Stormers 'a different animal'

2012-07-24 15:17

Cape Town - Sharks coach John Plumtree says their semi-final clash against the Stormers in Cape Town will be the real deal for his team.

Since their surprise 38-28 loss to the Lions, the Sharks have notched some impressive wins - first humbling the Bulls 32-10 in Durban before beating the Cheetahs (34-15) and Reds (30-17) in convincing fashion to book their semi-final spot.

But despite the good momentum of recent weeks, Plumtree feels they’ll face their toughest challenge yet at Newlands this weekend. The Stormers are fresh from a weekend bye after they finished top of the overall Super Rugby log with an impressive 14 wins from 16 games.

“They’ve been sitting back and waiting while we’re coming back after some travel, it’s a different scenario for both teams this week, I’m sure they will have been doing a lot of preparation. We’ve built up some good momentum over the last few weeks, but we are coming up against a different animal this week, there are pros and cons for both sides," he told the Sharks website.

Plumtree also stressed that the travel factor can't be used as an excuse this weekend.

“We’ll be up for it alright, but we’ve got to be smart about our preparation this week.

“Everyone will be talking about the travel factor, but we knew we’d have to travel again if we got through our playoff. We’ve had to come back to South Africa and the players are positive, at least they can sleep in their own beds and spend time with family. It’s always nice coming home.”

The clash at Newlands kicks off at 17:05 on Saturday.

      Welcome back Saffa.............good holiday? Stormers will really need to front up against the Sharks pack! If they can get dominance up front we will win............If not, then its going to be a long day at the Office! SFL

      john.edwards.733450 - 2012-07-24 15:49

      No Frank it's easy to do that regardless .. The "rugby' the zzzztormerzzz's play makes it very very easy .

      john.edwards.733450 - 2012-07-24 15:52

      Chester don't talk about yourself in the 3rd person .

      frank.williams.100 - 2012-07-24 15:53

      So then Random I guess all that is left for you to do is switch on that playstation buddy cos that's the only way the Bulls will win the S15 this year hahahahaha!

      gerald.majola.7 - 2012-07-24 16:05

      SHARKS = LOSERS and W@NKERS

      john.edwards.733450 - 2012-07-24 16:13

      O frank no there is still a chance to LOL at the spastic zzzztormerzzz and watch teams like the Sharks and Chiefs and Saders play some good rugby which is all I'm really interested in . I support a team that's won it a couple of times and you don't so you won't get that

      tom.tardis - 2012-07-24 16:16

      frank williams pierced tongue, your surname tattooed on your stomach, average looking girlfriend comments deemed INVALID

      saffa.cat - 2012-07-24 16:24

      Howdy Jason. Yes thanks, I had a brilliant break after some hard work. Where are all the Bulls cheerleaders? Harold I know has been arrested in the States for a little firearm incident in a movie house. Old Harold, always the joker. Where are the rest?

      frank.williams.100 - 2012-07-24 16:24

      LoL that's it twat.tardis keep chirping. If that is the case then why comment tom? Jis maar julle is maar sanie suurkoek hahaha!

      jason.children - 2012-07-24 16:32

      Saffa I heard Harold escaped custody and fled North into Canada, last I heard he was looking for an Orthopedic Surgeon to alter his face......................the Bone Head!

      lionel.kemm.9 - 2012-07-24 16:32

      Helllloooooo Saffa Cat,welcome back. Most trolls are still in hiding,those that dared to venture out after they were knocked out are all supporting the Sharks but we expected that.Yesterday Sport 24 was like a morgue with all of them still drowning there sorrows on cheap brannas and diet coke.

      cape.maori - 2012-07-24 16:35

      Is Saffa Cat really back? Oh noooooooooooo

      john.comyn.18 - 2012-07-24 16:42

      Put it this way: Front row - Sharks no contest. 2nd row Stormers no contest. Backrow - even stevens (if Vermeulen plays). Backs - even stevens. To close to call - Stormers maybe! home ground advantage, no travel and 1 weeks rest.

