The South African conference is opened in the third match of the Super Rugby campaign where the Bulls host the Sharks in Pretoria, a match between probably the two most successful South African franchises.

The Bulls, after their mass loss of Springboks still field a very impressive looking side, with a pack that will match the Sharks evenly in a contest that many anticipate will be a forward battle, with Pierre Spies captaining the side from the back of the pack. It will be interesting to see the combination of Hougaard and Steyn working together.

Sharks coach John Plumtree has named a side that nobody would have expected from him, with a mixture of youth and experimentation taking the place of the tried and tested approach. Fred Michalak and Pat Lambie in the halfbacks will be catalyst to the backline getting going, with a strong forward pack securing decent front foot ball being priority.

This game should be yet another classic close encounter between these two teams, and it is always difficult to call a winner, but I will follow both my heart and my gut in saying the Sharks will come out victors.

This match kicks off at 19h10.

Bulls: 15. Zane Kirchner, 14. Akona Ndungane, 13. Johann Sadie, 12. Francois Venter, 11. Bjorn Basson, 10. Morné Steyn, 9. Francois Hougaard, 8. Pierre Spies (Captain), 7. Jacques Potgieter, 6. Deon Stegmann, 5. Juandre Kruger, 4. Flip van der Merwe, 3. Werner Kruger, 2. Chiliboy Ralepelle, 1. Dean Greyling

Replacements: 16. Willie Wepener, 17. Frik Kirsten, 18. Wilhelm Steenkamp, 19. CJ Stander, 20. Jano Vermaak, 21. Louis Fouche, 22. JJ Engelbrecht

Sharks: 15. Riaan Viljoen, 14. Louis Ludik, 13. JP Pietersen, 12. Tim Whitehead, 11. Lwazi Mvovo, 10. Patrick Lambie, 9. Frederic Michalak, 8. Ryan Kankowski, 7. Marcell Coetzee, 6. Keegan Daniel (Captain), 5. Anton Bresler, 4. Steven Sykes, 3. Jannie du Plessis, 2. Bismarck du Plessis, 1. Dale Chadwick

Replacements: 16. Craig Burden, 17. Wiehahn Herbst, 18. Ross Skeate, 19. Jacques Botes, 20. Charl McLeod, 21. Meyer Bosman, 22. Paul Abraham Jordaan

    Wium Basson knocks on and the Sharks have a scrum just inside the bulls half.

    In any event shouldn’t the defending team get the scrum from the kick?

  • wow… so it’s interesting to try and figure out what to take from this. The Bulls have knocked on everything they’ve got, which has saved us some blushes. We’ve looked to create more, but have generally looked underdone up front.

    Our forward did improve in the second quarter, though… pity Kaplan is making up the laws as he goes along.

    Bismark and Keegan not leading from the front, but the rest of the pack is doing ok, given their youth.

    JPP looking very hungry, but not getting any front foot ball so far.

    We need Pat to provide more structure, and more patience from everyone.

  • Sharks backline is showing the enterprise that Plumtree promised.

    The Sharks’s issue is weak challenging from our tall fella’s, poor discpline (led by Keegan and Bismark), and a forward pack that is getting steadily softened.

    Also expect more security from Viljoen and Ludik under the high ball. Might as well have played Sithole or Jordaan on wing.

    Not the end of the world. You just have to stand back and appreciate what the Bulls have got.

    When you do everything with a plan in mind, you’re bound to win more often then not.

    NooOOooOOooOOooOOoo!!!

    Can’t they put him with the Afrikaans commentary?

    Last year Keegan was a massive discipline problem. He and Bismarck must have given away 50% of our penalties at the very least.

  • Not a bad result for the sharks ,more than anything some players got some game time(Jordaan etc) .One thing we should be incredibly bitter about are our line-outs and the breakdown ,Bismarck had a night mare of a game.
    Truth of the matter is we had no answer to the Bulls superior tactical game ,their kick and chase game was really good.
    Whitehead was really good tonight .

