The brand new heavies

With the vast majority of the Sharks pack that featured in the Super 14 unavailable, at least for the first few rounds of Currie Cup action, the Sharks are going to have to change their strategy somewhat in order to achieve early success in the competition.

The Super 14 season was, in general, a tale of woe, but the one thing that did really start to work nicely, particularly towards the end of the season when the Sharks won 7 of their last 8 games, was the pack. The myriad failings in the back line were, to an extent, masked by the fact that Plumtree and co had managed to mould a truly formidable set of forwards, which was able to secure and retain possession virtually at will. The endless succession of pick-and-gos and rolling mauls may not have been every fan’s cup of tea, but at least they resulted in territory, pressure and ultimately, points for the good guys.

Sweeping changes in personell will necessitate a fresh approach. THAT pack contained the likes of John Smit, Jannie du Plessis, Beast Mtawarira (all with the Boks) as well as Johann Muller (moved on), Willem Alberts, Jean Deysel and Bismarck du Plessis (all injured). The pack likely to be named to face Griquas in the first round (as well as the Blue Bulls in the second) is likely to be geared towards mobility and skill, rather than bulk and aggression. It’s hard to express exactly how much of a hard edge your pack loses when you take a Deysel, an Alberts or a Smit out of the equation. Losing so many at once and replacing them with eager youngsters changes the dynamic entirely and it would be foolhardy to try and play the same style of rugby and expect the same results.

There is a flipside, though – a silver lining if you will. In bringing in players like Pat Cilliers, Craig Burden, Alistair Hargreaves and Keegan Daniel the Sharks are in a unique position to field a pack that, while considerably lighter than anything the Bulls, Province or Free State are likely to field, should also be a hell of a lot more mobile with plenty of pace and skill. Use that wisely and we could end up playing a far more exciting and dynamic brand of rugby than we did in the Super 14.

The unfortunate reality, though, is that the backs will need to be involved every step of the way. Let’s hope that we can see a new brand of Sharks rugby emerging as a result of these changes – in fact, it might even be one strangely reminiscent of the one we used to play back in the golden era of Sharks rugby. A man can dream, can’t he?

  • Sykes is a hard man in that pack, that’s for sure. Young Mike Rhodes is another not shy of contact. Alberts and Deysel are a huge loss at this stage though. We would have always counted on Smit, Beast, Bismarck and possibly Jannie being unavailable at this time.

    Keen to see how Herbst goes, he looks really promising at 3. Would also like to see Craig Burden getting game time, he is a fantastic player.

    Hargs is another who needs to put his marker down this CC. With Mostert, Skeate around he is going to be pushed hard which hopefully will bring the best out in him.

  • @CS (Comment 6) : Yeah, I reckon Cilliers on the loosehead and Herbst at 3. That’s how they scrummed in the Vodacom this year. I think with 2 of Sykes, Hargs, Mostert or Skeate behind them, they should be okay.

    Think our loosies are a little light if we play Daniel and Botes in the same trio but with all the injuries we don’t have much choice.

    5. Hargreaves
    6. Botes

    9. Kockott
    10. Meyer
    11. Mvovo
    12. Swanepoel
    13. Terblanche (c)
    14. Ludick
    15. Lambie

    16. Cooper
    17. Van Staden / Nhlapo
    18. Skeate
    19. Downey/ Ndlovu/ Lusaseni
    20. McCleod
    21. Dumond
    22. Sithole/ Stemmet/ Lindeque (sp?)

  • There,s a problem here we,ve got a mobile pack but the sharks don,t have the backline to play running rugby the centers are a big concern ,other than that the sharks could play a great complete brand of rugby hopefully ,the sharks a f -ed though if the bulls and wp have heavier packs and running backlines we at a disadvantage

  • I read this article with misty eyes, nostalgic for the days of the Bananaboys… 1990 and before – days of Hankinson, Jamieson, Watson, Claasen, Hefer… Recently watched a clip of Natal vs the Cavaliers – and Reece Edwards being interviewed after the match, wide-eyed with “thousand yard stare” after a game where the Banaboys had to deal with some ill-tempered Cavalier intensity… Beautiful…
    Those were the days…

  • Well sorry to say only got to read it now and evenly with gran kids in bed i can relax and enjoy SW and a glass of wine
    So true we can all dream and at some point old ones go and the their play of the game goes with them :cry: and my what a great team :lol:

    But now the new ones :roll: :lol: ;-) we have to well say can’t take the game of the old guys rugby, The way the old Sharks and the new Sharks are well very different just as in the real world.

    So we have to adjust to the young Sharks and hope we have what its name holds to keep up with the old.

    So like most of us are hoping to get is young and fresh blood to keep the vampiers off the cup that should be in Sharks Tank :mrgreen:

    ;-)

    so i say

    :mrgreen: GO SHARKS GO :mrgreen:
    and SW are behind you 1000%

  • @robdylan (Comment 68) : No need to apologise. Blogging is a contact sport and Keo is but one… HG is a drifter in the digital desert from Rugby blogs to the philosophical BS baffles brains blogs, obviously when work permits… HG blogs under several nomme de geurre, but is slowly unifying the personae all under one “brand” of bs… Sharksworld by comparison with some rugby commentary sites is very well mannered – on one notable site (not Keo) I have had the misfortune of being greeted with F.off noob for my first 1000 posts… I now am able to say the same with no guilt to subsequent “noobs”. (A bit like being a fag to sixth former at barding school) So credit to Sharks World for a non-boarding school approach… :wink:

  • @Greg (Comment 74) : Some would say on the contrary, for a WP supporter finding Sharks World is akin to a stranded parched lost soul in a desert coming across an Oasis – a fountain of Rugby knowledge all but missing in a Sahel of Rassie inspired pinpong bat coded team calls and blonde player quotas… So by all means don’t ban WPW, rather he must state the following words : “I hereby swear that I love the Team of Oxlee, Bedford, Jamieson, La Croix, Mendez and Barney. Although I may not support the Bananaboy-Sharks, I have endured a lifetime of envy. Please pity me while I seek salvation in Shark Rugby knowledgedom. Although I am unfortunate to be a Weepee supporter I must say: “SHARKS FOREVER”. Amen”

    That should do it?

  • @Ice Queen of the Blog (Comment 75) : Showzer!!! In my day it was called Class 2, one class below Standard 1 where I could think of myself as a big little boy… I never, ever got a gold star… My teachers preferred red stripes across my forever hardened buttocks…

    Getting the first three is relatively easy… it gets quite hard after that :)

  • @robdylan (Comment 78) : I actually like the fact that I have only the two. Under 21 player! Makes me feel quite young, it’s been a while since I was actually under 21!
