Meyer’s season may be over

A report on a popular website seems to suggest that Sharks flyhalf Steve Meyer will require surgery to repair the knee ligament injury he sustained against the Cheetahs this weekend.

While I would take this news as far from confirmed, since the journalist involved (Christo Buchner) has got things horribly wrong in the past, the general outlook for Meyer probably isn’t great and even if he isn’t out for the entire season, I guess it’s quite unlikely he’ll play again in the near future. We’ll try to get hold of the player ourselves to confirm this story and let you know the outcome.

While I feel the term “crisis” tends to be thrown around far too easily every time there’s an injury or two in the Sharks camp, you really do have to feel for John Plumtree and his staff, who simply can’t seem to catch a break when it comes to finding a regular flyhalf. Ruan Pienaar, of course, has also been ruled out of any further involvement with the Sharks due to a shoulder injury that will take around 6 weeks to heal; he’ll have joined Ulster in Ireland long before the rehabilitation is complete.

As we reported yesterday, all the signs seem to point to Pat Lambie having greatness thrust upon him, as he looks set to be named at pivot against the Lions. An extended period of unavailability for Meyer will mean that Lambie will no doubt become the incumbent flyhalf, leaving a hole at inside centre that somebody will need to step up and fill. A huge amount, of course, will rest on how well Lambie performs on Saturday against another highly-rated 19-year-old, the Lions’ Elton Jantjes.

With Meyer gone, though, the Sharks are once again left scratching their heads when it comes to experienced flyhalf cover in the squad. Hopes will be high that Andre Pretorius will recover sufficiently to play some sort of role, since Monty Dumond’s form against the lowly Pumas raised cause for concern. The talented under 21 duo of Willie du Plessis and Guy Cronje must also surely come into the reckoning.

  • Please not Pretorius, leave Lambie there for the rest of the season, get Dries in at 12 and maybe blood a new 13. If Lambie plays 10 for the rest of the season, and pulls it off, play him next year as well…..COM’ON LAMBIE!!!!!

  • @Tintin (Comment 2) : Good point.

    We can then move JLP to inside centre, and between the two of them, the Sharks should be fine..

    The questions is though, would JLP want to play inside centre?

    So this “buddy” of yours, how much rugby does he watch? Did he really see Lambie, or did he just see a guy with curly hair, who recently got run over by a truck and couldn’t tell the difference?

    Rich, the higher levels are stupidly hard to get… even a guy like Claytie who has been with us from the start doesn’t even has his platinum star yet.

  • I would play Pat until Andre is fully ready. When andre is ready we move pat back to inside. On the bench i would put guy as my 3rd choice fly. Dumond is more of a fullback anyway, and his form is too inconsistant for my liking, but he can do a very good job on his day. There is no need to panic!!!! We are sorted.

  • So with both JPL and Bosman in our ranks, I reckon Lambie can continue his development back at Fullback for next year’s Super 15. He can stand in at Flyhalf for the CC, where the tempo and physicality are slightly lower… but I reckon we’ll be well covered at 10 & 12 in the Super 15.

  • what happens next week on this site when lambie plays a blinder at 10 against the lions? i am really looking forward to this weekend. we have two possible future star flyhalves against eachother. hopefully jano doesn’t do a rory like he has been recently instead gets clean ball to elton so we can compare the two flyhalves. jlp is going to be centre next year.

  • @try time (Comment 80) : Fair enough… It would be nice if Kockett could get his head right before then.

    I was also considering Lambie at Fullback, considering that Terblanche probably won’t be here for the Super 15. I would then put JPL at Flyhalf and Bosman at Centre (with Lambie covering their positions in case of injury)

  • Yep, its confirmed that Steve is out and it is a pity for the player, I like the thought of Lambie, but ideally would’ve wanted to see Meyer complete a season in the position, looking forward however to next season having JLP and Meyer Bosman available to us, plus, yes the youngsters already mentioned – Cronje is a prodigy himself, I am quitely confident and wish Steve a speedy recovery… Andre Pretorius is still 3 weeks away and I think should not be considered, lets use players with a future…

  • @CS (Comment 81) : agree on kockett, he has so so much skill, but he refuses to be a team player.
    ludik is definitely next in line at fullback, but stefan has the edge when it comes to cover at the back.

    lambie wants to be in the back line and this makes him a liability at 15, as he often leaves the back vulnerable and if mvovo and mapoe are on the field it could spell trouble. lambie is going to do well at 10. i have this little feeling.

  • @try time (Comment 84) : True, he likes to do a lot of clearing at the rucks too… he’s obviously very keen, but I think this is a weakness in his game, because as you say, it leaves the back exposed, especially if he’s at Fullback. But hopefully this is something that a strict instruction from his coach can sort out.

  • Petoors can be a great player and he’s had some really good games for the Lions and the Boks….his biggest problem was that he played very poorly once outside the borders of SA and sometimes even outside of Gauteng. I wouldn’t have minded Petoors 5 years ago but at 31 he could just stand in the way of a youngster(read Lambie) to develop into the great player he can be.

    The other option is Stef at 15 and Ludik at 13. But then we start this merry-go-round with player positions.

    Although fortunately in Lambie’s case, it appears he’s keen to do the job and give it a go.

    If he doesn’t work out then we still know we have JLP for the S14.

    If he does work out then JLP will be a great 12 and/or 10 backup
