  • The ref tells the Sharks it’s halftime…they just stab it into touch 5 metres from their own line…then he says it’s not halftime and says the lineout must take place…then the lineout forms and everybody waits…before Bismarck takes a quick throw…and the ref allows that to go on…oh my word!!

  • The studio is VERY critical of the ref…which is fair enough, because since the 20th minute he has just totally lost it. Comments about the ref in studio:
    - “confusing”
    - “hard done by”
    - “50-50 calls to the home team”
    - “his calls are hurting the Shark”
    - “inconsistency of the ref is building frustration”
    Look, all of that doesn’t excuse our plethora of mistakes…but flip…where do they find these guys?!

  • The last 15 minutes all the calls went their way. That butterball was not on his feet when the tahs got the penalty in the last 5; the Sharks in their 22 and tahs offsides, no advantage to the Sharks; if the tahs 2nd to last try was given (the grounding was unseen), then Sithole’s try was legit…the sideline referees and tmo were not interested in the least in reporting any waratahs misbehaviours. Will anything happen to the referees? of course not

  • @robdylan (Comment 150) : There was a number of instances (e.g. Ashley Cooper getting away on his goal line) where one player chased like mad (Cronje in that case), and the rest just jogged slowly after the chaser. In each case the Tahs managed to get themselves out of a tough situation, and then proceeded to run through a number of poor tackles on top of it.

  • Despite what happened to the Sharks yesterday, I thought we scored some really excellent tries; with Ndungane’s sneaky grubber pick-up one of the better tries I’ve seen from the Sharks in years.
    Lionel Cronje had some deft touches in all of our scores but ultimately his inconsistency let him down and pretty much summed up the Sharks season.

  • There was a moment in the game that summed up the whole season for me,a single camera shot into our coaches box.Front and centre and in obvious charge, Brendan Venter and Horak.
    You could feel the neurosis in that box.really unhappy place.
    There was a moment in one of the New Zealand games where a young guy tried something and it nearly came off but he cocked it up.He came out of it smiling,and the commentator said,thats the smile of a guy who knows he nearly got it right.
    Contrast that to the sorry state of our team,Cronje created two brilliant tries,but most of the guys here and ,the fans and I am sure the coaches only remember the mistake he made at the end of the game.
    I really hope Venter ups sticks and goes and takes Horak and all his Saracens over the hill mates with him

  • @The hound (Comment 189) : is anyone really blaming Lionel for that try? Hell, I don’t…. it would be ridiculously unfair to do so.

    No, I’ll stick my hand up and admit I’ve perhaps been unfairly harsh on Lionel. He was pretty good in Wellington and close to brilliant in Sydney.

  • @robdylan (Comment 190) : Rob merely trying to illustrate the toxic environment that the Sharks are playing in.
    I feel we played really well against the log leaders and the current champs in consecutive weeks.
    We hardly disgraced ourselves in both games,very few teams and no South African team will win those two games in consecutive weeks away from home.
    In both games we were in it for most of the game,had perfectly good try disallowed and played against embarrassing referees.
    We scored some amazing tries,for which no credit is given,but guys here are only concerned to harp on at the defensive errors we made.

  • @robdylan (Comment 190) : Lionel seems to be one of the few players who has not yet had all the exuberance and enterprise coached out of him yet; I’ve really enjoyed what he’s been bringing to the team.

    On a related topic, is it just me, or has the move from right wing to left really rejuvenated Sbura?

  • @The hound (Comment 189) :
    Not Horaks fault that the Sharks have suddenly been overcome with an embarrassing inability to tackle properly.
    You can have all the correct defensive lines and strategies in place but nothing will help JP forget to put his arms around a person and hang on when he is supposed to tackle them.

    Not that I blame JP, he is being asked to play a position that is VERY difficult to defend and takes years to master.
    How they keep playing him there is beyond me. He had 1 good game there against the Stormers years ago and now they thing he is a 13?!
    Boggling.

  • @robdylan (Comment 190) : I’ll always back a player who tries something as opposed to a player who takes no risks. Thought Lionel has some great touches. Pity about the fumble at the end, but at that stage the wind was out of our sails anyway…

  • Nice little screenshot of the lead-up to the Waratahs first ‘try’, with even the commentator asking “Is that obstruction?”…

    As you can see the two waratahs players are in contact with each other which makes it accidental obstruction and offsides anyway….

    Terrible officiating from the ref, the touch judge and ultimately the TV ref.

  • @John Galt (Comment 193) : Tanna Umanga started as wing so did Ma Nonnu.
    I think they both moved inside once they lost a little of their pace.
    The thinking with JPP would be the same.
    He is an enigma,however,always marched to his own drum.When people say he can’t tackle,I immediately think about that match saving tackle in the the WC game against Fiji.
    Hell he was only 21 then and that tackle as much as anything won us that cup.
    I just think he is another victim of the toxic neurotic atmosphere in the camp.
    Guys lay their bodies on the line when they believe in the cause.

  • We can blame whoever e like and keep making excuses but excuses only get you so far and dont win you the next game. Nothing can be done about the Tahs game…what can be done is how do we get a win vs the Reds? Our inside man is not working hard enough leaving huge gaps on defense. We still spill the ball to much in the tackle and get dominated physically. So forget blaming the ref etc etc..anyone of the coaching staff got some of those solutions things that actually win you games?

  • So according to Keohane 6 consecutive losses equals the “franchise record” for the Sharks.

    Wow. That’s how bad this season has been.

    And with a game in Brisbane to come the odds are good that Gold and his merry bunch of joker assistants will take us to a new record of consecutive defeats.

    If this new low does not set in motion action (read getting rid of the rot) by the management board then how much lower do we need to fall?
