Cell C Sharks team announced

The Sharks have named a strong side for the match against the Cheetahs at Growthpoint Kings Park this Saturday. The side is very similar to the one that ran out against Toulon last week. Jannie du Plessis is the only change to the starting side, while Tera Mtembu returns after being withdrawn from the match late last week.

The backline remains exactly the same, which sees the return of Waylon Murray to the Sharks for the first time since 2010. Lourens Adriaanse, Etienne Oosthuizen and Andre Esterhuizen drop out of the match 23 completely. Jean Deysel, who arrived to training only recently, has been included on the bench.  

Here’s what new director of rugby Gary Gold had to say:

“The Cheetahs for me are one of the most dangerous sides to play against and on their day they have the ability to beat any team. We are expecting a physical battle against a well-coached team, who have some exciting young players in their squad.

“Our guys have prepared well for the tournament and there is a fantastic spirit in the camp. We want to play an exciting brand of rugby that our fans expect and score tries. The only way to win matches is to score tries and to score tries you need to keep the ball in hand. Our players are determined and will give nothing less than 100% effort on the park.”

  • Good team except that 13, 15 and 21 still needs to convince me that they belong there.

  • Team is pretty much as expected, but a good one nonetheless. I still feel S’bu is better utilised at 13, but who to put on the wing then? Odders or Wilson perhaps?

  • @JarsonX (Comment 1) :

    Yeah, I’m holding thumbs for SP. I seriously feel like the first, let say 5 matches of this comp should be the last he has to prove himself.

    Let’s give him the benefit of the doubt and say he just couldn’t flourish under JW, because he really did look like he was going to have a big 2014, as he was in some good form in the latter stages of CC 2013.

    I’m actually just hoping for some consistency, nothing sublime. He can work his way up to what we expected when he arrived. For now I just don’t want to see those complete shockers from him.

  • Im fairly happy with the side altho i dont feel SP Marais warrants a start on his current form. Id rather have Odwa at 15…or even Tyler Fisher ;) Hopefully our forwards gel better in the scrums.

  • @JarsonX (Comment 1) :

    I’m also backing Waylon to make this his comeback season. I always like him as a player and think this could be his season. He’ll be solid, at the very least. I’m hoping he and Heimar can combine to create some space for our two very dangerous wings. They are both more “smart” centers rather that bashing centers.

    We might see a little more creativity and less mindless loose forward like carrying, with them as a midfield combo. We’ll see. I always liked the look of Heimar at 12, he’s more Robert Ebersoh, Matt Gittau, Pat McCabe than Frans Steyn, Maá Nonu, Jamie Roberts. I think he’ll fit in nicely next to Lambie and hope they’ll give this combo a few games together to see what they can do.

    Maybe if Hoffman just sticks to a side and stays injury free he will also realize his potential, which he had a lot of as a youngster. The only real problem with him, has been staying healthy and in one position and one team. He’s really been all over the place, but I though he had a good Currie Cup with as last year.

  • Good experience on the bench, Matt Stevens needs to have a good game, most of us are worried about TH. Lourens Adriaanse has not been the signing we expected. The backline replacements make sense, Marco Wentzel has a ton of experience, and will need to play well, as Ettiene and Lewies will be knocking hard on the door. Good competition for places, and hope to see some good rotation in the pack, especially when Alberts and Kanko return. Hoffman is obviously in better form than Wright, or its last chance saloon. Sithole deserves a shot at 13, hope to see him there when JPP returns.

    I just want us to see the rotation policy enforced.

  • With some big names still set to return, we have one helluva squad available. I’ll be lying if I said that the Japanese league didn’t infuriate me, as the preseason is vital to preparation. With the likes of JPP, Francois Steyn, Kankowski and the injured Willem Alberts added to this team its start to look very merry. Embarrassment of riches at loose forward. Might see Deysel feature at 6 occasionally given his ability to play to the ball with Alberts and Kanko completing the trio when Marcel and Tera get rested with Bothma on the bench. Exciting times!

