What they had to say: Sharks vs Pumas, Round 5

Hi Sharks fans. I can’t say it was convincing, but a win is a win. I had some friends around for the rugby on Saturday and the one guy remarked that he’d prefer we hit rock bottom and lose, just so that there will be changes to coaches, etc. Just interesting to get an independent view.

Media:

“The Sharks showed great composure to eke out a win, but they will have to improve markedly if they are to mount a serious challenge for the title.” – news24.com

“The home side remained patient and took the ball through the phases as they worked their way up the field. Jordaan came to within inches of getting his second try of the match but quick thinking by Mjekevu saw the wing grab his brace. Pietersen made no mistake with the conversion to reduce the deficit to just two points with nine minutes remaining.” – rugby365.com

“Winger Wandile Mjekevu played an integral part in the Cell C Sharks’ 27-26 victory over the Steval Pumas in the sides’ Absa Currie Cup encounter at Growthpoint Kings Park on Saturday afternoon in Durban. Mjekevu not only contributed 10 points via two tries, but also forced a penalty late in the game to help give the Sharks the victory.” – supersport.com

“It wasn’t plain saling and the result was in the balance until its closing stages when a late penalty from Joe Pietersen clinched victory for the home side. The Sharks outscored the visitors by three tries to two as both sides showed a willingness to run the ball which made for an entertaining spectacle. The home side lost their way midway through the second half when they committed too many unforced errors – especially at the breakdowns – but they showed plenty of character to launch a fightback during the game’s latter stages.” – planetrugby.com

“The Sharks failed to show appreciation for possession in the first half, while their lineout went awry in the second stanza, but they displayed impressive character to score 10 unanswered points late in the game. In the opening round of the competition, the Pumas clinched a surprise win over the Sharks and at various times during Saturday’s encounter it looked as if they might secure a third successive win over the Durban-based side. A late drop-goal attempt from Pumas replacement Justin van Staden was charged down after the final hooter, ultimately allowing the home side to hold on for an important but unconvincing victory.” – sarugbymag.co.za

Twitter:

“#RugbyDrinkingGame Down a shot every time Andy mentions a players old school @SuperSportTV #CurrieCup #SharksVPumas”

“@JohnSmit123 if you are talking about #sharksvpumas then I agree.Do something plz.we won’t win super rugby with that kind of play”

“Esterhuizen should just take all the kicks. He’s twice the player useless Lionel Cronje is. #SSRugby #SharksVsPumas”
