Gold comes in – and Venter’s back too!

Sharks fans were dealt a double dose of good news earlier this morning, with the union confirming the appointment of two key men to take matters forward on the field.

As was widely anticipated, former Springbok and Western Province assistant coach Gary Gold was today confirmed as the new Sharks Director of Rugby and will be in the post for at least the next three years.

CEO John Smit also announced that fan favourite and “rugby brain on a stick” Dr Brendan Venter has been officially appointed to a Technical Director role. While it is not yet clear quite how much time on a weekly or monthly basis this role will entail, it remains incredibly positive and encouraging to have Venter’s wealth of experience and acumen available and with he and Gold having an existing working relationship, we’re expecting much synergy from the two appointments.

Speaking of Gold, Smit said, “Gary is an experienced coach who brings a wealth of knowledge and an impressive level of commitment to his new role. Having worked closely with him in the Springbok set-up, I found him to be approachable with a high regard for player welfare and management as well as meticulous attention to detail in regard to the game. We are delighted that he has agreed to join The Sharks family.”

“The team environment he [Brendan Venter] created and the success he achieved with us in a short space of time speaks volumes about his character, commitment and general rugby acumen,” the CEO added. “As I have previously stated, we will do whatever we can to keep him involved with us for as long as possible.”
