  • Try no 8 for the Canes, I suppose the Cheetahs decided not to tackle today.

  • I am renedered “typeless”! These annoying and stupid chip kicks from the Cheetahs is making me livid. Rhule in space with a man to beat, chips into the Canes players hands… Sarel should know that crawling is for toddlers!!

    Bah! Great win Canes, that punished these sloppy Cheetahs in the best way possible. Wrong tactics against the Canes. To gift possession to a team known for their attacking backline is madness.

  • @KingCheetah (Comment 10) : Hard luck bud. Why do I get the feeling that the Cheetahs of last year gained a lot of their attacking confidence from knowing a well-structured defence was in place? It’s defence after all that forces you to know and trust the men beside you. I suspect your team is really missing their defense coach.

  • I am dumb founded at the state in which our franchises are in.

    How is it, that we are unable to build on past successes?

    Much like the Sharks pre-mid-2013, I think our teams are losing their games in the boardroom, before they’ve even hit the training ground.

  • I read an article a couple weeks back by Brendan Venter on how the loss of their defensive coach Michael Horak to the Southern Kings this year was the biggest loss to the CHeetahs. So evident in their last 3 games. They really need to get someone in ASAP.

    @KingCheetah (Comment 10) : Sorry about your team KC. I can only hope for their sake that this forces a massive shift in their structures and strategies.

  • @FireTheLooser (Comment 15) : Pass. Perhaps they thought they could simply continue using his structures without him around?

  • @gregkaos (Comment 16) : So once again it probably boils down to poor boardroom decisions.

    We need more pro-era players running the show behind the scenes. But then again, John Smit’s are few and far between. Closest to him in SA currently is Graham Smith, who would also do wonders running Cricket South Africa.

  • Sometimes the players have to take some blame. Yes their coaching and game plan is not the best, but the likes of Strauss spending all his time in the back line and on the wings is not coaching its him, and is the reason why I have always had a problem with him. You cant just attack, that doesn’t win games, players have to play the basics and do what their position is meant to at a base level, then you expand on that.

  • @gregkaos (Comment 16) : Greg, Brendan Venter answers this exact question in a very insightful column. Have a look: http://www.supersport.com/rugby/blogs/brendan-venter/A_case_for_defence_coaches

    Edit: Apolgies, you’re making a statement, not asking a question and I believe it’s based on the above column. I’ll leave up the original link anyway for others to have a look at.
