What they had to say: Sharks vs EP Kings, Round 4

Hi Sharks fans. What a let down of a Bok Squad announcement. Poor Xola Ntshinga had to keep asking the ‘crowd’ to applaud the players and the whole affair was somewhat of an anti-climax. I won’t get into player selection as that’s been discussed at length elsewhere. All I will say is that I feel for Marcell Coetzee and I hope he is the first player called up when injury strikes.

In other news, congratulations to formers Sharks age group star, Nanyak Dala, formerly of Glenwood High School, for making the Canada Squad to play at his second Rugby World Cup, having featured at flank, centre and wing for Canada at the last World Cup.

Media:

“The Kings’ scrum dominance continued, with the Sharks’ inexperienced front row under serious pressure and despite being a man down they managed to stretch their lead to 13-0 from another Van Breda penalty following a vital turnover from Bholi. The Sharks turned down an opportunity to kick at goal late in the first half and it paid off as Joe Pietersen scored in the corner to finally open their account.” – rugby365.com

“The Sharks produced a strong second half performance to defeat the EP Kings 24-20 in their Absa Currie Cup Premier Division match at the Nelson Mandela Bay in Port Elizabeth on Saturday.” – news24.com

“It was a crucial win for the Sharks, who came into the game with two losses and just one win from the start of their campaign, but their poor form remains a cause for concern.” – sarugbymag.com

“In similar fashion to the clash between these sides at Kings Park a fortnight ago, the game still hung in the balance deep into the second-half but a strong final quarter from the Sharks saw them over the line. The result is the Sharks’ second victory of the season and takes them up to fifth place in the standings while the winless Kings remain second last.” – planetrugby.com

“However, the Kings never stopped fighting and a brilliant backline move saw centre Ronnie Cooke heading for the corner before a high tackle by Sibusiso Sithole stopped him just short of the tryline. That resulted in a yellow card and a penalty try, and suddenly the Kings were back in it at 24-20 with five minutes remaining. The Sharks, though, fought their way back into the Kings’ half and had two penalty chances to seal the match, but failed to take them. Finally getting their hands on the ball, the Kings launched a desperate attack from their own tryline, but it came unstuck on the halfway line with the final hooter having already blown.” – rugby15.co.za

“The Sharks beat the Kings 33-25 in Durban two weeks ago but were under the cosh in the first half in the return leg. But an undoubted tongue-lashing from coach Gary Gold at the break saw the Sharks emerge a different side in the second period. They dominated the majority of the second half to clinch a deserved victory, only their second of the season.”

Twitter:

“No 7- Bholi #EPKings is a great player”

“Awesome to see @TheSharksZA beat the #EPKings in PE. #KINvSHA”
