Gerhard van den Heever's great try against the Lions

Another contender for Super Rugby try of the weekend was this individual effort from 21 year old gas-man Gerhard van den Heever of the Bulls. They beat the Lions 24-20 in what was a closely contested affair at Ellis Park on Saturday night.

The Lions, who now have wealthy investors and subsequently a few new signings, put in a strong second half performance but couldn’t quite manage to get through the defending champion Bulls, who had a healthy dose of Springboks in their ranks.

It was uncapped youngster Van Den Heever though who scored the try of the game, this great individual sprint effort from 60m out after a poorly chased kick ahead by Elton Jantjies.

The talented wing spotted a gap and went for it, burning up the turf while gliding through hapless Lions defenders, who will know too well in future that you can’t give a guy of his ability so much space. We saw that last year against the Highlanders.

"Every Bulls try is special. One is not worth more than the other to me, as they all contribute to the team effort," Van den Heever said later.

"It is nice to start the season like this, but it is my job to score tries, after all. We talked before the match about the chip kicks from Elton (Jantjies) and I was ready for that. When I started to run, the gaps kept opening up so I just kept going," he added.

Time: 01:46

    The sad thing is they're probably not 14 year olds like they sound, they;re probably fat guys with no girlfriends who are in their twenties or thirties and get a breif thrill out of making childish comments on the internet, I imagine it distracts them from the dreary nature of their lives.

    Anyway, in regards to the try, this was one of only a handful of tries in this game.

    If you hoenstly believe that Super 14 has bad defence, you really know very little about rugby.
    Obviously if this competition is producing all the players that play for the Wallabies, All Blacks and Springboks, it must be far superior to anything the NH produces.
    After all the NH teams are clearly behind the SH.
    In the Super 14 the attacking play is simply better, in virtually every way.
    The defence is as good.
    If it wasn't why would NH clubs constantly poach SH coaches, defensive, offensive and head coaches? Why would they constantly poach players?
    Why would their national teams struggle so much to score points against SH opposition.
    The truth is that NH attack is typically predictable. It's often just one out hit ups, or a single backline with no decoys.
    Easy to defend.

  • You can defend Super Rugby by pointing to all the wonderful SH international players, but I think at a league level, Aviva Premiership teams play better all-round rugby. This is a SUBJECTIVE opinion, berate it if you like. The only way to test it OBJECTIVELY would be for a team like Wasps to go on an Ozzie tour, but in this day and age it wouldn't happen. Would be awesome if it did though...

  • The difference is that I make valid points to defend the Super 15 competition. I welcome any disagreement or argument you might have, that's the point of these boards.

    I virtually never single people out and insult them, it's just sad.
    It's the internet, it proves nothing.

    From a logical point of view the SH has the edge in terms of their rugby.

    There's not alot in it these days though, and there are aspects of play in the NH that are superior. Scrummaging is a real focus up north, and there's alot SH teams can learn from that.

    But maybe if there hadn't been 175 comments denigrating Super rugby I wouldn't have bothered defending it.

  • The only reason all blacks won all their autumn internationals is because referees are petrified of giving a decision against the "Almighty" all blacks.

    Plus Richie McCHEAT!

    Also the Heineken cup is much better tournement than the super 15. You show me highlights from two super 15 games and they'll be exactly the same but with different colour shirts on. The heinieken cup pits different styles of play agaisnt each other from all across the continent, for example the fast free flowing attacking rugby of say a Clermont or a Toulouse against a grind-it-out forward orientated team such as a wasps or a leicester. Thats without mentioning the expansive rugby of the magners league teams.

    Henieken cup brings unpredictability and prestige to rugby. Super15 is boring and too predictable. Im not disputing the SH teams are better or worse than NH but in my opinion SH rugby is superior to NH all you have to do is look at the previous world cup winners.

    But the super15 doesnt come anywhere close to Heineken cup

    Talk shit its my opinion

    And I'm not saying the top 3 or 4 NH teams wouldn't find a place there - in fact I'm quite sure a team like Toulouse would be genuine contenders - but fact is the overall average is much higher. You get loose ends, like the Lions or the Rebels, but all in all, top notch rugby.

    Super rugby has very little to do with international rugby. It is a competition with some scintillating attacking play and some shite defence. I like it, it's different, but there's no need for it to be constantly compared to NH club rugby when Super teams never play Heineken teams competitively.

    It's a ridiculous thing to say.
    What do you base that on?
    Anything factual?
    Of course it has alot to do with international rugby.
    When the Crusaders played the Blues last week, there were 22 All Blacks in the starting line ups.
    Do you think those players don't know how to defend at Superugby level, but suddenly become the best defenders in the world when they get to international level.

    Thw whole defence is shit thing is NH fans trying to make themselves feel better by denigrating SH rugby.

    Logically it makes no sense, and it's extremely annoying when someone makes an argument that's obivously false.

    Actually no we don't (from a Scottish supporter) however we did draw with Oz which we will take as a huge moral victory, and we did beat the saffas, which let's face it, is one hell of an accomplishment. But ofcourse you SH bunch cannot have the good grace to say 'congratulations Scotland' no, you have to fire excuse after accusation after excuse.

