We finish the weekend at the best stadium in world rugby, good old Kings Park, where we will be seeing a massive battle between the Sharks and the Bulls, a game that is set to decide which of the two teams will be contending towards the end of the season.

The Sharks have a few concerns in the loose forwards where Kankowski has been ruled out with a jaw injury and Keegan Daniel being suspended for this match, which has forced Plumtree to select Botes, Deysel and Alberts as the loose trio, which could work really well or it could come back to haunt us. The coach has also stuck to his guns, or should I say water pistols in the midfield, with Adi Jacobs remaining a bench warmer.

The Bulls come off a few good games where they are starting to show some of the form we were all expecting to see at the beginning of the season. The battle between Morne Steyn and Pat Lambie will be very interesting to see unfold as both are in some decent form at the moment, the only difference being that the Bulls have a class scrumhalf in Fourie du Preez to feed Steyn.

This humdinger of test match proportions kicks off at 19h10.

Sharks – 15 Louis Ludik, 14 Odwa Ndungane, 13 Stefan Terblanche (c), 12 Meyer Bosman, 11 JP Pietersen, 10 Pat Lambie, 9 Charl McLeod, 8 Willem Alberts, 7 Jean Deysel, 6 Jacques Botes, 5 Alistair Hargreaves, 4 Steven Sykes, 3 Jannie du Plessis, 2 Bismarck du Plessis, 1 Beast Mtawarira.
Subs: 16 Craig Burden, 17 Eugene van Staden, 18 Gerhard Mostert, 19 Marcel Coetzee, 20 Conrad Hoffmann, 21 Adi Jacobs, 22 Lwazi Mvovo.

Bulls – 15 Zane Kirchner, 14 Bjorn Basson, 13 Jaco Pretorius, 12 Wynand Olivier, 11 Francois Hougaard, 10 Morné Steyn, 9 Fourie du Preez, 8 Pierre Spies, 7 Dewald Potgieter, 6 Deon Stegmann, 5 Victor Matfield (c), 4 Bakkies Botha, 3 Werner Kruger, 2 Chiliboy Ralepelle, 1 Dean Greyling.
Subs: 16 Gary Botha, 17 Rossouw de Klerk, 18 Flip van der Merwe, 19 Danie Rossouw, 20 Derick Kuün, 21 Francois Brummer, 22 Gerhard van den Heever

  • So, I kinda feared we were gonna lose cos of the weak lineouts and huge deficiency at lock: seems its coming to pass.

    We can’t concede set-pieces like that, while the locks aren’t even being effective at the rucks.

  • Our predictability on attack is making it easier for the defence: much like with the Stormers.

    Lambie needs to take responsibility to create some variety – and the big runners need to move one out from the rucks and run from deep.

We just got fooled by the high scores we gave the players whilst they played crap..players given 7/10 whilst the score should have been 4/10….what a let down of a season…coaching is clearly not right.

  • Whenever a team as fronted up to the Sharks, they have looked impotent. I wouldnt be shocked if they get held without a try. The more desperate the sharks become, the more mistakes they make, the more predictable they are to defend. This is like watching a reply of the Stormers game

  • If you wanna know why Alberts is looking so poor today, it might just have something with the amount of rugby he has had to play so far.

    Plumtree’s poor player management and 1-dimensional strategy may just be catching up with him.

  • Big Fish I agree with you. We show no commitment at the breakdowns and thake ages to get there. What I’m saying is what’s the use of Beast runiing sideways? All he is doing is eating up the space of the backline.

  • @Ben (Comment 97) : Coaching mate…Plum thought the new rules meant not sending numbers to the breakdown…he only realized that you still need send numbers to the breakdown only 3 weeks ago, by that time it was too late, the other teams where too far ahead in their training..Take the Stormers for example, as soon as a player goes down, 3,4 players are there to clean, they’ve been doing it since last year mate..it’s now second nature. Again, if we are not going to get to the breakdowns quickly then Mcleod needs to get there quickly to clear the ball.

  • We need to move Alberts and Deysel further out from the breakdown on attack – run at their secondary defenders.

    We also need more structure on attack – bring the back 3 into the game by creating space inside. But we struggle to do that with ourmidfield. Lambie needs to attack Steyn’s channel to make up for that.

    If the chasers are in front of him? One would hope so: only way to put the rest of the team on-side.

    There is no way anyone can claim that we lost the game at wing: we lost this up-front, and the midfield lack of creativity didn’t help.

    Plumtree needs to take this on the chin and go back to the drawing board. He is wasting some serious talent with his game-plan.

Almost lost to the Rebels, were lucky against the Force as they had our number before they had a player red carded. Not even a bonus point from this game! Plum, Bash, the other guy and Rudolph are a bad combination. Decision making, strategy is no good.

