‘The Sharks have changed my life’


Written by Andre Bosch (KSA Shark ©)

There was hardly a dry eye in the house on Saturday night as the Sharks celebrated long and hard, but one of the more emotional among them was Frederic Michalak, who leaves the Sharks this week for his native Toulouse.

“Durban and the Sharks have changed my life,” the Frenchman said.

“My reason for leaving France was to have a new life experience, but I could not have imagined it would work out quite as positively as it did. I am a changed person. I have grown. I had never spent time outside of my home town, and I came to Durban unsure of myself.

“But South Africans of all cultures, black, white, English and Afrikaans, opened their hearts to me. My time here has been very special indeed. I was very anxious to repay the Sharks by making a good contribution in the final.”

Mike Greenaway writes in The Mercury that Michalak did that and more. He was one of the stars of the show.

He kicked superbly and cleverly, varying grubbers with deft chips and nudges into space, while his swift, precision passing created the space for Frans Steyn’s crucial second-half try.

But it was Michalak’s contribution in defence that had fans singing his praises late into the night. Nobody who was in that seething stadium will ever forget the sight of Bryan Habana in full flight down the touchline in the first half, with Michalak chasing fiercely, every sinew straining in effort until he was close enough to launch himself into a valiant ankle-tapping dive that destabilised Habana sufficiently for Frans Steyn to then make the smother tackle and save the day.

It was one of the most important moments of the match, and a massive psychological victory for the Sharks. If Habana had scored an early try, thoughts would inevitably have turned to the heartbreak of the Super 14 final.

Michalak said the occasion of the Currie Cup final was probably the finest he had experienced in rugby.

“There is no place like this in rugby,” Michalak said, pointing to the celebrations on the outer fields.

“I am just so happy that I could experience this.”

Will he ever return?

“I have signed for three years for Toulouse. After that, who knows? It would have been good to play more rugby for this team,” he said.

“It is one of the happiest and most talented I have played in.”

  • We revived LaCroix’s career in Durban and if the french coach has watched Michalak he will realise that he has just found a new first choice half.

  • @KSA Shark © (Comment 1) : Great performance from him on Saturday. I felt that he recovered well after the injury and was pretty consistent for us throughout the season.

    I guess we need to find another French flyhalf now… :mrgreen:

  • yeah before fred came to sa, he was a super sub in the french team. now after the grooming and growing he has done here i won’t be surprised to see him as the number one flyhalf for france. i think he has improved a lot over the last year.

  • fred may have sacrificed some money for this experience, but the experience he got in durban will up his pay in france. he came here learnt the elv’s under two top class coaches. got some game time in dry weather. overall it was win win for the sharks and for fred. good luck. unless you are playing the boks in the 2011 rwc final.

  • If there was ever any doubt, which I believe there was, about his defence, he certainly buried those doubts on Saturday.

    No spectacular tackles but I can’t recall any missed ones. That is all I look for in a defender. minimum missed tackles.

  • @KSA Shark © (Comment 6) :
    There were definatly doubts about his defence – but not from me, well not since the Boland game at Wellington where I kept a beady eye on him and where he was fearless in the tackle. No, his defence cant be faulted.

  • Thanks Fred – thanks for really playing with everyhting you had, in every game.

    I really take my hat off to this guy, and I really hope he receives the recognition he deserves for taking himself outside his comfort zone, and making himself a better player.

    The Frogs would be stupid not to give him the 10 jersey based on what he has shown.

    Viva la Fred! :lol:

  • @Big Fish (Comment 15) :
    To tie in with what you say – it would have been very easy for Fred to have remained in France after recuperating from his injury suffered in the Super 14. I’m sure it must have been very tempting to have done so particularly as he would be coming back for the Currie Cup, which at that stage must have seemed as a bit watered down from the Super 14. Good on him for honouring the contract and showing us what he could do.
    His emotions and feelings speak volumes for what all at the Sharks have been doing in making his stay in Durban special – and that includes all the fans.
    Thanks Freddy.

  • Terblanche had an outstanding season, finishing as the pick of the fullbacks in the Currie Cup. Even at 33 years old he more than held his own against the finest players in the tournament.

    His pace has been questioned, but while he certainly doesn’t possess the gas he did in his prime (during the Nick Mallet era), he can hardly be classed as a liability in this regard.” {the funny thing is that he ran around habnnnnnnnnnna on saturday:} :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

  • There once was a religious young woman who went to Confession. Upon entering the confessional, she said,

    ‘Forgive me, Father, for I have sinned.’

    The priest said, ‘Confess your sins and be forgiven.’

    The young woman said, ‘Last night my boyfriend made mad passionate love to me seven times.’

    The priest thought long and hard and then said, ‘Squeeze seven lemons into a glass and then drink the juice.’

    The young woman asked, ‘Will this cleanse me of my sins?’

    The priest said, ‘No, but it will wipe that smile off of your face.’

  • Michalak was my man of the match….his marshalling of the backline was excellent over and above his own play.

    Rumours in the stands on Saturday were that Frans Steyn is looking to go to the Bulls….don’t know if there is any truth in it.

    Sharks are marketing through Verimark next season:

    Are you tired of being a Bulls supporter because your knuckles hurt from dragging on the ground?
    Tired of all the pink and mountain jokes associates with being a weepee?
    Is the humiliation of having all your young players heading for Durban too much for you Cheeatahs supporters?

    Well you too can be a Shark’s supporter…..sign up now and not only will you be supporting a stylish team but that’s not all, we will throw in being the supporter of the Currie Cup Champs at no extra costs

    We live on big compounds, ours has about 180 houses on it. pretty much self contained within a perimeter. So we have great fun letting the kids go trick or treating, etc. The residence go all out with some great coffin getups and doing their houses up as dungeons.

    And Halloween stuff are openly available in shops etc. but the locals do not celebrate it or go trick or treating.

    The game was truly amazing.

    Fred was impressive on and off the field.

    My bet says he’ll be back to the Sharks after the next RWC.

    Have a piece written, just need to get it typed up. Right now it looks like I’ll get it done tomorrow unless I get a second burst of energy tonight.

    As one who didn’t fly half-way around the world to make the game… looking forward to reading that…

    Must have been an awesome experience…

  • @Milissa (2008 CC Champs!) (Comment 85) : i know, i went to joburg and i realised just how beautiful durban is. i am pleased you had a good time. oh how did you manage to wangle tickets? pull in some favours. not that i am complaining, i’d rather have a die hard sharks fan get tickets than a cow supporter.

  • Ok while Im being nasty – do you remember why Luke Watson wanted out at the Sharks and wanted to go to Province. It was because he wanted to be part of a team that would win some trophies. Ive waited a long time for this but I knew it would happen some time or other.
    Luke – :razz:

    irony of the matter is that if he hadn’t gone there they might actually have won something by now. :evil:

    And thankfully he left us or we might still have been waiting after 12 years. :grin:
