De Villiers headed for Durban?

Springbok inside centre Jean de Villiers has informed bosses at Irish club Munster that he intends to return to South Africa at the end of the current northern hemisphere season. Having missed out altogether on the 2003 World Cup and played less than half an hour of the 2007 tournament, de Villiers is committed to regaining his Bok place ahead of the 2011 tournament.

De Villiers, having consulted his namesake Peter, the Springbok coach, as well as others in SARU, will know that he needs to be based in South Africa and playing regularly for a local outfit to be considered for the Bok World Cup squad. Although Monster have confirmed that the blonde centre will be leaving them, there has, as yet, been no confirmation about which local side de Villiers will join.

De Villiers has only ever represented Western Province and the Stormers and one would think that his return to the Cape may well be a bit of a no-brainer. I have picked up a number of rumours, though, to the effect that there is little love lost between de Villiers and WP Director of Rugby, Rassie Erasmus. The pair, according to the talk, don’t see eye to eye and this may persuade the player to look elsewhere while Erasmus continues to rule at Newlands. Since Wynand Olivier is the Bok incumbent 12, it would make little sense for de Villiers to consider Pretoria and the Bulls, while the Cheetahs would be nowhere near able to meet the player’s wage demands. That leaves only the Sharks and possibly the Lions as potential options, should de Villiers opt not to return to the Cape.

For the Sharks, landing a player of de Villiers’ calibre would be a godsend, given their lack of experienced options at inside centre. Dick Muir, though, would love to have him in Joburg too and a lot may end up depending on which side is prepared to pay more to lure this big fish into their camp.

  • Talk about clutching at straws Rob. If he had issues with Rassie why did Erasmus appoint him as captain?? I also noted that Schalk spoke about his relationship with Jean and how they’ve been playing together for many years. If he does join the Sharks (which i doubt) I will be gutted!!

  • @wpw (Comment 2) : @wpw (Comment 1) : i concur and amplify both your comments! :D

    A serious case of wishful thinking, imagine the frenzy on sharksworld if someone suggested only from mere rumours that there’s no love lost between francois steyn & the sharks duo of brian van zyl & rudolf straueli and that means he might end up at the stormers where he will pair up jaque fourie.

  • truth of the matter is that Stormers/WP do have a plethora of centres….Newman,Bosch,Grant,Juan de jongh,fourie to name a few…..and a few youngsters knocking at the door ,Sadie and Whitehead. Although WP will be keen….and personally i hope we get him back, i do hope that should a deal not be possible JDV then go to sharks. He is a class act and Sharks really need a 12 of stature…Just thrilled that so many saffas coming home…..word on the street is CJvan der linde will be headed to Bulls and BJ back to sharks….can only assist Boks in the build up to the challenge of retaining the WC2011….a feat never yet accomplished in Rugby.

    I think that Jean will be first choice should he return to WP. None of the players you mentioned is good enough to start ahead of him at 12.

  • @wpw (Comment 6) : it seems to be no-brainer that he would head straight to wp/stormers. though I heard a rumour (and don’t kill me just yet – source not very trustworthy) that WP with little money nowadays – so will they be able to afford him.

  • We need him now really. Though JdV is a WP boy and think his first choice would be to go back there. They do have De Jongh who is a fine player.

    Depends on our cash flow too. How much did we spend getting Hernandez? Alberts, Ludik and Mostert? Hernandez must have cost a bomb really. Also we turned away JF. Kinda stupid now it seems.

    There is a place for JdV at the Sharks and if they are serious should act quick to get him. If we have the cash and Munster would allow it try and buy out of that contract now. We need him now during the S14. Our centres are not up to much.

  • @rekinek (Comment 21) : Yeah, I suppose you never know who to trust. According to some reports Sharks were keen for Dollie as well, but according to van Zyl Dollie was keen for the Sharks, the feeling wasn’t mutual.

    Didn’t Steyn sign a ridiculously long contract? One that went beyond 2011?

  • @Puma (Comment 22) : It really does all boil down to money and cash flow and who can afford him at this present time. We all thought Percy was a WP boy thru and thru but the Sharks lured him with a good offer and he took it. What is interesting is that the Stormers have invested heavily in De Jongh at inside centre, so it might not be a bad idea for De Villiers to go somewhere he can get maximum gametime in the Super 14 and Currie Cup. I wonder what flyhalf De Villiers prefers playing with, Pienaar or Grant?

  • A few things I think about this:
    1. This is probably just wishful thinking.
    2. The Sharks would be so much better with RP at 10 and JDV at 12… Might make them a good prospect.
    3. When is the NH season over? Not something I follow.
    4. JDV has NEVER performed for the Stormers outside Grant/de Waal. Outside Pienaar it will be different. I think he would do better at Sharks than any other team (considering Olivier is at Bulls).
    5. RP will play 10 for the season if he stays fit and that will make a big difference.
    6. I am worried about the Cheetahs on Friday night!

  • Jean had his best ever season in Super rugby in 2008 and guess who was his flyhalf at the Stormers?? Peter Grant of course.
    He also went on to win SA Player of the Year in 2008

  • @Morné (Comment 41) : Maybe but their wings are dangerous and they scored 4 tries and 34 points against the Bulls. I don’t think the Sharks scored 4 tries and 34 points the whole of last season. Do you remember Sharks Cheetahs last year? Cost us a semi-final spot.

  • While I would be sooper upset to see JdV go to the Sharks, I do think its best for everyone involved. Sharks need him, he would get regular game time, and will operate alongside THE Tiger Woods of rugby. Whereas Stormers/WP have lots of centre options that are decent and lots of up and comers that need a chance.

