Butch James, who reportedly retired after the Lions’ Currie Cup semi-final loss last week, has made an about turn and seems set on joining the Sharks for the 2013 Super Rugby season.
James told the Sunday Times newspaper that the deal was about 90% sure, but that no deal has been signed as yet. James was quoted as saying that he would like to join the Sharks, where he made his name, as backup flyhalf to Patrick Lambie.
James said that he enjoyed playing at flyhalf during the Lions’ Currie Cup campaign, and would like to carry on and not regret retiring too soon.
