The Sharks have announced that quite a few of their squad have extended their contracts with the union. This news comes at a good time as the build up to the semi final against the Blue Bulls intensifies.
This speaks volumes of the spirit in the camp especially as many of the players have had offers from other unions with reportedly quite lucrative payment attached to them. Particularly exciting is the contracts given to younger players who understandably would have had contracts offered to them from other unions and it is great to see the Sharks retaining these great players.
The contracted squad for 2011 onwards looks, as it stands, as follows:
Tendai Mtawarira (new 3 year contract), Dale Chadwick (new contract), Wiehan Herbst (new contract), Julian Redelinghuys (new contract), Jannie du Plessis, Eugene van Staden
Kyle Cooper (new contract), Craig Burden, Bismarck du Plessis, John Smit
Anton Bresler (new contract), Jandre Marais (new contract), Alistair Hargreaves, Gerhard Mostert, Ross Skeate, Steven Sykes
Keegan Daniel (3 year contract), Ryan Kankowski (3 year contract), Lubabalu Mthembu (new contract), Willem Alberts, Jacques Botes, Jean Deysel
Conrad Hoffman (3 year contract), Charl McLeod (3 year contract), Ross Cronje (new contract)
Jacques-Louis Potgieter (3 year contract), Patrick Lambie (2 year contract), Guy Cronje (new contract)
Meyer Bosman (3 year contract), Adrian Jacobs, Stefan Terblanche, Luzuku Vulindlu
JP Pietersen (3 year contract), Lwazi Mvovo (2 year contract), S’bura Sithole (new contract), Lionel Mapoe, Odwa Ndungane
Some players are still negotiating their contracts hopefully we will be able to announce their re-signing sooner rather than later. Things are looking good for the future of Sharks rugby for years to come.Tweet