    Stormers (twice) and Bulls tonight beat the Sharks through one thing and one thing only…

    They bullied them…

    Don’t ask me for any specific analysis, because looking at the Sharks team you would never thing names like Bis, Jannie, Sykes, Deysel, Alberts etc. will get bullied – but they did.

    For the Sharks to turn this around, and there is till time – they need to figure out where their physical edge to their game has gone – because they have turned into soft cocks (sorry).

    This is not the Sharks team that won the CC 8 months ago.

  • @Morné (Comment 179) :
    You really think its inexplicable?

    I think its mainly due to lack of player rotation and the fact that our play is predictable.

    We always use flat passes to the big ball carriers just one off the ruck, and we run singly, instead of small pods. Also, the carriers always go to ground, instead of looking to pass in the tackle.

    I reckon the forwards could still be effective if they address the above.

  • @Morné (Comment 179) : Could it be that we got our pre-season traing wrong? 0ur guys are always massive but this year our guys look like kids. Take a look at kanko, Bissie, Alberts, Jannie and Hargreeves, they are all smaller this year. Could be why we getting Bullied.

    Ja sure, one game is enough to condemn him, but Oupa can fail all season and we must keep on backing him.

    The Bulls won the 2007 S14 with Jaco vd Westhuizen: does that make him a good player?

    Everyone says Ricky Januarie is useless, but he was twice in the squad that pulverised us this year.

    I believe Stefan can add value at 15, but he is not, and will never be, a 13.

    Seems only some Sharks fans can’t see this.

  • Surely if you want to take on people physically you should be well conditioned to do that. Plum thought we would run teams off their feet so worked on our fitness more than strength. Didn’t think that we would have to dominate teams phsically first before getting the ball. It’s not such a train smash in the sense that t can I can be fixed.my only concern is how did we get it wrong… Surely Mark Steale should have known better!!

  • @Big Fish (Comment 204) : Everyone has been telling us how good a player he is and how he will make a difference if only he could start.

    Well certainly saw the difference it made when he slipped off the 1st tackle he was required to make in the game.

    Adi is (should be) destined to come on when the other players are tired and he looks good. Which is the role he has had at the Sharks for Years.

    I have not said Terblanche is not at fault but last night when they both started on fresh legs I know which one looked better to me.

  • @GreatSharksays (Comment 218) : it’s not such a train smash in the sence that it can be fixed. Commenting using BBM is a mission. Our pre-season training let us down guys, our boys are still good…they just need to get better conditioned for starters.

  • Hi ll, thanks for the congratulations.
    Don’t want to gloat too much, or sound patronising.

    But i have to come here and say how proud i am of my team. I didn’t think it was possible for us to dominate alberts, deysel, bismarck and beast, but we did it very well. That first 40 was some of the best defence i have seen from my side in a while.

    Now your team must regroup and bounce back to beat the waratahs, for both our team’s play-offs chances!

  • We played so pathetic,I am embarrassed to be a sharks supporter today.
    But the upside is if we could have gotten our own line outs in order that would have been 2 tries less to the bulls.
    The bulls will get there reality check soon.

  • @bloubulblog (Comment 223) : I would love to see an informed “where it all went wrong” article that is truely objective without trying to promote or attack any players.

    This is the same team that went 4 from 4 at the start of the season before we stalled AFTER our tour.

  • @ KSA, agree Jacobs was not good, but the argument is still that Stefan and Bosman haven’t been consistent after many starts, as Big Fish said earlier to condemn Jacobs after one start this season is surely unfair…

  • @ KSA, the only confirmation are the fact that he started what many ask for, he did not play well, so be it, who really stand out on the night anyway, I still believe that rugby are played by quality ball being set-up by forwards, good line-outs, scrums, rucks, mauls pick-up and drives, and then magic can be created by the backs, it’s actually a simple game being made difficult…I rather leave my opinion on condemnation part out of respect for anyone’s opinion or preference 😉

  • @ KSA, from a different angle, if Jacobs had a blinder no matter the result, I trust my instinct that you would say that it was only one game and that you would give credit on consistent performances as a starter 😉

  • Reading through all the posts it is obvious we are all hurting and want to blame someone for playing badly or picking wrong players etc etc etc
    So how bad was it We lost by 10 to the side that are the champs We outplayed them in the 2nd half and we slept in the first
    Yes a few lineouts went astray some tackles were missed and we should have hit the ground running but we didnt
    So is our season over? are we out of the running? This competition changes week to week Next week we beat the Tahs Bulls lose to cheetahs or Stormers lose to Brumbies(If the lions can produce that one performance why cant the Brumbies)and all of a sudden we are favourites again Guys take a Chill Pill it will all work out
    Yes we need to fix things Lineouts Defence and the loose trio-Keegan and Hof back this week please- and Smitty needs to return but a train smash No not yet This was the !st game after a break and all the side coming back after a Bye have not looked world beaters
    We are not the perfect side that some think we are Well not yet anyway
