Days of serious corrections on the training field, as well as mental analysis, await the Sharks after their woeful performance against Griquas in the Currie Cup on home soil on Saturday.

Instead of delivering on their promise to bolster top place in the standings, coach Sean Everitt’s inconsistent side let themselves and their fans down badly by falling 37-27 to their gutsy visitors at Kings Park, despite the Kimberley outfit suffering five yellow cards on the day.

Another showing like that in coming games will heavily affect the Durban side’s title hopes in the Carling-sponsored domestic competition.
