Monty on the move

Sharksworld has reliably learned that Monty Dumond is at an advanced stage of negotiations with the Cheetahs, in a move that would see him take over from Jacques Louis Potgieter as their first-choice flyhalf for the 2010 Super 14.

Dumond, who made great strides with the Sharks in this year’s Currie Cup is looking at a deal that would see him play for the Cheetahs in the Super 14, before returning to Durban for the Currie Cup. It’s an arrangement that would make a lot of sense, since the dependable pivot is unlikely to see much gametime with the Sharks with Juan Hernandez in the picture.

In other news, it appears that the Lions are still determined to play silly buggers when it comes to Willem Alberts and Louis Ludik – both having been named in that Union’s provisional training squad. Kevin de Klerk has picked up the baton from Manie Reyneke and his frankly nonsensical ramblings about the pair in a recent interview with Jan de Koning of Rugby365 shed no real light whatsoever. Sharksworld’s info remains that both players are dead-set on representing the Sharks in 2010.

The Lions, meanwhile, have included two Sharks loose forwards in their squad, with both Thabo Mamojele and Warren Whiteley named in the group. It’s tempting to speculate about pots and kettles at this point , but we’ll say no more about this matter until we’ve had some confirmation from the Sharks as to whether the players have been released.

Waylon Murray is another player who has been repeatedly linked to both the Lions and the Bulls. We’re waiting for the Sharks to get back to us on exactly what Murray’s contractual position is, but an article on Keo suggests that he is still contracted until the end of the 2010 Super 14 and any potential move could only happen at that point. The Sharks coaches haven’t helped matters at all with a perpetual selection merry-go-round in midfield, leaving players such as Brad Barritt, Frans Steyn and now Murray uncertain as to their long-term future with the Union. One feels that, for Murray, the upcoming Super 14 will be vital. Should he manage to establish himself as the Sharks’ premier outside centre, it will probably persuade him to tear up the other offers currently on his table.

So, in summary, nothing all that new. The Sharks will probably need to make do without Dumond, but should have Murray, Ludik and Alberts all available for the Super 14 next year.

  • That interview on rugby365 was a bit of a joke. The part about Alberts & Ludik anyway. He kept harping on about how everyone has signed ‘new’ contracts and all the contracts are now watertight, blah, blah, blah. But then says they are still awaiting ‘documetation’ or something from Ludik & Alberts. :lol:

  • This is a disaster. Monty was the only ray of hope in the sharks team this year. Didn`t he take care of the bulls for us . . . ?
    Add to this Murray, you cannot blame him for leaving having to play second fiddle to Strauss all the time!
    Who`s next? Maybe Charl McLoed I think.

So will only believe any rumour of any kind once the Sharks squad will be announced. Which, if Streauli should be believed :???: should be soon. I hope :shock:

  • If monty’s move is just for the S14 then it will benefit The Sharks. He did have a few great runs this year and needs to get more exposure at higher level.

    And why do we have such a problem with centre’s leaving and wanting to leave?? I don’t think we have an abundant of quality centres available yet we mess the ones we have around. WHY???

    Also is someone at the Sharks camp counting their chickens before they hatch?? Seems like the Lions are adament that Alberts and Ludick will stay with the Lions union. Mmmm me thinks we need facts rather then speculation.

    The Sharks camp have never said that Alberts and or Ludick are coming to the Sharks.
    Those rumours come from blog sites like this and obviously carry some weight, but its unfair to lay the blame at the Sharks camp.

  • SA rugby unions needs to get with the programme. Agents and players as well for that matter. If a player wants to leave, in all but exceptional cases he should be allowed to do so, providing a transfer fee can be agreed.

    The way the Sharks are going about the Brussow transfer is how it should be done imo.

    Daar is ‘n special op whiskey by Teasers van half agt tot twee
    En ons almal is daar om ons groot vriend se meisie te sien
    Sy maak haar debuut op die dansvloer na jare se wag
    En Hendrik haar boyfriend staan reg om te kyk wie lag

    En ons drink whiskey hier by Teasers
    En Snoekie dans so mooi
    En ons almal se speedometers,
    Is al in die rooi
    Want jy’s pragtig, Snoekie,
    Al is jou broek nie aan
    En net daar besef ons Snoekie is ‘n man

    Nou vir Hendrik was daai aand
    ‘n bittere pil om te sluk.
    Want vir maande het hy elke naweek
    Vir haar vasgedruk
    Vir maande was Hendrik ons groot vriend
    Se hart baie seer
    Want sy’t altyd gesê dis haar sleutels
    Of haar geweer.

