Plum searching for a ten

John Plumtree has acknowledged that the loss of Juan Martin Hernandez for the Super 14 is a massive blow to his side’s aspirations.

The Sharks coach has confirmed that neither Ruan Pienaar nor Guy Cronjé will be fit to train for at least the next month, leaving him few options at pivot. Monty Dumond has apparently impressed the coach at training, particularly as his conditioning is top-notch. The Sharks are, however, understood to be scouring the globe for a suitable flyhalf option.

This is not as simple as it seems, however. All the good pivots are, as usual, tied up in contracts, either locally or abroad and finding someone that will offer more than Dumond may well prove prohibitively expensive – if not completely impossible. Any mercenary brought in at this late hour will presumably also need some time to acclimatise to the Sharks structures and game plan, adding further to the risk.

Dumond is understood to be a favourite of Currie Cup backline coach Grant Bashford. With the introduction of Hugh Reece-Edwards to the mix, though, it is possible that the players shares may fall once more. Bashford will play the roles of skills coach this Super 14, while Reece-Edwards, it is rumoured, is being groomed to take over as head coach for the Currie Cup.

In the same interview with Christo Buchner from Beeld, Plumtree went on to blame the Sharks’ semi-final defeat in the Currie Cup on the fact that his Bok contingent came back from the Tri-Nations campaign unfit. It’s just the latest in a string of factors Plumtree has brought up (none of which includes his own gameplan) but may well have some merit. Certainly, one wonders how a player like Ryan Kankowski could possibly have benefited from three months of carrying tackle bags when he could have been playing in the Currie Cup.

  • i suppose bringing back someone like scott spedding would not be a bad idea, isn’t reece just a backline consultant?

  • hi all… happy new year to all! okey, this thing could go one of 3 routes.

    1. We buy a gap-stopper from overseas. A has been or golddigger from a club in france or england.

    2. We could pay the BIG bucks and buy back our own in the form of Peter Grant from the Stormers. (they already have De waal, the aussie and a few others).

    3. Or we could invest and buy a youngster with a big future in front of him in Francois Brummer. With regular gametime in the big leagues he could shine! Bulls already have Potgieter and Steyn!

    The LAST thing we must do is buy Derick Hougaard!! and i`m sure if, for the right amount, he would want to come back…

    @VanWilder (Comment 35) : 1 – but who?
    2 – might work, but is he really that good? I’m in two minds
    3 – what’s wrong with Pat Lambie, if we’re going to go that route?

  • @robdylan (Comment 37) : at my 1st category Derick Hougaard… its really not that far fetched. He made his money over there, why not come back and try for a springbok jersey and a world cup?? but i really dont hope so!

    2- i`m with you there… is 27 or 28 hey? only got 2 years of SA rugby here before going overseas to retire…

    3- lambie a fly?? didnt know that!! i really like him, better than brummer, but i think brummers got more XP at the moment…

    Firstly, the Aussie was on a short term contract and has returned to the Brumbies.

    Secondly, Peter Grant is NOT for sale.

    And lastly, Derrick Hougaard is contracted to Sarries at the moment!!!

    Next?? :twisted:

  • I might be missing something here altogether…but why not stick with Monty. Everytime he played last season he was pretty impressive and his game was always level. None of this hot or not stuff. And like they said his conditioning is good. I vote to give him a change…my other vote would be to get Butch back, but I’m not sure if his knee has mended yet and how fit he’ll be.

    Just my 5 cents :smile:

  • @robdylan (Comment 55) : That’s true, but look at the Aussies, tey’re constantly introducing 18,19 and 20 year old boys to senior rugby, with huge success, but the difference is that they do it the right way. They make sure the player is mentally mature, at a younger age. They’re gonna do very good in 2011 wc, as well as 2015, because of that. The result is that you get a 21 year old player, with lots of experience.

  • @robdylan (Comment 57) : The best thing to do would be to play Monty at 10, and maybe introduce Lambie in the last 10 mins, if the Sharks are in front, and systematically give him more gametime. By not putting too much pressure on him right away, he might find it easier to adapt. The Cronje no9 didn’t do too badly when he got his chance. But it might differ from player to player.

  • @boepie (Comment 65) : agree. i will never forget how the selectors messed up gaffie du toit`s career. played really well for the griquas, gave him his first springbok start, messed it up big time and was never the same player since. i really do believe, even if we let him start from game one, he still will end up a great player, but would rather like to see him get in to the system gradually.

    @wpw (Comment 66) : my opnion, i would not play him at centre. and anyone who`s seen him play can tell that he`s got so much time on the ball, if you compare him to JL Potgieter, JL looks like his rushing everything, his passes and kick. But Lambie on the other hand looks really calm with ball in hand. he makes it look easy.

  • @VanWilder (Comment 70) : It was more a case of Gaffie being publicly humiliated for the Boks failures by Mallett than being stuffed around as a player.

    That was reprehensible and the Teichmann-Skinstad RWC 1999 mess brought Mallet down in many’s estimation.

  • On a serious note.

    This is where the NZ draft system would come in handy.

    How many halves do the Stormers have? Pietersen, De Waal, Grant any others? At least one of those will get minimal if any game time. Why not draft one to the Sharks?

    I know that he had done it all at age group cricket but never saw him play. Weirdly when I first saw him play rugby it just struck me that he would be one of those players that would be great to watch batting.

    Must have something to do with an ancient army of beautiful woman commandeered by someone called Delores or have something to do with winding back time – I suspect the latter – if so, I agree, ad infinitum

  • Guys & Plum, let sanity please prevail and stick to what we’ve got. And keep the long term solutions in mind! We (Sharks) have to start showing some sense in keeping and giving our flyhalf prospects/talents/incumbents the necessary backing/opportunities/game time. We do not need to go abroad to “buy” a flyhalf or to lure anybody with heaps of cash. Nobody wants to hear this but if the Sharks struggle this S14, but bleed youngsters for the future I am for it. Yes, by all means buy players where you are really thin. But look what predicament we have now. When all those flyhalves left the tank, everybody wished them well. Now there are suggestions that we should buy them back. See the irony? Thats the point I am trying to make. I can feel the stones being pelted onto me already :-)

  • @JustPlainSHARK (Comment 111) : JPS, the thing that I’m worried about is that Plum is now fighting for survival, rather than any thoughts about long-term planning. I reckon the oke just wants to get through the Super 14 without getting fire, because that would jeopardise his chances of coaching the Hurricanes next year, which is what he really wants.
