Sharks succumb to Province

The Sharks succumbed to a 10 – 15 loss to Western Province at Mr Price Kings Park on Saturday night, giving the Cape Town team hope of reaching the play-offs and making life very difficult for themselves to get that all important home semi final.

The first half was an even affair with the half time score level on 7 all. The Sharks were first to score through powerhouse Jean Deysel in the 10th minute. The conversion from Bosman was good to take the early lead. The build up to the first try came after a shot at goal was turned down in favour of an attacking lineout.

Province had to wait until the 29th minute to score their first points, with a try by Danie Poolman. The conversion was Lionel Cronje’s first successful kick at goal, having missed three penalties in the first half alone. The first half also further worried the WP coach as two of his players went off injured, Heinrich Steyl stretchered off and JC Kritzinger coming off clutching his arm.

The second started much as the first half ended, with the game only really kicking into gear in the 60th minute, when Western Province took the lead through a Dewaldt Duvenhage penalty. It took 10 minutes for the Sharks to hit back and level the game through a Michalak penalty. The winning score came from Province scrumhalf Dewaldt Duvenhage, who followed through on a kick and dove over the line.

The Sharks made heavy work of a depleted Province team, still not able to get the basics right. Handling errors on the attack cost the Sharks as that last pass just would not stick on more than one occasion.

It must be said that the backline looked much better after the last minute shuffle, with Bosman starting at flyhalf and Adi Jacobs finally getting a Currie Cup start. With 20 minutes to go, Michalak was brought into the game and did not have the same effect as he had earlier in the season, seemingly still in some slump in form.

Credit to Province for coming up with only 22 fit players and playing a fantastic game, beating the Sharks at their own game and putting the Sharks under immense pressure for long periods in the game. Dewaldt Duvenhage was unsurprisingly named Man of the Match, who at 23, is the oldest player in the Western Province backline.

Sharks:
Tries: Jean Deysel
Conversions: Meyer Bosman (1/1)
Penalties: Meyer Bosman (0/1), Fred Michalak (1/1)

Western Province:
Tries: Danie Poolman
Conversions: Lionel Cronje (1/1), Louis Schreuder (0/1)
Penalties: Lionel Cronje (0/3), Dewaldt Duvenhage (1/1)

  • Maybe if they tried to play for more than 10mins per game, they’ll actually be able to win a game.

  • dam after thrashing the bulls in the first game I had high expectations for this campaign. The boys tried hard but their efforts seem misdirected, we really should have beaten this province team today. We still in with a shout, just look at the log, but some changes def need to be made if we gonna defend the cup. The other teams seem to be getting better whereas we seem to be getting worse!

  • how many times has bosman and the great stef screwed up? But they so good they deserve their 14th and 17th chance respectively. Adi knocks one ball on, however makes 2 line breaks but is the substitued because marius was having such a blinder, that only the coach can see. How does one go from being a player good enough from keep jacques fourie on the wing during the lions tour, only to be not good enough to be in a sharks starting 15 when 15 first choice players are at a world cup or injured. Disgrace.

  • The powers at Province must be smiling behind all the injury concerns. The forced development of their young stars in top level rugby, must put them in good stead for S15 2012. The Sharks on the other hand, have planned so well, that I will have a rugby and stress free year in 2012. I can not see that this old horse backline being competitive in a fast paced S15. We have no centre rescources. The game against the Stormers this year should have raised the alarm for Plum,as the
    Bok centre pairing made us look like school boys. Add to that the obvious lack of a “beer fetcher”.(We have kept Marcell Coetzee, but was that at the cost of not having place or funds for pursuing a fetcher?) But instead of preparing for the S15 he decided a gold cup is more important for the ego. The gold cup might be our very prestigous Currie Cup, but a serious development programme, giving young players a chance in a less intense Bok-less Currie Cup must have been 1st prize?

  • It’s absolutely baffling that certain players keep on making the Plum-grade. I have said it on another thread, I so hoped that Gouws Prinsloo gets an opportunity before Riaan Viljoen arrives next year. But alas, that chance will never really come, coz there are only two round robin matches left. Dok Craven always said, if your good enough your old enough. This is a “watered down” CC this year….the perfect opportunity to actually bleed these youngsters into the snr setup.

    The game was a compilation of bad rugby from both sides. Constant basic errors and constant penalties, mostly at the breakdown for going over the top or not releasing the ball. I think schoolboy rugby has less basic mistakes.

    We cant just say lets invest (meaning buy) in a centre or a fetcher. We ARE investing in players in the u21 setup. What is the difference? Buying JLP, Joubert and Bosman and having them play an absolute dull game with no inovation on attack and add Terblanche to that. Or play a youngster there who might not be “up to it”, but at least tries. We are playing bad rugby in anycase. It boggles the mind!! Its clear that the Sharks rely on Coetzee and much more on Deysel among the forwards and on their speedy wings, Mvovo in particular, in the backs.

    We need a no-nonsense type of person in the Sharks hierarchy who can tell a player, “mate, thanks but you are not good enough anymore”. Mallet’s contract expires after the WC.

