Super Rugby 2012 Final – Chiefs (37) vs Sharks (6) F/T

The final of the most prestigious competition in provincial rugby is upon us, as the Chiefs host the Sharks in the last match of 2012 Super Rugby, and by the end of the next 80 minutes, we will have a new winner of the ultimate trophy.

The Chiefs were in a final against the Bulls not so long ago, but had no chance in Pretoria against a team that was unbeatable, and with them getting a second bite at that apple, I expect them to throw everything at the Sharks, especially being at home. They have been playing at home (in New Zealand) since May, with very little travel since. The Chiefs have been able to select an almost full strength team, bar the absence of Richard Kahui in midfield.

The Sharks have been playing away for the last two weekends, starting outsiders in every match, and now go into the Final well travelled, slighty tired after a long couple of days on the road again, but ready to win their first Final, after failing at this hurdle in three previous occasions. The Sharks have had to shuffle their backline for this match, bringing back both Pat Lambie and Paul Jordaan, while losing Tim Whitehead to a broken hand. The forwards are unchanged though, and this is where the Sharks’ greatest strength lies.

It will be a humdinger of a match, with a home side full of confidence after putting away probably the best ever Super Rugby franchise, the Crusaders, last weekend, while the Sharks are on a mission impossible storyline, which they would love to complete. Both teams deserve to lift the Cup, but only one can. Hold onto your seats, this is set to be huge!

Chiefs: 1. Sona Taumalolo, 2. Mahonri Schwalger, 3. Ben Tameifuna, 4. Craig Clarke (c), 5. Brodie Retallick, 6. Liam Messam, 7. Tanerau Latimer, 8. Kane Thompson, 9. Tawera Kerr-Barlow, 10. Aaron Cruden, 11. Asaeli Tikoirotuma, 12. Sonny Bill Williams, 13. Andrew Horrell, 14. Tim Nanai-Williams, 15. Robbie Robinson.

Replacements: 16. Hika Elliot, 17. Ben Afeaki, 18. Michael Fitzgerald, 19. Sam Cane, 20. Brendon Leonard, 21. Jackson Willison, 22. Lelia Masaga.

Sharks 1. Tendai Mtawarira , 2. Bismarck du Plessis , 3. Jannie du Plessis , 4. Willem Alberts , 5. Anton Bresler , 6. Keegan Daniel ( C ) , 7. Marcell Coetzee , 8. Ryan Kankowski , 9. Charl McLeod , 10. Frederic Michalak , 11. Lwazi Mvovo , 12. Paul Jordaan , 13. JP Pietersen , 14. Louis Ludik , 15. Patrick Lambie

  • I hope the Sharks pull through. I want to get excited but I then think of the magnitude of the task. Read a heart warming article in the NZ Press re Plum’s love for the Sharks. I really wanted to congratulate him for his part in getting the Sharks thusfar

  • @klempie (Comment 30) : IΒ΄m not sure if the rain is a good thing for us. I reckon the Chiefs loosies are more suited to tight, wet weather games. I would have liked a nice dry surface for Keegan, Kanko and Marcell to play some ball.

  • Huge mistake starting Lambie at fullback. I know heΒ΄s the Wunderkind and all, but Ludik is the form fullback in SA. Hopefully Plum has the balls to sub him at half time or, what I would do, move him to 12, move Jordaan to 13 and JP to wing with Ludik to fullback.

    And Frenchie needs to come to the party. Cruden is everywhere, our Froggie nowhere.

  • @Big Fish (Comment 212) : I won’t tear into them. But I’ll tear into the coaching staff.

    Plumtree needs to go for all the bad choices he made at the first half of the season. The fact of the matter is that we should never have been put in this position in the first place. For the last 4 seasons, the same pattern has occurred. Play a territorial game by winning the ball with the forwards and kicking the ball away….and it NEVER works. Inevitably we end up in a position where we have no choice but to change the gameplan, keep the ball and throw it around and we start drilling teams. I’m absolutely goddamn SICK it. Plum must go.

    See you in the Currie Cup.

    Really painful to watch our team yet again fall short at the most important hurdle – the hurdle that mattered, the one that again got away.

    Wish the Sharks gave a better account of themselves, but alas our team is human after all. πŸ˜₯

  • Even given the influence of the travel this was a pi$$poor performance from the players and coaching staff. How can we even think to beat the Chiefs playing Bull’s rugby in the final – just kicking the ball straight to the Chiefs – hoping for mistakes?

    I was not expecting to win this – but was expecting a better performance from the boys.

  • @Ben (Comment 264) : I’m a Sharks supporter, dude. As long as we’re winning, I don’t care. HOWEVER, those results in the playoffs don’t negate the results in the first half of the season. You can’t look at performances in isolation like that. That’s not being honest with yourself.

    Which is what we were playing in the first half of the season and got us into the position we did. Only when we started playing SHARKS rugby did the results start coming. You agree with Bokhoring, but not with me?
