Twitter has come alive this evening with the much-anticipated news that Brad Macleod-Henderson will coach the Sharks in the upcoming Currie Cup season.

Hilton College confirmed the appointment via their official twitter feed, saying

“@Hilton_College – Congrats to the 2 year former 1st XV coach and old boy Brad Macleod-Henderson (BMH) on his appointment as Sharks head coach for Currie Cup!”

CEO Jonh Smit confirmed himself, obliquely tweeting a picture of himself with College headmaster PB Ducasse, saying:

“Passed by Hilton College today to thank them for Brad, hopefully the start of good engagement with our Schools in KZN”

Welcome to the Sharks, Brad! Looking forward to a great Currie Cup campaign.

  • So will twitter be the new pr manager for the Sharks :|

    Don’t know the guy, but let’s hope it’s going to be good. Interesting to see Smit’s comment about “start of a good engagement with KZN schools”? What’s he aiming to achieve?

    Eish, yet another thing to speculate about. :roll:

    I was actually wondering how BMH’s appointment was to assist the process of building these relationships with KZN schools?

  • Sorry I’m not jumping up and down with excitement at our new signing. Good luck BMH, hope you turn out to be an exceptional scoop for our new CEO. Can’t deny I was rather hoping for someone the calibre of Graham Henry or Robbie Deans to take charge of the Sharks, but I will be the happiest sharks fan out there if BMH makes me eat my words.

  • @robdylan (Comment 10) : It’s ridiculous how often they use other articles and pass it off as their own! I have made comments about it on there previously, but they prefer the head-in-the-sand pat ourselves on the back approach…what a bunch of Derick Kuun’s!

    As far as the appointment goes…I’ll wait and see. Little surprised by it, but Smit must have seen enough to warrant it. BMH was a pretty good flank for the Sharks in his day, so we know the love for the jersey is there…lets see if he has the know-how to take the boys forward. With Venter guiding him, he will learn quickly.

    I wonder if he will be the coach for the currie cup, and someone else appointed as head coach for Super Rugby?

  • Lets read whats printed. BMH has been appointed Sharks Coach for the CC, nothing more. Other assistant coaches have been appointed to help.Brendan Venter has been hired to DOR, I think thats what it is. Maybe he is busy with other stuff, maybe he needs time to disentangle hinmself to give more time for the Sharks, right now, we DONT know. So, lets go with what we have and support it. We asked for change, we got it, we dont have the right to dictate. We are for intents and purposes, fans.
    I believe in the Sharks and believe JS to be a coup. Let give him space.

  • Well for John Smit’s and BMH’s sake I really hope the Sharks do amazingly well in Superrugby and CC over the next few years, including at least a few trophies, because if they don’t all this adulation and good wishes is going to turn into hate and facebook campaigns demanding their firing. Shark supporters have shown themselves to be a fickle bunch and nothing less than winning is good enough for us.

  • Look Smit probably though he would have had an opportunity to let Plumtree down lightly and maybe in so doing keeping him on until the end of the year and give him a proper send of, like one would have hoped to do with a coach of 6 years (and 2 Currie Cup titles), but unfortunately his hand was forced and Plum probably found out earlier than he should have and then threw a little bit of a tantrum for not being offered another contract.

    I would have or still would like John or anyone from the Sharks clearing up exactly what it is they wish to accomplish with BMH’s appointment. Is he a standin until they find better, was he always in their plans, but maybe just as an assistant coach, so whoever will be taking over for the SuperRugby will then have him as one of the assistant coaches. Or were they in so much of a bind that this was the last option left so quickly?

    If they want us just to be excited that an ex-player with very little coaching credentials was hired, they’re making a big mistake. Look I’ll give the guy a chance and wait and see what he does in the CC, but if he’s hired for SS 2014 too, I wouldn’t expect much more from him than what Plumtree did. In fact, Plumtree may then have been a better option. If you put the two coaches next to each other for any other SS team and ask them which coach do you want to be your coach for SS 2014, I can’t see that any one of them would pick BMH over Plumtree.

