They say that behind every successful man, you’ll find a supportive woman and in the case of the Sharks, that couldn’t be more true (well, for the most part).

While all of us fans are, of course, nervous as hell about the prospects of our heroes for Saturday’s final, let’s also spare a thought for all the rugby wives and girlfriends who are regularly asked to sacrifice so much, in order that their husbands or boyfriends can run around for our entertainment, on various hallowed pitches across the globe.

Sharks ladies – we know that the last few weeks have been just as tough on all of you as they have on the players and we thought we’d show just a little of our appreciation with a shout out to all of you today.

I’m afraid to admit I don’t know absolutely everybody’s names, but I’m going to try my best! A huge thank you to each and every one of…

Ku Mtawarira
Ronel du Plessis (Jannie’s wife)
Simone Mann (Craig’s girlfriend)
Denise Smit (Wors’s girlfriend)
Nicolene Alberts
Velene Sykes
Kelly Hugo (Anton’s girlfriend)
Cindy Deysel
Nadia Botes
Chanelle Smit (Marcell’s girlfriend)
Vasti McLeod
Cindy Michalak
Megan Weir-Smith (JP’s girlfriend)
Kgomotso Ndungane
Chamé Ludik
Nicola Viljoen
Kate Symons (Pat’s girlfriend)
Steph Olyn (Lwazi’s girlfriend)

…as well as any other unknown or incognito wives, girlfriends, significant others or life partners whom I may have missed out.


  • I agree! And then they have to “share” them with crazy-ass Ladies fans, like yours truly as well!

    Thanks Girls!

  • I also want to give a shout out to all the ladies…. I know for all us ladies we are more than happy to support our men to live out their dreams even though it’s hard at times but it only brings us closer together… to all the ladies that have become moms YOU guys are fantastic.. the hard work you have put in raising all your precious children while the men are away YOU guys are amazing and I know the guys appreciate it more… the guys when away miss us just as much and those days when you just want to shout at them for not putting their clothes in the wash basket or putting their glass in the sink because you don’t want to fight with them before a game it means a lot to them…… good luck to all the boys this weekend.. Friends, family, fans are all behind you and we know you can bring it home…..

  • Rob, do you really think it was a good idea to give the name of Lambie’s girlfriend to Shaz? 😈
