  • Nervous but there’s been enough talking by players and coaches about how this is a new Sharks team. Played well against the Lions apart from the scrums so let’s sort that out and give our backs great ball.

    Nothing other than a win will suffice today.

  • Do people still live in Durban, no one at the rugby, no body at the cricket, maybe time to move the Sharks to CT stadium?

But they are still human. I have no doubt that they too are disappointed, hurting and angry. Get behind the coach, get behind the captain, get behind the team. B&W, we live to fight another day.

    Glad our scrums looked good today, so when we had a short arm penalty thanks to a tah knock on should have taken that opertunity to scrum down instead of run like crazy people breaking up our own defensive line.

    disappointed but encourage at the same time if there is such a thing.

  • @coolfusion (Comment 189) : thats what I had hoped abd then keegs lost the plot.

    Bosch not finding touch shades of frans steyn in the sr final, these tahs thrive in loose play, why did we give it too them.

    glad to see we seem to have attacking intent but a degree of control and taking kickable penalties is a good way to balance things

    we sort of play like a lesser saders team now, only we cant get ahead by more than one score

    we let the tahs back in 4 times in one game

    Aker played well though

    Hyron was decent off the bench, tackles we solid, seems to have also gotten bigger

    much too work on guys, kill the sunwolves next week.
