We’ve received word from the Sharks that the team to face the Lions in Johannesburg this weekend will be confirmed at 12 noon today.

The initial plan was to announce the team at 10 (the usual pattern this season) but for reasons unknown, the coaching staff need two additional hours this week.

We’ll let you have the team as soon as we get it.


  • Thanks 😉

  • Hi Rob, please clarify for me. Is Marcell with the Sharks or in Japan?

  • @Pokkel (Comment 3) : in Japan (or will be going directly there once fit).

    I’m not sure where he physically is today (I could try check FaceBook) but I do know for sure that he is not available to the Sharks for Currie Cup

  • @SheldonK (Comment 6) : Exactly…a happy coach makes for a happy group makes for winning rugby…oh wait – this ain’t Google. 😆

  • @robdylan (Comment 4) : I suppose his physical location will shed a lot of light on whether he should be in England with the Boks, or not.

  • @FireTheLooser (Comment 8) : Could be stalking the bok loosies, looking to shunt one down a flight of stairs maybe

  • @FireTheLooser (Comment 7) : Jokes aside it probably would be a bit unfair for Gold to announce the team to the public whilst his players are still out surfing or having breakfast. im sure the team will be announced as soon as the tab at wimpy is settled

  • @Dragnipur (Comment 9) : At the rate our boys keep dropping, he won’t need to do anything other than “be available” 😉

    @SheldonK (Comment 10) : 😈 😆 😈

  • Folks, let’s drop the unnecessary sarcasm please! This delay in announcement obviously provides the Sharks with some sort of tactical or mental advantage going into the game. 😈

  • @vanmartin (Comment 14) : Due to load shedding the last 20min of the Lion King video couldnt be viewed thats why

    I can just imagine the conversation:
    John: Why are you watching Lion King?? You should be practising for the Lions game!
    Gary: Video analysis boss!

  • @SheldonK (Comment 16) : @vanmartin (Comment 18) : Not sure our boys are emotionally mature enough to make it half-way into that movie 😥

    …maybe it will build some more character…there sure hasn’t been enough of that this season 😆

  • @vanmartin (Comment 18) : More likely…
    John: Ah man why are you guys watching Lion King without me?
    Gary: John you were off cycling we couldnt wait for you to start are technical session
    John: But why is Etienne sitting outside and not watching?
    Gary: He dropped the tape so we sent him outside
    John: I thought as much. Do you need me to give the guys an inspiring talk before the weekend?
    Gary: Shite are we playing this weekend as well? Ryan, Sean did you guys know that?
    Sean: No but Brendon said he would cover it for us…i think

  • The delay was probably to see where the Lions picked Ruan Dreyer 🙂

  • John: By the way, have Ettiene take an extra session with Cheryl.
    Gary: Chery? who is Cheryl.
    John: You know Cheryl Calder, the hand to eye coach we employ.
    Gary: Oh her, I havent seen her around here since I arrived in Durban….

  • Comment 28, posted at 17.09.15 12:49:16 by SheldonK Reply

  • @SheldonK (Comment 28) : thought she left after Jake…

  • Comment 29, posted at 17.09.15 12:56:24 by Kabouter Reply

  • @Kabouter (Comment 29) : I dont think she aligned with a particular team anymore but works for herself. I know guys that have done sessions with her and rave about the improvement in vision and thinking. Hand /Eye co-ordination training is big in Europe, but very little focus on it here in SA…its just an expected thing but not trained like other muscles in the gym

  • @SheldonK (Comment 30) : Not a lot of coordination required to run straight into someone…so it’s a redundant concept over here 😉

  • @FireTheLooser (Comment 31) : Yeh basically the only thing you need to see is which kids are bigger and pick those.
