  • @Mocho (Comment 7) : they still lost to northwood high last week biggest upset ever all they had to do was keep they discipline and they had a penalty but noooooo somebody had to throw a punch and bam they lost,penalty reversed kinda like last year against maritzburg college they discipline is lacking big time,as soon as they don’t get they way in the physical encounters and breakdowns you strip away a lot of they flash

  • So – quite interesting to see Glenwood coach Sean Erasmus playing a role here… my understanding is that he will be the Sharks under 19 coach as well this year.

  • Sorry but its a joke again, now its Kearsneys turn, Hilton has had theirs…guess who is the coach and from what school?Anyway things will never change so dont expect these school sides of ours to feed the Sharks it is rotten to the core!!Atleast we can depend on our feeder school Grey…what a pity the waist of the Northern Natal talent and smaller schools!!Their is a reason for all the GC boys included!!!!!!!! hahahaha what a joke!!

  • @Poisy (Comment 9) : Yeah they a physical bunch, and if you match the Green Barbarians they seem to resort to out of game stuff. I remember playing them back in school, and they would want to take the fight after the match.

    Hope Westville bursts the Green Barbarians Bubble, they been bragging they the best team in KZN. Tired of it now.

    Most of the Sharks players live in areas like Durban North. Northwood to be the next Grey College 😉

    @Viking (Comment 14) : Watch Fisher from Westville, he marshals the backline and breaks the lines.

  • @Mocho (Comment 16) : watch it I played for the green machine lol witch is why I am so tough on them,but you right,most of the guys are overly aggressive for no reason at all to be honest even at practice *sigh* westville has declined this year,kearsney however are looking good for a change,what year did you play for westville?

  • @basson (Comment 15) : Glenwood more than any other school in KZN leds itself to a very strict requirement that Craven Week has. No coach can get around this. Fortunately KZN have talented players to fall back on,many of them are in the Glenwood squad. Regions like Bulle, Lions, Valke, Pumas and Vrystaat all sweat on this requirement.

  • Well done to all the boys in the 3 rep teams on their achievements.

    For those that didn’t make it, it’s definitely not the end of the road. There are so many players to look to who’ve done well without going to Craven Week or Academy Week.

  • @Poisy (Comment 17).: lol? We ranked 18th in the country, beat Kearsney, ranked higher (although I’m against the whole ranking system) and only lost to one KZN team so far, MC in the 10 min on Goldstone. How have Westville declined?

    Yeah man. Its gna cost your’ll matches. Teams are going to pick up on Northwoods tactics and frustate them into errors. Similar to what the Bulls did to the Sharks 😉 lol.

    I hope DHS also make a comeback. The stronger KZN schools the better for Natal.

    I matriculated in 2007 u?

  • @Mocho (Comment 20) : I matriculated a year after you 2008,fnb ranking system is rather biased so don’t pay attention to that,glenwood are ranked 19 but they also beat kearsney ranked higher,and its especially biased when it comes to kzn schools is what I picked up over the years!,westville have declined just think a year or 2 ago you guys would only lose to glenwood in kzn and never by much! But now maritzburg had your number and I wouldn’t be surprised if glenwood gave you spanking, as for the aggression its just how they play,I wish they would expand they range we have so many good backline players but as usual forwards hog the ball ! All the time:)

  • @Mocho (Comment 22) : Ya, I happy for Jackson. But also for many others.

    I went to Kearsney so I’m chuffed about our season so far and for the 5 players who made it. The du Preez twins are still only 15 years old. They’re gonna go far.

    I spoke to Ungerer after the College Westville game. He’s out coz of concussion, so it was great that the selectors still opted for him despite him not playing trials. He is our no.1 talent.

    Tyler’s been awesome at times this season. Lwazi needs no intro to the tryline.

    When Sanele Nanto played for George Campbell against Kearsney, I thought he was man of the match.

    Mbhembe Payi is one of my favourite players. With the ball he is special, he has the wickedest sidestep.

    It was a predictable team to a large extend. I just thought Keegan Boulle deserved to be there and I was surprised at Matthew Worrall-Clare’s selection. I also don’t know anything about Klingenberg from Vryheid. Hopefully he’s a big strong lad.

  • @Poisy (Comment 41) : haha I’m 22. I’m not the youngest 😀

    Great idea Poisy!! U know what I taught. Why not give it to aspiring journalist students at the school. They probably know every detail of their school rugby team, including how much each player benches. Just get them to send an email to Rob every Sunday. They will get exposure, the school rugby team will get exposure and everyone will be pleased. Just give them some strict requirements and et them be.

