Sharks vs Griquas


Written by Henk Terblanche (Bokhoring)

The Sharks take on the Griquas at Kings Park and will be desperate to win this game. The Kwas will definitely target the creaky Sharks scrum which has been in turbo reverse against the Lions and Cheetahs. Likewise the Sharks have been vulnerable at the breakdown getting turned over regularly before being able to make use of the possession that comes their way.

15 Aphelele Fassi, 14 Werner Kok, 13 Lukhanyo Am (c), 12 Jeremy Ward, 11 Yaw Penxe, 10 Curwin Bosch, 9 Jaden Hendrikse, 8 Sikhumbuzo Notshe, 7 Thembelani Bholi, 6 Henco Venter, 5 Ruben van Heerden, 4 JJ van Mescht, 3 Michael Kumbirai, 2 Fezokuhle Mbatha, 1 Ox Nche.
Subs: 16 Dan Jooste, 17 Khwezi Mona, 18 Hanru Jacobs, 19 Aston Fortuin, 20 Dylan Richardson, 21 Sanele Nohamba, 22 Manie Libbok, 23 Anthony Volmink

  • 2nd game in 2 weeks that we concede a try in the 1st minute, sharks need to wake the f up. Really bad how far we’ve fallen in the last 9 months

  • Try Penxe! Griquas make a hash of a probing kick deep and don’t run it into touch.

  • Great chase and hard work from penxe try scored 19-7 sharks 34 minutes

  • Penxe had some good strength there, bumped off Verity-Am like he as a toddler and drove on over.

    Bosch again from the corner, 19-7.

  • Griquas again messing up, Sharks with great pressure in the 22 and a comedy of errors from Griquas, might be a 5m scrum.

  • Worst part is the ball is already away! If Ward just stayed back we’d have had a 5M scrum.

  • Much better play but the sharks in the 2nd quarter. Not perfect but any means, but at least taking their chances. A cheetah loss against WP puts the sharks in the semi’s but things still need to get better… Next week will be a good signal.

  • @Here be dragons (Comment 47) : can’t be taken quickly. As there were player inline from both sides which means ref had to penalise griquas for being offside or blow and make them take it again. Playerbwasbrunnimg before ball thrown which means he was offside

  • 47-19 full time. Annoyed with the stupid points we gave up, but nice to score a good few ourselves and dig in after starting out 7 points in the hole. Still frustrated with the lack of street smarts. We can’t effectively step up when other teams know how to play to the ref especially at the breakdown.

  • Province beating the Cheetahs send the sharks to the semi’s… Next week will just be about claiming positions in the top 4. Sharks home semi is a thing of the past anyway.

  • Cheetahs nearly did us a favor, last minute penalty for wp loss, have to say every game today it is clear that no ref understands the scrum, really a gamble who gets a penalty.

  • @Pablo Dinero (Comment 49) : 100% true, but making stupid moves is just infuriating, don’t do it when up by 1 or 100. We have good skills at times but really lack a clinical edge that Lions and Bulls have.

  • @Here be dragons (Comment 55) : Absolutely! Just trying to find the positives in an otherwise pretty poor Currie cup season. One good win against the bulls ( thanks to Morne choking) and wins against only the pumas and griquas otherwise, is not impressive. Let’s hope some confidence had come back thanks to a better all round have.
