  • What a set-piece move by the Canes…from a scrum on their own 22 they let the ball do the work and get to within 5m…after 2 more phases Franks is in…it’s a weekend for frontrankers to score!

  • Now the Canes have the wind at their backs…loose start to the second half…Chiefs attack…and loose play means they lose the ball…ooh…and Barrett is almost away…and his flick pass just doesn’t find his mate. No stop in play in the half so far…until a Canes penalty 2:30 in…

  • Pastor, I see a new vocation looming for you. Thanks for the updates.

    This has been a huge weekend for the Sharks, big swing in our favour. Now we need to put the foot on the throat for the rest of our games.

  • @JD (Comment 58) : Technically still not quite…the Tahs have a game in hand…so if we win everything AND they win everything AND they score 2 bonus points more than us in 3 games then they end up on top. So he Chiefs can do us a big favour next weekend…

  • @pastorshark (Comment 59) : no it’s still in Sharks hands as the Tahs can only get level on points with their extra game, but Sharks will still be ahead as we won 10 games to their current 8, this means if Sharks win all their games with bonus points Sharks will finish top thus it is totally in the Sharks hands to finish top.

  • @JD (Comment 60) : Sorry. Yes…agreed…it is in our hands…but I was going from the default position that we don’t score a bonus point in every game. 🙂 We need to score bonus points to make sure…or hope that the Chiefs beat the Tahs… Just making the point that three wins alone is not necessarily enough…

  • @pastorshark (Comment 61) : yes it’s unlikely that the Sharks will win all three games with bonus points so it would be nice if some of the other top teams lose. It’s greqt for me as a supporter to know tbe Sharks could finish to without having to hope for other teams to lose or do us favours. It’s great to be a Sharks supporter! !!!!! GO SHARKS!!!!!!
