Replacements: 16 Kyle Cooper, 17 Dale Chadwick, 18 Lourens Adriaanse, 19 Etienne Oosthuizen, 20 Jean Deysel, 21 Charl McLeod, 22 Pat Lambie, 23 Tonderai Chavhanga.

Highlanders: 15 Ben Smith (co-captain), 14 Richard Buckman, 13 Malakai Fekitoa, 12 Phil Burleigh, 11 Patrick Osborne, 10 Lima Sopoaga, 9 Aaron Smith, 8 Nasi Manu (co-captain), 7 Shane Christie, 6 Elliot Dixon, 5 Joe Wheeler, 4 Jarrad Hoeata, 3 Chris King, 2 Ged Robinson, 1 Kane Hames.
Replacements: 16 Liam Coltman, 17 Matias Diaz, 18 JP Koen, 19 Josh Bekhuis, 20 Tom Franklin, 21 Fumiaki Tanaka, 22 Trent Renata, 23 Gareth Evans.

  • sharks playing some ok rugby. felt the highlanders were kept in the game by some rather weak refereeing by walsh. for a team to be penalised at every scrum and not a single warning let alone a yellow to me was poor. that “advantage quick lineout” after the knock on was dubious – the ball was taken into touch by the highlanders.

    @JD (Comment 233) : Im sorry I must have missed that?? I saw Coetzee do that once and broke the line. Every other time it was slow bludgeoning buildup.

    Also as much as Ive been criticised recently, I think today’s performance by Reinach summed illustrated exactly what I have been complaining about. Steyn was solid, but there was way more flow when McLeod and Lambie were pulling the strings in the last 15 odd minutes.

    We know your PERSONAL FEELINGS toward Reinach, so maybe explore different aspects of the Sharks game to criticise, instead of picking on one player, every week, jumping at every opportunity to single that one player out for your personalised criticism. ;-)

    Come on Uli, you’re much better than this :twisted:

  • @pienaar111 (Comment 237) : Well, unless Ungerer steps up very quickly, Reinach will be the Sharks scrummie for the next few years….best make peace with it.

    Think of Reinach as the Sharks’ new Rory Kockott. Now he just needs somebody to work with him on his shortfalls.

    He’s got talent to burn, so it’s time for SA to learn that a player can’t become the finished product all by himself.

  • @FireTheLooser (Comment 240) :

    No-one is disputing that Reinach is a talented athlete (well at least I’m not), he has some awesome skills, the individualistic tries that he has scored for the Sharks are testament to that. It cannot be denied however that his game has serious shortfalls as well, for example telegraphing it to the opposition when he is planning a box kick, which result in far too many charge downs. His distribution skills and decision making under pressure could also improve, and no doubt will as he gets more experience. I know Charl is leaving us after this season, but I would still start him against the Crusaders next week and play Reinach off the bench.

    My starting backline for next week:

    Mcleod, Lambie, Frans, Paul Jordaan, JP, Mvovo. With Sibusiso, Cobus and Chavhanga on the bench

  • Reinach is far from a bad player and so is SP. They were just way off the pace of this game and that is mainly because of the occasion. Under the proper coaching they will be great players. Problem is that there are player management and then there is coaching. JW and HM are managers. They select individuals to play the way they see fit and can not work with any player outside this plan. Brendan is a coach and that is what Reinach deserves now. Look at the improvement of McLoed and Kockott under proper coaching.

  • My ratings (after the overnight test)

    POSITIVES:

    1) The scrum – obviously
    2) Thomas Du Toit
    3) Bismark Du Plessis – Inspirational game from the captain
    4) Lost opportunities on the tryline – Geez, how many tries were left on the park last night? Some may have a moan, but it shows you that we were in commanding situations last night. Jannie’s disallowed try was a bit of a 50/50. Deysel and Chavanga spilt close to the tryline – which flattered the scoreline at the end of the day. Most days those tries would have stuck.

    5) Frans Steyn – So much of the Shark’s gameplan revolves around Steyn’s kicking and abrasive game plan. Tonight he got it right, despite the odd defensive wobbly here and there.

    6) McCleod brought crisp clean service and level-headedness when it was needed most in the game.

    7) Replacement Props – How reassuring it must be for Jake White to know that he can field both Chadwick and Adriaanse on, and the scrum remains devastating…

    NEGATIVES

    1) Cobus Reinach – Shocking kicking game from the scrummy who (despite his opportunistic moments) failed to get the basics right against a dangerous Highlanders back three.

    2) SP Marais – A bit clueless on attack and defense. Basics like kicking for territory and marking channels let him down last night. Not quite sure he is up to international standard.

    3) Vulnerability at outside centre – Having looked at the highlights again, noticed that Fekitoa’s and Burleigh’s try were scored in JP’s channel. Probably better to have Sithole/Jordaan at 13, and JP back out on the wing again.

    4) Hand skills – SA Rugby players looking way behind their international counterparts in terms of handling skills and reading of the game. We can’t thug our way through every game, surely?

    Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

  • Thomas du Toit is the find of the season. Jp and Sbura need to switch. Jp is a finisher. Sbura creates space. We do have a chance this year. We won games playing bad rugby. All we need now is for the backs to unite an gel together. Forwards just need to stick to what they did. Let’s hope that this year we have the luck and bounce of the ball. I deserved to be the first super champion of SA more than any other team. But never had the luck or the ref. I believe its our turn. Our year. Our chance. We just have to take it with both hands!

  • @JD (Comment 252) : ja that is something I thought about, but I think JP is a better defender on the wing than Sbura is. I think Sbura would maybe battle against Nadolo, whereas JP should manage him. If we were talking about playing either of them at outside centre then I would prefer Sbura over JP.

    Great to have options though ;-)

  • @byron (Comment 244) : McLoed is the reason why Lambie is good at 10. McLoed gives him ample time and space to work in. And he does this for the forwards as well on attack. The primary task of 9 is to clear the ball and create opportunities this way I.e. Chavange chance.
