Plum spoilt for choice

John Plumtree has a few difficult choices to make this week, as he has to try put a balanced team together that can challenge the Bulls and in the same breath keep some sort of continuity. Here are some of his selection conundrums:

2. Bismarck v Burden – Burden has been one of the greatest hookers in the competition this year, and showed the Bulls how it’s done the last time they met in Durban. Burden could be very handy in the looser game and with the Bulls front row not quite a strong, Burden could be the initiator of good play. Bismarck is strong and can run a mile, but Bissie takes a while to find his feet after a break. Plums likely pick: Bismarck. My pick: Burden.

3. Jannie v van Staden – van Staden must be the find of the season for the Sharks, in the front row at least if you want to give that award to Lambie. He has shown that he a strong scrummager and loves hitting the rucks hard. Jannie on the other hand, has shown good form in the last couple of games. Jannie is a bit more penalty prone, but the experience in a big match counts. Plums likely pick: Jannie du Plessis.

4 & 5. Sykes v Mostert v Hargreaves – In the lock department we are a clear second in comparison to the Bulls, so we have to choose them to suit out game plan and use them as such. We need two big strong boys to get the scrum moving forward, yet still have locks that can secure us lineout ball. Mostert has been growing in confidence since coming back, and is a big strong carrier of the ball like Alberts. I would certainly have Mostert in my starting lineup, but who do you drop to the bench? Hargreaves has not been in the best form of his life, and Sykes does do more on the hard graft, so that sways my decision. Plums likely pick: Sykes and Hargreaves. My pick: Sykes and Mostert.

6 & 8. Botes v Daniel v Kankowski – Let’s be honest, there is no doubt that if fit, Willem Alberts will be wearing the 7 jersey, so lets look at the other two loose forward positions. Daniel is the in form player of the 3, and in my opinion, cannot be left out of the team. He turns matches out of nowhere and has shown to be a good leader, and we need all the leadership we can get come semi time. Botes is the work horse, and you can see the difference in the team dynamic if he is not there. Kanko is a brilliant player, but as he has shown lately, is not in the best of form. In my opinion, you can only play one of either Kankowski or Daniel, as both are quite similar players and you nee a work horse and an Alberts. Plums like pick: Daniel, Alberts, Kankowski. My pick: Botes, Alberts, Daniel.

9. McLeod v Kockott – The slow loopy pass v the quick service. It’s simple really, Kockott to sit on the bench, McLeod to start. Plums likely pick: McLeod.

10. Lambie v Pretorius – Pretorius was tried at flyhalf in a big match, and it just did not work, he was too far back in the pocket and the backline was ineffective as a result. But do you blame him or the ball he got from Kockott? Lambie is the answer for the Sharks at 10, and that should not be messed with. His kicking has improved, and he has the ability to light up our otherwise dull backline. Plums likely pick: Lambie.

11 & 14. Pietersen v Mvovo v Ndungane v Terblanche – You will note that I put Oom Stef in the mix with the wings, just as he can play there and its an option. If Pietersen is fit, he should play. It’s a no brainer. The guy can run fast, tackle, run faster and is generally full of energy. The choice then comes down to Mvovo and Ndungane, and even though Mvovo has been a great find and is in try scoring form, Ndungane’s work rate far exceeds Mvovo’s. If I could rule the roost, I would have Pietersen and Terblanche as my wings as both are experienced and good under the high ball that is known as Morne Steyn’s boot. Plums likely pick: Pietersen and Mvovo.

12 & 13. Terblanche v Strauss v Swanepoel v Jacobs – As captain, Stefan should be in the backline somewhere. I would not put him as fullback, as Ludik is super at the back. And with the wings sewn up in Plum’s eyes, that leaves Stef with the 13 jersey. Strauss is immense on defence, and deserves to be in this team based purely on that fact. But Adi is back, and with a point to prove, and after what I saw on Saturday, should make life interesting for the Bulls. He will be raring to go, but is probably still not quite match fit. Plum is likely to stick Adi on the bench and go with Strauss and Terblanche. I would have Terblanche on the wing and start with Strauss and Adi.

15. Ludik v Ludik – Ludik. Easy game.

Plum’s likely team:

Beast
Bismarck
Jannie
Sykes
Hargreaves
Daniel
Alberts
Kankowski
McLeod
Lambie
Mvovo
Strauss
Terblanche
Pietersen
Ludik

My team (for what it’s worth):

Beast
Burden
Jannie
Sykes
Mostert
Botes
Alberts
Daniel
McLeod
Lambie
Terblanche
Strauss
Jacobs
Pietersen
Ludik

  • @VanWilder (Comment 1) : that is the one I just can’t call.

    NEED to have Keegan in the team and he can’t be picked at 6 ahead of Botes. So he surely must start at 8? Or do you pick Kanko there for the first 50 minutes and give Keegan half an hour (at 8) at the end?

