Welcome to Growthpoint Kings Park, where Super Rugby is finally back!

Gary Gold is large and in charge in the hot seat this season and fans are eager to see how the team in black are going to progress under his tutelage in 2015.

Naka Drotske’s Cheetahs have been written off in many sections of the media already, but thrive on the underdog status and like nothing better than knocking over the more fancied side from Durban.

Kick-off is at 5:05pm and Aussie Andrew Lees is the man with the whistle.

Sharks: 15 SP Marais, 14 Sibusiso Sithole, 13 Waylon Murray, 12 Heimar Williams, 11 Lwazi Mvovo, 10 Patrick Lambie, 9 Cobus Reinach, 8 Lubabalo Mtembu, 7 Renaldo Bothma, 6 Marcell Coetzee, 5 Pieter-Steph du Toit, 4 Mouritz Botha, 3 Jannie du Plessis, 2 Bismarck du Plessis (captain), 1 Tendai Mtawarira.
Replacements: 16 Kyle Cooper, 17 Dale Chadwick, 18 Matt Stevens, 19 Marco Wentzel, 20 Jean Deysel, 21 Conrad Hoffmann, 22 Fred Zeilinga, 23 Odwa Ndungane.

Cheetahs: 15 Willie le Roux, 14 Clayton Blommetjies, 13 Francois Venter, 12 Michael van der Spuy, 11 Raymond Rhule, 10 Joe Pietersen, 9 Sarel Pretorius, 8 Willie Britz, 7 Teboho Mohoje, 6 Jean Cook, 5 Francois Uys (captain), 4 Lodewyk de Jager, 3 Coenie Oosthuizen, 2 Torsten van Jaarsveld, 1 Danie Minnie.
Replacements: 16 Stephan Coetzee, 17 BG Uys, 18 Nicolaas van Dyk, 19 Carl Wegner, 20 Johannes Prinsloo, 21 Tian Meyer, 22 Willie du Plessis, 23 Cornal Hendricks.

  • Good luck boys. Let’s up the intensity, focus on protecting our ball at every ruck and being unpredictable. Have fun boys, we are 100% behind you.

  • Same old crap at crucial times. Why do the Sharks not go wide near the line? Inevitably one of the forwards bashes it up and loses the ball. Dumbass rugby and why tries are so scarce.

  • Here is the problem, very simple, Coaching staff not there for the whole pre season training, players only just joining, some have still not joined, no cohesion at all, players mentally not prepared, etc etc etc, only ourselves to blame.

  • @vanmartin (Comment 78) : In the end the Freudian slip proved to be correct.

    Cheetahs played really well – Pietersen was actually very good at 10. Cheetahs forwards bossed us at the collisions and the set pieces. Cheetahs showed us that the excuse of difficult handling in the humidity is nonsense. Sharks have plenty of work to do on skills, but that I expected.

  • Well played Cheetahs!

    Early days just yet – sure nobody is writing the Crusaders off based on their match?

    That said – piss poor game. Very little shape from the inside backs and atrocious handling skills in general. Sharks been whining about Durban humidity for years – one would think that they would have learnt to adapt by now. But you won’t if you always make excuses like that.

    Time to talk less and walk tall instead.

  • @Morné (Comment 124) :
    That’s the issue. You have to have a 9 or 12 (preferably both) to take some of that on. There was no direction from either, and Reinach especially was poor. I feel that though Esterhuizen is raw and makes errors, he at least offers a gain line advantage at 12 and should start.

    Problem is, Williams happens to be our only back running decent lines. Sithole looks confused at wing when he should instead be learning the finer points of 13 – as opposed to just looking for contact. Selection errors in the backs.

  • I left Kings Park tonight with such a crap disapointed feeling,unfortunately I allowed myself to buy into all the Brendan Venter,Gary Gold hype,new expansive game plan,running rugby hype.
    Bullshit,there was absolutely no new game plan,just a lot of really inadequate players.
    We dropped 4 match winnng passes the Cheetahs didn ‘t drop one.Don’t blame the humidity,blame the playing skills.
    I will not watch another game that S.P starts in,he cannot take a high ball and his defence is non existent,Heimar is such a light weight,what are we doing starting this non entity ahead of Esterhuizen.
    Deysel made a massive impact when he came on.
    On the brighter side we have Bismark Thomas du Toit,Frans and JPP to come back
    ether Venter and Gold have a way to utilise this talent remains to be seen.
    The Cheetahs actually played very well they took every chance that came their way.

After all, the other time Brendan Venter was involved we lost the first game to Griquas and won the cup!! 🙂

  • Early days. At least the Sharks starting to show more attacking intent plus a lot more offloading.

    Main issues for me:
    – still unable to finish off due to mistakes
    – scrum
    – unable to exit our 22 after kickoffs
    – all the missed tackles in broken play

    I just hope the Cheetahs can show the same level of commitment when playing the Australasian teams.

