  • I don’t say this in jest, however our team seem to like making things difficult for themselves. Slightly easier time of it? Nope. I would be relieved if my concerns about the scrum prove unfounded, delighted if its a try-fest and beside myself if they win.

  • I hope we don’t mess this one up. If we do, we might be in for a long, unpleasant tour. At least one SA team must perform abroad. How good is this Highlanders vs Crusaders game though!

Do they even give a damn about the Sharks jersey, or are they playing purely for the money (or is this a very stupid question) ? There seems to be no pride at all.

  • Brain power sadly lacking in the team.

    Scrums are 50-50, get the ball out and play – rather than trying to dominate with a 3 that is not up to it.

    Keeping throwing the lineout ball to a guy that does not seem comfortable catching today.

    Taking quick taps on your own 22m when you better off getting down field.

    We need to make us of Andre to get us some momentum, but we keep skipping him

  • I have had enough of watching this team. I have seen far worse sharks teams play much better rugby. The fans have been patient but let me tell you that Gary needs to make a call now. JS got a lot of flack from fans but you can’t blame him for lacking ambition. The current coaches are not getting it done it’s time for change. The season is a writw off already so give a new coach the team now so next year he has had some time

  • And to top it off. Super Rugby is one of the elite rugby competitions you get, but we have specialist scrummagers that can’t scrum. Simple passed can’t be caught. Hell, we give away penalties while the ball isn’t even in play. Really poor from the Sharks.

Coach kept our worst player, Terra, on the field for 80mins and took way too long to sub the scrummy that was slowing down our play considerably.

    Looks like we are a mid table team at best.

    Yes its negative , but they just haven’t given me a reason not to be.

If we had his brother and the red head things could have been different. At the moment the loosies don’t offer anything and that constantly has us on the back foot.

  • The level of vitriol here is quite disgusting, the team lost big fucken deal.We lost away from home.First game on tour.
    There is every chance that this team can regroup and put together a better performance next week.
    Our performance wasn’t any worse than the Bulls or Stormers first game on tour this year.
    Now we are screaming for the coaches head.
    These guys were in this game till the end no miracle rally though.
    I thought that the mistakes we made were a shocking loose trio a mediocre performance from Thomas,and the coach subbing Akker too early and leaving the best best back on the bench S’busiso Nkosi,Kobus van Wyk very disappointing all season.
    Chilli is nothing more than a scrum inspector these days and Terra has problems with his knees.
    Wright a much better option than Schreuder who looks too tall upright and fucken slow.
    Hopefully we get it together this week.
    Hopefully we begin to see some value from the expensive signing of Dick Muir.

We are the sharks and expect the best or at the very least some heart when they put on the jersey that we spend money to buy while they get the priveledge to wear it and get paid doing it! So BIG DEAL buddy. As for the coach please explain why he should stay exactly? What on earth has he accomplished as a coach and more importantly what has he accomplished at the sharks!? Losing is a big fucking habit in the environment he is responsible for as our head coach.
    If u calling for him to stay then back up Ur argument without compering us to the other south African teams.

    I didn’t like the idea of his appointment from day one and said as much, but he was our coach so I backed him to come right but he hasn’t and now it’s time for him to fuck off

The amount of hot air coming from them and no improvement is the factor here. Build, build, build and a lot of Sharks fans won’t care too much about losses but it’s plainly going backwards week by week and that’s finally on the coaching staff.

    Some of us have stuck with this team for years through much worse losses than 6 points.
    I have realised one thing in the many years i have supported this team, its very easy to support a winning team, but the real supporters are the ones who back the team when they are down.

I have never been one to negatively comment on this site, but you are very naive thinking that ‘ losing by 6 points’ in matter they did is acceptable. It was an utter pathetic performance with none of the characteristics you believe in such as palying for the jersey and history of this team. I am surely not supporting the Sharks because I want them to be mediocre at best, I want us to win silverware.

    And again you have not backed up why he should stay all you are doing is going on about the margin of loss and how it’s not so bad and you don’t even see the problem with that argument.

  • @McLovin (Comment 177) : nah, win by 2 points – and Stormers beat Blues so maybe puts a little perspective on our Sharks loss

  • @Poisy (Comment 174) : So last week when we scored 50 points against the Sunwolves,who was responsible for that,
    The great Lions ,only managed to scrape home against the team we hammered a week ago and at altitude on the Highveldt as well, but one week later we are already shite and washed up.
    I thought the Brumbies played very well today.,and it was certain players who let the Sharks down not the coaching staff,
    Any way couldn’t really give a fuck what you think,but i will respect your right to have an opinion.

  • @The hound (Comment 182) : I agree in part, said before the game, that the Sunwolves have recruited well, and would be more difficult to beat. They harried the Sharks for most of the match. As you say, look what they did to the Lions.

    My concern was, that the Sunwolves didn’t convert their territory into points, and I said, that better teams would expose this. This is exactly what happened vs the Brumes. Sharks pack, is the problem. No recognised tightwad, and no power in the looses without the twins and vd Walt.

  • Let’s not compare the lions sunwolves game. They camped on the sharks tryline. If they we’re better at finishing that week (like they we’re against the lions) that flattering scoreline would have been way different. And the resulting pressure would have influenced the final outcome. So let’s not pat ourselves on the back because they couldn’t seal the deal.

  • @coolfusion (Comment 185) : What crap explain how this shite Sharks team scored 50 points against the same Sun wolves, or was every point gifted to us by them.
    How many teams have scored 50 points this season?
    The fact is as you point out the Sharks defence kept them from scoring that game
    So attack was brilliant and defence superb.

  • @coolfusion (Comment 184) : Presumably because he is the coach who happens to have 3 sons in the team he is coaching. The fact that all 3 of them are really talented players should take nothing away from the perceived nepotism that is taking place. Me I would rather have those 3 playing on my team than against. Hell WP with just one of those 3 was too much to handle.

  • @Byron Wright (Comment 176) : Don’t make statements like that without backing it up.If you have evidence share it.
    Don’t think there is a team in the entire rugby world who wouldn’t welcome any one of, never mind all three of those boys.

  • @coolfusion (Comment 189) : Unfortunately I tried very hard to follow your jumbled logic, this is how I interpreted what you are saying.Sharks beat Sun wolves because Sunwolves couldn’t penetrate Sharks defence because Sunwolves attack was so poor that they camped on Sharks try line the whole game.
    What that means is Sharks defence held where it counted most, if this was a 2 point game you could probably make a case for that but it wasn’t it rained trys down the other end.

  • @coolfusion (Comment 189) : And our defense was not that great their inability to finish and their handling undid them on the line several times. If our defense was that good these guys would not have spent this time on our goal line. We would have stopped them before 22.

  • @The hound (Comment 190) : These are the two stats from the match against the Sunwolves that does concern me: 44% possession and 37% territory – at home. Do that against a Kiwi team and it will turn out really ugly indeed.

  • @The hound (Comment 199) : Jamie Joseph?

    Sharks still managed to put together some pieces of play to put together 50 (and a bonus point) against these guys – which was good. However this team was 18th out of 18 in 2016 and 17th out of 18 in 2017. Not the team that should dominate possession and territory against a Sharks team at home that wants to at least make the semi-finals.

    I do however admire the never say die attitude of these guys, some slick back line moves, good interplay. Very positive and entertaining team to watch
