Sharks coach Sean Everitt is pleased with the progress that young utility forward Dylan Richardson has shown after having to deal with some criticism in the early stages of the domestic season.

Richardson gave another good performance as the Sharks claimed a morale-boosting 32-29 victory over the Bulls in the Carling Currie Cup clash on Saturday. The 21-year-old, together with Henco Venter and Sikhumbuzo Notshe, stood firm against the Bulls’ experienced loose trio of Duane Vermeulen, Arno Botha, and Marco van Staden, to give the Sharks a chance to clinch the big win and revenge against their bitter rivals.

Early in the season, Richardson was shifted to play hooker with his coach saying the player had played a little bit in that position during his school days.
