  • Did Bros pass out towards the end there? He disappeared with 10 minutes to go…or is our lead commentator also doing the post-match presentation? I prefer thinking he also played my drinking game and it just got too much for him… :grin:

    This was good rugby, and between the bulls and Sharks, this CC have already delivered more entertainment than I expected for the entire season.

  • @pastorshark (Comment 131) : The fluidity on attack, and ability to keep the ball alive whilst handing-off the opposition….seems to boil down to skills coaching.

    Either way, this coaching team really clicked for their first game in charge….our team also played clever rugby, no headless-run-from-anywhere rugby.

    Lots of similarities between Sharks and bulls tactics, ‘cept for our boys demolition work at scrum time.

    I am genuinely surprised by what this CC has delivered on day 1.

  • @FireTheLooser (Comment 132) : Hadn’t read your earlier comment. Agree 100%, there was definitely an improvement in the skills, awareness and option taking last from what we’ve been seeing. The two R’s definitely combined well as they compliment each other very well. Rob’s attacking game won’t get off the ground without the skills and vice versa. Also remember that Ricardo is first a backline coach and I saw some moves I hadn’t seen before. Pity Omar left but seems to have left his play book behind. The 4 guys including the forwards coach would have made a kickass team. Maybe it’s time for Everitt to focus on defence and build on the foundation of Omar.

    Gutted for the Lions and the rest of the ex Sharks contingent with them and especially for their supporters.

    Well done to the Canes for breaking their duck….they were monstrous on defense.

    Question for the Lions: what’s the use of throwing a home final away, when they merely end up losing the away final in any case?
