Teams for Sharks – Bulls rematch


Written by Henk Terblanche (Bokhoring)

Posted in :Super Rugby on 28 Mar 2019 at 10:51

Hopefully Craig Burden will make the field this time. Sbu Nkosi drops out of the squad and his spot is taken by Lwazi Mvovo. Stringer swaps places with Pepsi. I am also glad to see especially Van der Walt and Van Wyk back on the bench.

Juan Schoeman drops out and I assume Thomas will serve as replacement loosehead with Khutha Mchunu taking the reserve tighthead spot.

1. Beast Mtawarira
2. Akker van der Merwe
3. Coenie Oosthuizen
4. Ruben van Heerden
5. Hyron Andrews
6. Luke Stringer
7. Jacques Vermeulen
8. Daniel du Preez
9. Louis Schreuder (C)
10. Robert du Preez
11. Makazole Mapimpi
12. Andre Esterhuizen
13. Lukhanyo Am
14. Lwazi Mvovo
15. Aphelele Fassi

Replacements
16. Craig Burden
17. Thomas du Toit
18. Khutha Mchunu
19. Gideon Koegelenberg
20. Philip van der Walt
21. Grant Williams
22. Kobus van Wyk
23. Curwin Bosch

They will be facing a strong Bulls team that has been bolstered by the return of lock Eli Snyman with Liebenberg moving back to the flank.

15 Divan Rossouw, 14 Cornal Hendricks, 13 Jesse Kriel, 12 Burger Odendaal, 11 Rosko Specman, 10 Handre Pollard (c), 9 Embrose Papier, 8 Duane Vermeulen, 7 Hanro Liebenberg, 6 Ruan Steenkamp, 5 Eli Snyman, 4 Jason Jenkins, 3 Trevor Nyakane, 2 Schalk Brits, 1 Lizo Gqoboka.
16 Corniel Els, 17 Simpiwe Matanzima, 18 Conrad van Vuuren, 19 Jannes Kirsten, 20 Tim Agaba, 21 Ivan van Zyl, 22 Manie Libbok, 23 Johnny Kotzé.

  • So van Wyk to cover centre. Wonder where he’s been all this time. Would’ve gone with Mvovo at fullback and van Wyk at 14 just to add some more bulk to the back 3 for defense purposes.

    Good too see ginger ninja back. Should bring some needed grunt of the bench.

  • @Quintin (Comment 2) : Also glad to see Stringer start, I like to have someone other than an outside centre poaching at the rucks :lol: We also have Coenie to do that so lets hope we can get some turnovers from them.

  • @pastorshark (Comment 1) : Frustrating getting info like this, even the official Sharks website light on details more often than not.

    Glad to see Mvovo and Van Wyk, it was clear that neither was injured but instead other players were backed which is fine, competition in essential

  • Van wyk back, yay. The man loves scoring against the bulls and always gives his all. Mvovo is another neglected stalwart. Ginger has to play his best game ever. First time in 3 years I’m excited to play against a local team

  • @pastorshark (Comment 10) : Well we can, we know that, we’ve seen that. The question is will we? Will some weird idea about local competition or some early scoring pressure from their side force these boys into the wrong midset and game plan? We always talk about captains and leadership. But this is where the structure needs to come to the fore. The coach needs to drill the right thinking into them not just be a technical leader. The Captain needs to reinforce it constantly. Then the leadership pod (consisting of forward and backs) needs to ensure it gets executed.

