Are you scared yet?

So 90% of the country has already booked their flights to Cape Town for the Currie Cup final on 30 October 2010, where the mighty Bulls will face the almost-but-not-quite-so-mighty-WP in a final which will see Victoria lift the Currie Cup to five million drunk Dutchman hooligans. Right? Well, not quite…

Taking a look at the last few years of Currie Cup semi final history, I see a distinct lack of Western Province winning anything (Did nobody else notice this?). Now I know you all look at this and say: “Yes, but Richard, you can throw the form book in the fire to braai your chops with.” I say, as much as the Sharks are labeled chokers, maybe have a look at your pretty-in-pink, look-we-have-a-mountain Western Province team.

The Cape franchise has managed to somehow reach the semi finals in four of the last six years. That must have been their goal, as they clearly did not pitch for any of these games, going down all four times. For interest sake, two of these semi finals were at Newlands, and guess who beat them there? Twice? In a row? Yes you guessed right… the exact same team heading down to there as we speak.

On the other hand (Jeez, I am sounding just like Naas now), we have the Cheetahs, who have made every semi final for the last 10 years, not including the game to be played this weekend, and their recent record does not look so terrible. In six years, to keep the comparison with the Cape based team, they have won five out of their six, three of those being away from home. So of the 4 away semi finals thay have played recently, they have a 75% winning rate. Again I saw, that’s not half bad now is it?

So now I raise this question to the Western Province supporters that have so willingly joined us here at Sharksworld, and are quick to join the bandwagon of how kak the Sharks are… are you scared yet?

  • There isn’t anybody on any site that gives the Cheetahs a snowballs chance in hell. And I’m sure thats how Naka and them loves it. They are flying under the radar as usual while everybody is beating on the sharks and talking the up the WP and Bulls.

    They have been so quiet… almost like a bunch of orange and white Ninjas. Another final is on the cards for the Cheetahs.

    I wont dispute much of what you’re saying Rich.

    Lets just remember I never said the Sharks are ‘kak’ and I can’t recall any other WP supporter making that comment.

    I have said that the Bulls are favourites and most will most likely beat you guys. I didn’t say I want them to win either.

    Jeez but you guys are a sensitive bunch!! :roll: :twisted:

  • Lol, quite right! This is really provinces chance to pull ahead of the sharks for the choker tag! Not that they are not wearing it already!
    Lookin at the past few years the only diff btwn WP and the lions is how much money they have spent to be without any silverware!

    but i must admit, in previous years, the two finalist was clearcut, even before the semi`s. its the first time (last year included then) that anyone of the four teams can make it. Hell, even the lions could have made the final if they reached the semi`s.

  • OK deep breath before I post this, because I can expect a bit of a backlash.

    In those same six years, sharks have reached the semi four times, and only been victorius once. Granted, they went on to win the final that year, but, in the same period their winning ratio in semi finals is not that much better than wp.

    In those six years, the most successful semi finalist have been cheetahs and bulls both being successful in five out of six semis contested.

    Based on recent history, I think there should be TWO teams feeling pretty scared.

    Ok, so I know that everyone is going to come back at me and bash the Lions, and tell me how poor they have been, and that I shouldn’t be pointing fingers at anyone. Maybe I shouldn’t be, and actually I am not. I am just stating facts, and looking at the raw numbers.

    Just as matter of fact, by the same numbers, the Lions semi final success rate in the same period is one from four, same as sharks.

    Because my team is out of the running, I have been a bit of an impartial observer this week, and have have just one tip for all involved.

    Don’t talk your opposition (or potential opposition) down, talk your own team up!

    Essentially it means don’t brag with someone elses achievents. How did the Lions do over the same period?

    This is play off rugby it doesn’t matter how MUCH better you are it just matters that you are better.

    and last year shown quitre clearly taht home advantage is not what it used to be, especially of the fans don’t pitch up.

    still – it’s fun to do some teasing with the opposition, but I agree with not talking the others down.

    Absolutely it doesn’t matter how much better you are, in a knockout game a win by a single point is more than enough. Sure, sharks have a better record than wp, but bulls and cheetahs have a better record than anyone else. Impartial, cold facts!

    Lots of extra time to comment now that yet again the Lions’ cinderella story ended up as so much pumpkin pie? Shamepies.

    I have no problem with either Bulls or WP winning if we dont. Great bunch of fans (especially the Kaapies).

    Just not the Cheaters or Lions. Need I even explain why? :roll:

    Sharks have had the best season so far, but the Bulls have the experience, and WP have the momentum. Will be interesting.

  • @Big Fish (Comment 70) : Nope, actually you may be surprised to know that I have been relatively quiet here this week.
    Like I said, talk your own team up rather than others down. Why even knock the Lions, they aren’t even in the semi. Not sure really where I knocked the sharks in my post?
    No, it’s cool, you don’t have to explain why you don’t like the cheetahs or the Lions :lol:

    The old crowd aren’t, but the new cubs roaring on the back of recent success have been quiet annoying.

    No-body enjoys fair-weather supporters. Especially not those weighed down with chips on either shoulder. :twisted:

    But I don’t think you were, a review of my posts on this site would certainly exclude me from being a fair-weather supporter :mrgreen:

  • @Big Fish (Comment 85) :

    I couldn’t agree more , I had the misfortune the other day of reminding a ex Lion supporter that he’d jumped ship ages ago .. they do tend to come out of the wood work when they start doing well and given the impending golden age ..lol there are quite a few. And that annoys me bigtime ..I have stuck with this team for more than 25 years ..
