  • Why are we using the box kick as our exit when we have a kicker like Bosch?

  • The only thing worse than the brainlessness of our attack is the cluelessness of our defence. :roll:

    And just as I say this Am scores :lol:

  • @The hound (Comment 28) : Thomas really putting in some good runs though. Possession, line/tackle breaks, penalties won, we lead with most of the stats, and it reflects on the scoreboard.

    Anyone else notice(hard not to) the loud siren going off when Rob kicks for poles? Very unsportsmanlike from their fans.

  • As shit as this ref is, why did we simply allow them ruck after ruck in their 22 until they found space on the left to break out??

  • @Bokhoring (Comment 101) : Very dubious penalties at the end in favour of the canes. In the last 10min 4 of their players just got up after being tackled and just kept going. Great show by the boys

  • It’s not like we haven’t seen this before. There are so many expletives going through my head but what can we do, the short answer is nothing. I’ll watch those last 7 minutes when I get home though and then get really pissed…

  • It’s enough to make me not even bother watching because how how how can a team win going off biased calls. I don’t give a fuck if someone says life’s not fair, it’s a damn professional sport, fairness is all anyone wants ffs :evil:

  • Sharks can feel proud as all biltong, they really gave their all for us and it’s appreciated. That was your win guys, Canes should have points stripped imo and ref should be banned like players are. Over it.

  • Canes keep taking out Sharks defenders all evening – nothing. Ginger takes out a Canes pillar – penalty. Botha grabs a ball at a ruck – penalty. Canes come over ruck and grabs ball from Cam – penalty Canes.

    Totally inconsistent

  • Victory in defeat, one of the best Sharks performance ever.
    This was the Hurricanes at home ,and they needed an Aussie sand paper merchant to win it for them.
    Any of the ridiculous comments about our defence coach this week, look pretty lame now.
    Thought that our kicking not only at posts but,Bosch’s kick offs put us in another league.
    Well done Braam.

  • As I haven’t watched the game, but rather read it and if the ref was really that crap, it’s going to be fun reading Robs follow up article whilst he attempts to remove his true feelings regarding the officiating.

  • @Bokhoring (Comment 119) : I know yeah, it has me gutted and I’m just a supporter! As long as the team knows what they achieved and what it means to their fans and that it was a blatant cheat who stole their victory, they can go places. Don’t let the negative bullshit get into your heads, focus on the positives of which there were many

  • @The hound (Comment 120) : As much as the performance was good e have conceded 1 tries in 2 games, hardly anythign for the defense coach to be proud of. That said these last 2 games on tour have shown very promising aspects of the Sharks play, now can they continue it when they get back to Kings Park is the question…

  • You could tell as soon as the second half started that the ref was pushing for a canes victory, what’s the point in saying the sharks missed opportunities, cause every team always misses opportunities. That was a total stitch up

  • @Mephisto_Shark (Comment 123) : Blatant cheating can have a demoralizing effect. You put everything into it, feel that you deserve it 100% and then you lose because the ref told you to.

  • @robdylan (Comment 125) : Did you miss the New Zealand commentators raving about the Sharks massive defence, thiis Hurricanes team ihas the best attack record in the competition ,maybe you missed it they are on the top of the log with 23 points.and most of their games have been against other New Zealand teams.
    Hell what a game .
    Give credit where its dues sick of the constant negative niggling on this site.

  • @RuckingFun (Comment 126) : Agreed. Could clearly see a difference in the 2nd half from him. What’s frustrating is that even if they review his performance and suspend him for it, the result will still stand.

  • @The hound (Comment 128) : I for one am very happy about our progress. We played a game – that very few gave us a chance in at all – with a lot of enterprise and commitment. We outplayed the Competition favourites for most of the game, created chances, scored tries and looked good in a lot of areas. Yes, we also left chances out there and didn’t have the accuracy and composure to benefit from a five minute period where we should have scored three times and instead didn’t score at all. But despite that we would still have won the gone but for…shall I say “matters beyond our control.” I am disappointed that we didn’t close it out despite that, I’m peeved about more lost points…but I am,super chuffed about all the positive developments in our play and looking forward to the rest of the season.
    I also think the Sharks need to hear from us supporters that we love what we’re seeing!!! Go Sharks!!

  • @pastorshark (Comment 130) : From your lips to God’s ears.
    We won’t face a harder game than this the whole year,-and you put that in the memory bank its a potent motivator.
    Players left everything out there today and we still can get better,
    Add Dan to the mix and if we keep Jean luc and Andre Eesterhuizen fit , withguys like Akker,Beast,Thomas all firing this could still be the dream team.
