  • Sharks need to go full at the Stormers today, in fact we need a BP, it is much to close at the top and we know the Australasian sides score tries

  • Well there goes number one spot on the log. You need to play rugby to actually win the game. Time for some rotation Jake. Plus a huge change in attitude needed. Nothing wrong with a kicking game but then kicks need to be accurate and mostly gain you something. Just hoofing the ball downfield is not a kicking game.

  • Would be risky to take this gameplan into the play-offs unless we have Lambie starting. Doesn’t seem to work without a proper fly half, when Steyn plays well we win.SP doing a decent job at the back, so it’s only at 10 where we have a problem.

  • Whatever meyer did in the bok camp somehow messed everyone up lol. The bulls, sharks and stormers who played prior to that camp looked like brain dead zombies with no imagination. And poor brussow and boshoff were only invited to camp for the show lol. They were never going to make that team it seems. Meyer hates losing so he will always revert to his tried and tested. Morne will be his starting flyhalf with goose on the bench, and fourie will be his scrumhalf with pienaar covering for him on the bench in all four games. Oupa, lood and sbura will never see the bench let alone the field (kewl by me anyway) as he’ll only be playing his tried and tested. JJ is stront yet again but will start in the 13 jersey and de jong will darem eat the bench but hardly, if ever get called up to play. And then to add injury to insult de allande will play before him also in the (out of position) 13 jersey. See what I did there? I took my mind of the swak game of the sharks and focused on what meyer did with his squad, luckily brits is there so callie visagie won’t even come close to the bench as well

    What happened tonight illustrated every shortcoming I have been complaining about all season (at least since the Loftus game).

    - Reinach’s athleticism doesn’t make him a good #9, seriously lacking in decision making and tactical accuracy
    - Steyn did what he has done all season from #10. KILL OUR ATTACK
    - Don’t think I saw Jordaan, Mvovo, JP or SP receive the ball from a back line move?
    - Bismarck is NOT a captain
    - Loose trio had no creativity!

    Kyle Cooper, Mtembu on defines and Beast were decent.

    I do believe Jake stuffed up by not rotating some players. After the last two tough games overseas it would have been hard for the starting players to pick themselves up mentally for this one. Only way around that is to inject fresh energy by starting with fresh players – case in point Cooper.

    Secondly the attitude needs to change. Sharks needs to start playing to win, and stop playing not to loose. This aimless kicking away of the ball needs to stop. We needs some thinking behind the kicking – not to aimlessly hand over possession.

    And boy, we need Lambie or Fred. A good flyhalf looks like he has all the time in the world – Frans unfortunately makes the opposition’s defense look like they have all the time in the world.

    Jake and co – carry on with this plan and attitude and we are guaranteed to end in third place, or use the break plus the remaining two games to adjust the lack of ambition and who knows.

  • It‘s part of Sharks culture to piss away games like these. It was always going to be on the cards. We just can’t keep the intensity up consistently. Another year of “oh well, there‘s always next year” staring us in the face.

  • How many line-outs did Bismarck miss last night?

    He was obviously already obsessing about playing with his little toy stuffed springbokkie, and couldn’t wait to be done with the game last night.

  • Morning guys, hey no additional thread to rant and rave on? Ah, guess the administrators are all still seriously pissed hey? Look this game should never have gone this way, especially playing at home and coming back from a dream tour away. But unfortunately it did. There was no real standout moment or game play, the were as poor as they were against the cheetahs, difference in that game was, we won. However. Its not the end of the world yet. We made the climb harder for ourselves that’s a fact and we might have handed the home semis to tahs and saders on a silver platter now. But hey reckon we have any positives to find in this game? Anyone? I suppose a player rating would not be appropriate for this week. Things will look toooo bleak. Cheer up though boys. We’re still on top, and will stay there for four more weeks. Happy day after our demise everyone.

  • @Bokhoring (Comment 194) : Correct!
    We could find ourselves in 3rd by the end of the comp if we are not careful.

    And if that is the case then we will not win the comp! Only the Saders have done that before and that was the Saders in their prime!

  • @FireTheLooser (Comment 196) : So true. but what is more disappointing is the man’s attitude on the field, as a captain. There is no excuse for a captain to whinge and throw his toys out of the cot all the time – and he is not always reacting to something, but also starting incidents himself.

  • All Right…
    Now that I`ve calmed down to just pure rage after last night, lets see what we can salvage?

    A couple of different ways to look at this setback.