  • Got to say I haven’t been keen for a local game like I am for this one for a few years. I just hope, as many have said already, the guys heads are in the right place and they come out with the same focus they would have if they were playing any NZ team. Also excited to see some of the absent guys again, Phillip, Mvovo, Van Wyk and good old Durban boy Burden. I’d very much like to see us with the following 15 at some point tomorrow:

    1. du Toit 2. Burden 3. Coenie Oosthuizen
    4. Gideon Koegelenberg 5. Hyron Andrews
    6. Jacques Vermeulen 7. van der Walt 8. Daniel du Preez
    9. Louis Schreuder (C) 10. Robert du Preez
    12. Andre Esterhuizen 13. Lukhanyo Am
    11. Makazole Mapimpi 14. Van Wyk
    15. Lwazi Mvovo

  • Firstly is Burden signed,I have a suspicion he is not and his in/out of the team says negations are on going and neither side is happy ,all the time we are fucking around with another good youngsters career,
    Kieron has done nothing wrong every time he has played, yet is constantly looked over for every side show that rears its head.First it was Chilli and the ongoing attempt to keep this three time drug cheat in the limelight.Only a week ago we played another youngster against the Bulls who stood straight up in his first scrum.
    Maybe Burden is the right choice but I like to see him prove himself first in a lesser game before throwing him straight into such an important game..

  • @Byron Wright (Comment 18) : Nope we don’t we have done this far too often. Rather invest in what we have and can get a return for. Even if he is good what does it matter if he cant even make it through training, or is in and out the whole time because of injury. Do we need or can We afford the disruption especially next year with Akker gone? Too high risk. I say take him out and prep him for CC or SR challenge this year regardless if he recovers.

  • @coolfusion (Comment 25) : It’s not like we need him to beat the bulls we did quite well in the first two games and again last week without him. Besides our problems don’t lie with a specific position it’s more game plan and execution. Anyways the option is now forcefully removed from the table….maybe for the best.

  • Part of it is decision making. For andres try, we kept working to the blindside. We couldn’t kick a goal for crap, so move it infield! Reminds me of Wales v France 2011. Phillips scores but doesn’t go behind posts. Kick missed, they lost. Play to the conditions, if your kicker can’t kick move it in.

Think it’s lip service to support the marketing department sell season tickets and new jerseys. The tank should have been moved to loosehead ages ago. An experienced tighthead should have been brought on board. Proper cover at 7… a descent flyhalf. Think we should buy Joshua Stander from WP ASAP.

  • All I want to know is whether or not Rassie is watching Dan Du Preez? He has been the best 8th man in the county. The new Bok contracts should be offered to the Du Preez twins. SARU and the Sharks must do everything to keep the Du Preez twins in the country. It’s going to be difficult because they are not based in Cape Town and signed under WP. Just hope Rassie puts his bias towards WP players aside puts SA rugby first.

  • After round 7, our positions 4,5,6,7,9 and 10 have not even made it once on the SA rugby team of the week. Says a lot about where we are misfiring and where are weaknesses are. Robert Du Preez’s favouritism is also a big issue. Why was Vosloo selected ahead of Stringer especially after the game Stringer had and why is Vermuluen still starting ahead of Pepsi? Yes Hyron offers a lot when it comes to the lineouts but his general play is shocking. With Ginger back and Dan playing so well at 8th man, maybe Ginger must start 7, Stringer at 7 with Pepsi on the bench.

  • Saturday’s display was not that of a championship team and unfortunately we aren’t going to turn into one before the end of this tournament. The Sharks, as a team, have shown no growth from last year and we will probably go on to finish in similar style (or lack there of).

    I’ll continue supporting the boys and hoping like hell I’m wrong but based on the past 7 years I can’t see us turning this season around. What a pity.

    Personal wise big shout out to Dan, what a great season he’s having. Keep it up. Mapimpi, I have been very harsh with but he has been very good this season too. Feel Bosch needs to be backed as Fassi and Rob Jnr simply have not performed well enough in recent time to warrant continued starts and they need to be shown this through non-selection/bench time. Akker :roll:
    Now here is my idea to correct our second row (Hyron Andrews lack of physical work) dilemma. Of our fit locks lets play the best suited to 5 at 5 (Not Andrews, so not sure who this is), plat Dan at 4 and get van der Walt to call the lineouts. We may find this gives us a little more grunt and potentially we stop being turned over so often.