  • We effectively last to a WP u21 side and our coaches won’t give our youngsters a chance in favour of geriatrics πŸ™ call me a pessimist but we won’t beat the Lions. this year’s cc is for either the Lions or Cheetahs :sob: hopefully something is done before SR! Or Kings park will be even emptier if that is pssible 😯

  • Locks a problem area as is center and has been for a while yet we still invest in wings ,fullbacks ,lforwards and front rowers galore.

    To me only skeate desrves a starting place .

    Next year;
    1.Beast
    2.Bismarc
    3.JDP
    4.Alberts(bet he will spend a large portion of the comp here)
    5.Skeate
    6.Daniel-I would have a look at coetzee here
    7.Deysel
    8.Kankowski
    9.Mcleod
    10.Lambie
    11.Mvovo
    12.Bosman πŸ™
    13.Stef πŸ™
    14.JPP

    Firstly, I don’t think Stef will be around next year.

    Secondly, you leave out Fred Michalak, who is contracted to us until the end of next year?

    I do agree that Skeate deserves a spot at lock, but Anton Bresler has done very little wrong so far this season.

    Willem Alberts should be locked in as the Sharks best/first-choice blindside flanker. He was made to play there.

    If anything I’d look at Jean Deysel as a part-time lock.

  • I hate to say it but i feel the lack of passion lies partly with the captain but also with the players. If you are a professional and cant get motivated for a Sharks/WP clash then im afraid your best position is barman at the outside bars! The number of schoolboy errors we made were shocking and I feel sorry for Plum. Yes he selects the guys but he cant catch and run and kick for them. If they perform at practise he has to play them! So look at the players first before blaming the gameplan etc.

  • @robdylan (Comment 22) :

    Nothing wrong with the lock reserves imo. Jan Andre Marais has not done anything wrong either. Thing he plays a decent game. So we have Skeate, Bresler, Hargs and Marais. Then we have the other Marais and du Toit at the u21’s. Think that is fair coverage, albeit not very experienced.

  • @ Comment 18,

    Alberts has to play in the loose forwards. We need two ball carriers which will allow Kankowski the freedom to find the gaps. An option would be to play him at 8 to get over the advantage line.

    Bosman will not necessarily be an automatic choice at inside center as Swanepoel will be back from France (i think). Outside center is a problem. We did not breed in yougsters, during the CC, which leaves us with Adi (whom Plum does not rate) and maybe Ludik if Riaan secures the fullback position.

  • @Ben (Comment 26) : I know ,stems from this “ultimate proffesional cr*p” that is thrown around some of our older players ,screw that I want players like schalk burger ,hardly proffesional but do or die attitude.

    @hendrikp (Comment 27) : Well I dont know it really only matters at scrum time ,nuts and bolts sought of thing .

    @KSA Shark Β© (Comment 28) : Why we didnt fight for him is beyond me ,guess its that proffesional attitude decaying our ranks.

    @JustPlainSHARK (Comment 31) : Not sure that would work ,imo 13 needs to be a clever distributor and link player, fb lines up pretty much the same as 13 just you need a bit more physicality in terms of speed and power at 13- lambie wouldnt be a bad 13 at all if he was a bit faster. Ludik on the other hand is a younger version of steff T ,Jacobs is the ideal 13 but I seem to agree with plum on playing him as an impact player

    Running lines etc. It matters playing a flanker at lock, especially from first-phase and second-phase.

    Alberts is no lock. Not going to debate it anymore but if Plumtree had half a brain he wouldn’t even be considering it.

  • @hendrikp (Comment 39) : Okay thats retarded ,running lines dont differ unless the game plan says A must be here and B there. When you say running lines are you talking on attack or defence, becuase on defence its more about a system ,no individual has to be in any exact place or have exact running lines otherwise anytime a tackle occured we would have huge gaps in our defensive structures ,players simply fall into place ,put their hand up ,communicate and act the role needed ,its all about an understanding of the system ,its all about player buy in and all players have to do is talk and observe. Dont know what you on about πŸ˜›

The thing is its a balancing act ,we have an abundance of looseforwards that are to handy to leave off the field and problem area at lock. Nevermind setpiece imagine having deysel ,daniels ,alberts and kankowski on the field all at the same time ,add to that beast bismarc and jannie and we would burry any team there is . Throw in marcell coetzee for daniels at half time and you will out muscle any team in the world.

Instead of actually talking about rugby it often digresses into an argument as a result ,so go ahead correcting people and expect more rubish arguments littering the threads ,im sure its what you want?!

    And by the way you come across arrogant when you correct spelling-Saying Just FYI is condescending- you infact also look like a chop. The more I look over my posts the more I see you jump to correct me, have a look comment 31… why so abrasive towards me?

    I sometimes put the “s” on to irritate peeps here, as a wp-supporter its immaturely fulfilling πŸ˜‰ think that maaay contribute to the sensitivity.

  • @Richard Ferguson (Comment 44) : The conversion was Lionel Crnje’s first successful kick at goal, having missed three penalties in the first half alone.

    I believe that Kuun’s surname actually has a “t” at the end in the original spelling.
