GAVIN RICH: Sharks need to make a plan — and ditch Du Preez
Their problems include coaching, selection and effort levels, as they vacillate between apathy and passion
The Sharks weren’t expected to beat the Jaguares in Buenos Aires on Saturday, but there was still plenty of justification for concern over the manner in which they were outplayed for the second time this season by the Argentine team.
Concern, that is, for the Sharks and their immediate future, and also concern for what the Sharks’ bankrupt game-plan symbolises for SA rugby as a whole. The other local teams do look like they have at least a semblance of a plan, but with the Sharks the need for physical dominance as the starting point for anything to work is taken to the extreme.
