2012-12-07 00:00

THE Sharks will send a talented side, containing a number of Currie Cup players, to the Sevens Premier League at Outeniqua Park in George on December 14 and 15.

Coach Roelof Kotze took the Sharks Sevens to their recent provincial victory and he has named a 12-man squad for George.

“We were good enough to win the inter-provincial tournament and will take the core of that squad into the Premier League,” he said this week.

The captaincy will be shared between Gouws Prinsloo and Springbok sevens player Sibusiso Sithole.

“S’bura [Sithole] has all the experience in sevens gained by playing for the Blitsbokke and Gouws has been a senior player in the squad for the last three years,” said Kotze.

“We also have Tera Mtembu [the Sharks flank] who has a lot of experience and between the three of them, the leadership responsibilities are covered.”


Tera Mtembu, Peet Coetzee, Sizo Maseko, Anton Verster, Gouws Prinsloo, Milo Ngoro, Sibusiso Sithole, Calvin Karnezos, Tyler Fisher, Sean Robinson, Jaco van Tonder and Mzo Mbona.
