I’m sure I’m not the only one that is missing and longing for things to go back to normal! But as that might take a while and I really need something new on Sharksworld, I have come up with something for us to think about and hopefully discuss a bit:

If you could ask an ex-Sharks player anything what would it be?

Let’s see who can come up with the best (and as this is a family friendly site, family rated) questions.

Let’s have a bit of fun and let the grey matter work a bit as I really need something sport related to discuss and talk about!!!

Hoping and praying that everyone of my Sharksworld family and your loved ones is safe and healthy during this extraordinary time!!!






  • Awesome, thanks Jan! I’d love to ask Mark Richards how long it took him to remember his name after THAT hit… 😉

  • I would love to ask Brent Russel what he thought his best position was.

    They had some highlights of him on the sarugbymag site and he really was something special. I just wondered what Rassie would have managed to get out of him, like he did with Kolbe.

  • @StevieS (Comment 2) : On that note, in general it’d be interesting to speak to players and their coaches and compare the player’s perceived best position and the coaches take on the same position. Players like Russell, Pienaar, Steyn etc.

  • I’d live to find out if Marcell Coetzee would ever come back to the Sharks and if he wants to specialise as a number 8 now?

  • @Karl (Comment 3) : that would be very interesting.

  • I see that the Sharks are negotiating for Manie Libbok to move to Dbn. I won’t lie, I don’t rate this chap. Might as well sign Clayton Blommetjies while we’re at it…

  • @Karl (Comment 6) : I don’t think he will be pushing Bosch for the 10 jersey too much, however, we are pretty thin at 10 with only Chamberlain’s few minutes of SuperRugby as a backup to 10. So with respect to building depth, perhaps not such a bad move?

  • @Dancing Bear (Comment 7) : The article I read suggests that he’s coming as backup for Fassi. Apart from Boeta, there is still Meadon and one other name that escapes me, for FH backup

  • @Karl (Comment 8) : Jordan Chait?

  • @StevieS (Comment 9) : Same one, thanks

  • @Karl (Comment 6) : Libbok is a very good player. I think he will thrive in the current sharks environment and style of play. He combined very well with Bosch during the Jr world cup often with the 2 of them switching between 10 and 15 on attack with Ward benefitting. Maybe a similar result will happen at the sharks when he gets his chance. He will however have to fight for a place on the bench coz I don’t see him displacing Fassi.

  • @sudhir (Comment 11) : Here’s hoping he proves me wrong…

  • Comment 12, posted at 05.05.20 18:42:56 by Karl Reply

  • @sudhir (Comment 11) : I agree

    Looks like a solid recruit

    Worth noting that the only game that the bulls won in SR 2020 was the game Libbok started

  • Does anyone have any news on who’s leaving today with this C 19 rule?

  • Comment 14, posted at 14.05.20 09:03:05 by Karl Reply

  • @Karl (Comment 14) : I read an article that the Sharks are confident of holding onto Bosch, Mapimps, Am and Tank. Saw reports Cam Wright is off to the Kings, and JJvdM could also (not yet confirmed) be leaving for France or England

  • So Tyler Paul is off to Japan, didn’t see this one coming. The only casualty for the Sharks so far in the media reports. Pity to lose such a good hard working player, but all the best to him.

  • Overall good news. Feel bad for Cam Wright, never had a chance to make a name for himself I felt.

    Here be dragons
  • @Choochi (Comment 15) : @Here be dragons (Comment 17) : Eduard Coetzee confirmed we have held onto Mapimpli, Am, Tank, and JJ, with only Tyler Paul leaving. With both JJ and Evan Roos in the pipeline, our lock stocks are looking really good, both have potential to be excellent Boks.
