It’s time to step aside

Sharksworld is hearing worrying rumours that Stefan Terblanche is planning on carrying on playing for the Sharks during the Currie Cup. As much respect as I have for the great man, I’m afraid this would be a mistake. It’s time for Stefan to step aside and let a youngster establish himself in the side.

Even more worrying is the fact that, if historical precedent is anything to go on, Terblanche is virtually assured to be handed the squad captaincy, with both John Smit and Johann Muller unavailable for various reasons. In my view, it is vitally important for the Sharks to use this Currie Cup campaign as a vehicle for future growth and any player who is used in any sort of meaningful role during the campaign MUST be a certainty for the Super 15 in 2011.

Terblanche will not play on next year and showed that he cannot be selected at fullback ahead of Pat Lambie. nor is he a realistic option at outside centre. He has done wonderful things for the Sharks over a star-studded career, but risks doing his reputation irreparable damage if he keeps on going now.

No, I feel Stef should rather move aside, perhaps into some sort of junior coaching or mentoring role with the Sharks, as he has a wealth of experience to pass on to the younger generation. If he could work with the squad teaching them about positional play, fielding of the high ball, tactical kicking and, I feel most valuably, life skills (such as what true professionalism is about, looking after your body, etc) then he would be contributing far more to the setup and overall health of Sharks rugby than he would as a player.

The Sharks need to find (or buy) a useful centre combination that they can develop in the Currie Cup. Even more importantly, they need to blood a captain who is assured of a starting berth in the Super 15 team next year and will be with the team for at least the next five years. To my mind, picking Terblanche as captain ahead of Alistair Hargreaves would be a massive, massive mistake.

  • @Oubaas2009 (Comment 1) : That said respect to you Oom Stef, you have been a Sharks legend after you brief time at Boland on the wing all those years ago! But I fear its time for the young guns to take over.

  • @robdylan (Comment 5) : baited hooked and reeled in. :lol: i wouldn’t get rid of stefan just yet, but i wouldn’t start with him. i think he needs to take the role albert vd berg had where an experienced campaigner is available on the bench if needed. but i am all for the sharks getting their backline sorted out with new youngsters. mvovo and lambie have already proven plum and his crew as twats for ignoring them in favour of undercooked favourites. a good coach would have dropped jp a lot sooner and not wait for a fortuitous injury. plum is far too conservative.

  • @robdylan (Comment 5) : 12 Swannie, 13 Stemmet, 14 Sithole/Murray…I would pick Stefan over all of these guys, you say Stefan will be handed a place in the team if you let these guys start in the CC that would just be handing them a place in the team. None of these guys has impressed enough to really be called up or replace any of the super 14 player…why else would we be talking about buying quality centers. Sure they show potential, but guys don’t just get selected on some potential shown in the VC. Swannie is only playing 12 right now, because we have no one else pushing at that position.

    I would let Stefan start, on the wing or fullback or even center. He would definitely be my captain with Hargreaves as the vice captain.

    Bring the you potential guys on in the last 20-30 min and start them in the smaller games, if their play is of a higher quality than the senior player in that position, then only will I start to select them to start.

  • With such a young side you cant boot Stef out. If anything, they should be begging him to see the CC out as the leader for the new blood. Is it his last? Yes. But he has a very important job to do. Mind telling me who else is gonna do it in this lot? And I don’t see JDV at 12 for the Sharks. For the Lions maybe…

    9 Rory, 10 Lambo, 11 Lwazi, 12 Swannie, 13 Stemmet, 14 Sithole/Murray, 15 Ludik – THERE IS NO LEADERSHIP IN THIS BACK LINE! NONE!

  • @robdylan (Comment 5) : I really do hope JDV comes to the Sharks. I think Adi Jacobs and him could form a fantastic combo in midfield, something that is desperately lacking.

    It would also allow a young flyhalf to develop which is what the Sharks need. No more foreign signing, short term fixes. Lets get Guy Cronje or whoever else fits the bill up to scratch.