  • @robdylan (Comment 5) :

    Here is a bit of a left field option:

    We desperately need a decent 12 (No offence Andries Strauss), why not give Kanko a go, he is big, has the pace and distribution skills. WP tried it with Koster on the wing, but he was kak and slow.

    But that said, its a semi and we can’t try new things now.

  • @robdylan (Comment 5) : its a tough one. maybe play keegan at centre ;-)

    serious now, i think i would start with Kanko, Alberts and Botes and bring on Keegan after 50minutes. By then the game would have oppened up quite a bit and by then Plum can decide to bring him on for Kanko (if not effective) or for Botes (if we are chasing the game).

  • @robdylan (Comment 6) :

    He has been slacking a bit Rob, every week n your numbers artile he is coming out in the bottom for work rate. Mostert is a ball carrier who still hits rucks. Sykes does the hard work as well.

  • @robdylan (Comment 6) : imo, at lock everyone is playing on par for me right now, no one standing out, which is a pity. looking at the stats we saw mostert and Sykes doing the hard work upfront in the last few games, i`m still not convinced that hargreaves deserves a place in the starting 15. i hope he proves me wrong this weekend if starting.

  • @Richard Ferguson (Comment 3) : Ill go with Beast, Bissie and Eugene in the Front Row. Eugene has impressed, quite a lot, the man is strong, he is fit, and not as penalty prone. I know experience will count, But penaltys will count as well. Because Morne is not likely to miss anywhere inside the Sharks half.

  • this throwing in boks did not work on Sat. Fortunately it was not a semifinal.

    I would like to see Burden with Eugene and Beast. DuPs can sit on the bench and get in 50-60 min.

  • Why not start with Alberts, Keegan and Kanko. If Kanko is out of form and Keegan is hot, after 45/50min take Kanko of, put keegan at 8 and bring Botes in on 6. Or other way around if keegan is not so hot, just do a straight swop with botes?

  • Well to ad, Adi looks solid, more bulkier, fitter, faster and hungry to tackle…Still wondering why JF (looks quite leaner) try to round him instead of steamroll over him, maybe perhaps Adi’s new-look body frame gave him a :shock:

  • I like your team selection Richard. But I just don’t know about playing Oom stef on the wing. Sure he can cover when Morne starts using his boot, but he lacks serious pace. If the forwards could keep our backline on the front foot then the pace of Mvovo will come into play.

    One more question… If you could select the team, would you really select Jannie above van Staden?

  • jeez, so it’s safe to assume that we all agree to disagree? :)

    Great article, Richie… really stimulating the debate here.

    Biz and Jannie will do fine for us in a semi. They’ll have had the riot act read to them. Gena is also a bit of a penalty-machine if you look at his stats, so I’m more than happy to go with Jannemen and rotate all day long as little niggles pop up and then miraculously disappear again!

    Hargreaves is a great continuity player, but with the Bulls looking a little light in the tight five (Steenkamp and Botha missing) I would probably also pick Sykes and Mostert to really hammer home our advantage. Hargs can come on when we need to speed the game at towards the end, along with Burden and (yes) Kanko. I’m starting with Keegan at 8 and Botes at 6 for this one. You can’t argue with form.

    My backline is the one that has worked for us all season… McLeod, Lambie, Mvovo, Strauss, Stef, Odwa and Ludik.

    Rocket, Adi and JP on the bench. Sorry, but I don’t have room for Pretorius. That’s just life!

  • @Farlington (Comment 18) : Mvoves is the only finisher we have in the side. How the hell can you even consider dropping your main try-scorer ahead of the semi-finals? Madness, I say!

    Sharks create plenty of opportunities, yet Lwazi is about the only guy who regularly finishes when given the opportunity. You can’t drop him, regardless of concerns about his work rate.

    I think you wanted to say that to me as I didnt select Mvovo in my team. I hear what you are saying, but it is a semi final Rob, and how often do you see tries scored by wings in the semi’s. I was going for experience over the pace of Mvovo.

  • One more thing, I realize that it is about winning the CC but I can’t help to feel sorry for guys like Burden, van Staden and Daniel. It’s almost like a foregone conclusion that they will be playing off the bench after all their hard work. But I quess that’s what happens when you compete against names like the Du Plessis brothers and Kanko.

  • @Farlington (Comment 25) : that was the problem we had last year and while I’m sure Plum and co learned from it, I’m not convinced they are going to do things differently this year. What would the fans say if he didn’t pick Beast, Bissie, Adi, etc and we lost the semi?

    Our B-team handled the Bulls B team very well… but can they really beat the Bulls A team?

    Its professional sport. Sorry for them.

    Look at McLeod, do you think sitting on the bench was good for while Kockott ruled the roost. No, it made him train harder and work towards something and look where he is now.

  • @Richard Ferguson (Comment 28) : the question is – Is he where he is because he trained harder and became better or because Kockott has a slum in form and because the first choice left. Not too sure he really got taht much better.

