Replacements: 16 Willie Wepener, 17 Rossouw de Klerk, 18 Gerrit-Jan van Velze, 19 Arno Botha, 20 Justin Dinka, 21 Francois Brummer, 21 Francois Venter.

  • Sharks need to seriously step it up this week. A repeat of last week`s performance and we`re gonna get stuffed.

  • Dustin Jinka should number 20, Brummer 21 and Venter 22. That’s how it is on the official Blue Bulls website.

  • As long as Meisiekind is at 12 we have very little to fear from that backline.

  • @Ben (Comment 11) : It is being edited, I think. Jinka has been added from the original. I think the official website had skipped Jinka at first, we are not the only site that did not have him in there.

  • How Charl Mcleod ever made it above Janno Vermaak in the Springbok pecking order is beyond me…

  • keegan was comprehensively outplayed by derrick minnie last saturday, let’s see if he can redeem himself against a rookie like Warwick Tecklenburg 😐

  • @John Galt (Comment 16) : One thing we have learned over many matches with the Bulls, a back three with Daniel, Botes and anyone else is just not going to cut it against the Bulls. If Botes is to come on, he has to replace Daniel, so that we can keep the two large loosies on the pitch with the Bulls.

  • @robdylan (Comment 23) : Spending some time at work now. Still have a tree on my house, well, maybe by now they will have started to remove it today. Power is out, power company had to drop the powerline since the tree was on it, and the line was live. Coming along slowly.

  • I would go with this combination.

    15 Terblanche
    14 Sithole
    13 Ludick
    12 Adi
    11 Mvovo
    10 Michalak
    9 Mcleod
    8 Keegan
    7 Deysel
    6 Botes
    5 Hargreaves
    4 Bresler
    3 Van Staden
    2 Burden
    1 Chadwick

    If Ludick can play on the wing he`s worth the risk at 13 and we desperately need to shake something up in mid-field.

  • @Original Pierre (Comment 28) : I agree, we need to shake up the Centres, and Ludik has played wing for the Lions a fair bit in the past. However, what I would like to see is Adi to get a chance to start a string of matches outside Bosman, and see if they can gel. I think Bosman’s problem is not that he is running away from support (I would argue that is not possible, since a ball carrier should look for space and make as many metres as possible, with the onus being on the support runners to be there to support him), but rather that Stef and the loosies are not on his shoulders looking to take the pop pass after his break. Adi runs superb lines and in my opinion, also runs superb support lines and would be there to support Bosman more than Stef has been. Hence why I would like to see a Bosman/Adi combination.

    I don’t like the idea of starting Adi at 12 the first start he gets in a long time, while he can play 12, it is not his best position (13). I would like to see him given the opportunity to make the 13 jersey his once again.

  • @Dancing Bear (Comment 30) : You’d think giving Adi an extended run outside Meyer Bosman would be a no-brainer, but alas, for reasons unfathomable it is about as unlikely to happen as me buying a Beyonce cd. Which is never. Never ever. Not even at gunpoint. Or bazookapoint. Or intercontinental ballistic missilepoint. I think I’ve made my point.
