Rinse and repeat for Ellis Park?

While there are still two weeks to go ahead of the Super Rugby opener against the Lions at Ellis Park on 17 February, Sharks coach Robert du Preez may just have found himself in a very fortunate position ahead of that game. On the back of two impressive pre-season wins, the former Bok scrumhalf could just be forgiven if his current thinking is to change absolutely nothing ahead of that first crunch clash.

While it’s of course foolish to ignore the step-up in intensity required when facing a Super Rugby finalist at home (compared to, say, a second-string French team in a game that means little) the reality is that you can’t really make any accurate, form-based selection decisions this early in the season. Reality is, du Preez has no real chance of predicting what sort of challenge the Lions will present and could certainly do worse than back his in-form players to go out and do the same job they did in Hong Kong.

While the team that took the field on Saturday is not quite the strongest the Sharks can field at this stage, it has to be pretty close. We do not know why Beast Mtawarira, Daniel du Preez and Michael Claassens did not travel with the squad but since I’m not aware of any injury concerns there, I’d imagine all three would be able to play a role at Ellis Park if called on. Of those three, perhaps only Beast Mtawarira (in for Juan Schoeman) is a change that should really be considered. The rest of the tight five surely picks itself, but it’s at loose forward, as ever, that du Preez is going to have to juggle, particularly if he wants to make space for son Daniel.

Philip van der Walt, Jacques Vermeulen and Keegan Daniel were all very good in Hong Kong, with the latter in particular proving his worth in virtually every facet of play. Tyler Paul will, I’m sure, be deployed as reserve lock, but the coach still has to solve the “five into four” problem as he figures out what to do with the new Springbok. Dropping Tera Mtembu might seem logical, but he too played a very important role in Hong Kong and is a player that surely deserves better.

Cameron Wright has certainly done enough to earn a start at scrumhalf and if Claassens is fit, he’d be a sensible deputy, given Grant Williams’ greenness at senior level. Robert du Preez Junior did well enough at flyhalf to warrant a start, but it’s in midfield that things get tricky. Marius Louw, frankly, is in superb form, but the temptation must surely be to bring Andre Esterhuizen back in for the Lions clash, provided he’s in decent nick after a long Japanese stint. I’d not tinker at all with the back three that started in Hong Kong, with Makezole Mapimpi perhaps just shading Sbu Nkosi (although it’s a tight one).

Figuring out how to select just two backline reserves when all of Curwin Bosch, Louw/Esterhuizen, Jeremy Ward and Nkosi all deserve a spot is going to be tough indeed. If I were du Preez, I might go with a lineup something like the following:

Sharks (possible): 15 Lwazi Mvovo, 14 Kobus van Wyk, 13 Lukhanyo Am, 12 Marius Louw, 11 Makezole Mapimpi, 10 Roert du Preez, 9 Cameron Wright, 8 Keegan Daniel, 7 Jacques Vermeulen, 6 Philip van der Walt, 5 Stephan Lewies, 4 Ruan Botha(capt), 3 Thomas du Toit, 2 Franco Marais, 1 Beast Mtawarira.
Subs: 16 Chiliboy Ralepelle, 17 Juan Schoeman, 18 John-Hubert Meyer, 19 Tyler Paul, 20 Daniel du Preez, 21 Michael Claassens, 22 Curwin Bosch, 23 Sbu Nkosi

  • It’s good to see that the Sharks are prepared to give the ball to the backline (and that it actually reaches the wingers) for a change. The Mapimpi signing looks like a better decision with each game passing. He might just turn out to play a key role in the Sharks 2018 season.

    Hopefully the 4 centers get managed very well as it is a long season.

  • is there any highlights available somewhere? I had to sit in Oudtshoorn in 40 degrees watching kids run around the track. Would love to see the highly spoken about handling.

    Sounds like Mvovo also on form and continuing his fullback dazzles. Was his highball issues related to confidence? I cant remember him having those issues at SR level before

  • Considering that at this stage the Lions will be the favourite SA team to lead the SA charge then we have to play our strongest team possible and really push for an away win which could put us in a very healthy position come the final weeks of the season

  • Pretty reasonable team but with Nkosi only really a specialist wing he may not be included on the bench and someone like Ward may be or even Esterhuizen.

  • I thought Mapimpi was average on defence. At least Nkosi is excellent on defence, so in my opinion, Nkosi pips it for a starting position.

