Sharks pull out of Tri-Series


Written by Rob Otto (robdylan)

If overnight media reports are to be believed, the Sharks have withdrawn from the annual Neo Africa Tri-Series warm up tournament this year.

Details are in short supply as to why the Sharks have taken this decision, as well as regarding the alternative pre-Super Rugby program that will now need to be put in place. It is true that the Durban side has struggled to be competitive in previous incarnations of the Newlands tournament; if the talk is to be believed, it seems that the additional revenue to be gained from playing at home may be at the heart of this call.

The Cheetahs will, it seems, now compete with the Lions and the Stormers for the Tri-Series trophy.

Sharks CEO Brian van Zyl was quoted in Beeld last night confirming the withdrawal. With the Sharks set to host Boland on 10 February and playing a compulsory away game again against the Kings in PE a week later, participation in the Tri-Series would have meant that three out of the four warm-up matches would have taken place away from home. “There was concern here that our pre-season program would comprise predominantly away games, should we play against the Stormers and Lions in Cape Town,” said van Zyl. “We also feel that we’d be able to secure gate takings if we play another game at home.”

The Sharks are apparently lining up a fixture at Kings Park on 3 February, but the opponent has yet to be announced.

More on this when we get official confirmation from, well, anyone, really!

  • Why didn’t we just send our vodacom team down and organise alternative warm-ups for sr squad ?win-win for both squads (mr:green)
    Suppose neo-africa and weepee stormers wouldn’t have accepted that

  • Just checked: we play the stormers in our second sr game and the lions in our 3rd game (wonder if that didn’t have something to do with decision to pull out of the early season warm-up tournament in ct?).

  • Right now it just seems boring to have local SR teams square up in warm ups just weeks prior to the real deal where they will meet twice again.

    This is what the SA teams should try to organise.

    Come to an arrangement with the Pro 12 (Magners)whereby they put a freeze on their compo for 2 weeks at the start of February.

    We supply 6 teams (can incl EP Kings).

    They provide 10 teams (Leinster, Munster, Ulster, Connacht, Blues, Dragons, Scarlets, Ospreys, Edinburgh and Glasgow) to play in a knockout style compo.

    Rounds of 16 down to 8, 8 to 4 & 4 to 2 = 3 games max. Rule wud be no 2 teams from the same nation to play each other in round 1 (quarterfinals)

    Our SR teams are likely to win their 1st round games (quarterfinals) so they’d all get the desired 2 warm-up games as a minimum and a successful team wud have to play a 3rd and maybe a 4th match ie the final.

    They could even consider having a plate compo for the 8 teams knocked out in round 1.

    I think this type of knockout could draw a lot of attention and generate good revenue.

    The tournament could be alternated, one year SA next year home nations.

I think there’s not really much more to this story than we’ve reported… the Sharks want to get more bums on seats at Kings Park ahead of the Super Rugby season and a single low-key game against Boland isn’t going to accomplish that. I expect there might be a high-profile side lined up for 3 Feb

    The Sharks withdrew because the thing is a waste of time.

    Do you want them to tell us if they emailed or faxed the notification?

  • @beet (Comment 6) : Oh yay, even more rugby to look forward to then, and more excuses from “tired” players. πŸ™„

    There is already far too much rugby and for the first time before a Super tournament I’m not actually looking forward to it as much as I usually do. The thought of two fixtures against each of the other SA teams (losing out on one NZ and one Aus team in the process) almost puts me to sleep.

    The sooner they can this silly conference system the better.

  • @siorc (Comment 175) : The thing is all the teams realise how vital warm-up games are, so ur not going to get away from these. No side wants to go into an important compo cold. Now the bosses want to make money from warm up games. I’m just proposing a way to kill 2 birds with 1 stone.

    I also feel that if the conference system continues after 2012, sanzar should consider halving the points earned from local conference games eg 2 pts for a win instead of 4. In that way the unfair advantage a strong team in a weak conference has, is reduced.
