  • Glad to see Koster at 12! We’ve be struggling there since Andre left.

    Nice to see the Ginger Ninja out playing well for Newcastle. Schreuder at 9 and then there’s Stephan Lewies over in the Harlequins team.

  • It’s time that they fix the standard of refereeing … Not changing the rules again

  • Griquas 6 flank scores on what could easily have seen as a forward hand over. Sharks young guns playing with energy, lots of mistakes, fassi butchered a certain try and knock ons are getting out of hand

  • I am a bit concerned with the front rows we are taking up north. After Thomas and Ox we really do not have much quality at the moment

  • AJ enjoying griquas running rugby, pity the sharks are not getting the same opportunity

  • So grabbing a player’s shorts is now considered on the ball in a ruck

  • Some good periods of play from the Sharks. Pity we can’t keep the ball long enough

  • Starting to resemble the 2020 superrugby game play. Really looking good for our youngsters

  • We seem to be good at loose head (Mona was solid in the scrums and Mchunu also impressed) but I am not really sure about our depth at tight head. Kumbirai struggled again while Meyer did bring some stability when he came on.

  • @Bokhoring (Comment 32) : Ward really stepped up in the CC and SR unlocked. He seemed a bit more mature and level headed.

  • @Bokhoring (Comment 35) : Eh? He has only ever played loosehead. Why would you want to take a damn fine loosehead and retread him as a tighhead? You’ll destroy his career much like you did to Coenie.

  • Comment 36, posted at 01.03.21 08:48:37 by Loosehead Reply

     
  • @Loosehead (Comment 36) : I don’t want that at all – was responding to Byron.

    If I recall he did move to tighthead in some CC games, but I don’t like the idea at all.

  • What is happening with Mapimpi, I know he hasn’t left, we would have heard something about it?
    I’m pretty sure Tyler Paul left, am I right?
    Assuming both the above are not available to us I’d like to see the following team play:

    1. Ox Nche
    2. Kerron van Vuuren
    3. Thomas du Toit
    4. JJ vd Mescht
    5. Ruben van Heerden
    6. James Venter
    7. Phepsi Buthelezil
    8. Sikumbuzo Notshe
    9. Sanele Nohamba
    10. Curwin Bosch
    11. Werner Kok
    12. Jermery Ward
    13. Lukhanyo Am (c)
    14. Sbu Nkosi
    15. Aphelele Fassi

  • @Hulk (Comment 38) : I forgot we have Siya Kolisi, so I’d play him at 7, relegating Phepsi to the bench.

  • @Hulk (Comment 38) : Mapimpi in for Kok on the one wing and Bholi at 7.

    I also prefer Hendrikse at 9 as I think his pass is faster and more accurate. Nohamba’s passes go a bit low or high sometimes.
