Sharks NOT yet named for Saracens

In the interests of keeping all of our readers informed, I’d like to point out that the “Sharks squad” to play Saracens that has appeared on multiple websites over the last 24 hours is not the final group that will travel to the UK.

The 25-man man squad, which first appeared on the Saracens website and was subsequently picked up by local media, raised eyebrows for a number of reasons: for it excluded the likes of Keegan Daniel, Pat Lambie and Tim Whitehead, for one thing, while including Ryan Kankowski, who is currently playing in Japan. Perhaps most concerning, though, was the fact that it had not come from the Sharks via press release (the way their team announcement always do), nor had it been put up on their official site.

Furthermore, none of the players seemed to know anything about it.

We’ve had confirmation from the Sharks this morning that this squad list is not official and just a “preliminary squad”. As soon as the final, official squad is announced, it will be made available via the usual channels.

  • It’s almost as though the Sharks have shown some serious intent to ensure that their number 1 fan site receives the correct information before any of the other sports tabloids.

    So it would be wise for those tabloids to check their facts with Sharksworld before publishing their garbage. :twisted:

  • @robdylan (Comment 5) : Well you guys also broke the story re Brynard Stander ages before those other so-called journalists.

    If they want the scoop on all matters Sharks, best be advised to get it here, fresh off the presses. ;-)

  • @FireTheLooser (Comment 6) : Pretty much this, just a pity that some of the ‘journalists’ that do reuse content from here don’t always quote SW as the source.

  • Something did smell a little fishy. Funny how the other journos didn’t pick up on the fact that there was no Lambie, Keegan or Tim. not even in the comments did it come up.

  • @robdylan (Comment 15) : Over here in “middle earth” the’re talking about the so called team in about every news flash. On another topic must say the beard’s looking good with the beany and the glasses, almost like a film star.
