Olivier still doubtful


The coach of the Vodacom Bulls Frans Ludeke has named Wynand Olivier at inside centre for Saturday’s Vodacom Super 14 final against the Chiefs at Loftus Versfeld but it remains to be seen whether the Springbok midfielder will recover in time.

Olivier run with the team on Tuesday morning and Ludeke is optimistic about his recovery but a final call will only be made later the week.

The Bulls’ first option is to play Olivier and Jaco Pretorius in the midfield but if Olivier does not recover Pretorius will again partner Marius Delport with the young talented Gerhard van den Heever on the bench.

Ludeke has otherwise left the team that ensured a home final unchanged and he said at the weekly press conference that was held at Loftus on Tuesday that the team is looking forward to the clash against the Chiefs.

“It is a great opportunity to play in a final at Loftus and we are excited about the challenge that awaits us.

“We have prepared well and the team is focused on the job at hand.”

The captain Victor Matfield added that you never know when the opportunity to play in a home final will emerge again and this is one of the reasons why the Bulls are going to put in a massive effort on Saturday.

“It is a new game and anything can happen, but we know that we need to play for the full 80 minutes against a team such as the Chiefs. What we have done in the round robin stage of the competition means nothing in a final, but we will definitely use that foundation on Saturday. We must have a great work ethic from the first to the last minute and grind out the right result.

“It is all about using and creating opportunities and absorbing the pressure that comes with a game like this.”

Vodacom Bulls: 15 Zane Kirchner; 14 Akona Ndungane, 13 Jaco Pretorius/Marius Delport , 12 Wynand Olivier/Jaco Pretorius, 11 Bryan Habana; 10 Morné Steyn, 9 Fourie du Preez; 8 Pierre Spies, 7 Dewald Potgieter, 6 Deon Stegmann, 5 Victor Matfield (captain), 4 Bakkies Botha, 3 Werner Kruger, 2 Derick Kuün, 1 Gurthrö Steenkamp. Substititutes: 16 Chiliboy Ralepelle, 17 Rayno Gerber, 18 Danie Rossouw, 19 Pedrie Wannenburg, 20 Heini Adams, 21 Burton Francis, 22 Marius Delport/Gerhard van den Heever.

Olivier sal reg wees, het hom gister in die gym gesien, hy kan weer hardloop...

10. Ek gaan iets in Afrikaans try se...so wees geduldig asb...:-)

Ek will net se (without sounding like a suck up) - julle ouens op hierdie blog is bak! Die ouens wat op die Sharks blog ge-chat het was 'n regte klomp suur ou 'bokse'. 'n ou mag niks daar se nie....

Hulle het my ge-attack oordat ek eendag vir hulle gese het ek hou nie van die gebruik van die woord 'dutchman' nie. Een ou het selfs 'n fisiese dreiging gemaak. Ek sal baie eerder hier kom rugby gesels.

As dit nie vir die feit was dat ek my hele lewe 'n fanatiese Sharks ondersteuner grootgemaak was nie - het ek oorgeslaan Bulle toe. Julle ouens het excellent gees.

Jammer vir die slegte Afrikaans. Ek probeer maar...:-)

En moenie worry nie, die ouens hier is sonder prejudice glo ek, hier praat ons rugby en los die politiek vir ander!

En hulle kan ons maar Dutchmen noem, dit is 'n sure se manier om te wys hulle is jaloers, en as ander mense jou envy dan is dit mos 'n goeie ding!

Jy is welkom Sharko, en ek support die Sharks enige dag wat hulle nie teen die Bulle speel nie, veral play-offs! Ek het glad nie 'n probleem met die Haaitjies nie, party Sharks supporters maak dit maar net bietjie moeilik partymaal, maar nie jy nie Sharko!

31. Montgomery also assisted goal-kickers Peter Grant, Earl Rose and Meyer Bosman as the trio attempted shots at goal. The backs also worked on their running and support lines, with Grant positioned the majority of the time at pivot ahead of Rose.

34. Bloumens - All we can hope, is that sanity prevails after the final, and that Morne Steyn is called up as our first choice flyhalf. Never before has anything been so blatantly clear than the fact that he is South Africa's best 10 at the moment. He could not have made it easier for the selectors by playing like he has this season.

I hope political nonsense doesn't interfere.

If I could have my way - My SA team right now would be 15-Terrblanche, 14 - Pietersen, 13 - Fourie, 12 - De Villiers, 11 - Habana, 10 - Morne Steyn, 9 - Fourie Du Preez, 8 - Pierre Spies, 7 - Jean Deysel, 6 - Schalk Burger, 5 - Victor Matfield (C), 4 - Bakkies Botha, 3 - John Smit, 2 - Bismark Du Plessis, 1 - Beast Mtwarira.

