Ouens, vat Bloubulafrigter ou Fred Lurreke have name a unchange squat for ve game wiff ve blerrie haie by Lostuf on Saterday. Ve 22 what are not good enough to beat WP are going to trys to beat ve Sharks wiff ve same spellpatron and see if it are have different results vis time.

It are noteworthy vat Lurreke have pick anudder prop at reserve scrumhalf – it are a tactic vat ou Pietie “the snor” Devilliers are using at national level and ou Fransie are lank keen to show vat he are up to date wiff ve latest techniques and strategies. Dean Greyling are call “MacGuyver” by his spanmates so it are hopeful vat he will find a way to blow up ve Sharks defence!

Ou Derick Hougaard are once again being played out of position there by wing. It are a shame to mors one of ve greatest flyhalves of the modern era like vat.

It are hopeful vat the Bulle are goings to find ve skrums a bit easier going vis week, as ve Haie cannot currently boast a fastheadprop of ve pedigree and calibre of Brok Harris.

Vodacom Blue Bulls: 15 Zane Kirchner; 14 Gerhard van den Heever, 13 Jaco Pretorius, 12 Stefan Watermeyer, 11 Francois Hougaard; 10 Burton Francis, 9 Heini Adams; 8 Dewald Potgieter, 7 Pedrie Wannenburg, 6 Deon Stegmann, 5 Wilhelm Steenkamp, 4 Flip van der Merwe, 3 Werner Kruger, 2 Derick Kuün (captain), 1 Jaco Engels.

    Tough call to make between these two losers! :twisted:

  • Cape Town – Winston, a homing pigeon, has made history by beating a Telkom ADSL line in delivering 4GB of data from Howick to Hillcrest, outside Durban in just 2 hours 6 minutes and 57 seconds, whereas the ADSL download was “still just under four percent complete” at 11:45.

    Better prepare yourself for the moment of the very last, and no doubt lasting image you will see of Luke Watson…

    The one where he lifts the Currie Cup…

  • @robdylan (Comment 8) :

    But I will say this.

    The perceived gap that the Sharks and Bulls supporters think exists between them and the rest (WP in this case) is not as massive as they think.

    The Super 14 results this year proves this.

    No doubt there is one, but it is busy closing.

  • @Morné (Comment 10) : of course there is a gap, remove 11 first choice players from your team and you naturally have a gap.

    But WP are going to find themselves on the receiving end of depth issues when only Schalk comes back and they lose Jack and JDV before long.

    Strange…

    Last year when WP lost 14 players to injury and Bok call ups it was pathetic excuses… :twisted:

    Important thing to note here.

    Wins have been scored, points are on the board – and as finals have proven (as you Sharkies should know), anything can happen in a play-off.

    I prefer going into a play-off as an underdog…

  • Just for interest sakes, we may have not lost too many Boks, but we certainly have quite a few newer faces this year and have lost a couple first string players, here’s a quick list:
    Bekker
    Bobo
    Brits
    Burger
    Jean De Villiers
    Des Fountain
    De Waal
    Fondse (I think he’s played 2 games this season)
    Koster
    Mujati
    Naqelevuki
    AJ Venter

    Montgomery (debatable – won’t count him in)

    That’s 11 players we’re doing ok without.

    Hell thats rich coming from a Province supporter. I was at Newlands for the first game this year and Watson was booed relentlessly by you lot, so in fact if he did manage to lift the cup then he will be sticking it to the Bulls and the Newlands faithful equally.

    Yep there was plenty, not as bad as Loftus but considering it was his home crowd it was enough to be embarrasing. It was probably on par with what Sharks and Bulls kickers are subjected to at Newlands, which is pretty hectic.

You only get back Scalla which in the current set up is not such great thing-cos you loose either Puke Vermulen or most likely your current boy wonder one more loss and they might not even make the semis Sorry to burst your bubble

    The Sharks have 11 boks out with Cilliers possibly out and Herbst definitely out. Kockott has been injured and Hernandez has only just got back to fitness.

    And we’re top of the log. Last year Province were where with a similar loss of depth?

    Um, bottom of the long drop would be my guess.

    Dude, we don’t need to fear anyone. I think we might just surprise a few teams with or without their Boks.

    One has to remember most of the Boks have been playing non stop rugby since the beginning of this year.

    We do stand a chance of making the final and we might even go all the way. Nothing wrong with being optimistic.

    As long as we don’t become arrogant like most Sharks supporters on this site.

    Just to clear this matter up, though… everyone is saying we only need one point this weekend to claim the trophy. That is not the case. We either need two points, or we need to get 1 point while ensuring New Zealand do not get a bonus point.

  • In 2006 & 2007 we lost without a bonus point. Although 2007 was our ‘b’ side. But in neither match did NZ score four tries.

    If we have to los to win – chances are it will be via getting a bonus point and denying the All Blacks

  • Not sure if it was mentioned anywhere but Morne Steyn broke yet another record on Saturday. He became the quickest Springbok player to reach 100 test points, in his eighth test match.

    Considering two or so of his eight test were off the bench, well done young man. :cool:

  • @quota (Comment 106) : I remember that game :lol: and Just for the record I always used to support the Valke when they were in the Main CC (sorry this Sharkie gets confused with the 1st division and premier :oops: ), except of course if they were playing against the Sharks! Always support one of the minnows in the comp it makes the comp more exciting when they cause an upset. Again as long as its not against the Sharks.
    Let me make a suggestion support the Sharks we are not AS bad as the bulls, and we have Charl McLeod in the team, he was a Valke player shout for him ;)

  • Cilliers Fit to PlayThursday, September 10, 2009 – 12:02

    Patric Cilliers has been included in The Sharks side to take on the Blue Bulls for Saturday’s second round Absa Currie Cup match in a team that shows just one change from last week’s starting lineup.

    Sharks Coach John Plumtree has confirmed the good news that Pat Cilliers has come through a final fitness test on the right side of the knee injury he sustained against Boland last week, naming the tighthead prop in the starting lineup.

    The only change sees outside centre Andries Strauss back in the side for Waylon Murray who reverts to the bench. There are two changes amongst the replacements with Under 21 tighthead Julian Redelinghuys looking set to make his senior debut, taking the place of Melusi Mthethwa who was named last week. The final change sees scrumhalf Rory Kockott come in for Ross Cronje.

    The Pretoria side present a testing challenge this Saturday at Loftus Versveld and both teams are well aware of the need to come away from the clash with as many points as possible. The Sharks won the first round match at The Absa Stadium Durban and will look to make it two from two in the Absa Currie Cup as they seek to remain in a strong log position ahead of the return of their Springboks as well as a tough home clash against Free State next week.

    Blue Bulls Coach Frans Ludeke has retained the same starting line-up for this week from the team that lost 25-19 to Western Province last week in the hope that momentum and continuity will arrest the slide that has seen them lose two matches in a row with the danger that a third successive loss could place their semifinal hopes in jeopardy.
