Super Rugby 2016: Southern Kings v Sharks


Written by Rob Otto (robdylan)

It’s the first game of the new season for Gary Gold and his Sharks team.

Deon Davids has had his share of challenges in the build-up, but has managed to assemble a competitive enough outfit, who will want to repeat the Kings’ unique feat of winning their first Super Rugby game when they last played in 2013. The Kings will relish the underdog tag going into this game and will probably look to unsettle the Sharks; in Steven Sykes, Chris Cloete and Jacques Engelbrecht they certainly have the men to cause hassles up front, while the front row also looks ready to compete at scrum time.

Gold will have stressed the message of “no complacency” to the Sharks this week and one feels that their own attitude coming into this game is the only thing really limiting what they can achieve. Should they approach the encounter with the same fire and hunger that they showed on their recent trip to France, it’s hard to imagine any result other than a comfortable Sharks win.

The Sharks are a strange team, though and a big part of the “2016 redemption challenge” will be showing that they can be focused enough to remove the Mr Hyde aspects to their performances this season. The fans, battered and bruised after an awful 2015 campaign, aren’t expecting a perfect performance but are within their rights to demand a significant improvement in the performance level: commitment, attitude and defence are three key areas in which this Sharks team needs to show the progress they have made.

Kick-off at Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium is at 3pm SA time.

Kings: 15 Jurgen Visser, 14 Luzuko Vulindlu, 13 JP du Plessis, 12 Shane Gates, 11 Malcolm Jaer, 10 Elgar Watts, 9 Ntando Kebe, 8 Jacques Engelbrecht, 7 Thembelani Bholi, 6 Chris Cloete, 5 JC Astle, 4 Steven Sykes (c), 3 Tom Botha, 2 Martin Ferreira, 1 Schalk Ferreira
Bench: 16 Edgar Marutlulle, 17 Sti Sithole, 18 Louis Albertse, 19 Schalk Oelofse, 20 Cyril-John Velleman, 21 Leighton Eksteen, 22 Louis Fouche, 23 Charles Radebe

Sharks: 15. Willie le Roux, 14. Odwa Ndungane, 13. Paul Jordaan, 12. Andre Esterhuizen, 11. Lwazi Mvovo, 10. Joe Pietersen, 9. Cobus Reinach, 8. Daniel du Preez, 7. Jean-Luc du Preez, 6. Marcell Coetzee, 5. Hyron Andrews, 4. Etienne Oosthuizen, 3. Coenie Oosthuizen, 2. Franco Marais, 1. Tendai Mtawarira (c)
Bench: 16. Kyle Cooper, 17. Juan Schoeman, 18. Lourens Adriaanse, 19. Dave McDuling, 20. Philip van der Walt, 21. Michael Claassens, 22. Garth April, 23. S’bura Sithole

  • Its almost too tempting to think what it might be like looking back and commenting about how awesome the Sharks were in gutting the Kings. I get worried because pre-season means a bucket of warm spit and now is when it counts and the Sharks players may have dark thoughts and memories of the 2015 annus horribilis. Still, I shall try to be quietly confident in the players and their unity as a team and the preparation of the coaches. It is almost a given that the Kings will try to provoke the Sharks players into displaying their lesser person, and I think we are all hoping that the lads are squeaky clean and in a mood to bloody the water – within the limits and laws of the game of course.

  • Sharks struggled to get going in the first half due to mistakes and struggling to come to grips with the refs interpretation. Much better second half on attack. Need to put a lot more work into the line out and kickoff. We will be up against much better locks than Sykes and Astle in the coming games.

  • That 2nd half was fantastic. Thought Reinarch was electric, van den Walt added something special when he came on and our back 3 were constantly looking for work. Say what you want about Odwa but he still finds himself on the score sheet. Andrews hands are a worry and Coenies scrumaging is a worry. At the end of the day I’m very pleased with that performance, it was very mature.

  • @vanmartin (Comment 127) : that’s how refs blow that at the breakdown.perhaps need to look at technique in the tackle so as not to go over to opponents side of ruck in the tackle?

  • @benji (Comment 136) : Cloete played a massive game and still cant believe the Stormers let him go. Our loosies probably made more offloads this game than total 2015.

    Kings pack was not bad at all but nothing behind them. Their halfbacks are old Vodacom level at best.

  • @benji (Comment 130) : previous time Kings played the entire community was behind them and a few shrewd purchases game made them competitive.

    yesterday the few of us that went (in our full Sharks kit) agreed that it is such a shame as the day was enjoyable and experience getting too and from stadium was a breeze. The facilities are truely great but one idiot has ensured that the whole community has turned their backs on the team. Watson is like a cancer and it is clear that he will use any means necessary to stay in power. Only once he leaves will sentiment change. This Kings side will be competing with Rabble and Farce for worst side

  • @robdylan (Comment 139) : certainly but tough being plucked from Voda level into SR. Watts was major disapointment as he had quite a few good games at Cheetahs. Fouche is massive and Du Plessis is same as always – strength and speed but no hands.

    Cudos to Willie for standing up in defence as well.
