Lambie’s shoulder a concern


Written by Rob Otto (robdylan)

The Sharks have revealed that captain Pat Lambie suffered a suspected AC joint injury in the first half of last night’s win over Toulon at the Stade Mayol.

No further information is forthcoming at this time, save that Lambie will need further scans and that more news about the severity of the injury and rehabilitation period will be announced in due course.

All we can really do now is send Pat all our good wishes and prayer in the hope that the injury is not as serious as we fear. Also, spare a thought for Francois Kleinhans, who also went off with an arm or shoulder injury in the first half.

More as we get it, as always.

  • @robdylan (Comment 3) : Well they did mention the Ac specifically, so if they are correct then you can use those time frames as a guide. Better than a clav break or re-tearing his bicep. As long ad it’s not a grade 3.

  • this is not ideal at all

    the thing is lambie is th full package at FH, young, talented, able bodied, experienced

    the next best option at FH is joe (IMHO), his older, not as athletic, some what limited at this stage of his career, but still a very good option to have

    then theres Inny whose like a young lambie,tons of potential, but we cant expect him to perform at a high level consistently, or atleast i mean we can play him but at this young age when he does make a mistake (which all players will) it would be a bad idea to throw him under the bus, which is popular in SA. Fresh face appears on the scene, has a few good games, we all praise him as being the next big thing, and then when he loses form or get injured cause he was exposed too soon (or no one told him to rather not tackle sam whitelock) everyone talking about him like he was never really that great/good. We need to nurture talent, work on their weaknesses, bring them along, this sink or swim mentality isnt getting us anywhere.

    We need to mimic NZ way of nuturing young talent, communicate with them, give them confidence, explain the plan, work on weaknesses etc

    the other option for us at FH are willie: this could work, lets see, his definitely talented

    or G April: havent seen enough of him to have a strong opinion, could be a option

  • Why would we want to play Willie at 10,he is the best 15 in the country,we bought him to play there.
    Only reason I’d play him at 10 is if he was the best 10 in the country which he definitely is not.
    It like Frans Steyn all over again,lets not go down that road,hope to hell sanity prevails and we handle this wonderful talent properly.

  • @The hound (Comment 24) : percy was the best 15 in the country and did not mind playing at 10 for the sharks.and he was moved from centre to fullback.johan heunis is another example of 15 playing 10.carel du plessis was selected on the ’81 nz tour as bok centre,but who knows that he was not always a wing?michael du plessis was bok centre who also played 10 for wp.and ep.jpp started as a 15,became a bok wing,and just ended the japanese league playing at 13.not saying let’s play willie at 10 and joe at 15.saying let’s see how willie goes at 10.

  • options options

    my two cents

    depth chart at 10 should be
    lambie
    joe
    inny

    and then and only then if all three of those guys cant play

    willie or April

    my preference if for willie to stay at fb or wing and play like he did at the cheetahs, meaning: playing in the back three but taking the ball at first receiver just over 40% of the time, keep the other team guessing

    thats my idea, maybe willie would make a awesome FH who knows, playing him there in a friendly couldnt hurt, atleast we have options

    still sucks that lambies hurt, hopefully not for long

  • @50shadesofshark (Comment 27) : I’m pretty sure we are going to use willie at 15 and then on attack have Joe to one side of the ruck and willie the other to create more options. But Joe at 10 for set moves.

  • I will never understand the Sharks supporters mentality of always wanting to move around back line players, save for one to two center/wings there is no one in the backline who should be played out of position.

    Sure let’s take the best player at 15 in the country and play him at 10, where we are no short on depth at all, just for fun…. The mind boggles.

  • @Seth101 (Comment 31) : Also doesn’t make sense to me. We buy Willie who happens to the Bok incumbent, we get some guys thinking we should then move him 10 when we have a number of guys that can do the job at 10. Don’t want to get into this debate though. Still praying that this injury will only keep him out for 6 weeks. Want the full team when we play the Bulls in Pretoria….our 4th game I think.

  • @GreatSharksays (Comment 42) : for a moment play this scenario in your head:either one of joe or lambie is not available.the one who plays gets injured.would you not like to know beforehand which one of april or willie will be the better option at 10?do you think there will be place for both april and inny/another specialist flyhalf on the bench(inny is not part of the squad and lionel cronje has been told he is no longer needed .who are your other options who can do the job at 10?).everyone keeps mentioning how long this sr season is and the travelling.should we not play every possible scenario out in our heads and look for possible solutions to them?this is why imo to give willie a run at 10 would be a good move.it is thinking of a match situation that might exist,and having a look at the options.this is not saying make willie the sharks new 10.think ahead and problem solve now,rather than look around in bewilderment.this is why I said april must also be given a run at 10.and we need to play odwa at 15 at some stage vs toulouse.

  • @50shadesofshark (Comment 43) : I am somewhat in agreement. We need to use our options and not get caught in convention the amount of injuries we had last year forced us to disregard convention several times and play guys out of regular position. But why are we talking Willie at 10 when Joe is the better and more comfortable option at 10? I just don’t think I would trust Willie to distribute as well as Joe. Willie tries to save the day when he is under pressure and it very often results in failure. That could be fatal at 10.

