Sharks ranked equal 5th take on the Western Force (still ranked 14th) at home, the Sharks have a shot at making the semi’s and will be looking for the full 5 points. However the Force will be looking for the points to get off the bottom of the ladder. This will be an interesting game…

Besides the 5 points Sharks also need to put up a big score past Force and they also need Brumbies not to get a bonus point from Chch

The TRUTH

I'm going for the Sharks to comfortably beat Force, and Crusaders to deny Brunbies the onus point they need, sneaking the Sharks into the semis, just to break the boredom of NZ and Oz semi finalists every year...

I won't be too disappointed if the Sharks miss the Semi's. They have improved so much on last year that I feel satisfied with this Super season. Expect the Sharks to do very well in this years Currie Cup and challenge for a Final spot (not semi but Final).

Oh and Sharks to win this by 10 and gain a bonus point.

Can Sharks put more than 30 points over Force? I really think they can! Will they make the semis? Hmm, they got smth like 25% chances if you ask me!

Yeap, very true, thanks Crusaders !

SA can have a semifinalist if Sharks win the bonus point and kick Force arse by more than 8 points !

90% chances for the Sharks!

P.S: And Sharks can win in Chch, they almost did it in the regular season !

Thought the Sharks were gonna lose their margin at the end. Stoked they didn't, taught the Brumbies a lesson though. Wonder how they feel now after resting their star players!

Hahaha! Like me another non-cantabian convert :bravo:

Bet you Sharks fans were losing faith during the Crusaders/Brumbies match with 15 mins to go.......don't you know that the Crusaders go hard to the end.....even when they have NOTHING to gain from it...they will put in 100% effort till th whistle blows......as highlighted by their try in the final minute...

Don&#39;t know if everyone overseas knows, but the Crusaders themselves came out in the media a while back and said that more often than not they win games or put opposition away in the final 10 minutes of a game, and have lebelled them the "championship minutes". At the time seemed a little cocky, but as last night showed, truth hurts...

I set my alarm for this game, but i slept right through it!! Im glad the sharks won, so they are they guaranteed a semi now?? If so they will be playing the crusaders wont they?

Im hoping for a sharks hurricanes final, im dreaming though.

I said last night while looking at the table after the reds game "it would be good to see the sharks in the semi final" :o

Somehow i dont think the bulls will win by 47 :P

Bulls will be lucky to win their match.

Shame on you Brumbies, shame on you.

Good win for the Sharks - I wonder if the Brumbies had already booked their accomodation in Christchurch?

Frankly, I&#39;m disappointed. Yes, very much so, but heck well done to the Sharks. We only have ourselves to blame for our elimination. We didn&#39;t get enough bonus points and we were very lucky with some of our results. We shouldn&#39;t have beaten the Bulls, we shouldn&#39;t have drawn with the Stormers... heck we were lucky to beat the Sharkies. We should have scored another try against the Force, against the Cats, etc. Last night just finished us. To let in 21 points in the last 10 minutes is disgraceful. Yes, the Sharks won 7, lost 6, but they played much better overall - even when they lost. Well done.

Our turning point was the Waratahs game, but we went in the wrong direction. Yes Larkham got injured, but we have capable back-ups. Since then we have lacked a lot of confidence and frankly we didn&#39;t deserve to be in the semis if we&#39;d got there.

Congratulations to the Sharks and I&#39;ll be backing them for the finals! Here&#39;s hoping an SA team can finally win Super Rugby....



Signing off,

Jacko Laxative ;)

They only need 33 points or more. Go the Stormers.
