Any Sharks supporter based in the Mother City can have no excuse whatsoever for missing out on a trip to Newlands this Saturday.

In addition to the small matter of the Stormers against the Highlanders (5pm kick-off), two other games will allow the opportunity to see the future of Sharks rugby take the field. The first curtain-raiser, at 13h00, sees the Baby Boks, with three junior Sharks forwards in their ranks, take on the Argentine under 20s. It’s the second appetiser, though, that will probably be elevated to main course status for Sharks fans – Sean Everitt’s exciting Sharks XV up against local boys Western Province in the Vodacom Cup.

Remember that we are offering big points incentives for people who go out and support the Sharks XV this year. Anyone who submits live score updates from the game will bag 1000 Sharksworld points, as will anyone who sends in a match report after the game. A picture of yourself with a Sharks XV player is worth 500 points, while simply getting out to support the team at the game (and providing us some prove that you were there) will nett you 250.

Come on, Sharks fans. Let’s get out to Newlands en masse this weekend and make it feel like a home game for the Sharks XV team.

  • The Boland Cavaliers surprised friend and foe on Saturday when they beat a star studded Western Province team by 37-28 (22-16) in their opening Vodacom Cup match played in Bredasdorp.
    Eugene Eloff’s team started the match in great fashion by building multiple phases, defending like demons when they had to, but more than anything else, they looked much happier than the team who didn’t win a single match in the 2009 competition.

    Province, with the likes of Willem de Waal, Frikkie Welsch and Fabian Juries in the side, never really got into the match with Boland controlling the majority of the ball.

    Boland flanker Franzel September scored two tries in the first half. And his flyhalf, Dean Grant, had an exceptional afternoon with the boot. At the break the ‘visiting home team’ led by 22-16, with Coenrad Marias scoring Province’s only try.

    Hottie Louw scored his first try in a Boland-jersey shortly after play started again. Boland mauled the visitors over their own tryline after gaining position and a line-out from a penalty.

    The former Province- and Blue Bulls lock got sent off the field shortly afterwards, but that didn’t stop Zandré Jordaan from scoring Boland’s fith try. PJ Vermeulen (centre) deserves to be mentioned in this movement.

    Though Province scored two more tries in the last quarter, it was too little too late. Boland had the upper hand in the scrums, in the rucks and mauls, and their performance was not that of a team who went through a hellish 2009 – both on and off the field.


    Boland – Tries: Franzel September (2), Dean Grant, Hottie Louw, Zandré Jordaan. Conversions: Dean Grant (3). Penalties: Grant (2).
    Vodacom WP 28 – Tries: Coenrad Marais, Yaya Hartzenberg, Bradley Fortuin. Conversions: De Waal (2). Penalties: De Waal (3).
