  • @FireTheLooser (Comment 5) : ok so we might see all 28 players vs toulon.perhaps even an almost new team for the 2nd half?the win will be good,but it is about game time for the players and getting the training field practice right in a match situation.

  • Great defence on half-time, keeping them out and defending them all the way back to the 22, and then straling the ball. Pity there was a knock. Half-time.

  • Game over, 29-21. Great commitment from all the players, which is a big positive. Some good inventive play. Things broke up a bit after Lambie went off. We really need him. Not too worried about a few things to work on. For a firstbgame of the season, this Sharks supporter is very happy.

  • Before the accusations of “you’re reading too much into this game start coming in” let me explain our collective excitement with “we were looking for signs of improvement and we saw them fairly consistently tonight”. The rest is really just gravy for a rugby-starved audience. When Sharks fan get enthusiastic about defense in spite of tries being scored you know it’s been a good night of rugby.

  • Best backs:
    - Reinach was very good…there was the odd poor pass, but generally his service was good, his kicking accurate and his danger factor always present…
    - Joe was very solid…when he came to flyhalf he got into the game much more and that one break was a thing of beauty…kicking at posts needs some work…
    - aaaaand…Esterhuizen actually…he was good on defence, strong in his carries, his distribution was solid and that offload in the tackle to set up the first try was great.

  • @pastorshark (Comment 457) : Despite that yellow Esterhuizen was pivotal at times of robbing Toulon of their attacking momentum. Think this was the first time ever I’ve seen him properly step up at flank.

    @pastorshark (Comment 465) : Esterhuizen not trying to steamroll the closest player but waiting the splitsecond for the half-gap to open must surely mean someone is actually bothering to properly coach backline play. Same goes for Reinach’s passing from the base. Can’t remeber when last I saw that. I found it quite novel that Lambie got to decide to change direction leading up to the second try. A 10 in charge, how peculiar :)

  • Did you guys also notice how much variety Andre brought? Off loading in the tackle, doing the SBW, getting his arms through the tackle etc…Robert du Preez is a magician. Why didn’t we bring him on board sooner. Let’s extend his contract with immediate. Him, defence and conditioning guy. I want them to be the core of our coaching team from the next decade. Most of the headaches I had were addressed. Concern is now at tighthead prop.

Yesterday created a very good impression of our coaching team! Like you say: Attack (Rob), Defence (Mouneimne) and conditioning (that ex-Kings fellow) looked really good. I thought Esterhuizen was excellent in all the areas you mentioned…plus defence. Tighthead is a concern…there were good moments by Coenie, but also plenty problems. I reckon the fact that he has played so little in the last year contributes and he will get better…but it is a concern.

  • Good signs in general. At least the Sharks showing the intent to make something of every opportunity that comes their way. Some good handling, running lines and support play on attack. Apart from struggling to defend mauls close to the line, real aggressive intent on defence as well. The du Preez twins will definitely still go far, and I liked what I saw from our centres.

    Tighthead and hooker still a major worry. At least Cooper looks better than last year, but he lost his way towards the end of his stint. Marais had a mare at lineout time.

    Good that Toulon tested us with lineout mauls, as we still have a lot of work to do on maul defence. With the new changes to the laws on penalties after the whistle, this will become even more important.

    I really hope Pat’s injury is not too serious.

  • Botha made such a difference to the line outs great buy. Oosthuizen is not the answer at lock or at flank.Thought Jordan and Esterhuzen looked very promising,also enjoyedJoe ‘s play.
    Rein arch terrifies me,wish Gold had given Ungerer a longer run with Lambie.We are going to miss Pat,April and Reinarch are a dodgy combination.
    Connie’s not the answer,nor are either of the Hookers.Does anyone know where Burden is,I thought he was with Toulon,if so why didn’t he play.

  • @pastorshark (Comment 529) : don’t think the stormers will loan him to the sharks.best to wait till his contract expires.should be end of this year?frans van wyk is another young thighthead prop stuck in the que at the stormers.represented baby bok in 2015.turns 21 this year.1.89/1.90m 125/128kg.but I don’t think the stormers will agree to loan him to the sharks either.

  • @pastorshark (Comment 529) : imo the sharks should have a look around the clubs in france and see if there is perhaps a way to do a quick loan(or player exchange)for a tighthead prop .sure there can be some good scrummaging props found in even the french 2nd division.perhaps even one who can play tighthead prop/hooker.

  • I’ll try and get a write-up done sometime tomorrow, but in some other pre-season news:
    1. Waratahs beat Brumbies will 21-17 with a try at the death.
    2. Crusaders thumped the Reds 31-3.
    3. Racing beat the Highlanders in a try fest 45-38.
    4. The Cheetahs beat the Bulls in a great result for them 28-10.
    5. The Lions played two teams, thumping the Falcons 62-17 and the Leopards 103-0.
    Some interesting results…
