SHEXIT!

While neither move has been officially confirmed by the Sharks, our information is that centre Paul Jordaan and lock Tjiuee Uanivi have both agreed moves to European clubs and will join a number of other Sharks players in leaving Durban at the end of the current Super Rugby season.

Jordaan, having a fantastic season after nearly a year out injured, is perhaps unimpressed at missing out on any form of national recognition and has thus penned a three-year deal with French side La Rochelle. The move had been widely reported in the French press and since the player’s fiancee is discussing it openly on social media, I see no reason for Sharks fans to be kept in the dark. It’s a real blow for Gary Gold, who has few other options in the tricky outside centre channel and must now, surely, turn his mind to trying to make S’bura Sithole successful in the position.

Uanivi, who was signed from Brive in France after a good World Cup for Namibia, has seemingly failed to make the necessary impression. He was loaned out to the Kings even before the season began, only to be brought back to Durban when Ruan Botha was injured. 20-year-old Hyron Andrews was preferred in the Super Rugby squad and the Sharks have clearly decided to cut their losses now; Uanivi will join the Glasgow Warriors ahead of the new European season.

With young Tristan Tedder on his way to Toulouse this week, and the likes of Marcell Coetzee, Joe Pietersen and JP Pietersen all confirmed as leaving already, the Sharks are facing the sort of exodus that tends to stymie plans to maintain continuity from season to season. Disappointing, but it’s the way the world works these days, seemingly.

  • S’bura Sithole is no centre.
    Sad to have Jordaan go, we will just see more and more of this every year.

  • These exits just highlight even more the poor performances of the Sharks XV as these guys are going to have to step up. Cant see us making use of the chequebook as there is no CEO in place and well i think that chequebook is probably a bit thin at the moment. Another worrying CC ahead….

  • @Uli Boelie (Comment 24) : very true. Whitehead was very underrated for us, he got our midfield working well. So sad to see Paul leave.

    What’s our future back three/midfield.

    Mjekevu, Mvovo, Bosch back three
    Esterhuizen, Sithole midfield?

    Who in the U21/U19 should I look for?

    If it’s an SA schools problem, then all of SA is in trouble….

Take a look at the teamsheets of the u19′s that played last weekend and see how many of them were playing for other Provinces – WP had 4, Bulls, Lions, EP etc all have KZN schoolboys from last year playing for them.

    No rapid decline there. Is there another metric somewhere that would show this? Or were you talking about just the Sharks situation?

  • @Quintin (Comment 29) : The current pair we have/had could really have developed into a good partnership as they have different but complimentary aspects of their play. So sad to see Jordaan leave. I dont think Sithole will combine as well with Esterhuizen…maybe ill be proved wrong. Perhaps this is also why Heimar has stuck around knowing his old school mate is leaving.

  • @SheldonK (Comment 28) : at the moment the AB’s and England has a playmaker at 12,but surprisingly not Australia they have that big Fijien guy at 12 think his name is creby or something,with the basher thing I agree it’s better to have a playmaker at 12 than a basher but if a basher gets over the A-line every time and manages to offload it’s just as good as a playmaker .

  • @schrodingers cat (Comment 49) : Yes the ABS and Eng, Aussies try Kervi at 12 which backfired in the first 2 tests so they replaced him with Tamooa in the last test and looked a lot better. Think the Aussies will persevere with the playmaker at 12- they would have picked Beale if he was fit i reckon. Dont get me wrong there is more than 1 way to play but what i have noticed is that teams identify a basher at 12 and therefore target him taking the ball into a ruck and their loosies are in there to win the ball and can fully commit as chances are he isnt going to pass and a good tackle negates an offload. Reason i like a good passer/playmaker at 12 is that it means defenses have to be a bit more passive as if they fully commit a good pass/kick from the 12 will throw out the defense alignment big time. The more there are options the harder it is to defend is the basic idea.

  • @SheldonK (Comment 47) : I think your right about Sithole and AE combining. It just frustrates me that Sithole hasn’t played a whole lot of high level rugby this year and most of us has been calling for him to get some minutes almost every game this season. Now that we know that PJ is leaving, we are sitting with our fingers stuck in our asses because we went the very safe route of playing Odders ahead of him, albeit not on center, I’m just referring to game time.

    @The hound (Comment 51) : You won’t get anyone that agrees with you more about FS playing on inside, the way the Sharks and more Boks treated him (positional merry-go [email protected] yourself and SARU’s contract balls-up). He is a world class player, you have to look after them, they don’t grow in the fruitful world class player orchid.

  • @SheldonK (Comment 50) : one of the best 12 Australia had was a playmaker (Matt giteau),so i agree with you it just gives a team more options.look at Wales for example they continued with Robers running a out to in line trying to get over the A-line and it obviously didn’t work the only time it will work is if you could offload in contact . With a quick player running of it

  • @schrodingers cat (Comment 59) : Yeh look im a big fan of a playmaker at 10 and 12. However, a bigh basher in the Jamie Roberts/Esterhuizen mould can work but only if there are dummy runners running similar lines to him which means defenses have to hold and he can get over the advantage line and there are then guys there to clean and create quick ball. Sa teams attack looks tame because very often there is only 1 realistic option…where as the All Blacks will have 2/3 guys that could realistically run onto the ball and attack.

  • @SheldonK (Comment 67) : just a curious question.Are there such personality clashes in the bok setup in terms of cultural differences like example the Bulls being a predominantly Afrikaans Union and other provinces like sharks being more English and therefore players not mixing together that well in the bok setup, the AB all have one culture and all understand each other .I presume when Heynike coached the Bulls and the boks he probably only spoke Afrikaans in change rooms etc. and therefore picking players his comfortable with working ?

  • @schrodingers cat (Comment 73) : Look its possible but i cant say for certain. Also dont assume teams like the Sharks are english speaking…there is a big afrikaans culture in the sharks team and even throughout the clubs etc. Same can be said of WP side. So it could just be personality clashes with players believing the game should be played in different ways where as in new zealand every team pretty much plays the same way from high school all the way through.

  • @schrodingers cat (Comment 77) : I think there is an effort to move towards that now but in the past definitely not and even now there are big differences.

  • @SheldonK (Comment 78) : do you think the Bulls are ever going to go back to the style that worked for them in the past?

  • @schrodingers cat (Comment 81) : I dont think they have the players to execute that style. It required a very good and aggressive pack and educated boots at 9/10. They have different players now. Thats one thing SA coaches are not that good at- adapting the game plan to the player skills they have.

  • A real loss to see Jordaan going, he has really been good this year, but all the best to him
