Super Rugby 2015: Round Nine

This week the Sharks roadshow heads to Joburg, in search of some much-needed redemption.

Lions v Sharks (Saturday 17h05)

Like an ogre (or an onion), there are many layers to this contest. If we look at it from a form perspective alone, it’s rather easy to call, since the Lions have won their last three games and the Sharks took an almighty smack the last time they took the field. There’s very little doubt in anyone’s mind that if each team simply dishes up a rehash of what hte produced last week, the Lions will win this encounter by a cricket score.

A week is a long time in rugby, though and from a Sharks perspective, it’s probably safe to say that nobody really knows what to expect at Ellis Park. Anyone looking at the team and its proud history will battle to believe they could be as abjectly poor two weeks running; countering that argument is a distinctly “weakened” feeling to the team selected this week, as the big names continue to drop like flies. Countering it again (if a counter-counter is really a thing) is the prevailing opinion that since the “big names on paper” have been the ones letting the team down the most, perhaps a younger, hungrier outfit with a little more to prove might do better?

We can also go back to the round two clash between these sides, when the Sharks (admittedly rather stronger that day) comfortably dispatched the Lions, with a simple game based on total up-front dominance and set piece supremacy leading to a bonus point victory in the wet. The Lions have improved markedly since that day (and the Sharks the opposite) but you have to feel that the same blueprint, if well executed, could deliver a similar result for the visitors.

There are a few key things that need to change and the challenge, of course, will be whether the Sharks can get all of them right at once. Firstly, against a team that likes to run the ball and attack from virtually any situation, the Sharks simply have to improve their first-time tackle success. Defence, once a proud hallmark of the team, has been getting steadily worse each week and if the players don’t shore up in that department this week, they will get hammered. Secondly, the Sharks simply have to find a way to get their lineout functioning. All the blame for the past weeks’ woes have been laid squarely on Kyle Cooper, it would seem and there’s going to be huge pressure on debutant Franco Marais to perform in this key area. Thirdly, if a kicking game is going to be employed, then the execution needs to be 1000% better than it was over the last few weeks and here Fred Zeilinga and new fullback Odwa Ndungane have big questions to answer.

With my hand on my heart, I don’t feel the Sharks will have had enough time in this very difficult week to put all of these pieces in place. I’m hoping to see a far more committed effort and marked improvement in the areas mentioned, but I’m not expecting it will be enough to secure victory. The Lions will prevail, hopefully not by much more than around 6 points.

Lions: 15 Andries Coetzee, 14 Ruan Combrinck, 13 Lionel Mapoe, 12 Harold Vorster, 11 Mark Richards, 10 Elton Jantjies, 9 Francois de Klerk, 8 Warren Whiteley (captain), 7 Warwick Tecklenburg, 6 Jaco Kriel, 5 Franco Mostert, 4 Andries Ferreira, 3 Julian Redelinghuys, 2 Robbie Coetzee, 1 Jacques van Rooyen.
Replacements: 16 Armand van der Merwe, 17 Corne Fourie, 18 Ruan Dreyer, 19 Robert Kruger, 20 Derick Minnie, 21 Lohan Jacobs, 22 Marnitz Boshoff, 23 Howard Mnisi.

Sharks: 15 Odwa Ndungane, 14 Sibusiso Sithole, 13 Waylon Murray, 12 Andre Esterhuizen, 11 Lwazi Mvovo, 10 Fred Zeilinga, 9 Cobus Reinach, 8 Ryan Kankowski, 7 Renaldo Bothma, 6 Marcell Coetzee, 5 Marco Wentzel (captain), 4 Mouritz Botha, 3 Lourens Adriaanse, 2 Franco Marais, 1 Dale Chadwick.
Replacements: 16 Monde Hadebe, 17 Thomas du Toit, 18 Matt Stevens, 19 Etienne Oosthuizen, 20 Willem Alberts, 21 Conrad Hoffmann, 22 Lionel Cronje, 23 Jack Wilson.

In other games, I anticipate results similar to these:
Brumbies to beat the Blues by 8
Crusaders to prevail over the Highlanders by 5
Waratahs over Stormers by 12
Force to beat the Cheetahs by 4
Bulls to beat the Reds by 10.

    Sport 24′s Tank Lanning’s hitting the nail on the head……..How does a CEO go on a 8 day cycle race while we a staring down the barrel. O well guess we all don’t deem the situation as a problem!

    What were the Stormers,Bull,Cheetahs ,Lion’s C.E.O.’S doing last week can assure old Jabba the hut from W.P didn’t do the Epic.
    I sincerely believe that Lions team is ripe for the plucking,those boys are played out,and most of our team is fresh.only tired boy in our team should be Renaldo..

    I am sure he filled in his leave forms, old ”I played one game for W.P and I am a legend” Lanning will have checked up on that,or he would have mentioned it.

  • @Lieplapper (Comment 4) : Don’t see how he would be making much of a difference since he is administrative and the issue is not money or corporate strategy. This issue is between players and coach. He could give them moral support but there is not one person or player at the sharks doubts John’s dedication to this union, so know his heart is always there.

  • @Lieplapper (Comment 4) : Tank. like the rest of the majority of rugby ‘journalists’ are Western Province based, or have an allegiance to the Cape. In our media there is almost only 2 groups of rugby journalists, pro-Cape and pro-Pretoria. I take everything they say with a pinch of salt and don’t let it get to me. I am in the privileged position to meet some of these guys and be surrounded by them on match days and have heard their opinions on the Sharks, and even if the Sharks put a 100 past the Saders, to them it won’t be so much the Sharks that was good, but rather the opposition was poor.

  • This being Ellis Park and this being the sharks I must give it to Lions this week. Ellis Park has never been a happy hunting ground for us even in seasons when we had it together. Also i think the lions had their brainfart moments last week and this week will be recommitted and sharp. I still maintain that we should build the future sharks pack and not focus everything on this super series. The team changes (albeit forced) is a step in the right direction.

    You should be, if the Lions loose, they really let slip of a great chance to edge up on the log.

  • @benji (Comment 19) : What are you talking about,you talk such a load of crap when would you like him to be present.
    Unless you yourself actually work in the union when would you ever notice that he wasn’t around as your only connection with him would be through ”Media/ PR exposure”.
    What is your actual gripe with the man.
    I think its rather amazing that the union has guy that can complete the Epic not the Argus,and that we have a young fit guy in that position,unlike the geriatric oxygen thieves who occupy that position at most other unions.
    Yours is so typical of most criticisms of John. Based on nothing but bitter assumptions.
    When you have something concrete to say about him say it.

I would still like to see a bit more transparency…but I reckon it is only fair to give the guys the chance to do their work…

  • Two interesting stats about the Sharks:

    – The Sharks are the only side yet to score a try in a possession that has lasted more than seven phases.
    – The Sharks have conceded five tries when the opposition has retained possession for seven or more phases. Only the Reds (six) fare worse in this department.

    Gold would do well to stress patience on attack and more urgency on defence.
