Are these your 2015 Sharks?

Starting from around mid-November, all the way through until late February every year, there’s one particular question I am asked to field time and again: “When will the Sharks Super Rugby squad be announced”.

My answer is always roughly the same, too. The Sharks aren’t really big on squad announcements as such and since we all know who the players are that are contracted and in the mix and the fact that injuries or loss of form can see players promoted or dropped from any “squad” pretty much as needed makes any such announcement rather superfluous. That’s my view, anyway, but the questions keep coming regardless!

Based on the head-shots we linked to yesterday, I’m going to list out the squad as I believe it to be at this stage. This is not official, but my thinking is that the guys photographed in Super Rugby jerseys for “official media purposes” are likely to be the ones in the immediate running for Super Rugby action. Obviously there are a few names (youngsters mostly) missing from this list and our understanding is that they are currently training with the Vodacom Cup (or Grey) squad, rather than the Super Rugby one.

Without further ado, here’s my best shot at your Sharks Super Rugby squad for 2015:
