Well, since the cat is out of the bag a lot sooner than I’d thought, let’s just confirm this one and end all the speculation!
This morning’s Natal Witness has confirmed that former Stormers and Bath hooker Pieter Dixon has signed with the Sharks for the remainder of the Currie Cup season, as cover for injured hookers Bismarck du Plessis and Kyle Cooper, with Craig Burden also unavailable due to Bok commitments.
Dixon was spotted at Sharks training yesterday, where he seemed to be having a look around and perhaps having a medical. He is expected to take full part in training tomorrow and may even feature against the Cheetahs on Saturday.
Dixon is 34 years old (4 whole days younger than yours truly) and attended Maritzburg College before leaving Natal to play in the Cape.Tweet
