The Sharks head to Newlands on the back of a four match winning streak and a bye week to face a resurgent Western Province team in a battle sure to be entertaining.

Coach Robert du Preez has been forced into some changes for this match, Thomas du Toit and Keegan Daniel not available due to injury and Garth April being left at home due to some disciplinary issues. Which leads me to my main concern – Radebe at fullback. He may be brilliant on attack, but one has to feel some vulnerability on defence.

There is one positive for me, a full front row on the bench. The WP front row is a fomidable one, we will need both sets of these to gain some ascendency up front. For me, if Province get on the front foot and run at the Sharks all night, it might not be a match for too long. Should the Sharks want this match, they will have to win the battle up front and disrupt their pack.

Western Province: 15 Dillyn Leyds, 14 Seabelo Senatla, 13 EW Viljoen, 12 Huw Jones, 11 Ruhan Nel, 10 Damian Willemse, 9 Dewaldt Duvenage, 8 Nizaam Carr, 7 Cobus Wiese, 6 Jaco Coetzee, 5 John Schickerling, 4 Chris van Zyl (captain), 3 Wilco Louw, 2 Siyabonga Ntubeni, 1 Jacobus Janse van Rensburg.

Replacements: 16 Ramone Samuels, 17 Michael Kumbirai, 18 Eddie Zandberg, 19 Stephan de Wit, 20 Justin Phillips, 21 Robert du Preez, 22 Dan Kriel.

Sharks: 15 Inny-Christian Radebe, 14 Kobus van Wyk, 13 Jeremy Ward, 12 Lukhanyo Am, 11 Sibusiso Nkosi, 10 Benhard Janse van Rensburg, 9 Louis Schreuder, 8 Lubabalo Mtembu, 7 Tyler Paul, 6 Jacques Vermeulen, 5 Ruan Botha (captain), 4 Jean Droste, 3 Ross Geldenhuys, 2 Franco Marais, 1 Juan Schoeman.    
   
Replacements: 16 Armand van der Merwe, 17 Mzamo Majola, 18 John-Hubert Meyer, 19 Wian Vosloo, 20 Michael Claassens, 21 Rhyno Smith, 22 Odwa Ndungane.

Referee: Jaco Peyper
Assistant referees: Egon Seconds, Stephan Geldenhuys
TMO: Shaun Veldsman

  • @jdolivier (Comment 2) : Ja, I know we can beat them. It’s about attitude. Just don’t know what to expect, with the SR Sharks teaching me not to get too relaxed, waiting for the other shoe to drop…would be delighted if the Sharks show growing hunger and incremental skill

  • I honestly didn’t think we would win this game. Was worried about our forwards going into it. So really chuffed with the win! Not pretty, but in the last 30 mins there was only one team on the field…a team not keen on finishing and very keen on making mistakes, to be sure…but only one team nonetheless…

  • Well done Rob du Preez you managed to pick the absolute worst replacements, remove your star wing and sub him with the oldest man in rugby today. Also didn’t give us much if a chance with your forwards. Seriously, is he still paying attention? Maybe it would be good to get Dick Muir back into the setup.

  • from the perspective of someone who watched the game from the stands (halfway line, not tough to get good tickets for cc), it looked like we were going to lose this game, we all over us. and many missed opportunities on our side. Eager to watch it over on tv.

    I hope kobus van wyk doesnt have a serious injury. odwa ok on attack by giving me a heart attach on defense.

    Radebe a much better FH than fullback.

    I hope we do get Rob jnr and Zas, as ben and radebe and still learning, and odwa on his way out.

Hopefully rhyno Smith has now convinced rdp he belongs in the team. Glad we have had such a good start to the season, the frustration kicks in when we butcher 4 tries in 10min.

  • @pastorshark (Comment 147) : He did, with deysel set for return soon and Smith adding so much, we need to cut some backline players. Inny has a future for us, when he is on form he is above average, just needs to learn to stay calm and being one of Odwa ndunganes’ biggest fans it hurts to admit, but he is no longer adequate at this level. He tries damn hard and gives everything, just not quick enough anymore, flankers outpace him. He would be more valuable as a mentor or coach. So those two should rest for now

  • @Spirit of Rugby (Comment 158) : Yes 100% correct! Apparently the Cheetahs will use their best available players for the semi-finals and final (if we can manage to sneak in to those)!
    Cheetahs will likely take a squad of 30 players to Europe. They play Ulster the day before the Sharks match and Munster and WP the next weekend!
    That coupled with numerous injuries means the Sharks will be facing a weak Supersport Challenge quality team.

Unlikely they will be getting a lot better than they are now. I don’t think they are on an upward curve. At best it would be a similar result. Our worries have to be pumas and griekwas maybe wp on the outside IF they can sort out a few things. To me lions is as much a threat as bulls are.

    I worry that the management still don’t know what to do with him.Certain that Alistar Coetzee hasn’t a clue and my fear is that he and Venter could prematurely damage Curwin by shoving him into an All Blacks game with Houghaard throwing suicide bombs at him.leaving him exposed to the full force of Kieran Reid and Ardie Savea.

Fred Zeilinga out for another month at least, ditto Neil Marais. Clinton Swart, and Ryno Eksteen also injured. Ernst Stapelberg had an appendix op, so should be ready in two weeks time. So for now we have new boy Robbie Petzer and Cecil Afrika.

  • @revolverocelot (Comment 175) : For this trip Afrika will be back up to Petzer. Think Ernst Stapelberg will be back after the two opening matches in Pro 14. Think Petzer is a better option anyway. I was pleasantly surprised by the composure shown by the young man.

  • @The hound (Comment 178) : Yes, he has grown in stature. I was also impressed with the new flyhallf’s game management. Handling was atrocious at times, but it was positive.

    Young Nkosi is a gem!!

  • @Salmonoid the Subtle (Comment 173) : Winger Odwa Ndungane played the senior role with aplomb and Du Preez had only good words to say of him. “He always plays well, whether he comes off the bench or starts the game, he’s a guy with great experience and is crucial from a leadership point of view.” (from rugby24)

    if we persist with odwa we will not win the comp (sorry, as much as I love him, even wp knew to chip over him and make him turn around, if you see him in person he looks in great shape, but ages has caught up with him and his no longer effective no matter how experience he is. Radebe is in the other end of the spectrum too inexperienced for FB. but a dynamic FH.

    No one has yet referenced our scrum ? I though we really struggled against WP

  • @revolverocelot (Comment 181) : Ha, ha, Odwa has lost a lot of pace – over the last 2 years already. Nothing wrong with his ticker though.

    As far as the scrum I was fairly happy with the way they went but that was because I was expecting us to get monstered. WP definitely had the upper hand but did not manage to force the advantage home. I missed the first 15 minutes but can remember 1 tighthead being won by WP.

  • @Salmonoid the Subtle (Comment 182) : we did give away scrum penulties and short arm penalties early on. thats was a formidable pack from province.

    Feel sorry for scarra, another season ending injury in the cc against the exact same opposition at the same venue, and he looked dangerous in the game.

    WP are well coached their technique at the contact point with ball in hand and defending is good.

    if odwa is the back up to Nkosi and kobus, who else could do it. Sitholes a king now, thus I would go with ilunga, Cele (is he still around), joubert, blewett not ready for cc just yet, anyone else im missing

  • @Salmonoid the Subtle (Comment 182) : I agree with you on the scrums now that I watched the game on tv. live it looked like we were hanging on for dear life at scrum time, but terra and LS controlled it well and our pack stood firm for the most part.

    that kumburia tight head monster from wp is going to be a force in sa rugby though