    Nou drink ons brandy
    Hier by Presley’s
    Want Hendrik het gevra
    Dat ons asseblief moet padgee
    Want ons kan ons nie gedra
    Brandy en Cola
    Ons kyk vir Lola
    En sy dans net so rof
    Maar Hendrik sê sy’s donners onbeskof

  • Pieter van Zyl:

    Agtien een en negentig Nieu-Seeland Oos het ‘n referee ontstaan
    Hy is geprogrammeer om ‘n Bok te keer
    En te bedonner waar hy kan
    Sy kop is van hout
    Dit reageer op ‘n Springbok se fout
    En die Bokke raak benoud
    Die ref voel fokkol vir die groen en goud

    O referee referee my arme broer
    Gaan sukkel met almal
    Maar pasop vir ‘n broer
    Want met Klipdrift en Coke
    Word hy daagliks gevoer
    En as ietsie hom pla dan staan hy reg om te moer

    Pieter van Zyl Potchefstroom
    Het ‘n Bokke bond gestig
    Hy het vas besluit ‘n ref sal skyt
    Wat sy hand vir ‘n Springbok lig
    Brandewyn op die trein
    Het die manne gebruik vir die pyn
    En Pieter se groot vriend Steyn
    Het hom gedare dat die ref verdwyn

    O referee referee my arme broer
    Ons het jou gewaarsku
    Pasop vir ‘n boer
    Want ‘n boer het daai ding om ‘n ref te wil moer
    Veral as sy vriende hom met brandewyn voer

    Sestien twee en vyftig, Securicor
    Het die Bokke bond gaan lê
    Piet van Zyl het sag gehuil en vir sy liefste vrou gesê
    Pak al jou goed, ons gaan verdrink in die Bokke se bloed

  • rugby365′s Currie Cup Team of the Tournament:

    15 – Stefan Terblanche (Sharks):
    He may not have many years left of his distinguished career, but 2009 was certainly one of his better years. There was strong competition from Joe Pietersen, while players like Riaan Viljoen, Fabian Juries and Hennie Daniller also had a look-in.

    14 – Danwel Demas (Free State Cheetahs):
    He will probably not be universally accepted, but he has come along in leaps and bounds this year. There was plenty of competition for the No.14 jersey – Gio Aplon, Francois Hougaard, Chris Jordaan, Gerhard van den Heever and Dewald Pretorius.

    13 – Juan de Jongh (Western Province):
    This was a ‘no contest’, with De Jongh well ahead of his rivals.

    12 – Wynand Olivier (Blue Bulls):
    He may not have played the whole season, as a result of national call-ups, but he still did enough to edge strong competition from among others Barry Geel and Doppies la Grange.

    11 – Lionel Mapoe (Free State Cheetahs):
    Not only was he the best and most consistent of all those who played on the left wing, but Mapoe also featured strongly on the right wing. We decided he should wear the No.11 jersey. Bryan Habana didn’t feature in enough Currie Cup games to beat off the youngster, while Gio Aplon was the best of the rest.

    10 – Morné Steyn (Blue Bulls):
    There is nothing we can say about his match-winning abilities that haven’t already been said. He edged several quality rivals, despite not playing a full season. Naas Olivier, Jacques-Louis Potgieter and Juan Hernandez are amongst those who lost out.

    9 – Sarel Pretorius (Griquas):
    Without doubt one of the unlucky ones to miss out on Bok selection for the year-end tour. A pillar throughout Griquas’ campaign. There’s a long list of quality scrumhalves, but Jano Vermaak, before his injury, was probably the best of the rest.

    8 – Ashley Johnson (Free State Cheetahs):
    His selection for the Boks’ year-end tour was justified. Willem Alberts, Ryan Kankowski and Luke Watson all performed admirably.

    7 – Dewald Potgieter (Blue Bulls):
    He also featured strongly at No.8, but we felt his best performances were at the side of the scrum. Pieter Louw, Jean Deysel, Duane Vermeulen and Frans Viljoen were amongst his strongest competitors.

    6 – Francois Louw (Western Province):
    He was at the heart of an impressive Province campaign. Heinrich Brüssow, Cobus Grobbelaar, Deon Stegmann and Johan Wessels are all in a very impressive group of openside flanks.

    5 – Anton van Zyl (Western Province):
    Victor Matfield is without peer in the world, but he simply could not make up the lost ground when he came back in the last few rounds of Currie Cup action. Van Zyl was of a consistent high standard throughout the season, with David de Villiers the best of the rest.

    4 – Chris Jack (Western Province):
    What a revelation his performances for Province were. Just a pity he could not stay to the end. Steven Sykes was his closest rival in terms of consistent performances throughout the season.

    3 – WP Nel (Free State Cheetahs):
    Also rather one-sided in this position, with Brok Harris a distant second.

    2 – Tiaan Liebenberg (Western Province):
    It was a close contest in a two-horse race, with Adriaan Strauss also having his best ever domestic season. Two players who were very unlucky not to have gotten a Bok call-up.

    1 – Wian du Preez (Free State Cheetahs):
    The competition was fierce, but he showed why he was a Bok tourists a few years ago. He deserves another shot at he Green and Gold. Wikus Blaauw and Coenie Oosthuizen pushed him all the way, while a few others also put their hands up
