The Sharks have a number of reasons to be annoyed with Todd Blackadder and the Crusaders after this weekend’s poor showing, at home, which saw them lose to the Hurricanes.

The obvious one, of course, is that in losing, it allowed the Canes to keep ahead of the Sharks on the log, meaning that in order to move a clear log point ahead, the latter will now need to pick up a bonus-point win against the Bulls on Friday. Many were hoping that a good Crusaders win would knock the Hurricanes back out of the knock-out places and leave the Sharks with just the Reds to worry about. That, of course, didn’t happen and the Canes are still ahead of the Sharks and very much in the running for a play-off spot.

Perhaps more annoying, though, is the fact that the Crusaders’ slip-up has left the door open for the Bulls to grab fourth place on the log, which they duly did in thrashing the Cheetahs. If there’s one thing we know about the Bulls it’s that they don’t easily let go of an opportunity to play at home, meaning there is absolutely no chance of them easing up even slightly against the Sharks on Friday – if they do, they could end up handing fourth spot and the right to play at home, right back to the Crusaders.

In other words, the Sharks are going to have to do this one the hard way and it’s going to be war out on the Kings Park turf on Friday night.
