In the post match interviews with Frans Ludeke and John Plumtree, there were two coaches with very different faces, one of joy and one of pure agony.
Ludeke was first up to face the questions, with a subdued room of journalists not knowing whether to ask anything as the coach looked like he was about to burst into tears.
Commenting on the Sharks backline reshuffle, “they were fantastic from broken play, very organized on the counter attack, the combinations worked well. We are happy to have secured the bonus point, every point counts towards getting in to the playoffs”. Ludeke was also sure that no serious injuries were picked up by the Bulls.
John Plumtree was up next, and he was happy with the way the Sharks came out to play, saying that they stuck to the game plan and it paid off.
John felt that McCleod, Lambie and Ludik had really good games, and he was happy that Steve Meyer was able to control the game.
“Lambie was good, he has good distribution skills, balanced in the contact situation and accurate on defence. I don’t want to blow too much smoke up his bum, because we all what happens then, but he is a revelation.” Plum said.
Asked about the injury list, Odwa and Alberts are both expected back this week, but in Odwa’s case, it might be in vain as he will struggle to walk back into the team. “He will have to wait” was Plumtree’s exact words when asked about Odwa.
Deysel should be back in time for the Cheetahs match in two weeks.Tweet
