Steve Meyer’s a Shark (again)

Steve Meyer has agreed terms with the Sharks and Perpignan have released the former Kearsney schoolboy to leave for Durban immediately.

Meyer, who left the Sharks after the 2006 season has battled with injury since arriving in France and it’s in no small part due to that fact that the Catalan club agreed to his early release. Let’s hope that Meyer has more success in his second stint with our beloved Sharks.

Welcome back to Durban, Steve!

  • No wonder they allowed him to leave immediately, this chap was nowhere to be found in their last match, hopefully he will just provide cover, please play Ruan Pienaar or Monty Du Mond @ 10 :cry:

  • @robdylan (Comment 5) : Rob can we get a pic of this Meyer guy? Or should I head back to the sharks site for that?

  • @Original Pierre (Comment 9) : they won’t be allowed to confirm the signing until midway through the competition. It’s the way Strooli works with the media.

  • I have watched steve play for perpignan on two occasions before, and he looked quite solid. Makes his tackles with good technique. His kicking is also quite solid, i think he will do well at the sharks. The only news i am still waiting for is that the lions release alberts and ludik. If so i think we will have a really good squad. Great mix of youth, experience and those in between. Can’t wait for the action to start :!:

  • You have to ask yourself how good this guy is if a French side is prepared to just let him go so easily.

    We can just hope he has BMT and provides at minimum a solid platform for the back to work off. I won’t expect any flashy stuff just a solid platform. :sad:

  • @Jarson’s (X + V) (Comment 25) : oh yeah… good point. Hadn’t looked to closely… just assumed that Meyer was on the right of that pic. Seems he’s the one doing the turnstiles impersonation on the left :(

  • @Morné (Comment 4) :

    If the rumours were to be believed all the time then Bismarck would have been playing for 100 different clubs by now and that stringbean who used to play for harlequins in Durban would be the best lock in South Africa.

  • @KSA Shark © (Comment 26) : reckon he’s more like insurance at the moment. My gut feel is they want to develop him in the CC.

  • @robdylan (Comment 29) :

    Let’s hope so, I am becoming more positive about our S14 chances with ONE major worry and that being our flyhalf. as you can see from above i have settled on not expecting to much from whoever the guy is other than a solid base for the rest of the backs to work off.

    if it is RP though then i expect a LOT more cos he IS a star flyhalf.

    That’s the guy, he was so good his name slipped my mind.

    Top 14? Top14 schoolgirls?

    Is the same Top 14 that our Bok Captain went over and played for a year so that he could get proper rest? :razz:

    :lol:

    you have to give him credit the guy he is tackling has got forearms bigger than Meyer’s calves. :oops:

    Okay all the ribbing aside. Welcome to the Sharks Mr. Meyer, we hope you are thick skinned and enjoy your stay. :wink:
