Ackermann: Sharks by 15!

2012-10-21 22:11

Cape Town - Golden Lions interim coach Johan Ackermann has predicted that the Sharks will easily shrug off Western Province in the Currie Cup final in Durban this coming Saturday.

Ackermann's side on Saturday lost their semi-final 21-16 at home to WP after the visitors scored a try after the hooter to sneak a win.

But Ackermann feels the Capetonians were lucky to beat his side, and cannot see them emerging victorious against the Sharks, who beat the Bulls 20-3 in their semi-final in Durban.

"I think the Sharks will win by at least 15 points," Ackermann told the Beeld website. "WP can't be that lucky two weeks in a row. Christmas only comes once a year. I think the Sharks will be too strong for WP."

The Lions dominated against their Cape rivals for large parts, but failed to use all their chances, with some indifferent goal-kicking from flyhalf Elton Jantjies proving costly for the Johannesburg-based side.

Lions skipper JC Janse van Rensburg also expects a tough outing for the Cape side.

"Home ground advantage will favour the Sharks heavily and they are hungry for success, but then WP will also be highly motivated because they last won the cup 11 years ago."

The Durbanites have dominated Allister Coetzee's side in Super Rugby and Currie Cup this year, winning the last four meetings between them.

The final at Kings Park kicks off at 17:00 on Saturday.

Sharks v WP/Stormers in 2012:

Super Rugby:

March 3: Stormers 15-12 Sharks (Newlands)
May 26: Sharks 25-20 Stormers (Kings Park)
July 28: Stormers 19-26 Sharks (Newlands)

Currie Cup:

August 11: WP 23-25 Sharks (Newlands)
September 15: Sharks 43-27 WP (Kings Park)

    The Sharks have been the form team and anyone would be smoking something if they said WP is the the favourite. But those scores have been fairly close, except the last one in September. So I believe WP can do it - no one gave them a chance against the Lions, remember. They also had the easier semi. The game between the Sharks and Bulls was a hard game. The score just look so high because Wallaby Hougaard gifted the Sharks a try and Turnstile Steyn gave his usual, shocking man of the match performance (Man of the match for the Sharks that is)

      chrisin.oz.1 - 2012-10-22 01:52

      Pink Johnny is a bit suurgat because his team is not in the final, again.

      derrick.pentz.5 - 2012-10-22 06:43

      To say that no one gave WP a chance against the Lions is stretching it a bit- the bookies had them as overwhelming favourites !

      chrisin.oz.1 - 2012-10-22 07:00

      derrick, did you read these blogs last week? According to all the pink pansie supporters from last week, we should now be preparing for a Bulls/Lions final.

    Bloujonnie, jy klink maar bietjie flouerig?! Het jou blougeit dalkies iets te doen met jou span se 'skitterende' vertoning gister? Vra maar net.

      mark.knight.14418 - 2012-10-22 01:04

      Leef jy in die verlede blou.johnny? Wanneer laas het die bulls 'n finaal of semi-finaal van enige aard geruik? 3 jaar? 4 jaar? Verfris my geheue, asb.

      mark.knight.14418 - 2012-10-22 01:07

      My gits, hoe kon ek dit vergeet? Jy's verkeerd (haha, wat 'n verrassing. Not.) Die bulls IS nie x3 super champs nie. Hulle WAS. Verlede tyd. Gister. Laas jaar. In die verlede. Maar dis al wat jy het, ne? Shame ...

      mark.knight.14418 - 2012-10-22 02:54

      Sjoe, leakie, hoe dom is jy? Nee wag, moenie dit antwoord nie, ek is haastig. Net vinnig: Die WP HET die CB 32 keer gewen. Verstaan jy dit? Die HUIDIGE CB KAMPIOENE is die Leeus en dit sak hulle wees to volgende Saterdag. Dring dit deur jou dik, benerige koppie. Saterdagmiddag sal óf die Sharks óf die WP die 2012 CB KAMPIOENE wees. Verstaan jy dit? Verstaan jy spesifiek dat die bulls NIE die 2012 CB kampioene sal wees nie. Hulle sal tot 2013 moet wag vir hulle volgende kans. En met daai wonderlike afrigters wat hulle tans het, sal hulle waarskynlik heelwat langer moet wag. Miskien langer as 11 jaar ... Wie weet? Anyway, my ou gabbatjie, ek's bly dat jy my posts so getrou volg en ek hoop rerig dat jy ietsie leer uit ons kommunikasie. Ek het nie groot verwagtinge nie, maar soos die classics sê (check daai kappie op die e! Is dit cool, of is dit cool?): Hope springs eternal in the human breast.

