least, afford to lose a player. Let’s hope that the Argie does indeed arrive and bring his kicking boots with him, though, or else we may have no option but to start with Ross at scrumhalf and let him take the kicks. We’re then down to the prospect of Monty Dumond at flyhalf, which would frankly be suicide against the Bulls.

Waylon Murray should also hopefully be fit to take his place on the bench this week.

Brace yourselves, Sharks fans, it’s going to be a nail-biting week down in Durban.

  • Cronjé’s yellow was an absolute joke. Nothing wrong with what he did imo.

    As far as Rory’s concerned I suppose he’s a bit unlucky. But then again you can’t use your elbow to ‘hand-off’ another player.

  • Im sure the player who got tipped is even against the ruling,how blind must it be for a lock to get tipped by a midget flyhalf.

  • @provincejoulekkading (Comment 5) : anyway, Hlungwane shouldn’t have been on the field to get tipped in the first place, since he flattened Guy with a high swinging arm tackle just a few minutes beforehand. Poor kid probably wouldn’t be able to play this week anyway – he was so clearly concussed by the end of the game anyway.

  • @robdylan (Comment 4) :
    I was racking my brain to remember Kockots punch and then remembered his forarm handoff, for which he was penalised, so I presume that is what they are citing him for and that would be harsh.

  • @willa (Comment 8) : he really had a superb game. if Plum decided to keep him at flyhalf for the campaign, with Mago at 12 and Swannie at 13, I would have no problem whatsoever.

    Guy got a yellow so that equates to 5 weeks?

  • Kockott – A talented player and he does not have to resort to dirty playing. Alas, perhaps small-man-syndrome comes into play in his case? He is a loose canon which is gonna cost the sharks plenty of games.

    Shit, but Michaelhouse is really producing the talent right now, although this year’s Craven Week seems to have its fair share of Glenwood boys.

  • @robdylan (comment 31) : Don’t expect many more for a few years. The last two to three years we have had some real talent, but the other years coming up are not too great. Only one guy 1 rate Dumisani Mabena. A zim boy, very good runner.Maybe see him in next years craven week. Glenwwod really have some beef, but i have a hunch that they r currently doin some serious recruiting. Shit, hope Kockett doesn’t get suspended.

  • Last week someone wanted to know whether it was trus that Gerhard Harding had a glass eye. Seems he did in fact -confirmed by Bros in Friday nights commentary when he recalled how, after a night game in which the floodlights went out one after the other, Hatding commented to Ian Mac that he thought he was losing the sight in his good eye too.