    So we’ll see what John has up his sleeve for the future. I’m trusting that is is more than hiring an ex-sharks player.

  • @Letgo (Comment 21) : I think this could work, but only if Venter was a very hands-on DOR (very much like Alan Solomons at the Kings).

    What is worrying me is that Brendan will be juggling a number of roles including a medical practice in Cape Town, consultant to Sarries, etc.

  • I like this appointment. He was assistant coach to the under 21′s, so not just a high school coach. It’s just for the CC and I think it’s a damn good idea to look at local KZN coaches before we go shopping abroad for an old ballie and pay him millions to try to implement his “vision”. BMH surely knows what he’s doing, and with Venter and Everitt there we know the tactics will be solid.

    I feel a lot more comfortable with the homegrown feel of our coaching structures at this moment than I would have felt with an overseas dude coming in and bringing his supporting staff with him. We’ve tried that and it didn’t work out too well. Lets develop local talent on the coaching front if possible, and then look further afield should this not work. Buying in coaches every few years goes in direct contradiction of Smit’s plan of building a style of rugby that trickles down from the head team down to all the squads.

    When this plan comes off, and I’m feeling confident it will, and other young coaches see the sharks are more than willing to promote in house, we should get some quality guys willing to spend time with the youngsters knowing they stand a chance of becoming currie cup/super rugby coach one day.

  • @The Hobbit (Comment 27) : I agree there mate and very true what you are saying. What worries me is JS is not engaging with the press either. Announcing via twitter who the next sharks couch is, is not on. We need answers about who is coach of what exactly and for how long etc. Why he was appointed and what made him better than other candidates. I almost get the feeling he is not willing to engage with the press about these issues…

  • @PTAShark (Comment 24) : I could care less where the coach comes from! It’s always a coach with some previous connection with the Sharks. How long ago did the Sharks appoint someone that didn’t play for the Sharks at some point. I’d like to see a professional appointment, and I’m not saying ex-players can’t be professional coaches, but the trend continues with the Sharks and the best coaches historically have not been ex-players.

    Let an international coach come and coach the Sharks. Who cares? If he’s going to get us the SS trophy and more consistant SS performances year after year, I’ll take him over any “homegrown” coach.

    I was excited when I heard of Venter’s apt as DOR, but we will have to wait and see how that pans out. Hopefully he can extract himself of some of his other duties so that he could spend meaningful time at the Sharks.

    This thing that we don’t know whats going on and hear via a twitter feed from the headmaster at Hilton collage that BMH is CC coach is bs, we don’t even know how long or on what basis or anything.

  • Ahh the critics are already out, those know it alls who sit on there couches telling everyone how it should be done and how they would do it, meanwhile their only achievement is filling couch space. There have been a few worthwhile comments 24, 21 & 17 to name a few. The critics are also probably the same people who lambasted the choosing of Jake White as Springbok coach in 2004. He was merely a successful U21 coach what did he know about coaching the Springboks? Too big a jump from U21 to Springbok coach then!!! Maybe the same jump from school boy coach & U21 assistant coach to Currie Cup Coach one could argue. After watching quite a few school boy games this year I did notice that the outgoing Sharks coaching team could have learnt a bit from the innovative positive play by some of the schools. Judge on results not on your own ignorance.

  • @markp (Comment 34) : You forget that JW had years of experience as assistant coaching in super level and CC level. You also forget that it took him 4 years before the boks was any good anyways.

    Now let me ask you, did BMH “apply” for this job? no he didn’t, he was given it. That to me says allot already. To me the mind set is wrong from the start. I am not saying he might not be any good, but what I am saying someone who gets given something normally don’t take as good care of it as someone who works for it as they know how hard it was to get it in the first place.

