SA vs Sharks

A phrase that we seem to be hearing a lot these past few days is: “They deserve it”. Blah…blah…blah…
The heat is on, and it’s cooking time. Time for the Currie Cup Final!

I am sorry for all you sentimental fools out there, but I do not for one second think the Lions “deserve” the trophy. For what bizarre reason do you think they do? This, people, is only the biggest local rugby competition in South Africa, and for me it’s about grinding out a win.

Who will give the best display on the day. Who would play the hardest game. No one “gets” a trophy, you bloody-well WORK for it.

If the Lions “deserve” it, well, then so does the Sharks. We ended second on the log, albeit grinding out wins and it was not always “pretty” rugby. BUT. We showed why we were second on the log and why we are where we are, by beating the Cheetahs last weekend. So, in my opinion both teams in the final deserve to be there. And therefore, as much as the Lions deserve it, so do we!

Unfortunately there can only be one winner.

Why is it that the whole of SA non-Sharks supporters all of a sudden became cameoing Lions supporters? Because they got no Springboks in their team? Well for the main part of the season, neither did we. Because they won? Well so did we.

On this point, I would like to point out that, again in my humble opinion, we showed that we are a Champion side. We didn’t win pretty, but in many matches, trailing with some plenty points, we still manage to get that win. Now if that is not awesome and show determination, I do not know what does!

Let’s face facts. It’s NOT going to be easy. Over the last 6 years, it was always the home team who were victorious and lifted the beautiful cup. So this is our biggest challenge – nullify the home ground advantage. Pitch up in thousands. Support our team. I have sat many a time at Loftus, feeling that I was in the stands at Kings Park. IF you can get there – support the boys!
Yes – the lions are sentimental favourites. For various reasons. The main one being that they have not won a thing in YEARS, so now the rest of SA wants them to win. (Nobody had sympathy for us when we had to wait 12 years). So count me out of “one of SA”for this one”. When it comes to the Sharks, I am rather a heartless tough cookie. You stuff with the Sharks, you stuff with me….

Let’s look at some finals stats for the Lions:
In the 18 finals the Lions have played:
At home: They won 1, drew 1 and lost 4 – 17% success rate.
Away: They have won 6 and lost 6 – 50% success rate.
In all 18 finals, they won 6, drew 1 and lost 10 – thus a 39% success rate.
Does that sound like they “deserve” it..? Just because they have played some decent rugby in ONE Currie Cup season?

The Currie Cup is OURS…and we are NOT gonna let go without a fight. You bet you Lions supporting ass on that!

  • Every Shark supporter wants the Sharks to win the cup. I’m sure of that. I don’t think that anyone thinks that the Sharks don’t deserve to win it though. Most people will support the ‘underdogs’ if they can’t support their own team.

  • @robdylan (Comment 2) : Having a second team is just an excuse to drop your team when the going gets tough. The Lions created their own problems so there is no reason to feel sorry for them. If people don’t like the Sharks and therefore support the opposition that is obviously their own choice but the Lions need to win the final to deserve it.

    I’ve heard about this before. Apparently some victims of abuse find that the only way to overcome the trauma is to learn to love the perpetrator.
    It happened to Patty Hearst and Lawrence of Arabia, and after the violation of your team last week, it has apparently happened to you.

    So sad. 😥

    If they ever find their way out of the first division or get a SR spot I will pick a different first division team though. I think it’s important to take an interest in that side of the CC too.

  • You can’t say the Lions didn’t improve their game. They won 3 games in the Super15, won 0 last year. Was able to top the CC log after playing better rugby than the last couple of CC and beat a full strength WP in the CC semi final convincingly. They have made a step in the right direction but I don’t think they will pull it of against the Sharks it will be close I say Sharks 23 Lions 21 but hoping Lions will win it

  • @Bloubloubul (Comment 44) :

    I’m actually starting to change my mind on the Bulls heading forward. I did think they would be terrible the next couple of years, but…

    – I think Chilliboy is an excellent hooker who will only be better for not rotating with Gary Botha.
    – They’ve got a good set of locks again. Very good job signing Kruger & Steenkamp.
    – Reckon if Francois Hougaard plays as well as many thinks he will – if he continues playing with that sort of energy but becomes more precise – he’ll rival Genia.
    – Wynand Olivier isn’t half as bad as people make out, and will be much better with Sadie outside him. Will also make for a nice rotation with Francois Venter also there.
    – JJ Engelbrecht the perfect guy for that Bulls 11 jersey.

    I do hope they sort out that loose-forward trio though. Tough when your back-ups are the better players (drop Stegmann & Dewald Potgieter). Also hopefully find another option at fullback. I’m no fan of Kirchner, but also not so sure Beyers is the right guy.

    Bulls are going the right direction if Heyneke is to be believed. If they play a more balanced game they’ll be at the top again before long.

    Oh, and maybe they can do something with Lionel Cronje. The guy messed up every second time he touched the ball in a Stormers jersey, but having a flyhalf that can break the line looks like ‘the future’.

  • @Bloubloubul (Comment 52) : I don’t think Wynand is a test standard player but he’s had plenty of stand out performances for the Bulls that have mattered, especially at SR level.

    I just have to think back at our home SR game against them as a reminder of how destructive Olivier can be.

    I always consider him to be a threat that the Sharks have to take very seriously. His partnership with Francois Venter seemed to be taking good shape at the back end of the season.

    I can’t understand why Bulls fans wud want to see him go just yet 🙂

    Sjoe! You seem determined to clear out the last of the old guard.

