Chamberlain starts against the Canes


Written by Henk Terblanche (Bokhoring)

Posted in :Super Rugby on 13 Feb 2020 at 14:41

Curwin Bosch had to fly home due a family bereavement and Boeta Chamberlain has been promoted to the 10 jersey. Sean Everitt went with a 6-2 split on the bench with only Sanele Nohamba and Jeremy Ward covering the back line. I would assume in case of Chamberlain needing to be replaced Mohamba could take over the place kicking from 9 and Andre can deputize at fly half.

Dylan Richardson comes in on  the bench as a loose forward replacement.

This is definitely a match the Sharks can win, but the Canes will be the Sharks’ most difficult challenge thus far. The Canes will be back after a hectic travel schedule, but the Kiwi teams do seem to shake off travel fatigue when they arrive back home.

15 Aphelele Fassi, 14 Madosh Tambwe, 13 Lukhanyo Am (c), 12 Andre Esterhuizen, 11 Makazole Mapimpi, 10 Boeta Chamberlain, 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 Dylan Richardson, 21 Phendulani Buthelezi, 22 Sanele Nohamba, 23 Jeremy Ward.

  • Here’s hoping for a win, but more importantly for no injuries amongst the backs during the 80 mins

  • Excited about this game. It’s interesting that Everitt has gone with a 6-2 bench split, is this the new South African strategy when it comes to strong forward packs?

  • @Hulk (Comment 2) : I guess in an extreme case, either of Buthelezi, Notshe or Burden (not unfamiliar to the backline) could fill a spot in the centres or on the wing…

  • @Karl (Comment 3) : Fassi would be more than capable of taking over at 10 in my opinion if anything goes pear shaped with a number who could be going to FB.

  • And now for something completely different. Remember Jacques Potgieter?. He is the marquee signing for my local side. Brakpan Rugby Club. :lol: Seriously. He is player/mentor with Reggie Muller (coach) who played in Sharks academy with Jacques. :grin: So the Sharks are everywhere.

  • Just saw the game and it was lost by us. Coles should have got a yellow card but the game was over as a contest. Atrocious defending for 3 tries (21 points) and Everrit getting carried away was the real reasons for the loss. Get the basics right Everrit. We don’t need another hero!

  • Lineouts and scrum are killing us and cost us the game today . The lock pairing seems to be the problem in the scrum. When Roets comes on the scrum becomes stable. If we continue with Andrews and van heerden then maybe Tyler Paul must shift to lock in the scrum and Andrews to flank. The hooker must work harder to find his jumpers. It is simply not good enough at this level. Perhaps complacency has crept in. Coaches need to crack the whip or wield the axe. The ref did not blow in our favor but that is not why we lost.

I was at Newlands for the Stormers VS hurricanes game and I can say that there was a hell of lot of foul play and disruption by the canes. Difference was that the Stormers were more physical and clinical.
