While all the news yesterday – at least in mainstream media – focused on Sharks hooker Monde Hadebe’s 4-year ban for returning a positive test for a banned substance, there’s a rather more tragic angle to the story that I’d like to focus on instead.

There’s a lot of noise doing the rounds right now regarding the Sharks’ and their backroom dealings. My view is that we have a really big game to focus on, though and should rather be throwing our weight behind the guys ON the field this week. [...]

18 Jul 16 10:16 by Rob Otto (robdylan) | 93 Comments
