Sharks fail with 'new' Sharky

Johannesburg - Luckily for the Sharks, their performance against the Bulls in Durban was much more impressive than their new-look mascot.

Sharky - a popular mascot for the Sharks over the last number of years - has undergone a metamorphosis.

After the "new" Sharky was announced with much excitement a few weeks ago, it was disappointing to see a character that much rather resembles a Ninja Turtle or a bullfrog.

The old Sharky was much more athletic than the new version and also looked more like a Shark.

In fact, the new Sharky one is quite a comical character - sure to much rather be made a mockery of than being feared by opponents.

This character with his white pants and slippers will probably look much more at home at a Bowls club.

Like some fan said on Saturday: "If that is how sharks look, no one will be afraid of them."
