The weekend culminates with a good old South African derby of massive proportions down in Cape Town, with the table topping Stormers taking on the ladder climbing Bulls. Should the Bulls lose, that would leave them with no chance of finishing second in the South African conference.

The Stormers are still without Peter Grant, which if he was playing, would have been a rather interesting battle with Morne Steyn, but instead we will see Steyn up against rookie Kurt Coleman.

The Bulls have had their own set back with Bakkies Botha not able to play, but his replacement is the evergreen Danie Rossouw.

This match kicks off at 18h10 and I predict a win for the Stormers.

Teams
Stormers:15 Conrad Jantjes, 14 Gio Aplon, 13, Jaque Fourie, 12 Jean de Villiers, 11 Bryan Habana, 10 Kurt Coleman, 9 Ricky Januarie, 8 Duane Vermeulen, 7 Francois Louw, 6 Schalk Burger (captain), 5 Andries Bekker, 4 Rynhardt Elstadt, 3 Brok Harris, 2 Deon Fourie, 1 Wicus Blaauw

Substitutes: 16 Tiaan Liebenberg, 17 Steven Kitshoff, 18 Frans Malherbe, 19 Anton van Zyl, 20 Nick Koster, 21 Dewaldt Duvenage, 22 Juan de Jongh

Bulls : Zane Kirchner, Gerhard van den Heever, Jaco Pretorius, Wynand Olivier, Bjorn Basson, Morne Steyn, Francois Hougaard, Pierre Spies, Dewald Potgieter, Deon Stegmann, Victor Matfield (c), Danie Rossouw, Werner Kruger, Gary Botha, Dean Greyling.

Replacements: Chiliboy Ralepelle, Rossouw de Klerk, Flip van der Merwe, Derick Kuun, Dustin Jinka, Francois Brummer, Stephan Dippenaar.

Match Officials
Referee: Jonathan Kaplan
Assistant referees: Mark Lawrence, Phillip Bosch

  • Congrats Bulls, bad luck Stormers. That was a great last 8min or so by Stormers. Had they played like that longer they could have won it.

    Not sure why Kaplan never played advantage at the end there, instead blew for full time? Don’t think that was right. Then like I have said on another blog, teams win some with refs and sometimes lose out. Something we all have to live with.

    Next week all to play for against the Bulls. Gonna be a hard game. Pleased we have Deysel back and hoping we have Alberts as well. Adi should start and Freddie also Bissie. We will have a better chance. Play like we done in the 2nd half and we could beat the Bulls.

  • @KSA Shark © (Comment 42) : That’s just the frustration.

    What I wanted to ask you is, do you think this tie breaker with most wins is fair?

    I don’t think it is. Let me tell you why.

    Let’s say team A and B have played 10 games. Team A have won 8 and lost 2. Team B have won 8 and drawn 2. Those two teams will then be equal on wins. Let’s say team A’s pd is better that means they are above Team B. I don’t think that’s fair as Team A has lost 2 and team B has lost none.

    What do you think? Have you ever thought of it from this angle, could they rather have gone with least losses being the first tie breaker decider.

    If they each have 8 wins, but one team has drawn 2 and the other has lost 2 then they wouldn’t be equal on points 🙂

  • What I think they should do is get an extra tie breaker table so to sorts. Give a team 2 points for a win 1 for a draw and 0 for a loss. And break the tie that way.

  • The issue I DO have with this new tiebreak is that is does TO A CERTAIN EXTENT negate the benefit that was once derived from BPs.

    As an example you have two teams level on points, one has won 1 more match than the other but the other has managed to get level on points by scoring the extra BPs required (thus playing the full 80min to get a losing BP or score that 4th try on a few occassions) to get higher up the log.

    On the old system they would then have gone to PD again benefitting the team with the better PD and potentially giving a big pay-off for the effort to get BPs.

    Now those BPS are nullified to a certain extent.

  • @Ben (Comment 52) : Team B got 4 more bonus points which needs to be rewarded. But if we went back to the old system the result would be the same, as the points difference is ultimately the decider. How would you suggest they do tie breakers?

  • I would love to find the article (pre-season) where we were discussing the possible finishing scores on the log and the amount of BPS were were awarding to teams.

    I think we gave the crusaders like 10 scored from the 16 matches. As it turns out in reality the HIGHEST number is only 6 try BPS by any team.

    IF you can guess who these two teams are without looking I will change my display name to whatever you want for 1 week.

    ONLY without looking.

  • @Ben (Comment 102) : You have a squad envied by many – they MUST take some of the responsibility. You may not like the Bulls (one little bit), but boy, we have a culture of “One for all, and all for one” and ” dis lekker”. That is why we sing stupid songs at Loftus – it’s part of a rugby culture which need no explaining to anyone but a Bull – and we luv it!

    The only reason why people dislike the bulls is that they where always and will always be a very successful team and many people is jealous of that success.

    Loftus bly een van die beste stadions om rugby te kyk

    Geluk aan die bulle hulle verdien dit 🙂

  • @BR (Comment 116) : Yep. what a place to watch rugby. :mrgreen: I have been in the fortunate position to have watched games at all the stadiums, and, in spite of my blue blood, I have to admit that it has something special about it. I do not like Kings Park (sorry) difficult to see anything unless you sit right on the lower stands, no atmosphere and too many “wannabe” rugby people who do not even realise that one wears a black t-shirt and not some designer-logoed top if you do not have a Sharks jersey – again, sorry, but that is how I’ve experienced it. 😉

    I have to admit the once I went to Kings Park I weren’t really impressed. Watched a numerous amount of bulls vs Sharks matches at Loftus and the “gees” is so different since the time I visited Kings Park I had the idee of if you want to relax while watching rugby go to Kings Park but if you want to ” gaan mal en jou longe uit skree” gaan Loftus toe. 😈

I, for one, absolutely enjoy the vibe and singing songs which would never be played in my home at any other time but at rugby time – YOU’RE SIMPLY THE BEST, KAPTEIN…, BABY CHOKLITS….WE ARE MARCHING TO PTA…. 😀 😀 What a great compliment to your team – make an arsehole of 👿 😀 😀 yourself 👿 😀 😀 👿

  • @BR (Comment 122) : 100% correct.

    In Durban we relax when we watch the Rugby because we are laidback.

    In PTA they they “skree” and “gaan mal” because they only know 2 emotions “happy/content” and “ek gaan jou opf?k”

    In Durban we have a family atmosphere with literally 1000s of children running around the outer fields with all teams celebrating the GAME whether it was won or lost.

    In PTA they have rowdy fools sitting on the back of bakkies on the side of the road throwing comments like “I’ll wipe that smile off your face” (although the grammar is not that good) and “hoekom smile jy? [email protected]@s” You DON’T want your children in this environment, well us Durban folk don’t.

    In Durban as a visitor you can enjoy the afterparty and banter even if your team won. Try that behind the klipdrift curtain?

  • Let me make it clear that there are plenty of good Bulls supporters out there.

    Sharks fans are arrogant and vocal, Bulls fans are arrogant and aggressive and I believe that is where the difference lies.
