WP face tough decisions

There was an article in the Cape Times this morning where Director of WP Rugby Rassie Erasmus announced that Western Province and the Stormers won’t be suffering too much of a player exodus post-World Cup, with a few of the bigger names having already signed contracts and others in the process of finalising how many years they want their contracts to be.

Some of the names definitely returning next year are Gio Aplon, Juan De Jongh and Jean De Villiers, while it is believed that Schalk Burger and Jaque Fourie will be signing their contracts soon. Duane Vermeulen, Tiaan Liebenberg, Rynhardt Elstadt and Andries Bekker are believed to have already signed contracts too, but they are awaiting confirmation. Bryan Habana’s contract is still up in the air, we already know he was being chased by Toulon but was asking for too much money for them to be able to follow through. There will also be no new signings for the new season either, with Rassie happy to back the youngsters coming through, he made specific mention of Steven Kitshoff and Frans Malherbe, with the scrum beating the Stormers took obviously being the biggest worry going forward.

There is one player missing from that list who has had his name mentioned quite a bit in the past, having only started two games this season and featuring off the bench on about just as many occasions, but everyone can see his class and abilities already, that is one Johann Sadie. He has received two contract offers, one from Western Province and another from the Bulls, he is said to be a Province boy, but it seems if Jaque Fourie does sign, he will look to go north where he will be able to hopefully get more game time. If he stays in Cape Town he will be playing behind De Villiers, Fourie and De Jongh in SuperRugby before he will be seeing any game time. He will most likely be first choice in the Currie Cup while the Boks are away on duty, but since he’s had a taste of the Super tournament, I’m not sure he’ll be happy to settle for this, while it also messes with his chances of proving himself for Bok colours.

The reason I say the management needs to make tough decisions is because players like Sadie are the future, he is still able to provide many many years of service to WP/Stormers while players like De Villiers and Fourie will most likely only offer another year before seeking the retirement packages on richer shores. Let me share a quote from Ian Schwartz, the Bulls business manager: “We wanted him at school, but he is a real WP and Stormers man. He is a special talent. We believe that Johann can become a top Bok”, they recognise his talent, but above that his love and loyalty to WP get a mention, that is the exact player we should be looking to keep.

It might be time to let one of the big names of Jean De Villiers or Jaque Fourie go to keep the special talent of Sadie in the Newlands family. I hope they can convince him to stay, it will be heartbreaking to watch him run out in the pale blue jersey of the Bulls.

  • I would be seriously peeved off if we allowed Sadie to leave. 🙄

    I dont think we should hang onto JDV as we have De Jongh and Sadie who are definitely the best up and coming centres in SA.

  • I disagree Mol.

    The lesson every team learned this year is that a squad of 30 players in Super Rugby is simply not enough.

    Allister himself said they will need a minimum of 40 players fit and ready if they are to compete in this competition next year.

    To my mind, Stormers can and should guarrantee him game time (which is what he is after) because there is no way in hell Jean and Jaque can play 16 games. Sadie should see a min. of 6 games a season.

    That is just on rotation, not even mentioning injuries etc.

    Sadie will do well to remember that although Hougaard did get the game time promised at the Bulls, he was stuck at wing more than scrummie.

  • not sure how we going to replace F Louw. I would also be looking at a experienced 10. ….3 ….1 and 4 lock…

    With Fondse out of contention, Van Zyl leaving, F Louw off to Bath, I am surprised Rassie is not looking to bolster the squad. It is all very well backing the youth and bringing them through, but they will not win a Super title in 2012. It is about 40 players , and that Stormers tight 5 will not be up to the task next year unless we recruit.

  • @Morné (Comment 2) : That is very true, hopefully we will improve our rotation policy next year. Hopefully we can get some contract agreement going where he will see a minimum of so many minutes and we stick to it. Didn’t we promise much the same to Brent Russell?

    I hope we make some plan to get him to stay, he obviously wants to.

  • @Morné (Comment 3) : He is, but as I said, he will most likely only stay on for another year, where we could have Sadie for another 10 years, a long term solution.

    If you had to choose between the two, who would you pick?

    Maybe Rassie is pulling a sneaky?

