Finally a game in our neighbourhood (or close enough). The Sharks will be taking on the Bulls at Ashton College in Ballito on Saturday at 2pm. The cost is R20 per adult and R10 per child.

The Sharks will look to give their stars who rested last week a chance to stretch their legs and workout the rust in a game situation.

Let’s give the boys our support and head to Ballito.

  • @Bokhoring (Comment 2) : Id only change the locks as i think what Andrews offers at lineout time is a big plus.

  • @Bokhoring (Comment 2) : Rob did say it will mostly be the players that will likely start against the Wolves but Mapimpi is a outside bet as he may not play this game as he has a niggle and may start away to the sunwolves or at least be in the travelling group that leave

    It amazes me sometimes how teams take so little injury cover on these long trips, its still unclear how Super Rugby stipulates how many players can travel. I suspect SA team my also be trying to reduced costs, I’m not saying send the whole squad just take reasonable cover.

    Also whats strange about SA teams is that they send their first team on these once off games to ARG or the wolves, win the game, and then play almost the exact same team the next week at home or in Aus/NZ, instead of rotation out the jet lagged guys.

    Alternately they send a second team to play the Jags or the Wolves, and lose, why is it that the second team can almost never pull off a win.

    thus as much as I like the idea of squad rotation i Kinda understand why SA and Aus teams don’t

    We do have some promising player in the u21 and u19 setup that could break through

  • @Julesgr8ter (Comment 7) : Bosch at 10 again wonder if he will rest Rob for a couple extra weeks.

    I really don’t think Botha can play 4. He can compete with andrews at 5 but he isnt a good 4
