Early scrumhalf troubles for Sharks

With Cobus Reinach’s elevation to the Springbok squad coupled with Charl McLeod’s decision to pursue his career in France, the Sharks find themselves needing to try out some new options at scrumhalf during this year’s Currie Cup. Injuries to a few players, though, look to be further muddying the picture.

First in line must surely be Stefan Ungerer, the young product of Maritzburg College who made a decent fist of his handful of Super Rugby appearances this year. He has suffered an unfortunate finger injury while on under 21 duty, though and looks likely to miss out on at least the first month of Currie Cup action as a result.

We’re hearing a very worrying rumour that Conrad Hoffmann, recently re-contracted from the Brumbies, may once again be injured. His first Sharks contract was essentially nullified by the succession of injuries that saw him play only a handful of games over two seasons; let’s hope that his second stint in Durban doesn’t go the same way (although the early signs aren’t good).

That leaves just Hanco Venter and Cameron Wright – both still under 21 – as scrumhalf options available to the Sharks coaches ahead of Saturday’s tough opener, an away game against Griquas.