    The general issue the NH fans have with SH fans is that you guys think your teams are gods gift and are unbeatable, then when you have a less than perfect performance and the opposition has a better performance you do not posess the good grace to be a good loser. You have to act like a bunch of 5 yr old children and generally take what we all have learnt about the good nature of rugby right out of the game.

I'm sad to say the it appears the 'SH fans' who act like tools on here seem to live under some sort of false perception that they are untouchable. Which leads the NH fans having to scream at the top of their lungs to get a word in about some win that happened in 2003....

    I think most people can see that the SH rugby tends to get the upper hand on the NH bunch, however doesn't that mean the SH fans should be encouraging the play from the NH... As a bigger brother encourages a smaller brother?

    I think what is equally as sad is that YouTube videos seem to have about 80% less c*nts from either Hemisphere.

  • Some of you people are so one eyed its pathetic. To be clear I am English however some of the drivel spouted here is unbelievable...... what planets do you live on?!

    For starters if that try was scored by a player in a NH club comp no-one from up North would bring up poor defense (whether or not it was actually the case), this is just the same nonsense that gets reeled out every time a good S14 try is scored. Yes the defense wasn't the best in this instance however the focus should be on the electric pace and skill of a 21 year old winger.....

    To prove my point, huge amounts of praise was given to England for their skillful attacking performance versus Italy, and rightly so. However very little focus was on how atrocious the Italian defense was at times, it was schoolboy stuff really. Anyway it reeks of double-standards and jingoism.

    And this myth that the Super14 rugby is loose and lacking good defense is nonsense. The defense on the whole is excellent and very tough however when international calibre teams (Blues, Crusaders, Reds, Bulls) come up against the the weaker sides (Lions, Force) big scores do happen, the same as in international rugby...... Just look at what All Blacks did to the Lions 2005 and England 2008 in New Zealand! These teams got hammered because the All Blacks were on another level and not because they were playing ‘basketball rugby’ whatever that term means! Sure some S14 rugby can be a bit fast and loose at times but that's what happens when both teams focus on quick ball, speed and have huge attacking ability combined with good playing conditions...... shame on them for not slowing it down and playing proper rugby ;-) Now if you argued that the Heineken Cup is a more interesting and colorful competition due to the countries and playing styles that’s another thing.

    Finally, it is impossible (completely!) for a weak domestic competition to produce strong international teams..... if the s14 was defensively rubbish then the same would be true of Auz, NZ and SA. Just ask any of the International players from the Northern Hemisphere if this is the case! I can't be bothered to dig up any stats on tries conceded in recent years, but trust me we don't score many. The reason is that the SH players in the S14 are consistently exposed to the highest quality attacking rugby even by international standards.

    And although the SH doesn't produce all the best players it can't be doubted that the teams are CONSISTENTLY better than us up north. Some call this arrogance on their parts, I call it fact. Just look at world rankings (top 3-4 consistently with only Fr/Eng challenging) and world cups won (6 of 7), which is why most world 15's are dominated by players from the South. In my opinion let’s just focus on improving ourselves so we can beat them on a consistent basis……… until we can do that we all sound like idiots.

Pace and vision, very dangerous combination.

  • If you saw the whole game, you would have seen that the defence from both teams was actually pretty tight. The Lions sometimes struggled to stop the Bulls maul, and the Bulls in turn found themselves scrambling to contain the Lions counter attacks.

    But this try was scored completely against the run of play, so it is no surprise that the defensive line wasn’t properly organised. Van den Heever got a good bounce, combined with a bunch of tight forwards in front of him, and he took full advantage to score a great try.

    Along with the Blues Crusaders game, this was certainly the game of the first round. Plenty of drama, great second half fight back, long sweeping moves with good continuity. Not a bad way to start off a fantastic competition.

    I wish some of the HC fans here would watch more of the S15 – you’ll see it’s very entertaining. Just as I enjoy watching as many of the HC games as I can. It’s not a pissing contest – just lots and lots of rugby.

    By Anonymous Johnson, at February 23, 2011 9:11 pm  

  • That's really not the case Johnson, the whole point is that van den Heever has very deceptive pace. He's extremely quick, and makes other plays look slow.
    The reason the defence was disorganised (hich it was), is because the Lions were attacking, and hadn't formed any defensive line (they were scrambling to defend after a backline move backfired).
    But this was a fairly low scoring game overall.
    The point is that this young winger exploited the staggered defence, found the gaps and used his pace and changes of direction to glide thru.

  • Jono, i totally get that he exploited gaps...my point is the shocking line up from the lions created huge gaps...

    And the number 15...watch him...yes he may have been outpaced in the long run, but he didnt try...

  • Just had another look, the fullback mayeb could have put more effort in, but it wouldn't have mattered, he would have been easily outpaced from where he was, and it wasn't his man at that point.
    But yeah, he did give up.

    But with the line, it's not a defensive line, it was an attacking backline, so there's always gonna be gaps, they weren't set up defensivly.

  • I agree, i was just disappointed to see gaps like that...

    I guess it was early in the match, and early in the season...these will tighten later i guess.

    but yes, it was never going to be as easy to defend as a defensive set up...

  • To be fair to the Lions, they were absolutley terrible last season, so this effort, only going down by a couple points to the S14 champs, aint half bad.

  • It's really disappointing to read some of these comments.
