Sharks juniors in semi-final action

Both of the Sharks junior sides narrowly missed out on home semi-finals – each finishing third in their respective competitions. The sides will have contrasting expectations going into this weekend’s semi-finals.

Deon Kayser’s under 19 side has punched well above its weight for most of the competition, but was forced to pay the price for a lacklustre home showing which resulted in defeat against the Leoaprds a few weeks back. Despite a 38-0 thrashing of Western Province at the weekend, they could not make up enough ground on the Lions, whose single-point log lead sees them host tomorrow’s semi-final. With a settled side that has won at Ellis Park recently, the Sharks under captain Chris de Beer will be brimming with confidence for this game and it would be a great reward for a strong campaign should they progress to the final, where they would be expected to face the Blue Bulls.

The Sharks under 21s, unfortunately, shot themselves in the foot last week by conceding a heavy defeat to the log-leading Western Province side. They picked up a single bonus point from the match for scoring four tries, but had they managed to pick up another, it would be them, rather than the Blue Bulls, hosting Saturday’s knock-out. With a settled side and bouyed by a win in Pretoria just a fortnight ago, the Sharks under 21s would fancy their chances – however, the Bulls exit from the Currie Cup proper sees a slew of young stars, including a capped Springbok in Jan Serfontein, set to start for their under 21s this weekend. Paul Willemse, Jacques du Plessis and Handre Pollard are among some of the other big names the Sharks will face this weekend and while we wish the boys all the best, it’s hard to see them matching the Bulls outfit likely to be named.
