The Sharks have beaten the Reds by 30 points to 17 to advance to next week’s Super Rugby semi-final against the Stormers, in Cape Town.

A superb first half by the Sharks that saw them race out to a 17-3 lead laid the platform for the win, with early tries to JP Pietersen and Paul Jordaan both set up by great teamwork. A drop goal by Fred Michalak extended the lead, but it was the Reds who had the last laugh in the opening period, with Will Genia scoring just before the hooter.

An early intercept try by Charl McLeod opened the lead up again, after which the Sharks did superbly to defend their lines for well on 15 minutes, with the Reds continuing to press hard on attack. When they finally did break out, Michalak slotted a penalty to take the visitors out to an unassailable 30-10 lead, which they held right up until the 80th minute when Radike Samo crashed over for a late consolation. It was too little too late, though, as the Sharks fly home to face the Stormers next week.

Reds: Tries Genia, Samo. Conversions Harris, Genia. Penalty Harris
Sharks: Tries Pietersen, Jordaan, McLeod. Conversions Michalak (3), Penalties Michalak (2). Drop Goal Michalak

  • Awesome game boys!

    Some huge guts on display, as well as skill, power and pace. Also nice to see our backs outshine the Aussies. JP was a huge part of that.

    Looking forward to taking on the Stormers but it will be a huge ask with us travelling again and them well-rested.

    I have to say, appalling lack of class in defeat from Genia and the spectators in general.

  • Yeah, you always know you’re the better team when the opposition blames everything including global warming for their loss but won’t congratulate you for completely outplaying them in every aspect of that game called rugby. :lol:

    I love how the ozzies still haven’t figured out that scrumaging is an integral part of rugby, even happier that they won’t be allowed to defile the semis and final. :twisted:

  • I still cant understand how the Reds crowd boo`ed Kaplan. In the second half i feel he missed alot of reds forward passes, Reds players taking up space offside at rucktime and even the “no-arms” tackle of Digby on Mvovo.

    Anycase, what a wonderful performance. All my stormers friends say we will fall apart next weekend, as they feel that we cant give 2 great performances in a row… Thats what we like you to believe… in any case, the stormers could not even give a mediocre performance for the last 3 games against the cheetahs, lions and Rebels…

    Anyway round, its going to be a humdinger of a game, likewise the Chiefs vs Crusaders. The best 4 teams of the comp eventually ended up as semi-final opponents.

    It was amazing to see the Sharks offload in tackles, especially the offload by Keegan for Jordaan`s try.

    Not even mentioning our defence. Great stuff, what a way to kick off a saturday…

  • Hi have just returned from the ground – what an great night.Absolutely hourse. There were very few Sharks supporters tonight. Going to watch it on TV now. The crowd detested Kaplan.I was going to ask the blokes behind whether it was Kaplin’s fault that the TV ref did not award the try. My wife stopped me. I am very glad for Plum – he is a true Shark. Mallet has not got the Sharks at heart. The Sharks were fantastic

    Probably JP, although everyone played very well. Only definite non-candidate was Bosman for falling over his own feet with an open tryline. He almost collected a fivebob from Bismark for that.

  • Genia is being an idiot. Even if the Reds had got that disallowed try, it would have only got them to 24-30. Fact is, sharks never looked like they were gonna lose and the late Samo try really was a consolation score. My opinion on Goddard call is that he was technically correct: If you can’t see the try line as your point of comparison, then you can’t rule conclusively that the ball crossed it.

  • I didn’t get to see who was man of the match but watching it I would have said Keegan put up his hand ,he was worth a 14 point deficit at the end of it all ;that unbelievable tackle on Iaone and that deft offload to Jordaan ,who did well to beat his man. Other than that he was all over them .

    Things that concern me; poor driving maul, poor tactical kicking and slack defence around the fringes of the rucks at times .

    I feel a bit sorry for Bosman, beside tripping over his own feet near the try line he was actually pretty good ,he is such a handy player to have on the bench ! And has improved exponentially at tackling this season.

    Finally Ludik and Michalak deserve to start next weekend ,I don’t care if Lambie is fit he should play off the bench, that would be fair player management.

  • :mrgreen: I have never been a fan of keegan daniel… what he produced yesterday was freaking amazing. That pass that put jordaan away was insane! I apologise to Keegan for the past, I am a very big fan now!

