The final is tomorrow and we’re collecting messages of support for the Sharks team.

We’re gonna do this differently, though… no printing them out and sticking them to the change-room wall this time. We know the Sharks player read this site, so we’re going to try and get all of them to come and read the messages here instead.

This does mean that if you post something inappropriate on this thread, it will be removed.

Go Sharks! All the way!


  • Boys, we behind you all the way. We believe, you believe. Bring it home, its time.

  • Good luck guys: give it your best, and make us proud.

    If you repeat the intensity of the semi-final, then the Brokeback Mountaineers will be sniffling in their 2-man tents tonight. :lol:

  • Good luck guys.

    Remember that you’ve already made us proud. Tomorrow is only the cherry on the cake. WP may have big names, but your name is just as big.

    Black and White… nothing else matters. GO SHARKS!

  • Well done first of all in making it to the Finals!! It’s most probably the last of the Currie Cup as we know it, so let’s make it count!!!

    Good luck guys – behind you all the way – and live for “A moment like this”!! ;-)

  • Ok – let’s do this.

    Beast, Bismarck, Jannie – you guys are our major advantage going into this game and you know it. You three guys have the big reputations and the Province boys will be pumped up to take those off you. Don’t stand back an inch, play hard and fair and watch the penalties.
    Steven, Ali – Hit those rucks, make those tackles and don’t stop until the job is done and there isn’t a Province guy left standing.
    Keegan – You can make the difference out there. You have the best hands out of either forward pack and you need to make sure you are always on hand to make that count.
    Willem – it’s been a hard season, but we need one more big effort. There’s a Bok jersey with your name on it… prove that you deserve it.
    Ryan – you showed last week that you can play the tight game. That will be required again this week, but don’t let that stop you from dominating with ball in hand as well.
    Charl – you know how to play this one. Just keep doing what you’ve done all season and the result will go our way
    Pat – you are a legend, chap. Time to add another name to the list of young flyhalves who have put in huge Currie Cup final performances. History beckons and your time is now.
    Lwazi – don’t stand back an inch. There aren’t going to be many opportunities to score tries in the final, but you HAVE to make sure that when one presents itself, you are there to capitalise.
    Dries – you have the most important job of all, mate. Province can’t play their game without Jean de Villiers calling the shots. He can’t do that if you hit him every time he gets the ball. We know you will come out tops
    Oom Stef – Thanks for everything, cappie. You’re a true Sharks hero and nothing would be more fitting than seeing you life that golden cup. You have the team to make it happen – you just need to keep them together and focused.
    Oddie – Mr Dependable. As one of the senior players, you have a huge job to do in keeping the guys around you calm. Just do what you always do and make sure that you nail the opportunities that come your way.
    Louis – Welcome to the Sharks, mate. You joined this team to win trophies – now go win your first and make sure it isn’t the last.
    Craig – Bruce, you have come on and improved so much this season and have been one of the Sharks key forwards. The boys will be flagging and need a lift when you come on… make sure you give that to them.
    Gena – What a find you are… so glad you’ve joined the team. The starting props will ensure that we have Province on the back foot in the scrums. You need to ensure that we keep that momentum in the second half. Also looking forward to seeing more of those BIG tackles
    Anton – You have worked so hard to get there and you deserve to be in this squad. Enjoy every minute of the experience and show the coach that he was right to place his trust in you.
    Jacques – Bootsie, you are simply unstoppable in everything you do. You will be needed towards the end to keep the intensity high and make sure that we keep the ball coming out our way.
    Rory – You’re a match winner, son. Go out and prove it.
    Andre – You have been there so many times before and you know what is needed to win close games. Help Stef to calm the nerves and dictate the play like we know you can.
    Swannie – Dries is going to start the job and you are going to finish it. Those WP centres aren’t going to know what hit them.

    Plum, Bashie, Reece and co – from the fans, thank you for turning us into a winning team and good luck for the final.

    Proudly sitting in my office in Pretoria, with Sharks flags hanging all over my car…truly believing our team, the black and white, will add the gold.

    We are so proud of you already, and tomorrow will be just reward for all the effort of the year!

  • It’s my birthday tomorrow and I know what I want for my birthday. I won’t lie guys… we are hungry for this cup and want it badly, we don’t mean to put you under more pressure but just remember, whatever the result, we still love you. I don’t mean to single out one players but Bismarck, we are counting on you, you are the most talented player I know and you have the ability of giving every pack you play in the edge. Give us that edge Bismarck as it will make everyone’s job especially Alberts’, Kanko’s and Keegan’s that much easier..
    All we ask is for you guys to give it your best, If you give it your very best, there’s only one result……victory for the Sharks.
