Come on fans – fill the Tank!

Tickets for this weekend’s Currie Cup semi-final between the Sharks and the Cheetahs have gone on sale and we can’t emphasise strongly enough just how important it is for Sharks fans to ensure a good turnout at Kings Park this weekend.

There’s been a distinct lack of atmosphere at Sharks home games this Currie Cup, due in no small part to attendance that has regularly been on the low side – in fact, I’d be surprised if we’ve yet seen a crowd in excess of 20 000 attend a Currie Cup game at Kings Park this season and while I’ve heard every excuse under the sun for opting not to attend – the Sharks are playing badly, it costs too much, kick-off is too early, kick-off is too late, I need to wash my hair, etc – it’s time to put all those excuses away and come out in force to support the boys on Saturday, when they’ll need their fans most.

Let’s not forget that a home semi-final was looking distinctly off-the-cards over the last few weeks, as the rampant Cheetahs began their surge up the log. The Sharks put in the sort of performance of which their fans can be truly proud last weekend, claiming the right to be at home for the first knock-out in the process, and now it up to the fans to repay the team for that effort – by donning the black and white and showing up at the Tank in their thousands.

I’m sure I don’t need to remind anyone of what happened the lat time the Sharks faced the Cheetahs in a Currie Cup semi… that was 2009 and while Durbanites stayed away, opting to rather save their dosh for the final the following week, the Cheetahs sensed weakness and pounced, knocking the Sharks out of the competition in a half-full stadium. There will be none of that this time around, though – as the Sharks finished second in 2011, the final will take place at Coca Cola Park in Johannesburg, unless, of course, the Lions lose to Western Province in the second semi. Any Sharks supporters thinking that they can sit back this weekend and rather go to the final the week afterwards is not only delusional, but also implicitly helping to ensure that the Sharks will not be in that final anyway.

Come on guys – get out there and fill that stadium this weekend. The game kicks off at 14h30 on Saturday (plenty of time for a celebratory braai afterwards, in other words) and tickets cost R150,
