    Ball goes to waste and its a Valke lineout.

  • @robdylan (Comment 103) : I get that, but does he show promise? Or was it solely because the Valke were below par?

  • @MerckZ (Comment 104) : it’s so hard to say… I would say that yes, he definitely is very promising, but it’s impossible to say that Swannie wouldn’t have been just as good against these no-hopers.

  • Just a thought here. The Sharks team between 9 and 15, consisted of new/debut players. I know Strauss was at 12, but he left the field with an injury early and was replaced by a new debutant in Jenner. so for good part of this game we had new guys in the backline, bar Stefan and Rory. Now in the forwards we had Herbst in the place of Jannie and later Kyle and Pat (relatively young and inexperienced). At lock a new pair of Alistair and Bressler in the place of Muller and Sykes. The loosies were more settled, sort of. Keegan at 8 and Jacques at 6. Mike Rhodes was the newest in there at 7. And a little older was Justin Otto…..I mean Downey 😈 . So how settled was this Sharks team against a club level team after all? How many experienced player could we have had in this team? I for one think that this was a good effort by a young team that can go far in the years to come. We have been hammering Plum for not selecting the youngsters and here he at least took the opportunity to give the young ones a chance. Even if it is argued that you dont select your best players for a game like this, it also does’nt hold water, coz he took is two first choice scrummies along and the whole front row with reserves will feature in the CC. Come guys, credit where its due.

  • @FireTheLooser (Comment 28) : Shame man the poor Lions . . .

    Remember at the end of they day they`re doing all the other franshises in SA a huge favour by holding on to Earl the Pearl so that he can`t damage another unions` reputation . . .

    Because of this I suggest that the Lions be awarded a ” handicap” point everytime they start him . . .
