Sharks give Hansie another shot

According to an article in several of the Afrikaans dailies, former Griffons utility back Hansie Graaff is set to stay in Durban for a further 6 months.

Jóhann Thormählen reports that the Sharks have offered Graaf a contract extension up until April next year, after his Currie Cup season ended up finishing before it has started due to a succession of unfortunate injuries. Initially contracted to provide cover across the backline, in the wake of departures by the likes of Meyer Bosman and Riaan Viljoen, Graaff picked up a knee injury during training and while he watched frustrated from the sidelines, the likes of Fred Zeilinga, Heimar Williams and SP Marais went on to establish themselves within a rapidly-improving Sharks backline.

Graaff did recover sufficiently to be available for selection later in the season (along with another pre-season injury casualty, S’bura Sithole) but by the time that had happened, the Sharks were already in their full-strength phase and couldn’t accommodate giving him any game time.

It is anticipated that Graaff will need to use the 2014 Vodacom Cup as a vehicle to push for Super Rugby selection, as it’s hard to see him forcing his way ahead of too many of the current Sharks backs.
