Reading through this thread was quite enjoyable. You could see the hope coming alive for the sharks, their SR team giving them hope that they will finally kick into overdrive and put these WP pretenders in their place....followed by a 50 point humiliation.

Just in case anyone missed it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7imdB3ub22k

Watching Sergeal round Bosch like a parked car was quite entertaining as well. Leyds playing good rugby at 15 as well.

Well, the sharks boys were taking a big risk in mouthing of before the game, even if they were only playing WP C. I think they will be much more circumspect in the future.

Was sad to see the likes of Akker/Thomas taking on the ref. Was thinking if he hakkel also when he complains like that?

So there is no CC this weekend. Pretty sure the Bulls will play Pollard & kie. WP will also have some of their players back.

It's been mentioned but there is something wrong with the culture there. Arrogance.

It's not a new thing though, even at school inter-provincial times, the Natal okes always were the cocky ones. It shows on here as well, with the exception of a few good eggs.

CHARACTER KEY FOR DHL WP

DHL Western Province Head Coach John Dobson highlighted his team’s character as a key factor in their unbeaten run in the Currie Cup this season.

The defending champions beat the Cell C Sharks 50-28 at DHL Newlands on Saturday, to head into the final round of the league phase of the competition as the only unbeaten team with five wins from five games.

That result saw them secure a home semifinal, with just two log points required in their match against Vodacom Blue Bulls at Loftus Versfeld on Saturday, October 13 to seal top spot heading into the play-offs.

While they scored seven tries in the end against the Cell C Sharks, Dobson was encouraged by the character they showed to close the game out in the second half.

“It was a very good Sharks side with lots of Test experience, so for us to score 50 points against them is pretty special.

“The way we clawed our way back to score three tries like that speaks volume for our character,” he said.

Although he was happy with the win, Dobson believes that his side can still improve as the season progresses.

“There are three or four things that we can obviously fix and get better, which gives me much excitement because we are coming off 50 point wins every week.

“There are just a few technical things and if we get those right then we will really be a good side,” he said.

DHL Western Province captain Chris van Zyl pinpointed a lack of discipline as the biggest issue for his side.

“Discipline let us down, our goal was less than eight penalties in the match and we had nine in the first half,” he said.

Dobson was pleased with his team’s ability to put the opposition under pressure through their tempo and the commitment they showed on defence.

“What I am so chuffed about is the way this team scores so many points so quickly, which takes a lot of energy.

“I was really happy with the way we pushed the tempo, at one stage in the first half the Sharks were hanging their heads, that is why it was such a pity about the discipline.

“One thing we have had all season, which shows the character of the team, is that our scramble defence has been brilliant. There were probably one or two small detail things where we could have been better in our defence,” he added.

You genuinely find that disgusting? Weird.

Mate, its WP vs EP, that's pretty damn close to the Currie Cup. And it's not worth a thread on its own.

What's your thought on the absolute thuggery in that video? Both players to blame, or are WP importing violent players from Cameroon ;)

Well, there were 3 freds yesterday about it...

My take : Before the tackle was complete, the wing threw a punch at the fullback. Kept going at the fullback, who showed remarkable restraint. I would ban the winger for a long time.

Your player is a chickenrunner from Cameroon, he doesn't know how to spell apartheid.
In fact, he just doesn't know how to spell ...

Not sure what you're getting at? It's only "sweet" when the other fans run their mouths the entire time, like you did. ;)

Well, the Sharks shouldn't get much of a boost considering they only have one Bok anyway. Their SR team is already playing.

There’s obviously not much that WP have done wrong until now, and they can also expect to benefit from the addition of the likes of Wilco Louw, Bongi Mbonambi, Sikhumbuzo Notshe and Damian Willemse, who haven’t racked up too much game time while on Springbok duty, while a player like Damian de Allende could also come into the mix.

The current WP side (without their Boks) have of course built incredible momentum over the last few weeks, but seeing that the Boks’ fringe players will have this weekend to settle in before they head into the semi-finals, the add-ons can hardly be seen as a disruption in terms of continuity. After all, they are Bok players, and they should add even more firepower going into the semis. Sure, WP won’t be the only team welcoming back international personnel, but they sure have the most to gain from it.

And that, in addition to what we’ve seen from the blue and white hoops this season, will make WP an even bigger rugby mountain to move en route to the final.

I really hope we don't see Phillips in SR next year.
Quote:
Western Province scrumhalf Herschel Jantjies says he is enjoying every minute of his first season of Currie Cup rugby. DYLAN JACK reports.
A Province boy through and through, Jantjies came through the WP Academy, playing at U19, U21 and Rugby Challenge levels for the side.
The 21-year-old product of Paul Roos says the style of rugby that Province has played this year has suited him as he looks to make the step to senior professional rugby.
‘It has been a privilege to be involved in my first Currie Cup season,’ Jantjies said. ‘We are a team that wants to play and throw the ball around a bit. It is always nice to play with the ball and score good tries.
‘A team that attacks is usually a team that gets lucky. I enjoy that rugby especially if I can run good support lines. I have a lot to learn but I am enjoying it.’
Jantjies is one of three younger scrumhalves in the Province squad along with Paul de Wet and Justin Phillips, but he says that all three have ambitions for a place in the Stormers’ Super Rugby squad.
‘It is my goal to play Super Rugby. We have great competition here, any one of the other guys can play. It all depends on what the coaches want on the day. All three of us will push each other hard for that starting spot.’
Jantjies added that having an older head in veteran Jano Vermaak has helped the younger scrumhalves to jump to Currie Cup rugby.
‘It is awesome. I have learned a lot from Jano in such a short space of time. It is great having a guy like him in the squad for the energy and the wisdom that he brings helps a lot. You can go to him any time and ask him something. He is always willing to help you.’

They should not allow Springbok players to play CC. They should be rested. Players that worked hard and did well get replaced for the final games because teams get to pick Boks. Simular to teams who have a lot of Boks away and struggle until their Bok players return and suddenly blow away teams that beat them in the earlier matches.

I'm in favor of these guys being involved for WP: Wilco Louw, Bongi Mbonambi, Sikhumbuzo Notshe and Damian Willemse

They had little to no game time with the Boks and some have already played a CC game or two. DDA is another who has already played a game but might be injured anyway.

Rest Eben, Kolisi, PSDT, etc.

Agreed. He's an agro, useless twat. Should probably move to Durban. They can give us Kobus van Wyk back in return.

Hell, no thanks. He's even more aggro/arrogant...can stay right where he is. But yes on sending Phillips packing.

there are Boks that need gametime. Think Rassie manage this better then others.

Herschel Jantjies and Damian Willemse played together for Paul Roos. I rate Herschell high. He, ll get there.

I Jantjies steps up, we need someone to at 9 for us. Also really looking forward to seeing Willemse develop further. I hope his touch on Saturday is a glimpse of things to come. :thumbup:

I look forward to a "what could be" every bloody year with the Stormers but if we manage to keep our players healthy we'll have some real quality in a number of positions.

But then there's Fleck.

No. We should do what's best for the Boks. Rest players who played a lot and give game time to the players who benched.


It's not rocket science.

Sponsors. And crowds. And money money money.

Cheaper to play a Bok into the ground than make excuses to the sponsors, why he does not play And rent another player in his place.

Broken Bok is Rassie's problem ...