      saffa.cat - 2012-07-24 16:45

      @Cape Maori - whatever you are peddling. I'm not buying. See you on Saturday. I will be the one box kicking every rodent I see in a Cantabrian jersey.

      saffa.cat - 2012-07-24 16:47

      @Jason and Lionel, is the Blou Tokkelos still around? Harold Bulldozer Brink wasn't looking that flash in the portfolio of pics doing the rounds after his court appearance. Orange hair, wild eyes and skinny arms waving. Pitiful. Then again, that's what having Spies as a captain does to supporters of the 'team we shall not mention". (Turns once sober individuals into raving lunatics) Ready for the semi's?

      lionel.kemm.9 - 2012-07-24 16:52

      Saffa,Tokkelos makes an appearance once in a while and usually spits out the same old dribble time and again.The sad Doc from Kanadoos is still the same,wishes he can come back to SA but nobody wants him. As for the semis,we are as ready as we can be,really looking forward to it and think we stand a great chance. Injury bogey really hit us again this year:(:( What your take on Morne Steyn poor performances this year,not gonna ask you about Spies lol

      saffa.cat - 2012-07-24 17:01

      @Lionel - Morne Steyn needs a break from rugby. He must not be selected for the Rugby championship, and should either play Currie Cup for the Bulls or take a break from the game full stop. The Bok team is no place for him to find form, and if anything, playing him when he is this mentally broken could stuff him up for good. Even after a break though, I still don't think he is the man to take us anywhere but backwards. Give Lambie a shot at 10 in the Rugby championships as a stop gap, and then hope like hell THE Goosen isn't injury prone from next year on. Meyer is on cheap crack if he thinks his Bulls darlings are worthy of Bok jerseys. Spies never again, Steyn gooooooooooo, Jaque Potgieter couldn't offload a package if he was a postman goooooooooo, Zane (funny enough...he isn't the worst so he can be a fringe player hahahaha), Olivier gooooooooo Karate Kid. Keen to see who he throws out, if he does of course.

      maakdiebulle.almalbokke - 2012-07-24 17:07

      Guess who was released on bail. Welcome back saffa.

      backstabber.adder - 2012-07-24 18:15

      Newsflash. I e-mailed a buddy in Canada to check on the credentials of "Dr." Johan Spies. Apparently there is no Dr. Johan Spies, Orthopedic Surgeon, or any other doctor by that name, registered in British Columbia! Well well well, that explains why "Dr." Johan Spies the Bone Surgeon" has so much time to troll this website. The only bone he has ever touched is his own... Hehehehehehe...

      tom.tardis - 2012-07-24 18:49

      Backstabber adder - u really are useless.

      backstabber.adder - 2012-07-24 19:20

      Just wanted to make sure that Spies' cover is blown while he is "driving his Aston Martin to Oregon". More likely Ford Escort towing a karavaan to Hatfield. Hehehehe...

      @maakdiestormerssharkscheetahslionsengriquasalmalbulle. They are not that efficient in combating sleeping disorders. The Bulls are better. Their supporters are all going to sleep because their team is nowhere to be seen.

      cape.maori - 2012-07-24 15:34

      I love it when the stormers are so grootbek before the game! Have always been and then they leave Newlands 10 minutes before the final whistle! Boys and girls, please refrain from bragging before the game otherwise you'll have to eat humble pie (again!).

      tom.tardis - 2012-07-24 15:42

      i cannot wait for the stormers to be knocked out i anticipate a new one being ripped by the sharks

      john.maree.90 - 2012-07-24 15:42

      When did that happen?? We lost 2 and not at home Idiot!

      thabiso.s.bokwe - 2012-07-24 15:53

      @cape.maori: it would be one thing if we were \groot bek\ and not delivering on the field. Please do not confuse confidence with arrogance. We've been accused for playing a defensive game. Well, where did that get us? Top of the log sir. Two more defensive games, then we'll be SupeRugby champs.

