  • Good to hear this…assuming this contracts will be upheld…in this day and age who knows. Wonder what Inny Radebe will think of this…i suppose he is still fairly young so could stick it out and play some CC if he gets that chance.

  • Does this really mean anything?
    Sorry but Marcell’s 2 year contract extension was celebrated, and six months later we were celebrating that he said he would like to return to play for the Sharks someday.

    One can only hope that they stick to their contracts.

  • @Salmonoid the Subtle (Comment 4) : True. There is probably an exit clause or something in the fine print of their contracts. BUT, let’s celebrate that at least it looks like their intention is staying at the Sharks (for now).

  • @Salmonoid the Subtle (Comment 4) : The biggest security this gives us is that if they want to leave, someone has to buy them out of their contracts, meaning lots of nice money for the Sharks. If they are out of contract it means nothing for us money wise.

    I’m dam glad they signed, even if it’s just for two years. Would have loved to see the twins on a 3 to 5 year contract.

  • Its great they put pen to paper but with the way our rand is going many European clubs will be able to pick them up a good rates. Its a double edged sword, the better they play for us the more their value goes up and more the agents will come sniffing and licking their butts.

  • Just think in the midst of all this some one should credit the Natal and specifically the Durban schools setup for producing players like the twins,Marcell and Pat Lambie,all of whom cost the Sharks peanuts when they were first contracted

  • @The hound (Comment 11) : Obviously not, I would rather they play out of their skins and honour their contract period. Obviously. How about you, would you mind if they move on after 6 months or will you call them rugby mercenaries?

  • @Salmonoid the Subtle (Comment 13) : It’s not my personal opinion that makes a player a rugby mercenary its his behaviour,any guy who hops from contract to contract is a mercenary.I don’t necessarily have a problem with mercenaries as long as you recognise what he is,he is a player who puts himself ahead of the team.
    He and his agent are already working on their next move as soon as they have signed the current one,and its very important for him to be in the right shape when that move comes ,so putting your body on the line for the common cause is a no no .

  • @Salmonoid the Subtle (Comment 16) : I thought he asked to be released almost as soon as he got to Durban. The Sharks said no we might need you this season (he was expected to be fit for the NZ tour, and Oosthuizen and the twins weren’t sure things). Now that we have back-up and the youngsters are performing well the Sharks said “you can go to Pretoria now.”

  • @the-other-sharky (Comment 17) : Id say the theory that the twins were about to move on and we needed the money to keep them at the tank was more the reason to let him go and free up some cash. The twins have been good all season so its not as if they are now finding form. Seriously, which team in the world, who could be heading into tough play off rounds of rugby, would be willing to whittle down their stocks of very talented and versatile players, right before said playoffs, if not for the money.

  • @The hound (Comment 20) : Mike Hore, there is a name from the past, in my wanderings in the old SE Transvaal, I came upon this really nice forestry farm with a few nice housing units apart from the main house. I found out that Hore and his merry bunch of mercenaries were based there while “training” for their fiasco.

    I would say that any player who has just signed a contract with a team and is already entertaining thoughts of a bigger payday with another master must be some sort of rugby mercenary.

  • This is great news! And equally good to see April recognised even when Lambie is back.

    I have to wonder what some of you Negative Nellie write on wedding cards: “Congratulations on your nuptials and may you both be very happy together. Of course, with the current divorce rate that is unlikely, so enjoy the 8.3 years you will be together. Regards…”

    Live in the moment and enjoy the signing – the future is uncertain. Unfortunately, the negative outlook of some here is certainly not.

  • Good news, well done to John Smit and co. Great commitment by the twins to the Sharks. Now to get their older brother (great payback to the Stormers for the PSDT poach). Is Lood still a sexy option considering our two starting locks who have been brilliant? I think so. Time to experiment with Mjekevu or Sithole at 13.

  • Signing jl dup,dan dup and april are good for the sharks.losing potgieter with 3 games left and potential play-offs,not.the rapport article said the decision was based on business considerations.quite sure the sharks would have liked to still have potgieter on the books.from a rugby only consideration keeping potgieter made sense.anyone saying different is living in a different reality.no need to attack the player.money had to be found to keep the twins and the decision was made to let him go.sharks should have just said so.then there would have been no twitter attack on the player’s character.

  • @GreatSharksays (Comment 32) : before there is a discussion on further signings,ie new acquisitions,there needs to be a clear understanding of the financial situation at the union.marcell and jp is off the books from next season,yet potgieter also had to be let go to procure these signings .still in negotiations with willie.lood is a signing that imo the sharks don’t have the money to acquire.need to ensure eo,lewies,botha,uanivi,andrews stay fit.tighthead cover is where my concern is.

    Everybody else is also well aware of that professional rugby reality; we just choose not to let it sap our joy at every opportunity.

Simple really and if that happens then these celebrations mean squat.

  • I personally think this is bad news,it was such a brave decision to appoint a rugby player to that position.A guy who knew the game better from the field than anyone else.It should have worked ,the guy came in with impeccable credentials.
    Just hope they don’t revert to another stuffed blazer whose only credentials are that he once brought the oranges on for the under15 c ‘s.
    Or worse still another bloody figure head like fat Thelo.
    Maybe we will get lucky with a Kevin de Klerk

  • @The hound (Comment 77) : McKenzie knows KZN rugby though. Dont now of any young blood that would be suitable. Cant see either of Teich or Andrews getting involved. Strauli would have if he was still in town.

  • @FireTheLooser (Comment 68) : Dang right I do. Hey who knows maybe someday soon they can be reunited at the tank, if there is any money left to pay them what they are worth ,of course.

  • @SheldonK (Comment 79) : Ill take Strools tomorrow. I think McKenzie would make a brilliant president of SARU.

  • @Zibbie (Comment 82) : Yeh he is doing a great job for the Lions and in return benefiting SA so would be silly for him to leave

  • The position is not technical it’s the business side of things what makes anyone think another ex-player would be the best fit? John for all his technical ability made some doozie appointments from Waylon murray to fat Stevenson and the list goes on and on. Yes they made better decisions this year but the previous drain starting with the sacking if Plumtree then Jake has left a gaping wound in the coffers so this record if poor business performance could have been what made the business start questioning the value of and ex player in the admin top seat. So what now appoint another ex player with no business credential?

  • @coolfusion (Comment 89) : If we’re looking for an ex player with serious business acumen, I’d look no further than Teichman (not that he’d leave his successful civils company).
