Sharks send dirty Tahs packing

Fred Zeilinga and the Sharks have made the Waratahs pay for an ill-disciplined performance in Durban tonight, with the young flyhalf kicking 19 points in a big 32-10 win for the home side.

An uninspiring first half saw plenty of niggle, yet little in the line of constructive play. An earl penalty to Waratahs flyhalf Bernard Foley was soon cancelled out by Zeilinga, as the teams opted for a ball-in-hand style which was somewhat stymied by the humidity. With the Tahs looking to make ground via big Jacques Potgieter, it took some crushing defensive blows from the likes of Willem Alberts and Jean Deysel to turn the tide – as the territorial contest swung in the home side’s favour, so the Waratahs proclivity for breakdown infringements brought Zeilinga more into the contest, with the young man putting over two further penalties in the opening quarter.

Frans Steyn took the margin out beyond a single score when he nailed a characteristic monster penalty in the 38th minute, to hand the Sharks a reasonable 12-3 lead heading into half time.

Castigated this season for their “slow third quarter”, it was in fact the 20 minutes after half time that sealed the result for Jake White’s side this week. As they began to dominate the collisions and the scrum contest, the Waratahs frustration boiled over, with Bismarck du Plessis soon pleading with referee Mike Fraser to intervene in order to stop the Waratahs’ “punching”. The message sank in and captain Dave Dennis was duly sin-binned minutes later for starting an off-the-ball scuffle. With the numerical advantage, the Sharks pushed home and scored their first try in the 50th minute, as Ryan Kankowski held on at the back of a lineout drive.

Zeilinga’s conversion pushed the Sharks out to a comfortable 19-3 lead, which became 22-3 ten minutes alter as he goaled another penalty. With the Waratahs now chasing the game and completely outgunned in the scrum contest, Keegan Daniel pounced, tapping a scrum penalty from 5m out to run in the Sharks’ second.

Foley’s late consolation try did little to alter the course of the game, with Zeilinga ending the contest as he kicked his fifth penalty of the night (and seventh successful kick from seven) on the hooter to seal a memorable win.

Sharks 32: Tries Ryan Kankowski, Keegan Daniel. Conversions Fred Zeilina (2). Penalties Zeilinga (5), Frans Steyn.

Waratahs 10: Try Bernard Foley. Conversion Foley. Penalty Foley.

  • Okay, so my 2 cents. I know there were errors and turnovers aplenty but it was the case for both sides. I found the defensive battle to be thoroughly enjoyable. Great game in my opinion.

    Well done to Fred for nailing all his kicks. I reckon Jake’s going to be very satisifed with his first start. I also want to mention Sbu. Some folks questioned his defence against such a dangerous centre pairing and I think he’s answered his critics.

  • I’m happy with the result. Thought the tahs game plan was to unsettle our hot blooded players, yet they composed fairly nicely. Some shit calls ref-wise on both sides and thought he did not have control of the game at all. Fred to me, did a splendid job! Very physical hard game.

  • Not overly impressed with Mvovo at fullback, mostly out of position when the Tahs kicked.

    Handling was poor in the Vodacup game too, so must’ve been another moist day in Durbs.

    Beale’s real strength is at close quarters, but after Steyn’s number on him, he hung around at the back as much as possible….can’t blame him.

  • Well done Boys….big improvement in attitude. Unless we bring Sykes back think Alberts must stay at lock as our pack seemed much more dangerous than it did last week. Fred, 10 out of 10 for me. He must definitely play 10 for the rest of the season. Might just be able to sleep better at night since the PSDT and Lambie injuries. Keegan, we missed you and that’s why you should be starting or at least be in the match 23, you just know how to score tries. Mvovo needs to go back to wing with JPP moving to the bench until he gets used to this level. All in all, very happy with the performance. Hope Jake gives the guys the week off, no Thursday and Saturday training like the last time, the guys must report for duty the other Monday. Guys must rest, big game against the Lions.

  • Great game. The Waratahs are a very good side and really tried to get us of our game. Usual Aussie sides succeed with this – today they didn’t. Well done to Bismark!

    @vanmartin (Comment 2) :
    Spot on: Sbura was excellent.

    @GreatSharksays (Comment 7) :
    Did you miss Mvovo’s work in broken play? Great foresight by Jake. As for JP, you must have been snoozing during those critical ball-and-all tackles?

    Good to see you praising a player without throwing mud at another player.

    Fred was superb. We know his kicking is great and he knows how to take the ball flat, but I was surprised at how well he to stood up to their big guys.

    Instead of whimpering in the corner because coach had no faith in him, he decided to go all in and instantly made himself irreplaceable.

  • @gregkaos (Comment 15) :Steyn MUST read SW! Hahaha

    Also thought Lwazi did a decent job. There was no aerial attack on him, but he handled the new pozzi nicely! That was my worry.

    I also said to my hubby that the only way to prove yourself is to prove yourself and that is what Zeilinga did!

    Also thought Frans had a very solid game. I love him! (besides the YC that he could have gotten) but he was also on the receiving end. Good grief, but had to laugh at his “ek sal jou mos f. .. Blah blah.” Hahahaha. We can read lips Fransie! Hahaha

  • I thought the guys had a great game. Our scrums were very strong, line outs could use some work. The only real confusion for me is Mvovo at 15. What I don’t get is that its not as if we have no other 15s. Ok maybe SP needed a break and this debate will be moot next week but both Odwa and Frans have played there. Surely the simplest fix is Odwa to 15 JP to 14 and Mvovo to 11.

