  • It’s been a while since I’ve had a good feeling about an upcoming game. Butterflies are going nuts, but to look at it another way the Sharks are 80 minutes away from getting things back on track

  • Dear Sharks

    My three wishes for this game:
    1) That the Sharks win
    2) Notwithstanding point 1) above, that that overgrown girl Pierre Spies does not score a try against us, and
    3) That Conrad Hoffman gets nowhere near the field of play

    Much obliged

  • At least we prevented the Bulls from scoring 4 tries. About the only positive from the game.

  • 13 turnovers conceded by the Sharks. No respect for the ball. No respect for possession. No respect for the jersey. No passion. Eat shit Sharks!

  • So Venter apologised for neglecting defense. That’s cool considering all the time they’ve obviously put into scoring all those tries.

  • We have one game changer: Reinach…sadly he as reliable as a woman in the red light district.

    The rest of our team is for the most part playing like drones, waiting for someone else to take the lead and do something.

  • @Ben (Comment 122) : Poor ball protection has been a Sharks problem for years. Nothing new. That is why JW started with a kicking game plan in his first year.

  • Sharks worked on their defense for this game. It improved dramatically. Well played. The tackle count was massive.
    Their attack was a bit dismal, though. But if Lambie and JPP returns I’m sure that will change.

    Murray was crap at the Bulls a couple of years ago and he still doesn’t warrant Sharks selection either.
    Was still a close game and a rare 4 points in Durban you take anyway you can.
    PS. On a possitive note, at least it was a cardless game for both sides.

  • Lineouts – a throw back to the Plum era.
    Kicks at goal – a throw back to the Boks in ’96 (or was that ’97?)
    General kicking – Like playing soccer without goal posts

    Generally unable to put together an innings, can’t build pressure, can’t maintain pressure, apple-crumble under pressure.

    Now I’m hungry ;-)

  • Lost to a better drilled and resourced team. The names in the Bulls squad were huge and they delivered. But Fred and SP are not ready for this level…why isn’t Cameron Wright getting a look into.

  • Shame. I re-read comment #1 on this thread after the final whistle. Such misplaced optimism and faith. We all want to be optimistic. But we are truly awful. We are going to get resoundingly smashed on tour. Face it now.

    GOLD OUT.
