Brumbies to beat Sharkies?
March 16, 2013, 13:26:45

 There have to be concwerns as the shaks have been piss poor/bog ordinary. However they are at home so maybe they could perk up.

Frans Steyn had better watch out. more of the same and he will be subbed. Wee daniels weaken them of course and the loose trio lacks abruiser of note. However it is very mobile so maybe we will see the sharkies running the ball. Oh that Lambie would throw off the shackles.

They are up against the master tactician Jake White. Can the Brumbies shrug off the travel issue.

Hey sharkbok etc you oaks are very quiet. Nerves troubling you guys.

It is a home game so I would have expected a little bit of confidence from the normally chest beating rooitwit. By now he should have told us all yet again how great the sharks are and conclude with a weeeeheee and Go sharks etc.

Bwahahahahaha

 Will the smallish sharks loosies cope with the big brumby loosies? 

Something to look out for.

 Well the small sharks pack are being outmuscled as well. As the commentators are saying the superbly coached brumbies are dominating the collisions. The big number 8 ios hammering away.

As things look now only jetlag can save the sharks. If things continue like this it will get ugly. 

Can the brumbies keep this up?

Brumbies score bonus point try!

 Superb brumbies Lady Mo(NH). One of the best halves seen for many a year.

As I said above only jet lag can save the sharkies. Brumbies outclassing them completely. Superbly drilled side.

If they play another half like this the sharkies will get one of biggest hidings ever. 

They are simply outgunned in the forwards and the Brumbies backs are getting excellent front foot ball. 

For this half at least the show pony sharks loose trio has been spannered and as usual wee keegan has disappeared. Poorly conceived loose trio. Plum you hatter bring on Du Toit at 7.

Brumbies loook class to me.  Some very good strong creative backs as well.

The value of Bissie and Alberts being underlined. Need Alberts at 8 and Du Toit at 7 as well of couse Bissie at hooker. That pack would be a match for the brumbies.

Frans Steyn playing very poorly again. He simply seems to have nothing to offfer.

Beano you seem to be enjoying too much the hammer heads getting their heads hammered. Are'nt you next on the Brumbies hit list though?

Will be funny to see you're comments next week after relishing in your countrymens defeat this week. The Stormers could get one of their biggest hidings ever ;)

 black udder I see the sharkies are doing better and the brumbies are tiring so we shall see how this goes. 

While some of our top players are out other sides do have a chance but I take us to sort out the brumbies even with the team we have just like we sorted out the wee chiefies.

The Stormers getting their biggest hiding ever exists only in your dreams as a consequence of a delusional mind!!

 LOL If this is the best South Afrikans can do we can write your teams off here and now. Try not to confuse our game against the Stormers with that charity match where the Chiefs scraped your arses off the bottom of the table though .

We're Mainlanders from the greatest Super Rugby outfit in history so no comparison with those one hit wonders from the Waikato. Get that and you're on the way to realising how much of a trouncing is coming your way in Round 7.

 black udder your lonely braincell has clearly forgotten events of last week. Dont let a little success go to your empty head andrattle around there.

Your side was loaded with abs so you twits could win the Super 14 etc.  Central contracting may have sinister aspects to it?  But now the crusties are looking below par and a win againt the hapless bulle on Saturday does'nt change that.

Dream on black udder.

No need to thank us for giving you a head start in the competition Beanob. You above anyone obviously need it. Our generosity knows no bounds but time to get this show on the road though now and you will be eating our dust.

Watch and weep Beanob.

It was a comprehensive win for the brumbies that will certainly give them the confidence to do well in their next match, well deserved. From what i observed Fotu Auelau was potent, a great performance. Essentially what brumbies did was maintain possession, constructing phases after phase until the sharks defensive structure was unorgansised then went wide. The sharks was tired particularly in first half from tackling too much. Sharks needed to get the wingers involved more,  Lambie was ordinary as usual, a lack of mobility.Terrible display overall really from the Sharks. I don't expect the Stormers to perform this bad due to the fact that Stormers defending is more effective, I believe they have enough physicality to beat the Brumbies next week after the superb performance against the champion chiefs.

 Sound post Lucid. They keep writing us off each seasn and then we to pthe log and win the Sa Conference.

 The Brumbies delivered a master class to embarrass the Sharks 29-10 in Durban.

 

The Brumbies scored four tries within 30 minutes with a stunningly aggressive and intelligent display.

Rarely has an Australian team so physically pummeled a South African side, but the Brumbies crushed the Sharks in the collisions. Brumbies No 8 Fotu Auelua terrorized the Sharks defence in the opening quarter and the sustained aggression and amazing ball control left the hosts and their supporters shell shocked.

I had the Sharks to beat the Brumbies but I also expected the Sharks to actually turn up at the scheduled kick-off and not 52 minutes into the game.

The Brumbies stunned the Sharks with the manner in which they used the ball, but no one outside of the Brumbies would have expected the physical battering delivered in every contact situation, be it a collision or in the scrums.

The Brumbies were too good by a long way and this ranks as a humiliation.

The Brumbies, with loose-forwards Auelua, captain Ben Mowan and veteran George Smith outstanding, also won for a tournament record seventh successive time away from home.

Springbok 2007 World Cup-winning coach Jake White cannot be applauded enough for what he has done with a Brumbies franchise that was a joke in 2011. Last year he took no name brands and youngsters and turned them into one of the more exciting teams in the competition. This season he has added a bit of experience and mongrel to the set piece, attack and defence and turned them into championship contenders.

The ball control in difficult conditions was near perfect in the first 30 minutes but it was the absolute physical domination of the Brumbies that few among among the home crowd would ever have thought a possibility.

The Brumbies were brutal; the Sharks were passive in defence and in the opening 30 minutes the Sharks missed as many tackles as the Brumbies were forced to make.

The Sharks made 73 tackles to 25 in the first 30 minutes as the Brumbies set the platform for a first win in Durban in six years. It was a record-breaking result and the best team display in the tournament so far.

The attack was awe-inspiring in the first half but nothing in defence was compromised and after four matches the Brumbies have conceded just 35 points.

The Sharks showed more intent in the second half and replacement hooker Kyle Cooper and lock Pieter-Stef du Toit showed enthusiasm and commitment that was absent in the first 40 minutes. Loose-forwards Ryan Kankowski and Marcel Coetzee also were more of a menace in the second half but it proved meaningless after the impotency of the first half.

The Brumbies, from Jesse Mogg at fullback to the front row, were brilliant. You find the appropriate adjective to describe the Sharks and make sure you use an equally appropriate expletive.

THE QUESTION IS WHY DID ANYBODY THINK YOU WILL DOMINATE AT FORWARD WITH THE LIKES OF BURDEN, DANIEL, COETZEE AND KAK KAN? 

Can anybody explain why this 885 kg pack was suppossed to dominate?

One word of consolation to the sharks. Provided ou Plum realises his mistakes and gets back into the pack all of Bissie, Alberts (8) and Du toit at 7 he will transform the sharks season. The brumbies would not have been able to dominate physically, the collisions etc with those three in the pack. On Saturday he should have started with Du Toit at 7 and that other hooker who is better than Burden.

The sharks had too many show ponies playing on the field at the same time.

I trust Whitehead will be back but Bosman right now would be a better bet to partner Jordaan than the dismal Frans Steyn - who must find his form some place else for now.

Plum please heed these bits of advice.