Reserves: Gurthro Steenkamp, Jannie Du Plessis, Danie Rossouw, Ryan Kankowski, Ruan Pienaar, Zane Kirchner, Wynand Olivier.

Remember, being on the bench for the Lions doesn't mean you are second best - it could mean that you are there as a tactical replacement, to just tighten the hangman's knot at the end.

I think with that team, we will murder the Lions.

38. B*Babe - No, never in a million years. I am actually not a big fan of Fourie's, but dont you think Olivier is a better 12 ?

I am all for swapping players around, but, I dont like messing with centre combinations. Wynand is a valuable replacement to have on the bench. I can see him ripping the Lions to pieces when their legs start to give in.

But, as a player - Wynand is better than Jacques, but as a outside centre, I think Jacques is slightly better...sorry....
Posted by Sharko (Petoorsfontein) Tuesday, May 26, 2009 - 14:43

45. B*Babe - You could be right. One thing that definitely counts in Akona Ndungane's favour is he is a natural right wing, whereas Pietersen is not.

South Africa are in a good position this year with depth - we have a lot of players who are real borderline cases and who probably deserve a chance. Players worth mentioning just from the Bulls are Stegman, Potgieter, Wannenburg, Kuun & Jaco Pretorius. If only a team were comprised of 30 players, then we could reward all players that have performed in the Super 14....:-)

All in all - if only this Super 14 tournament was used as a yardstick, I would probably agree with you that Akona deserves a place. And - who knows, maybe PdV agrees...lets wait and see.

But I think they can still grow a lot, and seeing as they are still young they will have a lot more chances in the future.

I am quite curious to see PdV decisions in certain areas. Think we might be in for a few suprises (good ones hopefully)

52. Die woorde van Frans Ludeke hou my as ondersteuner stil en nederig. "Nog niks is bereik nie......" Dit is GROOT en WYSE woorde.

Welkom Sharko en daar is nie fout met jou Afrikaans nie. Ja, ons moet oppas dat ons span nie Saterdag self "choke" nie. Onthou julle hoe is ons gespot deur die einste Chokers na die 2008 CB finaal?

Ek het baie hoop vir die Bulls. Die tuisveld voordeel is groot. Baie van die spelers het ondervinding in finale ens. Dit maak egter nie die Chiefs 'n minder gevaarlike span nie - eerder gevaarliker. Die Chiefs is die keer die "underdogs" en ek hou niks daarvan nie. Hulle agterlyn is gevaarliker as die Crusaders s'n en dit is waar ek bekommerd raak.

Net soos die mediese span, het Frans 'n reuse taak om die Bulls kalm en gefokus te hou. Sterkte manne, julle ondersteuners wag in spanning........

Laastens, oor die geraas as spelers pale toe skop. 'n Oud-speler het dit goed opgesom. "Skoppers op die vlak is dit lankal gewoond. Dit bly menslik dat die gejuig oor die mis maar sny aan jou binneste". Dus, as ons dit kan reg kry om stil te bly tydens die skop, kan dit nogal die ou ontsenu want hy verwag 'n geraas en nie stilte nie. Prakties uitvoerbaar? Good luck!

56. Ek gan ook nou soos Sharko soet Afrikaans gooi.

Vir baie jare is almal (meerderheid) op hierdie blog soos ek absoluut BLOU, ons staan vandag as sekerlik die gevaarlikste entiteit in Suidelike halfrond se klub rugby (bedoelende provisionaal), en nou kan ons meer as gerus wees dat ons harde houdings teenoor anti-blou bulle nou finaal afbetaal het.

Ek sal graag namens elke BLOU BLOU BLOU ondersteuner wil dankie sê vir die ondersteuning wat ek Saterdag in en rondom Pretoria gesien het vanaf Nie-Bul ondersteuners, julle gille het baie gehelp om Pierre aan te moedig toe hy nader aan die pale hardloop, maar die pale nogsteeds verder wegbeweeg het van hom.

Met die bg. gesê sal ek graag elke Nie-Bul ondersteuner se gille aanvaar solank dit vir die Bulle is, ongelukkig het ek ook baie manne (en vroue) gesien wat teen die Bulle geskree het, en aan julle wil ek graag die versoek doen om by die huis te bly, julle maak my kwaad as ek julle sien.

Aan die manne wat op die ouend die werk moet doen Saterdag terwyl ons julle aanspoor, Frans, jy en jou afrigtingspan het 'n uitstekende werk gedoen, julle het weereens die Blou vlag daai pragtige wen Blou gemaak, en aan die spelers wil ek net sê: Julle is klaar heros, bring nou net die bewyse Loftus toe.

