Sharks boosted ahead of Cheetahs clash

The Sharks have received some good new on the injury front ahead of Saturdays’ crucial clash against the Cheetahs in Durban, with Keegan Daniel and Louis Ludik both likely to be available for selection.

The new for Ross Skeate is less good, though. The big second-rower confirmed via his Twitter site that he will undergo an operation to repair his torn groin and will be out of action for between 4 and 6 weeks.

While Ludik should be a reasonably solid bet to slot straight back in at fullback, John Plumtree will no doubt need to do a bit of backline shuffling in order to rediscover the magic that was so missing against the Pumas last Friday. Captain Stefan Terblanche will probably go back to outside centre, leaving the coach with the tricky decision about which of Dries Strauss or Riaan Swanepeol to select in the number 12 shirt. The loose forward combination will also be something of a headache, with Daniel and Ryan Kankowski in a straight shootout for the number 8 jersey. Flanks Jacques Botes and Willem Alberts have both been in great nick and it’s unlikely that Plum will want to disrupt that combination to find a spot for Daniel, who looks best at the back of the scrum anyway.

The Cheetahs, though, are struggling with a fair few niggles after their tough match against the Blue Bulls this past weekend. While as many as 8 of the first team did not train on Monday, it’s only lock Waltie Vermuelen who is confirmed out, while outside centre Rob Ebersohn is touch and go.

  • Daniel and Ludik will most probably play off the bench, or atleast I would have.

  • As tough as it is on Keagan, he should start on the bench for this one… If he comes in for anyone it must be Botes. Alberts and Kanko are certainties.

    Ludick will walk back in at 15 IMO.. Stef to 13. Swannie to 12.

  • its of the topic a bit, but i heard that the Paarl Boys High Flyhalf, Gavin Hauptfleish will be joining the sharks next year. with him and the Glenwood boy at the academy, we should have a potent u/19 side… would be interesting to know from the current schoolboys from all over the country, who signed for the sharks next year…

    We have a lot of promising flyhalves in the mini ranks. Just need to get the best ones through.

    Problem is, Lambo is gonna be the Sharks 10 for the next decade, so these guys are definitely not all gonna stick around :)

  • seriously, something I’ve noticed about Swanno in the last few weeks is just how beautiful his pass is.

    He has set up a pretty respectable number of tries in the last few games with a lovely long pass outside. That’s kind of what you want your 12 to do… not just run headlong into traffic all day.

  • @robdylan (Comment 31) : Would really help to have Wolla back for the last 6 or 7 matches. Alberts has now got to be managed very well. Team wise this weekend i think stef at 13 dries 12 as per usual this season and ludik straight back at 15. Keegan will not start will play off the bench; this weekend that is.

    I met him in Durban last year at a time when I was having serious doubts about carrying on with the site, since the level of interest seemed to have dropped off significantly. He talked me into carrying on with it, cos he reckoned it’s a very important thing that we do here.
