  • -5
Almost time for kick off as the teams go through their last match preparations . This should be a cracking match
  • -8
For Blue Bulls: Fullback Warrick Gelant has shone in the league phase and he is the current leading try-scorer. Captain and centre Burger Odendaal is an abrasive player in open player, while flyhalf Marnitz Boshoff has the ability to kick the Bulls to victory in Durban. Up front, loose forward Marco van Staden has been a revelation, while prop Pierre Schoeman has a great all-round game.
  • -10
For Sharks: Wing Sibusiso Nkosi is lethal out wide with his pace and power and centre Lukhanyo Am knows how to crack open defences in the midfield. Curwin Bosch will also have to direct play from the flyhalf channel. In the pack, the Du Preez brothers, Jean-Luc and Daniel, will be a handful when they get going with ball in hand and prop Thomas du Toit is one of the best in the business in the scrums in South Africa.
  • -15
The Blue Bulls named the same starting team that defeated the Pumas to book their place in the semifinal. However, lock Aston Fortuin faces a late fitness test after picking up an injury last week. Should he be ruled out, Jannes Kirsten will start at lock with Eli Snyman on the bench, but should Fortuin be passed fit, Kirsten will start on the bench.
  • -20
The Sharks made three personnel changes to their starting team – flank Jean-Luc du Preez, scrumhalf Louis Schreuder and wing Jacobus van Wyk replace Jacques Vermeulen, Michael Claassens and Odwa Ndungane respectively, all three of whom were included on the replacements bench alongside Armand van der Merwe.
  • -25
The clash today will be the first time in five seasons that the Sharks and the Bulls meet in a semi-final. Fuelling the hosts' motivation, they won both encounters between the sides in the pool stages, while they have only gone down once against the Pretoria outfit at home in the competition in more than a decade – since 2006.

PREVIEW: Sharks v Blue Bulls

Fri, 20 Oct 2017 04:52

CURRIE CUP SEMIFINAL: The clash in Durban is the KwaZulu-Natalians' first appearance in a Currie Cup knock-out match since 2014 and it's also the first time the Sharks and Blue Bulls meet in the semifinal in five seasons.

Fuelling the hosts' motivation, they won both encounters between the sides in the pool stages, while they have only gone down once against the Pretoria outfit at home in the competition in more than a decade – since 2006.
 
The visitors, meanwhile, will draw inspiration from the fact that the Sharks' winning margins against them in the competition were by only eight and 13 points respectively, while most of their defeats in Durban have also been by less than 10 points. 

Adding to this, they have been fighting for their survival in their competition for several weeks and will be up for the challenge.
 
The Sharks made three personnel changes to their starting team – flank Jean-Luc du Preez, scrumhalf Louis Schreuder and wing Jacobus van Wyk replace Jacques Vermeulen, Michael Claassens and Odwa Ndungane respectively, all three of whom were included on the replacements bench alongside Armand van der Merwe.
 
The Blue Bulls named the same starting team that defeated the Pumas to book their place in the semifinal. 

However, lock Aston Fortuin faces a late fitness test after picking up an injury last week. Should he be ruled out, Jannes Kirsten will start at lock with Eli Snyman on the bench, but should Fortuin be passed fit, Kirsten will start on the bench.

Sharks scrumhalf Michael Claassens says his team will have the personnel to nullify the Blue Bulls' danger men like Warrick Gelant and Travis Ismaiel on Saturday.

"They [Bulls] are full of confidence, they’re playing well and in their last match [against the Pumas], scored a lot of tries," he explains. 

"But defence has been our strong point this season and we have to make sure we're on top of that and work together as a team to neutralise their danger men and not give them too many easy opportunities to score points."

Meanwhile, Blue Bulls coach John Mitchell believes continuity in selection is a big advantage for his team. 

"I think cohesion is really important and the only way you can get that is through continuity of players," said Mitchell.

"It gives the players confidence as well, it brings familiarisation. I think everyone becomes a lot more intuitive as a result of the same people playing week after week.

"In saying that they also realise that there are some guys pushing hard from behind now which is starting to create some healthy competition, which is always good in a playing group."

Players to watch:

For Sharks: Wing Sibusiso Nkosi is lethal out wide with his pace and power and centre Lukhanyo Am knows how to crack open defences in the midfield. Curwin Bosch will also have to direct play from the flyhalf channel. In the pack, the Du Preez brothers, Jean-Luc and Daniel, will be a handful when they get going with ball in hand and prop Thomas du Toit is one of the best in the business in the scrums in South Africa.

For Blue Bulls: Fullback Warrick Gelant has shone in the league phase and he is the current leading try-scorer. Captain and centre Burger Odendaal is an abrasive player in open player, while flyhalf Marnitz Boshoff has the ability to kick the Bulls to victory in Durban. Up front, loose forward Marco van Staden has been a revelation, while prop Pierre Schoeman has a great all-round game.

Head to head: Flyhalves Curwin Bosch and Marnitz Boshoff are two very different players and both will have an important job to try and direct play. In the midfield, Lukhanyo Am and Burger Odendaal have enjoyed great seasons and both players have the ability to get their sides over the gain line. There will also be an important battle amongst the two loose forward trios and on paper, it looks like the Sharks have more X-factor. 

Recent results:
2017: Sharks won 18-5, Durban
2017: Sharks won 28-20, Pretoria
2016: Sharks won 26-19, Durban
2015: Blue Bulls won 17-13, Durban
2014: Sharks won 26-15, Pretoria

Prediction: The Blue Bulls have looked a lot better on the field recently and they got dangerous ball runners across the park to trouble the Sharks. However, the Durban side has been the most consistent team in the competition and they have home ground advantage as well. The Sharks will win by six points.

