  • Is it too much of the fans to expect a win at home? Apologies to lions fans but they had their SR shot and won games they shouldn’t have against the Sharks and others. You had your shot. This is Kings Park, not some little school boy rugby ground. Sharks need to make a statement that if you dare venture to Kings park you stand a good chance of getting messed up.

  • If you can’t be proud of this then you have no place being a shark.

  • Great victory and top spot done with one game left!!! Awesome guys!!!
    But tonight something a bit of topic impressed me again. How awesome is the drainage of the field!!!! For a second week in a row heavy rain fell but the field remained in “perfect” playing condition!!! No water or mud puddles and also no churning up of grass when the big boys scrummed!!! Geez the white jerseys and shorts remained (mostly) white for the whole game!!! So from me a huge congrats to the ground staff and who ever designed the drainage systems!!! Well done lads and may it stay like this for a long time!!!

  • Good win Sharks. Home semi-final assured. Job done. Pity the Cheetahs spoiled the season undefeated scenario.

  • @KingCheetah (Comment 125) : More like SARU spoilt it by having competitions overlap – there was never a chance that the Cheetahs could or would lose that game.

  • @Salmonoid the Subtle (Comment 126) : That much is true. Same holds true for the Cheetahs having to compete in two tournaments simultaneously

  • @Salmonoid the Subtle (Comment 128) : I think it is already. Younger players that would ysually be playing in the u21 tournament have had to step up and play CC. Also fringe players that usually play in the lower tier competitions, like the Supersport Challenge are playing CC, and getting a chance to strutt their stuff.
    All to the benefit of Cheetahs rugby in the long run.

  • @KingCheetah (Comment 127) : @Salmonoid the Subtle (Comment 128) : must complement the Cheetahs on their performance! After a very difficult start to the Pro14 they’re now up there with the best and competing for 1-2 on the log!!! Currie cup team also not to bad!!!
