The Sharks fixture list has been released for the 2019 season and sees the Sharks avoiding the Brumbies and the Highlanders in the league phase of the competition. The Sharks will enjoy their Byes in Rounds 5 and 14, which divides the competition quite nicely as we play 4 games, have our Bye, then 8 games, our second Bye and then finish off with 4 games, the last of which is in Cape Town.


A curious fixture is the Reds game kicking off on a Friday at 15:05 at Jonsson Kings Park in Round 10?

  • The game against the Reds is on good Friday, hence the early start. It seems like the powers that be have finally taken Hound’s advice!

  • @T-Shark (Comment 1) : A 3 week tour of the Antipodes followed with a bye is close to perfect. We did avoid the Crusaders last year until the playoffs.

  • The Sharks better get points early as ending with Lions/Canes/Jaguares and Stormers isnt going to be easy as all those teams could be chasing playoffs spots.

    Seriously aren’t they moving to the Greenpoint Stadium.

  • Very favourable draw indeed. Gooooo Shaaarks

  • I realize that there’s no disruption to super rugby of a inbound tour next year because it’s a world cup year, however I wish the would figure out a way that there was no disruption every year.

    Will be interesting to see what the sharks can do, on paper we look to have good depth in a areas, especially at the center positions and wing.

    Whose our third choose hooker?

  • @revolverocelot (Comment 12) : main concern is depth at 10 think the rest is reasonably covered!

  • FH:Rob, curwin, and then that Visagie kid I guess, depends if ryno Smith is still on our books at that stage as we only loaned him to the cheetahs

    I figure Ben10 will be back at the sharks at some stage

  • @The hound (Comment 9) : It seemed to be almost certain they would move but its gone very quiet. I don’t know why they would move when they couldn’t even get 25000 for a currie cup final.

  • Chaps, am I missing something, or have the Sharks not recruited anyone new other than the schoolboys? Or is the announcement still to come?

  • Comment 16, posted at 22.11.18 10:42:33 by Karl Reply

  • @Karl (Comment 16) : You havnt missed anything. No new recruits. Barring options at 10 the Sharks have a lot in all other positions. Just a matter of opinion on quality

  • Comment 17, posted at 22.11.18 10:48:20 by SheldonK Reply

  • @SheldonK (Comment 17) : This must be a first in very many seasons… Jeez, not even a “prodigy” from that farm school in Bloemfontein named after a drab colour

  • Comment 18, posted at 22.11.18 11:12:08 by Karl Reply

  • @Karl (Comment 18) : I think they also waiting to see how SARu are going to implement this reducing of the number of contracted players idea. And then they also want to create a path for our juniors to come through and not be blocked by senior signings always

  • Comment 19, posted at 22.11.18 11:32:35 by SheldonK Reply

  • @SheldonK (Comment 19) : It makes a lot of sense what you’re saying, I’m just not used to seeing the Sharks, or any administration in the country be pennywise at all!

  • Comment 20, posted at 22.11.18 11:36:58 by Karl Reply

  • @Karl (Comment 16) : Season tickets prices went up again though and no internationals this year.

  • Comment 21, posted at 22.11.18 12:07:23 by Byron Wright Reply

  • @Byron Wright (Comment 21) : Ridiculous! I assume there will be even more of that shade cloth advertising in the stands to cover up the empty seats. Surely they could try and get more people attending games by giving away a few thousand tickets to school kids and in competitions

  • Comment 22, posted at 22.11.18 13:19:51 by Karl Reply

  • @revolverocelot (Comment 14) : I am sure he has signed for the Cheetahs. He is shining as a 13 in the Pro14 thus far. Him and Nico Lee are right there in the thackles made stats, as well as offloads.

  • @SheldonK (Comment 19) : U19’s had a great season, will be interesting to see their progress.

  • Comment 24, posted at 22.11.18 17:46:04 by KingCheetah Reply

  • Looking at the players we have contracted at all levels I don’t see a need for marquee signings

    We seem well stocked at prop with beast, schoeman, majola at LH and tank, coenie and Johnny at TH with a few promising youngesters playing super rugby challenge

    We have incredible depth at lock

    @cheetah: yep Ben10 is doing well at the cheetahs, I speculate that he will be a shark one day in the future.

  • Comment 25, posted at 22.11.18 19:49:36 by revolverocelot Reply

  • @KingCheetah (Comment 23) : Me too he won’t get fair game time at the sharks unless Rob gets injured even then I think Rob snr would rather shift Bosch and get someone else to cover 15. Better for him to stay at Cheetahs.

  • I read that Willie Le Roux wants to come back to SA and guess what..? He is talking to the Bulls…what happened to the Sharks? We used to be front runners when it come to available talent. Willie would be the tonic we need… why are we not talking to him? I asked this two years ago… do we really want to one day win the Super Rugby tournament cause our actions say something else. We still need a world class number 4 lock, 6 flank and fullback. Bosch and Fassi (especially Bosch) could learn so much from him like how to to attack the line a create space for the guy on the outside.
    The brains trust at the Sharks ever since Rudolph left has been so disappointing, I thought we were on the right track when Jake White become DOR as he would have had the vision to know which players are gold and which positions need an experienced campaigner to show the young guys something.

  • @GreatSharksays (Comment 27) : not sure about signing Willie. yes he’s good but during his time at the Sharks he really did nothing that great. Personally I’d rather sign another flyhalf and keep Bosch, Fassi and Mvovo as 15’s. also think Sharks is covered at 4 with Koegies, Paul and co. As for 6 yes think the Sharks must also try to sign a good fetcher but problem is I don’t think there is a quality one in the market!?

  • @JD (Comment 28) : Try to buy Chris cloete from Munster. He is meant for greater things than pro 14

  • Comment 29, posted at 26.11.18 17:46:10 by coolfusion Reply

  • @coolfusion (Comment 29) : However I think there is game plan for big strong orthodox flanks also not just always looking for get her types.

  • Comment 30, posted at 26.11.18 17:47:43 by coolfusion Reply

  • @coolfusion (Comment 30) : Meant to say small fetcher types…

  • Comment 31, posted at 26.11.18 17:48:20 by coolfusion Reply

  • @coolfusion (Comment 29) : ja maybe only problem is he has singed with Munster till 2022 so think that ship sailed. Maybe try to resign Marcell (if he’s over the knee troubles) as he could be available some time next year!?

  • @JD (Comment 28) : Willie went overseas, got a chance to work on his game away from the crazy SA fans and their crazy pressure. He has come back a much better player. The Boks’ only play maker. I would do anything to get Willie back. Thought Bosch would be a revaluation at fullback. So far he hasn’t seen himself as a playmaker but sees himself as an individual that does not understand what his role is so tries to be a gloryboy every time he gets the ball.

  • Comment 35, posted at 27.11.18 00:10:36 by GreatSharksays Reply

  • @GreatSharksays (Comment 35) : ja maybe he is worth another chance but really not sure if the Sharks will go for him. It’s easy to forget but Bosch is only 21 so he’s really still a youngster. Give the lad some time to mature and I’m sure he will deliver! Personally I must say I love the look of Fassi. He reminds me a lot of JJP and I would love to see him get more game time at 15.

  • If Willie is off to the Bulls perhaps we should look at Gelant. That guy always has a cracker game against the Sharks so i wouldnt mind him not playing against us.
