Sharks snatch win from WP

2012-08-11 21:28

Cape Town - The Sharks snatched a dramatic 25-23 victory over Western Province in a Currie Cup match at Newlands on Saturday evening.

In the final 15 minutes the scoreline seesawed as the lead changed hands three times but Province failed to capitalise on the scoring chances that came their way and paid the price.

Province enjoyed both a territorial advantage and a major share of possession at the outset and for the opening 10 minutes they had a vice-like grip on the game. Desperate to lay their hands on the ball, the Sharks infringed on several fronts to concede penalties, two of which were goaled by fullback Joe Pietersen for a 6-0 lead.

In the ensuing minutes, there was some more fiery play from the home side, with scrumhalf Dewaldt Duvenage leading the way with a fine break to transfer play from his own 10-metre line to the Sharks 22-metre line. A line-out moments later provided the platform for Province to set off on a driving maul which was rounded off with a converted Tiaan Liebenberg try (13-0).

About midway through the first half, the Sharks managed to impose themselves on the game and then lost initiative after they ruck off their own ball in front of the Province posts. The Sharks did, however, squeeze out some advantage for their efforts when centre Meyer Bosman goaled a penalty 10 minutes ahead of the break, for a 13-3 halftime scoreline.

When the teams returned the Sharks turned the match on its head with two tries in the first four minutes of play. First centre Paul Jordaan tip-toed his way past the Province defence after he set off from the halfway line, and then the hooker ran in unchallenged from 20 metres out. Bosman converted the second touchdown to give the Sharks the lead for the first time in the match (15-13).

Pietersen goaled a 54th minute penalty to regain the lead (16-15) for Province, but almost as soon as play was restarted Burden was in for his second converted try and the lead changed hands once again (22-16). With 12 minutes left, the Sharks were reduced to 14 when flank Jacques Botes was yellow-carded for foul play off the ball.

This was the cue for Province to chase down the 6-point deficit and again a 5-metre line-out proved a handy launch pad as flanker Deon Fourie crashed over. Pietersen goaled the angled kick to give Province the lead again 23-22, eight minutes from the end.

The home crowd's roar celebrating the lead was silenced a minute later when Sharks flyhalf Riaan Viljoen snapped over what proved to be a matchwinning drop-goal a minute later (25-23).

Pietersen had a chance to snatch the game for Province four minutes from the end but he fluffed a goalable penalty from 35 metres out.

Scorers:

Western Province: Tries: Tiaan Liebenberg, Deon Fourie.

Conversions: Joe Pietersen (2). Penalties: Joe Pietersen (3).

Sharks: Tries: Paul Jordaan, Craig Burden (2). Conversions: Meyer Bosman (2). Penalties: Meyer Bosman. Drop-goal: Riaan Viljoen. Sapa

      visser.isak - August 11, 2012 at 19:55 Report commentComments Policy Well done Lions. Sorry Griquas. Nou gaan ons gou die Saaaaaaarks TRAP!!!!!!!

      francois.smith.7 - 2012-08-12 04:38

      Priesterb, the definition of choke is to loose a knock out game (ie one that you have to win to stay in the competition) when you have won all the previous ones, as a side comment. As for the WP fans, your biggest problem is that you accept mediocre performances like this by packing Newlands to the brim. As long as that is going to happen, nothing will be done to AC who cannot coach a team to score tries. I think we, all the WP fans, must simply say that if by 4 Sept WP has not scored 4 tries in at TWO matches and won them both, we will not go to Newlands or watch the game on TV. The administrators cannot run the game and AC cannot coach the team. Hit them where it hurts most - the pocket. In two years time the BB will have the strongest backline in SA with all players from WP, coached by two ex WP players- unbelievable. To AC, what is the excuse this time? It is probably good WP has lost, now you know there is something wrong. How long are you going to find excuses for not winning a cup in a knock out competition, before you look to yourself in the mirror and say: "I dont have what it takes" and then resign?

      spyker.oflanagan - 2012-08-12 09:05

      Francois, you lot are too desperate to stay away from Newlands.

Te veel currie bekers. Bullle enigste span wat dit nog kon doen. Wp dalk di meeste currie bekers. Kyk wanneer di Unie gestig is. Bulle di meeste slap vis!! Groete van Pta !

      Sparkie- Are you related to Isak.Visser ?