    Is there any particular centre/s in Pretoria that you had in mind to replace Olivier?

They made a very successful midfield pairing despite their lack of experience, so who knows, maybe a wet behind the ears Venter-Sadie partnership will thrive if given the chance. 🙂

  • Hold on a min its been my experience thats its alot of your supporters coining the “they deserve it” phrase ..

    If we lose too the Lions it won’t be so bad cause they deserve it ..sound famliar ..

    Naturally the team that wins deserves it and imo both these sides played well enough to play in the final ..

    This site is perpetuating this thought all on their own …

    And lets face it the reason more than normal neutral supporters are rallying behind the Lions is for one simple reason..

    Everyone loves an underdog 😀

    I can’t agree with people wanting to get rid of Wynand Olivier.

    He may not be suited to test rugby, but he’s very effective for the Bulls. One of the better 12’s around.

    It’s not time for new blood, unless the new blood is better then him. At this stage, he’s still the best option for the Bulls at 12.

  • @hendrikp (Comment 89) : I agree. That was pretty much my feeling conveyed in comment 71. I can’t understand why Bulls fans wud turn on Olivier so suddenly. I think he still has a lot to offer.

    I know it’s his destiny to play 12 but I’m still bummed that Frans Venter can’t continue at 13*. The timing of his impacting runs and the lines that he picks, is Jaque Fourie like. He possesses the kind of package specifically designed result in clean breaks of the line in close contact situations. At 12 Venter has looked 1D and his decision making has left a bit to be desired. I wud definitely look to Olivier as my first choice 12 at the Bulls in 2012.

    *It’s no disrespect to Sadie, a player I like.

So many times the Bulls had a beautiful backline movement going and if he passed a score was a certainty, but then he holds on, the opp tackles him and more than anything get turnover ball..

  • @Ice Ice Bokkie (Comment 104) :
    Ice, I don’t know if you still remember that season when the Bulls began their domination of SA rugby. I think it was the season in which 19 year Derick Hougaard made a name for himself. Along the way they beat the Sharks, which enhanced our then label as chokers.
    Anyway long story short, the Bulls centre partners were Tiaan Joubert and Dries Scholtz. I use to joke that Dries was the most inappropriately named player in SA rugby coz he wud never score a try – that was until he scored a crucial try against us. Anyway I’m sidetracking again. Back to my point: I could swear they must have set a Currie Cup record for fewest passes ever made by 1st choice centres of a CC winning team. It was ridiculous. At about midway thru the season I started counting and about 5 games these guys made a combined total of less than 10 passes. :mrgreen:

    Part and parcel of Bulls rugby is a 12 that hangs onto the ball. Wynand has bashed his way over many and advantage line and breached many top notch defences in his time by using that same seemingly brain-dead blinkers on tactic

    Remember a while back when everyone was against the Bulls because of their arrogant supporters? Same now with you guys 😉

    You can always be counted upon to post something if Vermeulen is mentioned or the Sharks can be sniped at.

    Arrogant? I’m actually pleasantly surprised at how few Sharks fans are braying about how we are going to whip the Lions (which is often a naïve call heard in the past). This entire article was in fact inspired by a lack of fire in the belly of the average Sharks fan. Ask the Lions fans here how arrogant we have been.

    Perhaps a bit of transference transpiring there mooly.

    As for Vermeulen, yup, I do do that, no denying.

    There are a few comments about the sharks taking it by 20, and all the comments in the past about it being a watered down comp? Does that even matter now that you’re in the finals? You guys still need to travel afterall 😉

  • @Pokkel (Comment 172) : Alistair Coetzee and John Plumtree are in a car when a truck smashes into it, killing them on the spot.

    At the pearly gates, St. Peter shows Alistair to his house, a modest, three-bedroom affair decked out in blue and white stripes. Next door, towering over the house is a veritable mansion of a house bedecked in black and white bunting, banners, flags and all manner of Sharks paraphernalia.

    Alistair, highly outraged, demands to know why John Plumtree is awarded such a magnificent abode when he is given such a humble house. To which St. Peter replies: “Oh, that’s not John’s house, it’s God’s!”

    Most Shark fans on here that I know are stand up supporters and very rarely are arrogant.

  • @molly (Comment 169) :
    I stand by my call: the blog archives are here for anyone to peruse.

    I have said all season that the CC was watered-down and that I cared more about player development. That is still the case. Seeing the likes of Joubert and Oupa in midfield still concerns me, and my comments bear that out.

    I will celebrate IF the Sharks win the CC, and cherish it because we made the semis without our Boks, and beat the Cheetahs and Lions in the knock-outs, even though they had few disruptions all season.

    But that doesn’t change the fact that the fact that the Bulls were hamstrung all season. Of course, WP lost last week despite having all their Boks back…

    And imo alot of the Unions achieved some degree of player development ..Think Province were the big winners here ..their depth was truely tested and made a semi. As is the case with the Sharks barring the whole centre issues.

    Even the Bulls unearthed a few players for the future.

  • @Big Fish (Comment 180) : I’m with you on this one; I said midway through the season that we could still go on to win the CC, but while I would celebrate such an achievement, I would still view the season as a whole as a failure if we did not address our shortcomings with a view to the Super 15. Earlier this week I committed to withholding criticism until after the final, so for now, this dude abides…

    I guess the titles over the last few years give you guys some real weight.

    And personally, I don’t see the Bulls falling down cos of the loss of the Golden Generation of players.

    You will not be as good, but you will still be a force to be reckoned with – the Bulls are now used to winning the key games.
