Bok job won’t hurt Sharks

Dick Muir on Tuesday confirmed that he and Stormers’ forward coach Gary Gold had been identified by SA Rugby as possible assistants to Springbok coach Peter de Villiers.

John Bishop of The Witness reports that Muir said that he and Gold were “in the process of sorting out contracts.”

But, Muir emphasised, the switch to coaching at international level “would not affect the Sharks’ Super 14 campaign in the least.”

Muir is meanwhile waiting on the fitness of utility players AJ Venter and Adrian Jacobs before settling on his line-up for Saturday evening’s Super 14 outing against the Reds at King’s Park.

Muir said Venter had a “minor issue” with his elbow after a small operation while Jacobs is nursing a slight hamstring strain.

“Both injuries are light but the team’s composition will depend on whether they play or not,” he said.

Muir said that he could start with Venter at lock (if he is fit) to add to the mobility of the Sharks pack with Albert van den Berg used off the bench in the second half.

Very mobile side

He said that he had been impressed with the Reds, a well-organised outfit who had improved from last year.”

“The Reds have a very mobile side, they are accurate at the breakdown and they keep the ball for long periods. They have worried us in the past and we are wary of them. They showed in thumping the Bulls that they can mix it with anyone.”

Muir is also considering selecting Francois Steyn at flyhalf again. Steyn took time to settle against the Lions in the Sharks’ last game but Muir is determined to rotate his players.

“Fred (Michalak) has plenty of experience and he will be needed for our overseas tour. He also makes a massive impact when he comes off the bench so we may use him there again on Saturday.”

Muir said that Tongan Epi Taione would also be used in a rotational role while Ruan Pienaar would probably start at scrumhalf.

“It is a real bonus to have such depth at scrumhalf and it certainly does not mean that Rory Kockott has been dropped. Ruan can play in so many positions and his versatility enables us to have five forwards and two backs on the bench.”

  • From a SASI poll.

    Which position should Francois Steyn play?

    Flyhalf 45 (15.8%)
    Inside Centre 137 (48.2%)
    Fullback 98 (34.5%)
    Wing 4 (1.4%

    Not sure how long it has been up but would be keen to see the final outcome.

    I don’t think so. I think Peter Grant will be the Bok 10 BUT that is only if Butch is not considered.

    If they (PdV and Muir) play Steyn as the Bok 10 then we will lose our first home series against Wales.

  • I’ve also got this funny feeling that Dick Muir doesn’t want to play all his cards just yet in this tournament, and that he knows that Steyn’s best position is 12, so he’s gonna switch him there with a few games to go in the round robin…

  • Nessa – Brad and Waylon have built up a good understanding over time, so I think that Dick will use them more often than not. But to beat teams like the Crusaders or Hurricanes away, the Sharks are gonna need some spark in the midfield. Brad reminds me too much of Halstead… reliable, but nothing special.

    I HOPE you are right, but hope it doesn’t backfire. You don’t want Steyn at 12 against the Saders suddenly when he hasn’t played there all season.

    The M is Margin point you are correct.

    The margin you have to be within is 5 to get the point. so if it is a draw and you said a win by 5 for either of the teams then you will get the 0.5 Margin Point.

  • Remember, KSA, Jake White had enough faith to play Steyn at 12 in the WC when JDV got injured, and he didn’t do too bad a job there in difficult circumstances, did he? πŸ˜‰

    Although I’m a WP supporter, I don’t rate JDV as an inside center at all, because he never seems to know what to do, and always comes up short against quality 12’s and 13’s.

    The best 12 we’ve had for a while was actually Dick Muir himself… not the fastest, but he knew exactly when to let the ball go and when to hold onto it. The closest thing we’ve had to him since then has been Wayne Julies, but just like Muir, he never gets the credit for what he does. He gets any backline going… just get a copy of last year’s Bulls-Reds game at Loftus.

  • I think this squad has seen enough time together to make Muir’s absence a minor thing. I only see problems arising if the acting coach decides to try and re-arrange everything for some reason. I think we might also miss Muir in the final stages of the tourney, when it becomes increasingly important to keep the chaps mentally grounded.

  • TT, you have to give Wynand some credit. At least he isn’t JP Nel.

    I think his team-mates need to adjust to his particular brand of genius. Hence Demas standing in touch ala the linesmen against the Sharks. Might well pay off next time.

  • Gotta disagree with you there, TT. He was the best inside center in the World Cup tournament.

    Sometimes you have to take calculated risks in order to progress, and I feel Jake did that with Steyn. South African sports coaches, by nature, seem to be too conservative in their thinking, so it’s refreshing to see coaches like Muir, Heyneke, and Rassie (and even PDV at age-group level) thinking outside the box.

