Here is a MONSTER penalty kick from young Sharks back Curwin Bosch against the Emirates Lions for the Natal Sharks in their Super Rugby clash in April 2017. Bosch, 19, nailed this 60m+ kick with ease. Aided mildly by the altitude at Ellis Park, but a fantastic kick nevertheless from the teenager Continue reading “Video Curwin Bosch penalty kick vs Golden Lions Super Rugby 2017- Monster 62m penalty from 19 year old”
Springbok coach Allister Coetzee has invited 13 players from the Natal Sharks for this weekend’s second camp in Stellenbosch. The Sharks were not part of the first camp held in Johannesburg owing to their tour commitments.
Why have Andre Esterhuizen and Philip van der Walt not been called up for the Bok camp?
Inside center Esterhuizen and eighthman Van der Walt have been two of the Sharks’ most consistent performers this season, but have seemingly been ignored by Coetzee. Another surprise exclusion is tighthead prop Lourens Adriaanse.
List of Natal Sharks players invited to Bok Camp April 2017
Ruan Botha, Etienne Oosthuizen, Lukhanyo Am, Kobus van Wyk, Beast Mtawarira, Coenie Oosthuizen, Chiliboy Ralepelle, Jean-Luc du Preez, Cobus Reinach, Pat Lambie, Lwazi Mvovo, Curwin Bosch, Tera Mtembu
Here is Mohoje vs Reinach in the Cheetahs-Sharks game over the weekend.

Mohoje was yellow carded by referee Jaco Peyper and later apologised to Reinach after the game on social media. Reinach, who is due to move to Northampton Saints later this year, accepted the apology Continue reading “Oupa Mohoje yellow card v Sharks Video | Teboho Mohoje Reinach High Tackle Fight incident Video”

The Sharks have announced the signing of flanker Jacques Vermeulen from Western Province. The former Baby Bok, who represented South Africa at the 2014 JWC tournament, is one of several major signings announced by the Durban based franchise for the 2017 Super Rugby season, alongside the likes of Kobus van Wyk and Clement Poitrenaud.
The move will also re-unite Vermeulen with Baby Bok team-mates Jean-Luc and Daniel du Preez. Vermuelen played at the 2014 tournament as an injury replacement for Daniel.

Munster have completed the signing of versatile Sharks prop Thomas du Toit on loan for a period of three months. Du Toit, a former Baby Bok representative, can operate on both sides of the scrum, but is said to be looking to cement his position as a tighthead and played mostly at 3 for the Sharks in the recently concluded Currie Cup.
South Africa were thin at 3 following the departure of Jannie du Plessis after the World Cup and loosehead prop (although not officially) is seen as a “coloured” position in some circles, with the likes of Beast Mtawarira, Trevor Nyakane and Lizo Gqoboka all in the running.
At tighthead prop, the Boks currently have the likes of Frans Malherbe, Julian Redelinghuys and Vincent Koch. Continue reading “Thomas du Toit to Munster- Sharks prop joins on three month loan”
