John and the boys – and especially Ruan – well done on another superb win!

Victories don’t come much sweeter than that – looking down and out with a few minutes to go and up steps the man of the moment to land an amazing match-winner. Ruan – you are back and the best scrummie in the land this week, no doubt. Congrats, meneer and enjoy it.

It’s been a tough tour, Sharks and it started pretty badly for sure. The resolve and team spirit shown over the last two weeks in New Zealand have been amazing to watch. Have a safe flight home and we can’t wait to see you carry on the good work in Durban.

Plum – good one, mate. If you can get the team to play like that every week, then I hope you DO stay with the Sharks for many years to come.

  • Yes. great win although cost me a bit of nerves. And Ruan absolutely excellent . who says he hasn,t BMT? I was watching sky – Justin Marshall and Brat Barrit in studio were signing praise of Ruan after the first half.

  • Now all what Sharks need is to clone Ruan to cover both 9 and 10 and find Fransie’s double for a line breaker ( maybe this one from “that picture” would be good πŸ˜‰

  • Yes a fantastic win for our boys. Ruan playing some great rugby and Lambie is already a magnificent player. Only 19 years of age, I am impressed. How Plum kept Lambie out is a mystery. Just shows what a injury can do, gives someone a chance to show what he has got. Lambie has plenty of that. Going to be great. Let us now not mess him about either. Keep him at FB.

    John was superb again at Loosehead.

    Great win and hoping we can do it again next week at the Tank.

    Do wish after such a long tour the players could be getting their bye now.

    Let us support them. Everyone in Durbs no excuse get to the Tank next week and support the Sharks.

    Go Sharks.

  • Great win and excellent play by the whole team.

    Special mention to Lambie though: the kid fields high balls brilliantly, and did anyone notice how superb his kick & chases are – not the usual lottery stuff we have become used to.

    With all due respect, Stefan should not be starting next week, and until he learns to keep the ball in hand more, maybe Mvovo should be on the bench.

  • @KSA Shark Β© (Comment 41) : KSA, hopefully you are still around. Thought the game was brilliant, and thought the officials in the last two matches have been excellent.

    There is one question I had for you, Garth Wright was very adamant that Bissie should not have been penalized for obstruction on the kickoff. This goes along with Jannie being called for the same thing in the last lineout against the Waratahs. Garth was very adamant in both instances that they should not have been called, but I see it differently and would love your input. It seems to me that in both instances, Bissie and Jannie came around the player receiving the ball so they were between the player and opposition. Wright’s argument was that it was a maul so no obstruction, I don’t see it that way, two players on the same team in contact with the ball does not make a maul, you need an opposition player in contact as well. I see it no different to a truck and trailer in that the maul has not yet formed, so even though they are in contact, by coming around in front of the player they obstruct the opposition. It seems to me that they would have to allow an opposition player to come into contact with the ball receiver, and then they could work their body around in front of the player. So in my opinion, the ref got it right both times, and Garth Wright is wrong. What is your take? ❓ ❓ ❓

  • @Dancing Bear (Comment 42) :

    I sat in the bar giggling at how stupid I thought Wright was. I think Bismarck was in front of the other Shark before he caught the ball so then he was offside, but also agree with your thought that no maul was formed so the opposition can come from anywhere which is what the Canes did.

    Someone (a ref guru on 365 or SA rugby refs somewhere) mentioned that the Jannie incident was correct in being penalised, and I agree from the explanation of the situation. I didn’t see it so not entirely sure though.

    Yesterday Wright WAS wrong though.

  • @KSA Shark Β© (Comment 43) : Thanks, I think the Jannie situation was similar. Jannie, while lifting the receiver, stepped around in front of him, before anyone from the opposition had made contact with the ball carrier. Once again, there was no maul formed because nobody from the opposition was in contact with either Jannie or the ball carrier. Of course, we should never have been at that lineout anyway, as we should have been awarded the penalty try.

  • I was also quite surprised how often Tialata put his hand down on the ground and then bound inside Smit’s arm. Didn’t get caught once though as the ref seemed to be on the other side of the scrum when he did it. Was surprised the Assistant Ref didn’t call it, since it was so obvious.

  • I know Smit needs some rest, but unfortunately we are woefully short of leaders in the Sharks pack. Once you get past Smit and Muller, I suppose Botes is next, but he just seems far too quiet to bring a team together at the critical time of a match.

    Speaking of Botes, I thought he played one of his best games in a couple years yesterday. All over the field. I think the new interpretations help him since he never was a fetcher type open sider. He makes a lot of tackles but never seemed to make a lot of turnovers. With the new interpretations, he is excelling again, making tackles all over the field and running superb support lines.

  • Slightly off subject but you have to ask yourself why the Canes announced that Cooper will not be their coach next year. I think they were undefeated before that and have lost everything since then.

  • Mexted made me chuckle when he kept refering to Kockott as Pienaar after Kockott came on for good and moved to 9.

    Especially that one kick that went dead in the Canes area and we came back for a scrum. πŸ˜†

  • @KSA Shark Β© (Comment 51) : That’s fine KSA, but if your captain is going to be a wing or fullback, you MUST have a leader of note in the pack, maybe not as captain, but you need someone to keep the pack together, and Stefan is not going to get in the middle of the forwards a cajole them into a superior scrum performance. You need a pack leader for that, and unfortunately once you get past Smit and Muller, we have nobody in the Sharks pack.

  • @KSA Shark Β© (Comment 52) : Did you notice that when Pienaar was at 9, there was rarely a ruck where we did not have a scrumhalf there to clear the ball. As soon as Kockott came on, there were several rucks that someone else needed to clear the ball from the base.