      1amAlan - 2012-08-12 11:47

      Yup Sparkie, you may be right, but I'm afraid history is being rewritten, and we can't blame the ref for this one. WTF do they have to keep kicking the ball away? When they interviewed Allister at half time and he said his instruction were to rather slow the ball down, I thought, oh cr@p, here we go doing the Stormers thing again. I'm afraid that if this is going to be the mindset from here on in, we can forget about winning any trophies ever again. If it hadn't been for Jacques Botes stupidity in getting himself sin binned, I think the Sharks would have got their bonus point. The only telling sting in the WP tail is that rolling mall, which to me is more obstruction than anything else. We better hope that they don't outlaw it anytime soon because without it this team is going to score jack.

      skinfaxi.mordor - 2012-08-11 23:03

      Cobus Reinach had an absolutely brilliant game. Seriously talented scrumhalf very similar in style to Kocky. He really deserved a try because there was no ways that he was offside. Still brilliant defence by the Stormers player Lourens van der Merwe who prevented all but the long range tries which he could do nothing about.

      clive.herbst.5 - 2012-08-12 00:16

      Stormers can't finish off because they don't win by beating other teams they win by scraping. Eventually ur luck runs out and u get beaten. And wp losing players what a joke, no team in sa gets hit as badly as the cheetas every single season in that regard.

  • brendon.ribeiro.338 - 2012-08-11 23:45

    WP I hope this shows you why aplon and pietersen were not selected they are no where near international standards and in all honesty neither is dejong jordaan should have been selected instead.if I was a wp supporter I'd be very worried habana is aging and so is jdv also burgers best days are behind him aswell soon you going to have no boks left in CT.the worst thing about all this is I don't see any genuine class coming from the younger players and pls tell me why is deon your captain what is the coaching staff thinking WP you are in a hole and you need to get out soon because its getting deeper

      clive.herbst.5 - 2012-08-11 23:49

      I agree with jordaan he is fantastic!!! And wp isn't keeping their younger stars like pollard and the senior players are ageing and I can't stand fourie I mean he's a youngster but how can you be so windgat it will bring you nowhere be humble and play well and people will notice you I mean he's a disgrace allways looking for fights and like throwing the ball into prinsloo's face and when he took on bismark in the semi's hahahahaahahaha so funny

    I am reaaly getting fed-up with all the negative comments! Last time I checked it was only the first game of the Currie Cup, people! And like you many of you always say, the Cup is not won in the first game!!! When WP starts off strongly, everybody says that it is not good! When they lose their first game, they immediately get written off and are labelled again. Make up your minds! Nobody is dissing the Cheetahs or the Griquas and their scores were far worse than that in the WP - Sharks game. I agree that it was not a good game by the WP, but neither was the Sharks that brilliant. It was a wet game, and that showed! Not a good game to watch. Congrats Sharks, you won! And WP lost. Period!

      spyker.oflanagan - 2012-08-12 13:35

    How pathetic was it to see those dhl girls dancing in the pouring rain?I mean, has WPRFU become so pathetically loyal to the yellow and red of dhl ? Dusgusting against the backdrop of Thursday having been Women's Day. I really think management have lost all sense of ethics. Get back to doing the right thing, you useless bunch! Start by getting back to blue and white!

    I'm a Lions fan so I couldn't be arrogant if I tried, but I love it when when Bulls and Sharks supporters call WP supporters arrogant - couldn't be more hypocritical if they tried!!! Same thing when Bulls fans say WP play boring kicking rugby. Please, the Bulls INVENTED that!! If not Lions, go Cheetahs!!

      Will you be supporting the Kings next year, since your team won't be playing Super rugby?

  • steven.chiaberta - 2012-08-12 17:33

    I'll support any SA team that doesn't play kick, chase, defend rugby, and any team that has less arrogant supporters than the Bulls and Sharks. So yeah, I'll definitely be backing the Kings. And Cheetahs and then, yip, the Stormers.

    How is it that the Sharks lose 10 players to the boks vs the Stormers 3 odd and they can still beat WP? Tsk tsk...

  • brendon.ribeiro.338 - 2012-08-12 19:19

  • steven.chiaberta - 2012-08-12 19:21

    Can't argue with that, and good on the Sharks. I just think this provincialism thing comes across more like arrogance than pride and loyalty. But you're right, Lions supporters would be the same if they were playing that well.
