The lesser spotted scrumhalf

It’s a momentous day – we have photographic evidence that scrumhalf Michael Claassens has arrived in Durban at last!

The former Bok halfback, who has established himself as a key player at RC Toulon over the last few seasons, after six seasons at Bath in the UK, was announced as a Sharks signing way back in Feburary. Details surrounding his arrival were always somewhat sketchy, with the phrase “when his French commitments are over” being bandied about.

Needless to say, an entire super Rugby campaign came and went with nary a sign of the 32-year-old Kroonstad native in a black and white jersey. As you can see from this gallery, however, he is now very much in the mix and training hard with the Sharks Currie Cup squad.

With Cobus Reinach (who is still in the latter stages of rehab following a hand fracture) expected to be on Bok duty and Cameron Wright off to France, Claassens will join Conrad Hoffmann, Stefan Ungerer and Hanco Venter as the Sharks options at scrumhalf for the Currie Cup season.
