Sharks signing imminent

The Sharks are poised to announce the signing of a big-name player from France.

Sharksworld found out about this through various contacts we have over the course of the weekend, but at the request of our close friends on that side, have been asked not to reveal the identity of the player until the official confirmation comes out – hopefully later today.

I’m afraid I’m not going to be able to confirm who it is we’ve signed and you’ll need to wait for the announcement. Of course, that’s not to say you shouldn’t give free reign to any rumours you may have heard, or idle speculation and for that reason, I thought I’d give you all a dedicated thread on which to do that.

So just to reiterate, I’m not going to post the player’s identity here, no matter how nicely you ask me!

    In order to generate hits he puts up a thread such as this one whereas someone like Voldy would just post something about race or Butana and bob’s your uncle, 500 posts gauranteed!! :twisted:

  • If its a forward, I would go with Chabal. Waste of money spending on forwards when we need a flyhalf/centre. The mind boggles at ‘Dolf’s ideas…

  • If it’s Ross Skeate then it’s not really such a moer-of-a big deal.

    If he was playing for the Lions we wouldn’t be spending an afternoon wondering and guessing. A few games in the French competition and it’s like we’re wondering whether it’s Superman or Batman that’s coming to play for the Sharks.

    At least both of the aforementioned could be flyhalves ;-)

  • The fact that it seems to be a forward makes a big difference to the “BIG NAME” thing, because if we consider the current state of our backline almost any French-based player would qualify as a “BIG NAME” signing.

  • I would have hoped that the Sharks would win a S10, a S12, a S14, or a S15 for that matter. But I sense that this opportunity is slipping further away, and not coming any closer. Has Smit signed on for next year with The Sharks? Or is he off to les Lios?

  • @175:
    forgot about Kene Okafor.
    Didnt know Sharks made announcements. It is usualy left to the public to establish stuff like this. If its Skeate, then its wasteful expenditure to bother posting a comment!!