      john.edwards.733450 - 2012-07-24 15:56

      John , you're clearly a supporter of a team that has to mentally block out what happened more than a few weeks back.

      john.maree.90 - 2012-07-24 16:02

      What happened??? We started slow and then came back and yes we lost in Durban. We will not lose in Cape Town and you supporting the Bulls?

      cape.maori - 2012-07-24 16:15

      @Thabiso - when did the stormers deliver? Show me the cups!! Not finishing top of the log, show us the cups! Only then you can claim they deliver the goods (cups)!

      john.edwards.733450 - 2012-07-24 16:19

      Uhm john we're talking more than a few weeks back .. like the rest of the SR history

      john.maree.90 - 2012-07-24 16:21

      2 years in a row winning the conference cup? Bulls last 2 years 0000000000

      thabiso.s.bokwe - 2012-07-24 16:22

      That's going to be a looooong wait Mr. Tardis.

      john.comyn.18 - 2012-07-24 16:22

      @Cape.chump - who is being a grootbek??? Explain what you find so offensive on this thread.

      thabiso.s.bokwe - 2012-07-24 16:31

      @maori: TWO conference cups sir (YES they count) Which team do you support by the way?

      john.edwards.733450 - 2012-07-24 16:40

      Dear John, The Reds also "won" the conference cup this year, do you think their supporters are going to be bragging all over the interwebs about that? .. NOOOO , only zzztormerzzz supporters .. YOU LOST the competition the past 16 yrs , you've NEVER won it . You don't hear Sharks supporters "brag" about the many finals they've played in ?

      thabiso.s.bokwe - 2012-07-24 16:41

      16h40: thumbs up 28-24 thumbs down... Saturday's score perhaps? Sorry Sharks!

    Crusaders vs Sharks final, Crusaders to win S15. Ek is nie netagief nie, net baie realisties! Iets wat bitter min van julle is! As die Sharks n tuis final gehad het, sou ek Sharks pick vir n wen, maar om so baie op en af te vlieg in 2-3 weke... Net bietjie te veel gevra.

      tom.tardis - 2012-07-24 15:42

      go crusaders! bring it home for me please, need to make some money after last weekends betting

      deon.fouche.3 - 2012-07-24 15:45

      Isak! Jy weet die Sharks gaan wen! Jy moet dit net nog glo! Moenie soos die bulls wees en in die verlede lewe nie boet!!! Knock out games het absoluut NIKS met die verlede te doen nie, en net so terloops, 10 uur vanoggend is ook in die verlede!!!!

      john.edwards.733450 - 2012-07-24 15:58

      Chiefs to win it this year . They're a better team that the Crusaders I think .

      john.edwards.733450 - 2012-07-24 16:04

      Uhmm Mr PH .. almost lost against the rebels .. almost lost against the Lions after a 3 week break . Always made it to the playoffs and always choked in the last 3 ..never won it in 17 .. hasn't played the Chiefs and lost against the Sharks last time you played them . Looked like a "special" team against the Rebels despite the sea , the mountain , the unwashed @sses , the dancing girls

      deon.fouche.3 - 2012-07-24 16:05

      @Random... Might be... But Carter & McCaw ... take them out of the Saders team and they are a very averange team. Must say the Chiefs vs Saders game is going to be the game of the S15 2012...

      tom.tardis - 2012-07-24 16:19

      take dan carter and richie mccaw out and? cmon man, wtf are u talking about? take jean de villiers and peter grant out and the stormers would still be boring

      john.edwards.733450 - 2012-07-24 16:10

      Breaking News the bulls and their supporters thought this season wouldn't be a championship season . Most didn't expect them to make the playoffs this year so we're feeling pretty good about our team + they entertained us with some action packed Rugby which is something your team sure as hell didn't do .

      frank.williams.100 - 2012-07-24 16:18

      @Random, and where did that action packed games get you? Don't be so jealous, your team had a good season and it is now over. Better luck next year. But for now....... STOMERS!!!!!!

