And not just for a Holiday.
According to a report on OFM Sport Lionel Mapoe has been scooped up by the Sharks. Earlier in the season reports were doing the rounds that the Cheetahs’ flier was being courted by the Bulls after it became public knowledge that his contract with the Cheetahs was almost non-existant.
According to OFM Mapoe has already reported for duty in Durban. This is good news as it means he will be available for the Sharks in the Currie Cup already.
Mapoe missed most of the Super 14 season after he dislocated his shoulder and tore the cartilage in Round 6 of the tournament. At the time his injury was set to sideline him for four months, meaning he would only be back in action in late July.
Jan-Harm van Wyk, Mapoe’s agent was not prepared to comment. Cheetahs big-wig Harold Verster was however available for comment ,but all he had to say was that Mapoe had a binding contract with the Cheethas.
The 21-year old Mapoe himself could not be reached for comment.Tweet
