Guess who’s back….. to face the Jaguares

If what is said in the media is true then Saturdays home game at Jonsson Kings Park versus the Jaguares is a very important game for the Cell C Sharks. After a really good tour this game could show us if the team can perform under pressure and deliver a solid performance at home in the Tank!!!

For the home team Sbu Nkosi is back in the starting team in place of Madosh Tambwe who moves to the bench. Rested flankers James Venter and Tyler Paul has also been restored to the starting line-up with Henco Venter moving to the bench.

Of last weeks starting team Lwazi Mvovo and Dylan Richardson did not making the match day 23 and reserves Phepsi Buthelezi and Marius Louw also did not make the match day squad.

With Tambwe and Ward on the bench (and no Boeta Chamberlain) it should probably once again fall on Sanele Nohamba to cover both 9 & 10.

With the Stormers not playing this weekend the Cell C Sharks could just find themselves in top spot of the overall log that is if they can defeat the Jaguares.

However for me personally the Cell C Sharks have bigger Jaguares to fry as they need to step up and “revenge” last years home defeat to the Jaguares!

  • Thanks JD. Solid side, go Sharks! I was present at Kings Park for lasy year’s massacre, but I won’t be there this weekend, so if the Sharks take the W I’ll take full credit! ;)

  • Going to be a tough one this. Jags have a good pack that work hard so we will have to step it up in that area.

  • Is there something I’m missing about hyron that I’m not seeing when I watch him play. He plays week in and out yet I haven’t seen much value that suggests he is the inside starter? Is there no other 5?

  • @Shane Hansen (Comment 4) : I’ve noticed that he contests opposition lineout ball quite effectively, but by all accounts, that seems to be the limit of his effectiveness. Maybe we should have everyone (especially those going to KP) keep an eagle eye on him to try and see what the coaches see in him and report back afterwards

  • @markm (Comment 9) : Not to say he hasn’t been impressive because he has but they sometimes include the metres when a fullback runs the ball back to the line in the ”metres made” stats which increases those metres quite a bit.
    Notshe has been good I must admit.
    Richardson and Buthelezi are very good prospects id like to see more of.
    Henco Venter is also under rated.

  • Crusaders beat the Reds 24-20 at home, Reds scoring 4 tries to 3, not converting any. If all things are equal this result should be telling us something of how good the Sharks win last weekend against the Reds was.

  • OK let’s see if the Sharks have got any special tactics come scrum time. I think that at the first scrum just before engaging our entire pack should double over in bouts of coughing and sneezing. That should give us scrum dominance.

  • @jdolivier (Comment 76) : That is an incredibly encouraging statistic after a very successful tour. Everitt has done an excellent job of rotating his squad and ensuring all players are rested. All while still winning, so good to see. Andrews and Notshe should be getting some rest in the near future, as I think both have played almost every minute (I believe Notshe has played every minute). With Notshe seeming to go from strength to strength so far this season, I would allow him keep going for a few more games so as not to break his momentum.

    All that being said, Everitt sees to know what is going on, so whatever decision he makes with regard to player rotation will get no argument from me.

  • Interesting that a lot of criticism was levelled at the Sharks when Everitt was appointed and that we should have got a big name. Wonder if we lose a couple if those big critics will be back. Sharks have a tough run of games until the bye but at least the main tour is done. Im just pleased to see the side having a go, even if they do make a mistake or lose a game or two. Don’t see much happening at the other SA sides which is a worry for the Boks unless we pick foreign.

  • @SheldonK (Comment 79) : I’ll freely admit to having been skeptical of Everitt’s appointment. However, regardless of what happens from here onward, he’ll have my full support because:
    a) The Sharks are playing an adventurous, entertaining, fearless brand of rugby with good skill levels on display. There is also clear evidence that game plans can be tweaked and adjusted
    b) There is clarity about the way they want to play, and everyone is on the same page
    c) The recruitment done in the off-season was sensible and geared towards the game plan, with no Epi Taone/Matt Stevens/Jacques Potgieter recruitment disasters
    d) Player rotation is being handled sensibly, with young/fringe players being given opportunities, and “staatmakers” being afforded rest
    e) There is great squad cohesion, with players clearly being happy and motivated
    f) While we are not supposed to talk of these things, the squad is transformed, and it is not through lip service to transformation; every player is selected on merit

  • @SheldonK (Comment 79) : @Culling Song (Comment 80) : @durbsguy (Comment 81) : Everitt has been coaching with the Sharks organization since 2008. He is the only coach that has been held onto through multiple administrations. My thought at the time of his appointment was that all these administrations, head coaches, and directors of rugby have kept him around because all saw something in him. If such a diverse group of rugby people saw something then I felt he deserved a shot. I mean really, Stroolie, Van Zyl, Plum, John Smit, Jake White, Gary Gold, Teichman, and du Preez all kept him around…That is quite the group he has impressed.

I personally think he’s the better coach for having stuck it out. You can learn a lot from a bad boss, observing how NOT to do the job…

  • @SheldonK (Comment 79) : It seems as if Everitts appointment as coach was done with little or no fanfare, at least on this blog – there was not even an article about it. I found an article on Everitt being appointed as CC coach and another article a bit later mentioning that the Sharks were on the hunt for a Super Rugby coach. Everitt is touted as a possibility in the second article but in all honesty no one expressed any strong negative views to the idea. Maybe Everitt has flown so low under the radar that it has set up the ideal environment for him and the team going forward.

  • @Salmonoid the Subtle (Comment 87) : Thinking about it, that’s kind of like when the Lions were kicked out of Super Rugby; gave them an opportunity to develop without being under the microscope. Worked for the Lions, and certainly appears to be working for the Sharks

  • @Culling Song (Comment 88) : Quiete possibly, as like that Lions team this one has a look of a real bunch of youngsters (mostly) who still have to find their feet. Considering the players that have been lost to the Sharks from last season its almost unthinkable that this group of upstarts are topping the log. It doesnt make sense and yet after watching them play its more a case of thinking that we have actually missed out on 5 bonus points so far than being lucky to be where we are.

  • @Culling Song (Comment 86) : Everitt coached age group and a touch of Currie Cup until 2017 when du Preez made him a SuperRugby assistant coach. And, I may be wrong on this, but I believe that Jake White made him Currie Cup coach when he was still DoR (before he threw his toys out the cot).

  • @Salmonoid the Subtle (Comment 87) : I think by the time he was appointed many of us was so g*%#%tvol for all that was going on at the Sharks that we did not have the energy to do an article on yet another new coach.

  • @Dancing Bear (Comment 90) : I may have my facts mixed up; it’s more a perception that I have. I seem to recall that Jake White expressed his general lack of faith in the coaches that he was assigned’s abilities, but that may have been aimed more at McCloud-Henderson.

    Speaking of new appointees, it seems as if Eduard Coetzee is a real breath of fresh air in rugby management in South Africa and must also take a heap of credit for this happy team.

  • @Salmonoid the Subtle (Comment 93) : So many things to be happy about. The Sharks are also doing much better as far as their junior structures are concerned. Barring flyhalf, there are Sharks representatives in every position in the SA Academy squad that has just been announced.

  • @Culling Song (Comment 94) : Lets hope the good times last. Its really pleasing that our juniors have been strong for the last 2+ years. We should also not forget that Sean Everitts under 19 team of 2018 were crowned as champions and did not lose a single game that year.
