When did the Sharks start sucking so bad though?
Nobody is worrying about the Stormers bottoming out on the log, and next year without much quality there will be many questions with no answers. Our domestic rugby is more or less dead thanks to bureaucracy and money being allocated to the upper tiers.Also 3/6 but Brumbies by 2 helped me not plummet after the Sharks fiasco. Lots of noise for that but silence after a breeze dies
The official line is that Swys returned for medical reasons and that they then decided that, in the absence of the coach, they wanted their senior players on the park. Sounds plausible to me but in the absence of a definitive statement conspiracies will aboundSo what is happening with the Lions? Player revolt?
Swys benches Marx and Jantjies midweek.
At the last minute Marx and Jantjies are returned to the lineup and Swys is on a plane back home.
Coincidence that Whiteley returns, Swys goes home and suddenly the Lions remember how to play rugby?
Thanks for the clarity. Pretty much backs up what @Speedster said.Stress.
Straeuli says Swys coming home was stress related... Struggling with the pressure of the big job and will be getting professional help.
I feel for him, but Super Rugby is no place for a coach who can’t handle pressure.
I miss Johannes Nicolaas.
Well, the good news is that we have our conditioning coach running the show for the Crusaders game...
