Ebersohn brothers in demand

The Cheetahs’ Ebersohn brothers, Robert and Sias, top the shopping list of South Africa’s big rugby franchises. With the window period for negotiations now open, there is huge competition to win the race for the twins’ signatures for 2010.

Stephen Nell reports that the Cheetahs have apparently started negotiations to have their contracts extended, but the Sharks, Western Province and the Blue Bulls are paying close attention.

The Sharks are said to have already made an offer for Robert and Sias, while WP could come up with one shortly.

The Bulls are very interested in Robert but there is a strong emotional bond between the brothers and they would prefer playing together. The fact that the Bulls are the Super14 champions could provide an advantage in their negotiations.

In last year’s Currie Cup, Robert managed to establish himself as an excellent outside centre. This year, he played for the Springbok Sevens team instead of the Cheetahs in the Super14.

Sias is one of the country’s foremost young flyhalfs. But the Cheetahs have recently signed Louis Strydom and that could be problematic for Sias’s development as the No 10.

The Cheetahs will also struggle to retain some of their other talented young players as Western Province have already made an offer for the SA U-21 tighthead prop, Coenie Oosthuizen.

There is also some interest in luring the brilliant young flyhalf, Lionel Cronjé, from Bloemfontein to the Mother City. With Peter Grant being used as inside centre by WP, the flyhalf situation in the Cape needs to be urgently addressed.

Sport24 also learned that Stormers captain Jean de Villiers will continue with his plan to further his career with Munster in Ireland.
This move has not yet been confirmed by Munster or De Villiers but the rumours appear credible and WP can’t afford to wait too long.

The WP will use Grant and Morgan Newman on Saturday as centre pair against the Sharks. Both prefer to play inside centre.

Frikkie Welsh, who has often played outside centre for the Blue Bulls, was recently signed by WP and will feature as the right wing against the Sharks.

With Grant and Newman already on their books, the WP’s priority could turn to looking for a top outside centre should De Villiers move. In that respect, Roberts would be a valuable asset for WP.

This budding midfield star has many options and the right decision could give his career a major boost.

Jaque Fourie, who this year made his mark as South Africa’s best outside centre, is expected to continue his career with the French club, Clermont.

  • @try time (superrugby’s kryptonite is SANZAR) (Comment 6) : Its a strategy! That way they retain both, as one will not move without the other, and then look how well the Dup brothers work together! The Ebersons would work well together too! Who knows the other player than his own brother ;)

    We will now have the Dups, Cronjes and Ebersons 6 of 22 brothers (provided they are all in the team) :roll:

  • @Morné (Comment 13) : with the lack of decent flyhalves in sa, why not look at developing these two as flyhalves. they are young enough to learn, and have the skills to make it work. can they really be worse than what is around at the moment.

Besides he has to play TH for the Boks, how fair would it be to make him play hooker for the Sharks? And besides the front row of SMit, Bissie and Beeeeeeeast are really powerfull! You saw what happened to the front row once they took off Bissie against the Lions!

    @robdylan (Comment 58) : Agree with you, but how many Excellent players do we whant to let go, and replace with who? Skipper? Even Burden is not impressive in the Scrum, and lineout. WP are even confident about their pack against ours this weekend! We didn’t look after Barrit, now we have let Frans go, and our Mid field is looking shaky, now we are talking of allowing the best No.2 in the World or certainly in SA to be replaced by a decent player, where do we stop?

    Also heard that Mathew Proudfoot has been working very hard with the frontrow and they are ready to do a demolition job on the Sharks tommorrow.

    That depends on how much was there to forgive in the first place.

    I don’t think Frans is staying – and I’m way over that …but the Sharks would be stronger with him in the mix…especially if he moves to 15 permanently.

    Frans Steyn signed a four contract with Racing Metro 92….will be joining them at the end of the Curry Cup…
    European season doesn’t really cut into the Southern Hemisphere timetable, so I am sure that my superstar with still available to shine for the Bokke.

    Ps….will be supporting Racing M

  • @robdylan (Comment 72) : Oh they don’t whant to stay, now that is a different story, sorry I was misreading, I understood that the Sharks would not renew their contract. This is worrying, I live in dread of a return to 2004/05 :mad:

  • @robdylan (Comment 73) : what else do we have? the guy has skill and now that he has got his head right it should start showing on the field. we still have a tri nations to decide. i am just saying that from day one, 90% of shark/bok supporters have called for him to play 15. he messed up, but now he is where he should be and wants to be (thats the important thing)hopefully he could give sharks fans the return, they put in him.

    Well – considering his age, and the fact the everyone that has come back from playing overseas comes back a better player….it wouldn’t hurt Frans to be France for the duration of P Divvy’s coaching (cough….)
