Another new face

Yet another new prop was spotted training with the Sharks Currie Cup group yesterday, although it’s not clear whether he’ll still be in the mix come final squad selection time.

Like Juan Schoeman, Gerhardus Engelbrecht is a former Affies boy who came through the Bulls system, playing under 21 rugby in Pretoria for 2 years, as well as representing Tuks in the Varsity Cup competition in 2012 and 2013. He played for the Valke last year in the Currie Cup first division and seems to have moved to Durban to play for Rovers, from where he’s been included in the Sharks group.

Engelbrecht is 24 years old and a rather large unit indeed – tall for a tighthead prop at around 1.90m. Based on this image, he appears to be very solidly built too – perhaps weighing even more than the 118kg listed in his SA Rugby profile.

We’ll share more details on Engelbrecht once we know whether he’s likely to feature permanently for the Sharks.
