PREVIEW: Currie Cup, Round Nine

Thu, 07 Sep 2017 17:52

IN THE SPOTLIGHT: The Sharks will hunt their seventh successive Currie Cup victory – a feat they last achieved in 2010 – when they travel to Nelspruit to take on the Pumas on Friday as the competition enters the ninth round.

The Sharks are currently on top of the standings with six wins from seven matches.

In Round Nine's other matches, the Golden Lions travel to Kimberley to take on Griquas on Friday and on Saturday Western Province host the Free State Cheetahs at Newlands.

The Blue Bulls have a bye in Round Nine.

We take a look at all the Round Nine action!

Friday, September 8:

Pumas v Sharks 
(Mbombela Stadium, Nelspruit - Kick-off: 17.00; 15.00)

The KwaZulu-Natalians, who leaped to the top of the table last weekend, have been in fine form this season, with their only defeat so far in the opening round of the competition against the Free State Cheetahs.
 
They will, however, face a determined Pumas outfit looking to return to winning ways after being pipped by one point last week. The Sharks won the last three matches between the sides, which included a 29-0 victory in the second round.
 
But the Pumas emerged victorious in Nelspruit in 2014 and 2015, which will boost their confidence. The Lowvelders have made five changes to their team for this match, which includes the return of fullback Justin van Staden to the starting XV, while prop De-Jay Terblanche will achieve a special milestone as he plays his 170th match for the union.
The Sharks welcome back Springbok flyhalf Curwin Bosch in one of four changes to the starting team, with the others being the inclusion of props Thomas du Toit and Ross Geldenhuys in the front row and Garth April at fullback.

"Being top of the log at this stage is pleasing and it is due reward for the effort and character shown by our players over the last few weeks," said Sharks head coach Robert du Preez.

"There is no time for complacency though and we need to ensure that we carry the momentum from our six wins on the trot into this tough fortnight fixtures.
 
"The Pumas are a good side and showed just how dangerous they can be last week against the Golden Lions. Playing them in Nelspruit will be a tough challenge, but our players are motivated though and want to retain our winning ways."

Pumas head coach Brent Janse van Rensburg knows that his side will be up against a stern defence at Kings Park.

"This week poses a challenge - it is a very good Sharks team," said Janse van Rensburg. "They are a team that is very good in the set piece. They scored a lot of tries from their set piece as well as from turnover ball. Defensively they are very good. They only conceded 17 tries in the competition thus far.

"They are really abrasive in the collision, they can keep you out so it is very important that we execute our plan well and make sure that we don't give them opportunities to launch their play from set pieces."

Recent results:
2017: Sharks won 29-0, Durban
2016: Sharks won 33-10, Nelspruit
2015: Sharks won 27-26, Durban
2015: Pumas won 33-24, Nelspruit
2014: Pumas won 32-22, Nelspruit

Prediction: It will be a tight encounter, but we think the Sharks will win this one by seven points.

Teams:

Pumas: 15 Justin van Staden, 14 Jean-Paul Lewis, 13 Jerome Pretorius, 12 Hennie Skorbinski (captain), 11 Ruwellyn Isbell, 10 Kobus Marais, 9 Reynier van Rooyen, 8 Willie Engelbrecht, 7 Thembelani Bholi, 6 Chris Cloete, 5 Cameron Lindsay, 4 Stefan Willemse, 3 Pieter Scholtz, 2 Mark Pretorius, 1 De-Jay Terblanche.

Griquas v Golden Lions
(Kimberley Park, Kimberley - Kick-off: 19.15; 17.15 GMT)

Griquas will look to bounce back from a disappointing result last week when they host the Golden Lions, who are fresh off their first win in five outings, in Kimberley on Saturday. 

The hosts have won only one of their last six matches against the Johannesburg side dating back to 2013.

However, they will take comfort from the fact that they went down against the Golden Lions by only five points at Ellis Park earlier in the season.
 
Golden Lions coach Swys de Bruin's side shows five personnel changes, with prop Jacobie Adriaanse and Albertus Smith starting

Griquas made four changes up-front which sees hooker Abraham le Roux and former Junior Springbok prop Nicolaas Oosthuizen feature in a new-look front row.

The Golden Lions currently occupy last place in the Currie Cup standings with two wins and five losses.

Griquas are just above De Bruin's side in sixth position with an identical win/loss record, but with an extra bonus point.

