The Sharks. WP bogey team?
August 12, 2012 in Uncategorized
Strength vs Strength. That is what was promised to us for the now already on the way Currie Cup. A statement that couldn’t be further from the truth. How can it be true when 30 Springboks aren’t involved? All of a sudden the Lions look like they are actually enjoying playing rugby again. I would also be glad not being Bullied week in and week out. They can now do the Bullying because the Big Boys are away. So Strength vs Strength, I’m not convinced.
Coming back to my heading.
Are the Sharks now WP’s bogey team? Before the game their supporters made comments like” die naweek k@k jou span weer”, and just before the Semi Final comments like ” enjoy your whiskey, you are going to need it”. Are the Stormers/WP supporters quickly becoming no better than our Pommie friends by “chest beating” before the time?
WP was supposed to run riot against a Sharks C side, but as per norm with WP, they took a healthy lead only to slip into their defensive comfort zone again. A beautiful drop goal sinking the SA flagship once again.
I said it before, and i’ll say it again. Fire the coaches. Mr Coetzee and Mr Fleck are like cancer to a healthy body, slowly but surely killing a good team. Fleck was a flair player in his day and has done nothing for the WP backline to get them going. That being said though, he did well with UCT the year they won the Varsity Cup. That was also the year he got the job with the Stormers. So is it really his fault? Coetzee did great things with Wp/Stormers a few years ago. they were suddenly competing for trophies again. There was even talk about him being Springbok coach just before Helium de Villiers was appointed. So what went wrong?
Maybe its time to rethink the coaching staff or atleast their tactics at Province, beacause it isnt working. Get Nick Mallett in, he is free and I am sure he will grasp at the oppertunity to coach a SA side again.