65. Jammer om weer op die ou noot te hammer, maar ek is steeds nie heeltemal seker nie, kan julle my asseblief help?
As ek die stuk hieronder lees, beteken dit dat daar weer rolling mauls (die Bulle se beste aanvalswapen, wat heel toevallig die afgelope naweek amper goed op dreef gekom het - soos van ouds) gaan wees, omdat dit nie afgetrek mag word nie?
En van wanneer af gaan dit weer geld?
En watter reels gaan geld teen die Britse Leeus?


The Council of the International Rugby Board (IRB) this week accepted recommendations made by the IRB Rugby Committee and approved 10 of the 13 global Experimental Law Variations (ELVs) for adoption into the Laws of the Game.
André Watson, manager of referees at the South African Rugby Union (SARU), will communicate with the various Unions, Clubs and Schools in writing within the next week about the implementation of these laws in respect of the who, when, where, etc.

“This is in order to avoid any confusion. The ideal would be for it to be implemented at all levels as soon as possible as the whole of South African rugby is playing 12 out of the 10 newly approved laws anyway,” said Watson.

“The only laws to adjust to is the non-collapsing of the maul and no number restrictions at the line out.”

These ELVs will be implemented globally on May 23. It will be used during the Castle South Africa 2009 Lions Series and as advised through Watson’s desk from SARU.

ELVs adopted into Law:

Law 6 – Assistant Referees able to assist Referees in any way the Referee requires.

Law 19 – If a team puts the ball back in their own 22 and the ball is subsequently kicked directly into touch there is no gain in ground.

Law 19 – A quick throw may be thrown in straight or towards the throwing team’s goal line.

Law 19 – The receiver at the lineout must be two metres back away from the lineout.

Law 19 – The player who is in opposition to the player throwing in the ball must stand in the area between the five metre line and touch line and must be two metres from the line of touch and at least two metres from the lineout.

Law 19 – Lineout players may pre-grip a jumper before the ball is thrown in.

Law 19 – The lifting of lineout jumpers is permitted.

Law 20 – Introduction of an offside line five metres behind the hindmost feet of the Scrum.

Law 20 – Scrum half offside line at the Scrum.

Law 20 – The corner posts are no longer considered to be touch in goal except when the ball is grounded against the post.

Union-specific ELVs approved by Council:

1. Unions may implement rolling substitutions at defined levels of the Game.

2. Union having jurisdiction over a Game may implement a half time interval of not more than 15 minutes, but not at international level.

3. A Union may implement the Under 19 Scrum Law Variation at a defined level of the Game under its jurisdiction.

66. Goeie dag al die bloggers

Nou-ja, die kalmeerpille het nou uitgewerk en ek kon die 'password' onthou.

JB, ja ek kan nou ook sê, maar ek het jou gesê - dis nou oor die senters. Bly hulle het goed gedoen, maar hulle kan beter. Ek dink Jaco is bietjie klein, want die Saders het hom terug geduik. Hierdie naweek is dit monsters wat teen ons speel. Gelukkig speel Sivivatu nie, thanks for small mercies.

Oor Saterdag se wedstryd - ek was bietjie teleurgesteld in die besluitneming agterlangs, daar was kere dat Jaco, Marius en Bryan in die agterlyn was en drie Saders teen hulle, waarvan twee voorrye was. As ons daar die bal laat loop het, het die Bulle verseker verder gewen.

HOU BY DIE BLOU.....

67. Naand Rustig

Ja, jy het my gese........ ek hoop jy het gesien dat ek spesiaal melding gemaak het van ons senters. Soos jy se, dit was nie foutloos nie maar hulle het genoeg gedoen om die wedstryd te wen.

Die Crusaders het behoorlik onder almal ingeklim en ek was net te dankbaar dat dit nie 80 min aangehou het nie. Die Chiefs is menere agterlangs en die senter Kahui is 'n derduiwel. Ek wens ek kon seker maak dat Sivivatu 100% seker nog in NZ is en pleks dat hulle Masanga ook by die huis vergeet het.

Daai drie herrinner my te veel aan die dae van Jonah Lomu en Christiaan Cullen.

Soos ek bo gesê het, hierdie agterlyn is monsters. Moenie hul agsteman weggooi nie.

Ons het 19:00 'n aandete by die Sheraton, ek sal bietjie vra of hy ingeboek het?

Kahui het nie laas teen ons gespeel nie, maar Sivivatu ook nie. Ons sal ons keer moet ken. John van Rensburg het gisteraand gesê die Chiefs se vaste 5 (6) is nie so goed nie, maar ek weet nie, vir 'n eidstryd is alles meer gelyk as voorheen.

