In the only change from the curse breaking team from last week, Madosh Tambwe replaces Sbu Nkosi who has a slight niggle. Lukhanyo Am will start his 50th Super Rugby game for the Sharks and Craig Burden (surprisingly only now) should get his 50th Super Rugby cap when he replaces Kerron van Vuuren later in the game.

This will the Highlanders first game of the season having had a bye last week. The Sharks will have a very short turnaround from last week’s game, but should stand a good chance of taking a win here.

Sharks:

15 Aphelele Fassi, 14 Madosh Tambwe, 13 Lukhanyo Am (c), 12 Andre Esterhuizen, 11 Makazole Mapimpi, 10 Curwin Bosch, 9 Louis Schreuder, 8 Sikumbuzo Notshe, 7 Tyler Paul, 6 James Venter, 5 Hyron Andrews, 4 Ruben van Heerden, 3 Thomas du Toit, 2 Kerron van Vuuren, 1 Ox Nche.
Subs: 16 Craig Burden, 17 Juan Schoeman, 18 John-Hubert Meyer, 19 Le Roux Roets, 20 Henco Venter, 21 Sanele Nohamba, 22 Boeta Chamberlain, 23 Jeremy Ward.

Highlanders:

15 Josh McKay, 14 Tima Fainga’anuku, 13 Rob Thompson, 12 Josh Ioane, 11 Jona Nareki, 10 Mitch Hunt, 9 Aaron Smith, 8 Marino Mikaele Tu’u, 7 James Lentjes (c), 6 Dillon Hunt, 5 Josh Dickson, 4 Pari Pari Parkinson, 3 Siate Tokolahi, 2 Liam Coltman, 1 Ayden Johnstone.
Subs: 16 Ash Dixon, 17 Daniel Lienert-Brown, 18 Josh Iosefa-Scott, 19 Jesse Parete, 20 Shannon Frizell, 21 Kayne Hammington, 22 Michael Collins, 23 Teariki Ben-Nicholas.

  • Would still like to see Nohamba start but then again when Nohamba came on the Bulls was so used to slow service that they were totally “surprised” by the speed of Nohamba when he scored the winning try! Let’s hope it work again on Friday!

  • Speaking to fans of other teams, most people are fairly envious of the side our suits have put together. Now for the coach to keep pressing them to get better. From a personal point of view I’ve never been a huge fan of Madosh but hopefully he can carry his CC form through from last year…

  • Great finish to the half by the Sharks. James Venter having a blinder. Notshe also having a great game. And Mapimpi the try scoring machine doing what he does best with 2 tries. Keep it up boys.

  • From the highlights I noticed many of our tries came from dropped passes, making the defence hesitate for a second and allowing the speedsters that extra moment to look for the gap. Also noticed our D line comes up extremely quickly, which is great when Ox or AE make the hit, but bad when Madosh or Nohamba get shrugged off and the attacker passes the gain line.

  • Thank you to James Venter for making me look like I know what I am talking about. That young man is a true fetcher and a great athlete, and super acceleration. He was a menace at the breakdown, and has a long career ahead of him. The coach said the style of play the Sharks will utilize requires a true fetcher, and WOW does James Venter fit that role. SO happy we have him instead of old and broken Lions opensider (Kriel).

    Also, Notshe with the fantastic offloads that led to both of Mapimpi’s tries. Lots to be happy about, but also a lot of errors. It was nice to have a little more of the rub of the green for a change. Things seemed to go the Sharks way in most of the broken play. Oh, and Fassi making the Highlanders backup scrumhalf his little bitch on the last try. :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :lol: :lol: :lol:

  • Sharks backline looked pretty decent, would have like to see Chamberlain get more of a run. (Placing all our eggs in one basket with Bosch is not the best idea). The tight 5 are a bit shaky and hope they gel the more they play together. The benefit of super rugby is that teams don’t really target the opposition tight 5, apart from the Crusaders

  • @SheldonK (Comment 33) : Must say our scrum was a disaster until Roets came on, then we looked steady at scrum time. I would like to have a look at van der Heever at 5, Roets at 4 and move Andrews to 8 ala Mark Andrews/Danie Russow. I think that gives us a much heavier pack and lots of lineout options. I’ve always liked a retreaded lock at 8 anywaty.

  • @Hulk (Comment 34) : Id agree but move Andrews to 7. I think Notshe has been good at 8 and Buthelezi is another good 8 we have.
    If Roets starts id like to see Van Der Mescht on the bench.

  • @Hulk (Comment 34) : @SheldonK (Comment 35) : unfortunately I did not watch the match on Friday but I’m not keen on moving Andrews to 7 or 8 as it seems as if the Sharks (for once) have a balanced loose trio. Sharks have a lot of young loose forwards so will rather not add a lock to that list (for now).

  • @JD (Comment 36) : @SheldonK (Comment 35) : I do agree with both statements but I feel Andrew’s is not heavy enough to play 7 and our line out and scrum are suffering with the starting 8 we are currently playing. I think with my suggestion we correct both those areas but yes we will lose something in the loose. I don’t profess for it to be the right call but would love to see it tried.

