Fans, patience is going to be required for the next few days, please.

As most of you know by now, my job doesn’t require frequent travel, but when it does require travel, that tend to happen at pretty short notice. I’m about to embark on just such a trip, heading to the charming southern US city of Atlanta tomorrow, for a few days.

Articles will be slower than normal next week – please bear with me as I do my best to keep you all (or y’all, to use Atalanta-speak) updated, despite the change in time zone and requirement o do lots of work too.

Thanks for all your support, as always, and glory to the Sharks!

  • Safe trip, dont make a detour via Waco, Texas and if you do change the name of that town immediately, generations to come will thank you.

  • Montpellier are set to announce the signatures of the du Plessis brothers this week as they look to recover from a disappointing season.

    Saturday’s defeat to Stade Français ended Montpellier’s hopes of reaching the Top 14 play-offs, and they need a bonus-point win over Clermont next week to have any hope of making the Champions Cup play-offs.

    As a result Jake White has embarked on an ambitious recruitment drive, with the Sharks pair Bismarck and Jannie du Plessis on their way according to RMC.

    Personally I cant wait for them to go.
    Their season with the Sharks is over and Jannie in particular wont be missed.

    Hope Jake takes Odwa, Waylon and a few others as well.

  • @John Galt (Comment 15) : Dismal here in CT as well John…..the loss of so many players overseas has seen the local franchises, and superrugby as a whole, suffer from a quality perspective. And sadly it is only going to get worse….

  • It will be good when we eventually have a clear out of the “manne”. Let’s face facts, having a vaunted “all Springbok frontrow” and the other egos has never won us this competition. The mix of individuals is wrong.

  • @Feather (Comment 18) : Maybe not, but I think they have made us at least competitive in the scrums and many a time dominant. Love him or hate him, our scrum is not the same without Bismarck and to a lesser extent Jannie.

  • @Salmonoid the Subtle (Comment 19) : And until we can teach our other hookers to throw in properly (at least most of the time) we will also miss Bismarck at line out time.

  • Say what you want, imply what you want, but the Sharks are a bunch of individuals. Until the mix is correct we will never win anything. In the same bracket are Kanko, JP, Steyn…

    Read the article by Mallett on sports24 about how NZ coaches differ to their SA counterparts.

  • @StevieS (Comment 32) : Although his comments focus more on the fact that Kiwi teams practices put more emphasis on match day situations as opposed to drilling pre-planned moves as SA teams do.

    Worth a read and makes sense when you look at how the NZ teams play.