    It's gonna be a battle between the forwards and who's defence holds up the most.What a game is in store.Players like Bekker, Etzebeth, Kolisi, Vermuelen, Kritzinger and Elstadt against Jannie, Bismarck, Alberts, Beast, Coetzee and the inform Kankowski! The Stormers are the favourites with our success rate the past 3 years ,and perhaps more so this year. The Stomers are a lot more mature in their appoach this time round than years gone by.Last weekend I was really surprised & impressed with the Sharks great defensive effort against the Reds.But you up against a different "beast" in the form of the Stomers. An epic game.Go Stormers all the way!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      what have the saders and the bulls got to do with this discussion, you stormers okes - is that your only response? to reference the bulls? once again, it is flattering your benchmark for the season is how the bulls do. :D bulle!

      sean.bagley.50 - 2012-07-24 16:34

      @ken.black.969 Success rate for the Stormers against the Sharks in Super Rugby that is. We played each other 18 times and both teams have won 9 times each.However we've played each other 8 times in Cape Town of which the Stormers have won 5 times of those.That is a 63% success rate for the Stormers against the Sharks in Cape Town.

      theunis.botha.96 - 2012-07-24 19:34

      Sean,stop reading the papers and come and quote it here as your own ingenius.Most sport writers don't know what they are talking about in anyway.If you believe the Stormers will take it,you might as well believe in the tooth fairy.Mind if I sell you a good set of second hand wheels?

      @john.edwards. There were three years that the Bulls delivered boring, winning rugby. I doubt you complained then. The only reason you are complaining now is that the Bulls are now just delivering boring rugby. At least the Stormers can add the "winning" part to it.

      tom.tardis - 2012-07-24 16:35

      so what if we ddnt get a single bonus point or played exciting rugby this season. - oh the lolaments have hit me

      christian.denyschen - 2012-07-24 16:37

      Idiot don't you know bulls and stormers has the oldest rugby rivalry in our country, I can promise you any bulls supporter that supports the stormers on Saturday is not a true bulls supporter and the other way round as well no stormer would ever support the bulls that's life so crying like a baby over some criticism is pointless.

      tom.tardis - 2012-07-24 16:47

      christian is 100% right

      backstabber.adder - 2012-07-24 19:29

      The Bulls would rather shoot at other Boers when there is a foreign invasion. Confusion 101. Hehehehe....

  • storm.trooper.125 - 2012-07-24 16:10

    To all the guys dismissing the Stormers rugby as boring Rugby legend Oom Boy Louw said, after a win against Scotland (I think), to people who complained about the lack luster performance of the Bokke: "Looks at the Scoreboard" Will you lot honestly still be bitching and moaning if the Stormers make it to the finals? If you do, you are probably one of the eye-dee-ten-tee's who are driving around with a pair of blue b@ll's - saw chrome one's the other day - under your jacked up V6 converted double cab...GIT

      theunis.botha.96 - 2012-07-24 19:58

      Gedagtes en klagtes.Die Sharks gaan daardie scoreboard so toeverf met hulle eie telling dat ons hopenlik nooit weer daardie aanhalende cliche sal hoor nie.

  • nico.eksteen.7 - 2012-07-24 16:34

    LOL @ Floupille. Stormers all the way!!!

  • nico.eksteen.7 - 2012-07-24 16:40

    If you are a passionate SA rugby supporter you should hope that the Stormers win so that an SA team have the best chance of taking the cup. Should the guppies win, an SA side will definitely NOT win the thing.

      trompie.jonck - 2012-07-24 19:12

      Dude with all due respect! Am gonna support the Sharks! My team first and then SA! I don't believe the stormers have it in them to win the final. They might w the semis but the final? I think not

      gwvickers - 2012-07-24 19:52

      And if you a passionate supporter you know the stormers can't play attacking rugby, you can't be on the defence all the time, Sharks deserve to be there with the type of play they playing, eat you heart out bud

      theunis.botha.96 - 2012-07-24 20:08

      What are you saying...suggesting the Sharks take a fall and stay down for the full count to enable the Stormers a soft admittance to the final?We are not sharing a cake here.

      prudence.arendse - 2012-07-25 11:58

      The Stormers don't have to be given the opportunuty to win???.....because they r WINNERS!!!! And they ARE going to win on saturday!!! WATCH THIS SPACE!!!! Bye for now and I'll be back on Monday ....definately!

