Them saloon doors are a-swingin’

It’s perhaps not too early to suggest that for the Sharks to have any say in the destination of this year’s Super Rugby trophy, they’ll simply have to emerge from Saturday’s match against the Highlanders with every possible log point added to their tally.

Simply put, the Sharks have shot themselves in the foot already this year – in fact, they’ve put one into each foot – by losing home games against the Brumbies and the Cheetahs. In so doing, they’ve gone from a position of playing poorly, yet winning, to dropping games that really weren’t optional in terms of wins and now just plain have to win virtually every game they play from this point on, in order to make up the lost ground.

The reality, in fact, is not quite as bad as that; the Sharks still need to play the Bulls twice and thus have at least some chance of gaining back some ground on the conference leaders. What that probably means is that a narrow loss in Brisbane next weekend probably wouldn’t completely knock them out of contention, as long as they manage to get a point at least and then go on to get five against the Force in the final game.

All of that, though, will mean nothing if the Sharks fail to pick up a bonus point win over the struggling Highlanders this weekend. Welcome to the Last Chance Saloon, Sharks, time to show what you’re made of.
