Jake’s Fisher-King swap

Sharks Director of Rugby Jake White looks set to reveal the first big surprise of his tenure when he names his team to face Saracens this weekend.

Facing somewhat of a conundrum at fullback, given the non-availability of former Kings player SP Marais, reports suggest that 20-year-old outside centre Tyler Fisher is likely to face a baptism of fire when named in the number 15 jersey for Saturday’s game. Fisher, who played for SA Schools after a great Craven Week in 2012, leap-frogged the Sharks under 19 side completely last year and formed a formidable midfield partnership for the under 21s alongside Andre Esterhuizen. Esterhuizen, himself also still eligible for under 20 selection, will also travel to London on Wednesday, but it’s not yet clear how White intends to use him for the match.

So surprised where the assembled media on Thursday when White mentioned Fisher’s possible inclusion that they actually got his name wrong! One seasoned writer, who shall remain nameless for now, referred to the player as “Steve Tyler” in a piece for the Weekend Argus. While the young man from Westville certainly lacks a set to lips to match the gnarled Aerosmith frontman, we’re all backing him to have an “amazing” game on Saturday all the same.
