Prinsloo extends Sharks stay

The Sharks have managed to hold onto at least one of their most promising young players for 2012 and beyond.

Gouws Prinsloo (c) Nicole Niewoudt 2010 Sharksworld has learned that Gouws Prinsloo (pictured), who played regularly at fullback for the Sharks under 21 side and emerged as that competition’s leading points scorer, has put pen to paper and will play for the Sharks for at least the next two seasons. Prinsloo made his senior debut for the Sharks earlier this season, when he was elevated to the Currie Cup side to start at fullback against the Leopards.

With Riaan Viljoen arriving in Durban next season to compete with Louis Ludik for the number 15 jersey, Prinsloo will have stiff opposition to overcome if he wants to play Super Rugby for the Sharks. It’s a positive step, though, that the youngster is being kept in the system and hopefully he will learn a great deal from the seniors ahead of him and go on to play many games for the Sharks in the future.

A big thank you to the incredibly-talented Nicole Niewoudt for the picture.

  • He wouldnt have signed if the coaching staff didnt indicate that he was in the picture. I wonder how many other u21s that arent u21 next year will be offered contracts…

  • @Franshark: Isn’t viljoen too slightly built for 12?that’s presuming you mean 12viljoen 13 ludik?
    You actually have me wondering why a jlp/ludik combo wasn’t tried?
    But we couldve seen 25 diff centre combinations this season,but I think the problem might be traced back to what happens on the training pitch.

  • @bergshark (Comment 14) : Viljoen is definitely not too small. I think he could be made into a similar player to Butch James if given time at 10, but not sure that would happen. I like him at 15 too though, not sure about at center.

  • @Ludz (Comment 12) : I think for those like me who’d followed Tera since his schooldays, this was definitely a different Tera in u21 for 2011.

    Gone is the Kanko-type loose player who’d make awesome runs, showing off his speed and in his place is a much bulkier player who plays an extremely tight game.

    I actually expected Tera to be one of the flashy stars of u21 rugby this season. It definitely didn’t turn out that way. I miss the tryline hungry open play man. I’m not sure if I like what he’s turned into. But maybe he’ll go further as a tighter heavier player. Younger players like Coetzee and Kleinhans have leapfrogged him so maybe that says something as well. I also think he needs to up his defence around the fringes.

    That said Tera is very talented player and he has pace – that’s why he was in the 7s. I’m hoping he comes out guns blazing in the Vodacom Cup next season and earns himself a long term spot with the Sharks. 🙂

  • Ludik or Viljoen would be good outside centres. JLP and Bosmann to cover 12 and Marius Joubert to be the teams boot cleaner/towel boy. Gouws at 15, JPP and Mvovo at wing with SuperPat calling the shots at 10 with (hopefully) the Charl Mcleod of 2010 at the base of the scrum.

  • @SheldonK (Comment 15) : I wanted to say this to you last week.

    I may not have Viljoen in mind as a first choice 10 but I really enjoyed the work he did for the Griquas in this role. His decision making was good and his passing game was outstanding. In that game at Kingspark, him and Rosslee combined like Pisi and Sopolu did against the Boks – good energy and a high level of clever pinpoint passing to put the centre into space to attack.

  • @vanmartin (Comment 16) : I think he did play 12 for the Cheetahs a couple times in Super rugby. Id prefer Bosman at 12 though…I have a feeling he will come good as he is a good player. i dont think 12 is the problem but more at 13! Not sure who to play there…Joubert too slow now!

  • @beet (Comment 27) : I must admit i always thought Viljoen was a decent player but the times he played 10 for Griquas made me take notice. I just like the qualities he brought to the position. He took the ball to the line and his distribution is good so can put players in space and also has the physicality to take it up himself and if he gets through he has the pace to finish. I just cant see him getting much time at 10 for the Sharks unfortunately. But im adamant he could be the new Butch James…just quicker!

  • Plum is a very good forward orientated coach, and needs a free thinking backline coach to complement him. I would also have gotten Dr Sherryl Calder involved in the team environment. I think she has worked with Ludik before. Also a dedicated defense coach is also needed.

