  • Penalty Lions on 22 – offsides by Sharks under pressure.

    They kick for touch and AP overcooks the kick. Poor kick-off – and we under pressure again.

  • sharks putting together some nice passes and pick and drives. Some good runs by Pat and JPP so far. Only problem is rusty handling.

    Lions also looking sharp, esp Murray and a buffer Chavanga.

  • First scrum penalty to Sharks – Beast working Cilliers.

    Smit loses his second lineout so far – been good in the loose, not so good here.

    Beast wins a turnover scrum – Cilliers struggling.

  • Great steal by Minnie wins a penalty for Lions. Lineout at halfway.

    Adongo running past me looking freaking huge.

    Stupid high tackle call against JPP. He then makes amends by jumping an up-and-under into touch, winning a lineout back in Lions territory that Barney throws skew. Again.

  • It is Cilliers. Beast concedes a scrum penalty. An exciting period results in more handling mistakes and a Lions scrum on our 22.

    JLP on for Bosman. Penalty kicked by the former to Lions 22 – hands in ruck.

    Lovely ands by a number of Sharks – esp JLP and Bosman results in Pat scoring a good try. Conversion of medium difficulty.

    Alberts and JPP starting to make some yards now. Mcleod also distributing well.

    Kick missed.

  • Sharks look very rusty – which is still ok. Concerns should be over some handling by Pat and throw-ins by Smit. Also some poor defence at times.

    All in all, mostly a case of rustiness.

    Lions looking good, especially Taute, Chavanga, Minnie and Murray. AP also made a few good breaks and passes.

    Mostert on for Ali, Mvovo on for Odwa.

    Thanks for the updates BF.

    Hope Hargreaves is okay.

    Has there been any Lions subs ?

  • Ref blowing us up very often for off-sides.

    Lions score again after some slick hands. Easy conversion for Burton (on for AP).

    Lions lead 17-5.

  • @KSA Shark © (Comment 96) : It’s just a warm-up, the first match against Super Rugby / Currie Cup opposition this year if I’m not mistaken. The Lions had their rusty-ness against the Stormers, we’ll have a much improved performance next match (vs Stormers).

  • @Ben (Comment 100) : These games are just for trying out things Ben. Hope though on Saturday we play with whoever we think should start against Cheetahs for the first 40min before we take players off. This game we needed to give everyone a run. That way you can’t really worry too much about a win or a loss really.

Think on Saturday we will start with those players and play for longer with them in their positions before taking them off. Will see a better game on Saturday even if we don’t win. Not too worried, well will be if we play like this against Cheetahs. We will work on things buddy.

    Okay,let’s wait for s15 proper to begin,and see what the sharks can do..when it counts..perhaps lions bit more fired up than sharks? Which is fine,don’t want the guys to pick up injuries in a warm-up game..just as long as we hammer them in the s15..and later in the cc.mand do the same to them next season.

  • Same start as last year! If they give us the same SR as last year I swear I am going to stop watching rugby and take up swimming or chess or something 👿

  • @Sharksmad – The Blog’s Dudette (Comment 192) : Rather judge them against the Cheetahs. We will be fine. Plenty changes, we can’t take too much out of this game.

    Next game will be better.

    Now out of here. Cheers

  • Steady on there guys.

    We are Sharks SUPPORTERS not CRITICS!

    We have ALL been saying these are warm-up games and the result is of limited importance. lets remember that.

  • @ Puma, KSA you are right but its emotional to witness such a clap, even though your head is saying one thing your heart is saying another but I am and will remain a Shark forever

  • Not a good result but obviously the guys have not been doing much “non-conditioning” work, it will get better but the question is will it be better enough by the time the cheetahs come to town. I honestly think it’s naive to just shrug this off as a bad night at the office. The Sharks need to get a lot better and quickly, we can’t afford another bad start to the season.