Recent results:
2017: Golden Lions won 48-43, Johannesburg
2016: Griquas won 30-24, Kimberley
2015: Golden Lions won 29-19, Johannesburg
2014: Golden Lions won 46-8, Kimberley
2013: Golden Lions won 35-28, Johannesburg

Prediction: Golden Lions head coach Swys de Bruin said Griquas are favourites for this clash and we think he is right. Griquas will edge it by five points.

Teams:

Griquas: 15 Adriaan Coertzen (captain), 14 Ederies Arendse, 13 Tertius Kruger, 12 Johnathan Francke, 11 Koch Marx, 10 Andre Swarts, 9 Christiaan Meyer, 8 De Wet Kruger, 7 Sias Koen, 6 Wendal Wehr, 5 Pieter Janse van Vuren, 4 Shaun Mcdonald, 3 Nicolaas Oosthuizen, 2 Abraham le Roux, 1 Liam Hendricks.
Replacements: 16 Wilmar Arnoldi, 17 Stephan Kotze, 18 Sintu Manjezi, 19 Kevin Kaba, 20 Renier Botha, 21 George Whitehead, 22 Eric Zana.

Golden Lions: 15 Jaco van der Walt, 14 Sylvian Mahuza, 13 Rohan Janse van Rensburg, 12 Harold Vorster, 11 Anthony Volmink, 10 Ashlon Davids, 9 Marco Jansen van Vuren, 8 Ryan Kankowski, 7 Cyle Brink, 6 Albertus Smith, 5 Marvin Orie, 4 Rhyno Herbst, 3 Jacobie Adriaanse, 2 Robbie Coetzee, 1 Jacques van Rooyen (captain).
Replacements: 16 Pieter Jansen, 17 Sithembiso Sithole, 18 Johannes Jonker, 19 Robert Kruger, 20 Fabian Booysen, 21 Branco du Preez, 22 Aphiwe Dyantyi.

Saturday, September 9:

Western Province v Free State Cheetahs
(Newlands, Cape Town - Kick-off: 15.00, 13.00 GMT)

In Cape Town, Western Province and the Free State Cheetahs will look to get their campaigns back on track after defeats last week, while the hosts will have the added incentive of earning their first win in four matches against the Bloemfontein side. 

The Capetonians, however, won three of their last four matches at Newlands prior to their home defeat last season, which will inspire them.
 
Western Province prop Alistair Vermaak will earn his 50th cap as he returns to the starting line-up in one of five changes, which also sees Jano Vermaak back from Springbok duty and BlitzBok star Werner Kok included in the starting team. 

The Free State Cheetahs, in turn, made only two changes to their starting XV with Ernst Stapelberg named at flyhalf and Marco Mason at fullback.

Despite the Cheetahs fielding an under-strength side for the fixture due to Pro14 commitments, Province captain Chris van Zyl believes it will be a mistake to take them lightly. 

"One thing that you must remember is that a lot of those guys believe that they should be playing overseas [for Cheetahs in Pro14] and they are obviously trying to prove themselves, so as much as they might not be the number ones, they will believe that and that is always a dangerous thing. 

"You've got these guys that are hungry to impress and they want to make something special. They will see themselves as the underdog and that is always dangerous,' said Van Zyl.

Meanwhile, Free State Cheetahs coach Daan Human is excited to see new flyhalf Stapelberg running things at Newlands on Saturday.

"I'm glad you know his name because he is going to be good on Saturday," said Human in response to a reporter’s question in Bloemfontein.

"Ernst [Stapelberg] has a lot of confidence. He is in the team and he looks like he has been training with the team for the last 10 months. He just stepped in and he is running the show there at the back with the backline. I am very glad that he is in the side.

"I think Ryno Eksteen [who is on the bench] will add some value as well for the team when it opens up because he is an attacking flyhalf and I think he has got a lot of qualities as well."

Recent results:
2017: Free State Cheetahs won 30-17, Bloemfontein
2016: Free State Cheetahs won 32-25, Cape Town
2015: Free State Cheetahs won 28-21, Bloemfontein
2015: Western Province won 9-3, Cape Town
2014: Western Province won 34-29, Bloemfontein

Prediction: Western Province will get back to winning ways with big victory by 20 points or more.  

