Sharks take on the Lions without Bosch


Written by Henk Terblanche (Bokhoring)

Posted in :Currie Cup on 15 Aug 2019 at 15:35

Sean Everitt has catapulted Boeta Chamberlain straight into the starting team to replace Curwin Bosch who is out injured due to a lower back sprain.

Dylan Richardson is on the bench as a hooker replacement – I assume Sean has had enough of Burden’s poor discipline.

Jonny Meyer replaces Coenie Oosthuyzen who is also injured (ligament in left knee), and Leolin Zas comes into the team in place of Marius Louw (MCL injury to his left knee).

  • I like that Smith is still on the bench, seeing as how he’s leaving for the Cheetahs. Makes sense to blood someone that’ll actually still be in our structures next season. Ditto with Burden, he’s proven all his detractors right and supporters wrong.

  • @Karl (Comment 1) : My thinking as well with regards To Rhyno as well, even though I am sorry to see him go. I was one of the Burden supporters, but between his injuries and discipline, he’s the biggest waste of money that I’ve seen here is recent years!

  • Interested to see how the youngster goes, glad to see Nohamba starts as well as he has played with Chamberlain before. Id still like to see Koegelenberg start with Andrews moved to 7 and Vermuelen to 8. Sorry for me Mthembu just isn’t good enough to be making the side.

  • Interesting Sharks performance. Good guts shown to get the win. Some really good stuff but also some very average.
    I do think JP Pieterson is not offering too much- although he does make some good tackles. Just not sure who we would play at 13 instead as id like to see Ward stay at 12 and keep Van Wyk on the wing. That Alwayno Visagie we let go to the Pumas is doing good things at 13. I thought the youngster Chamberlain looked good and definitely one id like to see more of. We have quality youngsters so need to throw them in the deep end. The concern for me going into super rugby is our props, we seem to have guys that cant keep their feet and are penalty machines. Its an area that does concern me if Beast/Coenie don’t play.

  • Very good away win. We are playing a nice brand of rugby and Everitt must be given credit for getting decent results in his first season while also giving the youngsters a go.

    We should get Thomas and Andre back soon and they can add to our depth and give some grunt.

    Well done to Chamberlain on an excellent Debut.

    Ruben Van Heerden and Kerron Van Vuuren are future boks for sure.

    Beast/Schoeman, Kerron/Mbatha, Meyer/Thomas
    Ruben v Heerden/Koeglenberg, vd Mescht, Andrews, Pepsi/Stringer, Vermeulen/ Paul, Terra?

    We saw how the Sharks were pretty toothless without the twins in the pack. Vd Walt also a loss.
    Your thoughts?

  • @KingCheetah (Comment 42) : I really like vd Walt but must say he did not really play his best rugby for the Sharks although playing out of position probably did not help much! Next year will be difficult as the Sharks will not have physically dominant loose forwards as in the past. Lets hope the coaching staff can adapt and play to the strengths of the team rather than try to continue with the old style of play.

  • @KingCheetah (Comment 42) : If the Sharks are going to persist with trying to bash away in trying to secure wins then most definitely need a lot more bulk and physicality in the pack not just the loose forwards. However, if we are looking to a more open game then we need speed in the loose forwards with grunt in the tight 5.

But since we are talking about centres, I was a bit surprised that we didn’t play with Louw at 12 and War at 13 like we did last year. Could this be because our co-captain prefers 12?

  • @JD (Comment 43) : I agree! Ginger is a7/8. That is why I ask, as the Sharks game plan is geared around forward dominance, actually any teams.
    @SheldonK (Comment 46) : I quick mobile flanker is good, but we all know you need an abrasive 7 or 8 to dominate the collisions. IMHO, with only Vermeulen doing the hard yards, it isn’t working. Terra undoes all the hard yards gained. I like Phepsi, maybe at 6, play Vermeulen at 7, and maybe Paul at 8. Or Stringer at 6 with Phepsi able to cover 6/8.

    But what about injuries? Then the Sharks are left with no grafter at 7. Just my thoughts.

  • @JD (Comment 56) : The Ward/Am combo could work out well. I like Andre, he is a machine, but I get the impression that Ward is just more the complete package. He puts in some hard tackles and often takes charge in organising the defense. Good vision and ball distribution, although we will miss that left boot of Andre. I can’t really see JP getting a lot of game next year in SR, not with the centres and wings that we have, unless we have some injuries.

Du Preez is gone and he has no guarantee that he will be 1st choice at province, since they stated that they want to play Willemse at 10. With the Sharks he is our first choice. Chamberlain was good, but I can’t see him pushing Bosch out of the starting 15 yet.

  • @HeinF (Comment 70) : Hope he stays, but usually where there’s smoke, there is a fire. Valid point that he will be first choice, that might sway the decision

  • @jdolivier (Comment 80) : I definitely think he would have gone if Rob du Preez Jnr and Snr stayed, but I’m very hopeful that he will stay with us now

  • @coolfusion (Comment 50) : This could be a good option. I suspect he’d be a Danie Russow type 8.

  • Nice to add Thomas, Coenie and Andre as they make us a more formidable side in terms of power.

    Ntshila I am very excited about.

  • @Byron Wright (Comment 88) : I am clearly not watching enough rugby, haven’t seen him play yet. What is his favoured position between 6, 7 and 8?

  • @Byron Wright (Comment 88) : Powerful front row, undone by a powderpuff loose trio. Only Vermeulen and Pephsi offer value, Terra is no 8th man, and it is going to cost the Sharks at some stage. Bulls can match the Sharks, and both backlines are exciting.

  • @KingCheetah (Comment 90) : Agree on 8 being a problem for the Sharks. Will be interesting to see how Chamberlain combines with Esterhuizen and how the Sharks deal with the Bulls threat out wide.

  • @HeinF (Comment 89) : prefers 8 but can play 7. He has been an outstanding player for the kings.

  • @KingCheetah (Comment 90) : Sadly Terra is no professional rugby player anymore…in any position. He really should retire, super nice person, and truly committed to the Sharks, but injuries have taken their toll on his body and his ability to perform.