  • @molly (Comment 10) :

    Honestly I would try and accommodate Sadie. I would put it in writing that he would get a minimum of ‘X’ amount of game time in Super Rugby given his is fit and conditioned but I will also make it very clear where he is in the pecking order.

    You simply cannot tell the likes of Jean and Jaque sorry, we are busy with a 10-year plan here…

    They are your first choice centers and what Sadie has to remember is under who do you want to complete your apprenticeship, Jean and Jaque or Wynand Olivier?

  • @Clayton(PJLD) (Comment 9) : The difference is that JdJ is playing behind 2 peeps and will be at least guaranteed bench duties, while Sadie is playing behind 3 classy centres, and will struggle to make a match day 22 ahead of those, unless we get our rotation policy working properly.

    When in the centre, dont pass the ball to anyone.

    Don’t Forget the Juniors

    05 July 2011 (08:12) – While all the attention has been on the Vodacom Super Rugby tournament which concludes with the final between the Reds and Crusaders this Saturday, The Sharks juniors have been quietly going about their business of preparing for the upcoming Absa Under 21 Competition.
    In preparation, The Sharks Under 21s travelled up to White River to play the Pumas Under 21s in a warm-up match on Saturday ahead of their competition which starts against the Blue Bulls next Saturday at Mr Price KINGS PARK.

    The team left early on Wednesday for a bus trip, with a flush out session when they arrived later that day. “On Thursday, we had three sessions – a gym session, a unit session and a full field session – with another two sessions on Friday before playing our game on Saturday at White River Rugby Club,” explains coach Sean Everitt.

    “The game went well – the score line of 67-17 suggests so – but there were a couple of mistakes that we can put down to rustiness and which we expected,” he adds. “We made a lot of unforced errors which was disappointing.

    “On the plus side, there were some good performances by loose forwards Terra Mtembu and Siseko Jafta and when Marcell Coetzee came, he was also very good. Pieter-Stef du Toit, a youngster, still only 18 years old, looks to be an exciting prospect (at lock). Cobus Reinach was also good.

    “We made a number of changes at half-time and the players came on acquitted themselves well also.”

    While Everitt admits that they had taken out of the game what they had wanted to, there are a few small things to work on before the season-opener next weekend.

    A few of the Under 21 players will be involved in The Sharks Compulsory Friendly match this coming weekend but otherwise, “the team will be working hard over the next two weeks to sort out those teething problems. They are minor and we can work on them.

    “We definitely got what we wanted out of the game and know what we need to work on, the mistakes we made are certainly fixable.”

    The Blue Bulls Under 21s were last year’s losing finalists and can be considered formidable opposition, even if the personnel have changed.

    “Games against the Blue Bulls are always going to be difficult, we know how strong they are at junior level, it will be challenging for us.”

  • J Fourie, J de Jongh and J de Villiers have how many Super rugby titles under the belt. Now compare that to W Olivier and then see where you can learn more. 😈
    Skills wise the WP guys may be better but they dont know how to win and its now becoming a recurring pattern. Go north young man.

    I suppose more people are going to see it on SW now that you’ve mentioned it than the number of people that would have happened to stumble across the tweet.

  • @robdylan (Comment 67) : Yip. I find his attitude of rather hanging in CT than with the boys in Dbn pretty shitty. I give him until the end of 2012 tops before he get’s “let go” by the Sharks.

  • For a minute there when reading this heading I thought it was

    Should we decide on:
    KFC
    McDs
    Pizza Hut.

    Then I remembered Ricky had retired and WPW doesn’t play for them. 😛

  • Heard last week from my Malmesbury sourches (Sadie and SlapTjips rooted from there and both Paarl Gim boys) Sadie is on his way to the Brutes. Hope they have it wrong.

  • @robdylan (Comment 67) : Marius knows fuckall about twitter OuBoet, at the moment he spend some quality time with his family on their hunting farm in the LangKloof.

    Altho I agree Bosman need some midfield defense. Maybe a bit of tackle bags may help him.

  • @robdylan (Comment 67) : Rob I agree with you Joubert is a royal TOOL, like JLP not really a team man…why do we buy these guys who a valueable to”French rugby” and not invest in our youngsters…the other thing…sadie was a good youngster, but other young centres where on his heals…he was given a presure chance and took it…we don’t give our youngsters a go, we still don’t know that we have invested in…
