Strong sharks XV pack for Loftus

Sharks XV coach Michael Horak has named a side for this weekend’s Currie Cup qualifying round clash at Loftus that would not look out of place in the premier division proper. The pack, in particular, boasts six players with Super Rugby experience, including a Springbok in the form of Chiliboy Ralepelle.

There’s not a lot at stake for either team, given just how little this competition means for entrenched Super Rugby unions, but one feels that there could be some interesting markers laid down ahead of the “real” Currie Cup to come, particularly since a fair few of the players on either side will likely come into the frame then as well. Props Juan Schoeman and Gerhard Engelbrecht both played plenty of Currie Cup last year and will, I’m sure, do so again later in the year. Ruan Botha continues his comeback from injury in the number 4 jersey, alongside Hyron Andrews, a man whose recent Super Rugby experience will make him a formidable weapon in the Currie Cup.

Captain Khaya Majola forms an experienced loose trio with Tera Mtembu and Christiaan de Bruin, with the latter joining Engelbrecht as the only other player in the pack with Super Rugby caps to his name.

Hanco Venter partners club flyhalf Duncan Campbell in a halfback pairing that will need to play out of their skins in a hostile environment. Horak has retained the balance of the back line that faced EP last week, with Legend Marwana, Marcel Coetzee and Alrin Eksteen the young Turks in a division that includes heavy hitters S’bura Sithole and Wandile Mjekevu at 13 and 14 respectively.

Sharks XV: 15 Alrin Eksteen, 14 Wandile Mjekevu, 13 Sibusiso Sithole, 12 Nkululeko Marwana, 11 Marcel Coetzee, 10 Duncan Campbell, 9 Hanco Venter, 8 Lubabalo Mtembu, 7 Christiaan de Bruin, 6 Khaya Majola (captain), 5 Hyron Andrews, 4 Ruan Botha, 3 Gerhard Engelbrecht, 2 Malatse Ralepelle, 1 Juan Schoeman
Subs: 16 Stephan Coetzee, 17 Mzamo Majola, 18 Ruan Kramer, 19 David McDuling, 20 Wian Vosloo, 21 Dylan Marcus, 22 Kelvin Elder/Tristan Tedder

  • Thats a good tight 5 but id like to see more aggression from them than i saw last week. Definitely a good pack on paper though. Nice to see Duncan Campbell back- quality player if he can get his head right. Can someone maybe slap Sithole in the warm up so that he is awake this game. Pretty young bench again apart from Aussie Dave

  • @robdylan (Comment 3) : thanks.yes disrupts continuity and never can know if the team is performing at 100% match fitness.would like for the sharks to use this cc season to start developing a player to fill the 4/7 role.think it is an important position to cover on the bench.

  • Know I don’t need to ask as you guys are usually brilliant in providing updates, but… yeah for those who do watch, updates will be very much appreciated!

    Side note: why do all the other sites provide such crap updates? Can’t get a feel for a game by just seeing updates to scoreboard. Only other good updater I’ve found is the baabaas twitter guy.

  • @coolfusion (Comment 138) : We had great moments, but must say I think Sithole was trying to hard and forced some passes, Eksteen will be a great prospect, our loosies was very quite tonight, some mixed feelings about the game as our set pieces was great tonight, but we lacked in defence and finishing

  • @Henkb (Comment 142) : Ja must agree on the forwards very sluggish on the loosies. Chilliboy did well he is going to be a good asset. Must question some of the decisions though we looked very good with strong runners onto the ball close to the line but did not exploit that option when we could have. Instead used only crashball last 15 minutes?