    1 We can abandon all hope of ever winning a super rugby title cause if you can`t get a result against the stormers, with that many injuries, at home, you should probably rather worry about a relegation match, we certainly have no business at the top of the log that`s for sure.

    2 We can see it as the obligatory ” timely wake up call “, get stuck in and deliver 2 of our best ” backs to the wall ” performances in the final pool games to at least get one home play off game, and hey the boys know how to win overseas, so that illusive title might still be ours!

    3 And this is the route I would take, Launch an Official Enquiry into Match Fixing and ban the guilty parties from rugby for life.
    Cause how will Bissie ever explain the whole Winning in Christchurch with 13 men vs losing at home against the stormers minus Etzebeth, JDV, Deon Fourie, Schalla and Jaco Peyper issue?? :twisted:

  • @Stiko85 (Comment 197) :
    Yeah, youre right. We need to keep perspective. After all, we also won a few games we shouldnt have.

    I think what made this loss really bad was that it wasnt just a boring gameplan – it was a disinterested performance from a number of guys with their eyes on the Bok squad. A case in point is the number of lost lineouts to a makeshift lock pairing. Bismark didnt pitch up at all.

    Lets hope the guys wake up for the last 2 pool games; all is far from lost.

  • If this team can get its act together, it has shown that like in the Saders game it can make history. A final in Sydney would be tough but not impossible.

  • @Bokhoring (Comment 202) : a final in Sydney would in all likelihood mean ANOTHER large final loss. History tells us this. And another new team winning the trophy before the Sharks do.

    No, yesterday’s loss was huge in terms of the grand scheme of things. We may just have kissed home advantage good bye. Typical Sharks really.

  • @Feather (Comment 203) : Yeah…my gut tells me the same! I couldn’t sleep from somewhere around 4 this morning just thinking about. Of course, we could still end top…OR second and then have someone beat the Tahs in Sydney in the semi and still have a home final. Or is that just wishful thinking?

    My prediction is that that is where they’ll remain.

    And then it’s just two wins from glory.

    Big picture – this is a minor speed wobble.

  • Jake blaming the Springbok camp/HM is pathetic ! The Stormers were well represented at the camp, playing with half a team and no captain. Come on we had a shit day.

    Do you think the players that were selected for the Springboks, were informed of their selection before the match ?

    We must now regroup, hope there is no serious injuries at the Springboks and regain our momentum.

    Not worried where we play the playoffs. We loose stupidly at home and win spectacularly away !

    Go Sharks ! We are now in the business end of S15.

  • @Observer (Comment 219) : In Jake’s defence…for our boys the camp did come just as they set foot in SA after a tough tour while the Stormers have been at home for weeks…I reckon that makes difference. Of course, it doesn’t change the fact that we were just really, really poor!!

  • @Observer (Comment 219) : Yes – Jake knew before that his starting players are fatigued, that there would be a Bok camp and that the Boks would be distracted by the coming June tests. He should have started with some of his second stringers – change the entire front row, rest Alberts and Steyn.

    The team was flat. The previous two games were really tough and took a lot of out of the players.

    Third place is in the bag – first and second now require other teams to do the Sharks some favors. Regardless of what happens Jake and co need to focus on a couple of things:
    - if you want to play a kicking game, sort out the tactical kicking. There has to be some thinking behind what you want to achieve with each kick
    - starting working on some attacking plays, and drill respect for possession into the team’s heads.

    The main attacking play on Saturday consisted of Frans passing the ball to a loose forward (mainly to Tera) would got smashed back by three Stormers waiting. It is utterly predictable and does not work.

    The team looked promising for 10 minutes, and then just decided to stop playing rugby. A bit more patience and it could have been a long night for the Stormers.

  • I honestly dont think the Sharks were that bad. Scrums were pretty good although 1 or 2 went less than perfect. Same for the lineouts. So those 2 areas and then the common Sharks problem of putting away try scoring opportunities was evident again. But these are things that have happened all year so I wont say we were worse than any other game barring the Highlanders stuff up. Again if Jaco Peyper and his touch judge did their job Nizam Carr would have been blown offside we would have kicked the ball into touch and claimed a win and then what would the assessment have been?

  • @Observer (Comment 219) : The Stormers were equally crap. I dont know if it was the Bok camp but the Stormers were a shadow of the team that played the week before – the fact that they won does not mean that they were in any way good, and that makes our loss even more frustrating.

    That does not negate that sheldon was right and what should of happened was for the stormers being called for being offside at the breakdown. We should have come away with a tight fought, error ridden, boring victory. Just like in most our matches.
