Sharks take a punt on Steyn

Despite and incredibly slim likelihood of the appeal succeeding, Beeld reckons the Sharks have indeed applied to SANZAR for permission to play Frans Steyn in the knock-out rounds, should they progress that far.

The ruling body’s 2012 stipulation is that a player must have been registered and contracted by the beginning of April in order to qualify for the knock-out rounds and with Steyn’s contract only starting at the beginning of this month, he’s clearly a little late to meet that criterion.

Injuries to Marius Joubert and Paul Jordaan, though, have prompted the Sharks to apply for special dispensation on the grounds of a midfield injury crisis – somewhat cheeky, one would think, but if you don’t ask you don’t ever know. With fit midfield options in Meyer Bosman, Tim Whitehead, JP Pietersen and even Pat Lambie in the squad, not to mention youngsters like Wandi Mjekevu, Heimar Williams and Piet Lindeque all also under contract and available, you’d think that the Sharks are batting on a sticky wicket.

We’re expecting the request to be dismissed out of hand, but would, of course, be thrilled of SANZAR decide otherwise.

For the Sharks, though, it’s more important to put all their efforts into beating the Cheetahs on Saturday, rather than worrying about what may or may not happen a week later.

  • the sharks just like to think they’re special, they benched riaan swanepoel the whole of last year and THEN when they’re about to get moered by the saders they DEMAND that they be allowed to take him to christchurch :roll: as if he was going to make a differencr.

  • Would be great if we got him for the play offs.

    Agree with PTAshark, if we don’t try we will never know if we could have got him.

    Did you not read the New Zealand Herald. The article by Chris Rattue? Well it seems they more worried about us making it to play their sides….. :cool:

  • @Megatron (Comment 18) : Tell you what boet, if we have to play Brumbies and then head off to kiwi land to play Chiefs, it would suit us better. Only because of the travel. If we had to play Saders and then Chiefs that too would suit us. What won’t suit us is playing Brumbies then having to head straight back to Cape Town and if we win there head straight back to NZ. That would be a travel trip from hell actually. So best we go to NZ and stay put there. Then if we have to play Stormers only one trip back for the Final…hehe. :razz:

  • First have to make the play offs. So everything now is just speculation. Cheetahs will be tough to beat. We may need to get the bonus point too and that could be tough. Just have to wait and see.

    Go Sharks.

    Okay out of here. Catch up later.

  • So how long is Paul out for anyway? If he is back by at least semi-final time, i will be happy, Cheetahs game will be a bit on the wet side, so don’t expect to see the outside backs too much, and well we beat the Brumbies without many big guns earlier this season, so i don’t see why we can’t take them out with some guys out…our squad is strong!

    I would put Whitehead 12 and JPP 13 if we end up in the knockouts without Paul; they did very well when they played together earlier in the season. Lambie to cover 12…we should use Bosman only if we really have to…he is too unpredictable form wise to play him in a superugby knockout game, for me anyway.

And even they are totally besotted with Bismarck. The one guy called him Sean Fitzpatrick with a six pack :mrgreen:

  • @Zibbie (Comment 37) : No bud, he was talking about this year. Here is the article.

    Anyhow like Rob says, he could just be blowing smoke up our backsides. Though think we too smart to fall for it.
    __________________________________________________________________

    The Stormers may have won the South African conference but it is the Sharks who seem to be commanding special respect in Super Rugby’s late season from the other regions in the SANZAR alliance.
    The dominating nature of their performance in thumping domestic rivals the Bulls 32-10 at Mr Price Kings Park on Friday night made critics in New Zealand and Australia sit up and take notice, despite the fact that they remain a tenuous sixth on the overall table and may still have work to do against the Cheetahs this Saturday to ensure a playoffs berth.

    “More storming than the Stormers,” was the tribute from Chris Rattue of the New Zealand Herald.

    “The Sharks have to be taken seriously on this form, and could be among three South African teams in the playoffs.

    “Led by their fantastic front row, the Sharks – even with a couple of top players missing – demolished the Bulls, whose own title credentials were severely tarnished.

    “The Stormers head the South African challenge but are incapable of this quality: the Sharks would have to win the title the hard way but are good enough to do so judging by what we saw over the weekend.”

    Of course many Stormers enthusiasts may be bemused by this sudden high rating from afar of the unpredictable Durban-based side, who have lost four more times than Jean de Villiers’s men in ordinary season.

    Rattue also awarded hooker Bismarck du Plessis his mantle of “Super Rugby forward of the week”, describing him thus: “The Bismarck that never sinks. The South African hooker is a cross between a motorway pillar and Fitzy (All Black No 2 legend Sean Fitzpatrick).

    “Du Plessis led the assault on the Bulls, who took a backward step. He ploughed right through Zane Kirchner for the opening try and the Sharks never looked back.”

    Meanwhile across the “ditch” in Australia’s Sydney Morning Herald, scribe Paul Cully pointed to the likelihood of the Sharks travelling to meet the Brumbies in the earliest part of the playoffs phase.

    “The Sharks will present the Brumbies with a significant challenge if they meet in the qualifiers in Canberra.

    “The Brumbies are further advanced at this stage of Jake White’s tenure than perhaps even the coach imagined (but) they aren’t ready to win this competition.”

    Both the Bulls and Sharks may yet require bonus-point home victories over the Lions and Cheetahs respectively if they are to advance in the competition

  • It’s a good thing I don’t work for SANZAR because I would delay the decision until after the conclusion of this round and then.

    1) If the Sharks qualify for the play-offs, then rule that Steyn is not allowed to play.

    2) If the Sharks don’t qualify, then rule that Steyn is allowed to play.

  • Long and short of it. Someone revealed someone else’s real name. And to me that is totally unacceptable behaviour (permanent banning offence IMO)

    We all know people blog on different blogs and if someone behaves in a certain way on one blog and doesn’t behave that way on here then we treat that person as they behave on here.

    People who carry a grudge around their whole lives are a bunch of verkrampte old pr**ks. Just like everytime England come to our shores we see the concentration camp emails coming out for recirculation.

    Some people are just not mentally up to it to distinguish between different blogs and behaviour on different blogs. I don’t care how a guy behaves or what he says on another blog, if he behaves on here I would certainly welcome him here.

  • @Salmonoid (Comment 68) : Hair pulling in itself is not mentioned in the laws (I think) but depending on the severity, pulling a dreadlock off for example or hanging onto they guys hair for dear life would certainly warrant a yellow card (under foul play or unsportsmanlike conduct) but a gentle tug here and there would just be a penalty IMO.

  • @KSA Shark © (Comment 74) : couldn’t have said it better, oubaas.

    everyone gets a clean slate here and deserves to have their commentary here weighed up on its own merits alone. People have been repeatedly asked to leave the Keo shit where it belongs and one of them today paid the price for not doing so.

    I banned the other guy too because he needed to calm the hell down. He’ll be reinstated if he asks to be.

  • @KSA Shark © (Comment 75) : Was wondering because during the Bulls game Elstadt was shown out by the AR to the ref (Kaplan) for hair pulling. Kaplan listened but took no action but this all took part while play had been stopped for another infrinfement that resulted in a card for a Stormers player. At the time I thought that Elstadt would be carded as well and that Kaplan did not do this because having 2 players binned at the same time would no doubt have am affect on the game. As it transpired Elstadt was later suspended for this. I also think that in a later game a player was carded (on field) for hair pulling.

    Personally I think hair pulling should be a yellow card with the added proviso that the offended drapes a pink blanket around his shoulders while waiting to return.
