Deysel not yet ready to play

Jean Deysel’s rehabilitation after a serious knee injury is well on track, but despite reports to the contrary last week, the tough-as-nails flanker is still at least a month from making his return to competitive rugby.

The Sharks XV are heading to Newcastle on Friday to play in a warm-up match and a local newspaper created a fair bit of interest by suggesting that Deysel would be playing. Sharksworld have confirmed that while Deysel will indeed be making the trip with the side and taking part in various marketing (and golf) related activities, he certainly won’t be pulling on the white and black jersey this week.

Recent training-ground photos would suggest that while the 25-year-old is taking part in some training activities, his knee is far from 100% and still needs regular icing. One source close to the team has suggested that his return to the field of play is somewhere between 6-8 weeks away, meaning a probable gradual introduction via the Vodacom Cup, followed by a return to the Super Rugby squad in time for the second half of the campaign.

Deysel’s ongoing unavailability creates a clear gap in the squad for a ball-carrying loose forward to fill. Jacques Engelbrecht seems earmarked to be that player, while young loose forwards such as Lambert Groenewald and Marcell Coetzee will want to use their Vodacom Cup opportunities to prove that they also deserve a shot at Super Rugby selection.

  • Rather get it in tip top before sending him to the battlefields! Wishing Jean a full recovery!

  • We clearly need Engelbrecht as an extra big ball carrier…just hope we get the confirmation soon. Then we have 3 really solid and big ball carriers from the looseforwards. Now Alberts can play 8 more often cause Kanko seems to play quite a lot now and then. Have not seen Much of Marcell, but he looks to be a good prospect. Also would like to see Adonga develop further in The Sharks XV and Hopefully he gets a good run fro the first team in the Currie Cup. Also keen to see What Francois Kleinhans can do…the depth in our rugby is great…how awesome it is to be A Sharks supporter!

  • We must not rush Deysel…we get him to 110% then we bring him back…he is going to make a huge impact when he returns…so much to look forward to this season…truly awesome rugby year.

  • @robdylan (Comment 19) : The insert was on BVS being brought in for the kicking, and they cut to JLP who spoke about BVS, and how he is settling in nicely and enjoying the vibe. Plum must know what role he wants him to play, and he certainly looked and sounded like a man with more idea of his role in the squad now, and less like someone skulking on the bench with his nose put out of joint by the rise of The One and Only SuperPat…

    1) One (which is better when it’s not them performing it)
    2) Stuck in a Moment
    3) actually I lied. There isn’t a 3rd one that I like. All I Want is You is passable.

Here’s a bit of rugby trivia: when they toured SA in December 96 I bought him a Springbok No 6 jersey for his birthday, which he wore for part of the Durban gig.

  • @Pokkel (Comment 83) : They played three songs off their new album. And then the classics.

    It’s ironic the Rob gives them grief about being “samey” because their new stuff and Pop shows that they’re prepared to experiment.

    I mean, how creepy is this? Caucasian male, approaching 40, happily married with kid, polite, respectful towards his elders, love his parents, kind to animals… although, in fairness, come to think of it, that’s pretty much the profile of most of the notorious American serial killers 😈

  • @robdylan (Comment 108) : There’s no comparison, even with the Epi’s. Phil’s first guitar was an SG, the sound was amazing, even compared to the Jacksons. Never rated Fenders. I know Hendrix loved them, but I always thought that Fenders were for people who couldn’t spell Gibson!

  • @SharonvanWyk (Comment 112) : well, both brands have their fans, of course – and a guy like Clapton can do completely bezerk things with a Strat too. Listen to the intro to Phil Collins’ “I wish it would rain down”, for example. Not bad sustain for a bolt-on πŸ™‚

  • @robdylan (Comment 117) : True. I think I got a negative mind-set against the Strat because I hated Ritchie Blackmore with a vengeance. I pissed him off once by asking him if he was David Coverdale.

  • @bergshark (Comment 37) : In response to the query on Jaco- he is playing club rugby in Dbn this year after being deemed “too small” by those in their selection capacity at the Sharks.
    If you want to know how good he is just try play touch rugby with the guy…he will somehow manage to steal the ball from you while you running with it! I guess he just doesnt fit into the game plan though.

  • @Dancing Bear (Comment 127) : they are beautiful, DB… no doubt about that. Problem is, for me, I could never afford one. If there was a cheaper version of the PRS, just like the Epiphone is a cheaper version of Gibson, I would be seriously tempted.