  • The Sharks were chasing the game all the time, trying to catch up with the Cheetahs score, that’s one big problem. That happens when you concede 4 tries. The butterflies were right. What is sad is the Cheetahs were up for the contest and Sharks not really switched on and motivated until 65 minutes in. Highly disappointed

  • I’m not too disappointed about this. I’m more happy that we tried to throw the ball around a bit atleast. You could see that there was an intention to try run the ball more, the sharks are looking at being a lot more balanced than last year. If Marcel had not dropped that ball over the line and lambie converted we would have won. I bet you the crusaders fans aren’t freaking about losing 1 game.

  • My thoughts on the game …
    (1) we were undercooked
    (2) bismarks late withdrawl followed by beasts early exit was a disaster
    (3)hookers shouldnt make clearance kicks
    (4) our scrum needs work but it was harshly penalised … a game turner
    (5) we were unlucky
    (6) the referees still dont know what a scrum is
    (7) our lock combo has potential
    (8) we didnt use the driving maul … why?
    (10) we tried to run the ball … in the wrong parts on the field
    (11) our kick and CHASE needs work

    Brumbies the Only Home team to win this weekend 😯

  • @RuckingFun (Comment 177) : That is true. The Sharks did play a better brand of rugby. Don’t want to dampen your enthusiasm, but the Sharks would still probably have lost. The first try was very fortuitous, as the ref clearly obstructed Cook and Britz, and prevented a possible tackle on Mthembu. So I give you Deysel’s try, and take Lambie’s away? 🙂

    Cheetahs just wanted this one more, and were more measured in their game management than last year. Didn’t just run shelter skelter, and with better defence.

  • @pastorshark (Comment 158) : Well what I was trying to say in my frustration is that after a year and a half the sharks in general still seems to be very unsettled in all aspects and that it may take john smith much longer than we thought to get the hang of this job.Its not just about making cool moves but getting things to tick in the long run.I wont be surprised if we loose a few more games and find ourselves in the middle of the log, midway trough the comp.The only ray of light atm is the other big teams loosing as well!!!

  • Can’t read much into the first game of the season in terms of form and performance. But the skill level in terms of basics was quite poor across the park. Some players have highlighted why they should not be anywhere near the field. Matt Stevens has offered the Sharks nothing. Sbura is wasted out wide, Deysel is too good to be on the bench, Waylon is not the answer in the midfield. Need Frans, JPP, Alberts and Bismarck. Hoping Beast is not seriously injured.

  • With the handling errors, we cost ourselves this game. The Cheetahs handled the ball better than us, and that is not right, we coughed up the pill far too often. I’ll write this off and expect better. Criminal to lose home games, as you start on the back foot immeditely. Come on now Boys!

  • @sharks_lover (Comment 190) : Gold has confirmed that Beast has a serious injury, so Thomas will need to step up again. The big names will need to make a big difference upon their return. I don’t like the look of our midfield – Steyn and Sithole with JPP out wide. @tigershark (Comment 191) : Esterhuizen could make a difference in the midfield until Steyn returns, but unfortunately his versatility (or lack thereof) might see him lose his place on the bench.

  • @Richard (Comment 194) : I hear what your saying about his versatility, but each time he’s on the field he makes a difference.Beast out of action is a huge setback.Chadwick looks more like a lean hooker.

  • @tigershark (Comment 195) : I can’t argue there, he does make a difference, but he is not the same league as Steyn and I would not put Steyn at the back, I would possibly look at JPP there, meaning Sbura and Esterhuizen could swap between 13/14 – I believe that you could interchange 12/13/14 depending on set play and running lines etc, but that is pointless if you don’t get quick ball, or dominance up front. There was no momentum to speak of yesterday – without momentum The Sharks don’t feature on game day. Going to be an interesting season.

  • @pastorshark (Comment 210) : Thomas is a few weeks away, going to miss our big forwards – worried, very worried about Tighthead. Matt Stevens and Lourens Adriaanse have been absolutely disappointing signings. All the Young Sharks who have left us have done well, Julian, Danie, Wiehan have been fantastic for their new Unions at prop.

    That try was no more (or no less) fortuitous than any other.

    Using the referee as a blocker is a perfectly legitimate tactic in rugby.

  • @JD (Comment 220) : Thanks JD, think it was more a case of the Sharks adapting to a new style…they certainly attempted to play it wider a lot more. Cheetahs were more solid in the scrums than I expected, and maybe caught the Sharks pack unguarded.
    The Sharks will bounce back, and be in the mix at the end, we will hopefully not fade!

    Given how close the Sharks came to scoring a try in the dying minutes, I’d say the Cheetahs were very lucky to have won, but if the Sharks did win, I’d be saying that they were lucky.

    Either way, luck plays a part in every rugby match. We must live with it.

  • @Morné (Comment 117) : was thinking that, game management and game managers. There needs to be leadership in the pack, as well as the backs, Lambie responsible for backline play, Bismarck responsible for forward play along with Deysel. Together responsible for nett result. The forwards are responsible for the quality of the possession and backs are responsible for execution of the possession. Operations + Execution = Gross Result (final whistle) = Nett Result.
