Sharks sign Ross Skeate

The Sharks this morning confirmed the signing of former Western Province lock Ross Skeate on a two-year contract, effective 1 July.

The 27-year-old Skeate, who stands just a fraction over 2 metres tall and weighs 114 kg, left South Africa at the end of the 2008 season to join RC Toulon in the South of France, after a career that saw him represent Western Province and the Stormers a combined 80 times. The former SACS schoolboy came up through the ranks of Western Province and Springbok age-group rugby, representing South African Schools in his matric year (2000) and the South African under 19s and 21s thereafter.

His highest representative honours have come playing for the Emerging Springboks on their tour of Romania in 2007.

Skeate will add some needed bulk and experience to the Sharks second row, which is looking a little thin following the departure of Johann Muller to Ulster. While Gerhard Mostert is expected to return to fitness soon, the possibility of Alistair Hargreaves having an extended run with the Springboks during the Tri-Nations leaves the Sharks in the unenviable position of having Steven Sykes as the only fit, experienced lock in the Currie Cup squad and it was no doubt felt that a player of Skeate’s experience would be sorely needed.

Welcome to Durban, Ross. We hope you have a successful stay.

  • @Richard Ferguson (Comment 4) : But we have bigger problems than at lock….this money could have been spend on a decent no 10 or 12…not that I don’t think Ross is a good player but why another lock?

    Sykes, Mostert, Hargreaves , Skeate…where does this leave the youngster that are coming through the so called ranks?? :roll:

  • @pokkel – I hear what you saying, and you are right! But we can ask the same questions about the so called backline mess? We have Monty who has just been nominated as Vodacom Cup player of the year, yet we always looking past him to someone else.

    I feel sorry for the youngsters coming through! They supposedly joined the best academy in SA rugby, but they don’t get the experience. Its kak, to put it plainly.

  • Sykes and Hargreaves have both been with the Boks before, and they might be again, if either or both gets a call up or injuries, we will be without experience in the 2nd row and the youngsters will get blasted if the team doesnt do well.

  • Not a bad signing at all.
    Welcome Ross.
    Its obvious that the under 21 / Vodacom Cup locks aren’t deemed to be good enough for Super14 yet so they brought in a man from the hardest scrumming league in the world as cover. If one of Mostert, Hargreaves or Sykes had to break down in the Super 14 we would have have been seriously exposed.

  • Having lost your former captain and someone with 150 odd caps, you can’t expect to replace him overnight with a youngster. The Sharks are one lock injury away from a crisis and if you want a world class team, you have to have world class players.

    Imagine the sharks doing a gaffie on the young VC locks, they’d be hung, quartered and draw and some smart alec would have suggested perhaps in hindsight, someone like ross skeate would have been a good purchase…..

    The Stormers regularly lose players and then they buy top players (eg Fourie, Habana, Chris Jack, Anton van Zyl, Nakelivuki, Schalk Brits, Luke Watson, Duane Vermeulen, Ricky Januarie, to name a few.

    Their good buys got them to the final of the S14 this year.

    Think big people.

  • @Uli (Comment 27) : Have to agree with you – in a recent Q & A session with Heyneke Meyer on the Bulls site he had some insightful responses to some of the :?: Below is his view on using young players and “blooding” them -
    Heyneke answered:
    Jy is 100% in die kol. As ‘n speler nie 100% van die tyd 100% kan gee nie, kan hy nie vir die Bulle speel nie. Die model wat ons gebruik is om voortdurend jong spelers in die span in te bring en van die senior spelers toe te laat om hulle laaste paar jaar oorsee te gaan speel. Sodoende verseker jy dat die span nie as ;n span oud word en hulle honger verloor nie. Alle spanne praat altyd van hoe jonk hulle is en dat hulle bou, maar mens besef nie hoe jonk is die huidge Blou Bul groep eintlik nie.
    Met leiers soos Fourie en Victor wat sal doodgaan vir die Blou Bul trui sal daar nooit ‘n gebrek aan honger wees nie.
    Omdat ons juniors in dieselfde strukture oefen, skroom ons nie om hulle kanse te gee as dit lyk óf ‘n senior nie sy kant bring nie.
    Dit was gelukkig nog nooit nodig nie.

    The coach/management has to create that hunger for the jersey…

    And now they signed him for 3 more years…

  • @Morné (Comment 35) : The hunger you can see in the Bulls youngsters when they take the field. There is real passion in Bulls rugby that I haven’t seen with the Sharks in many years. I’m fed up with the Sharks way of doing things and it’s a pity I’m such a commited supporter else I would have started looking elsewhere for a team to support…but come the CC I’ll be right behind the Sharks again. The Bulls were down and out 7-8 years ago and I hope the Sharks will eventually learn from their mistakes even if it does take a couple of years.

  • @Pokkel (Comment 36) :
    Heyneke again – :lol:
    Toe ek by die Bulle begin het, was dit my grootste wens om ‘n vol Loftus te sien (toe was die gemiddelde getal toeskouers so 8000 per wedstryd). Dit het later gebeur en ek kan net al die ondersteuners bedank vir die ondersteuning wat hulle in die jare aan my en die span gegee het. Daarom is dit vir my ‘n plesier om met julle te gesels. Ek dink die Bulle kan nog lank ‘n krag in wêreldrugby wees, maar dit is belangrik dat ons voete op die grond bly en ons nie in ‘n gemaksone verval met al die sukses nie. Ander unies probeer ons navolg en ons moet hard werk om voor te bly.
    Toe ek begin het by die Bulle, het ek wel baie dinge, veral wat die afrigtingspan aanbetref, op Amerikaanse voetbal geskoei omdat hulle al 100 jaar professioneel was. Mense het vir my groot afrigtingspan (wat spesialiste ingesluit het) gelag, veral toe ons verloor het. Nou is dit egter ‘n norm wêreldwyd.
    Om voor te bly kyk ek heeltyd na nuwe tendense uit alle sportkodes uit. Ek gaan later vanjaar VSA toe om weer na voetbal en basketbal te gaan kyk. Hoewel dit verskillende sportsoorte is, is daar baie te leer uit die kondisionering daarvan, veral die rehabilitasie waar hulle ver voor ons is.
    Video-analise is ‘n ander aspek waar ons baie kan leer.
    Die Bulle was die eerste span om ‘n Aussie Rugby League se verdedigingsafrigter in te bring (in 2000). Ons gebruik ook Aussie Rules se tegnieke om balle in die lug te wen. Jy moet dus altyd kyk na nuwe tendense as jy wil voorbly.

  • Well I am tired of the Sharks management ways thats for sure, if I get a bulls jersey I would at least be able to wear it after each final….
    Its really sad. but why do we even have an academy? I personaly think there are way too many fingers int he Pie at the sharks. Head masters and coaches making calls dependant on the school you go to and the the kind of rugby you can play.
    When I was u/16 our team was in the top 5 in SA and we didnt even have one KZN player in our team that year, now I mean that says allot about the choosing of players in kzn.. Only two teams who beat us was Paarl Gym(Jean de villiers was playing in that team)and Affies.

  • @Richard Ferguson (Comment 50) : I don’t think so I have been a supporter since I was about 4 years old. The thing is I want them to do well but the management have other ideas, only they will know what they are. The thing is they are trying to get a quick fix the whole time and that just doesn’t work in the long term and makes more damages that actually fixes to the whole team and team environment. That is why the Sharks are loosing so many players, they just not happy with the way things have been going there.

    The sharks need to build a legacy if they want to be at the top for ever..

    Now everyone is a Bulls supporter. Easy to support a winning team. A true supporter remains throughout.

    And it could be worse. Imagine having to support the Lions?

    In a lot of the match reports in the local papers he gets a good review.

  • @Richard Ferguson (Comment 53) : That’s very easy. Both my parents are Freestaters, but I grew up in Durban. My first team is and always will be the Sharks, but my second team is the Vrystaat. Not weird, surely?

    But back on the signing of Skeate. We probably did need an extra lock and welcome to Ross – anyone who wears a Sharks jersey is worthy of support.

    However, I can’t help wondering WTF is going on in Stroolsie and the other “manager’s” noggins. There doesn’t seem to be any clear direction in buying players so as to fit into a specific playing pattern.

    If we decide to become a 10-man side we need a big pack with enforcer-type locks and a kicking flyhalf and if we’re going to play the phases we need a distributing flyhalf and decent centres.

    The CC is around the corner and we have buggerall.

  • It all boils down to your career path! And that’s where the Sharks need to sort out their story once and for all.

