Sharks approach Isma-eel Dollie


Written by Rob Otto (robdylan)

The Sharks have apparently offered former WP age-group flyhalf Isma-eel Dollie a contract. Dollie, currently playing in Japan, is understood to be given the offer serious consideration.

Dollie is something of an enigma, to say the least. Highly-rated by Bok coach Peter de Villiers, the diminutive pivot featured regularly in the SA junior sides he coached. At just 1.7-odd metres and 80 kgs, though, Dollie’s appearances in senior rugby have been limited to say the least, with nobody other than de Villiers seemingly keen to give him an opportunity.

Dollie’s frustrating with SA rugby finally boiled over in 2008. When Western Province declined to renew his junior contract, he packed his bags for Australia, where he was forced to settle for a colts contract with the Brumbies. Things didn’t work out there either, though and Dollie moved to Japan shortly afterwards, where he is currently playing.

It seems rather strange that the Sharks should be looking to Dollie, given that Steve Meyer has recently been brought in to contest the flyhalf berth. He’s an interesting player, all right and more than creative enough. Whether his diminutive stature will withstand the rigours of Super 14, or even Currie Cup rugby, though, remains to be seen. Then again, he’s never really had the chance to prove his critics wrong and maybe in Durban he’ll get that.

We’ll keep you posted as this story develops further.

  • Okeydokey :shock: It’s not as if Dollie hasn’t had plenty of opportunities to prove himself at Vodacom Cup level. He undoubtedly does have some talent, but the step up to S14 and international level is just too big. If the Stormers and the Brumbies (where it didn’t work out, even at colts level) can see this I can’t for the life of me understand why the Sharks should be at all interested.

  • The Sharks are scraping the barrel now. Dollie played well in the VC as well as the CC (for Boland) but is too small for Super rugby imho.

  • Are they really offering him a S14 contract tho? Or is it a VC contract to prove himself and make his way into S14.

  • I rated this kid in 2004.

    Problem is he never delivered on his promise.

    It can be down to him not being afforded the trust and opportunity (not to mention guidance) to reach the higher levels he had the talent for, but still, he let himself down.

    I am all for guys proving people wrong, and I still believe you do not outgrow talent so he will still have that potential.

    But as with some chicks in this world, damaged goods seldom make a recovery.

  • @Farlington (Comment 7) : really doubt he’s going to walk straight into the Super 14 squad after languishing in the Yokohama Super Golden Sunshine Sushi league… I’m worried the step up from Top 14 to Super 14 might be a big one for Meyer! Don’t even want to think about young Isma-eel having to try.

    No, I reckon VC and then see what he can do in the Currie Cup. If he comes.

  • hello all !

    if this is indeed correct then it sounds like truly desperate measure.

    we already have Monty, Guy Cronje, Steve Meyer. Some may say that they are not S14 level (not yet, never will be whatever) but why then resort to Dollie. :roll:

Could rather use that money to drown my sorrows cause it’s gonna be a long year!

  • Don’t understand this move! Steve, monty And even Guy fall ahead of him. I don’t see the need. We must now invest in developing monty and steve into the flyhalves we want them to be. Spend money on Draghoender from Maties, the inside centre. I think he has great potential.

  • Ishma-eal wat se dinges???? That guy will only add fuel to the fire on our flyhalf problems. I have seen him play many times and he is by no means a star in the making. We have ruan and steve, but i still say play steve at 12 and if ruan has a bad day on the field, move steve to 10 and bring on murray or swannepoel.

    I am starting the play steve at 12 campaign, whos with me?!!!.
    Does anybody have Plumtree’s number so i can call him and tell him that steve meyer is a 12!!!.
    If we bring in dowwe dollie we will only make matters worse, i think that snor has definitely got something to do with this.

    Dollie!, stay in the Japan, the food there is great!.

