The Boland Cavaliers have announced the signing of six new players for the approaching Currie Cup season, with four of those boasting strong ties to the Sharks. [...]
Let’s assume, for just a second, that we all (well, most of us) get our wish and the Sharks enter the 2014 Super Rugby season with a new coaching team in charge of the side. My view is that while moves to establish that coaching team do need to start as quickly as possible, it’s probably better if it’s not done as a rush job, rather that the appropriate time is spent ensuring that the right people, with the right credentials, are involved.

He has been rubbing up people, he has been barking up the wrong tree – for some. He has dished out and received. But he is still around – surprisingly to some folks!
I have posted some questions to our latest spoon on Sharksworld – so here we go – meet the guy behind SAFFEX! [...]
So, call me gorgeous , and call me blonde, but add Clairvoyant to that resume now!
As some of you might recall…mind you, or not…I wrote a little piece on the Bulls with their open chequebook some time ago. http://www.sharksworld.co.za/2012/07/18/did-the-bulle-win-the-blerrie-lotto/ [...]
The Sharks recorded an unexpected, 4-wicket win over the Sunfoil Dolphins in yesterday’s Pick’n'Pay Durban Challenge T20 match, at Sahara Park Kingsmead. Set a competitive total of 183/5 to chase, it was thanks, in no small part, to a smashing innings from Lions loan-player Franco van der Merwe that the rugby side stole the win. [...]
After being found not guilty of all the charges against him, John Mitchell has been requested to return to work tomorrow as head coach of the Lions. [...]
After reporting earlier this morning that Waylon Murray might be on his way to the Kings, a Cheetahs player has reportedly signed with the Port Elizabeth side. [...]
Bryan Habana won SARU Player of the Year for the third time at an awards dinner held last night while the Sharks were also big winners in picking up three awards. [...]
Heyneke Meyer, in interviews this week, has expressed his frustration at mismanagement of players that have been overplayed in this long season, leaving him with injuries to key players and a bunch of overplayed and exhausted players in his training group. Meyer feels that we should be looking to New Zealand for tips in this area saying: “I think the one team that gets it right in the world is the All Blacks” [...]
In line with SARU hosting their awards dinner tomorrow night, I feel we have to reward our very own Sharks players for what they have achieved during the season. [...]
The newly crowned Currie Cup champions caused a bit of a stir during their open bus tour through the City of Cape Town, with players throwing money at supporters. [...]
Unfortunately I cannot write this with the elation of a winning supporter but must again admit that we were beaten by the better (or maybe smarter) team on the day and were once again outplayed in a final. Congratulations to the ultimate winners! WP you deserve this trophy and it must be so much sweeter having waited for it for 11 years. We hope that you’ll have to wait 11 more for another trophy.

Yet another South African lock has packed his bags to look for greener pastures elsewhere, after a fourth Cheetahs lock has decided to head north to France. [...]
