The Sharks have decided to keep us going through December by drip-feeding information regarding player contract renewals. It’s a pretty good way to keep the interest simmering and prevent a glut of good news all on one day, followed by nothing.

Looking for betting sites in Australia?

I’d encourage you guys to keep an eye on the Sharks Twitter feed and Facebook page throughout the festive season to keep up to date with these renewal announcements as they come. Each one is accompanied by a nice little video too.

I’ll update this thread periodically as new names are added to the list.

Extensions announced so far are as follows:

Mzamo Majola (Prop) – 2020
Akker van der Merwe (Hooker) – 2019
Courtney Winnaar (Utility Back) – 2020
Cameron Wright (Scrumhalf) – 2019
Hyron Andrews (Lock) – 2019
Wian Vosloo (Utility Forward) – 2019
Rhyno Smith (Fullback) – 2019
Johan Deysel (Centre) – 2019
John-Hubert Meyer (Prop) – 2020
Jean Droste (Utility Forward) – 2019
Marius Louw (Centre) – 2020
Tyler Paul (Utility Forward) – 2020
Louis Schreuder (Scrumhalf) – 2020
Michael Claassens (Scrumhalf) – 2018
Jeremy Ward (Centre) – 2020
Thomas du Toit (Prop) – 2019
Lukhayno Am (Centre) – 2019
Ruan Botha (Lock) – 2019
Sbusiso Nkosi (Wing) -2020

We’re expecting some bigger fish to follow as we move closer to Christmas.

  • Rob can you please add the age of the players just for interest sake (and to be a bit difficult on this Monday morning)?

  • Any departures confirmed?
    Sharks seem to have done all their signing of players already. As mentioned only concern is tighthead but i think they banking on Thomas Dutoit there until Coenie is back.

  • Mzamo Majola (Loosehead prop) – 2020 Awesome the new beast
    Akker van der Merwe (Hooker) – 2019 Great
    Courtney Winnaar (Utility Back) – 2020 young player keeping a open mind
    Cameron Wright (scrumhalf) – 2019 Great
    Hyron Andrews (Lock) – 2019 Great!
    Wian Vosloo (Utility Forward) – 2019 played a lot of lock and now looks great at flank

  • If tank moves to TH that leaves beast and schoeman at LH, who are our other LHs ?

    I see that young number 2 we had in our squad is on the bench for Bath, cant remember the name, good for him.

    the other young number 2 we had is with the kings permanently, good for him too.

    With chilli, aker and franco its unlikely young player will get much game time unless injuries hit.

    have the Sharks started pre season yet ? last year this time they did.

  • To me the biggest suspense currently is what going to happen in the SARU Coetzee saga. I have an unpleasant feeling that they are going to surprise us with an extension or completely bone headed appointment that will doom our RWC hopes. It just feels like they are that level of incompetent.

    In all seriousness, I am not supportive of contract breaches at all, but we have been worked over by the Sharks in season past, so karma is what it would be. Mapoe comes to mind.

  • @Hulk (Comment 21) : I agree with the sentiment we need to protect the culture of true sharks men. However the report says his reasons is that he would want to stay because the cheetahs running style suits his play. With the backline the sharks have built including rob junior and now pulling dick muir back in. I can’t see the sharks NOT focussing on a more expansive running style at the back so that argument doesn’t hold water. However it’s up to him he should stay at cheetahs or fully commit. He should also be realistic and see which team gives him the better option for furthering his career and being part of a team that has better odds of success. Whichever that may be in in his mind. Just saying a team suits my style is not enough that limits your options and means you will not adapt to any other teams style local or international makes for a very one dimensional career and player at the end of the day.

  • @robdylan (Comment 24) : We are demanding arent we. jokes aside I do believe that we back our youngsters mapimpi is a great finisher but agreed we dont need someone who doesnt want to be here. Also maybe he doesnt think he will get enough game time. Also depends on what type of contract maybe just for superrugby

  • I can’t see us struggling at wing with Nkosi van Wyk Mvovo and Zas. So if his heart isn’t in it better for him to stay at cheetahs.

  • @coolfusion (Comment 23) : The Sharks have indeed got the players to play an expansive running game. That said, even with Lambie there, the Sharks have played a bash it up style of rugby. Just because the potential is there, doesn’t necessarily mean it will be the case. I think Mapimpi signed the deal, before the full value (for him) in Pro14 became clear.

    Still not in favour of contract reneging though.

    With Nkosi, Zas, van Wyk and Mvovo there, Sharks have plenty of options out wide. Logic says Mapimpi should be a sure starter, but at the Sharks, things are never that clear cut, especially in the backline.

