Sharks feature in BaaBaas squad

3 Nov 15 15:31 by Greg Kaos (gregkaos) | 11 Comments

Patrick Lambie, Cobus Reinach, and Tendai Mtawarira have all been deservedly invited to what is looking like a very exciting Barbarians squad. With Cheika taking the coaching reins, he’s clearly gone for mix of brute force, wise heads, and raw talent all from OS, NZ and SA only. Possibly most note worthy is the reunion of Bakkies and Victor. [...]

A culture shock

3 Nov 15 10:11 by Pierre McLeod (pierre_mackie) | 41 Comments

A lot has been said about the Sharks culture or the lack there of in recent months after a dismal Super Rugby and Currie Cup season. A lot has been said about the group of players and questions asked about whether they understand the culture of Sharks Rugby. [...]

Catching up with Curwin

2 Nov 15 13:05 by Benedict Chanakira (bchanakira2) | 46 Comments

One of the best junior players to come through the ranks in the last two seasons. Curwin Bosch is a 10 who is also at home at 15. Curwin has the vision to create space for others,pace and one of the best kicking games on the junior scene. After months of waiting, Curwin has declared loyalty to the Sharks and will join the squad earlier than most under 19′s. The future of Sharks and Springbok rugby. Benedict caught up with Bosch and spoke his move to Durban and that nightmare Craven Week final. [...]

Sharks should have anticipated this chilly reception

2 Nov 15 10:52 by Rob Otto (robdylan) | 92 Comments

Based on the vast majority of the reactions I saw on Friday afternoon, the Sharks’ announcement of the Chiliboy Ralepelle signing went down like the proverbial lead balloon – yet another PR disaster at a time when they could least afford one. Sometimes, though, it’s not necessarily what you do, but rather the way that you do it, that causes a problem. [...]

Rugby World Cup Final: Australia v New Zealand

It’s the biggest match in the world and the Boks aren’t in it….Thanks Heyneke. [...]

Chilliboy signs with Sharks

The Sharks have just announced the signing of former Springbok hooker Chilliboy Ralepelle. [...]

Curwin Bosch picks Sharks

30 Oct 15 10:51 by Rob Otto (robdylan) | 77 Comments

This story has been a bit of an open secret for months now, but with a major PE-based newspaper running with a confirmation this morning, it’s as good a time as any to let the cat firmly out of the bag. SA Schools flyhalf and schoolboy rugby prodigy Curwin Bosch has opted to join the Sharks next year, rejecting offers from virtually every other major union in the process. [...]

Have a Builders Christmas, Joburg!

29 Oct 15 16:17 by Rob Otto (robdylan) | 3 Comments

Still looking for suggestions for your end-of-year company Christmas party? We suggest that you book a table or 3 at the final leg of the 2015 Builders Sports Quiz Series presented by Sun International, which is set to take place at The Maslow Hotel in Sandton, Johannesburg on December 7. [...]

Time to have your say

Someone over at Sharks HQ has clearly taken their Bob Martins this morning and is feeling especially brave. [...]

Half a ton of half appearances

29 Oct 15 09:15 by Rob Otto (robdylan) | 96 Comments

It’s perhaps fitting, in a rather sad way, that Patrick Lambie will (in all likelihood) earn his 50th Springbok cap wearing a replacements jersey. Why, after all, should this cap be any different to all the others? [...]

Minimal change as Matfield leads

28 Oct 15 19:49 by Richard Ferguson (Richard Ferguson) | 98 Comments

Heyneke Meyer may have selected his last Springbok team, and much like his 4 years to date, it has failed to generate much excitement. [...]

Another French fling for Sharks in 2016?

28 Oct 15 12:53 by Rob Otto (robdylan) | 113 Comments

According to a hasty translation of a French website, the Sharks look set to play French side Stade Toulousain in a pre-Super Rugby warmup game in February next year. [...]

Super Rugby vs Currie Cup

28 Oct 15 10:05 by Nkululeko Duma (Poisy) | 66 Comments

With talk of the once-famous Currie Cup possibly being relegated to Vodacom Cup status and running alongside the ever-expanding Super Rugby competition, I thought maybe we could look at how the Currie Cup could benefit from this change. [...]

SP Marais moving on

26 Oct 15 10:53 by Rob Otto (robdylan) | 304 Comments

Sharks fullback SP Marais confirmed via Twitter on Friday that he will be moving on from Durban after nearly three years with the team. [...]

RWC Semi-Final 1: NZ vs SA

24 Oct 15 12:00 by Richard Ferguson (Richard Ferguson) | 250 Comments

This is what World Cup Rugby is all about. Two teams facing each other in hat can only be described as a colossal match-up. It is finally here, Semi-Final 1 is upon us and the Boks have a massive match ahead of them if they are to compete for the elusive spot in the Final. [...]

Who will dominate

23 Oct 15 12:25 by Pierre McLeod (pierre_mackie) | 13 Comments

The fierce rivalry between the Springboks and the All Blacks started in 1921 in Dunedin New Zealand when the home side won 13 – 5, but little did anyone know that 94 years later these two proud nations will still be battling it out to dominate the known Rugby World over 80 minutes. [...]

The Rugby World Cup and market momentum

23 Oct 15 11:02 by Rob Otto (robdylan) | 33 Comments

As a truly global spectacle and pinnacle of the international game, there’s very little doubt that the four-yearly Rugby World Cup competition is special. Coaches and players plan international careers around World Cups, fans put their daily lives on hold while it’s in progress and as we’ve seen in 2015, the global game seems to somehow always take a step u in terms of quality whenever the eyes of the world are watching. Rugby World Cups, though, have a significant impact off the field, with major global brands using the tournament as an opportunity for maximum exposure – hoping to get a jump on their rivals. [...]
