Super Rugby 2016: Sharks v Lions

A critical game for both teams at Kings Park today, with interim supremacy in the Africa 2 conference at stake.

Gary Gold has repeatedly stated that he needs his charges to take their opportunities better, to execute well and make good decisions once they are in prime attacking territory. Against the Lions, one feels the Sharks should perhaps enjoy a number of opportunities, particularly if their strong defensive game comes to the fore once more. Whether the home side is able to profit from those moments is the big question.

There is little doubt that the Lions will bring their typical high-risk helter-skelter style of rugby into this encounter. Should the Sharks allow them the space and time to get that game going, it could be a long afternoon for the men in black.

Kick-off in Durban is at 17h05.

Sharks: 15 Willie le Roux, 14 JP Pietersen, 13 Paul Jordaan, 12 Andre Esterhuizen, 11 Lwazi Mvovo, 10 Joe Pietersen, 9 Cobus Reinach, 8 Daniel du Preez, 7 Jean-Luc du Preez, 6 Marcell Coetzee, 5 Stephan Lewies, 4 Etienne Oosthuizen, 3 Coenie Oosthuizen, 2 Franco Marais, 1 Tendai Mtawarira (captain).
Replacements: 16 Kyle Cooper, 17 Juan Schoeman, 18 Lourens Adriaanse, 19 Hyron Andrews, 20 Keegan Daniel, 21 Michael Claassens, 22 Garth April, 23 Odwa Ndungane

Lions : 15 Andries Coetzee, 14 Ruan Combrinck, 13 Lionel Mapoe, 12 Rohan Janse van Rensburg, 11 Courtnall Skosan, 10 Elton Jantjies, 9 Ross Cronjé, 8 Warren Whiteley (c), 7 Warwick Tecklenburg, 6 Jaco Kriel, 5 Franco Mostert, 4 Andries Ferreira/Lourens Erasmus, 3 Julian Redelinghuys, 2 Malcolm Marx, 1 Dylan Smith.
Replacements: 16 Armand van der Merwe, 17 Corné Fourie, 18 Ruan Dreyer, 19 Ruan Ackermann, 20 Cyle Brink, 21 Faf de Klerk, 22 Jaco van der Walt, 23 Howard Mnisi.

  • For a team that has been poor,with some players bordering on abysmal (take a bow Coenie) they are still only trailing by 12.
    They were outplayed for most of the 1st half, but are not finding themselves out of touch with the score.

  • So there are going to be a lot of people complaining about the loss and how bad we were tonight but lets be honest to each other, the Sharks haven’t shown us anything aside from their defense in previous games(this one is useless to mention) to take them seriously. The whole character thing isn’t really showing to me, its more like a smoke screen. Look at some of the older more experienced guys faces. It’s not faces beaming with confidence or belief. Like I said, it’s not just about this game, it’s been there all along. Those who are surprised about this game wasn’t attending class in the previous ones.

  • Gentlemen, we butchered 2 tries, were terrible in the line outs and our handling sucked. However, 8 scrum penalties against us were WRONG!!!!!! The lions were allowed to transgress in the rucks, and every single time they tried to force a scrum off a tackle they played illegally. So all in all if anyone would like to be a doom prophet, we played badly, we did not play worse than them. We were beaten by a luckier team on the day. Golds member if you do not like the sharks, their coaches or their supporters. Please leave, your constant aggrevation of rob is no longer amusing

  • Gary set the tone last week with his behaviour towards the TMO. And it showed in this match, loose no discipline even Beast started arguing with the ref. I truly hope this is a wake up call the team needed, but my mind keeps telling me we are unravelling and that things are going to get worse.

  • @Gold’s Member (Comment 173) : The thing I think you do not get, is that we know the sharks are not nearly the finished product, but since you are criticizing the Sharks so much, I doubt that you are a real supporter and just a troll, you had nothing good to say about any game anything since before the two warm up games, I know and will admit that the sharks played shit tonight, but I belief that they only need time, how long did it take the Lions to get where they are, how long did it take the highlanders, and yet you on here stating NZ team are like this and like that, I’m a South African supporting a SA team, and we will get there, so take your trolling put it in your mouth and fuck off as you promised

  • @nortie (Comment 188) : Sharks messed up a good opportunity at the start of the game, got penalised at about every scrum in the first half. Lions used the territory from penalties to get ahead – granted helped through some poor tackles from the Sharks. Sharks had to start chasing the game – have no clue on attack. Got turned over at will.