Teams:

Western Province: 15 Craig Barry, 14 Werner Kok, 13 EW Viljoen, 12 Huw Jones, 11 Ruhan Nel, 10 Damian Willemse, 9 Jano Vermaak, 8 Nizaam Carr, 7 Cobus Wiese, 6 Jaco Coetzee, 5 John Schickerling, 4 Chris van Zyl (captain), 3 Wilco Louw, 2 Ramone Samuels, 1 Alistair Vermaak.
Replacements: 16 Chad Solomon, 17 Michael Kumbirai, 18 Sikhumbuzo Notshe, 19 Kobus van Dyk, 20 Dewaldt Duvenage, 21 Robert du Preez, 22 Dan Kriel.

Free State Cheetahs: 15 Marco Mason, 14 Carel Jan Coetzee, 13 Jacobus Jonker, 12 Steph Janse van Rensburg, 11 Luther Obi, 10 Ernst Stapelberg, 9 Juan-Philip Smith, 8 Jasper Wiese, 7 Chris Dry (captain), 6 Junior Pokomela, 5 Dennis Visser, 4 Nicolaas Immelman, 3 Luan de Bruin, 2 Reinach Venter, 1 Johan Kotze.
Replacements: 16 Marnus van der Merwe, 17 Andrew Kuhn, 18 Siba Qoma, 19 Daniel Maartens, 20 Fifi Rampeta, 21 Dian Badenhorst, 22 Ryno Eksteen.

Sharks extend winning run

Fri, 08 Sep 2017 15:00

MATCH REPORT: The Sharks extended their winning run to seven matches when they edged the Pumas 27-25 in an exciting match in Nelspruit on Friday.

Rhyno Smith's try four minutes from time proved to be the difference as the Sharks also walked away with a bonus-point for scoring four tries in total.

The Pumas walked away with a valuable losing bonus point. 

The Pumas were first to open their account in the fourth minute when wing Ruwellyn Isbell scored a try in the corner.

Isbell's try was set up after some powerful play from No.8 Willie Engelbrecht who crashed through a few defenders in the Sharks' 22 from a line-out before the ball went wide. Justin van Staden could not convert the try from a tight angle.

The Pumas then went further in front four minutes later when flyhalf Kobus Marais slotted a penalty after some ill-discipline from the Sharks.

The Sharks finally got their first points of the game when Curwin Bosch converted a penalty to reduce the deficit to five points in the 16th minute.

The visitors should have been just two points behind two minutes later, but Bosch missed a straightforward penalty inside the Pumas' 22.

However, the young flyhalf made up for that embarrassing error when he set-up a try for wing Sibusiso Nkosi out wide.

After a strong scrum and a few phases near the Pumas' tryline, Bosch sent a long pass to Nkosi who ran in for his side's first try. Bosch hit the upright with the conversion. 

Robert du Preez's side started to grow with confidence with ball in hand as the half went on and they were soon over the tryline again with another bit of magic.

Sharks captain Ruan Botha showed his pedigree with ball in hand when he burst through the Pumas defence and evaded a few defenders in the Pumas' 22 before passing to Jeremy Ward who went over for the try. Bosch stepped up to convert the score for a seven-point lead.

The Pumas were then given a boost four minutes before half-time when Sharks hooker Armand van der Merwe was yellow carded for cynical play near his own tryline.

The Sharks were then reduced to 13 men just before the break when Tyler Paul was yellow carded for a grass-cutter tackle while his side were camped in the 22.

Despite having a big numerical advantage, the Pumas squandered an opportunity to get points before half-time with the Durban side holding a seven-point lead at the break.  

The home side started the second half like me possessed and they got themselves back level with the Sharks six minutes into the half when wing Jean-Paul Lewis was put into space inside the Sharks' 22 to run in for his side's second try, which Marais converted.

The Pumas then found themselves in front minutes later when centre and captain Hennie Skorbinski ran in for a try after some great work from teammate Chris Cloete. Marais added the extras with the conversion to give his side a seven-point lead.

The game restarted with a Pumas penalty after some foul play in the lead up to Skorbinski's try and Marais landed a 50-metre kick to extend his side's lead to 10 points.

Just when it looked like the Pumas were on course for a comfortable win, the Sharks hit back when replacement Wian Vosloo went over for over for a try after a powerful driving maul in the Pumas 22. Garth April converted the try to reduce the deficit to just three points.

The Sharks then silenced the home fans in the 76th minute when April magically put replacement Smith into space out wide to score the winning try. 

The Pumas went one final attack in the dying minutes, but they failed to find in their attempt to find a winning score. 

Man of the match: Lukhanyo Am was strong in defence for the Sharks, while Thembelani Bholi gave his all in a losing cause for the Pumas. However, the award goes to Pumas flank Chris Cloete for his physical and effective performance in open play.
