Sharks need to shore up the scrum

Naka Drotske was yesterday drawn into making a few comments that suggest the Cheetahs will ‘target’ the shaky midfield defence of Meyer Bosman as they aim to turn the tables on the Sharks this weekend. While this will, I’m sure, be part of their strategy, the shaky Sharks scrum is sure to be another area for the Cheetahs to attack.

A lot has been said about selection for the Sharks, with John Smit’s form at loosehead coming under fire (quite predictably). While it is beyond discussion that the Sharks scrum was woeful against the Waratahs last weekend – in fact, it’s safe to say that this once-exemplary facet of play for the Sharks has been shaky all season – I feel that blaming particular individuals doesn’t get to the root of the problem.

Simply put, the Sharks pack as a whole appears the be coming under pressure in the scrum due to poor technique. Smit is himself far from blameless in this, but blaming him and him alone when the whole front row engages with bent backs and heads down is unfair. The difference in body position between the Waratahs and Sharks was palpable, with the Aussies setting up lower, straighter and tighter than the local boys, who duly disintegrated in virtually every scrum. In fact, the only tight forward in the whole 22 who appeared to be doing his own basics well at scrum time was young Wiehahn Herbst when he came on. The others, quite frankly, look as though they have forgotten the art of scrumming entirely. Perhaps, once again, a lack of specialist coaching in this area has led to an erosion of the players’ core skills?

I mean, if my own idiot-level analysis can spot this after a single viewing of the last game, I shudder to think what the Cheetahs, low-budget though they may be, will have learned from the interpretations of their dedicated scrum coach, Os du Randt.

Changes have been made, with Gerhard Mostert brought in to add a little more weight on the loosehead side. This might work, but only if the second row binds tighter and sets lower than they did against the Waratahs. The addition of Ryan Kankowski at 8 might also backfire; Keegan Daniel’s superb hands saved the Sharks a few blushes last week, whereas the Hoff has never been known for accurate control of the ball at the back of a retreating scrum.

This is not to say that Bosman will escape attention, though. His defence has been shaky from the set phases all season and with the Cheetahs scrum potentially rampant, he may find himself with a lot to do in defending that particular channel. His penchant for 50-50 offloads and hesitation before contact will also not have gone unnoticed by the Cheetahs coaching staff, who will doubtless have devised strategies to capitalise from both.

  • “Cheetahs will β€˜target’ the shaky midfield defence of Meyer Bosman” yip, that’s how they can beat us. What does Bosman say to the couch that keeps him on the starting line-up; because it is not by merit that warrants.

  • Coenie is a poor scrummer too – but the Cheetahs pack tight and scrum as a pack. The Sharks only really hit from the T5.

    To be honest, I’m not quite sure that the scrum is a major issue anymore – it certainly doesn’t seem to help US when we dominate the scrum.

  • Have to agree with Rob here , a scrum is not dependent on one person but all 8 as a unit

    Also people are not seeing through Naka’s big mouth??

    He speaks of our weaknesses ? I watched last weekend and saw many from his own team , like his flyhalf that dreads having to takle anything bigger then a midget , like Russouw ran all over him

    Oosthuizen is a penalty machine because of his weak scrumming etc,
    And his lineouts were woeful to say the least.

    Nowhere have i read anywhere on any site or in any press where the Sharks have asked the Cheetahs for a favour???????????? how arrogant is this clown??

    I am sure the Sharks feel and know they are good enough to beat the Cheetahs without expecting favours, and if they lose it will be simply the better team won on the day , but there has been no request for favours…………………….

  • I expect things to be betrter than what people think!

    (1) Bosmans defence to be better this week! Having played with the cheetas he will know each players individual attacking styles…
    (2) Stats say that the sharks scrum was not as bad as what it looked. The issue is about getting Good ball and with Mostert and Sykes playing lock and Alberts on blind I expect a stronger showing. We might even dominate

  • Sharks must forget about playing fairytale rugby

    Do the basics upfront and dominate the cheetah scrum and that will negate the flair and the likes of Ashley, the man with a mop lol

    as soon as you tighten the game you take out AJ for example

  • Coenie gives away umpteen PKs per game so we had very little to fear there if he was playing.

    We can only hope that Bosman lifts his game against his old team mates, like most players do.

  • @CapeShark (Comment 22) : if he doesn’t manage to step up this week, then I don’t know.

    He’s a player who likes to try and do things, but somehow they’re not coming off. I really do admire his willingness to offload, but he needs to communicate better so that his teammates know when they’re coming. I noticed when Swannie came on on Saturday he immediately started marshalling the defence – talking all the time and helping the guys line up. I haven’t seen Meyer doing that

  • Scrum isn’t an issue what you should be worried about is Sias’ up and unders on Mvovo and Viljoen chasing them and Sias and his brother giving our mind field a long day in the office. Focus on the real issues, scrum, not a real issue. We’ve handled their scrum well for over a year now.

    It does not interest itself in games of no significance such as this one between the Kings and a Premier bunch of hasbeens with the odd good player thrown in for entertainment.
