Super Rugby 2016: Sharks v Los Jaguares

Hola todos, y bienvenidos a Kings Park, Durban!

The Sharks are at home for the first time this season, having picked up a handy win against the out-gunned Kings in Round 1. While that outfit certainly didn’t boast much in terms of test experience (in fact, it boasted none whatsoever), this week’s foes, los Jaguares, are the proverbial “cat of a different coat” – assuming that George RR Martin was responsible for writing at least one of the proverbs. Every member of the Jaguares 23 boasts test experience, with 14 of them having played for Argentina against South African in the most recent Rugby World Cup third place play-off game.

Coming up against that sort of stat, the Sharks themselves appear rather underdone, with just eight test Springboks (six current) in their starting team and two more capped players on the bench. What’s more, it’s been a very long time indeed since Odwa Ndungane or Michael Claassens played Test rugby.

The Sharks are going to have to play out of their socks to roll this Jagaures outfit today. Let’s hope they can do it!

Kick-off in Durban is at 19h10 and it’s likely to be a hot and sticky evening.

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

Los Jaguares: 15 Santiago Cordero, 14 Matías Orlando, 13 Matías Moroni, 12 Santiago González Iglesias, 11 Emiliano Boffelli, 10 Nicolás Sánchez, 9, Martín Landajo, 8 Leonardo Senatore, 7 Rodrigo Báez, 6 Pablo Matera, 5 Matías Alemanno, 4 Guido Petti, 3 Ramiro Herrera, 2 Agustín Creevy (c), 1 Santiago García Botta
Bench: 16 Julián Montoya, 17 Felipe Arregui, 18 Nahuel Tetaz Chaparro, 19 Javier Ortega Desio, 20 Facunda Isa, 21 Gonzalo Bertranou, 22 Joaquín Paz, 23 Lucas Gonzaláz Amorosino

  • Well, when you put it like that the Cheetahs punched above their weight last week. The Sharks – taking into account all the accountables – simply need to dominate, take the lead and refuse to relinquish it. Simple in theory if more complex in practice.

  • If nothing changes for the Sharks the Jaguars will beat them tonight. Too many knock ons, no control, no sustained pressure. Get Claasens on. Reinach is having a mare. I’m sorry too but Odwa was also in a 14 point swing there. He’s too slow for a back 3.

  • The try to the Sharks from a maul and two to the Jaguares from turnover/loose play. Esterhuizen and Odwa looked off the pace and both du Preez’s butter-fingers. Why not get Esterhuizen to take kicks to sidelines? JP was lethargic and useless. Too much kicking, but especially by Joe.

  • Although Sithole spilled a ball on attack he was great on defence and his speed is an asset on the field. The twins just seem to keen to offload and in this humidity it just doesn’t work. Van den Walt showed great maturity and love him there for the close of the game. Claasens also screams class and him and Reinarch need to swap Jersey numbers.

    Good result by the sharks though. Lots of mistakes but still find a way to win against a very strong team. The atmosphere tonight had test match written all over it and couldn’t be more proud of the boys for grinding out that win.

  • @GreatSharksays (Comment 301) : @Hulk (Comment 300) : to be honest Cobus had a very poor game. Personally I’d go for vd Walt at 8 (to replace either of the twins) Claasens at 9 and Sithole and/or Mvovo to start in place of Odwa on the wing.

  • JPP looked disinterested. Slipped a couple of tackles too.

    The handling was ATROCIOUS by the Sharks in particular. The Jaguars didn’t seem to cough the ball up as much?

    I say continue to try and find the off loads though. The next thing the coaches will instruct the guys not to off load at all then we are back in 2015 predictaBull bash mode. Uh uh.

    Odwa is simply too slow, as much as I like him. A quicker wing could have scored that try that went begging when he was reined in from behind and may also have won the foot race to their try. A 14 point swing. We cannot afford that.

    Reinach was dreadful.

    I don’t think I saw Beast talk once?

    I missed last week’s game and the two warm ups in France, but that game tonight was a carbon copy of the Sharks 2015 so I’m a little disappointed. I feel we went into our shells a bit, trying to play “test match” rugby.

    4 points happily received though. Onwards, but the Stormers will be strong favourites next week now.

  • 73% to 27% possession in our favour!

    Almost 10 minutes playing against 13!

    Lets be honest and admit we should have done much better here.

    The positives:

    But hey it’s a win when MANY were tipping the Jaguars to win and beating a new team at home and setting a proud precedent is important for the union’s history.

  • @Kiss_the_Gold (Comment 304) : @Kiss_the_Gold (Comment 305) : think you’re spot on. Last weeks game (against weaker opposition) was a lot better. They took their chances and ground the Kings down before hammering them the second half. Tonight they (and at the time I agreed with the decisions) decided to go for tries and paid as they did not score and the Argies stayed in the game. Over all it was a poor game by most of the Sharks players but like you said it’s a win and now to take on the Stormers in Capetown.

  • The team definitely needs to be congratulated for pulling of this win. Those Jaguares are going to be a serious problem and I’m glad we played them now versus from round 4 onwards. Few personnel changes will be required to get us back to top play. Philip is a Bok in the making, let’s unleash him on the Stormers. Claasens is top quality, his consistency and experience is much needed. Mvovo is our go to man…if he is still injured then Sbura must start. Willing to give JPP another chance ahead of Odwa . When are guys like Keegan, Bothma and Pots ready? Jean Luc is getting through a lot of work.

  • It’s important to remember that we are a work in progress. We will also get better as the competition goes on. The coach implemented a test match type of gameplan which probably had an influence on our mental preparation hence the slow pace of the game and numerous handling errors. The Lions took a long time to get to where they are now…lots of trail and error until they decided that this is their gameplan, this is how they play and they are going to stick to it. We should fully stick to our new gameplan or at least stick to the tempo. We played a very slow game which played into the Jaguares’ hands. Good luck to the teams that still need to play those Jaguares. Well to our boys for the win.

  • Think all things considered,we played really well. As always,some players played better than others,but that’s rugby. You definitely can’t say we had a boring gameplan,there was a lot of good running rugby,but the handling let us down. They still mixed it up with some good running rugby,some good and bad kicking and some great defense till the end. We played against a great team and we got the 4 points,that’s still good for me for now

  • Ok my ten cents about last nights game: First of all, it was really slippery at the Tank, but that is no excuse for all of the handling errors. Beast will get better at being captain, I also think that being captain has revitalized him and brought out a new intensity in him. Last year the boys couldn’t break the line even if the paid for it, now they are breaking the line almost at will, but you can see that it is a team full of guys that have hardly played together as the instinctive trust of knowing that someone is on your shoulder only comes from playing together for a while. So all in all it was not too bad a game. Lourens proved that he is ten times the scrummager that Coenie is also.

  • My 2c. Scrum looked way better with Adriaanse and Cooper. Vd Walt should start ahead of young du preez who doesn’t seem to know how to take a tackle or hold onto a ball. Reinach look ok but Claasens would be my starter for now. Joe did well missed the line a few times though. Line outs were not good at all Cooper should start again. As for wing can we please leave Odwa on the bench. All your heart and experience counts for nothing if every player in the opposition backline can outrun you. JP does not want to give his best for sharks anymore let’s move on. How many more seasons before we learn?

  • Lineout throws were way too high and deep. No clean takes and jumpers had to work hard to gather. Only deep throws. I saw only one bit of creativity doing the short throw. That needs some work. Joe did some pretty aimless kicks badly timed and distance.

  • Well done to the boys for grinding out a win. Lots of mistakes but a win at home is vital. JP was useless. The other guys had to cover his line a lot. Odwa was exposed for lack of pace but he gave 150% commitment unlike JP. The twins struggled with the slippery ball in contact but showed great intensity in the match unlike some senior guys. Remember they are only 20 and will improve.

  • @sudhir (Comment 316) : I don’t think the twins were bad. But they need to learn how to take contact. They spill a lot no protecting the ball. Also they need to learn how to fall. They are big guys and it’s essential the control that else they will get injured too.

  • I like what the Du Preezs’ try to do in keeping the ball alive. We need this to continue. It’s so much harder to defend against. The risk now, after a game like this, is a coach like Gold who panics and regresses will tell these kids to go to ground and secure possession. The Kiwis love it when we do this. It’s the one area of his game a player like Marcell Coetzee can really improve on. Think Kieran Read…

  • @coolfusion (Comment 314) : I agree that JP seems disinterested in playing for the Sharks. Rather put a player there who gives a rip…what about Johan Deysel? Tons of hunger. I would prefer to give that young hooker the start again and have Cooper in reserve to bring experience to a more critical stage of the game. If only because Cooper has been there many times before when the pressure mounts in the last 20 minutes. Marais is still a green-horn but from what i saw I had no complaints. I remember Hyron Andrews stealing a line-out after he came on. He’s looking good. I also agree that Reinach didn’t have his best game. I would have Claassens start with his composure and sense of timing and bring Reinach on later to mix things up.

  • It seems clear that the heavy emphasis on kicking was an imperative by the brains trust, but what worries me is, if the Sharks have a few bad games in a row then all creativity and playing what’s in front of them may disappear in favor of bashing and phases and penalty goals, and the constant kicking with no chasers to put any pressure on the opposition. That was the essence of Jake-ball. Kick & chase, kick & chase, get turnover and run in a try. It doesn’t work if you can’t put pressure on the opposition receiving the ball.

    On saying that I think our coaches must see this new more expansive game plan as the style we need to play and will persist with it.

  • @Kiss_the_Gold (Comment 325) : @Hulk (Comment 326) : think the big problem was Sharks tried to “entertain” without doing the basics first. Firt put presure on your opponents by playing smart tactical rugby, then take the points that’s available by penalty goal kicks. Scoreboard and defensive presure was what made the difference in the first game and that did not happen last night.
    All of that said i don’t think the 2015 Sharks would have won the game last night so well done to the current team for winning a very hard and difficult game!

  • Some people are hard to please,we beat the team that beat the Boks last August and knocked Ireland out the World Cup.
    We dominated that team for most of the game,but the Argies never lay down,their trys were opportunistic and aginst the run of play.
    This is a great Sharks team,and there were very encouraging sign s on the field,Lewies looked great and lasted the game well.
    The twins split a few balls but they made up for it with their work rate and raw power.It is easy to forget that these guys are only 20.
    Although this was not a great game it was a great win.
    So nice to walk away from K.P with a warm feeling again.
    Lets hope that Gold doesn’t start to panic and tamper with this team.

  • The twins are a huge asset and I don’t feel the need to bench Dan because of some handling errors. They both need to work on their decision making regarding when to off load and when to go to ground but will take attempted off loads over none at all, any day of the week. Durbans humidity will subside and then those passes should be easier to hold on to.

    This was a very good Jaguars side that have been in S.A for 5 weeks.
    We never were pressed by them and had them on the blackfoot from the first kick of the game,

  • @The hound (Comment 336) : no disrespect meant to the Argies as I do rate them as a very talented side but in all honesty currently they’re not a champion side. They still have a lot to learn and adapt to. Four yellow cards and a suspension in only two weeks is hardly champion material. They were very lucky that neither the Sharks or Cheetahs did not really nailed them for it as that’s what should have happened and will happen if they carry on with their poor discipline. Fact is regardless of the dew and other factors the Sharks should have finished more of their chances.

  • Genuinely interested to know how Argentina are a “champion side”? What have they won? I think we should cool our jets until we see how they go against the NZ sides. That will be a true litmus test of just how champion they are.

    I think any team, even against a NZ team, if you have 73% of the ball and most of the territory AND play against 13 for 10 minutes, it really should be a lot easier. Let’s not lose sight of the fact that the Sharks looked poor and disjointed on the night, and frankly very nervous and that’s taking nothing away from the Argie Bargies.

  • @Kiss_the_Gold (Comment 340) : I must agree. Also doing sort of ok against a floundering bok side does not make a champion either. I have no argument against the statement that we dominated. My concern is the lack of finishing. You can dominate all you like if you don’t convert it to points it’s remains just another empty statistic.

  • @coolfusion (Comment 341) : This was almost same team that beat the Boks less than year ago and beat Ireland in the world cup. I ‘d say semi finals at the World Cup sort of qualifies you as a champion side.They have been in South Africa for 5 weeks and are totally acclimatised,longer than they spent in the U.K for the World Cup.
    Did we or didn’t we win this game,so I would say we did convert the dominance to points.
    We have a very young side,and as long as they are winning,I am not going to nit pick them.
    We miss Patrick,and should stick with Claassens,Thomas and Botha to return,there is so much hope for this team.

Personally I think the problem was they showed show much promise that during the game the believe shifted from only winning the game to beat them with a bonus point and that did not happen so we as supporters were left wanting more.