  • Waz – losing a coach is a big thing, and if Muir leaves in the middle of the Super 14, then I doubt the Sharks will make the final. It’s not just about the structures that they’ve put in place, but also about the bond that the coach has with his players. To be able to (figuratively!) get a player to run thru a brick wall for you is not easy.

    The only coach I can recall in recent memory who’s taken over in the middle of a season and maintained the high standards, is Avram Grant at Chelsea, when he took over from Mourinho. Much easier to take over in the off-season.

  • Agree on the bond between coach and players Ghost. I’m just hoping the Sharks have the minerals to play at their best even without Muir around. Hell, they basically have no choice, since if Muir gets his contract he’ll be going for sure.

    We will try to be strong Eish – but dont stay away too long!

    The thing about losing Dick is also his ability to spot talent – if we don’t count young prodigies like Ruan and Frans, Dick fast-tracked guys like JPP, Brad, Waylon, Beast, Daniel, Kockott, Deysel and Pat Cilliers.

    Plumtree is a great coach in the normal sense, but does he have that ability to spot a diamond in the rough?

    I’m a bit surprised that Dick has almost certainly chosen to leave without seeing the season out… but I suppose the lure of eventually coaching the Boks was just too great.

  • Ghost – Dick did say that he would be on his way next year anyway. He said in an interview that a coach should never stay with a side longer than 4 years. He believes he has done what he can and needs to move on.

  • ghost, the boks played ten man rugby in the rwc. frans never had much ball to show his true skill with. you also cannot compare him as we never played france, nz or aus on our way to the final. so to say he was the best centre in the tournament is a bit bold. he defended well and made a few good breaks.

    nessa, wynand also missed vital tackles giving away tries.

    waz, dick won’t leave until after s14.

  • TT, I don’t understand how you can say that the Boks played 10 man rugby in the WC, when they scored, on average, 5 tries a game?
    They never had to play any of those teams, no… but they did play England (who beat both Aus and France) and Argentina (who beat France as well).

    On evidence of the rugby played throughout that tournament, you have to say that the Boks would’ve beaten both NZ and Aus, because they were the only team who seemed able to adapt to the game situation, ie. run when u have to, and kick (well) when u need to.

    As for Frans, if you look at all the positions he’s played in so far, in which one has he been the most impressive? If you’re honest, you’ll say 12 for sure. He’ll probably eventually move into the flyhalf role once he gets more game experience, but in big games he doesn’t seem to have the head for that position yet.

    Your 10 and 12 have got to be very clever, as well as instinctive players, and must be able to play both positions. When you’re as talented as the guy is, you can probably play anywhere in the backline, but 10/12 is where he should settle, because at 15 he won’t have any influence on the game if he doesn’t get the ball.

    The dudes in Tswane must have rocked to this if only they knew who sang it. πŸ˜†

    Nessa, I was voted the hottest blogger on a previous rugby blog, and was given a ticket to the Super 14 Final, so that I might accompany KSA and some other miscreants so they might look cool for once.

    The prize included a stipulation that I drive down with ’em from Jozi as they wanted to spend extra time with me.

    I could tell you stories, but I dont have any kids yet and I aint gonna risk that hope just yet. πŸ˜‰

    I have been on some of those bus trips – the last one I went on I couldn’t see straight by 9 o’clock in the morning. Every time I closed my eyes for a little nap – they shoved a syringe down my throat with heaven knows what in it – think I will rather drive down in my own car next time! I am getting too old for that.

    Yeah old Rob “Vanilla Ice” Van Winkle is a bit more hardcore than he used to be.
    Although with that surname he will never ever completely by “hardcore”

  • really is a potent squad, the reds will be a tough fixture, but with all the sharks possibly back i.e. pienaar, carstens and AK and EPi, so much depth…this side could surely give the Saders a go:

    1. Carstens 2. Bismarck 3. BJ
    4. AJ 5. Muller
    6. Botes 7. Epi 8. Kanko

    9. Kockott 10. Fred
    12. Steyn 13. Murray
    11. Pienaar 14. JP 15. Terreblanche

    16. Beast 17. Burden 18. Jannie 19. Albert 20. Daniels 21. Adi 22. Odwa

    Nessa, you really have the lowdown hey. Beast also playing v well, just think Carstens will revel in these ELVs.

  • KSA – Last time I was at 54 I had 2 weeks to go before my baby arrived and I asked my hubby to take me dancing for the last time before our lifes would change 4ever – Had hipsters on and a short top – and one big naked preggies belly which I showed to the whole club! I only made it to about 11h15 – was so tired. I was a hit though! πŸ˜† πŸ˜†
