Goode likely to stick around

We’re awaiting confirmation from the Sharks that Andy Goode has been granted a work permit and will indeed be available for the remainder of the Super 14.

While the English pivot has delivered a mixed bag of performance on tour, from a continuity perspective, it’s probably not a terrible thing if he does stick around. I’ve seen the way Plum operates and if there’s one thing for sure, it’s that Ruan Pienaar will find himself forced back into the number 10 jersey should Goode leave, undoing all the progress that has been made over the past few weeks.

The sensible thing to do, if it were up to me, would be to let Monty Dumond play flyhalf for the remainder of the Super 14, while allowing Pat Lambie to become accustomed to the position later in the game. Having Goode around is a reasonable next-best option, although I’m still really unsure as to who is being groomed to take over the vital number 10 jersey for the Currie Cup and beyond.

We’ll update you as soon as we have official word, but expect Andy Goode to start at flyhalf against the Reds this weekend.

  • Good afternoon to you all. I tend to think this is a good thing, goode hasn’t exactly set the world alight but I’ve seen a lot worse in a sharks jersey. He is a pretty good foil for pienaar and I’m liking pienaar moving to 10 with about a half hour to go.

  • I suppose Goode provides a bit of continuity but he wouldn’t be my first choice. I know Lambie last played 10 at U15 but he is young enough to still develop in another position. I said this before….I think Lambie should stand at 10 on occasion just to confuse the opposition and later on maybe play 20 minutes in a game there…it’s no goode spending much more time or money on Goode I think. Otherwise give the rest of the S14 to Monty and see how he develops.

  • Rob, Read this earlier today. Not over excited, but one thing it does bring is consistency, which is what the team needs. So actually hoping now that permit comes through. Also don’t think we should be pushing Lambie too quick to FH. Let him settle first at FB. If Lambie is going to play FH for the Sharks let him get time there in the CC.

    Asked Sharky this earlier somewhere else, think he never saw it. Have you heard of Justin Botha? He is a FH. A young player we bought from the Lions? Some blogger on another site told me he is a superb talent. Only he got knocked down by a car and hurt the knees. So not sure if he has recovered or not.

  • Goode staying around IS a good thing. He is the best option available at the moment if we keep Ruan at 9 which is a must IMO.

    It would have have been better if we had Morne Steyn at 10 :grin:

    It would have been best if we had Butch at 10. :grin: :grin:

  • @Megatron (Comment 28) : pls sustantiate that statement… Are you making the assumption that lambie can’t tackle,simply due to his lack of experience? If u know anything about him you’ll know that he is brilliant under the high ball and his tackling is not far off!

  • @Pokkel (Comment 21) :

    I don’t think the S14 is a place to develop a flyhalf, let him play VC or CC at 10 and see how he goes.

    For now stay with the flyhalf who has helped us to our 1st 2 victories of the season and let’s not stuff around with a team that is busy winning.

    Lambie is fearless under the high ball and yes, his tackling is not far off. His kick and chase is very good too. Just pure class is Lambie. Now hoping to see this other younster Justin Botha get over his injury and start to play. Was told he is a brilliant talent.

    All we have to do is report a housebreaking somewhere near the Reds’ Hotel and Cooper will be on his way home, then we can play John Smit at 10 and still win.

    How do you trust lambie @ pivot but doubt monty dumond [on what factual basis, u15 rugby?] who played there quite well with charl mcleod in the currie cup until the boks came back & fcuked it up?

    You must be new, ;-) Megatron doesn’t comment to debate, he comments to draw others into replying to his comments. ;-)

    Why just the other day he said “There are plenty of south african professional rugby players that can play flyhalf for the sharks” and that Andy Goode shouldn’t be allowed to play.

    When asked who these flyhalves were that weren’t commited elsewhere he suddenly had a broken keyboard or something coz I have still not seen a reply. :oops:

    So now am pleased to hear you have heard of him too and that he is a superb talent. Think he said he played for SA Schools and was a star player there.

    So everyone, look out for Justin Botha at FH for the future.