    But that doesn’t mean that YOU have to be a chop about it. Subtle, yet important difference. Be happy when your team wins, not when somebody else’e team loses.

    Our problem now is almost that we have too many good centres! What are the chances?

    I am going to stick my neck out and risk the ire of auntie Sharon… Patrick was poor tonight.

  • @robdylan (Comment 324) : I wouldn’t say poor, but Morne outplayed him by quite a bit. I do believe Basson and Akona was testing, and crossing the offside line on a few occasions

  • All in all, I was impressed by our backline as a whole, Mich and Lambie were ok, Tim and JPP were good, Ludik was solid, Mvovo was amazing! Viljoen was very good. McLeod had a cracker, although he can be much better, Bosman was tremendous! Jordaan was a breath of fresh air, a revelation, Superman in black, he was better than I ever expected!

  • It is our forwards that worried me a bit, Dale was amazing! Beast wont just walk back into the team. Marcell was very good! Don’t think he can keep Alberts or Deysel out, but all 3 of them can play 8, so Kanko must be stressing like mad, especially after yet another less than average game. Bismarck, Keegan, Sykes, Jannie, all had below par performances, Bismarck especially dissapointed like never before

  • Congrats to the Bulls.

    Our discipline cost us huge tonight. Keegan and Bissie gave away far too many penalties.

    At least we don’t go home empty handed. Got the bonus point for a away game at Loftus. Not many teams come away from there with a point.

    @robdylan (Comment 324) : Thought Lambie played a lot better once at fb. Season still eary days though, he is a class fh might just need more time there.

  • Children !

    Bed time hendrikp surely ..sweetheart calls.

    Sharks chin up ..there was a period in the 2nd half that showed glimpses of what Plum and the team are heading towards ..it will come.

    Bulls well played they stuck to what they know best and have a culture of winning tight ones …Crusader game earlier proved that …the culture is there can’t dispute it. und herr ..it was at HOME by a few ….chillax

    Yet they WILL be found out this season of that I have no doubt.

    NOTICE : all you chops bragging about being 3/3 on bru and all that ..doesn’t mean u know ur rugby ..it means u lucky or full of shit…I’m 3/ naught …and I know my RUGBY .. ;-) :lol:

  • @Die Kriek (Comment 327) : Agree Bissie was not great tonight and so too Keegan. Both were disappointing and giving away far too many penalties that cost the team. Botes looked good when he came on.

    When is Alberts and Deysel due back?

  • Thought JPP went well at centre and so did Whitehead. Jordaan showed plenty class too when he came on and should be looked at starting against Stormers.

  • Loftus rebellion report back:
    - I swear Loftus was minutes away from a stampede on the east side of the stadium with people trying to get in. Never seen it that bad. We must have been caught in human traffic jam for close to 20 minutes. It wasn’t great.
    - Both Ludik and Lambie look okay without being spectacular – I was surprised by some of the comments on here regarding those two. I really didn’t get the impression that Basson was that great in the air. Sure, he applied the pressure but lost more than he caught.
    - Scrums, rucks and lineouts all had their ups and downs.
    - Michalak’s service was a little slow but McLeod was doing the hand-waving thing again which got tired fast.
    - Whitehead butchered a few passes in promising positions. Seemed much more solid in the second-half but rarely spectacular. I’d like to see more of him at 12 – he did well for his first start.
    - Coetzee did some hard grafting all over the park. Hope it didn’t go unnoticed.
    - Like Viljoen at fullback. That boot really relieves pressure!
    - Like JPP at 13 – he just need to pass to his inside every now and then to mix it up a little.
    - Our defence looks promising.
    - Discipline cost us this game in my opinion. Bulls played a more intelligent game but their execution was poor. It was ours for the taking.
    - All in all – it was flashes of brilliance mixed with a lot of rustiness and probably nerves too.

    One final note – I was expecting a lot of jeering from Bulls fans after the whistle. Didn’t receive any – a lot of the fans looked a little stunned to be honest. :shock:
