“Never again in a Sharks jersey”


Written by Rob Otto (robdylan)

As a rule, Sharks loosehead prop Dale Chadwick is a pretty shy guy and it’s not often you’ll anything in the way of media quotes from the 24-year-old Westvillian. The Sharks website did manage to corner him for an interview, though and we’ll reproduce some of it here with their kind permission.

The thing that I found most interesting was the admission that the tight five was so stung by their own performance in the opening round against Griquas, that they made a solemn vow never to repeat that showing. “After that Griquas game, we made a pact as a five that this kind of performance can never happen again in a Sharks jersey, ” says Chadiwck, “and the guys really stood up and showed what we have against the Lions. That gave us confidence in that match and gives us confidence going into this weekend’s game against Free State because we’re a good tight five.”

Players taking that sort of personal responsibility for their own performances and showing pride in the jersey, for me, is a huge positive to come out of that game.

You can read the rest of Dale’s thoughts, including what he thinks of the new scrum engagement sequence, here.
