Dell out, Stevens in

There’s a fair bit of “prop movement” for the Sharks today, with news filtering through ahead of any official announcements.

A few European sites broke the news this morning that former Baby Bok and Sharks under 21 prop Allan Dell will shortly leave Durban to join up with Alan Solomons in Edinburgh. Dell qualifies for Scottish selection via his grandmother and will thus look to establish himself as a future test player north of Hadrian’s Wall, after spending three mostly successful years in the Sharks junior setup.

It goes without saying that we wish Allan all the best for his future career with Edinburgh and hope that he goes on to achieve his dream of representing Scotland in test rugby.

Bigger news, though (and no disrespect meant to Dell) comes in the form of confirmation from the Sharks that English test prop Matt Stevens will join the Sharks for 2 years, starting this Currie Cup season. Stevens, Durban born and educated before pursuing his rugby fortune in England, returns to end his career with the Sharks, where he will provide utility option as an experienced front ranker and will also allow better rotation and management of the Sharks’ Springbok props.

The Sharks will reveal full details about the Stevens signing in due course.