    With regards to the aussies not being classy in defeat, yes Genia wasnt very congratulating but then again he doesnt have to be since he is right. They made so many stupid mistakes at crucial times which he admitted to and Kaplan had a shocking game. Im a delighted Shark but if the shoe was on the other foot then I wouldnt be too please. The reds flanker score the try and that was around the 55min mark. That is stil a lot of rugby to be played. So he was correct in saying they would have been in with a shout. We werent dominating the second half and I felt the entire time that the reds could still snatch the win. The ausie commentators were saying that the sharks were the best team on the day and I dont think anyone is denying that. I think it was a matter of Genia expressing his frustrations. Anyway thats just my 5 cents.

    I hope we klap those stormers!!!!!!!!! :mrgreen:

  • @CapeShark (Comment 36) : Goddard’s decision was based on the question asked by Kaplan. He asked about the first grounding (Digby) not the second grounding (flank). As far as im concerned that was a try. and with 25min left in the game things could have been different.

  • @OZBok – Thats rugby isn’t it. If you look at all your games – no matter which side you are – there will be calls that go for you and calls the go against you over all your games. It kind of averages itself out.
    One thing that Kaplan was particularly weak on,I thought, was spotting the legitimate turnover ie player hanging on to ball, defender on feet trying to rip.
    In that ‘try’ that you speak the first Ioane attempt Bismarch was on his feet trying to rip that…many other refs would have awarded a penalty against the Reds.

I hope that the performance was a wake up call to Heyneke Meyer and that we have now seen the back of Spies and M Steyn ….the Sharks blueprint is the way to go forward . Marcelle Coetsee is an absolute machine, and the form of Keegan Daniels and Kankowski has created an awesome loose trio….I have my tickets booked for Saturday, going to be a classic….The Sharks made all Saffas very proud yesterday, as for the Buls, well….woeful comes to mind.

  • @grant10 (Comment 51) : I am worried about the form of some of the Bulls players’ because they will be picked no matter what state of form they are in and no matter what capabilities/limitations they have. One thing to me is certain; a team that has suffered in recent weeks like the Bulls have cannot make up a significant portion of a national team. Certain players need to be sent back to Currie Cup rugby and told to improve in areas or not expect game time. One just has to look at how Plumtree has handled players this year and how he is reaping the rewards of their form, a complete turnaround in philosophy from last year, but one that has worked.

  • @Ozbok (Comment 39) :

    If the 1st grounding was short, then it should have been a penalty for the Sharks because the ball was picked up inside a ruck.

    Kaplan probably asked the question, the way he did because he saw the illegal pickup and the 2nd grounding himself, but he needed to know whether a try has been scored before the infringement or not.

    Goddard’s ruling of, Red scrum, does not make much sense.

    Be it what may thoughm Bosmans knock on was not one, he did control the ball and rolling it back off his leg towards his own goalline is not a knock on

    The forwad pass from Genia to Higginbottom was also missed, so there is many if and buts, mistakes were made both ways, thats how it goes

    And Kaplan warned the Reds several times about off-side interference at the rucks but never penalized them.

    The Aus press worked the “Kaplan will screw us” angle all week. In the mind of the crowd it was set in stone already by the time the 1st penalty was given, so they had to boo.

  • After the un-sportsman like post match interview from Genia, I absolutely LOVE Plumtrees snipe at Genia

    “Genia turned from hero to villain soon after half-time when his flat cut-out pass was intercepted by Sharks scrum-half Charl McLeod, who raced 70 metres to score under the posts for the match-clinching try.

    “I was a little surprised that they didn’t put (inside centre Mike) Harris at 10,” said Plumtree.

    “Will allowed us into the game because he was throwing a lot of skip passes and we read that.”

  • Plumtree must be applauded for adding the extra dimension to the team….even the Beast and Jannie are offloading. I take back whet I previously said although at the time it was relevant.

    The Sharks now seem to be playing NZ type offloading rugby and it’s a thing of beauty. I fear the travel will eventually catch up to us if not this weekend then next weekend.

    clearly someone spoke to him, in fact the whole team.

    @Megatron (Comment 80) :
    I remember; and while you weren’t alone in saying that, it was absolutely true. The other big contributor for the Sharks is the willingness to bring the backdrop into the game. I’m hoping to write an article on the impact playing 13 and being recognised ssh a senior player has had on JP, but I think it’s clear we finally have some backline leaders making good decisions in general.

  • @wpw (Comment 86) : I dunno Wes – facing a rested Stormers side at home with their miserly defence. Very tough one to call but I reckon the Stormers should still be considered favourites. :twisted:
