  • @Dunx (Comment 1) : Can you imagine the Lions getting 3 from 3?

    The loyal Lions fans are certainly being rewarded now – I wonder how many of their turncoat supporters have crawled back, after abandoning them for the bulls.

  • The good news is:

    Matthew Pierce, Owen Nkumane and Robbie Kempson are in Singapore – so they won’t be doing the Sharks game. Toks is in studio, so Afrikaans will be spared his bias.

    Will Bobby be doing the Kings game? I sure hope so.

    Genius by SANZAAR though. Add a 6th SA team to make the other new teams competitive.

    Drop the Kings out the competition and add another team from another country.

  • @FireTheLooser (Comment 91) : both these teams are in the other “Africa” conference so it doesn’t really matter. Arguably it would have been better for the Sunwolves to win, because the Cheetahs have a better prospect of winning more games than them, but all the Sharks need to do is finish in 1st place in their conference or make sure they are the highest placed “next best” (wild card) team across both African conferences. I’d be very surprised if by the end of the competition the Cheetahs or Wolves are competing for this sole wild card place.

  • So for example, it was actually quite good for the Sharks today that the Lions lost. Because the Lions are in “Africa 2″, our conference.

    Provided the Sharks finish top of this conference it’s all good.

  • @Kiss_the_Gold (Comment 132) : The All Blacks are a team that does look to express itself, relying heavily on offensive systems to co-ordinate their game, but coach Graham Henry and senior players consistently preach to the team – worry about the first task, and stick to the patterns.

    Henry does like his All Blacks to react to what they see, but one only has to glance as the training sessions to see how regimented they can be.

    While Wallabies coach Robbie Deans has long lived by his first coaching ethos of ‘playing what is in front of you’, but equally his sides have often been clinical with their patterns of play.

    Carter, talking to the Dominion Post, said that the coaches don’t inhibit expression, but that it all came back down to organisation.

    “It’s quite similar with the Crusaders and All Blacks: the coaches encourage you to back your instincts and play what you see, but before you can get to that stage you need certain set structures and certain plays going into the game that you’ve developed for the opposition and areas you are looking to target,” he said.

  • @50shadesofshark (Comment 141) : you’ve selectively quoted.

    This followed:

    “If you get too structured you get a bit one-dimensional and teams soon work that out, but with our plays and how we set things up I would say we are probably more structured than what Genia and Cooper are looking for and doing.

    “But we have a good balance and I think that’s good, because with structure comes clarity for the team. The [players] like to know where they are going, which direction we are going and then within that every now and then you back your instincts.”

    So he’s comparing the ABs approach to the Australian’s approach. He’s saying they have plans and patterns. The SA teams are very different… we’re in the category of “too one dimensional and easy to work out” that Carter talks about.

    Ever seen evidence of any SA team having a plan B? Or shifting plans during a match? No, because “we stick to the structures”.

    There’s the difference.

  • Most of you are all too pre-occupied with your own agendas to see the Kings situation for what it is. An inexperienced team that had a lot less time than all the other sides to prepare for the campaign. The reality is that the EP Kings situation is no fault of anyone currently within the Southern Kings franchise at the moment, so your vitriol is unwarranted, particularly to those who are giving their best at the moment.

    Sharks had an awful 2015, did you just write them off forever based on that, get over yourselves! The Kings will improve, they are already showing incredible fight.

    To me, I have no idea who the Kings represent, nor do I see them adding any value to South African rugby.

    The SR competition was strong armed into including the Kings, both Oz and NZ look at SA rugby with disdain, and the Kings debacle has given them the ammunition to criticise our rugby.

    What reason can we possibly put forward as justification for the inclusion of a 6th SA franchise, when we’re hardly able field 3 competitive teams in any year?

    The Kings faught valiently, but still conceded 5 log points to a NZ team. This is not a development competition, it is THE premier club competition in the world…there is no time for sentiment.

    If there is any hope of turning the Kings into a competitive side, and not merely valiant losers, then I’ll get on board with their inclusion – currently though, they will continue to be easy 5 points for visiting teams….

  • @FireTheLooser (Comment 158) : Lets judge them over a season as opposed to their 1st 2 games of that, surely that is fair to ask, Rome wasn’t built in one day and the Kings are literally being rebuilt from scratch. The Lions did it more recently, the Bulls did in the early/mid 2000s, why can’t we be afforded the same opportunity? Why should we be judged over 2 games as opposed to a season.

    The Sharks last season were hapless as Crusaders ran riot at Kings Park, look where they are now! Judge us after our second season in this comp at the very least!

  • @Ludz (Comment 159) : Let’s be honest here – the Lions used their year in the wilderness to get their house in order, and they came back into SR a vaslty improved team….currently leading the way with innovative and attractive play.

    Contrast this with the Kings, who had two years to get their house in order, yet they managed to conpletely collapse just in time for the start of SR.

    Kings squandered their opportunity (and yes, the Kings currently being liquidated is the Kings representing Eastern Province).

    The Kings currently playing is a saru initiative, managed by saru….and mostly coached by saru’s mobi unit (it seems). This is also why I question whom they represent, as the EP franchise collapsed.

    It’s harsh on you supporters obviously, and you have been done a grave injustice by the failed EP management.

    EP needs to restructure their management strucutres, and then get saru to give them their SR franchise back.

  • @Sharks_have_Character! (Comment 167) : You would not see it, because you don’t know much about their structures. EP u19s won promotion to A Division at the end of 2013, they finished 6th out of 7 in 2014. They won the competition last year. EP u21s won promotion in 2014, in their first year, they finished last in the comp with a solitary win against the Sharks. We will see how they do in 2016. That is natural progression. CJ Velleman and Malcolm Jaer would have never stayed without the attraction of potential Super Rugby in the future just to give you an example! Do some research on the EP Academy.

    Player acquisition and player retention depends on the level of comp they are offered.

    Lets not be so narrow-minded about everything gentlemen. It’s not always black or white, grey is a possibility sometimes ;)

  • @Ludz (Comment 169) : lovely that you see peaches and roses and sugar and spice… good for you. But I will only start to take an interest when EP start dominating the likes of the Sharks, Bulls and WP in the Currie Cup Premier Division (they were given free entry to the competition) – or at least competing on an equal footing. Until then, the siple truth is that the region has no right to a Super Rugby place and SA has no ability to field 6 Super Rugby teams. In fact we’re the laughing stock of the Kiwis and the Aussies because of it.

  • @50shadesofshark (Comment 171) : Canterbury were in the Super 10 in 1995 mate. They’d won the NPC twice before too, when Auckland pretty much won it every year.

    You’re also doing Canterbury a disservice. They didn’t lose all their games in 1996 – they beat the Hurricanes and Waratahs ;-)

    Point is, you don’t develop a team in Super Rugby. Defeats by 35 and 34 points in their two opening games at home are not good for the tournament in anyone’s books. This is your major stumbling block ;-)

    We all know EP

  • @Ludz (Comment 169) : If I’m not mistaken, the Leopards also managed to win u/19 comp a few years ago….yet they too couldn’t retain any of their players, or acquire top players. Surely SR inclusion should not be motivated by age group achievements.

    Cheetahs have a SR team, yet they too struggle to keep their top players and they struggle to acquire the top players in the country….to me, they too need a complete management shake-up before they’ll ever be consistently competitive.

    We don’t need more teams in SR, we need better coaches – it is a travesty that Varsity Cup coaches are the head coaches of two of our franchises….and an average assistant coach is the other head coach, not to mention the EP coaching team.

    Our players assests are being grossly mismanaged and under utilised – we have now further dilluted our ability to effectively coach our vast player stocks.

  • @FireTheLooser (Comment 173) : You failing to see my point, natural progression, let me put it this way. You wouldn’t just build a house, there has to be a foundation before the house is built. Our junior structures are that foundation and we continue to get the bulk of outstanding youngsters in the EC, there will be a natural progression into the senior structures by these youngsters! It will only get better from there. As I said Rome wasn’t built in one day and it will take time! What many of you okes are failing to see is that the structure has to be right from the bottom to top before we see results.

    It was headed that way until the financial issues, so now we are practically starting from scratch again. The thing about the Leopards winning it or doing well in the comp is irrelevant because you compare them to a union with a Super Rugby franchise which is the big difference. Anyway most of you seem to have made up your minds about the men from PE and that’s well within your rights. So let me not bother and rather let our progression over next season or 2 do the talking! Good day

  • @FireTheLooser (Comment 173) : As for the EP coaching team, you’d very surprised. Can’t speak for Deon Davids, but Mzwandile Stick and Barend Pieterse, you would be very very surprised. Anyway I will allow them to do the talking.
