Sharks player ratings v Bulls

Saturday’s important win at Loftus turned out to be one of those special performances from the Sharks and the team showed a synergy and common purpose that we’ve seldom seen this year. Let’s attempt to give individual ratings, even though doing so may risk detracting somewhat from a great team performance.

1) Beast Mtawarira. Played a massive 80 minutes and was a huge part of the furious total onslaught forward effort that saw the Sharks shade the hosts upfront. 8/10
2) Bismarck du Plessis. An average first half, punctuated by silly errors, was overshadowed by a much stronger showing in the second, where he strode Loftus Versveld like a colossus. 7/10
3) Jannie du Plessis. A big ask to start such a big match after sitting out for a month and Jannie did a pretty good job, despite a lack of match fitness. Seemed to struggle just a little with Dean Greyling in the scrum, though. 6/10
4) Gerhard Mostert. Set the tone for the match when he caught Francois Hougaard behind one of the first rucks and monstered him to ground. Mossie was the heart and soul of the Sharks tight five and on this sort of performance, the Bok selectors need look no further when pondering a long-term replacement for Bakkies Botha. 9/10
5) Alistair Hargreaves. Stepped up his game and played a vital leadership role in the tight five. Work-rate was exemplary and he did well to manage the lineout against the best outfit in the world. 8/10
6) Keegan Daniel. The outstanding Sharks forward on the park, both on attack and defence. Never stopped for even a second and put in hit after hit and run after run, belying his somewhat diminutive frame. Keegan is a big game player, built for games like this. 9/10
7) Jean Deysel. Made big strides with ball in hand and also put in some truly bone-crunching hits. Suffered from a bad case of the dropsies at times, though, including a bad knock in his own half that put his side under pressure. 7/10
8) Ryan Kankowski. In a properly-balanced loose trio, Kankowski was free to alternate between the tight and loose sides of his game and he made the best of the opportunity. Totally outplayed his Bok opposite number on the day. 8/10

9) Charl McLeod. Looked his old self, which is the highest praise one can give. Charl’s drop in form has coincided some what with the lack of intensity upfront in the last few weeks, but with the forwards rampant this week, he showed his class. Still guilty of one or two selfish moments, but the player has pace aplenty and needs to back himself when it’s on. 8/10
10) Fred Michalak. Formidable! Our French maestro appears to have matured as a player and has added solid defence to his ever-impressive attacking game. His hands are simply superb and the drop-goal that ultimately sealed the result for the Sharks was a real gem. 9/10
11) Lwazi Mvovo. Tackled strongly and showed great defensive presence whenever the Bulls were on attack. Still under-utilised on attack, but the try he scored was top-class and proved his merits as one of the top finishers in the competition. 8/10
12) Meyer Bosman. If there’s a player in the Bulls 22 that wasn’t tackled (and tackled hard) by Meyer Bosman on Saturday, then that player clearly never touched the ball. For a player whose defence was so thoroughly questioned earlier in the season, the turnaround was simply breathtaking. 9/10
13) Stefan Terblanche. Take a bow, old man. The veteran stepped up in all aspects of the game and showed he still has some wheels keeping up with Pietersen to take the pass and score the first try. Leadership, as always, was exemplary. 8/10
14) JP Pietersen. It’s been a while since I’ve seen a player totally and comprehensively outplay his opposite number to this extent. JP made it his personal mission to hound Bjorn Basson out of the game on Saturday and he did that superbly. This guy is the complete package – the ideal modern winger who combines rock-slid defence with absolutely blistering pace. 9/10
15) Pat Lambie. To say Pat was a revelation at fullback would be unfair, since it would imply that there was something wrong with his play at flyhalf, which of course there isn’t. This kid was amazing and the mental strength he showed to keep going despite the idiot in the crowd trying to distract him with a laser pointer was simply top notch. Clear man of the match and man of the season so far. 9.5/10

16) John Smit. Not on long enough to be rated.
17) Wiehahn Herbst. I cannot speak highly enough of this young man. For the second week in a row, he came on and immediately shored up and otherwise shaky-looking scrum. Huge work rate to boot. This kid is the next BJ Botha and he MUST start in the Currie Cup. 8/10
18) Ross Skeate. Worked hard around the park and was good in the lineouts, but guilty of a silly back pass that almost cost his side points. 6/10
19) Willem Alberts. Finally, the Sharks were able to use Alberts and Deysel as nature intended, with each playing flat-out for half the game. Big Vic looked his old self and was a constant threat both on attack and defence. 8/10
20) Marcell Coetzee. Not on long enough to be rated.
21) Adi Jacobs. Not on long enough to be rated.
22) Louis Ludik. Not on long enough to be rated.

