Screw it – let’s do it!

The Sharks are already winging their way to Johannesburg, en route to Nelson in New Zealand where they will face the mighty Crusaders in a knock-out match to determine which side will progress to next week’s semi-finals. Heading off on such a long journey on such short notice, to play a dangerous team in a knockout match is always a huge ask, but if there’s one thing I learned from Loftus, it’s that this Sharks team has the guts and gumption to do just that.

Not that it ends there, of course… The Sharks face a potentially very interesting three week journey – one that could see them visit Brisbane for a semi-final, before heading on to either Auckland, Sydney, or perhaps more likely, Cape Town, before returning to Kings Park to show off the Super Rugby trophy. Simply put, should the Sharks manage to win the tournament from here, it would go down in history as perhaps one of the best performances by a rugby team in living memory.

That’s quite something to aim at.

My view – and one which I encourage all of you to share – is that we have nothing more to lose and must just go out and do it. Nobody is really expecting the Sharks to go all the way from here, simply based on the enormity of the task they face and the team should use that fact – coupled with the same self belief that saw them prevail at Loftus – to go out and prove the critics wrong.

Travel safely, Sharks. We know you can do this thing.

  • @rekinek (Comment 145) : I did see that, didn’t notice it at first, but once Kaplan blew the whistle, it was pretty obvious they had obstructed. I have seen this call more and more often on lineouts and on kickoffs supporting the receiver. The lifters shift their body around between the opposition and the jumper and that is where the obstruction happens.

  • @Dancing Bear (Comment 148) : it is kind of like a truck and trailer. Since the maul does not start until the player with the ball has both feet on the ground and an opposition player joins, if the lifter is in front of the jumper before the maul starts and the defender makes contact with the lifter, then there is obstruction, just like truck and trailer.

  • @rekinek (Comment 154) : Since I grew up and went to school with Kaplan (actually his sister was in my class) I am sure I am biased. What I like about Kaplan is that he does not coach, I hate it when refs tell a player to get onside, or take his hands off the ball. If he is offside, penalize him, if he is playing the ball illegally, penalize him. Kaplan does this well in my opinion.

  • @rekinek (Comment 154) : I agree that he is unforgiving of violations of the laws, but he should be. Mistakes are one thing, but if a physical mistake makes one violate the laws of Rugby, then the person should be penalized appropriately. I personally think he plays advantage very well and as a result does allow the match to flow fairly well. Again, just my opinion and I may very well be biased.

  • @Dancing Bear (Comment 156) : but it kills the game a little. I think I actually prefer coaching refs because the ball is still in play. I can see the problem arising though when you start analysing : this team got 3 warnings, the other 5 before getting penalised etc. In that sense just blowing the whistle seems fair. Must be why the Bulls dislike Kaplan :mrgreen:

  • @rekinek (Comment 158) : I agree it is more fair. Look these players are professionals, the last thing they need is a ref coaching them. Also, the players take advantage of a ref like that, pushing the laws to the limit because they know the ref will only tell them to stop and let play continue, if they knew they would be penalized they will think twice about pushing the laws to the limits.

I feel his performance has gone downhill since then, he is one of the oldest international referees still calling matches.
