Frans Steyn Shapin’ Up

Frans Steyn’s Toshiba Brave Lupus went down to JP Pietersen’s Panasonic Wild Nights in their semi final clash. The Wild Knights will now clash with Yamaha Júbilo in the Final on 1 February 2015, after Jubilo saw off Gary Gold’s Kobelco Steelers in the first semi-final. 

Ryan Kankowski’s Toyota Industry Shuttles ended 7th on their side of the table, they have therefore not been taking part in the play-offs, but will be involved in a promotion relegation on the 14th of February. I think we can assume Ryan will be able to return after that game.

Unfortunately it looks like Steyn and our new coach will be involved in another mini competition that teams now take part in. My Japanese isn’t that great, so it’s hard to figure out exactly when this “sub-competition” will end, but it would seem that there is still 2 rounds to be played during February  on the 8th and 15th, before another semi-final and then the final on the 22nd  and 28th. I can’t  figure out whether this means that at least JP’s Wild Nights will end their campaign after their final on the 1st of Feb, or whether the top 2 teams also take part in this sub-competition? It’s all very confusing. If anyone can make sense of that, I would love some clarity.

Something that I can definitely confirm though, is that Frans Steyn is looking in tip top shape these days. When I heard that Steyn had lost more weight and is now looking better than ever, I looked into it a little and from what I can see, it would seem our Fransie will return hungry – hopefully for some Super Rugby action too.

I’m looking forward to welcoming back Fransie, along with JP Pietersen and Ryan Kankowski for some much needed experienced reinforcements.  I’m also excited too see what Gary Gold will bring to the table. At the very least we will have all these guys back by March, after Super Rugby Round 3.

PS. Keegan Daniel’s Kubota Spears who ended 5th on their side of the table are in the same boat as Kanko’s shuttles and will be playing promotion relegation on the 14th, while it looks like Jean Deysel’s Toyota Verblitz, 4th, will play in the sub-competition with Steyn’s Brave Lupus. There’s been rumors that one of these guys might return to the Sharks for Super Rugby, but nothing has been confirm in that regard as of yet, so for now I’m assuming that was just wishful thinking.