How many VC and CC players make it to the S14 the next year….just about none it’s usually the same okes that played S14 the previous year…..If your assumpsion makes sense then Lambie shouldn’t have played fullback for the Sharks before a season on CC. He has showed that he has the mentality and BMT to play at this level so why not have a go. Look at the Reds with their younsters coming through. If they good enough chuck them in the deep end I say.

    Never heard of him until someone I speak to on another site told me about him. This bloke lives next door to family. Sharky knows about this kid too. Seems in the same bracket as Lambie. Very talented. Will ask Sharky to get more info on him. All I know is he was a star player in the SA Schools team.

    The Lions did offer him a contract at the age of 16 but his father told them to come back when he was 18. Then it seems they never did. Mac saw him at craven week in Justins Matric year and signed him then for the Sharks.

    The accident happened last year when a woman jumped a red traffic light and knocked him down. So hoping by now he is getting over that injury.

    Seems we could have another great player coming through. Not sure of his age, probably around 19 years old.

    I am not a fan of the short-term import – seldom does any goode.

    Invest in someone likely to play for you for a couple of years instead.

    I reckon Rocket could play 10. He would never pass the ball probably, but he does have all the skills.

  • @Megatron (Comment 117) : JPP’s try didn’t come from defense, it came from a kick-off. We received the ball and got it out of the maul to the blind side quickly. I get what you’re saying about the counter-attack thing, but this one didn’t come from pressure created by the Sharks…the gap was simply there and Stefan spotted it.

  • @Letgo (Comment 124) : And for a change we had support runners in the right positions, who then made the right decisions by not passing the ball to someone’s feet, kicking it away or holding onto it and getting tackled.

    Our lack of skills in the passing and distribution department has caused us more than one loss this year. Besides all the other obvious basics, those are the things we’ll have to do well come Saturday against the Reds.

    We have to remember that, even when the Reds were Australasia’s worst side, they found ways to beat us or we found ways to lose against them (whichever one prefers) but this time it will be another story.

  • @rhineshark (Comment 125) : You’re right, our passing has been horrible. We haven’t been running with the ball enough, but when opportunities were there we just threw the ball away.

    That’s the one thing I like about Goode. He’s not extravagant, or has any special skills what so ever, but he does his job in the passing department. The ball goes to him and the guy next to him gets a nice ball on the front foot. He’s a good link and that’s okay for now.

  • @rhineshark (Comment 125) : I don’t know why we always lost to the Reds…well we haven’t lost to them at Kings Park since 2004 so we haven’t lost to them them that much I guess, but it’s always my least favorite game of the season, because even when we win it feels like a loss.

    I remember one game 4 or 5 years ago…we won 6-5. Probably the worse game of rugby I’ve ever experienced in my life. I would have taken a loss had it meant we could see some action in that game.

    The worse part of it all is, the Reds has actually been a quiet exciting team for a while now, but every time they play us they produce ugly rugby, that when they are playing at Queensland Stadium has also been winning rugby.

    Weird…I really hope it’s different this year. I want to see some tries, at least 4 from the Sharks

  • @rhineshark (Comment 128) : I agree, I would have played him. He’s never played bad rugby for the Sharks. Just not excellent rugby. He’s a good player to have as a backup, because I think by now he knows he’s not really going to get much further than that. Unless maybe he plays for a smaller union.

    This could have been a chance for him to grow a little as a player. And I still think Plumtree made a mistake to buy a player that doesn’t really even bring anything special or new or even better than Dumond to the table.

    It’s a slap in the face for a player like Dumond who has been loyal to the team and to my thinking, was a big part of the reason why the Sharks got to a CC semi last year. He and Mcloed combined well and were a steady influence on a younger more inexperienced Sharks team.

  • @rhineshark (Comment 133) : If you can at least justify it…a little, then I’m not completely against it, but you need to be able to justify it for more than just a season. I, for example, think that Tony Brown was a very good buy. We got him during the time when Butch was injured and by the time Butch got back young guys like Barritt and Ruan had learned a lot from him, I could also see how his presence in the team positively influenced Butchy’s game. There was a little more deftness and thinking to his game, his kicking also improved. I don’t know that we can attribute that improvement to Brown, but certainly it happened during that period.

But no, Fred was brought in and again the Shark’s development in that position took a back seat, not a good move.