    I say keep Lambie at 15. His cover defence and skills under the high ball are well suited to it. Also he should be given the goal kicking duties for the CC now that he has some confidence.

  • The sharks has done injustice to Oupa by pushing him into the holes they created.what is suppose to be one of his last and end his career on a high, he now has to sit with people like TT pulling him down. :wink:
    I personally think he is one of the most dedicated rugby players and always gives 100%. I salute him!

    On the subject of Lambie. I really value Morne’s out and in the box opionions…MORRAS, what is your take on Lambie. What would you have done?

  • Oom Stef is a Sharks Legend and has done so much for us. But he is getting a little… well too experienced if you know what I mean. He does however still have a hell of alot to offer The Sharks and must remain a part of the team set up.

    It is now time to plan for the future and the upcoming CC is the perfect time to get young blood into the squad.

  • Eish – learn the lesson people – You want to take the one shinning light in your dismal Super 14 and get him into the same boat as Pienaar and in the past Frans Steyn and shuffle him around the backline …

    What the hell is wrong with you?

    Leave Lambie at 15 or i predict you will turn on him like a pack of rabid dogs when he fails to deliver out of position and he will head off to a Union or Club that lets him play rugby where he was meant to

    As to the Oom – how he still get selected is beyond me, sure he has been a stalwart over the years but please he has become increasingly useless – One big hit against a semi contender doesn’t make a season and i cannot think of one other game where the Oom served any purpose other than making up the numbers.

    It was as little as two years ago we were in awe of the Sharks juniors academey – whats has happened to that.

    Ask your commercial manager … or better yet tell him to stop importing expensive international flyhalves which do nothing but take your money and deliver nothing.

  • some intersting stuff just hit the press overseas about Kockott. Apparently the seriousl talented scrumhlf signed with Leciester tigers for massive money, seen as though they just made the premieship final..not a bad team to play for. poor chap..he probably got gatvol of wasting all his matchwinning talent on the bench at the sharks. hope he comes back hes still young isnt he.

  • @Salmonoid (Comment 57) : i am sure he won’t mind. it is an important position and if he does well it will definitely up his value. my gut feel is he will do well. if you watched the force sharks game on saturday you could see he was hanging around the ruck a lot as if he was getting a feel for the position. if you have a copy of the game you will be surprised at how much he hung out in the backline.

  • Hi all, its been 2 weeks since my last confession:

    I bought tickets for me and the misses for the Bulls game, and i`m planning to support the bulls. :sad: i will not wear blue and sing the bulls song, but ill maybe stand up and smile if they score a try… that acceptable?

    anyways, Stef will make way anyhow. He said in the Afrikaans sunday paper that he wants to stay on even if it is in a sort of coaching position. Another thing that i saw is that Plum admitted to giving Lambie the flyhalf birth… :grin:

  • Totally agree. The Sharks seriously need to start developing some talent in the Currie Cup. For a union like the Sharks to finish the S14 in the bottom half of the table. Sharks should be finishing top 4.

  • Who says Blanche has not been mentoring Lambie at FB? Who says Blanche won’t be a good choice for captain…It will be either him or Botes and both have the same type of personality on field (or so it seems to me).

    If ever there was a genuine role model on field it has to be Blanche, probably the biggest gentleman to walk a rugby field ever. Someone whom kids should be taught to aspire to be like.

    Blanche has had 1 – ONE – ONE!!! bad season and as is the custom with Sharks supporters we call for his head (probably why our FH tally for this year stands at 0 for 3). Before you throw his age at me, does anyone remember Johan Ackerman? Considering this, can someone please tell me how many injuries Blanche has had since returning to the Sharks? And our so-called younger players?

    So for the last time, why are we calling for Blanche’s head after one bad season? Especially considering his 100% injury free run? Do we really believe he won’t be back for another two seasons of super rugby?

  • @Letgo (Comment 102) : Very nasty letgo, I also have my problems with Rory but the issues I have can be corrected and I will certainly not wish him away. Did you see the Stormers game?? Rory was great in that game.

    I’ll certainly rather let Oupa go than Rory.
