Sharks name sides for warm-up


Written by Rob Otto (robdylan)

A large number of players will be in action over the course of two matches in Umlazi tomorrow. Rob du Preez has named line ups for both outings, with the first game due to last 60 minutes and the second 80.

Given that this is a first hit-out, du Preez will look to make wholesale substitutions late in the second game as he aims to keep his players fresh for the season proper.

Tera Mtembu leads a young side in the first outing, from his favoured position at number 8. Jean Deysel and Francois Kleinhans complete a balanced loose trio, while youngster Wian Vosloo is given an opportunity to impress in the number 4 jersey, alongside Hyron Andrews. Stephan Coetzee will taste action in a Sharks jersey at hooker, while Lourens Adriaanse and John-Hubert Meyer, the latter at loosehead, are the props.

Inny Radebe will have a big job on his hands, calling the shots from flyhalf. Hanco Venter is his partner at halfback, with an interesting centre combination of Jeremy Ward (at 12) and Johan Deysel operating in the opposite positions to which we might expect. S’bura Sithole and Rhyno Smith are the experienced men in the back three, with young Sbusiso Nkosi set to show his wares in the number 14 jersey.

Sharks B: 15 Rhyno Smith, 14 S’bura Sithole, 13 Johan Deysel, 12 Jeremy Ward, 11 S’busiso Nkosi, 10 Inny-Christian Radebe, 9 Hanco Venter, 8 Tera Mtembu (capt), 7 Jean Deysel, 6 Francois Kleinhans, 5 Hyron Andrews, 4 Wian Vosloo, 3 Lourens Adriaanse, 2 Stephan Coetzee, 1 John-Hubert Meyer.
Subs: 16 Juan Schoeman, 17 Gerhard Engelbrecht, 18 Jean Droste, 19 Khaya Majola, 20 Jacques Vermuelen, 21 Rowan Gouws, 22 Benhard Janse van Rensburg, 23 Odwa Ndungane, 24 Marius Louw, 25 Tristan Blewett, 26 Morne Joubert, 27 Garth April

Pat Lambie is paired with Michael Claassens at halfback for the second game, with Cobus Reinach set to make his return to rugby off an extended bench later on. The impressive centre combination of Andre Esterhuizen and Lukhanyo Am is retained, with new boy Kobus van Wyk forcing his way into the side at right wing. Lwazi Mvovo and Curwin Bosch complete the back line as expected.

Up front, Chiliboy Ralepelle and Coenie Oosthuizen form an all-Bok front row with Beast Mtawarira, while Etienne Oosthuizen and Ruan Botha will pair up in the second row. Philip van der Walt, interestingly, will start the game in the number 6 jersey, with Keegan Daniel at 8 and Jean-Luc du Preez on the blindside flank. This lineup must be pretty close to the one du Preez thinks will start against the Reds later this month, but there are, of course, plenty of things that can happen between now and then.

Sharks A: 15 Curwin Bosch, 14 Kobus van Wyk, 13 Lukhanyo Am, 12 Andre Esterhuizen, 11 Lwazi Mvovo, 10 Patrick Lambie (capt), 9 Michael Claassens, 8 Keegan Daniel, 7 Jean-Luc du Preez, 6 Philip van der Walt, 5 Ruan Botha, 4 Etienne oosthuizen, 3 Coenie Oosthuizen, 2 Chiliboy Ralepelle, 1 Tendai Mtawarira.
Subs: 16 Juan Schoeman, 17 Franco Marais, 18 Lourens Adriaanse, 19 Jean Droste, 20 Hyron Andrews, 21 Francois Kleinhans, 22 Jacques Vermeulen, 23 Tera Mtembu, 24 Cobus Reinach, 25 Benhard Janse van Rensburg, 26 S’busiso Nkosi, 27 Jeremy Ward, 28 Johan Deysel, 29 S’bura Sitole, 30 Clement Poitrenaud

  • @vanmartin (Comment 4) : free-fall?! You mean it can still go down from here?!?!?!
    Like the loose trio just not the formation they’re playing in. Ginger is probably the best 8 in SA (well at least according to me) so would not start him in 6 or 7 especially at the beginning of the season. That said it’s a warm up game so why not try it and see what the big man can do at 6.

  • @robdylan (Comment 3) : Serious niggles,or will they be ready when the season start? We are okay with loose forwards,but we really need Lewies ready to go when the season starts. Although I hope Dan can get a proper full season behind him to show us how good he really is

  • Interesting lineups. Very glad to see RDP trying some new combos as not just sticking to tried and tested that hasnt worked. Pretty decent Cheetahs lineup named too so should be a good test although looks like game will be played in the rain. I like the idea of Van Der Walt at 6- there is a spot open there for the Boks if he can excel.

