Boland strengthened by former Sharks

The Boland Cavaliers have announced the signing of six new players for the approaching Currie Cup season, with four of those boasting strong ties to the Sharks.

Former Sharks flyhalf Len Olivier returns from Colomiers in France to join up with the Western Cape side, as the imminent arrival of his first child has clearly prompted him and wife Brunhlide to seek pastures somewhat closer to their family seat in Pretoria. Olivier started his rugby as a Bulls junior, before playing for the Valke and the Sharks ahead of his departure to France in 2010.

A trio of former Sharks age-group players, who have since made a name for themselves in the Varsity Cup, are also on their way to Wellington. Prop Sabelo Nhlapo was a stalwart in Durban at age-group level and has played a big part in Tukkies’ success over the last two seasons. Similarly, utility forward Ulrich has done great work with the NMMU Madibaz since leaving the Sharks Academy. The third player is exciting centre-cum-fullback Wynand Pienaar, whose junior career in Durban was somewhat blighted by injury; he has also seen limited game time with Tukkies.

Other players heading to Boland are lock JC Astle and centre Reinhardt Erwee, both from Shimlas.