    Imagine all his friends will want to read, and soon the whole school will read them. And we talking about 10 or more schools. Plus the parents. This site could grow to heights unimaginable. I hope Robs reading this. Just an idea . . . 😉

    Anyways I saw such a sad thing on ETV. Solly Tybilika (spelling) living down and out. He blames the Lions. Good example of what not to do as a rugby player.

  • @Richard Ferguson (Comment 61) : Sure. Might work might not. I live in Westville and involved a lot with the school. I’m sure they would be keen. Pupils are always thinking about their futures in school. So the prospect of being able to say that they post articles on such a reputable site like Sharksworld on their CV’s will be quite appealing.

If we for example send an email to each school saying we looking for any rugby loving aspiring student journalist who knows the ins and outs of school rugby to report back on each match. Also maybe some interviews with the players, and some news pre-match. Inform them to announce it at assembly or in the newsletters. Maybe we can reward the best journalist with some tickets or something from the Sharks.

  • @Poisy (Comment 67) : I can see it now. . School Rugby followers bantering each other after each match. Those students are the future Robs, Richards, Mornes, coaches, players. Dare I say it “KEO’s”

    Poisy u went to school recently. I used to swim a lot. You must have experienced Westvilles domination of the pool 😉 best swimming school in the country.

  • @Mocho (Comment 69) : I only learned to swim last year so I stayed far far away from that sport 😛 but yes I heard all over westville dominates and a certain mr chad la chros(spelling) proved it by going to the common wealth games and winning so many gold medals but as usual westville are slave drivers they made him take a teacher to keep up with school work lmao! I can imagine now him trying to pick up a chic there and the taecher rocks up hassling him about maths homework after just winning a medal 😀

  • @Poisy (Comment 71) : Bro its just makes me think, that sport is not life, and life goes on. Same thing happened to Baby Jake in boxing when he got older. Hope SARU manage to do something for him or one of his Ex-team mates help him out a bit.

    Haha yep typical Westville that. Also had Charl van Zyl commonswealth silver medalist and Chad HO, Olympic swimmer form the same era I was in the team. It was not easy though. When I got to the school DHS used to dominate the pool. And we only beat them at the D&D once in my 5years. Reason being they had a guy that was ranked 2nd in the world in my age group. Aaah I miss school 🙁

    Hahaha shame everything happens for a reason but well done for making the team!

    Haha I don’t miss school at all to be honest,it was fun but not that fun.besides I did more debating than rugby hence why I’m a law student lol

  • Lets keep an eye on these centres… I really hope to see some young dynamism coming through the seniors… They have to be there… I don’t want old merc’s coming through and pretending to love our jersey when really they love our climate and our big paycheque…. I want to see a team that LOVES the jersey – because they wanted to be in it since they ran out of the tunnels at school…

    We have had those guys in the past – and we want them again…

  • @DarkDestroyer (Comment 84) : Good luck with that notion. I love our local SBR and the players but fact remains, we don’t produce enough talented players to sustain a top pro team. If we relied on our own steam we’d probably be back in the B- section of the Currie Cup.
    Loving the jersey is an advantage Unions like the Bulls, Vrystaat and WP have over us. Many more talented kids grow up supporting and dreaming of play for those teams one day. That’s why I believe that the Sharks are the most professional team in SA. We contract these players and find a successful substitute for that natural love of the jersey.

  • @beet (Comment 86) : No for sure – I do completely understand buying in – look at some of our purchases that we have made.
    Bismarck
    Jannie
    Eugen Van Staden
    Beast
    Jean Deysel
    Mostert
    Alberts
    Ludik

    etc etc – but I don’t like how we have managed our centres… And am peeved that there has been local talent that was talent to have vanished. Then we purchase Marius Joubert… Hence I say there must be talent out there… And we need to develop them…

    We have a pretty big KZN backline no.9:1.87m, no.10:1.90m, no.12:1.90m no.13 +/-1.93m

  • Regarding getting shools to submit results/match reports etc, I presume that all the schools would have newspapers and reporters that write for these papers, it may be a good place to start with them, who knows it could even be incorporated as part of their tasks and they could be evaluated on it.

    I know Pionier well, no was just saying that I yhink PIO is the abbreviation for Pionier, it wasnt mentioned amongst the earlier explanations.

    I see that Pionier have focused on sevens and have done really well there in a national context.
