Currie Cup 2017 Semi-final: Sharks v Blue Bulls

A cracker awaits us in Durban today, with the table-topping Sharks hosting the fourth-placed, but red hot, Blue Bulls.

Will Rob du Preez and his team bounce back after a lacklustre display against Western Province last week, when they lost for the first time in 11 outings? It would seem almost unfathomable that the team that has led throughout the round-robin stage could fail to progress to the final, but John Mitchell appears to have finally ignited some sort of creative spark in this young Bulls team and they’re certainly showing the ability to score tries aplenty.

Defence, though, is the other aspect to this contest and while the Sharks have typically been very good at stopping tries, the Bulls boast a less enviable record in this regard. With the visitors having conceded a remarkable 61 tries over the previous 12 rounds (against the Sharks’ paltry 29) and boasting a net points difference of just 15, one would fancy that the opportunities will be there for the Sharks, if their experienced men can guide the team to play the way they’ve done all season.

Kick-off is rather early, at 14h30 SA time. Don’t miss this one.

Sharks: 15 Garth April, 14 Kobus van Wyk, 13 Lukhanyo Am, 12 Marius Louw, 11 Sibusiso Nkosi, 10 Curwin Bosch, 9 Louis Schreuder, 8 Daniel du Preez, 7 Jean-Luc du Preez, 6 Keegan Daniel, 5 Ruan Botha (captain), 4 Tyler Paul, 3 Ross Geldenhuys, 2 Franco Marais, 1 Thomas du Toit.
Replacements: 16 Akker van der Merwe, 17 Juan Schoeman, 18 John-Hubert Meyer, 19 Jean Droste, 20 Jacques Vermeulen, 21 Michael Claassens, 22 Tristan Blewett, 23 Odwa Ndungane.

Blue Bulls: 15 Warrick Gelant, 14 Travis Ismaiel, 13 Burger Odendaal (captain), 12 JT Jackson, 11 Johnny Kotze, 10 Marnitz Boshoff, 9 Ivan van Zyl, 8 Nic de Jager, 7 Tim Agaba, 6 Marco van Staden, 5 Aston Fortuin/Jannes Kirsten, 4 Ruben van Heerden, 3 Conraad van Vuuren, 2 Edgar Marutlulle, 1 Pierre Schoeman.
Replacement: 16 Johan Grobbelaar, 17 Lizo Gqoboka, 18 Jannes Kirsten/Eli Snyman, 19 Jano Venter, 20 Piet van Zyl, 21 Tony Jantjies, 22 Duncan Matthews, 23 John-Roy Jenkinson.

  • Out of curiosity, did we get to choose a preferred kick off time and if we did, surely the 5pm would have been a bit better? Or not?

  • This is what we should have done last week. Get into their 22 use that massive forwards strength get close and break them down with the 1st and second channel. Not running from deep and get caught in your own red zone.

  • @sudhir (Comment 98) : Ja I dunno hey. I was a big supporter of his a while back but then the news of ill discipline and his game fell apart, like his ego is too big imo. He needs to be shown the door to be honest.

  • @byron (Comment 104) : let’s be honest my 89 year old granny has more commitment on defence than April, the sad thing is that when he starts running he can be so amazing

  • To each his own, but April had an average, but not a bad game. Did what he had to, making few errors. I’ll take that in a semi, not everyone can be a match winner every game.

  • When you don’t have the ball you make your tackles. I saw April trying to touch the Bulls instead of tackling them. Correct me if I am wrong but he didn’t make any tackle in the game. Was responsible for the 3 bull tries cause he was the last line of defence. I saw 22 sharks put their bodies on the line except for our number 15! We played with 14 men and 1 bystander.
