'We can beat any team we play against' Bosch to Currie Cup rivals

As the Cell C Sharks begin their Carling Black Label Currie Cup campaign this Friday against the Pumas, flyhalf and talisman Curwin Bosch believes that the Sharks are one of the strongest sides in the competition.

The Sharks were forced to forfeit their final Super Rugby Unlocked match against the Stormers which meant that they were out of the running to win the competition. However, the Sharks will take their nineteen log points forward into the new competition.

They finished tie with the Stormers in second but the Stormers edged them on log positions due to their superior points difference.

Bosch, who has been hugely influential for the Sharks, knows that they have the ability to beat every other team in the competition.

"We know that if we perform well then the result will come our way," Bosch said. "It's really important that we stick to the structures that we have put in place and that we stick to the performances that we want to put out there.

"From there the result will take care of itself. I'm pretty sure that if we do perform well every single week we will beat every team that we play against."

The Sharks will go into this Friday's clash with ten players unavailable due to COVID-19, whether it be positive tests or isolation due to contact, which will test their depth to the fullest.

The team will rely even more on Bosch and his ability from the tee and in open play. The talented stand-off is grateful that he has been able to play every game for the Sharks this year.

"To get an extended run at ten has really benefitted me and the confidence that the coaches and the players have shown in me adds to that pressure that I enjoy.

"I enjoy taking on that responsbility and I am grateful for it," he added.

The Sharks welcome the Pakisa Pumas to Jonnson Kings Park this Friday with kick-off at 7pm.