    I’d like to see Ben10 start at 10, thought he looked like a reliable defender and showed good touches on attacked for the brief period he was with us. I was really disappointed when we let him go and feel he’d be a good investment for the future with Bosch continuing his development at 15.

Bosch future is at 15 where his D isnt such an issue but my word we have so few option at 10 thanks to the coach. The worst thing is these issues where being discussed on the forumn before the season even began. Lack of quality locks and back up for 10.

We suck bananas against SA teams…and I have a suspicion that one reason for that is that we just cannot handle pressure…with the Conference setup, there is more pressure on these games and we just make very poor decisions in these games. Anyway, I’m going to switch off my “feel-too-much” mode for another half a rugby season…and let’s see what happens…

One thing I do know without watching the game is that if we want to win this coming weekend we need to get rid of these super crap super hero jerseys and revert back to our 2019 Sharks jersey. We havent won a single game wearing the Super Hero jersey yet and we havent lost one wearing our actual jersey yet.
    Its simplistic but Im grabbing at straws here. :mrgreen: :oops:

  • It was clear the Bulls struggled when the Sharks ran at the defense – especially out wide.
    It was clear that Stringer made a huge difference to the balance of the loose trio by supporting the speedsters and making the pass that helped score our first try.
    Why then (unless he had a niggle) do you pull him off but keep the guy on the field that can only put his head down, force another ruck and quite often loses the ball in contact?
    We should have finished with Stringer at 6, Ninja at 7 and Dan at 8.

  • @GreatSharksays (Comment 160) : @SeanJeff (Comment 165) : I did not see it but from what I’ve read in the media it seemed he tried to head butt Schalk and if that is true I expect him to get at least 6 week ban.

  • @Bokhoring (Comment 178) : Should have been more. He’s lucky, it was lenient. Didn’t see anything about Brits getting banned and he clearly was swinging and connecting as well as instigating. I agree some egos are getting way too big for sharks…time to move on from Akker and look to the future let him live out his days as impact. I say same for Jnr for now but not for same attitude reason, but simply because he has lost focus the kid is really struggling for some reason.

  • @coolfusion (Comment 179) : @coolfusion (Comment 180) : @Bokhoring (Comment 182) : 100% correct! I don’t like this “loan contract” as players now play almost 10 months of the year and then instead of taking a break a way from the physical and mental side of the game they go and play the other 2 months as well. All gained is short term money as the player will either get injured or will start to lose form and focus due to burnout!!!

  • Bulls have signed Herbst. Quality tighthead whilst our looseheads to tighthead converts are being schooled at every scrum. If I was part of the Sharks’ management team, I would have got Herbst back and moved Thomas permanently back to loosehead.

  • I’m still not sure with Bosch at 10. Like him from 15 and hitting the line as needed,

    Ben10 would be a great guy to bring back.

  • @pastorshark (Comment 192) : luckily I totally missed the game as I was under the impression that the game only started at 17h00. Switched over just in time to see final score! Must say not even a bit sad that I missed it and to be totally honest think I’m going to “miss” the Lions game as well!!!

  • @JD (Comment 199) : I’m beginning to ask myself exactly that. Surely I can do better things with my Saturdays then spending the entire day looking forward to the Sharks game, then getting frustrated for the rest of my Saturday because of the performance dished up by the Sharks. Maybe if I stop watching the Sharks and just detaching from them my heart will automatically get 5 more years.

  • @Byron Wright (Comment 202) : Good question as Gary is still heavily involved in his private yellow plant business which operates in the rest of Africa meaning that Rob has more freedom? It doesn’t look like the Sharks are his main priority. I still say bring back Jake White and give him autonomy to get this union right. I’ve lost confidence in the current management team running things at Kings Park.

  • @GreatSharksays (Comment 204) : Thats is my thinking as well. He has a very successful business and I am sure his heart is in the right place but how can he run the sharks and his business? As you say he most likely gives RDP a lot of power and its left us in a bad position.
