  • I think I close game ahead. In the humidity we have in Durbs today expect the bench to be really crucial.

    That is where it is really advantage Sharks; with Albert, Jannie, Adi and Stefan – all have been Boks and are quality replacements.

  • Yoss this is a bit of a cliche but I expect the Stormers to be up to the task for 60minutes and then for the Sharks to pull it through.

  • So what can we expect?

    Sharks tights to be in superb form, but the Stormers to give them hell at the breakdown. Let’s hope they Look decides to hang around in the backs, effectively giving us a two-man advantage. JB, AJ and Kanko are going to have to put in the performance of their lives out there.

    Freddie and Brad to exploit the channel between Grant and de Villier, methinks.

  • WTF?

    How on earth did the Wildebeeste lose?

    And how are we 10-0 down after having majority possession?
    So far not a good sports weekend with Arsenal losing, SA finishing down the grid in A1 GP, & the Beeste losing.

  • Willie Roos being asked if he agrees with the yellow that Deaker intends giving Burger?

    Burger has just gotten himself in BIG KAK if you ask me.

    Swearing at the TJ is just not on dude.

  • And the problem with this is the Stormers management.

    Making a big stink about the Ref in the media just encourages the players to believe they are justified in behing like that towards the TJ.

  • to the Stromers who WILL come on and complain about the yellow.

    ROOS did not make the decision to send him off. Deaker asked what he saw and while he was telling Deaker Deaker interupted and said that that was what he had seen as well and that he was going to give a yellow. AT NO STAGE DID ROOS SUGGEST OR EVEN MENTION a yellow

    23.02.08 18:43:17 – Le Requinny

    KSA thinks he was okay, I don’t think he showed up half as much as expected. He might be described as having quick hands but imo it seemed more like “oh shit I got the ball, someone take it please”
    he had a few good runs but I definitely expected more after the hype

  • Good evening everyone.

    My nerves are really and truly finished after that game. And had to watch it with my 19 month old grandson tearing around the lounge.

    That wasn’t pretty.

  • Just checking in here..good match. I was happy with Fred’s work although I think it will take another week or two for him to find his consistent partner in crime when it comes to some of his quick work both hand and boot. I was impressed with the way he withstood some of the hits thrown at him as well as that beaut of a tackle he made down the side.

  • I like Kockott and would like to see him start with Fred. Early reports look like RP will not play in next weeks match but I suppose we won’t know for sure until sometime next week.

  • Kners.

    I have not been that tense in a LOOOONG time, That match was way to close for comfort.

    Next week will be very _______________[insert correct option here( interesting, scary, nerve wracking, intense, embarrassing)].

    The Bulls are going to do their best to show that they are a better team than their result on friday night indicates and the Sharks have been brought down to earth with a shattering thud.

    Bulls out to prove something + Sharks brought down to earth timeously = good HARD game.

    The one tackle in particular where he was all but smothered by two of the Stormers when he took the mark. 😯

    to have gotten up from that, taken the quick tap and run so far is no easy achievement.

    Michalak is much harder than his “icon” status leads on.

    I think he will hook up really well with Kockott.

    Been saying it all season, much to the disgust of some people.

    Backline as I would like to see it.

    15 Ruan Pienaar
    14 Odwa Ndungane
    13 Waylon Murray
    12 Francois Steyn
    11 JPP
    10 Frederick Michalak
    9 Rory Kockott

    Bench
    Adi Jacobs
    Brad Barritt
    Stefan Terblanche / Mentz (if he shines up)

  • Michalak will create so many line breaking oppertunities for Steyn it’d be awesome

  • The option taking by the Sharks in deciding when to kick for points almost cost them the game! They could have had a much bigger points margin. I never felt they were going to lose, they were the better team throughout!But should put points on the board when the opportunity presents itself!

    If you never felt they were going to lose then you were a lot more confident than I was. 🙂

    I was not THAT tense in ANY of our RWC matches even in the S14 Final last year.

    That was just tooo much last night.

  • Morning All!

    Odwa had a shocker yesterday! I would love to have seen Stefan in his place! I was at the match & he just looked out of sorts and, for that matter, out of position 🙁 I think he should have been on the sub bench….this was, after all his FIRST game this year.

    I was hugely impressed with Freddie…once this backline “gels” they are going to be awesome.

    Ruan & Rory are different types of players….and both are great scrummmies, we are blessed ❗ I think Dick is right…start with calm & collected Ruan….bring Rory on as impact player.

    It WAS a bit too close for comfort but I will take 4 points,at this early stage, no matter how they came 🙂

    This time last year the Sharks were constantly critcised for not getting bonus points and just grinding out wins……more of the same this year? Rather have 4 points in the bag!! Thank you!