  • @Dancing Bear (Comment 49) : I agree Botes tackled his heart out. Must admit I thought all the Big Boys were tackling our trying to put in some BIG hits. DuP Bros however appear to give away far too many penalties. Jannie DuP never seems to try move after making a tackle I was amused to see Tialata penalised for a similar offence, but then remembered he isn’t a qualified DOCTOR. Not too sure if I would want to get a diagnosis from the good Doc??? :mrgreen: Well Done Sharks now all you need to do is to put the Reds away this coming weekend. So its probably going to be Tackle Tackle Tackle because the Reds seem to want to play. They need to show Quade Cooper a couple of Handcuffs just to remind him that he is a criminal after all!!!

  • congratulations sharks and sharks fans, that was the game of the weekend for me, i missed the 1 st 20 minutes as i had to drop my daughter at the airport. But my goodness that was a superb last 60 minutes.

    It is clear that the front row is settled now that you have a proper 3 ….and Smit has handled 1 with aplomb. That platform has seen Ruan grow in confidence, and he certainly has looked the part again at 9.

    Lambie continues to impress , and with the experience of Stefan Terblanche and Jpp growing in confidence this is a very different sharks team.

    I seriously believe he sharks can now get on a roll and although difficult a possible semi not yet gone. It wouldnt surprise me if sharks dont lose another game.

    I am thrilled at the turnaround, the turbo reverse is finally a thing of the past. Plum must not be bullied by anyone to mess with that tighthead position again!

    Again, my huge congratulations,the sharks are well and truly back!!

    2 wins and the sharks are the defacto champions. I’m thrilled, but let’s see how things are going.
    And before anyone criticises me, I am not one who was calling for Plum’s head when we were losing so I have stuck to my guns the whole time.

    However , as i have said for over a year now, relieve smit of the 3 jersey and play ruan where he is happy at 9 and the sharks seem a far better proposition.

    But you choose to twist the statements i have made and ridicule me for my contentions, which are being proven 100% correct?

    Come on puma….grow a pair you little wally! The sharks front row is far more stable with smit far from the 3 jersey….and ruan looks happy again….that is the difference.

    A bit early to start saying I told you so.

    Th truth is that we still depend heavily on the errors of the opposition and individual brilliance. And I don’t understand why – not with the talent we have.

    Right now if I want to enjoy a game of rugby just for rugby’s sake, I tune in to a Bulls or Stormers game, not a Sharks game.

  • @Big Fish (Comment 79) : you think i begrudge the sharks anything? then you are the small-minded one! i am just pointing out the reality of the situation to a windgat loudmouth like puma who is already taking potshots at other bloggers as if the sharks are on top of the log when they have just scraped through victories against 2 sides recovering from trips from south africa.

    Without brad barritt, francois steyn, butch james in the team and with john smit at tighthead, a sulking ruan pienaar at flyhalf, the sharks ARE a 2nd rate team! deal with with it puma

  • Does anyone else think JP might actually play better at centre then at wing, think it would give him a chance to do a bit more running! With JP there we could shift Mvovo to the wing

  • @Megatron (Comment 80) : Like big fish said, two wins does not mean all is fine in the Sharks camp. And maybe Puma feels just like the players… emotions run high when you don’t get the results you wish for. So let him be so that he can enjoy the victory. Nobody can deny that the S14 is out of reach for the Sharks and I’m sure Puma knows this aswell

    O and just by the way… the Canes were the very same side that pushed the Bulls all the way at Loftus and only lost by one point. The only side to do so in a very long time. So don’t make them out as a nothing team.

  • After watching the weekends action i have a dilemma on my hands with LMS.

    Blues v Bulls and Sharks v Reds all teams available to pick.

    What do i do ?

    I surely can pick a winner….the more i think about it, the more i confuse myself !

  • @Hertford Highlander (Comment 93) : Did you see the Bulls against the Force……weren’t looking good at all, Blues at home after managing to throw their game away will be unstoppable.

    Sharks vs. Reds must be the worst game to call….Sharks on the up, but Reds looking way solid…..not clear at all.

  • @Hertford Highlander (Comment 90) : can’t say I watched them… really tough to pick a winner there, but surely the Bulls have to lose sometime?

    I’m going Stormers this week – not sure if you still have them to pick. From then on, it’s whoever the Cheetahs are playing :mrgreen:

    Force will be better again next weak are the Stormers really that good.

    I do see Ryan Cross has been suspended….big factor !

    Watched Reds….they must go close against the mighty Sharks.

    Or are the Sharks the best bet of all ?

    “you think i begrudge the sharks anything? then you are the small-minded one!”

    Completely fail to follow your logic on that one.

    If you care to be objective then you would note that in terms of personnel the Sharks are far from 2nd rate – which is why the coach must offer up his mea culpa for the sub-par performance so far.

    A team like the Cheetahs can at least claim to be a bunch of average guys giving it their all – the Sharks have the salaries, perks and structures to ensure success, and so there is a greater accountability for the poor performances.

    Then again, your stance against the Sharks hardly appears a purely rugby one.

  • @Megatron (Comment 115) : Megatron, as we all know, was a Sharks supporter when he was still a Safrican.

    Then one day as a kid lurking in the shadows of Kings Park, match program in hand, probably couldn’t manage to get Cabous’ autograph.

    Traumatised, young Tron (for that was his name before his delusions of grandeur later in life saw him add the Mega), decided to not be a Sharks supporter anymore.
