I’ve just had an awesome idea.
A few days back, I got in touch with Andries Strauss to discuss his feelings on playing his last game for the Sharks in the Currie Cup Final. Well, we all know what happened and what a memorable final fling it was for Dries, as his defensive performance ensured that the Sharks walked away with the golden cup this year.
Well, it’s obviously hell of sad that Andries is leaving the team, but I feel that we, as fans, haven’t always given him as much respect as he deserves. I know that mere words cannot ever really make amends, but let’s try. Let’s use this thread to collect messages of appreciation, support and good luck for all that Dries has done for the Sharks and for his future career.
I will leave this running for a few days an send the messages on to Andries, which hopefully will serve as a nice memento of his time at the Sharks and let him know just how much we, as fans, appreciate his contribution. Don’t hold back, Sharks fans. We are saying goodbye to a part of our family.Tweet