70. Sharko - I know exactly the sentiment you are talking about. One Sport24, comments take one of three angles: pro-Bulls from supporters, pro-Bulls from other South Africans whose teams are not in the finals and blatant anti-bulls pro-chiefs sentiment. The Chiefs are good. Last year, I told anyone who would listen that 2009 the Chiefs will be contenders. They are. If you are a fan of rugby, they are an enjoyable team to watch. BUT this is not the reason for the blatant anti-bulls sentiment on Sport24: it is mainly Sharks and Stormers fans who are bitter about the bad and really bad performances respectively of their own teams.

The Sharks tried and remained in contention right to the end, if only barely. The Stormers meant nothing from the beginning. That is not my problem or fault but reading the drivel on Sport24, you would swear that the Bulls and the Bulls Fans went out of their own way to keep other SA teams out. We didn't. We played exceptionally. No home losses and an excellent away record is what put us where we are today. That is the fact that many neigh-sayers turn in to criticisms.

FACT: We played VERY hard and worked VERY hard
FACT: Not a single match official was ever lenient towards us
FACT: We have been singled out for unfair treatment in the citing committees
FACT: We are on top

Well done on having the grace to join us as one of those supporters who prizes a great display of rugby and consistent performance. Even though we are Bulls, we tolerate Sharkies here and even put up with their dreams, which is far more than I can say for the Sport24 blog.

81. Ek weet nie so mooi nie wat die telling gaan wees nie. Saterdag het 'n kalmeerpil hier by 13:00 gedrink en die ouens rondom ons het vir my vrou gevra, hoekom is ek so stil.

Sies man, hoeveel wyn het jy al in? Lyk my jou vingers is gewyn !!!!

90. Ek hou my duime styf vas vir 'n fikse Wynand Saterdag. Ek is darem nog jonk genoeg om sonder kalmeerpille klaar te kom, maar as ek dit gebruik het, sou Saterdag seker 'n dubbele dosis genoodsaak het!

Die Chiefs lyk baie, baie goed. Hulle agterlyn is pure 'Michael Schumacher in 'n Ferrari'; daar is hope spoed en min kans vir verbysteek.

Die feit dat hulle skaars 'n paar weke gelede op Loftus ons tot in die rooi gedruk het, maak hulle soveel gevaarliker as die Crusaders in my boeke.

Ludeke se wyse woorde "dat die Bulle nog niks bereik het", som die situasie perfek op; HIERDIE is die hekkie waaroor jy nie wil struikel nie.

Ek hoop daarom van harte dat die span vanaf die eerste tot die laaste sekonde die regte ingesteldheid sal hê; ons moet vir 80 min. speel asof daar geen môre is. Hierdie 20 min insinkings wat nou al so deel van die Bulle se spel geword het, veral in die laaste 4 wedstryde, kan ons duur te staan kom teen 'n Chiefs span wat niks het om te verloor het nie.

Die span en bestuur het wonderlik gedoen om tot hier te kom, maar Saterdag se uitslag sal bepaal of die 2009 groep die titel vedien as Beste Bulle nog, of in die argiewe opgeteken sal word as naasbestes.

Wat dink julle? Ek is net bang hulle gaan vir MS teiken en hom afsny vir goeie skoppe

92. Naand se aan die Bul ondersteuners! Ek is en was nog altyd n Sharks ondersteuner, hulle het hul eie lot bepaal die jaar en het hul kanse opgefoeter! Die Bulle verdien dit om in die eindstryd te speel, jul het goeie rugby reg deur die jaar gespeel en sal Saterdag weer. Sterkte aan die span hoop jul het n gr8 game en kan daai beker vir n tweede keer lug! En aan al die ander SA mense wat teen die Bulle is, word groot en aanvaar jou span het dit nie gemaak nie!

93. Ek waardeer dit baie dat die sharks die stryd strydbyl vir so rukkie begrawe het en die Bulle sterkte toewens. Dankie

Ons Gaan dit weer doen in 2009.

101. Hopelik suffer hulle van so bietjie jetlag. Want hulle het gekom om te wen, en hulle gaan als wat hulle het ons kant toe gooi.

Maar so ook die manne in die blou... dis hoekom dit 'n great game gaan wees.

104. Kom aan Wynand, ons wil jou in die final sien. Miskien moet jy maar my spesiale medisyne konkosie inneem. Dit het my altyd vinnig reg geruk. Vat net so 750ml bottel Red Heart Rum en n 2 liter coke. Ys is opsioneel.

Jy sal daai Chiefs stukkend hardloop,glo my.
