DURBAN – Sharks lock Hyron Andrews believes his team could not be better prepared for their Currie Cup match against the Golden Lions at Ellis Park on Sunday.
The beanpole lock says preparation was the key to the Sharks beating the Free State Cheetahs last week and it will be key to their hopes of upsetting the log leaders on their home patch.
“For the Cheetahs game we focused all week on exactly what we had to do to beat them, we were very aware of their strengths and had a plan to counter them,” Andrews said. “I never felt in the game that we were going to lose... yes there were times in the game when we were obviously under pressure but we stuck to our guns and, most importantly, to the plan, and that gave us composure.
“The stuff we have been doing in training is about dealing with pressure moments, and that came through in the game. We dealt with the pressure because we were very well prepared.”