  • saffa.cat - 2012-07-24 16:44

    @Jason and Lionel, is the Blou Tokkelos still around? Harold Bulldozer Brink wasn't looking that flash in the portfolio of pics doing the rounds after his court appearance. Orange hair, wild eyes and skinny arms waving. Pitiful. Then again, that's what having Spies as a captain does to supporters of the 'team we shall not mention". (Turns once sober individuals into raving lunatics) Ready for the semi's?

      cape.maori - 2012-07-24 16:47

      Please go away Saffa-Cat!!

      saffa.cat - 2012-07-24 17:04

      How is the weather in Christchurch?

      hvanderlinde - 2012-07-25 14:34

      haha SAF!! Cape bly maar' n maoi

  • lionel.kemm.9 - 2012-07-24 17:07

    Saffa,you said it spot on,''If HM throws players out'' If HM's eyes have not opened by now then we in trouble. Meisiekind the new Karate Kid,hahahahaa I love it Anyway I gotta run,have a good one Cheers

  • Robsschele - 2012-07-24 21:10

    Is that Aston Martin-Spies guy from Canada still on long leave. I always thought that a doctor is not necessarily clever.

      frans.visserdsb - 2012-07-24 21:42

      lol - he is driving his pretend Aston MArtin from Vancouver to Oregon - so he can visit his multi million dollar holiday home...

      ChrisinOz294 - 2012-07-25 01:50

      @frans.visser. Is dit wat hy gese het? Ek het regtig gelees hy sit in sy Ford terwyl die breakdown hom Vaaldam toe sleep. Sorry, ek moes dalk tussen die lyne gelees het en nie mooi gekyk het wat hy actually getik het nie.

      frans.visserdsb - 2012-07-25 14:06

      Chris - ek dink hy is op pad na die witbank dam - toe - vaaldam is te upmarket, en te naby aan die kaap. Wat hy se en wat die waarheid is is so ver uitmekaar dat sy leuens nie sin maak nie...

  • amyleighwilliams - 2012-07-24 22:51

    The chirps on here are so funny. Go sharks show them. We love being underrated.

      tom.tardis - 2012-07-24 23:22

      amy, with a bit of effort, could be scorching hot, comment deemed VALID

      backstabber.adder - 2012-07-25 04:04

      Tardis, if you really look like on your photo, I would strongly advise you not to try and connect looks to validity of comments. Hehehehe...

      tom.tardis - 2012-07-25 08:07

      im buff, tan, my sh*ts good to go

  • stephan.bester.14 - 2012-07-25 09:12

    Well this Bulls supporter will support the stormers for one reason - i can't see the Sharks again go to NZ to play a final and win. They're a fantastic side but I believe that is asked too much. Think SA has a better chance if the NZ winners play here. Hope we see a fantastic injury free game.

  • hans.himmler.7 - 2012-07-25 09:23

    Great White Sharks are Apex Predators of the ocean. Apex Predator means being top of the food chain; it means having no enemies that can't be beaten. Apex Predators more often than not creates HAVOC. BLACK . WHITE . DYNAMITE

      Johann - 2012-07-25 14:03

      Hans, great white sharks have a natural enemy: killer whales. When killer whales and great white sharks clash, the sharks lose.

      hans.himmler.7 - 2012-07-25 14:40

      You are referring to the Orca, which in itself is BLACK AND WHITE....and therefore DYNAMITE.

  • heinrich.roux - 2012-07-26 09:53

    Die Bulle kan nogsteeds die semi's maak... Koop net n kaartjie..