  • Nice team, but am surprised by Waylon ahead of Sithole at 13. Hope they can prove us wrong.

    Also seems the coaches at the moment are going the conservative route by including a lot of ‘experience’ on the bench instead of opting to blood some younger guys that could come through.

  • Why doesn’t people like Williams? I really like him at inside center. I know he’s just keeping Steyn’s splace warm for him, but he’s a damn good IC. Esterhuizen is huge yes, but he’s bloody hot headed and his hands aren’t close to being solid. If he puts in the hard yards he’ll get there, but not there yet.

  • Formidable pack. Can take on any team. Heimar is a great defender but not quite the impact and advantage gainer as Esterhuizen is. Would have liked to see Esterhuizen and Murray at 12 & 13 with maybe Mvovo at 15 with SP coming off the bench and Sithole moving to 13. Expecting a great game none the less. Lets go boys!!!

  • I am very surprised at no Esterhuizen that is a shocker, not even on the bench
    .We really need that kid to shine,if we are going to beat the New Zealanders.
    He has the potential to put the kind of fear into any opposition backline,that we haven’t had since Lem.
    Williams and Murray wouldn’t frighten the D.P.H.S. second team.

  • Really cannot believe that people are still making excuses for S.P ,he is piss poor, and has used up his last chance.
    You can see he has lost his confidence,has the same look on his face as Tiger Woods these days.
    Only cure for that is to go down a rung and work yourself back up into contention.
    Never going to get it back in the pressure zone.

  • Anyone want to take a stab at a prediction? Sharks by 5 – 7 points. If we blow them away up front we can create space out wide. Breakdown and collision points will be crucial to stay on the front foot. We need to impose ourselves on Joe Pietersen and tickle his ribs with some big hits, will put the entire backline on edge and force Willie Le Roux to try win the game alone.

  • @tigershark (Comment 42) : will look a little better when Frans Steyn and JPP return. That will allow for Esterhuizen to come off the bench as we will have a lot more utility cover available. Williams is a very good 12 and if Sithole and Mvovo are given some space they can eat the yards.

  • The continued preference of Hoffman must be because of his tactical kicking,because that is about all he can do.
    I would so much rather see the 10 doing the kicking than the 9,which is the old Jake White classic game plan, but then you need a Joost or Fdupe type of 9 to do the kicking,Reinarch’s kicking is abysmal and he gets charged down too much.

  • I would also have liked to see Esterhuizen on 12 and Heimar/Sithole outside him. With a strong 12 Waylon Murray has done well at 13 so Esterhuizen Murray could also have worked. BUT even with the selection staying as is 15 the biggest concern here. Esterhuizen,Cronje, van Tonder would have been better selections at 15.

  • I think all our 12′s offer something interesting. This is probably a horses for courses type selection. I wouldn’t read too much into this selection just yet as we’ve barely seen 10 minutes of backline play from the Sharks to date. Very interested to see what sort of game plan we use on Saturday.

    Wanting the strongest side week in and week out is along the JW line of thinking.

I hope we will have an idea by the 4th 5th game what the squad will look like that will carry all the way through. We don’t have as much time as HM seems to have, for settling on a team ;) .

  • Heimar hasn’t let us down. Good attitude on the field, underrated by many. Great to have options along with Esterhuizen and Steyn. Always nice to have different styles.

  • People ignore Saffex when he gets into keyboard warrior mode!!!
    Here is a little fact, we do not know why Esterhuizen was omitted, I do however remember a report on injuries after the Toulon match where it was mentioned that he was one of the injury concerns, chances are he is still injured.

    Arguing over nothing is kinda silly.

  • Regarding SP. I first saw him playing for EP, he scored 5 tries and was sublime. Always wanted to see how he’d fare in a bigger team and so far he’s been a bit disappointing. Having said that he’s still got all the tools he had in that game vs EP and perhaps just needs a bit of channelling to get the best out of him. Brendan Venter is the right guy to do that.
