Poor Sharks have a slim chance for playoffs

The Sharks had the perfect opportunity to secure a spot in the playoffs but could not pitch up on Saturday against the Stormers.

It was not that the Stormers were brilliant in what they did to win the game.

They now need to win against the Jaguares in the last game and they will be hoping that the Rebels loose against the Highlanders.

It is never good when your destiny is in someone other hands.

If all these happens then they will have to travel to New Zealand and go and win against the inform defending champions, the Crusaders.

I will tell you now that will not happen, you do not pitch up in Christchurch and beat the Saders.

The Rebels may loose against the Highlanders, but with the poor form from the Shark and even worst game plan they have been playing one do not even see them beating the Jaguares.

Add to that the Sharks have some serious injury problems as well. Jean-Luc Du Preez missed the Stormers clash and it looks he will be out again this weekend.

The chances are good that his twin brother Dan playing is also slim.

The Sharks were poor and they will need a total 360 to even get close to challenge the Saders, if they even make it so far.

Nkosi is also in doubt after picking up an ankle injury.

It looks more likely now that we again can only put our hopes in the Lions.
