Introducing Sharksworld LIVE

Welcome to the very first episode of Sharksworld LIVE!

So here’s the idea – a bunch of us get together once a week on a Skype conference call, talk nonsense about rugby for a while and record the result. Then, we upload it to let everybody listen to our inane ramblings and tell us how terrible we all sound and how we don’t know what we’re talking about. Or something like that!

Anyway, this episode is very much a sort of “beta test” of the concept, so we know it’s pretty rough and can use a lot of improvement. Have a listen, though and let us know what you think. It’s probably way too long, for one thing and in order to keep the flow going, I’ve done virtually no editing on it. It’s raw, it’s basically like live radio and I just hope to goodness that Manie Reynecke never listens to it! There are also a few places where the audio isn’t so great, but we were trying to host a conference involving people from all over the world, so the technology is bound to let us down occasionally.

Thanks a stack to KSA Shark, PJLD, war1, Richard Ferguson, Worcester Sauce and Hertford Highlander for taking part this week.

Have a listen here.

    Haha mate, it will be an abortion of note if I use our experiences at Newlands as a yardstick but nevertheless me and Bob are tight (his pub is 5 minutes drive from my house) and add Claytie and Sauce and you have rugby’s version of whose line is it anyway!!!

  • I’d just like to jump into one of your debates here…

    Kockett is no worse than he has been since he started playing for the Sharks. He has not had a dip in form and plays exactly the same game that he has over the past few years (only with a little more grumpiness, since he’s not getting as much game time as he would like).

    McLeod has just exposed his weakness and with that how huge that weakness was in contributing to our boring back-line. Rory can’t get his place in the team back, if he’s not willing to change a few things that he does…and he just doesn’t seem willing.

    I’ve always said, take Rory out of the equation and you’ll see there’s not that much wrong with our back-line (though that might not exactly be true, but we’ll never know now won’t we), because not even the most exciting backs in the world will be able to do much with the type of ball he gives to the backs.

    This doesn’t mean Rory is a bad player, it means he is a player with a bad attitude. The things that needs to be adjusted in his game can easily be fixed if he is committed to do so, but every time he steps onto the field we see the same crap again and I think that’s why Plumtree has been vocal about this part of his play.

    If Rory could use one of his brain cells just for a moment and start getting the ball out of the rucks quicker then Plumtree will select him again. He has a better kicking game than McLeod, he’s a good goal kicker, he’s younger, he’s an exciting player who can create magical moments, he is a talented rugby player…he is the only one getting in his way.

  • Oh and the Captain should be someone who we know will be first choose in his position for at least the next 5/6 years. Otherwise the Captain will be selected in the team above a better player, and that’s no good.

    Is Al Hargreaves really that player? I don’t think we can say that for sure yet…not about any of the younger players.

    I think giving Schalk the Captaincy (since we know he’ll be selected anyway) until the next WC would be the best option.

    Any other player, who we know for sure will be part of the next WC will be a viable option. Juan Smith for example…I know he’s 29, but he’ll only be 33 by the next WC and will still be vital to the team and he is a great captain.
