Cameron Wright has returned to Durban and has been training with the Sharks squad.

The 23-year-old scrumhalf has been with Montpellier in France for the past two-and-a-half seasons, after catching the eye of former coach Jake White and being lured across to the French Top 14 side after the 2014 Currie Cup season. Prior to that, Wright (a product of Hilton College) had played all of his rugby in Sharks colours, starting with under 16 and progressing all the way up, even as far as a single Super Rugby cap in 2014.

Wright played as starting scrumhalf for much of the 2014 Currie Cup and it was seen as a blow when he left, although understandable given the number of other scrumhalves available to the Sharks at the time.

It’s unlikely that Cameron will play any Super Rugby this year, but should come strongly into the selection frame come Currie Cup time.

  • Does Cameron kick with his left or his Wright foot, ditto his pass, is it better to the left or the Wright?.

  • There was of course talks about recruiting the Wong twins instead of Cameron, both of whom are apparently phenomenal up and coming players. As we all know though, two Wongs don’t make a Wright.

    I’m sorry.

  • @GreatSharksays (Comment 10) : there’s nothing to prevent him starting next week, other than the coach continuing to pick Reinach for some reason that eludes me.

  • @GreatSharksays (Comment 10) : problem, though, is that even if he does start next week, he can’t start the week after. Unless any two of Reinach, Claassens and Gouws suffer some sort of misfortune

  • @jdolivier (Comment 15) : I’ll be frank. I want to get rid of both Reinach and Claassens ASAP and start building for the future with our 3 young scrumhalves.

  • @robdylan (Comment 13) : How much of a problem is that really? Gouws needs to spend more time at XV level. Reinach is leaving anyway so who cares? And keep Claasens. Or is there something contractual or in the rules of SR that will prevent this like amount of games played for eligibility this season?

  • I can’t wait to see what a wide awake non-egomaniacal scrummie can do for those speed demons we have in that backline. Wright next to April with Esterhuizen Am midfield van wyk and Nkosi on wings Bosch on fullback with Ward making impact with Louw and or Mvovo.

  • @robdylan (Comment 16) : I support your sentiment, still believe that reinach would make an amazing wing

  • @coolfusion (Comment 17) : need to be contracted and named in the squadnat the start of the season or play at least 3 normal season games. Wright will only be able to play 1 and will thus not be allowed to play in playoff games.