      leak.sadie - 2012-10-22 03:03

      Maar Mark, gaan lees weer jou vorige post, jy se dan die Bulls IS NIE 3x Super Champs nie. Kan jy dalk daai vir dokter verduidelik

      mark.knight.14418 - 2012-10-22 03:33

      Natuurlik, dok, dis baie eenvoudig vir normale mense, maar ek besef dat spesiale klas kandidate soos jy 'n meer omvattende (ai, jammer vir al die lettergrepe. Ek wil graag hê jy moet verstaan!) verduideliking (arg, alweer die lettergrepe! Asseblief vra jou psigiater (vriendelike omie met die wit jas ('n sielkundige is nie opgewasse vir jou probleme nie?)) om te verduidelik) verg. Dis hoe: is = huidig. Nou. Vb: Wie is die vinnigste man in die wereld? Usain Bolt. Wie is die S15 kampioene? Die Chiefs. Wie is die CB kampioene? Die Leeus. Verstaan jy dit? Ok, nou kom ons by "het". Jy moet nou mooi aandag gee, hoor. Dit kan net dalkies 'n bietjie gekompliseerd raak. het = verlede (in hierdie konteks (my magtag man, kry 'n blerrie verklarende woordeboek en KYK wat konteks beteken! Liewe hemel!). Ag, 'skuus man, party keer ruk my humeur handuit, veral wanneer ek met dom mense moet werk. Nie dat ek te kenne wil gee dat jy dom is nie, hoor! Geensins! Absoluut nie. Jy's after all ryk! Dis net my humeur. Ontspan. Asseblief. Haal diep asem. Tel tot tien. Waar was ons nou weer? O ja, "het = verlede tyd". Gister. Laas jaar. Terug tot by Adam. Wie WAS die vinnigste man in die wereld? Carl Lewis. Jesse Owens. Reggie Walker (Weet jy wie hy is? Gougou, onthou, google is your friend "dokter"). Daley Thompson. Ens. Wie het die meeste CB titels gewen? WP (32, tot op datum). Meeste Super rugby titels? Crusaders? Het jy dit nou? Sê net, sal graag verder help.

      chrisin.oz.1 - 2012-10-22 03:58

      Mark, jy moet nou nie die paramedic se tor van sy prop af laat blk!sem nie. Onthou in daai lee koppie van die paramedic tel WP se Curriebeker oorwinnings voor 1938 nie. Nogal toevallig dat dit die jaar is wat Noord Transvaal vir die eerste keer vir die Curriebeker kon kwalifiseer.

      mark.knight.14418 - 2012-10-22 04:47

      Chris, ek voel persoonlik seergemaak en gekrenk dat "dokter" nog nie op my post gereageer het nie! Ek het met groot moeite en omhaal van woorde hom geantwoord. En wat kry ek? Fet mooi nokol, soos my ou pel op Stellenbosch graag gesê het. Dis nie reg nie. Die minste war hy (dis nou "dokter") kon gedoen het, is om te sê "Ek stem nie saam nie." Maar nee. Geen antw nie. Dis onbeskof, hoor. Flippen onbeskof. Maak nie saak of mens 'n Svetlana in jou bed, 'n "Aston" in jou garage en 'n klippies & coke in jou vrieskas het nie - maniere is maniere! Ek hoop dat al die goeie mense op hierdie site die "dokter" sal aanvat wanneer hy terugkeer en help om hom bietjie maniere te leer. Reg is REG en verkeerd is verkeerd!

      mark.knight.14418 - 2012-10-22 05:23

      "dok", jy't geantwoord! Net toe ek eensaam begin voel! Maar wat's jou punt? Die Chiefs is die S15 kampioene. Die Lions is die CB kampioene. Dis dit. Verstaan jy dit nie? Maar weet jy wat my die meeste beïndruk? Nie? My gits, wat 'n verrassing! Maar moenie worry nie, ek sal jou vertel en alles verduidelik. Kan jy onthou dat ek vir jou gesê het dat jy o so blerrie ongelooflik voorspelbaar is? Jou arme poephol. Jou hele persona op hierdie site was gebou op jou totale verwydering van realiteit. En toe ek jou daarop aanvat, wat maak jy? Jy gaan soek statistieke op! Statistieke!! :-D Mooi, man! Kan jy meer voorspelbaar wees? Jou arme, arme pateet. Veels geluk. Die bulls het 3 super rugby titels. Die stormers het 0 (NUL!). Die bulls het 'n 33% wen-persentasie in CB finale. Die WP het 'n skamele 25%. Weet jy wat? Die Chiefs is die S15 kampioene. Die Leeus is die CB kampioene. Volgende week gaan óf die WP óf die Sharks die CB kampioene wees. Niemand weet wie in 2013 die S15 kampioene gaan wees nie, maar die slim geld is nie op die Kings of die bulls nie. Om myself te quote "Jou arme, arme pateet." Vat jou imaginere Aston, Svetlana en 'n jaar se voorraad van Viagra, Cialis of whatever (kom, beïndruk my, en sê wat die die ander een is - Leslaptril, of so iets) en vlieg (met jou eie private jet, natuurlik) na 'n afgeleë eiland en have a lot of fun. Maar jy moet seker maak dat die eiland nie tv ontvangs het nie, anders gaan jy dt nie so baie geniet as wat jy graag wil nie. Idioot.

      chrisin.oz.1 - 2012-10-22 05:30

      Dowwe paramedic: die curriebeker word al vir 124 jaar gespeel (insluitende 2012). Die WP kwalifiseer al vir 124 jaar. Dis 100%. Elke jaar. Die Bulls kon nog net 73 jaar kwalifiseer. Glad nie voor 1938 nie en ook nie 2000 nie. Dis 59%. Of te wel net drie keer elke 5 jaar.