  • @markp (Comment 34) : Huzzah! Well said. I feel quite positive by the moves made by the Sharks thus far, and them having a huge press conference while it’s knockout Super Rugby time would feel quite silly to me. I liked the twitter announcement and feel we are going to see a lot more interaction from the Sharks on that format. It was done low key since the rest of the country is still worrying about Super Rugby I think. They only confirmed what we all knew in any case and I think they only did that so that we know there is movement on the coaching side behind the scenes.

    I support the Sharks, Smit, BMH, Venter, Everitt and all the rest 100%. They will give us more information closer to the CC season and that is fine with me.

    Rob, any chance of wangling an interview with Smit or one of the coaches some time? It would be a great coup for the site!

Answers we would all like to know, no one knows why he was appointed, for how long, who was other candidates, if DOR is actually DOR. These are only a few questions that will already make a huge diffs to the public and their feelings towards the new coaches. Is having the public speculate a good way forward?

    Do you know whether this is a permanent head coach position for Brad, or whether he is just the interim coach for the CC?

    Im sure Smit said that the search for next years head coach would be ongoing during the CC.

    I get the feeling that the CC will be used for Everitt and BMH to get used to rugby at the top level, after which a ‘big name’ coach will be unveiled for next years Super Rugby comp.
    With Everitt and BMH being his assistants.

  • @Uli (Comment 43) : Communicating breaking news via social media is part and parcel of our modern lives. I know speculation sucks, but since we’re out of the running of SR maybe they are taking a breather. Smit & Co just finished a three day strategy session and I’m sure some info will be released soon on the way forward. Who knows, maybe they are still negotiating with somebody to be head coach for SR under Venter and are awaiting the completion of that before commenting on the structures? Maybe they want to get all their ducks in a row before holding a press conference so that they can give clear answers. Holding one before they are ready would result in a load of “don’t know” answers and that will piss you off even more.

  • I think we should wait a little while. I’m sure things will be cleared up closer to the start of the tournament BMH was actually appointed for. My feeling is directly after the SS final we’ll see some movement from JS in letting the public know.

    It’s fine asking for answers but we’ll also have to be willing to wait for these answers.

    In the mean time, it’s fun to speculate though.

SR is now only of interest to me in that entertaining rugby is played. On the other hand I want to know what is happening to the team I support who at the moment can give the “head in sand” impression, and this in a time of uncertainty when changes are happening and clear, concise communications should be a priority…..not getting those comms gives an impression of crisis management.

  • The key for a Sharks revival is really Venter, and to a lesser extent the head coach.

    Case in point HM and Ludeke – when Frans left the Lions, I doubt anybody was sad to see him go. Yet he is now officially the most successful super coach in SA (having 2 trophies in his cupboard).

    I suspect it had more to do with Meyer’s work as DOR behind the scenes than Ludeke’s coaching abilities.

  • My handle is Disgruntled Shark because I, like everyone on here, has a massive love for the team. I’ve just been disheartened by the arrogance of the current administration. Crusaders, Bulls, Saracens… all the successful unions have a CULTURE within the union that makes the best young players sign up & never want to leave.

    Let’s fill the union with people who have a passion for the jersey & give home-bred players, schoolboys and coaches a chance as our first choice. BMH is all 3 of those and he deserves our full support, rather than try bring someone in who sees only a paycheck

  • “@Hilton_College – Congrats to the 2 year former 1st XV coach and old boy Brad Macleod-Henderson (BMH) on his appointment as Sharks head coach for Currie Cup!”

    Oops. NOT head coach as it turns out.

    An important lesson to be learnt here along with all the player movement speculation.

    WAIT FOR THE OFFICIAL ANNOUNCEMENT!!

  • @Uli comment 37 “You also forget that it took him 4 years before the boks was any good anyways.”
    JW was appointed coach before the 2004 Tri Nations. The Boks won the 2004 Tri Nations the first since 1998, the Boks won the Team of the year for 2004 and JW won coach of the year for 2004. Hardly 4 years more like a couple of months.
    Also should be ” were any good anyway”