  • @jdolivier (Comment 203) : dont agree 10p% with you. They (Coenie) got smashed in the scrums. Maybe not deserved everytime, but most of the time it was correct. Our handling was crap, our lineouts were about 80% which is on par for us, however second last success rate in the comp. We dont exit well at all. Very poor decision making on turnover ball aswell as not finishing off the two tries because of poor decision making.

    All in all, we were pretty much kakker than the lions.

  • Coenie is no tight head. Most of the penalties against him were fair IMO. Thereafter the Lions scrum got the run of the green in the refs mind. Time to start with Claasens, April and Adriaanse.

  • @sharksRTB no arguments that we were shoddy. Mapoe’s try was a bit of luck, besides that 9 of their points were from very debatable penalties. That puts us back at 10-9 which would be a more accurate description of the game. They were not good either. Neither teams would stand a chance in any form of play off.

  • we’re ok, lions are very very good

    they were so good at ripping the ball

    they carried the ball up so so well

    Janjies is on fire, his in the form of his life

    akermann is coaching these guys incredibly well

    we need our injured players back, and clearly we need a better back up option that joe and april

    losing coatzee hurts but his also been been hot and cold thus far this season

    the twins looked great in pre season (they still look good) but this is the toughest rugby tournament in the world they still have a ways to go, and im not sure we’re doing all we can to prepare them

    the lions play players you’ve never even heard of and they fit right in

    all is not lost though, we can still get the into the quarter finals as the third best sa team and hopefully from there we can do something

    we do need to add depth at lock for next season, some one call Lood

    we looked so so poor today, i feel for beast cause the ref was strange but we didnt lose cause of the ref, we lost cause the lions are amazing

    Lions absolutely dominated us in the first half

It’s not all doom and gloom like some are saying, this is a seriously fucking long competition and we might get a surprise from our beloved Sharks, I just wouldn’t bet money on it.

    We turnedover their ball a couple of times, and 2 / 3 of those times they turned it backed within 1 phase.

  • @Henkb (Comment 283) : maybe but still no where near where they’re suppose to be with the quality players on their books!

  • Interesting not much mention has been made of the Sharks running the ball a lot more on Saturday than they did vs the Crusaders….perhaps falling into the trap of trying to play like the Lions and them being better at it. People have asked for a more ball in hand approach and have said they dont mind losing if thats the case…well that happened. If you do keep the ball in hand more you do become susceptible to handling errors and the resultant scrum penalties killed the sharks. Also interesting to note that the attack or lack thereof is directed at Gold yet Rob DuPreez was signed as attack coach and no mention made of him. Personally i thought the Sharks intent was a lot better but execution was a lot worse than previous weeks.

  • @SheldonK (Comment 285) : my main concern is the forwards! They seem out of sort and not nearly as good as in the beginning! This Sharks pack has the potential to be a good unit yet they are getting bosses around the field. As for the running only the first 5 odd min was good the rest was from side to side without going anywhere!

  • @JD (Comment 286) : The forwards are being outmuscled…we have to accept that. Its why we take half our pack to secure any ball which leaves most of them on the ground and unable to play the next phase or two…that doesnt help your attack at all. The Sharks did keep the ball in hand (when we didnt drop) it a lot more…teams do move it side to side across the field looking for gaps and mismatches…you cant go straight through all the time. The Lions rush defense also caused us trouble. It seems the Sharks are intent on not playing a rush defense themselves for some reason. Could it be a lack of fitness…?

  • @SheldonK (Comment 287) : but why is the pack being outmuscled? Beast, Coenie, EO, Marcell, Twins is all big and strong so I really can’t see a reason why the Sharks pack is not performing better!

  • @JD (Comment 288) : Big and strong is all relative depending who you compare to. At the moment its nothing sneaky or tactical that the opposition are doing- they are just out muscling our forwards in the tackle and rucks. Our guys need to man up and show exactly how tough and strong they are or are those muscles just soft and for show.