    I'll admit to this: I support the Bulls, but then also both the Proteas and Arsenal, which is a bad combo in terms of winning tournaments. I'll take that on the chin. But the ONE thing I can bet on, is that awesome feeling when province crashes out of a tournament. Even if the Bulls don't win, seeing the Lions or Sharks win the trophy is a decent outcome as long as these Provence fans have to dig up more excuses for losing. Go sharks!

Ons het net so baie kanse vir driee op die veld gelos. As ons game bymekaar kom gaan daar moeilikheid wees vir die sharks. Ek dink tog dat hulle click op die oomblik beter as ons saam. En op tuis veld behoort hul sterker as ons te wees.

  • moses.govender.7 - 2012-10-22 07:12

    Sharks have the best all round game in SA. They can play in different conditions better than any team in the country. I was at the game in 2010 when they simply destroyed province in the final. On that occassion Province was stronger, Sharks were weaker and Lambie was two years younger. If the sharks lose on saturday it will be because they threw it away...not because WP won it!

      macziekpk - 2012-10-22 07:40

      Were you at the Super rugby final game in 2007?

      chrisin.oz.1 - 2012-10-22 07:57

      No of course not. WP never wins anything. If WP has more points it is because the other team lost, right?

  • jaco.groenewald.731 - 2012-10-22 07:16

    I have to agree with Ackermann, I cannot see the WP beating the Sharks in Durban, not if Lambie brings his game!!! The real sad thing, from a Bulls perspective, is the Sharks beat us at our own game. The supposed strength of the Bulls, kicking game and tight play, was nowhere to be seen. When MS Vermaak or Hougi kicked, it was too deep and not accurate. The Sharks on the other hand, played fantastic rugby, we (BULLS) were never in the game. I see a real uphill road for us; MS looked well out of sorts again. For the first time ever I am going to say this, Pat Lambie for Springbok flyhalf!!!! And Reinach for Springbok no9!!!

      anton.vonvielig - 2012-10-22 07:43

      Where it belongs? Jou span moet eers dit wen jou aap, toe toe, die karre wag gaan pomp daai petrol

      niel.walt - 2012-10-22 07:58

      And if it was a cheetas vs griekwas final the cc would be in bloem, silly comment really.

      macziekpk - 2012-10-22 08:16

      predicked? Are you a fluffer?

    Yep, Sharks by at least 15, wonder how a blue shark with horns will look.... :-)

  • robert.reeve.7564 - 2012-10-22 08:01

    Sour grapes Ackermann. It won't be easy, but I see in my tea-leaves WP by 3 points.

  • Louise Whittingstall Barnard - 2012-10-22 08:17

    Well the SHARKS are the favourites to win so WP all we ask of you is that you do your best, we will support you win or lose!

  • bakkies.botha.39 - 2012-10-22 08:27

  • denis.dendrinos - 2012-10-22 08:43

    It;s going to be a tough game - by 15? not so sure, but win? Definitely - they boys need and want this!

    The poor bulls got nailed by Mark Lawrence on Saturday. I wonder if he is related to the infamous and well-hated in South Africa, almost namesake, Bryce Lawrence. His performance on Saturday reminded me of the ref during the world cup for the game between the Springboks and Australia. I hate "Refby", where the ref is the main factor which determines the result. I hope Saturday's game is not like that and that the ref has a good game. Then I'll be able to watch the whole game and shout for Province. PS: I think rugby has become a stupid game - especially the scrums. Who came up with the silly "crouch, touch, pause , engage" system. I think it used to be much less complicated, and safe, when the scrum engaged from the beginning and they only started pushing once the ball was put in. Now the ref has to guess who made the scrum fall, and award a penalty for it. Ridiculous!

  • eugene.brink.9 - 2012-10-22 10:50

    Fifteen? Fifty!

  • keba.mothoagae - 2012-10-22 10:52

    Ackers, just wipe your eyes. The Lions, like the rest of South Africa, expected Province to simply implode like they do in the playoffs. Province, on the other hand, got tired of being in the same sequel to a movie with the same script. Semifinals are never over until the ref says so, no matter how well or poorly one plays. It never ceases to amaze me just how many people derive pleasure from WP/Stormers misery, whose only fault in recent years was to not deliver when it mattered the most. They did on Saturday. Accept it. Move on. Throw your lot in with Sharks this weekend. Celebrate like your team won it if the Sharks win. Cry your eyes out should Province bring back the glory days. Come back to news24 to troll us regardless of the result.

  • sgrussell87 - 2012-10-22 10:54

    any confirmation that the stadium will be sold out? Both the semi-finals were poor in attendance... is rugby (currie cup) dying out?
