  • I see Le Roux Rotes and Boeta Chamberlain isn’t there. I hope they are both injured and not left.

  • @durbsguy (Comment 2) : Roets has gone back to the Pumas. Apparently he was on loan to the Sharks.

  • Hi all.
    I think it’s been more than 6 months since I last posted. I hope you are all still well. It has been a challenging, hectic 6 months…and I am enjoying the first day of a much-needed week of leave.
    Lovely to be able to watch some rugby on a chilled day. Pity about all the injuries, but good to see where we are at and to have a look at our depth in some areas…

  • @ChrisS (Comment 3) : Ah disappointing, but lock seems to be a position we always end up managing to find a decent player in, even when the stocks are cleared out. I did miss Jandre Marais yesterday when watching Bordeaux.

  • So annoying that potentially our best season in over a decade got scrapped. Will never get over it.

  • The 21 point yellow card was very unlucky…first contact was head to head and threw everything else in the tackle…

  • Well these warm up games we are usually underwhelming, so far so good

  • @pastorshark (Comment 11) : Full agreement, very well handled by Rasta, other ref could easily have gone red with the new laws on head contact

  • @jdolivier (Comment 9) : Their second try included an inside pass where the Bull had both feet in touch…

  • At this rate we will have 80 points on us

  • The Bullsare playing well. Clearly well coached…line up defensively in a flash. But it is noticeable how the Sharks come into the game when the Bulls are actually penalised at the breakdown…

  • This is a full super rugby strength bulls side vs a mismatch currie cup team. Lots of new 1st s for sharks structurally and its showing. Rassa has missed a bit and weve left a few tries out there.

  • Can’t wait to read the reviews of this match : amazing bulls galvanized by Jake, sharks totally out muscled, there wil be no mention of the injury count. Rasta wasn’t good, but he sure was better than usual

  • @Here be dragons (Comment 51) : At first look, the tackle didn’t seem high at all. It wasn’t truly a yellow, IMHO.

  • @Karl (Comment 53) : After another look, yes, Ward’s head did connect with the Bulls player. Although the ref uttered a stupid secondary reason: ‘no arms wrapping’. There was totally arms going in to wrap. A lot of bulls fan boys thought Rasta was too heavy on their team. I genuinely think they earned every yellow (both at the breakdown).
