They say that the third time is the charm and when it comes to our coverage of Western Province centre Tim Whitehead’s move to the Sharks, we can finally put this one to bed after already talking about it twice.
There was the initial rumour back in September, followed by our own unofficial confirmation a few weeks back. As of last night, though, the mainstream media reported the story, with Beeld confirming that Whitehead has joined the Sharks on a two-year deal.
The player himself confirmed the rumour on Twitter last night, telling Sharksworld that he is “really looking forward to the next few years in Durban”. Sharksworld will try to catch up with Tim for an interview once he arrives on the East Coast, but in the meantime, we’d like to take the opportunity to wish him a very warm welcome to the Sharks family.Tweet
