Expect Kanko, Murray to start

Well, there’s little to no chance that Willem Alberts will be cleared to start against the Chiefs on Saturday, of that I’m sure. Looks like 2008′s Super 14 player of the tournament, Ryan Kankowski, is going to get a chance to show exactly what he’s made of.

We understand that Adi Jacobs is set to play a role off the bench this week, so the smart money will be on Waylon Murray starting in the number 13 jersey. The flyhalf debate is still wide open and we were led to believe, earlier in the week, that Monty Dumond had the inside track. At that stage, Rory Kockott was listed as doubtful, but having recovered from a shoulder injury, the ace goal-kicker looks likely to start. Steve Meyer now seems likely operate at pivot, with Riaan Swanepoel outside him.

The back three and pack shouldn’t differ very much from what we’ve become used to seeing, although Gerhard Mostert may have done enough to warrant a starting berth in the second row. My money is on the big lock making his Sharks debut off the bench this week.

Probable Sharks lineup:

15 Stefan Terblanche, 14 Odwa Ndungane, 13 Waylon Murray, 12 Riaan Swanepoel, 11 JP Pietersen, 10 Steve Meyer, 9 Rory Kockott, 8 Ryan Kankowski, 7 Jean Deysel, 6 Jacques Botes, 5 Johann Muller, 4 Steven Sykes, 3 John Smit (capt), 2 Bismarck du Plessis, 1 Beast Mtawarira
16 Deon Carstens, 17 Jannie du Plessis, 18 Gerhard Mostert, 19 Keegan Daniel, 20 Charl McLeod, 21 Ruan Pienaar, 22 Adrian Jacobs

  • De wet barry is not at the Sharks, the last i heard he was training with the Bulls incase Francois Hougaard didn’t pass the fitness test, since Francois is back De wet must go back to captaining EP.

  • @sharks_lover (Comment 4) :

    And risk getting points docked? Maybe they know they won’t get any points against the Chiefs anyway so it won’t matter?

  • @wpw (Comment 5) : The Bulls didn`t select Barry for their squad. Can`t afford the yellow cards that comes with his coat hanger tackles . . .

    I don’t think they need him.

    If he does play it would mean Olivier plays at 13.

    As for the yellow card comment:

    I’ll raise you one JP Nel!!! :mrgreen:

  • an interesting thing about the chiefs back three depth, not only are they missing muliaina and masaga from last year’s squad for this game, but anesi is also not there having moved to the waratahs, he would probably have been involved. so of the 4 regular back three men for the chiefs last year, only sivivatu is available. GO SHARKS!!!!!!! :mrgreen:

  • mmmm Sportsbet has the Chiefs at 16 – 10.

    You guys think the Sharks will go the tactical kicking route again? We all know it`s difficult to run the ball in Durbs this time of year.

  • @robdylan (Comment 29) : @Pokkel (Comment 31) : yes ruan is being used to drive out complacency in the team. no players place is safe, any slip ups and ruan will take their place. that is why john smit begged for the captaincy, because he knows ruan has been eyeing tighthead recently. apparently johan muller is moving to ulster because in his contract it says that he will leave if anyone tries to take his spot. the du plessis aren’t too bothered, because if either is replaced by ruan, the remaining brother on the field will KKRRRRRRUUUSSSHHH ruan when he binds next to him.