  • Interesting loose trio. I am looking forward to see if KD can rediscover his attacking flair with two grafters at 6 and 7. I miss those breaks of his due to running great angles surprising the defense.

  • Was anyone else expecting the Deysel and Ward combo to be reversed? Was sure Ward is a specialist 13 or do I have it wrong?

  • @vanmartin (Comment 22) : Will see how they actually line up. Deysel has played 13 before and perhaps they trying Ward in the 12 slot as more of a playmaker.

  • @vanmartin (Comment 22) : I didn’t expect that at all. Would love to know the thinking behind the move, as Ward did extremely well at 13 for the junior Boks. I also feel we need a solid option at 13. Andre is very solid at 12, but Am still needs to convince me. Unless they plan on playing Ward at 13, but need him to cover 12 as well to give Andre some rest every now and again, then this would be a great opportunity to give him some game time at 12.

    Case of step up to the plate or move aside for someone who can.
    9 in the Sharks team has always been the key to success and in my view we haven’t had a 9 of note since Kockert.

  • @HeinF (Comment 24) : AM is the real deal and may be just the catalyst we have been looking for the past 5 years at the Sharks. He has BOK written all over him. Good to see that Rob is not, like previous coaches, giving Cobus a free spot on the team. Cobus has many flaws at 9 he needs to work on before he can be the quality 9 that he is destined to be. Good to see Dysel back, looking lean, we need a back up for Jean-Luc. Hope Coenie finally established himself as the real deal at tight head this season. He’s also looking very lean and well conditioned. Last but not least, let’s pray for once we don’t get serious injuries this season especially to key players.

  • @KingRiaan (Comment 41) : Good point! I’m hoping for Coenie to have a good season without injuring one of our own players again and to play a clean game at least once a month.

    @The hound (Comment 40) : Yeah I’m not overly stoked about our 9′s either but if Reinach is on form he will do more than enough. He’s a good player to me, he just needs consistency in his game.

  • @GreatSharksays (Comment 43) : I know very little, I am always guessing ;-) I won’t say start Ward in front of Am, I don’t believe that is fair to a player who did well for the sharks last year. I hope you are right about Am, he just didn’t convince me completely of that last year. Also to be honest, I could be a little bias, as I really enjoyed watching Ward for the baby boks and was pleasantly surprised that we actually got him to sign with us. The competition between the two can only force both of them to improve, so nice having the two of them after loosing Jordaan (after he only played one season of good rugby!)

    Ref? not his biggest fan but i thought he had a good game accept for our first yellow, they had 3 penalties early in the red zone and no card, our first in the red zone we got red? but otherwise good.

  • @Henkb (Comment 86) : no man, he catches and kicks, like last year. Frenchie much more prominent in attack. I am an attack minded supporter and I just feel Bosch is not great in contact, he loses the ball in contact and hardly ever overs himself as a ball carrier from the back, prefers to kick. Just my opinion, but the franchie made a big difference for me. In fact, the subs looked better than the starters, but perhaps that is because the starters put the squeeze on the Cheetahs. Great win first up either way

  • Couldn’t watch tonight. Sounds like a reasonably good hit out – especially in the second half. Sounds like Strudwick is going a good job as defence coach – glad about that. A few questions:
    - who played 6 after Keegan went off? Did Ginger stay there or did he move to 8? How did Ginger go at 6?
    - did our lineouts improve later in the game?
    - did Ward come on for Am? How did AE go?
    - how was Pat’s game?

    With Thomas,Dan and Lewies in the wings things are looking good.
    Worry about 2 and 9,nothing on display tonight in either of those positions to inspire confidence,
    Connie and Jean Luc were outstanding,.Pat rusty but game to take contact good sign.

  • @The hound (Comment 126) : Hound, I see your point regarding hooker…Chilliboy struggled to find his jumpers, although it seems Marais was solid. Claassens was very rusty, and that break and pass from Reinach to Jean Deysel was epic. Reinach seemed better than Claassens, in spite of – or maybe because of – more time on the sidelines. I suppose regular game time can only help.

  • @pastorshark (Comment 135) : I think it was a very clever decision to bring this guy in he can take all the pressure off of Curwin
    .I think in time Curwin will become a legend but it all depends on how he is managed this year,important not to repeat the disastrous management of April last year first by Gold and then by Coetzee.
    He needs to be gently fed into the system very much like the New Zealanders are doing with Damian Mckenzie,as they did with Beudon Barrit.
    Unlike what we did with Jaantjies,Goosen,April,throw them into the deep deep end, where lack of experience and huge pressure swamps talent.

  • After watching second half of the game I’m not reading a lot into the Sharks warm up game result. Most of the points were scored when reserves came on and Cheetahs were getting tired.
    That said Cobus and Johan Deysel did look good when they came on! André and/or Am will be pushed hard by Johan and they will have to step up to keep their starting spots!

  • Just chatting to my mate who ran touch for the game he said that the ref Quintin Immelman got quite a talking to afterwards as apparently it was felt he didnt ref the game well and missed a lot. He also said that although the Sharks subs did make a difference in the 2nd half the game was a lot slower when the young subs came on compared to the first half. And the first game was apparently same speed as a club prem game.

  • Just my thought from watching the game on tv: The Sharks discipline needs to improve or we will get nowhere no matter how much we improve our attacking skills etc. RDP also needs to be brave and pick the guys that put their hands up with performances like Fri night even if they are the youngster and not the big name. So based on what i saw on Fri these are the 23 id go with against the Reds. (Ps. apparently Keegan broke his arm so is out for a good few weeks)
    1. Beast 2. Marais 3. Coenie 4. Botha 5. Droste 6. Van Der Walt 7. DuPreez 8. Mthembu 9. Reinach 10. Lambie 11. Mvovo 12. Esterhuizen 13. Am 14. Van Wyk 15. Bosch
    Subs: 16. DuToit (nobody else) 17. Chilliboy 18. Adriaanse 19. Vermuelen 20. Deysel 21. Claasens 22. Janse Van Rensburg 23. Ward

  • @SheldonK (Comment 150) : Good side. Have to agree with you 100% especially the number 5 jersey. That Botha fellow needs to step up bigtime. Big improvement from Cobus, hope he maintains it cause his form always seems to take a dip as the season progresses. Maybe it’s complacency due to being assured of a place by previous coaches. So well done to Rob for getting the message across to all the players, that you are not guaranteed a place. Was also pleasantly surprised by Benhatd Janse van Rensburg, the speed and smoothness of his, commitment in defense and heart were really impressive.

  • @GreatSharksays (Comment 152) : I was very impressed with Van Rensburg- as you say big on defense and not afraid to take the ball to the line with a good pass. I saw him play for Pukke and wondered if he could translate that to the seniors and looks like he can.
    The locks do concern me. Botha and Oosthuizen on paper have the best pedigree but both have discipline issues- especially Oosthuizen who is a walking penalty and gets his team on a warning quick. So to be honest id be tempted to go with the youngsters Vosloo and Droste, or maybe even Vermuelen in there for some experience.

Trouble is people only look at who gets cards but like on Fri it was Oosthuizen that gave away the penalties and then Keegan got a yellow for a minor infringement after that. So he puts pressure on his team mates. Hoping he can sort it out as he can offer a lot

  • I also thought Francois Kleinhans showed up well in his little cameo appearance on Friday

  • @JD (Comment 157) : He does have a tendency to be over eager and get himself into some trouble but as you say it wasn’t really a problem last year so let’s hope it’s just a bit of extra energy flowing through the veins.

    We really need to work on our line-outs though! We had a couple of shockers that will cost us games in SR. Hopefully, it’s some pre-season rust from the hookers and nothing more but we looked out of sync there.

    I liked what I saw from the new kid Van Wyk, such a strong runner, doesn’t go down easily!

  • @SheldonK (Comment 159) : That guy always plays well. Let’s hope he remains injury free as he can only get better. Lots of power and explosiveness which is needed at this level.

  • @Quintin (Comment 160) : Kobus has been on the scene for a while. Deadly finisher. Did wonders at the Stormers. What did you guys think of Sbu Nkosi? Has pace, a step and is built like a warrior at 1.88meters tall and 97kg’s.

  • @GreatSharksays (Comment 161) : Trouble with Kleinhans is that he really only covers 6 and isnt a great lineout option so dont think a coach could have the luxury of picking him on the bench. If he gets picked its to start and at 6.

  • @GreatSharksays (Comment 162) : Nkosi is a big guy, quick with a good step. Couple question marks over his handling, especially under pressure. But after missing a large chunk of last season he just needs to stay fit and play some rugby and he will improve quickly

  • @SheldonK (Comment 163) : Yeah it’s a pity KD was injured but it opens the door to a couple of guys like Terra, I think he showed some good stuff when he had the ball so I’m hoping for him to have an extended run this season.

  • @Quintin (Comment 165) : Yeh unlucky for Keegan but in Mthembu and Vermuelen and DuPreez when fit i think we well covered. Id like to see Van Der Walt continue at 6

  • I like the look of Nkosi. Both he ans S’bura grassed relatively simple passes on the night, though, so work to be done.

  • @robdylan (Comment 167) : Am i right in saying that Ungerer didnt play at all on Fri? I know Hanco Venter started the first game, did Rowan Gouwws or Stevens play?
