Currie Cup ’09: Lions (19) v Sharks (30) F/T


Written by Rob Otto (robdylan)

Tagged with : ,

It’s the last away game of the round for the Sharks and they’ll be looking to consolidate second spot on the log with a good victory in Johannesburg.

The Lions have been bolstered by the return of some first-choice players and will need to step up several gears after their uninspiring and scrappy win against Boland last week. In Herkie Kruger, Dusty Noble and Henno Mentz, they have a trio of backline players who will know what to expect from the Sharks, having played for them in the past.

The visitors have been strengthened by the addition of Odwa Ndungane and Deon Carstens to the run-on fifteen, while another Bok, Jannie du Plessis, is on the bench. They have lost start import Juan Hernandez, however and much will rest on Monty Dumond’s play in the flyhalf jersey.

Will the Lions defeat the Sharks, as they have on every occasion bar one that these two teams have played in Johannesburg (in the Currie Cup), since 1996?

Or will the champions extend their unbeaten run to five games and set up a dream top-of-the-table clash against Griquas in Durban next week?

Kick-off is at 17h05 SA Time

Golden Lions: 15 Earl Rose, 14 Dusty Noble, 13 Alwyn Hollenbach, 12 Doppies la Grange, 11 Henno Mentz, 10 Herkie Kruger, 9 Jano Vermaak, 8 Willem Alberts, 7 Franco van der Merwe, 6 Cobus Grobbelaar (captain), 5 Willem Stoltz, 4 Nico Luus, 3 Gert Muller, 2 Hans van Dyk, 1 JC Janse van Rensburg.
Replacements: 16 Derek Harwood, 17 Kevin Buys, 18 Wouter Moore, 19 Todd Clever, 20 Derek Minnie, 21 Pieter Engelbrecht, 22 Ruan Boshoff.

  • TRY KANKOW!!!!

    THIS is Sharks rugby! All the way from our own half and it goes through a couple phases with lots of interplay between forwards and backs. There was a nice hand off by Mountain Man to Odd One and the Kanko scythed through the last 12 metres. Monty converts.

    0-10

  • Another promising breakout this time from Burden who gives the Lions backs a run for their money. Kanko gets a bit overkeen with a pass behind Odd One going into touch.

  • Final score 19-30. 4 points… perhaps we should have had five? Then again, we had so little possession, this was a good result.

    Fantastic defensive effort but the fact we were starved of ball and position is a bit worrying.

  • SHARKS!!!

    Anyone else notice how having Mcleod at 9 meant that a significant proportion of the little ball we had got beyond the scrumhalf?

    Lots of big games, but was disappointed with Strauss’ showing at 12 once Swannie left – he didnt allow the ball to go wide much.

  • @robdylan (Comment 123) :
    And Rob, sorry to say it, but I find Carstens’ penchant for ball-hogging annoying: give the backs and strik-runners the ball and stick to the dirty work.

    Kanko did incredibly well for Burden’s try considering that Carsten’s holding onto the ball did not draw a player, but just slowed things down.

    Still, some sublime handling overall.

  • that’s the problem with man of the match. Every ‘agency’ can pick their own one. Hoff was the SuperSport man of the match, which is the closest thing to an official one there is. Not sure what Hollenbach did to deserve anything, though

    Were asking ourselved what game were they watching

    and yes 22000 is not bad for a lions match as they struggle to get 10000

  • @war1 (Comment 141) : they are always overtly pro-lions. may be necessary with so many balck & whites in the crowd.

    but there was a bit of bad planning as well – they started playing interview with a cheerleader when sharks where running onto the field and people started cheering them.
