I don’t have too much info on this, other than confirmation that JP Pietersen has signed a 3-year extension to his Sharks contract.

Despite a number of bigger money offers from the likes of the Lions and the Bulls, the Bok winger has pledged his future to the team that made him a household name. Great to have you with us for another 3 years, Polla!

  • Not quite of the Rob/Brad variety, but he does hold a special place in my heart. :oops:

    One of Dick Muir’s babes, remember – part of the renaissance post-Putt.

    We have lost a few already – Brad, Steyn, Waylon, Ruan – would hate to lose another.

  • Great stuff! Go Sharks!

    I must admit that when I heard a VERY BIG money offer I was worried we would lose him. It is good to see a player put other things above money – it doesn’t happen very often.

    Agree with this : I have always rated JP, amidst my mates not thinking so.
    Campo told me once that although he thought JP was one of the laziest wings he knew, he had the potential to become a great wing.

    Needles to say, JP was well taught by Campo.
