  • Go Sharks! I really hope we see some coaching, skill – and most importantly, pride for the jersey – everything the backsliding springboks don’t seem to have. I can deal with the springboks up that infamous creek without means of propulsion, if the Sharks give me hope.

  • CC rugby has become the surprise entertainer during this part of the rugby season….thought RC would overshadow CC for entertainment value, but the opposite has happenned.

    Go Sharks, win or lose, let’s hope this is an entertaining game.

Its not pretty. Not at all. Yet astoundingly they only trail by 5… Im not quite sure how thats possible but Ill take it. Who knows, a couple of lucky interceptions and its game on.

  • Yah guys, tough to not get any points

    but once we lost keegs, ginger, odwa the balance of youth and experience was not in our favour.

    JLDP had a shocker fielding kick offs (milkshakes it look easy)

    Radebe, had a poor game but the team was in general on the back foot, with more experience and coaching he will learn how to play the the heat is on.

    frans had a quite first half but once he took over from kick offs and 8th man he looked reAlly good.

    majola had a avg game.

    JLDP played better once he didn’t have to field kicks and could move back to.flank.

    once we lost Phillip we were in trouble as all of the Cheetahs loose forwards are big unites, which hurt them in SR, cause those okes are slow but it helped them today.

    it will be interesting to see what they do next week, I would place Radebe on the bench and start April

  • @Mephisto_Shark (Comment 131) : RdP needs to form a team spirit first, I agree. Our best play came off individual moments. We need a quality 9 and 10 to dictate our attack. JLDP never scrumed. He was watching the rest from the back. When he shifted to the side we were more effective. A school coach would have been able to blow more fire into a team at half time. Truly no reason to go out to the stadium to watch this sad stuff.

  • OK so after some time to calm down here’s my 2 cents:
    Losing KD (before the game) and the Ginger Ninja (after just 30sec) did not help!
    Inny, Franna and Majola was all invisible tonight. Maybe time to give April or Smith a start. Franna’s long time out injured showed and as for Majola poor lad had not chance of replacing the Ginger Ninja. Not sure if Majola is an option for Super rugby especially not at 7 and 8.
    Thomas got schooled in the scrums and it just showed that Sharks urgently needs another backup tight head for Super rugby! Then again he was a totally different player once he moved over to loose head.
    Of all the Sharks “regular star performers” non were able to shine tonight.
    Cheetahs had a really good game and totally out played the Sharks (especially in the first half).
    Let’s see how RdP and the Sharks respond after losing two games in a row?!

  • Reinach is back next year Feb I believe. I hope ginger doesn’t get kept out of the team like Lambie did cause of a knock to the head cause we need him. we can still win the cc but getting a home semi is going to be tough, and a home final even tougher.

    Odwa is out so wandile and sithole will have to step up now, they are young athletic and talented but neither have been consistent for some time, so now is their chance to stake a claim.

    yesterday was a complete mess, was angered really the captain when ginger went off ? I.like the kid even though his inconsistent too, If I were ousthuizen I would have stepped up to be captain, ungerer isn’t even a SR regular.

    I guess with Lambie, Mvovo, Reinach, lewies, Dan, ginger, keegs, odwa, Chadwick, beast etc not available for different reason, everyone will have to step up

    I’d start April and ungerer next week, Radebe did well until yester and even then I can blame him entirely but. but now it’s time for April to show what he can do and put Radebe on the bench keep Curwin at fullback. bring Louw in to cover centre cause haimer, is leaving, or if you do play haimer don’t play him anywhere but inside centre.

    two loses in a row, it’s time we refocus and start building toward a play off spot more, than building depth for SRor testing young guns. although you can do both, just get the experience balance on the field correct cause once ginger went down it was like no one knew how to stay calm.

  • @revolverocelot (Comment 139) : The loss is going to put a lot of pressure on the Sharks. Bulls have a relatively easy run in to the finals with matches against Griquas and Boland to round out their league phase, whereas the Sharks have a tough match against the Lions ahead. The Bulls can conceivably end on a minimum of 29 points, which means the Sharks will have to beat the Lions to get a possible home semi-final
    Cheetahs also have to face the Lions, but can secure a home semi-final with matches against Griquas at home and Pumas away, of course the Griquas can still upset the apple cart if they can upset the more fancied teams.

  • Lets be honest from the moment Van Der Walt went off the Sharks didnt look like they would win the game. The rest of the game looked like an u14 team playing he 1st XV. Sharks got bullied and beaten up all over the field. Handling errors and conceding silly penalties are once again becoming the norm as like every other CC season. Cheetahs were solid today but far from the best they have played…but they do play as a team and especially scrum as one and that i must give credit for. Lets see what changes are made for this week against the Kings…

Also maybe time to chance the flyhalf give either Bosch or April a chance as Inny was also missing for the last couple of games.

  • Just watched the game on Youtube and reckon the score flatters the Sharks. I can’t remember when last I saw such a shambles in just about every facet of the game. Scrums crap, balls knocked, no fetching, charge-downs, clueless backs, etc. The only glimmer of professionalism was line-outs on our ball.

