Sharks Head Coach, Robert du Preez, has confirmed his coaching team for the 2017 Super Rugby season which starts in February.

Assistant coaches, Sean Everitt (backline and attack) and Ryan Strudwick (defence), who did duty with du Preez in this year’s Super Rugby tournament, will once again form part of the coaching structure together with Jaco Pienaar, the former UP-Tuks and Blue Bulls U/19 coach, who joins the Sharks on a two-year contract as forwards coach.

Commenting on his coaching team du Preez said: “A lot of work has been done to strategize the way forward and we have assembled a skilled group of coaches, who bring continuity as well as great commitment to put in the hard yards to achieve the goals we have set-out for ourselves.

“The majority of our coaching team have lived and played in KZN for many years, understand our unique culture and have worked with the young players in our team. We are four weeks into our pre-season programme and there is great energy and positivity amongst everyone.”

Early next year, the Currie Cup Qualifiers also kick-off and du Preez has also announced that Paul Anthony together with Ricardo Loubscher will head-up the Sharks XV’s Currie Cup qualifying campaign.

    I hope that we are going to see some clever attacking rugby this year.NOT the Brain Dead bullshit we had to watch in 2016.The Sharks looked like a bunch of School Kids who had never played Rugby before.The backline play was like a comedy .Please teach the players to pass the ball to a player,CATCH the ball when it is passed to you,and Most of all Learn to Tackle low & hard.The Skill level was pathetic to watch.STOP Kicking your possesion away.What happened to the art of running with the ball.(ITS CALLED RUGBY).