  • Now they want to buy Dollie….. it is ridicules !!! He must be the smallest Flyhalf in Japan!! The buying powers at the sharks remind me of the buyers at the Dolphins , they seem to like to buy up players that nobody else wants ( Thomas , Pierre De Bruyn an A. Hall)

    I mean the fastest ball bowled at any Warrior was about 110 km and was by the leg spinner!!!!
    :idea:
    We should really get plum`s number.

  • i don’t get this, the sharks re-hire Hugh Reece-Edwards, a known failure! And nobody raises even an eyebrow; niw the sharks approach dollie, all of a sudden his history of failure must weigh him down & prevent him from joining the union.

    Well what the hell has steven meyer ever done that people are willing to pin their s14 hopes on a no-name brand like him?

    Didn’t dollie play in the same baby boks team with alistair hargreaves? Has alistair ste the world of rugby on fire since then? I seem to recall reading an article on this site that referred to alistair as being “plucked from obscurity into the end of the year tour”, is the sharks academy considered obscurity?

    I’m a bit loathe to defend Dollie but i dont agree with you that he is or was a failure. He didnt even get a chance at CC level while at WP. Look if they didnt rate him why was he contracted for 5 years??
    To say he isnt good enough is not fair as he didnt get a chance to prove himself…

  • @wpw (Comment 73) : “failure” = he didn’t convert all the potential he showed @ u21 level to a S14 career. the same with ashley johnson, bandise maku and the aforementioned hargreaves, all these guys were exceptional @ u21 & won a world cup, so i’m looking at dollie from that perspective.

    Look at this steven meyer oke, he plays 30 min against the stormers and all of a sardine people are saying he should leap frog monty dumond who has been grinding for the sharks behind michalak, ruan & juan martin hernandez!

    If i was in his shoes, i would make the trek to free state permanent! But i bet he won’t because some south african players would rather be 3rd choice @ the sharks (soak in that irrelevant & useless prestige) instead of moving to places where they will get meaningful challenges and most important of all game time.

  • @Megatron (Comment 76) : hang on, now… don’t put words into people’s mouths. Monty himself was very keen on the Free State move, but the Sharks wouldn’t release him because they had no backup. All that Monty wants is regular Super 14 gametime. He’d prefer it to be with the Sharks, but would rather be in the Cheetahs starting lineup that on the Sharks bench,

  • Rob
    If i remember correctly he single handedly beat WP while at flyhalf for Boland. He had a decent CC that year only to be relegated to VC rugby the following year. So then he performs admirably and ends the season as the top scorer in the competition. Does he get a chance at the Stormers (after Rassie publically promises that he will) He was not treated fairly imo.

  • is this plum or adolf? maybe he isn’t a bad option as replacement to odwa. who said he was being bought for the flyhalf position. we have a problem on our wings as well, where the wings refuse to find work. maybe a flyhalf at wing could help. i don’t think this acquisition is that poor.

  • well in megatron’s smooth eliquent way of putting things he supports my argument. we currently don’t have any line breakers at the moment. it is a sad day when the bulls backline is scoring more than ours. so we need to try something.

  • don’t get me wrong here, guys…. I’m not particularly opposed to the Dollie move. I just think it’s a bit of a strange one, given that he has never really delivered on his potential and despite what Wes thinks, really didn’t shine at Currie Cuo level. Then again, maybe behind a pack slightly more dominant than Boland’s, he might prove to be a match-winner.

    His lack of stature is the elephant in the room, though. There’s just no way you can get away with being THAT LITTLE in the Super 14. That’s my view, anyway. Hope he proves me wrong, because I agree he is far more skillful than any of our current backs, with the exception of Pienaar and Lambie.

    Whats your beef with Hugh Reece Edwards? Guess what, if it was not for him they would not be talking to Dollie. In your view, does this now somehow taint Dollie?

  • @Farlington (Comment 100) : i am hoping the sharks administrators are doing their jobs properly. at the end of the day it is their money to spend, and stupid decisions mean poor results which mean empty stands which mean the kak gaan….

    as for are we getting worked up, sharks fans always get worked up. it is part of supporting a team with so much promise but doesn’t deliver.
