  • oh god home town calls here all round. That was not a try. You can see clear separation with the ball and the hand – it was a knock on.

    Is it Marius Jonker as TMO? Seems the media reaction from last week got to home. Ashfak Mohamed’s tactics worked.

  • It’s all well and good saying the Sharks are the only unbeaten team now, but drawing a game you should have won, snatched from the jaws of victory, is just like a loss to me. Technically schmecnically unbeaten. We don’t feel like an unbeaten team.

    Well done to the Stormers for humbling a team most people thought would trample them. They manned up and rose to the occasion. I only hope the Sharks can do the same against the Crusaders next weekend.

  • In retrospect,I am glad we faced a fresh Bulls team straight off a break ,than a Lions team straight off the plane from New Zealand.
    Those Lions are going to be a handful,best S.A. team in the competition.
    Once again why do we have a New Zealand ref against the Bulls,and the Stormers get an S.A ref against an Aussie team.
    Logic and fairness would have had the n.z ref in Cape Town and Pyper in Pretoria.

  • Wow, what a surprise. A supporter follows their team through thick and thin. Some of us have been through the trauma of B section rugby. We’ve stuck through thick and thin. Taking where we were last year and where we are now, is light years apart. After all the results The Sharks are still unbeaten! Did we play well last night…… . No, and did we lose…. No. Last week most supporters castigated the Sharks because we didn’t win pretty. How many placed the Brumbies as an example of a successful team. The Stormers bliksems them 31-13 and we beat the stormers. A little perspective is required. All I’m asking is for supporters to be be objective and IMHO some are very subjective. In all honesty we are not the finished article, we have a long way to go, and he’ll, yes would I prefer to be around Emirates Park and watch the style of lions rugby……. Probably yes, but we are still unbeaten and believe we are building to something special.

  • So far nothing in the reports on pro-WP Sport24 and IOL about the dodgy TMO call by Jonker and Etzebeth’s smack to Mann-Rea’s face which led to his retaliation. Mohamed just says “Jonker was happy with the grounding” but keeps his usual opinionated self to himself by not expressing any further view on this occasion. Typical :lol:

    Good ol’ Rugby 365 seem to infer it was a dodgy call though.

  • Sam Cane can expect a citing. It was missed by the ref on the park. The TMO tried to intervene but it was too late.

  • What a contest. The home crowd were fantastic. The Jaguars were dangerous, the Chiefs played their usual counter-attacking game and in the end just scraped through. The Sharks better prepare hard for this fixture because these Jaguars have the potential to blow one-dimensional teams away.

    I don’t ever want to hear the travel excuse from South Africans again after seeing the Chiefs fly NZ – SA – Brazil – Arg and fight their way to this win.

    As I’m sure you know, nortie, Jaguares is Spanish for Jaguars… if you want to pronounce it like a Spaniard mid English sentence, that’s your prerogative. Feel free to go around calling them the Hug-u-ah-rez by all means.

  • In fact during the commentary Tony Johnstone stated “the Jaguars or as they want us here to call them, the Hug-u-ah-rez”. When in Rome perhaps? But can you imagine Owen and Brosni trying to master this Spanish version? Hell no :lol:

    The South American Jaguars team from the 80s would have been pronounced the exact same way in Spanish by the way. Fortunately the Pumas in Spanish is los Pumas – so much easier for our anglicised tongues, no?

  • @benji (Comment 202) : then you pop over to Sport24. There’s just the one report about the Sharks/Bulls game “Pietersen’s miss gives Bulls draw”.

    In addition to the match report on the Stormers game old Houwie has his usual separate fan boy piece about how clever Fleck is (“Fleck passes huge exam”) and Lloyd Burnard gives us “Fleck 1 – 0 Larkham”. As if we didn’t get the message yet by any chance.

    The Stormers sure do have a lot written about them.

    I’m still waiting for something other than the usual match report about the log leaders.

  • Over at IOL someone by the name of ANA Sports Writer has come up with this pearler:

    “At Loftus Versfeld, a missed penalty goal by Joe Pietersen on the stroke of full-time denied theSharks their seventh successive Super Rugby victory and forced them to settle for a draw against the Bulls.

    The victory for the hosts, however, marked their fourth back-to-back victory against the Sharks, and it maintained their dominance against the Durban side at Loftus Versfeld dating back to the 2012 season. To the Bulls delight, the result also marked back-to-back wins for the first time since the 10th round of the competition last season.”

    Nice win by the Bulls. Sums up how most of us are taking the draw :lol:

  • Dammit! Even Planet Rugby has an extra piece entitled “No egos for improving Stormers”.

    Nothing extra about the Sharks game.

    How is it that ALL of Sport24, IOL, Rugby365 and Planet Rugby are running multiple articles about the Stormers and NOTHING about the Sharks (or any other SA team for that matter except one measly article on Sport24 by Jacques Van der Westhuysen about the Lions being the real deal?).

    Curiouser and curiouser!

  • So lets see. What’s the running score? Other than the usual post match reports (every team gets one of those), these are the extra articles on the main South African English online media outlets about the Sharks and Stormers respectively:

    Sport 24 -

    Sharks:

    Nil

    Stormers:

    ‘Fleck 1 – 0 Larkham’
    ‘Stormers: Fleck passes huge exam’

    IOL –

    Sharks:

    Nil

    Stormers: ‘Stormers outsmarted Brumbies’

    Rugby365 -

    Sharks:

    Nil

    Stormers:

    ‘Fleck Hails Stormers Composure’

    Planet Rugby -

    Sharks:

    Nil

    Stormers:

    ‘No egos for improving Stormers’

    A nice little 5 to nothing there. How is it that one team can get all the attention? Why aren’t fans of other teams speaking up about this? Am I missing something???

  • I hope the Lions put the Stormers to the sword.

    The hypocrisy from the rugby press to spend a whole week dissecting a Sharks try only to follow that with singing the Stormers praises and ignoring the most recent controversial TMO decision because this one went the Stormers way.

    Ship the whole lot off to Oz and let’s find rugby journos with a bit more integrity.

  • It suggests to me that there is a reason – I’m just trying to determine what it is. They wouldn’t be paid to write so much garbage about the Stormers unless the links were getting hits. Does that also mean that seeing as there’s virtually nothing about the other teams, that writing about them garners too few hits to warrant the effort?

    Are the Stormers that much more popular or is there a skewed representation of fan boy writers for the Stormers? Are all the press writers based in Cape Town perhaps?

  • @Sharks_have_Character! (Comment 220) : I do see your point, and I really, sincerely appreciate your passion for the Sharks. The Stormers have lost only one close and in their mind controversial, game, and have won the other 3 convincingly. I say let them revel in their facade style journalism and let the Sharks continue to bag log points. I am with JD on this.

  • I’m assuming I miss all the stuff about the Bulls and Cheetahs because it’s written in the Afrikaans media.

    There just seems to be a dearth of Sharks guys with a pen these days. Ken Borland at The Witness used to be great but I see he’s now freelance and doesn’t seem to write much these days. The same goes for Mike Greenaway.

    Just curious for any Natal residents out there – who writes the rugby stuff for The Witness, Mercury and Tribune these days?
