Key players put pen to paper

The Sharks and their CEO John Smit have moved quickly to follow up yesterday’s bombshell with some very good news. A number of key young players, with Bok hero Patrick Lambie chief among them, have signed long-term contract extensions with the Sharks.

Lambie joins young stars Thomas du Toit, Andre Esterhuizen, Stephan Lewies, S’bura Sithole and Cameron Wright in committing their future to the Sharks until the end of 2017. The confirmation of Esterhuizen’s signature in particular is huge news and must surely have something to do with yesterday’s development. Earlier in the year, talk was rife that the young man was all but certain to move to Western Province, following a difference of opinion with the erstwhile Director about his best position.

According to an article on SharksRugby, the following players have contracts valid until 2016: Dale Chadwick, Matt Stevens, Monde Hadebe, Wiehan Hay, JC Astle, Khaya Majola, Conrad Hoffman, Heimar Williams, Lionel Cronje, Paul Jordaan, Tyler Fisher and Tim Swiel.

The bigger question, of course, relates to the other set…. the “big names”, many of them Boks, whose contracts are due to expire after the World Cup. Smit admits that negotiations with those players still need to take place.
