Sharks XV coach Sean Everitt has named a mostly unchanged side for his team’s second-round Vodacom Cup clash in Cape Town this weekend. Whilst his charges performed superbly in delivering a proper beating to Border last week, the coach is keen not to let anyone get ahead of themselves, as far tougher opposition await in the form of reining champions Western Province.

We reported a few weeks back that Western Province had given young loose forward Nick Koster the green light to enter into (or perhaps) continue contract negotiations with Bath in the UK. [...]
The final game of the weekend and one of the bigger clashes this round, sees Western Province hosting the Bulls. Western Province have had a poor start to the season, with one victory from three starts, while the Bulls have two from three, and are a good win away from taking second spot after the weekend games.

Despite the bad news regarding WP and their loosies, there is some good news to report on. [...]

Hey guys just a short note to remind us all here to be gracious in victory; and to love the game of rugby more than loving the sight of other teams losing.
SuperSport’s Brenden Nel yesterday confirmed a rumour that has been circulating for a while; high-profile young centre, Johann Sadie, has fallen so far out of favour with his new union, the Blue Bulls, that he may be looking at an exit after just six months of his contract there. [...]
Rassie Erasmus has dropped the WPRFU in the proverbial by suddenly announcing his resignation.
In a somewhat surprising move Western Province have announced the extension of Bryan Habana’s contract, and its not a one year extension, its a THREE year one. After the rumour mill started doing the rounds that he was in talks with Japanese Clubs, Habana took to twitter to rubbish the rumours saying “Amazing how some journalists can write the biggest load of nonsense to create sensationalism & then never apologise or correct their wrongs!” and following that with “Heard yesterday that I am in talks with some Japanese clubs??!??
