  • Whilst I understand the usefulness of the game to provide entertainment and assess skills for the coach, I’m not sure I’m as interested in this game as I ought to be.

  • A couple of Sharks looked a lot better than against the Bulls. Sanele Nohamba, Ox, Andrews all had good games.

  • @Bokhoring (Comment 2) : I didn’t get to see it, but I’m glad to hear that. Maybe the loss to the Bulls was a good wake up call for the Sharks.