    I don’t agree with those calling for Bosch to replace Inny. I would keep him at 10 and experiment with Ryno Smith at 12. I don’t get the infatuation with Esterhuizen, who does fuck all to spark the backline, so is basically the bottleneck between Radebe and the flyers we have outside. Esterhuizen does nothing all game except run into the brick wall waiting for him. It’s exactly the reason the Boks are so crap as well – Jantjies and Mapoe are used to a playmaker at 12, but got De Allende. Then people say the Lions players can’t make the step up.

    The less said about Ungerer the better. How the fuck is he stand-in captain?????

    What made this game really hurt was watching our whole front row being lifted into the air and be treated like a club side playing a SR team.

    It was by far our weakest pack this season but shite shite. JLDP is a super talent but please keep him away from fielding kickoffs. Franna & Khaya probably needs to go to Frnace or Japan to get a full season or two under their belt because unfortunately they are not fulfilling early promise

    hopefully no one gets rushed back this weekend as first choices will be required vs Lions.

    Other aspect that really bothered me was how far the backline hangs back and make no attempt to stop the attack from crossing gainline. Is this due to Inny being moved to wing?

  • @Sharkfinn (Comment 156) : Esterhuizen is a crash-ball centre, no matter who plays 10. He just doesn’t seem to learn how to run lines, which split defenders. I’m afraid Jake was right in moving him to flank.

  • @Kabouter (Comment 154) : Agree. Chiliboy has to start and captain if Keegan or Ginger aren’t fit.

  • @Kabouter (Comment 168) : In terms of your last point- yes and no. There is nobody leading the line on defense. But also looks like we are employing more of a drift defense which also doesnt make sense as we place our weakest defender on the wing that then needs to make the tackle.

  • @The hound (Comment 151) : then April must be given a chance as Inny was nowhere in the last couple of games.

  • @SheldonK (Comment 171) : Zeilinga was allowed to pretty much cross the A line before he had to make a decision and we allowed a lot of momentum. Zeilinga be far the weakest in the Cheetahs lineup and I believe missed the opportunity to put presure on him – same as with RdP last week.

    Hopefully the lienup / strategy gets refined to work as 10 tries in two games conceded is a clear indication it is not working

  • @KingCheetah (Comment 174) : Cheetahs badly need a 10. Id even play Michael Van Der Spuy there with Francois Venter, Nico Lee , William Small-smith ,Neil Marais combining in some form in the centres.

  • @SheldonK (Comment 177) : @KingCheetah (Comment 181) : personally I think Rob dP jnr will be a perfect fit for the Cheetahs. I’m just wondering what happend with Fred? He was looking really good and then just lost form?

  • @JD (Comment 182) : I dont think anyone took over the specific portfolio. It was just combined into the other coaches roles. @JD (Comment 183) : Can never see Rob DP Jnr going to Bloem…WP are going to hold onto him. Whats ever happened to that other SA u20 flyhalf Stapelberg from WP?

  • @KingCheetah (Comment 181) : Ive heard the name but cant say ive watched the guy play at all. Zelinga isnt the answer at 10 though. Sias Ebersohn seems to be banished and think Neil Marais is probably better suited to 12. Perhaps they should enquire about Marnitz Boshoff?

  • @SheldonK (Comment 184) : he torn his quad in the warmup for the VC final and has been doing rehad and has 4 weeks left – doing rehab with Pollard at institute in Stellies. Kings wanted loan him as he is a PE boy.

    His dad is one of best mates. He has 1 year left on WP contract but cant see him staying as Coleman, RdP, JL Du Plessis and Thompson ahead in the queue. Best attributes is that he is a strong player which likes to attack the gain line and boots it a mile (put a 60m drop kick over to win game vs WP playing for EP u18). He is in same situation as the two province players apparently moving to DBN.

    At the moment he is planning to make sure he gets a good VC under his belt to get a move away from WP to get game time. He does not have Inny’s hands but next to Esterhuizen would make sure 10/12 channel is shut down. Personally think he would benefit playing 12 next to a good 10 to learn the art of 10, not a strong as Esterhuizen but much more creativity and game awareness. He is highly rated by Gert Small but needs game time and miles ahead of Fouche and Watts that played for Kings this year in SR and whole family in PE might just see him turn out for Kings if they are in SR in 2017.

    @KingCheetah (Comment 181) : Eksteen has load of potential but needs game time, and Cheetahs a good fit for his style.

  • @Kabouter (Comment 186) : Ah shot for the info. If that is the case with him looking for game time then perhaps the Kings but eish thats a risky move. If i wwere him id look to somewhere like Boland…or if a bigger Union maybe Free Sate or even the Lions if Boschoff leaves

  • @SheldonK (Comment 187) : yip, Boland down the road so he could still finish up at Maties. I think next to Swart at Kwaste would also work well or a conversion to 12 could create opportunities. Ja Kings is risky especially with Ward gone. A combo of 9 Hall, 10 Stapelberg, 12 Watermeyer 13 Ward would have been very exciting prospect.

    I know they were thinking 15 as an option but Bosch is closing that route for any higher honors… tough decisions to make as I now he does not want to become a journey man like Brummer / Watts or just get paid to muck around in qualifiers and then just sit again

  • @Kabouter (Comment 190) : Assuming the status quo is maintained then Boland should probably qualify again for the CC and they do need a flyhalf badly. SA does need better quality 15s so not the worst option either…cant just bank on 1 guy coming through.
