Mostert boost for Sharks

Sharksworld received confirmation yesterday that former Lions lock Gerhard Mostert is a lot closer to fitness than was previously thought and that the big lock is aiming to be available for selection for the Sharks first Currie Cup game.

Mostert, who has had a terrible time with injury of late, confirmed all Sharks fans’ worst nightmare when he dislocated his shoulder within ten minutes of taking the field against the Chiefs in the opening Super 14 game of the season. It was initially feared that the injury would keep the big second-rower out for the entire season, just as it did in 2009. We’ve been keeping in touch with Gerhard throughout his rehabilitation, though and have always been quite confident that he’d make a return during the 2010 Currie Cup.

The news couldn’t come at a better time for the Sharks who, having lost Johann Muller to Ulster, now face the prospect of having to make do without Alistair Hargreaves as he looks likely to make the Springbok squad for at least the home leg of the Tri-Nations. With both Willem Alberts and Jean Deysel ruled out for the opening few rounds, as well as Mike Rhodes battling yet another injury, Mostsert may even find himself pressed into service on the flank, a position he played once or twice for the Lions, with some success.

  • Damn, Alberts, Deysel, Rhodes all out? Need a big hitting No.7. Any others out there? Not convinced Mostert is the man, but he just might have to be!

  • Been tough for Moster being injured so early after making such a “contraversial move”

  • @Dalz (Comment 2) : what was so “controversial” about his move? just coz the guy moved from the lions to the sharks doesnt mean there was a contract dispute!
