Who to support this weekend?

Well, needles to say, things didn’t quite pan out as expected for us Sharks fans last weekend. Instead of us being able to sit back and watch the impending WP-Bulls clash, relishing the thought of the loser slipping back even further into third place, we now have somewhat of a conundrum on our hands.

There is very little doubt in my mind that in the Sharks, WP and the Blue Bulls, we have the teams who will occupy positions one through three on the final log. The fourth spot will go to one of the Cheetahs (my pick), the Lions or Griquas. The Leopards could put paid to Griquas’ semiinal aspirations once and for all this weekend, which I think they will manage to do. The Lions, should they lose to an in-form Cheetahs outfit in Bloemfontein, will also have too much ground to make up.

The really intersting match will take place in Cape Town, assuming, of course, that the Sharks manage five points against a Boland team “mysteriously” packed full of WP reserves this week. Provein are in top spot right now, with 28 points. The Sharks are a point further back in second, while the Bulls are third with 25.

From a Sharks perspective, it’s very tempting to haul out the horns this weekend, knowing that a Bulls win should see us go back to the top of the log. We should end up on 32 after the weekend, with the Bulls second on 29 and Province third, perhaps still on 28 or maybe also with 29, depending on the margin of defeat. The important thing to realise, though, is that the Bulls play us next week – at Loftus. To my mind, we don’t want that game to represent a chance for the Bulls to knock us off top spot because once hey are in pole position, they won’t easily relinquish it again.

To my mind, it would suit our purposes far more if Province could beat the Bulls, thus opening up enough of a buffer to allow us to lose at Loftus, yet still end higher than the Pretoria crew. Province, in that scenario, may well finish above us, but I must say that I prefer the prospect of a potential final at Newlands than I do traveling to Pretoria. Remember that Province have a scant handful of Bok players returning, whereas both the Sharks and the Bulls should be at close to Super 14 strength by the time the seimi-finals come around.

In order to retain the Currie Cup, the Sharks are going to have to show that we can beat anyone in a knockout match, anywhere, but I would rate our chances far more if we could ensure a semi-final in Durban and a final at any venue at all other than Loftus Versveld.

So, for that reason, my choice is clear.

PROOOOOOOOOOOVVVVVVVIIIIIIIIIINNNNNNNCCCCCCCEEEEEEEE!!!!

  • It’s the same story as the Super 14 all over again arrghhhhhhh.
    We cruise, then we lose a couple key games which makes life difficult for ourselves and then we face an uphill battle to make the semi’s. Why is fate so cruel? :???:

  • I can honestly say I never quite got the hang of the “I-support-anyone-who-plays-against-the-Bulls” club. It is one thing to say i hope they lose because…blah blah, ala RobD. Good on ye, if I were a Sharks fan I might just have agreed with you.

    But just on principle “is just not cricket”. There are teams I don’t like, but I don’t wish ill on them.

    Oyster…its just a rivalry thing – dont take it personally or too seriously…and I dont wish ill on them (as in injuries etc) just that they do not win – in essence (and you will only here this from my mouth ONCE) is because they are the “main” team to beat….people tend to judge all their games against the games they play against the bulls, because they are good.. :wink:

    Also – a lot of the “vyandigheid” (sorry cannot get the word now) is because of bad experiences with fanatic bullish blue bulls supporters – unfortunately due to some crappy incidences “blue Bull spoorters” as a whole is not liked…unfair – but that is how life is – people generalise..

    And having said that – I am sure BB or other team supporters feel very similar about Sharks supporters – also because of teh minority suporter that went overboard..

    You – the damnest most decent BB supporter I have come accross! :grin:

Fear that they might have to play a semi or final at fortress Loftus. I for one really backed the BB once the Sharks where out of the Super 14. I wouldn’t go as far as buying a BB jersey.

    Unfortunately I have some really one-eyed, arrogant, pain-in-the-ass Blue supporters in my office and they really do the good guys like yourself a lot of harm

  • Sharks fans most accurate after Round 8

    2 Sep 2009
    As we all know, rugby team allegiances in South Africa are fiercely held and defended: how many Blue Bulls fans, if given the opportunity to earn a lifetime supply of beer simply by wearing a WP jersey to Loftus, would actually do it? We all know there would not be a single streeptrui in the blue mass on Saturday.

    But, is there a differential between how well the supporters of the different teams perform in SuperBru? We?ve pulled the data. This table shows the average global leaderboard score at the end of Round 8 for each group of fans. Anyone who has defaulted even once is excluded, and players must have picked in round 8 to have their scores included here.

    Pos Fans Avg score
    1 Sharks fans 30.65
    2 Griquas fans 30.15
    3 Boland Cavaliers fans 30.05
    4 Blue Bulls fans 29.91
    5 Western Province fans 29.65
    6 Platinum Leopards fans 29.09
    7 Cheetahs fans 28.88
    8 Lions fans 28.17

  • @robdylan (Comment 80) : quite likely actually. i think without boks sharks are bit better than BBs and if they really concentrate they can do it.

    not worried about Wp topping the log.
    will be different when the boks are back.
    Wonder whether Jean de Villiers is going back to them for end of CC or whether straight to wherever.

    I am more upset with sharks loosing AT HOME.

  • just to clear things up, the reason why i dont like the bulls is their supporters mainly, i have been to loftus enough times to develop an intense dislike for bulls supporters

  • and loftus was a much better place to watch rugby pre-2002, when only “the faithful” were there, now you have some drunk guys who has painted himself blue and is shouting abuse, that is not my idea of a true fan

    If they don’t want to go to “platteland”, then they should let poor old SABC televise those games…..I’m sure they will find a sponsor & plenty of advertising !! and they need the money…
