  • Weather been great today. Should be a belter of a game. So chuffed to see KD back. In my top 10 favourite Sharks of all time.

  • I think we’re coming down to earth tonight. But maybe I’m being maudlin. 2015 did a number on my confidence. Yet perversely can’t wait for the game to start. What can I say, if they win I will be okay all week, horrible corporate job notwithstanding

  • Guys,what about jordaan missing the try-scoring opportunity?some guys on here were talking about an easy win.ive just seen this happen too often in the past.another good start,and then a game that should have been won..well,it is a drawn,but it feels like a loss.pardon me being slightly negative,but complacency bordering on arrogance from some supporters.not the best performance from the team,but still had so many chances to win it.yet,did not.

  • Two pivotal moments were JPP passing too late to Jordaan for a certain try and Jordaan spilling the ball on the try line for a certain try.

    Joe’s BMT failure was just the cherry on top.

    The Sharks just didn’t pitch tonight. It should never have been a tied game before that final kick.

    The whole team needs to hang their heads in shame at the dropped two points. Two points in this tournament can be decisive.

    And it’s a reminder to the fans not to get too far ahead of themselves. This Sharks team is far from the finished article. There is promise and improvement from last year – in defence and team spirit and Willie’s unpredictability – but nothing more than that. Hopefully this dreadful display puts expectations back in perspective.

    Crusaders will be strong favourites next weekend and thank god for that because the Sharks seem to only play when they’re underdogs.

  • Sorry for being disappointed when the Sharks lose a game they should have won.

    When you consider the Sharks were heavy pre match favourites and butchered a win its more like a choke or complacency than ‘character’ to score 10 points to draw the game.

    Whilst we could have scored 3 tries I’m concerned how we were destroyed at the breakdowns, pushed backwards in the scrum, the consistent pattern of handling errors over 4 games and the obvious fact we generally look quite impotent with ball in hand.

    so im happy with two points, we played 3 away games and yet were still unbeaten

    Im not unset with joe, this human, these things happen

    over the course of the year joe will win us way more games than he will lose us

    it amazes me that the bulls done start shoeman at FH even last year he looked good in SR

  • A few casual observations from reading some other blogs:

    1. The Sharks players are obviously copping it a bit for celebrating the win before the kick. That was embarrassing πŸ˜†
    2. Lions fans are awfully arrogant these days aren’t they? Can’t wait for the Sharks’ showdown with the Lions…

    Even the 5110 days of the bulls, the Sharks struggled against them.

    The one year, Sharks had to beat one of the most woeful bulls side, to secure a home semi – what did our Sharks do? Everything but secure the home semi.

  • What is concerning is that the Sharks have not improved as the competition has progressed. Score differentials have diminished to a draw and next in the march of entropy is a loss. I understand that the 6 day turnaround may have had a hand in it.

  • Jordaan put himself in position twice to score tries; he fluffed it once and JP once. But what I’m saying is that Jordaan was one of the few guys who had a decent game. JP was mostly bad, Reinach made no positive difference coming on and Joe…

  • In retrospect beat the Stormers away and draw with the Bulls away in 6 days should be a cause for major celebration for a young Sharks team,it still is.
    The feeling of maudlin on these pages is due to the fact that we won this one,we just were too windgat to take it.
    Willie crossed the line ,before he threw ,a hey boys I’m not selfish,here Paul you score ,pass.
    Joe missed a kick that the 35 kg linesman Rasta would have converted with ease.
    Maybe this draw was a painless wakeup call and could just be the stimulus needed to rid this team of a lot of windgat that has been slowly creeping in.

  • The only thing more annoying than the butchered opportunities and jersey numbers ironed on by someone’s gran was the inability of Nkumane and James to get Ulengo’s name right more than twice in 80 minutes. Pathetic.

  • @The hound (Comment 403) : better now than in the final.commentators in the studio were talking about how this will affect the sharks log standings at the end of the season?this was a draw away from home.and there is a huge lesson to be learnt: first walk the walk.first win the game.the lesson learn last night might ultimatley be more important in progressing in this tournament,than the log poiints.

  • @robdylan (Comment 408) : played like a champ, he is certainly an out and out 4. Imagine Martin Johnson trying to play 7, it just does not work. Also surprised by how little respect the Bulls are given. I knew this would be a tough, hard fought war, and that is exactly what it was. I am proud of the boys efforts, we are a fit never say die team who refuse to lie down. Yes we drew, but in reality, this game was ours. I think people need to give other teams a bit more respect, to say we should destroy a very talented Bulls team at Loftus is just stupid really. The Sharks will go from strength to strength, their character is unbelievable!

  • @50shadesofshark (Comment 406) : Reinach actually managed to win us some ground with his kicks. Not sure what Claassens’ problem was.

  • @robdylan (Comment 414) : I think you’re being harsh on Claassens. Our forwards were being dominated in the first half. He always got the ball on the back-foot.

  • @Ben (Comment 419) : Reinach on the other hand came on when our forwards were in the ascendancy. A few times he kicked the ball either too deep or not long enough.

  • @Ben (Comment 420) : Agree. Considering our forwards were starting to dominate when Reinach came on, he just handed most of their hard-won possession back to the Bulls.
