Could the Sharks beat Meyers boks of 2012?
October 21, 2012, 00:36:57

 So far Meyer has delivered 1.5 very good games. The 1st half against England, the game against Australia. 

Average games against the Allbalcks in New Zealand and Argentina in South Africa. 

The other games have been pretty poor. The worst was in Argentina where it looked like a bok team back in 2001 under Straulie. 

The Bulls game plan which Meyer denies is the bok blueprint was evident for much of the season where the order of the day was kick and chase. Even if it is not the exact game plan, he has picked the personel in many cases who can only play the Bull way. And the Bulls of 2012 are not what they were over the last 5 years or so. 

The form of the Sharks towards the end of the SuperXv, was the form team in the tournament. Even many Chiefs supporters would agree with this, that the Sharks are a better team than they are. (except for the final when the Sharks had done more travelling in a short space of time than ever done within the tournament or any rugby tournament).

 

Except Habana, Eztbeth and Goosen I think the Sharks players and game plan could be the boks based upon some of the performances dished up by Meyer. 

The Sharks and Stormers are easily the top2 teams in South Africa but the Sharks have a more complete game plan. The Sharks should sign Goosen, although Lambie is an excellant flyhalf as well so maybe better to have them both at different unions

 No Brycy, many New Zealand commentators said that the Sharks were the form tournamet in the SuperXV after the Northern Hemisphere tours. The Chiefs did beat the Sharks in Durban, however this was before the Sharks hit top form after the return of many key players from injury. We had a poor start to the tournament as many of our Springboks were injured.

the same players that looked majestic under plumtrees game pattern looked very flat and very limp under meyers overcoached conservative tactics....if the boks played with plums's game pattern i bet you 100 bucks we would have taken the 4 nations this year. yes there was injuries but we have more depth than any other teams and he lost not due to lack of players but poor tactics and management. the sharks method of playing will always ensure that they are in with a shout in any type style of game. they proved it in the wet this weekend and will showed through the year that there method of total rugby is the true template of playing rugby,. while other teams are stuck int he middle ages in terms of tactics and mindset they are far more dynamic and progressive in that department. the results show for themselves. as the sharks build more in terms of there depth in players and coaching staff they can become the juggernauths of SH rugby if they continue to improve and build

thats just silly, SA finest vs mr prices finest??? o_O

sharks would get owned from the Boks, the sheer determination that the Boks would have intheir corner at not wanting to lose to the durban mob will give them and endless supply of determinatin and will to turn the sharks back into the banana bunch.

well more than half of the boks are sharks so that will be a great game to watch but on match tactics and and skill wise i dont think the boks would take it to be honest. the true argument is on the approach difference and how possitive attacking play more positive results yield....

 To clarify- The Sharks players will of not be able to play in both teams at the same time.

So it would be Meyers Boks (minus the Sharks) vs the Sharks

This means that it would be the Sharks vs the Stormers & Bulls and bits and bobs from the other regions. In this instance I think the Sharks would win. Only Habana, Ezbeth and a fit Bekker & Goosen are the major threats. The likes of Dean Greyling, Potgieter, Earl Jantjies, Bob Kirchner, Morne Steyn and co coached by Meyer would be their for the taking

Then it won't be Meyer's Boks.

 

It should be Meyer's Boks vs the Sharks minus Meyer's Boks. The national side always takes precedence.

 even if the Sharks players could be cloned to play in both sides at the same time, based on some of Meyers performances I think the Sharks could beat them. I think the Sharks at full strength could maybe beat Argentina in Argentina, and deliver a better performance than what Meyer dished out. The Sharks game plan is better than the boks game plan and it still suits South African strengths. Not just Bulls rugby and the personnel to implement the bools style

Carry on ou Visbok. Now you are cloning the Sharks players. Next you wil have them replace the Springboks and win the final in the 2015 RWC.
