Black and Pink – it REALLY matters

The Sharks have unveiled the special edition black and pink jerseys that will be worn against the Cheetahs at ABSA Stadium this weekend, as part of the Sharks initiative to raise money for CANSA, the Cancer Association of South Africa.

The jersey is a once-off, limited edition and will be sold to the public in seriously limited numbers (only 110 will be manufactured). As we mentioned a week or so ago, Sharksworld have managed to get our grubby hands on 10 of these jerseys and we will be announcing a number of exciting initiatives during the course of the week (and beyond) that might just allow you to get your hands on one of these babies.

We need to emphasise again that these are serious collector’s items and are sure to be worth their weight in gold to anyone serious about the Sharks and rugby memorabilia. While we intend to hang onto a jersey or two to hand out as competition prizes in the future, the major goal behind buying so many of them is to try and start our own initiative to raise some additional money for CANSA, so we’re going to be looking at auctioning a few of these puppies off to the highest bidder, with anything we make over and above the cost price going straight into the Association’s coffers.

In the meantime, for those of you who fancy the chance of winning a signed jersey, straight from the Sharks, be sure to enter their SMS competition, the details of which are below.


  • That looks awesome..

    I WANT ONE!!

  • @Pink Ice… 🙂 I’m 100% fine with that, don’t mind it all…like I said, what I grew tired of on 365 was the constant insults flying around, wasn’t fun and light hearted as it should be.

    Being a Sharks supporter living in Pretoria is challenging enough and if I want to get insulted for supporting the Sharks I can just go to Makro, hehe 😉

  • Oh sorry Rob, this is still rumours at this stage and not been signed and sealed. Still like the look of the two midfielsers coming this way, add the Gimmie midfielders and again we look pretty well serve in this department. William Small-Smith is quite a player aswell as Howard.
