Good point. Against the Lions in SA he gave away two tries...or was it three. SBW is also a problem with the ABs because his passing skills are so poor. His hands are so big the ball is squeezed out like a pip...it could go anywhere.

But surely Moala is better suited to the physical battle that occurs around the 12 position. If the ball needs to go wide Perofeta can just skip Moala and go straight to Reiko.

The Blues still look like a very badly selected and coached team. It is time for Tana to move on; he can take Alistair Rogers with him.

Should be an interesting game. We can judge from this one how far off the pace our respective sides are

LEts see how the game goes because at any point if it is not working Tana can just send the word that Moala and Reiko should switch. I can only imagine since Moala can be a black hole getting it to Reiko means you can skip Moala and get it to the wings or FB, where as if you get it to Moala at 12, it dies with him

Looking forward to seeing the Sharks play NZ sides again, it was a bit rubbish not playing them last season. Strong squad with young players, excellent coaching team also, they will come right at some point. Probably not in this match, but Teich says they're close.

Sharks have always been strong against Kiwi opposition. Not making any bets tomorrow tho. Been shit against Australian teams. Stormers other way around. Lions good against most. This year is no different other than the Lions looking weaker

Year after year you look at the players the Blues have at their disposal and wonder how hard you have to work to consistently meld it into cumulative sh*t. :?

Blues are dumb at everything. Forwards wandering around without the slightest sense of urgency even on their own goal line.

Rieko at 12 is already a complete waste of talent.

That's not a good Blues team on paper.

This might be the weakest squad we've had.

It's also no excuse for playing so desperately poorly with 2 weeks to prepare.

Like I said, 80 minutes of pain and torture.

We're running too much too early, will have no puff in the second half.

He has stepped up his game this year, one of the few sharks who did. Keep it up and it will be difficult to play PSdT at 7 ahead of him, although PSdT has the advantage of being a lineout option

Same Sharks bummed by the Rebels who, in turn, were interred by the Canes. Kinda highlights where the Blues are in NZ.

Canes had a few seasons of similar but at least fixed it.