    Regarding Jean, it would be great but yeah, wouldn`t get my hopes up. YOU JUST DON`T TRADE CAPE TOWN FOR DURBAN DAVE . . .

    It would be nice if we could get Butch back though, that`s our biggest issue at the moment, ( oh along with Jake White, a quality tighthead, lock, inside centre and a wing with pace and defense)

  • @CapeShark (Comment 38) : CapeShark, My guess would be JdV would rather play with Ruan. ;-)

    Sharks should look serious to getting him I think. He might not get enough game time at WP. Then it would be exciting to see him with JF next to him though. In the long run that would be good for the Boks. Then playing at the Sharks with Adi next to him and Ruan at FH that is alos good for the Boks.

    We at the Sharks need him now not later. If Sharks have the cash, we should try and buy him out of his contract with Munster and get him for the S14.

    Guys – you lost against the S14 finalists from 2009…

    You lost by one point, and in very unlucky circumstances…

    You lost playing in atricious conditions…

    The Sharks are anything but down and out.

    If the lights did not go out in Bloem the Bulls would have put 80 past the Cheetahs!!!

  • @Puma (Comment 70) : Re – not in my own words, but this is my outlook on the situation…De Villiers has a slightly wider skills set but his FIRST OPTION is run then pass. He uses his deceptive changes of speed to open gaps rather than the ability to off load in tackle or put others into space with sublime timed passes etc.

    Fourie is a strike runner, a wing at 13. He rarely ever passes to anybody. He is effective, highly effective when he gets it right because he is big, strong and runs great lines. But if one doesn’t make space from him, he can’t make it for himself nor others. There-in sometimes lies the problem when they are man marked.

    Lack variety.

    That’s why I liked the JdV/Jacobs partnership in 2008 so much. They were almost impossible to mark because they would interchange roles with ease. Jacobs at top form has the ability to create space and be strike runner with his injection of speed, has a lovely pair of hands too. He play’s like a Maori creative 12 ala Walter Little.

    (PS – I’m not advocating that Jacobs should be playing ahead of Fourie at this moment as he has been off form since B&I series – I’m just stating playing style preference / variety / interchangeability).

  • @Charlie (Comment 81) : Charlie,Yes agree with you there. I thought Adi and Jean were superb together in 2008 but JF and Jean are play well together too.

    If we could get JdV at the Sharks playing with Adi think we would be looking really good at centre, with Ruan at FH. Mvovo intead of Odwa our backs would be far better. Though if we are thinking of getting JdV and then we should try and buy him out of his contract with Munster and get him playing now for us in the S14.

    Just one thing though. JdV is also injury prone and as soon as Sharks buy a player he seems to get injured. Our bad luck it seems.

    We’ll only be realy able to gauge the real Sharks team this Friday, last week was filled with set-backs and the court-case only resolved the day before, and the rain and the novice ref….don’t think any team has ever faced that many set-backs in one week.

    Few teams would have done as well as the Sharks did on Saturday under the circumstances.

The Sharks should recruit a FH that can stay with us for at least 2 Seasons unlike all the Internationals that stay with us for short periods of time. Stick with Ruan and stop wasting him everywhere like they did with F Steyn. Dries Strauss is a never was nor will be “has”

    As for the ref, they should have at least waited ’till he’s out of the grounds before attacking him, make it look like an accident.. :mrgreen:

    Seriously though, most of us at the stands probably forgot that he wasn’t making those mistakes on purpose…Sanzar refs should take some responsibility for throwing the poor guy in at the very deep and stormy end whilst not knowing whether he can in fact take the pressure.

    Show me one team supporter of any team playing any sport in the world that doesnt do any wishful thinking and I will give you one of Robs big grey stars.

    I havent come across any of these supporters wanting to jump ship and support the Bulls, I have read various comments of supporters supporting the Bulls in their games against the foreign teams who the Sharks are to play the following week. Not quiete the same.

  • @FireTheLooser (Comment 152) : Tough call, that to be honest. Better than last week, but will we win, not sure. It will be closer, I think, and if we win, it won’t be big. We will, however, win 7 from 13 this year

  • @FireTheLooser (Comment 157) : I think so too, we lost a lot with Loffie, he had a three year plan, and didn’t deliver. Possibly not entirely his fault, but he kept making promises and excuses. Dick hasn’t made any promises, but with him at the coaching helm, and Kevin as president, there should be improvement. Just need to bring Manie into line now :!:

    I believe that if Loffies firing was handled differently then Fourie, Alberts and Ludick would still be with the Lions.

  • Nee wat sussie, hy sal die een teen die ander afspeel, maar hy bly Paarl en WP eiendom. Dis nie asof hy moes kontrakte copy en paste om weg te gaan nie. Hy is op goeie voet weg en die WP bloed is dik in daai Gim lyf.

  • I dunno about that Rassie vs Jean rumour. If I’d geuss why he went it could have been Fluke Watsons tantrums and money and something new. The man have caracter and he want to do that, tick off and will rejoin Mossie (Jac Fourie) at WeePee. Those two have it all work out looooong time ago.

  • @Salmonoid (Comment 167) : Quite possibly, but I believe that was Manie. I think Loffie had to go, but Manie should have gone too, and after the contract debacle, even more the reason.

  • @Greg (Comment 173) :
    Agree on Loffie having to go – but never on the way it was done, how much damage did that single action do to the Lions. Manie Reynecke does seem to be a common thread in all these latest debacles.

  • Being bigger doesn’t automatically mean you’ll be better at defending. Its all its about the technique, just ask Aplon.

    Ons lotte van die Paarl value bietjie die jersey ook en Jean se pa het nog in die goeie ou dae vir WeePee gespeel, hy en Schalk het dieselfde goeie ou waardes van hulle skool en pa’s geleer.
