Super Rugby 2015: Round 5

It’s week five and the desperate Sharks are now even more desperate than the desperatest thing we can imagine. Or something like that.

Cheetahs v Sharks (Saturday 17h05)

When these two sides met in round 1, the Cheetahs somehow managed to “out-Shark” the Sharks, who were themselves hell bent on trying to “out-Cheetah” their opposition. Brendan Venter’s rather astute – if somewhat too late to be useful – analysis was that the pressure of wanting to play entertaining rugby in front of their home crowd was one of the things that got to the Sharks. The same thing, he alleges, happened to all the other home teams that lost on that weekend of 6 away wins.

We’ll have a perfect opportunity this week to see the tables turned; just how much have the Sharks learned during the month since that game? Based on the unfortunate string of results, it would be fair to say they’ve picked up a few more “don’ts” than “do’s” but there’s an old saying that you learn more from failure than you do from success anyway!

Away from the Durban pressure-cooker and at a venue where, surprisingly, they’ve suffered far fewer Cheetahs “oopsies” than they have at home, the Sharks really need to show that they can take control of a game and do the basics right. With the team they’ve selected, they have all the right building blocks in place to ensure a comfortable win, but so far this season have looked a little short of cement. Perhaps moving to a somewhat simpler recipe – in the interests of getting a much-needed win (even if I’ve switched analogies in the process) – will prove more effective this week.

On paper, the Sharks pack is frightening. Then again, the same pack sucked the hind tit against these same Cheetahs a month ago. The names on paper need to translate those reputations into dominance on grass this week and I’m backing them to do just that. Scrums, lineout and breakdown will be where this game is won and the Sharks have selected the right men to ensure that dominance eventuates.

Cobus Reinach and Pat Lambie will relish the sort of stable platform they’ve not reliably had over the last fortnight and along with Frans Steyn and SP Marais will need to keep the game in the right parts of the field. The pack is the weapon, but the backs are the ones responsible for maximising the effectiveness of said artillery by ensuring it gets deployed in the right place.

Minimise the mistakes, cut out the over elaborate play (which shouldn’t be necessary against these foes) and the result is a good Sharks win, by around 8 points. The alternative is frankly just too ghastly to consider.

Cheetahs: 15 Willie le Roux, 14 Cornal Hendricks, 13 Johann Sadie, 12 Francois Venter, 11 Raymond Rhule, 10 Joe Pietersen, 9 Sarel Pretorius, 8 Boom Prinsloo, 7 Jean Cook, 6 Oupa Mohoje , 5 Francois Uys (capt), 4 Carl Wegner, 3 Coenie Oosthuizen, 2 Torsten van Jaarsveld, 1 Danie Mienie
Subs: 16 BG Uys, 17 Stephan Coetzee, 18 Maks van Dyk, 19 Heinrich Brussow, 20 Steven Sykes, 21 Tian Meyer, 22 Willie du Plessis, 23 Clayton Blommetjies

Sharks: 15 SP Marais, 14 Odwa Ndungane, 13 JP Pietersen, 12 Francois Steyn, 11 Lwazi Mvovo, 10 Patrick Lambie, 9 Cobus Reinach, 8 Ryan Kankowski, 7 Renaldo Bothma, 6 Marcell Coetzee, 5 Pieter-Steph du Toit, 4 Mouritz Botha, 3 Jannie du Plessis, 2 Bismarck du Plessis, (captain), 1 Tendai Mtawarira.
Replacements: 16 Kyle Cooper, 17 Dale Chadwick / Thomas du Toit, 18 Lourens Adriaanse, 19 Marco Wentzel / Lubabalo Mtyanda, 20 Lubabalo Mtembu, 21 Conrad Hoffmann, 22 Andre Esterhuizen, 23 Jack Wilson.

In other matches, it’s Hurricanes over Blues by 12, Force to beat Rebels by 5, Crusaders over Lions by 15, Waratahs to pip the Highlanders by a point or two, Brumbies to stuff the Reds by 15 and the Stormers to squeak a 3-point win against the Chiefs.

  • Zero expectation of a win for me so zero chance of another disappointment.

    At least the Chiefs and Stormers will play some decent rugby, so that’s something to look forward to.

  • Sorry boys and girls but I hope the Stormers beat the Chiefs. I like the brand of rugby the Stormers are playing with their somewhat rag-tag outfit of forwards. Good basics and excellent teamwork. I hope it’s good enough to beat the NZ teams with and hopefully catch on at other SA unions.

  • I think we could give theCheetahs a big hiding if,Reinarch and S.P don’t kick,leave it to Patrick and Frans.
    Launch it high and if Willie and his hand jive back row watched the game last week you can bet that everytime one of them goes up for it they are going to have more than one eye out for Fransie.

    But if Reinarch and Marais kick their usual crud to Willie and Hendriks we are stuffed.

  • 3 things I would really like to see the Sharks do tomorrow that I think will be enough to secure a win here:

    1. Discipline! and cut down on silly errors
    2. Do the basics well (scrums, lineouts, 1st time tackles, kicks that count, etc)
    3. Play as team, with the intensity and commitment that comes with playing for one another.

    If I can see an improvement in at least these aspects tomorrow, I promise to be less grumpy on this site next week. :cool:

    Gary Gold from way back in his days as Alan Solomons assistant never did it for me sorry.
    He will always be at best some one’s assistant.

    Jake White gave me my second favourite moment as a Natal Fan the win against the Crusaders last year,my favourite was the first Currie Cup win against the Bulls at Loftus,if you were there I need say no more,if you weren’t, pity but then you have a silver star

    And yeah, that game vs. the Saders last year ranks right up close to the 1990 CC win, which is the reason why I started caring about- and watching rugby.

  • @The hound (Comment 87) : My best Natal ruby moment as well. Thats a final I will never forget – wasn’t at Loftus myself but that year I chose the Banana Boys as my team – well my father told me to support your own province and not Naas Botha and his blue bulls because he is a good kicker :mrgreen: . En as jou pa praat luister jy lol. Those days Naas was all the rage and every laaitie wanted to kick like him – you know.
    Anyway that final was immense – esp when Watson shrugged off old Grobler . Against all odds we klapped them at a packed fortress Loftus!!

  • @Spirit of Rugby (Comment 165) : I reckon it’s far more of a psychological blow to SA sides. Chiefs just get on with the job.

  • @Spirit of Rugby (Comment 177) : These last few minutes deftly proving your point. Chiefs put in one good shove and suddenly the Stormers start making silly decisions

  • Either I was the kiss of death for backing the Stormers or SARU needs to force all SA unions to employ a full-time shrink. That last 15 was difficult to watch.
