Shraks vs Pumas

The Sharks will be looking to making a point at home after so nearly coming unstuck against a spirited Griquas team in Kimberly last week, having lead comfortably for most of the game while also playing against 14 men due to a Jonathan Francke red card in the 7th minute the Sharks had a torrid time in the final quarter eventually winning by 7 after a Zeilinga penalty in the final seconds of the game.

Sharks: 15 SP Marais, 14 Odwa Ndungane, 13 Sibusiso Sithole, 12 Paul Jordaan, 11 Tonderai Chavhanga, 10 Fred Zeilinga, 9 Cameron Wright, 8 Tera Mtembu (captain), 7 Etienne Oosthuizen, 6 Jacques Botes, 5 Marco Wentzel, 4 JC Astle, 3 Lourens Adriaanse, 2 Kyle Cooper, 1 Thomas du Toit.

Replacements: 16 Monde Hadebe, 17 Matt Stevens, 18 Johan Meyer, 19 Francois Kleinhans, 20 Hanco Venter, 21 Patrick Lambie, 22 Lionel Cronjé.

The Pumas will be on a high after an opening victory against the Cheetahs. Jimmy Stonehouse has a well drilled unit and has made only one change to his starting line up which see’s Giant Mtyanda coming in at number 5. The Pumas will try and take the physical game to the Sharks in the hope of unsettling the Currie Cup champs while Stonehouse will insist that his team maintains strict discipline.

Pumas: 15 JW Bell, 14 Ruwellyn Isbell, 13 JW Jonker, 12 Stefan Watermeyer, 11 Jerome Pretorius, 10 Justin van Staden, 9 Reynier van Rooyen, 8 Renaldo Bothma, 7 Jaco Bouwer, 6 Corne Steenkamp (captain), 5 Lubabalo Mtyanda, 4 Frikkie Spies, 3 DeJay Terblanche, 2 Francois du Toit, 1 Vincent Koch.

Replacements: 16 Frankie Herne, 17 Corne Fourie, 18 Marius Coetzer, 19 Uzair Cassiem, 20 Rosco Speckman, 21 JC Roos, 22 Heinrich Steyl.

    Your cheque with complimentry Sharks jersey signed by the whole team is with DHL…

    SHOCKING refereeing…

    Just shocking…

    I cannot see how SA REfs can defend such utter hogwash as refereeing and suggest it can be changed. At this level referees need to be good enough to blow at this level… they cannot “grow into” premiership refereeing.

    The Pumas can justly claim they were terribly hard done by.
