Super Rugby 2012 – Lions (38) vs Sharks (28) F/T

The Lions and Sharks kick off the afternoon rugby viewing by taking each other on in Johannesburg in the first of two South African derbies.

The Lions are back from their unsuccessful four week tour in which they lost four from four, but showed glimpses of brilliance in between moments of ridicule. Two Lions teams can show up this afternoon, the one being a team hungry for victory and playing well, or a team tired after a long season, rolling over for the Sharks to take an easy victory.

The Sharks are on a roll and must be one of the form teams of the competition at the moment, and can take a win into the break in Super Rugby, knowing that a play-off spot is all but secured. The men from Durban will be pushing for the all important four try bonus, which could see them closing in on the two top South African teams, as they tackle each other later today, with there being a loser between the two.

Lions: 15 Andries Coetzee, 14 Deon van Rensburg, 13 Lionel Mapoe, 12 Butch James, 11 Anthonie Volminck, 10 Elton Jantjies, 9 Tian Meyer, 8 Joshua Strauss (captain), 7 Grant Hattingh, 6 Derick Minnie, 5 Franco van der Merwe, 4 Hendrik Roodt, 3 Patric Cilliers, 2 Callie Visagie, 1 CJ van der Linde

Replacements: 16 Martin Bezuidenhout, 17 JC Janse van Rensburg, 18 Etienne Oosthuizen, 19 Cobus Grobbelaar, 20 Ross Cronje, 21 Waylon Murray, 22 Ruan Combrinck

Sharks: 1. Tendai Mtawarira , 2. Bismarck du Plessis , 3. Jannie du Plessis , 4. Steven Sykes , 5. Anton Bresler , 6. Marcell Coetzee , 7. Willem Alberts , 8. Keegan Daniel (Captain) , 9. Charl McLeod , 10. Frederic Michalak , 11. Lwazi Mvovo , 12. Meyer Bosman , 13. JP Pietersen , 14. Odwa Ndungane , 15. Patrick Lambie

Replacements: 16. Craig Burden , 17. Wiehahn Herbst , 18. Jandre Marais , 19. Ryan Kankowski , 20. Jacques Botes , 21. Marius Joubert , 22. Louis Ludik

Referee: Garratt Williamson
Assistant Ref 1:Jason Jatha
Assistant Ref 2:Stefan Breytenbach

  • I think the Sharks need to watch the breakdown and apply the same strategies they implemented against the Western Force and Cheetahs . They should not become complacent in this area as this where the Lions have dominated us before. I would have selected Botes and given Marcel a bit of a break. Luckily Meyer Bosman is on the field as he acts like a loose forward in the breakdown. Hope we get a good lead and the subs come on early and extend that lead.

  • @Big Fish (Comment 165) : I’d rather he oversteps and makes the right call than play dumb.
    The important thing is that the result should be 100% correct, the way of getting there should be of minimal significance IMO.

    It was not a try and that is what the TMO should be allowed to say. Just becasue he doesn’t have the intellect to word it properly doesn’t make it a bad dicision. A simple “A reason not to award the try is that it did not cross the line” would have been the correct answer. He just cocked up the wording.

  • Sharks had one eye on the game against England next week. Plus losing the WhiteHead Jordaan combo cost us. When they combined our team looked more balanced. Also the lions killed us with those chip kicks behind the defensive lines. It was always Mvovos weakness and Butch and the Lions took advantage of this. Also l may be wrong but Michalak didn’t look like he played such a bad game. Lambie was okay at full back but Ludik looked likable was sharper when he came on. Plus not starting Botes cost us in the breakdown.

  • Oh geez KSA, get of your high horse. YOU believe that the ball wasn’t grounded? Well, the AR conclusively said that it was. Hence the question.

    I didn’t see the ball grounded, but I didn’t see the ball lost, so the way that I see it, the AR’s call stands.

  • I’ve got no complaints about the loss – congratulated them above; but officiating has to be consistent. I’m not going to applaud a TMO for overstepping the call unless this kind of action (which I agree is bringing commonsense in) is consistently applied.

    So, was the right call made? Yes – the “try” didn’t look convincing. Was the TMO’s behaviour consistent with previous officiating? Hell no! And that’s my gripe.

I think it was grounded but clearly there is doubt. There is one set of laws for all teams and it’s not being applied consistently. That’s my gripe. Did you see the Try from the Bulls now? 🙄

    Exactly!

    And fate has a sense of humour!

    Spies scores a try that seems to be grounded on Carstens’ foot – Kaplan asks “any reason that I can’t award a try” and even though the TMO probably suspects its not grounded, he merely said he couldn’t give a reason not to award – try given.

    So, where is the consistency? 🙄
