Sharks to bring in hooker cover?

If rumours are to be believed, the Sharks may have secured the services of a veteran hooker to do duty in the Currie Cup – on a short term basis – while Craig Burden is with the Bok squad.

The team has suffered something of a perfect storm of late in terms of number 2 options, with the loss (and subsequent injury) of Bismarck du Plessis to the Boks, followed by Burden’s call-up. To make matters worse, Kyle Cooper is currently struggling with a long-term injury and will be out of action for at least another month.

Monde Hadebe had a reasonably good debut against the Bulls last week, but did struggle a little in the set pieces, while having your first-choice under 21 hooker on the bench for the seniors is hardly a great situation either. We understand that the man the Sharks have lined up, while a little advanced in years, is nevertheless renowned for his scrumming and line-out play.

We’ll let you know more if this story is confirmed, or perhaps turns out to be spurious.

  • @Dunx (Comment 1) : I’m not revealing anything until it’s certain, but if you go sniff around a bit you should spot the man in question.
