    Will be a tough opener for the Sharks as we all know that Griquas are a tough nut to crack at home on a rock hard Kimberley pitch.
    Think this game will be a nail bitter right to the end and that the Sharks experience might pull them through a the end.

    My prediction: Sharks to win by no more than 10 points.

    I am hoping Rory Kockott can make a good impression this Currie Cup so he might be selected for the Springboks. I feel he's one of those players who is very close to being chosen for the SB squad

    Yeah should be between Kockott, Pretorius and Vermaak for the no.9 jersey come end of the year tour.Kockott is my favorite out of those 3 players for that jersey.

    Wow. I am surprised I have a fellow Kockott-fan. When I first saw him play about 2 years ago I was so surprised. Together with Ryan Kankowski and Francois Steyn they were the talented trio that made me want to watch The Sharks even more. Especially Kankowski is a very strong player that will get his chance to move up in line towards the starting 15 for the Springboks. About Francois Steyn we don't have to even discuss anything. He's amazing in every way.

    I am curious to see how Kockott will do once Pienaar leaves for Europe later this year.

    Mon the Sharks!

    I have a funny feeling the Griquas aren't going to do so well this year, they got their momentum last year by winning the Vodacom Cup, this year their first choice combinations have rarely played together, if not for the Griquas at all, this could result in them being a bit off the pace when facing the Sharks.

    Hopefully a demolition of the Griquas wil get them clicking, soon to be thrashing the Bulls at Loftus, and leaving them without a semi-final place come the semi-finals B)

    The Sharks team has been announced

    1. Pat Cilliers
    2. Craig Burden
    3. Wiehan Herbst
    4. Steven Sykes
    5. Allistair Hargreaves
    6. Jacques Botes
    7. Micheal Rhodes
    8. Keegan Daniel
    9. Rory Kocket
    10. Steven Meyer
    11. Lwazi Mvovo
    12. Riaan Swanepoel
    13. Stefan Terblanche (captain)
    14. Louis Loudik
    15. Pat Lambie


    Very inexperienced bench, hope they pull through until the injury count declines

    Wow!Griquas showed some heart to come back from a 14 point deficit at half time to win by 6 points at the end!Seems like Griquas will be hard to beat yet again this year at home.

    Absolutely great game! Bjorn Basson is the new Habana, he's got pace and skills. Riaan Viljoen, what a boot!

    I think I might be becoming a Griquas fan but as they say here...

    PROOOOVINCE PROOOOOVINCE DIE CURRIE CUP KOM WEER!

    :(

    Went straight to bed after that, and only watched the WP vs Cheetahs game with half interest, however I came up with a theory to encourage Sharks supporters everywhere

    This 'defeat' wasn't a bad thing, as the Sharks only play the Griquas until a later stage of the competition, when injuries would have taken their toll.
    In the mean time, the Griquas can knock over a few of the other big guns, after the confidence they got from this win. The physicality involvedshould knacker them even more come the second round Sharks vs Griquas game.

    I know it involves a lot of variables, but hey, its either this or suicide!
