  • Well, I trust the ‘impartiality’ of Angus Gardner far more than Jaco Peyper or Craig Joubert. Like 30 minutes to kick off and my heart’s going so fast I feel like I need some ‘phiskey en pater’ (that phiskey en pater clip on youtube :grin: ; humour takes away some of the pain)

  • Highlanders finding gaps with ease. Sharks kicking pretty much everything away, what they don’t is turned over in a few phases. This looks like the usual tripe. Why kick so much away when they are so dangerous with ball in hand (and our defence so weak)?

    But the signs are not good for the Sharks. We can’t defend again this team, last year and this year.

  • I’ve never switched off a Sharks game ever and I’m a little ashamed to do it now, but I have no interest in watching this team play and bring shame to the Sharks reputation. I will hope for the best when I check the result later but I have seen nothing in that first half to suggest that we are playing the game in a spirit required to win. I just hope we don’t slip 50 points again. Later.

  • Our players can not be this bad…

    How can players that used to win us games, suddenly turn into such utter crap?

    I’m done blaming the players…they’re out there looking like idiots whilst the coaches and management are hidden from public scrutiny.

  • Sorry to say, but some on Sharksworld were quick to tell me how crap the Cheetahs are, and they are right. That said…..People in fragile glass houses shouldn’t throw stones!!
    The Sharks with way more talent and depth are dour and equally crap.
    Sorry for the Sharks fans, because I get the frustration. At least the Cheetahs get smashed, trying to play a bit of attacking rugby.

  • I really don’t understand the Sharks. The only player that has the ability to create something is Lionel Cronje yet he spends all of his time on the bench when we have a serious problem of no creativity. Instead we go for simple no value adding Fred.

  • If Sean has such a big hard one for Fred, then move Lionel to 12 cause Andre is also not going to set the field alight unless we are deliberate in our actions and involve him in the moves. For that to work though, a creative flyhalf is needed to get the best of Andre.

  • Pathetic. I demand action. I demand that someone (preferably some people) are made accountable for this humiliating scoreline.

    To have 50 put past us by 2 NZ teams in the same season (all it needed was a conversion by the Highlanders) is an absolute joke for a powerhouse union like the Sharks.

  • Bismarck brought nothing to the game unfortunately: 4/10
    Beast at least made an effort: 6/10
    Lourens Adriaanse looked stale and off his game: 4/10
    Lewies looked a little off pace (surprised he started): 4.5/10
    Captain Wentzel, am I unkind in giving him: 3.5/10 (no talking to the ref that I saw)
    The only decent play was from the loose forwards: 7/10
    Reinach was fast but without much effect: 4/10
    Zeilinga had a mare: 3/10
    Centres: 2/10, shocking
    Odwa: 3/10, let in 2 tries at least
    Wings: 4/10
    Bench: 4/10, except for Cronje who I give a 5/10

  • Now I can watch the ozzie derby with better quality rugby. At the rate the Sharks are going they may not win another game this season because the Reds are probably going to pull it together against the Sharks, the Rebels are no pushovers anymore, and why would we expect the striped underpants to be afraid of the Sharks? even in the tank? (some fortress that has proved to be: cheetahs, crusaders and bulls beat them there)

  • High school, age group and Vodacom Cup coaches learning their trade at our expense. Thanks to a wet behind the ears CEO whom does not have the balls to make the hard calls today. Fire Horak, BMH, Anthony and Everitt immediately after the last game of the season. Let Gold bring in his own coaching team. Jake must be out of breath with all the laughing. He told these guys what the problem was, tried to install some discipline into the team, and these guys turned against him. They just wanted to remain mediocre. They clearly don’t understand how much work needs to be put in to be able to compete at this level. Even our recruitment sucks…when are we going to recruit play makers and game breakers?
