The final round of Currie Cup rugby is upon us, and to get proceedings under way, we have another wet game at Mr Price Kings Park to entertain us, as the Sharks host Griquas. Most of you will already know the permutations, but here they are anyway:

Should the Sharks win this encounter, they will end top of the Currie Cup log, securing both a home semi-final as well, potentially, a home final. Coach John Plumtree held back on naming all his returning Springboks, selecting only Pat Lambie in the starting team, while Burden, Jannie du Plessis, Marcell Coetzee and Lwazi Mvovo are on the bench to add some oomph in the second half.

For Griquas, we paint a different picture altogether. They have to win to simply get into the play-offs, and an away semi-final it will be, should they beat the Sharks. Griquas have opted for consistency in selecting an almost unchanged team, bar a change in midfield where JP Nel misses out.

Sharks: 15 Louis Ludik, 14 Odwa Ndungane, 13 Paul Jordaan, 12 Tim Whitehead, 11 JP Pietersen, 10 Pat Lambie, 9 Cobus Reinach, 8 Keegan Daniel (captain), 7 Jean Deysel, 6 Jacques Botes, 5 Anton Bresler, 4 Jandre Marais, 3 Wiehahn Herbst, 2 Kyle Cooper, 1 Dale Chadwick.

Replacements: 16 Craig Burden, 17 Jannie du Plessis, 18 Peet Marais, 19 Marcell Coetzee, 20 Charl McLeod, 21 Meyer Bosman, 22 Lwazi Mvovo.

Griquas: 15 Willie le Roux, 14 Jannie Boshoff, 13 Jean Stemmet, 12 Walter Venter, 11 Rocco Jansen, 10 Francois Brummer, 9 Marnus Hugo, 8 Leon Karemaker, 7 Justin Downey, 6 Marnus Schoeman, 5 Martin Muller, 4 Rynard Landman, 3 Lourens Adriaanse, 2 Ryno Barnes (captain), 1 Steph Roberts.

Replacements: 16 Matthew Dobson, 17 Ivann Espag, 18 Edwin Hewitt, 19 Wesley Wilkins, 20 Jacques Coetzee, 21 Marnitz Boshoff, 22 Richard Lawson.

  • Helter skelter rugby after we turn over ball after the Kwasse attack from the penalty lineout and eventually we have a scrum halfway btween our 22 and the 10m line. We earn a penalty from the scrum and Lambie doesn´t kick it out.

  • Kwasse kick it back and we run the ball. After a number of phases and some really good rugger we end up with too few players at the breakdown and lose the ball. Kwasse counter attack from their 22, but end up passing into touch. From the backline move Mvovs scores.

  • Third try! Lwazi Mvovo from Lambie’s inside pass.
    (Down to 14 men right now, still playing good rugby).

    Lambie has been playing pretty much how you would expect him to. A few errors and looking a little rusty, but not afraid to try things.

  • Awful from Boshoff. Given a yellow; made a late, dumped tackle.
    Could have very easily been red.
    Lambie pushes the kick but they delt with their one man deficit well.
    22-3 HT.

  • Even though he is rusty PL keeping Kwas guessing and moving the line well. This half back combo is awesome……….green and gold maybe.

    Watching Marcelle play, so sad to see HM knock the off load out of him. Still great to see the youngster again.

    What is Monty up to these days? Wonder if he’d stop by Kings Park and help out.

    Perhaps try to get van Straaten in if he is no longer with the Lions.

  • Great rugby from the ensuing lineout, with JP and Ludik combining well before Keegan picks up from the base of the ruck and gets tackled inside the Kwasse 22, where they concede a penalty. Pat
    does the honours.

    Very much a possibility.
    Look at our midfield options now compared to two/three seasons ago.

    Lambie with another three points, 28-3. We have just under half an hour, but that fourth try would be nice.

  • After some half-to-half action with Keegan and Marais showing awesome backline skills, we once again lose the ball at a ruck and the Kwasse manage to get to our 22 and earn a penalty. From the lineout in our 22 they manage a few phases before knocking. We have a defensive scrum in the middle of the field on our 5m line. Mtembu on for Deysel (blood).
