  • Hey Rob, thanks for all the Sharks news. The little I have seen of Thomas du Toit, he looks like a great prospect, with loads of potential. Very explosive for a big man (or boy at 18). What are your thoughts?

  • @robdylan (Comment 4) : Glad to hear he has a good attitude, can have all the talent, but still need to implement it. Sharks have some good youngsters (PSDT incl.), guess it’s a great environment which helps. I do however think the Bulls will be strong in a year or two, they have lots of good u21 players.

  • LOL ” Sharks Braintrust” in deep conversation, just shown on tv . . .

    Wonder what they`re discussing?

    John : Jake I read on sharksworld they feel we should give this Esterhuizen a shot . .
    Jake : It`s too soon trust me, what do they know anyway!?
    John : Well I always used to read those articles by Original Pierre before we faced the bulls and it certainly worked!
    Jake : I better check it out then . . .

  • @robdylan (Comment 34) : Damn thought I had them figured out!

    Okay maybe John wants to throw money on First Try Scorer and he`s asking Jake who holds the ball at the back of the line out drive close to the line . . .

    Hey, while I`m on this topic . . . Who does hold the ball in that situation? Marcel, Deysel, Alberts or K Dog?

  • How is hadebe captain, let alone in the 22 when he can’t do his basic hooker duties at all well?

  • @KILLER SHARK (Comment 95) : du Plessis had a good first half but in the second when they started to force the game he seemed a little lost, but he’s still very young .

  • @woody (Comment 97) : to be fair Hadebe also had a good first half with a couple of good turnovers, but like du Plessis had a not so good second half when the team was under pressure.

  • Ok now it’s half time for me. Time to get some food and drinks before the second half begins.

  • @JD (Comment 99) : yip. But the slow service from Venter contributed a lot to this.

  • Was really good to see some old Westville boys on the field last night and two of them are former Westville 1st XV captains (Hadebe and Kelly). Kelly seemed the class scrummie of the night….how come is it that the Sharks let him go??
    Campbell would have been a better choice at 10… but he played for UKZN against Quins on the night.
