Rumours coming out of Durban suggest that Bok flank Jean Deysel will head to Australia today to join up with the Sharks tour group in Sydney, although there has been no official announcement to confirm this fact.
Deysel has been out of the game since last year’s Currie Cup final, where he aggravated a chronic knee ligament injury that required off-season surgery to repair. Having come through 75 minutes of Friday night’s Vodacom Cup game against Free State unscathed, it seems Deysel is now considered ready to slot in with the Super Rugby group ahead of their must-win clash against the Brumbies this weekend.
Deysel led the Sharks XV to a bonus point victory on Friday night – and also scored a late try to seal the win. His experience will add a huge number of options for the Sharks coaches, with Marcell Coetzee and Keegan Daniel both already having a lot of rugby under their belt this season.Tweet
