What sort of afternoon will we have in Durban – and what sort of performance will this rejigged Sharks team be able to muster?

Given their record against these foes, a bonus point win must surely be the target; that said, the Force were game indeed against the Bulls and will look to go one better this week.

Kick off at Kings Park is at 17h05.

Sharks: 15 SP Marais, 14 Odwa Ndungane, 13 JP Pietersen, 12 Andre Esterhuizen, 11 Lwazi Mvovo, 10 Frans Steyn, 9 Conrad Hoffmann, 8 Ryan Kankowski, 7 Jean Deysel (captain), 6 Renaldo Bothma, 5 Marco Wentzel, 4 Mouritz Botha, 3 Jannie du Plessis, 2 Kyle Cooper, 1 Tendai Mtawarira.
Replacements: 16 Monde Hadebe, 17 Thomas du Toit, 18 Lourens Adriaanse, 19 Lubabalo Mtyanda, 20 Daniel du Preez, 21 Stefan Ungerer, 22 Fred Zeilinga, 23 Waylon Murray.

Western Force: 15 Luke Morahan, 14 Marcel Brache, 13 Kyle Godwin, 12 Luke Burton, 11 Nick Cummins, 10 Sias Ebersohn, 9 Alby Mathewson, 8 Ben McCalman, 7 Kane Koteka, 6 Steve Mafi, 5 Adam Coleman, 4 Sam Wykes (captain), 3 Tetera Faulkner, 2 Nathan Charles, 1 Pekahou Cowan.
Replacements: 16 Heath Tessmann, 17 Chris Heiberg, 18 Oliver Hoskins, 19 Wilhelm Steenkamp, 20 Angus Cottrell, 21 Ian Prior, 22 Zack Holmes, 23 Dane Haylett-Petty.

  • Too many basic errors by the Sharks. Hoffman has been dreadful and Cooper is struggling to throw in straight. Momentum stopping. Even worse, the Sharks have not converted their clear superiority into points. Always worries me when teams fail to do this.

    Oh yes, and I’ve seen enough to remember why Steyn is no flyhalve’s backside.

    Better word wakker and soon before the Force get a sniff and dig in.

    1. Frans Steyn is not a 10.
    2. JPP is not a 13 – he’s a 14.
    3. Hoffman should be sent back to WP.

    A win here would take us to the top of the SA conference but it wouldnt surprise me if the Sharks somehow contrived to bottle it against the weight of all expectation and ambition.

  • The Sharks were extremely poor and were lucky the TMO disallowed what looked to be a perfectly legitimate Force try. With a bit of better finishing the Force could have scored 2 or 3 more tries. The Force looked the more threatening of the 2 sides. The Sharks couldn’t string more than 3 or 4 phases together and looked disjointed as usual.

    C’mon Sharks you can do better!

    C’mon Gold, we know you can say the right things to the press but can you oversee an improvement?
