Right – we’re back in Durban for some Super Rugby action, at last.

Neither team really has all that much at stake here, although the Sharks will, of course, want to give themselves the best possible chance of avoiding the Crusaders in the last 8, hence wanting a big win. Both sides have been disrupted by injuries, so it will probably take a while for things to settle down.

Kick-off at Kings Park is at 7pm.

Sharks: 15 Curwin Bosch, 14 Odwa Ndungane, 13 S’bura Sithole, 12 Andre Esterhuizen, 11 Sibusiso Nkosi, 10 Garth April, 9 Cobus Reinach, 8 Daniel du Preez, 7 Tera Mtembu, 6 Philip van der Walt (captain), 5 Stephan Lewies, 4 Etienne Oosthuizen, 3 Coenie Oosthuizen, 2 Franco Marais, 1 Thomas du Toit.
Replacements: 16 Chiliboy Ralepelle, 17 Juan Schoeman, 18 Lourens Adriaanse, 19 Hyron Andrews, 20 Jacques Vermeulen, 21 Michael Claassens, 22 Jeremy Ward, 23 Marius Louw.

Bulls: 15 Warrick Gelant, 14 Duncan Matthews, 13 Jesse Kriel, 12 Jan Serfontein, 11 Kefentse Mahlo, 10 Tony Jantjies, 9 Rudy Paige, 8 Nic de Jager, 7 Jannes Kirsten , 6 Ruan Steenkamp, 5 Rudolph Snyman , 4 Jason Jenkins, 3 Conraad van Vuuren, 2 Adriaan Strauss (captain), 1 Pierre Schoeman.
Replacements: 16 Jaco Visagie, 17 Lizo Gqoboka , 18 Johnroy Jenkins, 19 Shaun Adendorff, 20 Renaldo Bothma, 21 Andre Warner , 22 Burger Odendaal, 23 Tian Schoeman

    Only a few guys on the field played with heart, Thomas, Phillip and Bosch were my standouts. Reinarch looked super crap compared to cronjie and I’m worried about Dan. His hands keep letting him down and I feel a move to lock is required until he sorts out his handling.

  • Hope I’m remembering everything correctly, but a) with the exception of Thomas du Toit, the replacement front row was clearly better, b) there should be consequences for this performance: Dan du Preez, Garth April, Cobus Reinach and Andre Esterhuizen should be dropped to the bench for the next game, or out of the 23 altogether: Keegan came come into the loose forwards with Tera & Philip, Bosch should start at 10, heck even Inny would be better than April right now, give Marius Louw a shot at 12 (or Jeremy Ward), and Claassens at 9 with anon. as back-up, c) Angus Gardener was only refereeing the Sharks at the breakdown, the Bulls got freebies and there were clear knock on’s missed and advantage not given for a dominant scrum, d) is it just me or were the commentators just about wetting themselves waxing lyrical and rhapsodical about the high-flying bulls, like a gaggle of fan boys on a school bus? (including Butch who seems to have become a Sharks critic e) Even Lewies looked disinterested and Hyron Andrews looked more like he wanted to play, f) did everyone know that the bulls were going to win ahead of time? Rugby365 and VodacomRugby seemed to see this coming…did Angus Gardener read these rugby news reports in advance of the day? Did he seem really petulant, especially when he penalized Etienne Oosthuizen for being offside after the bulls player was clearly holding on at the breakdown? g) Is it just me or is Gardener not up to scratch? h) That said, it seemed like the team was simply not prepared, as if Beast and Jean-Luc – had they not been nursing niggles – would not have made a difference anyway, i) do the Sharks try to save their worst games for Kings Park? You know that if they don’t pull finger, they’re going to lose ugly to the lions and endure something medievally torturous at the hands of the cheating crusaders, j) I have a media strategy for the Sharks for the last game in 2 weeks: don’t say a flipping word, because its just hot air and gives supporters (if I can speak for anyone else) the red ass. Say nothing, don’t make empty promises or platitudes. It’s not believable anymore.

  • Well for my money ginger should go back to 8. Dan is not up to it yet. Keegan in and please please wake up re Reinach. I would take any of the two XV scrummies at this point it cannot be worse than Cobus. April had a lot of pressure I would not throw him away hopefully J L is back and van wyk also along with Am. The guys they will replace are bench options and it’s not like we had many choices due to injury. I’m not ready to write this team off. There are discipline issues and some bone head syndrome nor recognizing the need to change tactics. But other than that the capability is there. So what is with this overblown melodrama? Really.

None if us held any great expectations to reach semi’s. We all knew what this was long ago. I don’t get all the ire. It’s going to be a while before are able to retain good form and be consistently good enough to be more than cc. Now everyone is ready to give up? Youre all correct the guys are nowhere fit and committed enough but that is a goal being worked towards and has been so this whole season. This game has not revealed anything we didn’t already know.

    I thought RdP was the answer, but the evidence is clear to see….SR winning coaches don’t come from Varsity Cup/Club/Voda-Cup/Age Group rugby – they mostly have international experience. (Saders are an anomily).

    A few e-mails from Mitch, and all of a sudden the Bulls were unstoppable – what will our coaching team offer when Mitch is coaching them full time (we’ll get a taste when we play the Saders)

  • @FireTheLooser (Comment 275) : This is what people such as Coolfussion do not comprehend. The Sharks believe that any Tom, Gary and Robert can be given the role and things will miraculously fall into place and we’ll then win SR. When I say Sharks I am also referring to some of the bloggers on this site. SA has lots of raw talent, some may argue the best in the world. The competition now is no longer about which team has the best talent but it is about the brains trust in the various team’s coaching box and offices. It is our amateur coaches or coaches with no track record of doing something special at a very high level i.e. International level that are crippling us, and the inability of CEO’s to understand this is adding fuel to a fire. SA coaches have fallen more behind in terms of coaching skills when compared to NZ. We are still using outdated methods and gameplans which we believe are best. We need to get outside help hopefully from NZ to train our coaches and put sustainable systems thoughout our structures. It worked like a bomb at the Lions and two weeks of emails from Mitch we saw the difference with the Bulls. We need to be united on this and speak the same language and if need be take it up with management. We don’t doubt our coaches work ethic and they can put it all the hours but if they have not been taught something they will not know it. It’s like getting a student that gets A’s in English and math, give him a chemistry book and saying figure this thing out on your own. The student fully understands the language so can read the formulas, he can also reason and is logical hence the A in math. But if he has not been taught chemistry, he will be very average at it. Case in point. Wake up Sharks please.

  • @GreatSharksays (Comment 278) : Well put, and 100% agree.

    @Bokhoring (Comment 280) : RdP does not buy into loose trio balance. Kwagga will be stuck behind the 3 eightmen….same as Keegan, same as Franna Kleinhans (which is probably why Franna left for the Pumas)…

  • @BluffShark (Comment 277) : Agreed. How many opportunities did we just not take, we were kak plain and simple. When the crusaders were the first team to lose against the force they didn’t panic, any given weekend any team can win. They major frustrations fans face is the absolute lack of consistency from a team that has not been terrible this season. Win the big contests, just to fail against dead rubbers the next week. Rdp needs to grow a pair and install discipline, easy as that

  • @FireTheLooser (Comment 281) : In my opinion Dan is also more a SA 7 (like his boet who is a great 7) than an 8, Tera and Ginger are both pretty good 8′s, So I would rephrase as one 7 playing 8, an 8 playing 7 and an 8 playing 6.

  • @jdolivier (Comment 282) : I vote for having the players buy their own jerseys, maybe they’d have the same amount of respect for it as us fans.

    @Bokhoring (Comment 283) : So zero respect for the different requirements of every position on the field….smacks of a coach wanting all his kids in his rugby team. (maybe it’s a harsh statement-but I’m running out of excuses for RdP)

    ….bottom line, affording a SR coach more time have historically not translated into SR success….Ackerman being the exception, though he obtained ample insight from Mitchel during his formative years.

    Question is: Would the Sharks have lost to any of the Rebels (draw, loss – same difference), Kings and Bulls had JW been coach – answer is a resounding no, but the Sharks shunned his level of professionalism that he tried to instill.

  • Beautiful ref try, I mean bulls try after 14 phases 23-13 lost another match due to pitiful coaching and ill disciplined players, fucking pathetic how far the union has fallen, 11min left in the game. Signing out, need to reevaluate if rugby is at all still enjoyable as a sharks supporter

  • Game lost 23-18 with 3 missed conversions, would’ve wine if Keegan knew how to communicate with a ref and if Ben 10 could kick himself out of a cardboard box. Pathetic performance the same as last night. Serious changes have to be made to get all the diva mentality and lack of accountability out the players. No more pride in the union and fuck all commitment from the players. If my language offended anyone, apologies, just sick and tired of this shit

    Sharks rugby is dead. No amount of complaining and venting will change that. People have started showing they displeasure by not going to games and I think that’s the way to go.

    Should have seen it back when he fast-tracked Ben “can’t pass right” 10 to a SR starting spot.

    Just like Nollis, RdP will also not get better with more time….we do however get the added advantage of having all 3 his sons permanently lodged in the starting 15 at the Sharks.

  • @jdolivier (Comment 308) : Far easier defenses to crack at u/18 than at senior rugby. Teams like the Lions have worked hard at honing that type of ball skill at senior rugby. The rest of our unions expect the kids to have that age-group talent automatically translate into senior rugby talent.

  • @FireTheLooser (Comment 310) : Do not agree entirely, currently in the academy there is a player by the name of jp grobler, tall muscular lad, known him since he was 15. Was an amazing 8th man with a sharp pass and a fantastic turn of pace, not a bad side step either. 9 months at the academy and he can only jump and catch a ball in the line out as a lock. All his natural potential has been suppressed. Why do players like Whiteley, Ross cronje, sp Marais, Lionel cronje blossom as soon as they get the freedom to play what is in front of them? Even Lambie sucks ass his first two games back from the books.

    I don’t really know anymore other than what the Sharks once had have left the union….they used to be the rebellious union, against the grain, giving the bird to the establishment – now they’re just trying to keep everyone happy….scared of stepping on toes.

  • I am not sure which of our weekends games saddened me the most. Friday – we just didn’t want to play or Sunday – we were not allowed to play.

    I won’t be surprised if we had nearly 50 penalties against us on Sunday…..

    I hear you, but I think Keegan was just “blown away” with some of the refs interpretations of the rule. I think if those cards against the Bulls were not so obvious, it would not have been f=given.

    but yes I agree, we played against 14 (maybe 15) for a 3/4 of the game and we done nothing.

  • @Salmonoid the Subtle (Comment 317) :

    Personally, I think it is more disappointment than anger. We were very positive with our chances for this weekend – maybe a bit arrogant too. But now we were brought back to earth and our eyes opened.

    and NO I don’t think the Du Preez’s are to be blamed. My opinion is that we lack leadership in the team. Lambie has not “fully” participated in SR since 2014. Steps should have been put in place to “prepare” new leaders for this team. in the absence of that, I fully support the return of Keegan.

    Without leaders stepping, up our season would end in 3 weeks.

    Yes, he was not the “best”, but who in the team played well… and sad to say, I think some of the refs interpretations left room for some debate. I watch Keegan last four (4) games for the Sharks 15 and he played well. We need a leader for the our main team.