  • @Hulk (Comment 21) : This may be a bit pessimistic but im just going to throw it out there…if Mapimpi comes to the Sharks he has a high chance of playing for the Boks next year. If he stays at the Cheetahs i dont think he will play for the Boks. Many may disagree but its just my thoughts

  • @KingCheetah (Comment 27) : What you say makes sense. But I think the way they are expanding the backs in conjunction with Dick Muir being pulled back sends that message that they want the change. Just my speculation of course just reading the signs as I see them.

  • @SheldonK (Comment 28) : Yes, you may have a point. The “criteria was that players, that aspire to get selected for the boks, need to perform at Super Rugby level. That was before the advent of Pro14, and there have been rumours of two squads being selected for the different style of rugby in the Northern Hemisphere, and the Twi-Nations. Will be interesting to see.

  • To me, if the player has any doubt that he wants to join the Sharks, he shouldn’t. I don’t want any fence sitters in our team. We need guys who are fully committed to our cause. Having such a player in a team casts doubt among others. Sanches and Ozil from Arsenal come to mind.

This year is a free pass as it’s their 1st time playing in this competition. Must say the Cheetahs have done well in that regard so I’m excited to see what they will do next year.

  • @SheldonK (Comment 28) : I fully agree, It just makes more sense that once Super Rugby begins all eyes will be on that and that is where individual performances be will weighed and measured. Unfortunately for the Cheetahs and their players hoping to force the selectors to give them a look in they just wont have same constant that all the Super teams will have – ie the same opponents and then very importantly playing against the other SA teams where individuals vying for positions will directly take each other on almost on a weekly basis.

    I think it is just going to get harder and harder for a Cheetah player to get selected for the Boks, much like it is for Pumas, Griqua SWD etc players to get a look in now.

  • @Quintin (Comment 34) : Agreed. Especially the Kings were handed a lemon! Cheetahs have recovered well after drubbings from Munster and Ulster, but they still have to convince on the road. That said, if the Cheetahs can progress to a semi-final, that would already be quite a statement of intent, given their taxing season in 2017.

  • Sounds like Mzwandile stick will be the springboks skills coach. And the no name brand from the Kings will be joining as coach. SARU committed to not building a successful bok brand. Rassie and Nienaber may be taking over the reigns in the interim. I’d stick and Deon come in I wonder what happens to Franco and Brendan “the defence rests….” Venter?

  • @JD (Comment 72) : I actually thought to make the rwc squad you would have had to have 30 caps as a bok under your belt.

  • @JD (Comment 72) : The word test caps actually misled me since I don’t regard a CC or SR match as a “test” match.

  • On a different note I see sport 24 querying who no non performance clause was written into AC contract. Shouldn’t this be the norm for players and coaches all through SA?

  • @coolfusion (Comment 79) : don’t try using common sense when talking about decisions made by SA rugby!!! To my knowledge the main clause in his contract is transformation (getting 50/50 before next World cup). Performance does not matter almost like in soccer! :twisted:

  • Sharks are being dishonest (shock). Some of these “extensions’ are just confirming existing contracts. Thomas du Toit signed a 3-year deal last year. So when they announce him today as “signed until 2019″ that’s not saying anything new.

  • I see akers baby brother duhan has left the french league and is playing for Edinburgh right now against Glasgow in the pro14. do the kings and cheetahs have a bye in this round of pro14 ?

    Some enjoyable rugby this weekend, french top14, pro14, aviva prem

    not SR level and not as fun for me to watch as CC but still getting my rugby fix

    best thing is the commentary teams, lots of insights and banter :)

  • @JD (Comment 86) : correct. Am has not signed an extension at all. Nkosi has signed for 1 year extra. About the only “real” coup here is Botha sining for 2 more years.

  • @revolverocelot (Comment 90) :

    My bad. These parents obviously put a lot of deep thinking into selecting names.

    Ruhan (spelled ????? in Arabic) is an indirect Quranic name for boys and girls that means “spiritual” (i.e. related to the spirit), “kindhearted”, “compassionate”. It is derived from the R-W-H6 (spirit, happiness) root which is used in many places in the Quran

    Johan is a masculine given name of Hebrew origin . It is a shortened form of the Hebrew name ?????????? (Y?hô??n?n), meaning ”God is gracious”, and uncommon as a surname. Johan is also a masculine given name of Malay language origin,meaning ”Champion”

    Duhan Surname, Family Crest & Coats of Arms. The Irish name Duhan comes from the Gaelic name O Beachain, possibly derived from the word “beach,” which means “bee.” It was also an Anglicized version of the Gaelic personal name Beathán, from “beatha,”meaning ”life.”

  • The ultimate endgame of parents inventing creative names with creative spellings for their kids is off course to name your son Pete, but spell it J-O-H-N.
