Bosch gets the week off

Curwin Bosch, having been left out of the Springbok touring squad yesterday, will also not feature for the Sharks this weekend.

According to coach Robert du Preez, Bosch missed both Monday and Tuesday training sessions and will thus not be considered for the match against the Cheetahs this weekend. That means another start likely for Benhard Janse van Rensburg in the pivot slot.

There could be a change though, as Rhyno Smith could come into contention for the fullback role, freeing up Inny Radebe as potential pivot.

The Cheetahs are going to send a B team onto park against the Sharks with their A team making their Pro14 debut this weekend. A weakened team in the Currie Cup could mean that they relinquish their spot atop the log with their dual commitments at the time.

The Sharks team is set to be announced tomorrow.

  • Good call to give Curwin the week off, I know he hasnt played much but he also hasnt practicesed with the team yet this week and he may be a bit travel weary.

  • @Salmonoid the Subtle (Comment 2) : Yes, no need to rush him back. If Pollard remains fit, we will probably have Bosch with us for rest of the CC. Will be nice to have him back though!

  • @Salmonoid the Subtle (Comment 2) : Yes this is the mature call, we will be facing cheetahs B (though I still suspect they will put up a fight) and its best to have Ben start at fh again as he played well against wp before going off with a knock. I just hope that inny starts on the bench to cover FH, his not the best at FB, hopefully ryno if fit enough to start at FB.

    I hope we have bosch for the rest of the cc, but im not sure we will as if one of jantjies or pollard goes down he will be called back, unless dylan gets picked as a FH, we are low on fh depth at national level.

    interesting note: having been at newlands last week I rewatched the game last night via supersport, its amazing how you pick up different things at the stadium and miss others, same thing with watching on tv. there are pros and cons to both. for example, at the stadium it looked like every scrum wp were very close to destroying us, but on tv we looked reasonably competitive, weird. and in the stadium it seemed like all of the second half at any moment we could get caught by a wp counter attack (that never came)

    So tell us truthfully, what are your views on Curwin being released from the Boks and Pollard taking his spot? :twisted:

  • I personally think Pollalrd is a good player but hasnt played in ages so will only end up getting injued if he managaes to eveb get fit enough for a game. I also think that Bosch will play many games for the Boks but needs to dominate the flyhalf berth at the Sharks now, let othrs play fb. Bosch has already had a world cup and super rugby season so i think the CC would be best for him to keep learning his trade at 10. It ws a complete wasts of time playing those SA A games if the guys that played there arent given a chance at the Boks whne injuries etc occur

  • @SheldonK (Comment 29) : AC has never prioritized player health above his own interests and gains. Besides he is nervous. His revival bok team is about to be really tested and he can once again be showed up. Until now the competition hasn’t been very tough.

  • @SheldonK (Comment 29) : Only comparable player to Bosch in rugby today is Damien McKenzie in terms age ,size talent and potential.and at the moment the new Zealanders would never play him at 10.
    We should take a leaf out of their book,Bosch is a 15,best for a long time.

  • @The hound (Comment 31) : I can really foresee another Lambie situation developing with Bosch. I think the Sharks will more than likely play him at 10 and therefore i say thats where he must stay and make it as a 10. If its at 15 where the Sharks choose to play him then so be it but then stick to 15. Going to be interesting with McKenzie as it seems the Chiefs want to play him at 10 but All Blacks see him as a 15

  • @SheldonK (Comment 32) : As brilliant as McKenzie is he isn’t better than either Barrettt brother at 10 or15 he will end up playing the Brent Russell bench riding perfect utility back role-play 60 tests off the bench maximum of 10 minutes a game.This is exactly the role Coetzee would want for Curwinasnone of his preferred 10′s can cover 15 in an emergency and none of his 15′s can cover 10.

  • @The hound (Comment 33) : Yeh very possible. Still reckon guys like Lionel Cronje and even Zelinga who played in the SA A side are a bit hard done by not even getting a sniff in the squad. Pollard should be playing a full CC to get him back and firing before next year. I can bet he will be injured again before the end of rugby championship.
