Super Rugby 2012 – Sharks (32) vs Lions (20) F/T

The Sharks play host to the Lions in Durban, in desperate need of their first win of the season, with the Lions themselves coming off an unexpected loss to the Hurricanes at home, requiring a win to stay in touch with the leaders in the South African conference.

The Sharks welcome back both Odwa Ndungane on the wing as well Willem Alberts who will add some much needed weight and go forward to the loose trio. Wiehahn Herbst is again preferred to Jannie du Plessis, with the big doctor still horribly off form.

The Lions were struck with late blows to their starting line up, with both Elton Jantjies and Pat Cilliers ruled out of the game late in the week, with Butch James shifting to take over the flyhalf role, with Alwyn Hollenbach coming into the starting fifteen. Caylib Oosthuizen replaces Pat Cilliers in the front row.

This match will be a good one, a close encounter if the weekend games are anything to go by, but the Lions will be reeling from the late changes after those injuries, and the disruptions playing into the hands of the Sharks.

Sharks: 15. Riaan Viljoen, 14. Odwa Ndungane, 13. JP Pietersen, 12. Tim Whitehead, 11. Lwazi Mvovo, 10. Patrick Lambie, 9. Frederic Michalak, 8. Keegan Daniel (Captain), 7. Willem Alberts, 6. Marcell Coetzee, 5. Ross Skeate, 4. Steven Sykes, 3. Wiehahn Herbst, 2. Bismarck du Plessis, 1. Dale Chadwick

Replacements: 16. Craig Burden, 17. Jannie du Plessis, 18. Anton Bresler, 19. Jacques Botes, 20. Charl McLeod, 21. Meyer Bosman, 22. Paul Jordaan

Lions: 15. Jaco Taute, 14. Deon van Rensburg, 13. Doppies la Grange, 12. Alwyn Hollenbach, 11. Michael Killian, 10. Butch James, 9. Michael Bondesio, 8. Warren Whiteley, 7. Joshua Strauss (Captain), 6. Derick Minnie, 5. Franco van der Merwe, 4. Marius Coetzer, 3. Jacobie Adriaanse, 2. Callie Visagie, 1. Caylib Oosthuizen

Replacements: 16. Martin Bezuidenhout, 17. Ruan Dreyer, 18. Stephan Greeff, 19. Cobus Grobbelaar, 20. Tian Meyer, 21. Andries Coetzee, 22. James Kamana

  • No excuses today Sharks. A win as a minimum to keep me interested but I think a 5 pointer should be the goal.

  • Lawrence is very inconsistent in his ruck officiating, and also very pedantic.

    Alberts looking very rusty so far. As for Fred, he needs to make the mental adjustment from 10 to 9 – he is trying to do too much on his own, rather creating opportunities for those outside him.

  • I would love to call this Sharks side limited, but I´m not sure they deserve such an accolade. I wish I hadn´t watched this morning´s other games; where teams actually had a clue.

    Our Super Rugby future is a Plum Duff.

  • Looking at Bismark’s throw-ins today, would those who protested so much on the Bismark thread the other day care to reconsider their position?

    JP is hurting the Lions on defence in a big way, and threatening on attack each time.

    Sharks got punished for being casual – with a troop of subs arriving a few minutes ago, we should have played safety first.

    Even watching the 2011 loss against the Saders at Twickenham felt less hollow.

  • Bismarck did well this evening, he initiated the Mvovo try and stole the ball well, giving away penalties comes with the territory when you try and steal the ball as often as he does. He still needs to cut down on those and work on his LOs.

  • The Lions played better than I expected, the scrums were good Caylib has a bright future, Tian Meyer also better than Bondisio, he must start against the Stormers, but Butch didn’t have the impact I hoped for and Strauss not up to his best. Well done Sharks you played well and took your chances

  • The Lions biggest mistake is pushing a free running game of the CC in a much tighter Super rugby competition…
    They have conceded 5 tries where they were on the attack…and and the last 2 games that was more than the diff in points…
    Their def is good enough…and they let the other teams in with unforced errors from which the other teams score…

  • I’m very happy. Lions had some injuries – but we are still missing 3 Boks, just got Odwa and Alberts back today, and have a new front row, centre partnership and fullback.

    Celebrate your successes lads!

    Bismark, Sykes and Coetzee were the picks of the forwards, and I struggle to single out backs, except that JP was world-class, and Pat answered his critics. With Whitehead between them, I see exciting times ahead.

  • I didn’t see the second half as I had to go read the pink hand grenade her bedtime stories. Four things that stood out in the first half:
    1) Tim Whitehead was a REALLY good purchase. He distributes excellently, looks to be a strong and elusive runner, and he has vision. I like him!!
    2) When it come to learning to not go off your feet at the breakdown, the Sharks team has a collective IQ of about 7
    3) Composed showing by Lambie; managed the hand very well and appears to be heading back to his best
    4) JPP is really taking to the outside centre really well. So who was it that said he couldn’t defend!?

    Definitely. Its not just the players adpating to new faces, its the whole team adapting to a new game-plan.

    Didn’t it warm your heart to NOT see Alberts or Bismark stand at flyhalf for 50% of the game? Wasn’t it nice to see tries that weren’t just from broken play?

    The only real problem I saw was ruck tecnique. In every other way, we stepped up.
