The Sharks coaching team of Brendan Venter, Brad Macleod-Henderson and Sean Everitt have been recognised for the work they’ve done over the first few rounds of the Currie Cup by being awarded the ABSA Currie Cup Coach of the Month prize for August.

The award was handed over at a press conference at Kings Park today, with Western Province’s Cheslin Kolbe scooping the Player of the Month gong. Kolbe beat Sharks flank Jean Deysel and Lions flyhalf-cum-fullback Marnitz Boshoff to the prize.

The Sharks coaching team have donated their R10 000 winnings to Childline.

Congratulations to all concerned.


  • So the “John Plumtree Award” stays in Durban.

  • @robdylan (Comment 3) : That would be a first…so the Sharks really does not have any assistant coaches…interesting

  • @robdylan (Comment 5) : Is my logic a bit flawed 😕

    Here’s my thinking: The coach of the month award goes to the head coach only (excludes his assistant coaches). So if Venter BMH and Sean all received the coach of the month award, that would mean that all three are equal partners at coaching the team. ?

    There might be other assistant coaches, but none of the three.

    Which raises the question, how big is that coaching team?

  • I’m still waiting for Saffex’s apology. Cheslin Kolbe is absolute gold. To stand out in the Currie Cup at that size and age takes a classy player. Cheslin is quality.