    @Dalz (Comment 58) : I agree, but that is when the Sharks actually started playing rugby again. Then Plum and Rudi stuffed it all up again by not trusting them. If a coach doesn’t show his trust in a player then the player looses confidence in what he does and can or cant do on the field, that’s what happened to Murry.

  • OK, so we are looking for backline players – so who is available to buy, ie, has the credentials, is out of contract within 6 months and is available for at least 2 years.

    At the end of the day its a professional game now, so home grown does not count for anything anymore (sadly) Its all results driven, just look at some of the comments above to see what some fans are willing to do because of perceived poor results.

  • Sharks lineout has not been as a strong as most of the other South African sides in recent times. I always want them to be better in every aspect of the game. So this will help in an area we’ve been weak.

    However, the backline needs serious investment now. Either through dicarding older players and giving time to younger players. Or buying better players. Or both.

    The other thing we need is a real competent, ‘world class’, backline coach.

    Plumtree has shown he can produce an excellent pack. Near test level (though perhaps not all Bok level), when they are all fit.
    His key failing has been in management, coaching and selection of the backline.

    I want to see us sign a centre and a flyhalf. Bosman being one of them. Not AP or someone on a one year deal.

  • plum is a fantastic coach his man management and forward play knowledge is unbeatable. The problem to me lies in the backline coach there is no flair or exciting set moves just boring carry it up style. Look at WP and the set moves there backline has its exciting or better still the bulls backs interplay, they are renowned for forward play but there backs still look slick i think we need to invest in a proper backline coach and toss out chris boyd and let bashford gain some more experience. Plum needs someone who compliments him like dick did.

    the only reason they could have forgiven him is for the fun that they can extract from contact sessions at practice.

  • So is Skeate back for good or is this just an effort to try and make the world cup squad, only to leave again afterwards. If the latter, we might as well sign overseas players.

    Just proves he is not forgiven yet, not part of the inner circle. ;-)

  • @MysticShark (Comment 157) : I am also wondering what his motive is. I battle to beleive that Skeate would consider himself in with a shot when it comes to Bok selection. He has Matfield, Bekker and Hargreaves all ahead of him at 5…

  • The girlfriend story is mostly false. There was other more serious things. So I would stop talking smack about the guy. Lets see how he does in the jersey and then we can start criticizing him.

  • Oh no, another HUGE scoop regarding a Steven Meyer comeback :roll:

    How the heck am I supposed to get over him dropping the Sharks 3days before the S14 when I keep hearing over-inflated stories about his much anticipated return just for every one to go quiet when it turns out to be another load of ghunk :!: :!:

  • @Letgo (Comment 167) : What is the whole big secret with that anyways. It was never explained so to the normal Sharks supporter he let the team down and he let all the supporters down. He basically walked out and gave no one an explanation. If he had problems he shouldn’t have made promises he couldn’t keep.

  • @robdylan (Comment 177) : By the look of Letgo’s posts she must have already had an exclusive with Steven Meyer seeing as she seems to know everything about his former and current rugby and relationship situation. :roll:

  • I’m thinking the next person to CLAIM anything regarding Steven Meyer must first be sent for a polygraph, then a psych evaluation, also be forced to make all their phone records available for a forensic audit. Also be put under 24 hr surveillance, all of which to be publicly made available on this very site.

    I’m still rather upset by this boys’ little stunt, and hearing all these so called insider info on this matter really just irritates the puke out of me….if you want to make empty claims, at least have the guts to reveal your flaky source so as to avoid anyone confusing it for an actual story. :lol:

  • Dude, we’re all pretty much in the dark here trying our best to piece the story together as best we can. Goodness knows we’ll get nothing official out of the Sharks on this one

  • @robdylan (Comment 183) : I know news on the story has been hard to come by, and I know I have been giving you a hard time on this subject (all in good spirit I assure you), but when Letgo has a go at everyone on the subject and claims to know the truth, I say give us all the so called scoop, not just the elect few.

    If anyone wants to get rid of the existing rumors, starting a new one is hardly the way to do it. A bit of integrity regarding the revelation of player signings is not too much to ask.

    And reviving the ‘I know who’s going to be the FH for the Sharks’ rumor has really gone far enough, especially when it involves Steven Meyer and no substantial evidence. Then rather give us more info on Andre Pretorius’ fitness test.