    Maybe I am missing something and this is why JW earns the big bucks not me

  • @Half-Pint (Comment 18) : that’s exactly what I said earlier this week. But apparently on the news JW said with Aplon leaving there’s a gap in the Bok 15 jersey and Mvovo can fill that. How true that is, don’t know. Did not get to any news this week.

  • Firstly I think Willie Le Roux has the bok 15 spot pretty secure. To be honest I don’t think Aplon is really in Meyers plans. He doesn’t suit his mentality at all. So for Mvovo to be targeting the bok FB position I think is a long shot? Perhaps Jakes thinking was that Odwa would slot in at wing more easily than at FB. Not to say that Mvovo had a shocker at the back but I just feel like we are not making the best use of our talent this way?

  • Congratulations Jake and our team! Eavh and everyone put their body on the line and let the big egos drop. They played like a team for the first time this season. Apologies were said when they made little mistakes but you could sense their cohesiveness. Sometimes even passing when forced back on looser ball. This was a great spectacle. Wow! They must celebrate tonight and enjoy the break! Nobody deserves less than an 8 this Monday! !!

  • Excellent showing from Fred!!! Kicked well, tackled well, made the right choices, played flat…

    His decision making on when to play flat and when not to was exceptional in my mind. Only thing I could say is that he can add that extra attacking dimension to his own running game. (like Cruden, Barrett, Cooper etc.) – but in saying that I am not saying he lacks in attack

    Don’t know how Bissie was MOTM.

    Alberts, Lewies, Deysel, Kanko, Fred, Sbu all had great games. Everyone else performed better than avg I reckon!!!

  • @JD (Comment 60) : Agreed it was a late tackle and did not look all that bad, until Beale hit the ground initially, I am fairly sure he was knocked out when he first hit the ground, because he looked like a rag doll after that, bouncing up and rolling over coming down on his stomach with his face again hitting the turf with some force. My feeling is that Beale hit the ground awkwardly from a tackle that was not as bad as it ultimately looked. Not sure this is how the hearing commissioner will view it though.

  • I loved the aggression and subsequent control Steyn exhibited when he was hit in the back toward the end of the game. You could see he wanted to moer someone initially, but regained control. It was actually very funny to watch the initial reaction when he pulled his arm back like he was going to punch, three Aussies, almost fell over trying to back away. I gained some perverse satisfaction seeing that after the filthy approach the Tahs took to this match.

  • I believe the try was actually scored by Willem Alberts. In the game I think they originally said it was du Plessis, but then said it was Kanko. You also say that it’s Kanko, but if you watch the replay, Kanko is at the front of the maul and is nowhere near the ball (you can even see that he lands on the ground without it) and Bissie also clearly doesn’t have it. The name on one of the apps on my phone is Alberts and watching the replay you can’t see it but it’s the only way it makes sense.

  • Having watched the game some comments make me chuckle. Firstly definitely a good win against a good side. I thought their rush defense put our attack under pressure but only cos we didnt have 2 lines of attack…needed our forwards to take on the gainline and then have our backs in depth- easiest way to fragment a rush defense without chip kicks. I think Alberts needs to stay at lock, ive said for a while now he is too slow for a modern day loosies but makes a great lock. Mvovo was always a trial and not a permanent shift. JW wanted to give the young SP a bit of a break and also wanted to play Odwa and I think our back 3 did very well. But dont think we will see those 3 played together against a team that likes to kick a lot. Scrums were good- typical Aussies taking the scrums down when under pressure though. Will be some interesting selections after the bye.

  • @KILLER SHARK (Comment 65) : That’s why I prefer Afrikaans commentary when Kobus is on….too funny.

    Then again, I prefer Afrikaans commentary whenever Skinstad and/or Owen Nkumane is on commentary – man they irritate the life out of me.

  • Well Done Sharks players and coaching staff. Fred was amazing. This was the first game where the whole team played with absolute commitment and passion. Another step up in the evolution of a great team. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: The greatest thing is we have some backups in the VC side in the event of injuries. Some great young talent in Thomas, Andre, Van Tonder. Hewitt had a good game at lock. A big concern is quality scrumhalfs. Not convinced about both that played VC.

  • @David12246 (Comment 63) : I only saw it once and am downloading the game as we speak to watch it again.

    I only said Kanko because everyone else said Kanko…. was pretty clear at the time on Twitter that I had no idea who scored it!

    I will have a look and if we need to get the records changed, we will.

  • Great result by the boys – I must say we played bloody well to beat this Tahs team so convincingly.
    Fred was superb as was Sbura at 13 and he keeps on getting better :mrgreen: . Was great to see Keegan again and him getting a try too was a bonus ;-)

  • There’s simply no way to tell from the footage we have who scored the try. Supersport cut away to a long angle when the ball was transferred at the lineout and after that it was just a pile of bodies.

  • @David12246 (Comment 63) : actually, you can clearly see it wasn’t Kanko.

  • I reckon that try was scored by either Coetzee or Lewies.

    Footage shows that it was not Kankowski, either du Plessis, Deysel or Alberts

  • @Son Of Mayhem (Comment 75) : won’t really matter for Fantasy League… I have to score it based on what’s in the SA Rugby stats.