  • @coolfusion (Comment 53) : I think what 50shadesofshark is trying to say is:
    1. Lambie is injured. Inny is injured.
    2. Joe is clearly the first choice replacement – we all know that.
    3. If Joe had to be injured, then maybe April would be next in line…but we’d also be in really big trouble.
    4. Because all of the above, it might be a good idea to use a warm-up game to give Willie some time at 10 to see IF he is an option there in case we need it.
    I think that’s all he’s saying and I have no problem with that. Of course, I hope to goodness that Joe doesn’t get injured too!

  • @Seth101 (Comment 1) : My initial suspicion on watching his reaction is a grade 2 tear..but depends how the AC joint dislocated. My educated guess would be 4-6 weeks out. With LeRoux and Coetzee back in the mix the Sharks should get some more direction. Pieterson will play 10 with Willie at 15. I was impressed with both sets of centres and adding JPP into that mix will also give us some good direction. As for Odwa…i can see the brain still working but the legs arent and im afraid its time to tell him thanks very much but he needs to move 1 side down.

  • @The hound (Comment 66) : On attack he will be fine. On defense he will struggle, judging by his performance for the Impi. And if you struggling on defense it could hamper his attacking game. He is a definite talent…but needs some serious conditioning to play senior rugby. Id love to see April run at 10 not 15 but seems the Sharks have designated that he will only play 15. Pieterson is ok at 10 but he plays 10 like a 15-which is his natural and best position.

  • This comment section is criminally under rating Inny, he is injured, not out of the picture. What possible reason would there be for Curwin to leepfrog Inny? He may be very talented but I’d argue he is not better, he’s younger, less experienced, less developed…..
    Honestly I would pick Inny even over Willie at 10, just because he is an out and out 10.
    I struggle to see the logic in some arguments here, play players in position and give very talented youngsters a go.

  • @Seth101 (Comment 71) : My comment was
    ” I personally would be keen to see what Curwell Bosch could do at a higher level.’
    Pollard was a Bok at his age.Lambie was a Shark at his age, if you are good enough you are old enough,
    I would hate to see this guy turn out for W.P come the Currie Cup,because we never gave him a look in.

  • @Seth101 (Comment 71) : for how long is Inny still out? Think most of the guys are just talking about players that will be ready to play tomorrow and are not considering injured players.

  • @The hound (Comment 72) : I’m sure Bosch will play for the Currie cup side once the Varsity shield is done.

  • @Seth101 (Comment 71) : I agree with you that Inny should be well ahead of Bosch. Not sure how long he is going to be out injured though?

  • @The hound (Comment 72) : Pat made his Sharks debut at 20, Same age for Pollard becoming a Bok.
    Bosch is U19, I don’t know if he is even 19 yet?

    Your logic is if we don’t throw him into SuperRugby within his first year with us (as a junior), he will leave his HUGE money contract within the first few months?

    Yea I think I will leave that debate there thanks :lol:

  • @The hound (Comment 72) : If Bosch…an 18yr old who cannot tackle wants to leave because he isnt playing Super rugby yet ,then to be honest he should pack up already. If he wants a spot he must earn it.

  • @SheldonK (Comment 68) : Didnt see the Impi game but last years Craven week comes to mind with your attack and defence comments. I wouldnt risk Bosch in the higher leagues at this stage.

  • @SheldonK (Comment 77) : Seems I ‘ve heard this before on these pages,weren’t the twins too young to play Super rugby last year at 19,wasn’t Thomas too young to play a full Barbarians game at prop.
    If you good enough you are old enough.

  • @The hound (Comment 83) : Its nothing to do with age. Its whether you can physically do it. The twins could have played…they were held back by dad till they were mature enough to handle it. Thomas isnt built like 18/19yr old props..so yes he could handle it. Bosch is very slight of frame…he struggles on defense. So on attack yes he will be fine. But its defense where he would struggle and very possibly get injured. So yes when he is ‘physically old enough’ then by all means let him play…if he deserves a spot.

  • @Salmonoid the Subtle (Comment 82) : I wouldnt say i watched the Impi game taking stats by he was good on attack but did miss a few tackles, especially if they arent front on ones. If you keep missing tackles it does distract from the rest of your game. He will come good no doubt…just give him time to get physically ready. Case in point- look at Radebe when he started at the Sharks to how he is now physically…different people

  • @The hound (Comment 83) : sorry to say but although Bosch is very talented I really don’t think he’s ready for Super rugby. What I saw of the Varsity game he struggled a bit to get up to speed with the play. I would use him in the Varsity Shield and Currie cup and see if he’s physically ready for Super rugby next year. As for Frans, the twins and Thomas all of them are/were huge and physically ready to play against the big boys and Pat started at 15. There is currently enough cover at 10 so why take a chance with such a talent, give him time to mature!

  • @50shadesofshark (Comment 87) : :lol: Sure…! The triathlon was really enjoyable! I spent a few years working so much that I didn’t get to any exercise or active sport. I’m still helluva busy but have now started to just make time to do something active…and I’m enjoying the hell out of it. :mrgreen:
