Bosch asked to step up in Joburg

Just like he did the last time the Sharks faced the Lions in Johannesburg, 20-year-old Curwin Bosch will wear the number 10 jersey for Saturday’s crunch quarter-final clash against the high-riding Lions.

Sharks coach Robert du Preez has made just a single change to the side that failed to really make much of an impact against the Lions in Durban last weekend, with Bosch and Garth April trading places. We felt it was an odd call to back April to start in the previous game and a lack of length on clearing kicks was among a number of problems that conspired against the Sharks that day, making any form of meaningful exit under pressure seem impossible. Bosch will need to man up on defence in this game, but I’m sure his educated and considerably bigger boot will ahve been a big factor in the decision to start him this time around.

A late call will be made regarding the fitness of Franco Marais, after suffering a bad concussion against the Bulls three weeks ago. Marais has been bracketed with Stephan Coetzee on the bench and with the latter battling with basics last time out, fans will be hoping that “Frank the Tank” recovers in time for the game.

There’s still no Beast Mtawarira this week, meaning Philip van der Walt leads an unchanged forward pack into the clash.

Sharks: 15 Lwazi Mvovo, 14 Kobus van Wyk, 13 Lukhanyo Am, 12 Andre Esterhuizen, 11 Sibusiso Nkosi, 10 Curwin Bosch, 9 Cobus Reinach, 8 Daniel du Preez, 7 Jean-Luc du Preez, 6 Philip van der Walt (captain), 5 Stephan Lewies, 4 Etienne Oosthuizen, 3 Coenie Oosthuizen, 2 Chiliboy Ralepelle, 1 Thomas du Toit.
Replacements: 16 Franco Marais/Stephan Coetzee, 17 Juan Schoeman, 18 Lourens Adriaanse, 19 Jean Droste, 20 Tera Mtembu, 21 Michael Claassens, 22 Garth April, 23 Jeremy Ward.

  • Strong starting lineup, not convinced about match winners on the bench. Might as well go balls to the wall on this one…wish I knew which Sharks would rock up.

  • The trio will struggle to keep up with the Kwagga and Kriel – so IMO the Sharks should go with attacking close to the forwards. Taking them on out wide prematurely will just result in turnover ball.

    @SeanJeff (Comment 1) : Agreed but i also feel the tactic with April starting was on purpose. We didnt want to travel to Christchurch after a month off then 2 games with a break inbetween

    Wish we could get Frans Steyn back at10 or12 0r 15, he seems want to come home and its worth noting he hasn’t followed Jake to Japan.

  • The Sharks will have to something more on attack besides one off runners into contact if they have any hope of winning. I Still think the Lions will need to be off form quite a bit to lose this one. Sharks have done stranger things in the past though. Handling and first time tackles will determine the outcome here…

  • @robdylan (Comment 10) : So you’re more upset with the way he has been treated by the Sharks, and that they have not attempted to bring him back? He has been out of the 15s game since 2015, with just a few appearances for the Lions SuperSport Challenge team. I have always been a huge Kanko supporter, but since he has been out, he needs to show me that he still has it. I wish him all the best, but in all honesty, I am more comfortable with Keegan at 8 and Captain of our CC team, but I wish Kanko all the best.

    Remember that Kanko was a dismal failure as a flank, he is an out and out 8, and we have Ginger, Dan, and Keegan whom I would much rather have for the Sharks. We seriously do not need another 8.

  • @Dunx (Comment 9) : Kanko had superb form in his early years, he was better than Spies, but could not get a look in from the Boks. His form only suffered once he signed with the Japanese team, he was never the same after that.

  • @SheldonK (Comment 12) : Support of the ball carrier will be paramount regardless, but with our bigger but slower loosies it will be better to give them a decent chance to be in support.

    I would like us to use AE, Van Wyk and Nkosi a lot more as well, but with some proper support. Stupid that we have a strong fast runner like Nkosi and he has to wait 32 minutes before he gets to touch the ball.

  • The article link if for the demolition job the Sharks schools did on SWD schools today, I have never been so excited with our young talent as this year, and one most not overlook the part played by the coach, this is a very well drilled team and play like the Lions or Kiwi teams do, fantastic to see.

  • Key Points in the match
    1. Scrums – Last week the Sharks 1st choice front row dominated the Lions 1st choice front row but after they went off the Lions took control. The longer the Sharks can keep their 1st choice front row on the better for them because they can win penalties and with the deadly accurate Bosh the Sharks can get some easy 3 points and put pressure on the Lions, furthermore the Lions score a lot of tries through first phase ball. Nullify us in the scrums and Sharks can built pressure, but if the Lions can hold the Sharks in the scrum it will make it a long day for the Sharks
    2. Bosh’s defense – You have to expect Jantjies and Vorster to have a go at Bosh. So far this year he made 21 tackles and missed 14 (that is a mere 60% tackle success rate) while Jantjies is far more involved in defense by making 86 tackles and missing 28 (that is a 75% tackle success rate). The hard hitting Andre Esterhuizen on his outside will play a huge part in defense (made 88 and missed only 9 for a 90% tackle success rate)
    3. Open Play – It is no secret that the Lions can attack from any where on the field. The Lions are one of the teams that run the most and kick the least while the Sharks are kicking more than running. The key here will be smart kicking. The line outs will be a gamble without Ruan Botha to disrupt the Lions ball so if the Sharks kick, they should make sure the ball is out and that the Lions cannot take a quick throw or that you kick balls that can be contested and won back. With Andries Coetzee, Courtnal Skosan and Ruan Combrink at the back, the Lions have a strong, quick and deadly counter attacking unit from the back.
    4. Home field advantage – The Lions have made Ellis Park (Or Emirates Airline Park) a fortress over the last 4 years since re-admission into Super Rugby In fact, they won 26 of their last 33 games at home (79%) and are currently on a 13 match home winning streak, a 12 match winning streak, a 14 match winning streak against SA opposition (16 match unbeaten) and a 5 match winning streak against the Sharks. The Lions last home loss was back in April 2016 against the Hurricanes and the Lions last SA loss was against the Bulls in May 2015. History does favour the Lions but on the other hand, the Sharks have got nothing to lose going into this game. Maybe with the freedom of no expectations, the Sharks can let lose and play to their potential.

    All and all I believe this game will be much closer than people think it will be. The game will be won in the last 10 minutes of the game and defense will win this game. May the best team win.

  • Rugby 365 has an interesting comparison between the two (2) teams.http://www.rugby365.com/tournaments/super-rugby/80260-preview-lions-v-sharks

    Maybe we all might place our Superbru predictions here prior to the game.

    My prediction is that we would won with 3 points.

  • @pastorshark (Comment 75) : Ja not too attached to him starting. But vd walt is being wasted for no good reason. Should maybe have been Keegan, JldP and vd Walt as you say. I’m not subscring to the nepotism theory but I struggle to see what keeps Dan ahead of Ninja. And what keeps him in the starting pack instead of Keegan.

  • @Mutley (Comment 64) : Don’t forget about Lewies – Sharks managed to steal a couple of lineouts on Saturday. It would have been better to have both Lewies and Botha competing though.

  • @coolfusion (Comment 78) : Fair comment…I also don’t buy into the nepotism thing at all, but would have preferred to see Ginger at 8 in a reshuffled trio in the last few weeks. I do think that since we didn’t reshuffle our loose trio earlier this is not the game to do it now…

  • Canes in semi. Would have been a travesty had they lost to the brumbies.