  • @Hulk (Comment 37) : Fact is playing a quick and lighter loose trio doesn’t afford the Sharks the chance to play a light lock like Andrews in the tight 5. I do think our locks need to be Van Heerden, Roets, Van Der Mescht. Especially whilst we are playing the quicker loose trio.

  • @Hulk (Comment 37) : I think our lineout problems are more due to the Hookers’ poor throwing (Burden has been better than Kerron). We have 3 real lineout threats in van Heerden, Andrews, and Paul, and Notshe can be used as an option when needed. One problem I see is they are trying to use James Venter in the lineouts which makes little sense to me as he is the shortest forward (maybe the shortest player on the field). Would make more sense to use him as a strike runner in the backline from lineouts.

  • @Dancing Bear (Comment 42) : might be because he is “light” so easy to lift. Just think back at Sharks using Keegan Daniel as a line out option. Also at 182 he is not a lot shorter than Notshe (190) but almost 10 kg lighter meaning a quicker and possibly higher lift.

  • @JR (Comment 45) : Good question, it seems as if last year was meant to be a break out season for him having been signed by the Waratahs but reading between the lines he seems to have been caught up in the Israel Folau saga with Roets being friends with Folaus brother John and both leaving the Waratahs at the same time. He is clearly one strong boy and his impact in the scrums has been massive whenever he has come onto the field.

  • @JD (Comment 48) : I took that to be as the ”reason” that was fed to the public as he and the younger Folau left together. Roets is clearly a serious Folau fan (friend) and I guess that he felt that leaving the Waratahs was thebest thing to do. I guess we will just have to wait and see with what sort of ”fire in the belly” Roets takes on the Tahs when we play them.

  • @JD (Comment 43) : As far as I can remember James Venter was not used a single time as a receiver in the lineout, so I don’t think the lighter and easier to lift argument works here. Not sure why he was in the lineouts at all unless as a lifter, but again, a taller lifter is also always better in a lineout. I think we used Notshe in the backline as a strike runner, and I just think that Venter should be used as a strike runner. and Notshe moved to the lineout. Or, if you really want him around the lineout, possibly use him as the halfback in the lineouts, especially defensive lineouts and those lineouts on their 5 metre line.

  • I remember a few seasons ago, the Lions started with their tour to Australasia, and went on to have a really strong season. I believe that while most of us consider the Sharks schedule to be “less than ideal” or just really terrible. I actually think that starting the season with a tour might be a really good thing especially with all the younger players. The excitement of a new season is still there, the younger players will be excited to tour, they only have travel fatigue to deal with as match fatigue has not yet set in, and the Sharks have a reputation for being good tourists, and having a fun/enjoyable touring party, which means all the new signings will be excited to experience that environment. Touring later in the season can be exhausting because beside the travel, many players are match fatigued, and mentally worn out. I’m sure travel under those circumstances must suck.

    So I actually think this schedule is to the sharks advantage. Now the two victories means they are on a high, with strong confidence. Also now the Hurricanes are coming back from a tough tour, 1 week in SA, then next week in Argentina, and then back to NZ (halfway around the world) with 36 hours less rest than their opponents (the Sharks), it seems the Sharks have the advantage. Of course nothing is assured, but the Sharks really have a chance to benefit from what we thought was a tough schedule.

  • @Dancing Bear (Comment 52) : Only other factor is that not many SA sides tend to play well in Wellington for some reason. I definitely think the Sharks have a good chance though, Hurricanes play a very similar game to the Sharks currently with similar type of players so could be interesting.

  • @Dancing Bear (Comment 52) : Add to that that not playing games during the whole of February in Durbans notorious humid conditions are taken out of the equation and sell it as a bonus (which it is) to the players and you are on a winning wicket. If the Sharks return from their tour with 8-12 league points I dont think anyone will have any qualms.

  • @Dancing Bear (Comment 52) : @SheldonK (Comment 53) : @Salmonoid the Subtle (Comment 54) : for sure think the early tour was a good thing as it takes away the heat and humidity of Durban during February but also some of the pressure of playing at home and needing to win at all cost.
    Also think Sharks has a huge chance of beating the Canes as all the traveling could impact their performance whilst the Sharks are “waiting” for them in NZ. BUT Sharks will have to be at 100% and be ready to beat the Canes and not expect the Canes to lose the match due to being travel fatigued!

No doubt one of the best game schedules imaginable to give a team momentum befor heading off on a 4 week tour.

  • Im keen to see if Chamberlain can make the Super rugby step up against a good side in the Canes. He did well at CC level but this is a different ball game with much less time.
    Interesting to see Henco Venter drops out the side, I quite rate him.
    Also I saw on SharkBite tv that JJ Van Der Mescht is on crutches so not sure how long he is out for?

  • @SheldonK (Comment 70) : think he is there as another fetcher as he did some good games doing that for the U\20′s.

  • @JD (Comment 71) : Exactly hence my point about him being a potential backup to James Venter. After him, the two players which have the potential to backup as fetcher is Richardson and Buthelezi in my opinion.
    @SheldonK (Comment 70) : Richardson offers more as he is there as the 3rd hooker as well as flank/fetcher.
