Sharks want to push on from Bulls win
INTERVIEW: Expect a tough battle when the Sharks travel to Ellis Park this weekend for their Currie Cup match against the Lions.
The Sharks’ captain Lukhanyo Am made no secret of his team’s respect for the Lions in a match that could play a major role in the race for semifinals places.
He also let on that the Sharks are close to where they want to be.
Am has put the good win against the Bulls on Saturday behind them.
“It was important coming back from a bye and the boys were nice and refreshed and it’s a confidence booster for us going forward.
“We’ve been together for a while and credit to the impact players who came from the bench to close the game down for us. It’s definitely a work-on for us for the full 80 minutes. Although we did have a dip early in the second half, the boys managed to pull it off again.
“We’re starting to do the small things right and we’re also starting to build momentum, but were taking it week by week. We’re slowly getting to where we want to be.
“I expect another exciting game,” he said of the upcoming clash against the Lions.
“We know that they are a good side that likes keeping possession and keep the ball moving, so it’s going to be a massive challenge for us.
“Going to Ellis Park, we’ll definitely have to bring our best game. They are a team on the rise, coming back from a good win against the Cheetahs and it is going to be a tight side to face.”
