For the second week in a row, we have a top-of-the-table clash in Durban.

This week, though, the home team will be defending their number one spot against a Western Province team desperate to to underline their championship credentials by rolling one of the big guns away from home.

Will the in-form Sharks have too much for the visitors?

Or will Province’s’ much-improved pack and dangerous back three swing the match in their favour?

Kick-off, 3pm. Don’t miss it!

The Sharks: 15 Stefan Terblanche, 14 Chris Jordaan, 13 Andries Strauss, 12 Riaan Swanepoel, 11 Lwazi Mvovo, 10 Juan Hernandez, 9 Rory Kockott, 8 Keegan Daniel, 7 Jean Deysel, 6 Jacques Botes, 5 Johann Muller (captain), 4 Steven Sykes, 3 Wiehahn Herbst, 2 Skipper Badenhorst, 1 Deon Carstens/Patric Cilliers.
Replacements: 16 Craig Burden, 17 Patric Cilliers/Deon Carstens, 18 Albert van den Berg, 19 Michael Rhodes, 20 Charl McLeod, 21 Monty Dumond, 22 Waylon Murray.

Western Province: 15 Joe Pietersen, 14 Tonderai Chavhanga, 13 Juan De Jongh, 12 Morgan Newman, 11 Gio Aplon, 10 Peter Grant, 9 Dewaldt Duvenhage, 8 Luke Watson (captain), 7 Duane Vermeulen, 6 Francois Louw, 5 Anton van Zyl, 4 Chris Jack, 3 Brok Harris, 2 Tiaan Liebenberg, 1 Wicus Blaauw,
Replacements: 16 Deon Fourie, 17 JD Moller, 18 De Kock Steenkamp, 19 Pieter Louw, 20 Bolla Conradie, 21 Frikkie Welsh, 22 JJ Engelbrecht.

Referee: Jonathan Kaplan
Assistant referee: Lourens van der Merwe, Reuben Rossouw
TMO: Shaun Veldsman

    @war1 (Comment 46) :
    Really?

    Starting with Skipper, Strauss and prima-donna Kockott, I think its only the SHarks fans who are surprised that the momentum of the past few weeks has been lost.

    Didnt help that Henrnandez was awful on the night.

  • Thanks Rory…

    All momentum was lost with the momentum the forwards built up, and how well Kockett kocked it up.

    I have not seen such bad service from a 9 for a long time.

    And for the record, I rated Kockett in 2008 as our best 9.

    How the mighty fall.

  • well hopefully plum has realised he is a dimwit trusting muller as captain. what does it help the team when your captain is one getting moaned at the most by the ref. muller needs to be a lock and nothing more. give the captaincy to someone able to handle it.

  • the Magician did not have a shocker…he had a NON EXCISTANT…he’s drop did not make it up – sorry – if you pay MULTI MILLIONS for a guy…he should not have close to a game that whatever he’s nameis…

    I have just became a MONTY FAN – OFFICIALLY!

    @Morné (Comment 62) :
    I like the guy…he needs to share,,too shelfish.. (what is it with the gselfishness in this team…because the backline dont get enough ball perhaps??

    Muller dissapointed me with his discipline…Captain..?? my assg…
    Bring back Stephan!

    And Skim needs to be replaced..BRUSSOW might be a good option!

    I am more and more impressed by Swannie…what a strong player- I have the bad feeling that Murray is playing TOO save..understandab;y because of his long injury..but that helps US nothing.

    Okay..for now that is enough crit..

    Well done WP…. :???:

  • Not a great game for the Sharks, but we will be back. Just like the first game against WP they had new combination’s. Here we had new combination’s in key areas with players back from injury. Unfortunately it had to be WP again. I think the Kockott – Hernandez due will be excellent in the future just need some game time together.

    GO SHARKS :cool:
