Sabz is a Shark – and that’s no Bull!

Well, it IS called the silly season for a good reason after all!

Hot on the heels of our story yesterday about the defection of a number of the College Rovers squad to Tukkies, comes the news that one of the most promising of those players has had a change of heart. Sharksworld learned last night that popular prop forward Sabelo “Sabz” Nhlapo has turned his back on the lure of Tukkies and the Bulls and has committed his future to the Sharks.

Big Sabz, who attended Highlands North in Johannesburg, before going on to represent South Africa at junior level in both 2006 and 2007 (in the second row!) only recently converted to prop and really caught the eye in the Rovers team that won the recent National Club Championships title. Pat Cilliers’ move to the Lions has opened up a gap at loosehad prop in the Sharks squad, one which Nhlapo is keen to fill.

Sharksworld has managed to secure a frank interview with the soon-to-be 22-year-old prop, so watch this space; we’ll be bringing you the low-down on what prompted him to stay – and why – within the next few days.

  • Just in transit here – on my way to San Francisco, which is actually where Rob thought I was from when we first met, now that I think about it.

    Nary a sign of a sausage in the lounge here. Disappointing. I guess middle-aged German businessmen are health-conscious nowadays. :sad:

  • @chaz (Comment 18) : the best bet is to get yourself to a game at the Tank next year and try catch up with the guys on the fields afterwards. Or join a local supporters club and attend an after-match function next time the Sharks are in your area.