  • I think bringing Fred back was a masterstroke. I think he’ll help Pat on in leaps and bounds and don’t be surprised in a couple of seasons when people talk about Lambie the way the world talks about Carter now.

  • Agree with your ratings Rob. Mossie was absolutely brilliant!!! This is our lock pairing going forward for sure.

    Also happy with the balance in the loose forwards. Imo its not our best option to start Alberts and Deysel together on 6 and 7. Keegan is making the no6 jersey his own and I hope they give him the captaince in the Currie Cup.

  • BTW – John WAS on the field…how did everyone miss this?? :roll: But for 2 minutes or so! ;-)

    In light of the ratings given above – I will add one point to Oupa – he was utterley superb and in no way can he get a 8 if bosman gets a 9…

  • I have gained some renewed respect for Meyer Bosman. Despite clearly being injured after a collision near the end of the game he still made a telling tackle and he even competed for the ball. Well done Bosman, you might be a shark after all.

  • Totally agree on Mossie, we’ve been missing that level of no.4 performance all season. And Meyer Bosman, take a bow, I thought one of his tackles on MeisieKind was our of the Pieter Muller copybook. That 3 day camp must have really focussed them and pulled them together, inspirational stuff.

  • Can’t really fault those ratings. As I said on another thread, Mostert should be Monster-t; that guy was like a sledgehammer on steroids, and unlike many an enforcer type, disciplined to boot.

    While I have not always been completely convinced of Ali Hargreaves, I have to give him this; he seems to save his best performances for when the occasion demands it.

    Much, much better from Charl, although I thought there is still some room for improvement with regards to his speed at clearing of the rucks.

    I kept an eye on Lwazi when I watched the game a second time, and he actually showed up on JPP’s side of the field quite often, or at least more frequently than in the past. Still needs to work on making those appearances count for something, but at least he’s working on that. And what an eye for the tryline!

    Mr. Bosman, I was proud to have your first name as my surname!

    JPP showed that the hype around Basson is a case of the emperor not having any clothes; sure, he can score tries, but JP made him look like a gibbering idiot on defence. And on that topic, is there any wing better in world rugby than JP when he is on song?

    I’ve been backing Ludik all season, but Pat made me realise what we’ve been missing at the back. Ludik is solid, but lacks the ability to create something for those around him. While I still believe Pat is our future at 10, that kid is so good in any position he’ll make me want to bear his children!

    Oh yes, and special mention has to go to that little Jannie/Beast interplay early on in the game that saw Doc breezing past Hougaard, showing him a clean pair of heels! Loved that! :twisted:

  • Yes just quickly Congrats to the guys!

    I never saw this coming.
    Special mention goes to Bosman who must have played the game of his life! I`m sure he read SW last week!

    How difficult is it to support an ” up and down” side like the sharks though? To para-phrase an oldie ” They`re like a box of chocolates, you never know who`s gonna pitch up! “

  • @Ben (Comment 23) : We did yesterday afternoon… :grin: I can watch it with all three commentating channels AND the best is – we are still gonna win!

    Talking about commentating – Hugh Bladen was SHOCKING – he got so many name bloopers and making mistakes on what happens later in the comp ” If they draw then it will make no difference to either teams position” etc.Just after Joel said if they draw the Bulls will go through etc.

    Surely SS must make sure he does a decent job? I mean he is an employee, not?

  • @Ice (Comment 26) : I have never liked Hugh Bladen but then again he works for SS. He is a great ambassador for them. I heard SS said after the game that we will play the Stormers in the semi’s if we beat the Saders. They are all idiots at SS imo.

  • Michalak adds the kind of cheeky attacking play that south african flyhalves dont have; that kind of league style play.

