    Stuart Berry working overtime this weekend? He’s running the lines at Loftus on Friday then again at Ellis on Saturday.

    Peyper once again drawn to ref the Sharks……no surprises there

  • 3

    @ nortierd:
    don’t worry. Van blommestein will help

  • 4

    @ MacroBull:
    Vir wie?
    Hoeveel keer het Peyper al die jaar vir die Sharks geblaas?
    Moet seker hier by die 8-9 keer wees. Dis ongehoord

  • 5

    @ nortierd:
    ja ek kan dit self nie glo nie.

    ek dink hulle se hulle los die best ref vir die groot games.. en die sharks was die voorlopers van die begin af die jaar. dus beteken dit Peyper is die beste ref in suid afrika konstant sonder enige twyfel?

  • 6

    @ nortierd:
    was van blommestein nie daai ref wat op loftus van twaalf different angles vir soos tien minute gekyk het hoe de allende die bal knock oor die doellyn nie?

  • 7

    @ MacroBull:
    Weet nie so mooi van daai een nie….ag wat, ons het in Durban met hom as ref vir die Sharks geklop, so hopelik, met n beter en sterker span, kan ons dit tuis ook weer doen

  • 8

    @ nortierd:
    op kings park kon julle john smit die eerste helfte en gert smal die tweede helfte opgesit het om die ref en albei spanne sou dieselfde gespeel het

  • 9

    @6 nee daai ref was johan greef… ek sweer as saru daai ou n ref maak wen die stormers 2015

  • 10

    @ MacroBull:
    Was daar nie n dodgy drie teen die WP gegee nie?

  • 11

    @ nortierd:
    Nee ek kan nie onthou nie, die bulle het een drie gedruk waar hougaard geskop het en akona om kolbe gehardloop het. Dit is al wat ek kan onthou?

  • 12

    @ MacroBull:
    Die een waaraan ek dink was teen die Leeus en die TMO het op een of ander onverklaarbare wyse besluit dat dit n drie was.
    Dink dit was Willie Roos, maar sy van is verkeerd gespel, moet nie met n R begin nie

    Willie Oros?

    @ nortierd:
    I was just looking and Kanko had to withdraw late in the Cheetahs game, Have you noticed how many “late with drawels” the sharks have had this year? It is worrying, because how many sharks players did the sharks have to wait till the last minute to play if their injury is not bad enough?

    This is quite a trend forming at the sharks.

  • 15

    @ MacroBull:
    They used to enjoy playing those mind games under Plum, selecting a team and then a different team would run out on the Saturday.

    They should have had the better than the Cheetahs in the loose forward department, especially considering that both Brussouw and Boom were injured.

    Where is the Keegan Cullen of loose forwards?

  • 16

    @ nortierd:
    You mean the Daniel Craig of captains?

    did he go to play against the kings last week?

  • 17

    @ MacroBull:
    Not sure, but in the beginning of the season they had Kanko, Marcell, Alberts, Daniel etc to select from.

    Massive names and huge depth, all over the park, now it’s all of a sudden a bit questionable as to how deep that pool really is.

    Deysel was a huge flop on Saturday, and the decision to make him captain has to be questioned as well. Last year Frans was captain at some stage, didn’t really work out, but even he would have been a better choice than Deysel.

    @ nortierd:
    You forgot about Botes and Tera

    That is quite telling when you think about it, do the Sharks really have a captain?

    Only the real die hard Shark fans rate Tera.

    If the rookie hooker that played the Sharks in Durban could rile Bissie so easily, I’m sure Tiaan wouldn’t struggle to get him to lose his cool.

    Who else though?

    They have tried McCloud, but he has been relegated to a 10 minute player by Reinach and wasn’t very successful as a captain, also to prone to brain farts. Frans last year didn’t work, but maybe it was because he didn’t work at getting fit and losing weight under Plum.

    Maybe in the long run PSdT can be a good captain for them, but he is injury prone at this stage.

    They should have stuck with Keegan Daniel to be honest

  • 20

    @ nortierd:
    I agree, captain is a vital component to any team, the sharks did well in two games this year when they were players down, but when they needed someone to “lead the march” and build belief, there was no one.

    Keegan Daniel would have been a better bet as captain this year for sure… or Botes, not so sure about PSdT.

    I think the Sharks will have one more crack at it next year, but after that they will just sink for a few years.

  • 21

    @ MacroBull:
    Botes is not a regular starter, they are keeping him around almost as a “benefit year” to say thanks for his service to them.

    Looks like Jake didn’t rate Keegan as a regular starter either, and obviously felt that because Bissie is his first name on the team sheet, he can get the job. That’s one of the problems the Sharks and Jake encountered this year, he had decided who his SR winning team will be, and didn’t deviate from it, unless injuries intervened. Then he was caught short, especially at fly half.

    Remember his words at the beginning of the season “Lambie is my nr 10 and he will be playing every minute of every match”?

    Once Lambie got injured, he started falling around, he had ample back up, but Zeilinga also got injured, Swiel doesn’t seem to either be able to make the step up, or fit into the current Shark playing pattern, and Frans was an ok stopgap, but only when their forwards won them vital penalties and the game.

    None of the other fly halves could have been full of confidence when called upon, while knowing that Lambie was the only 10 Jake really rated and wanted, and needed for his side to be successful.

  • 22

    @ nortierd:
    Well if Jake was going to select his captain using regular starter as a criteria then he may as well have made Fransie captain.

    I think it is a much bigger issue than flyhalf, the Sharks simply does not have a clear captain. I mean their reserve scrumhalf is the vice captain.

    They had all the motivation this year… the draw… excellent start (but they could not build on it), lose the the highlanders…the tour…excellent tour with their reserve flyhalves (but they could not build on it)… lose to the Stormers (looking at the vice captain).

    There is no way they will win next year, leaderless.

  • 23

    Look at the chiefs at their peak… they had Craig Clarke who was phenominal (look where the Chiefs are now without him), the bulls had pre”ek weet alles” matfield, the Saders had Ritchee… the sharks have the Dup brothers.

  • 24

    22 @ MacroBull:
    I agree, I’m sure we all did, that the Sharks had the best opportunity to win the SR this year.

    I’m on record somewhere where I said that I can’t see them losing home or away to any of the other SA franchises, that’s how good a squad they had and especially with their pro-active behind the scenes professionalism.

    And they shouldn’t have, especially at home against a weak Stormer side missing most of their big names and who had a year from hell.
    They should also not have lost to a Cheetah side propping up the bottom of the log.

    So, either most of us overestimated them and bought into the “this year is our year” hype, or the players can’t deliver when they are clear cut favorites.

    You can’t go from winning 3/4 in NZ and Australia with the adversity they had, to coming home and losing against lesser opposition unless there is something seriously wrong in the camp or in their heads