Teams:

Sharks: 15 Garth April, 14 Jacobus van Wyk, 13 Lukhanyo Am, 12 Marius Louw, 11 Sibusiso Nkosi, 10 Curwin Bosch, 9 Louis Schreuder, 8 Daniel du Preez, 7 Jean-Luc du Preez, 6 Keegan Daniel, 5 Ruan Botha (captain), 4 Tyler Paul, 3 Ross Geldenhuys, 2 Franco Marais, 1 Thomas du Toit.        
Replacements: 16 Armand van der Merwe, 17 Juan Schoeman, 18 John-Hubert Meyer, 19 Jean Droste, 20 Jacques Vermeulen, 21 Michael Claassens, 22 Tristan Blewett, 23 Odwa Ndungane.

Blue Bulls: 15 Warrick Gelant, 14 Travis Ismaiel, 13 Burger Odendaal (captain), 12 John Jackson, 11 Johnny Kotze, 10 Marnitz Boshoff, 9 Ivan van Zyl, 8 Nic de Jager, 7 Tim Agaba, 6 Marco van Staden, 5 Aston Fortuin/Jannes Kirsten, 4 Ruben van Heerden, 3 Conraad van Vuuren, 2 Edgar Marutlulle, 1 Pierre Schoeman.
Replacement: 16 Johan Grobbelaar, 17 Lizo Gqoboka, 18 Jannes Kirsten/Eli Snyman, 19 Jano Venter, 20 Piet van Zyl, 21 Tony Jantjies, 22 Duncan Matthews, 23 John-Roy Jenkinson.

Date: Saturday, October 21
Venue: Kings Park, Durban
Kick-off: 14.30 (12.30 GMT)

Sharks see off plucky Bulls

Sat, 21 Oct 2017 12:00

MATCH REPORT: The Sharks advanced to the 2017 Currie Cup Final after they beat the Blue Bulls 37-27 in their Currie Cup semifinal clash in Durban on Saturday.

The home side outscored their opponents by four tries to three in an open and entertaining clash at Kings Park.

Flyhalf Curwin Bosch was also in fine form contributing 17 points with the boot, which included a well-taken drop goal.

The Sharks will now contest their first Currie Cup Final since 2013 against either Western Province or the Golden Lions. 

The Sharks were camped inside the Bulls' 22 in the opening minutes of the game and they eventually opened the scoring when Lukhanyo Am was put into space from a scrum five metres from the visitors' tryline. Curwin Bosch converted the try for a 7-0 lead after four minutes.

The home side then increased their lead a few minutes later when wing Jacobus van Wyk broke through the Bulls' defence from a line-out and sprinted in under the polls for his team's second try, which Bosch converted as well.

The Bulls needed a big response to get back in the game and they did exactly that when prop Pierre Schoeman stretched over for a try in the 11th minute after the Bulls had a rare attacking foray in the Sharks' 22. Marnitz Boshoff added the extras with conversion to reduce the deficit to seven points.

Boshoff then brought the Bulls closer in the 20th minute when he converted a penalty into three points after some ill-discipline from the Sharks.

However, the visitors suffered a setback moments later when loose forward Tim Agaba was yellow carded for cynical play inside his own half.

Despite playing with 14 men, the Bulls were the next to score when Boshoff slotted a penalty after some sustained pressure deep inside the Sharks' half. 

The Bulls' hard work to get back into the game was then undone when they gifted the Sharks a try in the 30th minute.

Bulls centre John Jackson failed to collect a poor ball from a scrum five metres from his own tryline with Sharks scrumhalf Louis Schreuder collecting the loose ball to go over for the score. Bosch added the extra two points with the conversion.  

The Sharks were nearly over again in the 36th minute with prop Thomas du Toit losing the ball over the tryline after some great interplay between the forwards in the Bulls' 22. 

The home side did eventually get their fourth try before half-time when captain Ruan Botha charged down Ivan van Zyl's box kick in the Bulls' half before collecting and sprinting in for the score, which Bosch converted.

At half-time, the Sharks were looking comfortable with a 28-13 lead.

The Bulls needed to score first in the second half to keep their hopes alive and that is what they did when the Sharks failed to secure possession at the restart before Bulls scrumhalf Ivan van Zyl capitalised and evaded a few defenders to go over for a converted try.

The visitors continued to dominate play in the opening 15 minutes of the second half before Bosch gave the Sharks some much-need breathing space with a three-pointer in the 55th minute.

However, the Bulls were not going to lie down after that score and they hit back in the 60th minute when captain Burger Odendaal crashed over for a try after his side held onto possession for a number of phases in the Sharks half. Boshoff converted the try and the Bulls were only four points behind with 20 minutes to play. 

The Sharks looked to get some more breathing space after Boshoff's penalty and they were rewarded when Bosch landed a superb drop goal in the 65th minute to extend his side's lead to seven points. 

That lead soon became 10 points when Bosch landed another penalty in the 69th minute. 

The Bulls tried to fight their way back into it, but they couldn't find a way past the Sharks' defence in the final 10 minutes.

Man of the match: Flyhalf Curwin Bosch had a solid game in the flyhalf channel, while loose forwards Jean-Luc and Daniel du Preez were physically dominant on most occasions. However, the award goes to Sharks captain Ruan Botha, who certainly led by example with a strong all-round game and he scored a fantastic try as well. 

The scorers:

For Sharks:
Tries: Am, Van Wyk, Schreuder, Botha
Cons: Bosch 4
Pens: Bosch 2
DG: Bosch

For Blue Bulls:
Tries: Schoeman, I van Zyl, Odendaal