  • adi needs to be in the team, so we must move stefan either to inside center or wing. what do we do if jp is fit for the w-end? do we drop odwa? my backline would be mcleod, lambie,mvovo,stefan,adi,jp,ludik. the forwards really pick themself beast, bissie, jannie, sykes, hargs,daniel,alberts,kanko.

    everybody in sa is going on like the bulls won already, but come saturday we might give them a little surprise, we just need to dominate upfront and then the bulls are beaten.

  • @JJR (Comment 34) : Sometimes our 7′s side plays really stupid rugby.

    It’s like some of the players, especially the forwards, confuse it with the 15-man game and have no clue about how to create space (of which there’s plenty in 7′s) or even basics like how to offload in the tackle. We barely scraped through against Scotland, because of this.

    TBH, I’m surprised that we beat England for the bronze.

    @Richard Ferguson (Comment 28) : It is a proffesional sport, but that does not mean that those guys are any less professional then their Bok counterparts. In fact taking into consideration the amount of penalties handed out to the Dup brothers and even Kanko I would rather go with the “non bok” players. :lol:

    And please don’t think that I’m not a fan of any of those players, I’m just not convinced they are the current inform players.

  • 1 Beast – We need a mobile pack and Beast has to be in it, he is strong and mobile and is due a good game
    2 Bismarck – You can’t go to war against the Bulls without Bismarck, Bismarck is born for war and is due a good game. Always plays well against the Bulls
    3 Eugene van Staden – He is a strong scrummager, carries the ball well and has a high work rate
    4 Sykes – Still our best number 4
    5 Mostert – Big call as this weakens our lineout, however, you need to dominate the Bulls physically and need your strongest guys on the park
    6 Keegan – He’s a match winner and can’t be left out. Can be used as a lineout option with Mostert and one of the propos lifting him
    7 Alberts – Bulls are vulnerable and no one can exploit that vulnerability like Alberts
    8 Kanko – Another match winner and can be used as a lineout option with Mostert and one of the propos lifting him
    9 Mcleod – Gets the backline moving, understands our game plan and knows who to pass to and when
    10 Lambie – Takes the ball flat and gets the backline going (he needs to get Mvovo involved)
    11 Mvovo – He scores spectacular tries, however, he needs to be spoon feed (if he doesn’t get ball we are stuffed as Odwa will never let us down)
    12 Jacobs – Another very big call, these rules were made for a player with his skill set, we need someone that is going to give Wynard a taste of his own medicine (only at Currie time)
    13 Stef – Captain my captain
    14 JPP – Always plays well against the Bulls
    15 Ludik –watched him live against the Lions, he is starting to find the form that made me rate

    16 Burden – can a turn a game upside down, Bismarck needs to lay the foundation for him
    17 Du Plessis – Currently our best number 3, short one game time
    18 Hargreeves – Tough to leave him out of the match 15 as he continuously has the best stats. Maybe we should start him, I’m indifferent
    19 Botes – Becoming Mr Reliable again, the new rules have hidden his fetching weakness
    20 Kockott – We need a reserve scrumhalf in the match 22(never thought I’d write such about Kockott, doesn’t understand the game plan and his teammates’ strengths)
    21 Ap – need him when the game is close to come slot a couple of drop goals and kick for poles
    22 Ndugane –Mr Reliable, we don’t have sufficient wing cover without moving people around (again, if Mvovo doesn’t come to the party we are stuff as Strauss isn’t picked as one of the reserve backs).

  • Some great point people!! In the past few weeks, (except last week) The Sharks won the game in the first half. They basically injected the Nitro from the whistle, and it took the opposition by surprise. Saying that, in the second half, the Sharks took a defensive role, with a more orthodox plan. With this in mind, it makes sense to choose a more attacking team to start, and a more defensive team on the Bench. Thus this is the team that will give us the advantage.

    1 Beast ( great in the scrums, and has to start)

    2 Burden ( we need to attack in the 1st half , and with his abilty to break . . need I say more)

    3 Eugene ( He is in great form, and looks good with ball in hand)

    4 Sykes

    5 Hargreves (over Mostert, we facing the Springbok lock pairing, experience will help)

    6 Botes ( to dominate in the first half, we need the posession)

    12 Dries ( although he is not that much of an attacking player, what other option do we have at 1st centre)

    Jaco scored a decent try against Griquas but he can be a liability.
    I think JPP needs to attack his wing on Saturday!!

  • The bulls are iiiiiiirrrrrrrrrriiiiiiiiiittttttttaaaatttttiinnnnnnnngggggggggggg, go to there website,already saying Jonker is n sharks supporter and he shouldnt ref because he was born in kzn,saying we cant win because we dont have a tactical kicking game and Mvovo is suspect,o and van den heever is faster then Basson because he knew the ball was going to bounce backwards so he didnt chase,o and apparently some of the people blogging can kick the ball that it will bounce backwards 9 times out of ten,annoying