  • Good team selection @robdylan! Louw is playing really well…and is a lot quicker than Esterhuizen. Though AE is a monster on defense and has a good left boot for exists…suppose Mvovo can fill that gap. Would still use AE as an impact player to get over the gain line, bruise some defending bodies. RDP junior still looks a bit shaky @10… This year the squad looks really good, great competition in almost every position. Know it was just warm-up games…but haven’t felt so excited for the Sharks Super Rugby campaign in a while! 2018 may be our year… :mrgreen:

  • @jakkalas (Comment 12) : Maybe playing Mapimpi as an impact player is not a bad thing even if it is to just give the guy a bit of a rest while still being available to do the damage if needed. The guy has been playing full on rugby for a year now.

  • @robdylan (Comment 19) : Beat the Lions first up at Ellis Park and watch the doubt start setting in, amongst fans and players. Wouldnt be a problem if Ackerman was still there and they lost their first game but with him gone the pressure is going to be De Bruin. The poor Currie Cup they had wont have helped their psyche either.

  • @robdylan (Comment 21) : I only have 1 concern now after the CC and seeing the warm-ups and that is at TH, Yes Tank will do fine but what if he gets injured and also what if he gets subbed? like on the weekend our reserves took a hammering in the scrums.

  • @sharks_lover (Comment 24) : jeez mate. I think there were at most 2 bad scrums against a 400kg front row. I’m not sure we need to throw our reserve props away just yet. Maybe go have a look again. Like the final scrum under our posts where those same props actually did a very good job of holding the French pack at bay.

  • @sharks_lover (Comment 22) : the question is not based on a single game. Both Tank and Ross has been on receiving ends of good hammering. Ross in CC and Tank in prev switch period. Tank does not have a pure power issue, far from it, and I am just questioning if there has been a significant technical investment. TH is always described as the most technical and difficult position on the park. We primarily lost the CC due to scrum being demolished.

    I am hoping and of believe that Tank can and will become the monster the Sharks and Boks sorely need

  • A tricky first game for the Lions given some of the injuries.

    With Combrinck and Skosan does Swys throw in the rookies (Tambwe and Dyantyi) or go with experience (Mapoe and Mahuza). Kriel will also still be out for another 2 to 3 weeks at least.

    Lions probable: 15 Andries Coetzee, 14 Sylvian Mahuza, 13 Harold Vorster, 12 Rohan Janse van Rensburg, 11 Lionel Mapoe, 10 Elton Jantjies, 9 Ross Cronje, 8 Warren Whiteley, 7 Cyle Brink, 6 Kwagga Smith, 5 Franco Mostert, 4 Lourens Erasmus, 3 Ruan Dreyer, 2 Malcolm Marx, 1 Dylan Smith
    16 Robbie Coetzee, 17 Corne Fourie, 18 Jacques van Rooyen, 19 Marvin Orie, 20 Hacjivah Dayimani, 21 Marco Jansen van Vuren, 22 Shaun Reynolds, 23 Howard Mnisi

  • Excellent team Rob, and agree wholeheartedly.

    I think its really good that players who would of been considered 2nd or 3rd in line for a position are really staking their claim and making the coach have some serious headaches, examples from the Hong Kong game being: Wright, Louw and Daniel in particular.

    Most of the player movements apart from the documented wings that left, will only be after Pro 14. Still waiting to see how good Rabs Maxwane is. Jaer, and Barry have shown good promise. Pack still fairly well settled, and our main concern was replacing the wings we lost

    But on a serious note, good luck Pieter de Villiers, I really hope you can have an impact on Zim rugby and can in some small or big way help them to start regaining the status they once had.

    For those that didn’t catch it here it is https://twitter.com/i/web/status/960590029767749632

    I reckon they could do worse than to let him loose on the Boks before kickoff and again at half time. If he cant motivate them then nobody will.

    I remember Beckerling from a few years back terrorizing the UKZN Impi in a play off game. Damn good player, surprised some “bigger” varsity hasnt picked him up yet.

One the one hand the get guys like Jake and Eddie not to mention some NZ guys, then they go and recruit AC. I mean picking the best and then pulling in someone who must surely have the lowest standing of all his peers in the international scene. These few years could not have been good for his reputation and ratings. Japs seem to all over the spectrum when splashing for coaches.
