  • @Elma (Comment 1) : Piet Pienaar hasn’t written for us in a while. He has the unfortunate tendency to disappear into the Danville/Tuine “Fight Club” scene after the second bottle of Klippies. Takes a while to get him back when that happens

    That said Minnie was in good nick last year, apart from a few unneccessary penalties. Glad he isn’t in tomorows team against the Cheetahs.

    Seems Plum read my comment yesterday!

    I feel a lot better knowing we have a good replacement for Botes.
    Just wish he could start for us tomorrow already!

    @KingCheetah (Comment 39) : I just hope The Sharks remember to invoice the Lions for the winning culture we install in their players and the valuable match practise we`re willing to give their guys! :mrgreen:

  • I’m not convinced that Minnie is a good fit for the Sharks the way they are playing at the moment. The depend on Lambie slotting penalties and the don’t need someone who gives away penalties.

    I don’t know why Jaco Kriel didn’t work out but I prefer him to Minnie, even for the Lions but Minnie is the better fetcher of the two
