Fisher calls time on Sharks

Announced late last week was that Junior Springbok three-quarter Tyler Fisher will play for the Pumas from next season. 21-year-old Fisher, a product of Westville Boys High and the Sharks age-group setup, played for South Africa at under 20 level in 2013.

Jake White surprised many when plucking Fisher – a regular at 13 – from the under 21 ranks to start at fullback for the Sharks shadow Super Rugby side against Saracens at the beginning of last season. An unfortunate injury sustained in that match curtailed Fisher’s involvement at senior level and he appeared to lose his way a little after that, with no further opportunities in either Currie Cup or Super Rugby level for the black and white.

Fisher played for the Emerging Springbok Sevens team in a few tournaments earlier this year before moving to Potchefstroom to play for the Leopards on loan. As a stand out performer in Robert du Preez’s team in the Currie Cup first division, it was inevitable that the Sharks’ loss would be another side’s gain and it appears that the Nelspruit based Pumas (already boasting a fair few Sharks age-group discards) are the side set to benefit.

We’d like to bid Fish farewell and wish him nothing but the best of luck for his future.
