So you think you know your stuff about the Sharks? Time to prove it.

This thread contains the questions for Round 5, which is the final round of our Ultimate Sharks fan competition. If you missed out on Round 1, or want some more information about the competition and how it works, check out this post. For Round 2, the link is here. For Round 3, the link is here. For Round 4, the link is here.

So, without further ado, let’s get started with round 5. To enter, simply click here to email your answers through and please don’t forget to include your Sharksworld user name with your entry.

Here are the 15 questions for Round 5, each of which is worth 5 points. Since these are very hard, if you’re not sure, be sure to include your reasoning and I may be kind and give you a half point even if you’re not 100% correct.

1 Name the Sharks prop who passed away in the same accident in which Cedric Mkhize was paralysed.
2 What was Jeremy Thompson’s nickname?
3 How many current Sharks players are twins?
4 What was distinctive about the jerseys worn by the Sharks in the 1997 Super 12?
5 Name the former Bulls flyhalf whose boot was instrumental in helping the Sharks reach the 1995 Currie Cup final
6 Kevin Putt famously signed 13 “no-name” players ahead of the 2005 season. Name any 7 of them.
7 What was the score between Natal and New South Wales in the 1994 Super 10?
8 Name the veteran Lions and Pumas scrumhalf who played for the Sharks in the 2005 Currie Cup
9 Name the Natal hooker who tragically took his own life in 1992.
10 Which particular unhealthy meal was Ollie le Roux’s weakness? (Be specific)
11 In which sport other than rugby did Mark Andrews achieve junior Sprinbok colours?
12 Name the former Western Province flyhalf who made a surprising return from retirement to represent the Sharks against the British Lions in 1997
13 Which Natal school has produced the most Springboks?
14 Apart from Ruan Pienaar, only one other son of a Springbok player has made his Bok test debut while playing for Natal. Who is he?
15 Who was the youngest player to score a try for the Sharks Invitational Team against the Valke in 2010?

We will reveal the winner, as well as the answer to all the questions, on Friday morning. That means that no more entries will be accepted after 5pm on Thursday 16 December.

    Rich – I can honestly say that I have put HOURS and HOURS into this…When I woke up yesterday I still had to do rounds 4 and 5. Started about 11/12 and sent my mail by about 2 minutes to 4 (I thought cut off was at 16h00)…sitting infront of my notebook the whole time!

  • @chaz (Comment 9) : good point Chaz.

    Remember that I have been eating, sleeping and breathing Sharks rugby day in and day out for the last 20 years. I made no promise that the tougher questions would be answerable through googling alone, although most of them were.
