Sharks team for the Bulls (Updated)


Written by Henk Terblanche (Bokhoring)

Posted in :Currie Cup on 23 Aug 2018 at 15:33

Mvovo has been called up for the match against the Bulls. JLDP has not made the team sheet – I can only assume that he must be out injured. Johan Deysel is back in the squad, and Fassi has been rewarded with a call-up after a very good performance in last week’s friendly.

UPDATE: JLDP will undergo groin surgery and will be out for the entire Currie Cup. Hopefully he will be available for consideration for the end of year tour.

  • Overall looks like a strong team and a stronger team on paper than the Bulls, although the Sharks hardly play as they should on paper. Front five could be a bit of a concern but lets see how they go. Moronic 22man squads….

  • Whats happened to Rhyno Smith? I see photos of him training but never included in any squad? Heard he was looking at the 7s but doesnt seem to be part of their squads either altho did play the 1 tournament. Just seems odd if still on a Sharks contract

  • I think Shreuder is an excellent resource for Cam to learn from and get impact time in the 2nd half. Backlund looks good. Curwin needs to find his mojo again. Mvovo defence is not gr8. Would’ve been nice to have JLDP back for this big game.

  • @ChrisS (Comment 11) : Dont know too much other than he has been club rugby in Durban for a couple years, bit of a youngster still and formed part of the junior teams. Where from intially only those mroe informed will know unfortunately, but have heard a few rave about him so lets see what he can do at this level.

  • @SheldonK (Comment 1) : No ways surely we must have 23 throughout the tournament!

    Juan Schoeman has never impressed me but lets see. The modern scrum usually has the loosehead attacking the tighthead who tends to use technique and body position to defend more than more forward. I haven’t seen him push many players back but maybe a long run is what he needs.

  • @Byron Wright (Comment 13) : Schoeman seems to be explosive in open play but doesnt have that explosiveness in the scrum, perhaps his leg power to weight ratio not great.
    And yeh Currie Cup rules- only 22man teams so chances of uncontested scrums are high. Think there are rolling subs though as well if not mistaken?

  • @Sharkfinn (Comment 9) : Make no mistake – Schreuder is good scrumhalf.

    However Cam is not a rookie either – he has been playing senior rugby from 2010 including a two year stint at Montpelier. In my opinion there is no other scrumhalf in SA (and that includes Faf) with a better box kick and more accurate pass from the base than Cam. He does however have to work on decision making and probably his defense. But for that you need game time.

  • Just read on Supersport that the Sharks “we’re not impressive against Bordeaux Begles” that guy obviously did not watch the game as I thought we were very good in atrocious weather. Or am I the only one who is optimistic about this Currie Cup? We have a fantastic backline and our defence was great apart from the 2 late tries. If our forwards can give us clean ball we will be a real handful to any team. Supersport already backing Province for the title.

  • Just got back from a really good game, anytime we beat the Bulls is a bonus.
    Such a good vibe in the stadium, even that thieving bulls ref couldn’t put a dampener on it.
    The smallish crowd got on his case and forced him go back and relook the try where the Bulls guy carried the ball out.he really didn’t want to.
    What pissed me off is the linesman was right on the spot and couldn’t see what 10,000 fans could.
    We are destroying our game with these incompetent officials,this a first level game with junior school officials.
    Thought our looses were magnificent ,Dan detractors should watch huis defence in this game as well as his part in three of the tries,

  • @The hound (Comment 63) : The stepout was so obvious and the second half became the refereeing show. Considering how well the bulls played last week and that it was our first hit as a team, we played well.

    Let me just put it out there … That new winger Fassi is going to be the next JP Petersen.

  • Good yet ugly win by the Sharks. Watching the Mitre 10 Cup i can see why NZ is so far ahead- heir catching and passing skills even at that level is far beyond anything we have in this country. I struggled to watch the Sharks game on the weekend due to all the errors and stoppages. Not sure what skills our skills coach is workign on but it sure isnt handling

    Deysel’s tackle on that overrated Bulls fly half was worth the price of the entire season ticket
    I remember when this was a site where Sharks fans came to enjoy the team,its turned into a place to run the team down.
    That was a great gamete be at.

  • @The hound (Comment 75) : No i couldnt make the game this week so had to judge watching on a small tv at a friends place so on tv it wasnt very enjoyable to watch. Fair enough the wind but the same sloppy passing we have seen all year. I will watch and support the guys every week but as its entertainment i feel i can comment on the quality and at the moment its not great, especially when i switch over and watch ITM Cup. There were good aspects to the game dont get me wrong….2nd half defense especially…but there are just a lot of moments where i wonder what on earth they are thinking and trying to do.

  • @The hound (Comment 63) : I have been one of the most vocal critics of Dan but he was immense in this game and not a single knock-on! if he can keep working on those hands there is always space for a physical player in a loose trio, just ask Rassie how we went without one. The Sharks have to loan one of ward/deysel/louw to the kings after the CC such a waste of talent and we can have a recall clause in case of injuries.

    Vosloo disappointed me we really need a good openside.