    Forwards where outstanding. Above mentioned was the balance of the looseforward trio and I agree ,Keegan Daniels and Deysel work so well together ,they compliment eachothers strenghts and neutralise their weak points. Mostert was outstanding .

    In the backs Meyer Bosman was fantastic and when he plays like that I reflect on all the negative things I have said about him and cant help feel ,for lack of a better phrase…blind. Not only was our commitment better on a/d but our dmaking was great ,partly becuase we had a better play maker at 15 who was still able to play closer to the advantage line where he has been so good all season.

    Lambie is a great prospect and playing him in tandem with Michalak is brilliant and adds huge depth on attack to our backline.

  • Rob, John was on. He came on the sametime as Adi. About 3min before the end.

    I never saw it when watching at the time, but when watched the game again yesterday noticed he was on. When I mentioned it to a Sharks_Lover he also said he never saw John. So now went back and fast forwarded the game to the end. John DID COME ON. Like I said it was for the last 3min. Sametime as Adi.

    Not sure why they bring on subs so late it hardly makes a difference really.

    Anyhow agree with you on most ratings there. Jannie gave away some penalties in the scrum, but not his fault being away for awhile. So your rating is probably right.

    Mvovo’s try was actually outstanding looking at it again. He had the sense to fly in high with his legs up. Otherwise his feet would have touched the line. That try was so important at the time. So for that I would have given him probably another half point or even a 9 .. ;-)

    Mostert was brilliant. Bosman suprised me with how good he can play. Especially on defence. JPP was brilliant. Lambie once again top class, no matter if he plays fh or fb he delivers big time. Blame the bad kicks at the green laser :mrgreen:

    Any of these 3 could have won mom. Lambie/Mostert or JPP. All were superb.

    Can we repeat that performance this week? I hope so. Last week was really confident we would win this one. Knew it would be tough but just had a good feeling about that game, like I mentioned here. One of the best games this Super15 from both sides.

    Nah – just when i saw him for the first time in the scrum, something of him really reminded me of BJ…that’s all. ;-)

    If Pat gets 9.5 I think Fred can also and the same with mostert.

    Oupa played good but I just hope he does not break the line of defense against the crusaders like the last time.

    Go sharks

  • Bosman came to us as a weak on defense, confused guy to say the least.. And in one season look what the sharks have turned him into! Had my doubts but on sat he showed that he can be good- always room for improvement though:) whole team effort is what made me the proudest!!

    I agree. I also immediately thought of BJ Botha when Herbst came on the field last week against the Lions.

  • @KSA Shark © (Comment 62) : Just so we are clear I used hair remover rather than a razor. :)

    That was back when I still took cycling seriously. :oops:

    I’ve often wondered about that. Why does cyclists shave their legs?
    Wind resistance?

  • @Pokkel (Comment 68) : There are two types of cyclists, those who have fallen and those who are going to fall.

    when you do fall it helps make the healing process that little less painful if there are no hair hanging around the “roasty”. :)

    I suppose wind resistance does decrease when you shave especially if your leg hairs extend all the to your back like mine do, but at the level I ride I doubt that it will be noticable.

    Also my legs look better WITH hair as none of the rugby scars are visible. :)

  • Very good ratings. IMO Mossie also deserved 9.5 and could just as well have shared the m.o.m with Pat. Mossie was exactly what we needed against the Nulle. Physical, aggresive and accurate!

  • I watched the game(calmly) again last night.

    2 things I noticed.

    I didn’t think Michalak had such a great game. He tackled very well but he took a couple of wrong options and wasn’t really that influential in the game.

    Lambie joined the line effectively but he was often caught well out of position at fullback. I suppose you have to sacrifice one aspect for the other.

    If I was the Saders and Lambie plays 15 again I would have Carter concentrating on tactical kicks towards the back especially from turnover ball.

    I’m pretty sure Todd Blackadder doesn’t read SW!

    Maybe Plum does and then he can work on it. ;-)

  • @Pokkel (Comment 85) : I am sure they have watched that game carefully. They probably have picked up on this. Like the Sharks have hopefully picked up on SBW’s poor defence.
