Eben Etzebeth has signed a contract with the Sharks until 2017.
He will join the team in July. With Bok commitments he will probably only play in a Sharks jersey in 2023 / or December 2022.
In other news Grant Williams will be suspended for 4 games and will only be eligible to play from the 13th March.
The Sharks have appointed Neil Powell (previously announced as defense coach) as Director of Rugby from September 2022. Sean Everitt and Etienne Fynn will effectively then report to Neil.
The Sharks have great players and can play some marvelous rugby at times. Unfortunately there have also been something lacking in Sharks culture over the years – where talented teams can often put up some pretty indifferent error-ridden performances.
Hopefully Neil can bring his experience from the Bok Sevens setup and find what is missing in the Sharks setup and start by improving it.
