Get out and support the Sharks XV

We at Sharksworld are 100% behind any team that plays in KZN colours and the Sharks XV is no exception. We have a hugely talented bunch of guys doing us proud in the Vodacom Cup and we’ve decided to really up the stakes when it comes to getting the supporters out in force.

Now since we launched the Sharksworld Points system a few weeks ago, many of you have been clamouring for new ways to boost your points total. We’ve decided to offer BIG points rewards for getting out there and supporting the Sharks XV during the 2010 Vodacom Cup campaign. They’ll be playing games at a number of venues around the country, so there should be ample opportunity for everybody (who is SA based!) to get out and see them somewhere along the line.

We’ll be awarding points as follows:
- Attend a Sharks XV Vodacom Cup game and provide us live score updates (via your cell phone, or whatever) and well give you 1000 points. You’ll need to submit a minimum of 5 updates during the game to qualify (the Sharks XV are going to score LOTS of tries, so you might battle to keep up!)
- Attend a Sharks XV Vodacom Cup game (or watch it on TV, if it’s on) and provide us with a usable match report and you’ll get 1000 points (this is in addition to the 100 you’ll get for posting an article)
- Send us a photo of yourself posing with a Sharks XV player and we’ll give you 500 points. If you’d like some help in finding out where the players are going to be after the game, certain administrators of the site might be able to help out with a hint or two :) Also, if you happen to see the guys at your local shopping centre, stop them, ask for a snap and let them know that Sharksworld is right behind them. That will count for points as well.
- If you can provide us some other irrefutable proof of attendance of a Sharks XV Vodacom Cup game, that’s worth 250 points. So a picture of yourself at the game, or a scan of a ticket, or something like that, will count.

Just in case you’re wondering where this is all leading, apart from the cure star icons and associated status here on the site, we’ll also be launching a range of Sharksworld merchandise later in the year. Gaining ranks on the site will entitle you to some free stuff, so start racking up those points and you will be rewarded in due course. Don’t ever let it be said that we don’t value your contributions here!

Let’s all get out and support Sean Everitt and the Sharks XV, starting this Friday at ABSA Stadium, against Border. Kick off is at 18h00 and the Sharks XV should really kick some butt.

White and black – nothing else matters!

  • @lovebubble (Comment 4) : of course! No restrictions here, even if you would be at the game anyway to support your family member.

    It’s not really a competition as such. Just a way to encourage people to get out and support

  • Ah to live in Durban would be so nice – that way I could attend every game, but unfortunately the South Coast is a bit of a problem. Not to worry though, Sharksworld keeps me informed of everything so thanks guys – you are the best :!: :!: :!:

  • @Charmaine (Comment 16) : his name is Mark Richards and he’s one of the blonde Michaelhouse lads.

    In fact, there’s a scary number of Michaelhouse boys in the Sharks XV team this year.

    A very good player, nice freel for the game and very quick. When the talk goes to our wings lack of pace its him I think about as the next step up. Still very young and could do with some bulk.

  • @Salmonoid (Comment 25) : well, he’s roughly the same size as the Cronje brothers, so I guess there’ll always be that bit of doubt when it comes to lining him up against the 100kg islanders… but yeah, lovely player. I’m sure lovebubble will confirm it :)

  • Yip- i do think he has talent but he is a little on the small side, but his heart is big and hopefully that can get him through eventually… who knows. He played scrumhalf until he went to Michaelhouse and then played B’s as Ross was just too good for him. Played 1st team in grade 11 (fullback) and was moved to wing in matric and played with lambie and the Cronje boys.They had a fantastic team in 2007 and its great to see that so many of these Michaelhouse chaps are still playing rugby.

  • @dawnwallenkamp (Comment 46) : shark tank, yup. Kick-off is at 18h00 and entrance is free.

    So, head out there, get a few snaps with the players (let’s say 5 player – that’s 2500 points) and then write us a match report (1000 points) and not bad for an evening’s work.

    I’m sure if you meet up with lovebubble, she’ll introduce you to Mark Richards