Only after that did he get treatment and he still tried to walk it off.

  • @SheldonK: yes, plum could do with better asst coaches.but does he or the sharks management think the problem is the asst coaches or the players?
    Let’s get a skills coach in and a backline coach .my big worry with hre’s appointment as backline coach was when I read in a newspaper article how he mentioned that he had to be brought up to speed since things have moved on coaching wise since he last coached at this (superrugby)level.shouldn’t he have rather been brought into junior ranks first and re-introduced to coaching at this level again?

    If Whitehead can be half as good as Horan was in his prime, I’ll be pleased.

    Also Whitehead’s the wrong build to become a Horan. A guy like Paul Jordaan stands a far better chance.

Yes he may not have been the best in the world in his position every year but he is a damn good professional player always doing the basics well! He was hardly ever injured and able to maintain consistent performances. HE would be a fantastic addition to the junior coaching staff. With Prinsloo i was just wondering where else he could play as there is big competiton for 15 jersey.

  • @SheldonK (Comment 68) : Gouws is possibly too small to play centre. We are well stocked up on the possies that he wud do better in (flyhalf and wing).

    Honestly I wud consider him a better option than Ludik. Ludik is a super defender but as hard as he tries he offers very little with ball in hand. I can’t even imagine Ludik outperforming Joubert as a centre. Gouws is a far better attacking player. He needs more testing under the high ball otherwise his positional play, his kicking out of hand and his weighing up of kick-run-pass options from the back are all very good.

    Quite a few of our under 21s look small,esp the backs.maybe I’m wrong.
    but surely you want to condition players to play at highest level and that means they will come up against these 100kg plus opp backs.

  • @SheldonK: waylon murray and brad barritt,although not even 20 when they debuted for the sharks were not small( barritt 1.86m and 95kg and waylon 1.90m and 100kg plus).

  • @bergshark (Comment 79) :

    Most centres now will have a tough time unless they’re around that 1.86+ mark, and have a strong build.

    There are exceptions of course.

  • @bergshark (Comment 72) : A lot of those SARugby stats are outdated. Sometimes they take stats from when the guys were still in school or played u19. Gouws is not a big guy but I’ll be shocked if he doesn’t weigh at least 90kg.

  • @bergshark (Comment 76) : When I can think of something original to say about the Sharks, and which can’t be expressed in 30 words or less, I’ll put together an article. Right now, all I’ll be able write about is why I Put A Spell On You by Screamin’ Jay Hawkins is the second greatest song ever.

  • @bergshark (Comment 78) : Gouws isnt a short guy so thats why im suprised he is 79kg…i think i weighed that in grade 8! I mean Lambie is basically a midget but weighs more. hehe And yeh u right in terms of having to conditon players to play against men not boys!

  • @Culling Song (Comment 73) : The Beyonce thing was me trying to use a decoy runner and milk a penalty for you taking out a player without the ball but instead you read the play, appealed to the ref and got your penalty for obstruction. :mrgreen:
    After I’d posted it I realised the ambiguity of burn – meant it as in throw on the fire not copy. :mrgreen:
    I’ve met 4 qualified conditioning coaches from my SBR adventures and was considering getting them onto your case if and when I bump into them. However my fear is that they’ll start reading your material, liking you and next thing the cool thing in the conditioning coaching industry will become to play down qualifications and pretend to be winging it. :mrgreen:

  • You either an expert on your subject through education or in service training. If a traffic cop does accident reconstruction for 15 years, he is regarded as an expert in his field even if he only has Std 8. I reckon Stef could be used as a conditioning coach at the U19’s and maybe follow through with a formal qualification that he would pass cum laude.

  • @Ben (Comment 101) : I have seen him in person, he comes up to just past my hip! Spies and Deysel are listed as just over 100kg so thats why a bit sceptical…but hey if he is then he is! Doesnt matter how much a guy weighs if he can catch,pass and tackle.
