It is done. The Sharks are through to the semi-finals of the Super 14 rugby tournament. The excesses of yesterday’s cheering and after-match celebrations are very evident this morning as I nurse a slight hangover. It was great though to see a highly talented team finally hit their straps after a rather mediocre season. Considering that the Sharks topped the log last season and were “beaten” by the Bulls in the finals only through a refeering error, this has been a strange season for them. Well, all’s well that ends well; it may be a good thing that they are peaking right now for the final games. As always I’m truly impressed by Ryan Kankowski, “Beast” Mtawarira, Rory Kockott and Jacques Botes, although to be fair the whole team put in a splendid performance yesterday. Running in 7 tries to 3 against the Hurricanes was quite impressive. Can’t wait for next weekend when they take on the Waratahs. Go Sharks!!!
