Two players who have represented the Sharks at various levels of the game will join up with the EP Kings ahead of this year’s Currie Cup – and presumably next year’s Super Rugby – tournament.
Scrumhalf Scott Mathie, who played for the Sharks at Currie Cup and Super Rugby level between 2006 and 2008, has returned from the UK (where he represented both Leeds and the Sale Sharks) to join up with the EP side, according to his agent Anthony Johnston.
In a somewhat more surpsing development, Beeld reports that former Sharks XV flyhalf Wesley Dunlop has also returned to the Bay. Dunlop matriculated at Grey High in PE before joining the Sharks Academy. He went on to star for the Sharks at age-group and Vodacom Cup level before joining EP on loan for the Currie Cup a few years back. He has since moved on to the Bulls, though, where he went on to play a starring role in Tukkies’ maiden Varsity Cup triumph this year.
It had been widely assumed that “Horse” would be one of the Bulls’ go-to men in this year’s Currie Cup, making the decision to swap Pretoria for PE all the stranger.Tweet
