Fantasy Rugby Scout Picks #Stormers

The Stormers were the best of a horrid bunch of Saffas last season. Made the playoffs despite having less points then the seventh placed team. The men from Cape Town have a good draw this season avoiding the traditionally strong Kiwi sides so expect some good scores. Eben Etzebeth – Easily one of the most destructive […]

Fantasy Rugby Scout Picks #Sharks

The Sharks were the underachievers of 2015. After finishing third in 2014 they were one of the favourites but we dismal and individually and as a team, with the exception of Pat Lambie. As a consequence their prices in Fox Fantasy make them an attractive investment if the Sharks find form. Sbu Sithole – Equally […]

Same knee, same round, different season

Pieter Steph du Toit is injured the same knee he did in round five last year. The Sharks traditional weakness at lock will be tested to the brink with news that Pieter Steph du Toit has suffered a “potentially” season ending injury. Du Toit had the dreaded ACL injury in 2014 and this time he […]

Stormers and Sharks reignite bitter rivalry!

SHARKS Rugby is a funny old game… when you’re winning that is. The oval ball most certainly didn’t bounce in favour of the Sharks last weekend, as they found themselves on the short end of the referees whistle in their toe-to-toe humdinger with the Bulls that ultimately saw the Durban franchise return home with a big fat zero […]

Recovering Sharks take on injured Bulls

Sharks VS Bulls SharksEven the allure of free tickets could not draw the Sharks faithful to Kingspark last Saturday. Although, one gets the feeling that it had a lot more to do with the tsunami that unleashed itself on Durban than the current state of Sharks rugby. The Sharks did well to pull 5 points out of […]

Last weeks losers seek redemption

Sharks VS Lions  SharksThe Sharks started 2015 without even so much as missing a beat in terms of their form which saw them crash stupendously out of the 2014 SR season as well as the local but less glamorous bun fight, the 2014 Currie Cup. Amid promises from the Banana Boys that paled the commitments uttered by […]

Upset number 2: Sharks vs Cheetahs

Sharks 29 – 35 Cheetahs  The Cheetahs side, having lost their inspirational captain Adriaan Strauss went to the Shark tank as rank underdogs. The home side looked settled and experienced. On paper that is. The Cheetahs unsettled the home side early on and ran them ragged. The visitors won 35-29, picking up a bonus point win […]

Sharks sink Toulon’s battleship

The Sharks defeated Toulon 12-10 last night to win the 2015 Rugby Masters. The North versus South challenge match at Stade Mayol contrasted the different hemisphere’s styles of rugby. Except in a volte-face it was the Northern side doing all the running while the Southerners sat tight. The home side played for the crowd while […]
