    Smit lures former school coach

    2013-07-10 07:47
    Cape Town - Paul Anthony, who was John Smit's rugby coach at high school, is set to join the Sharks as assistant coach for the Currie Cup, a report on the Beeld website indicates.

    Anthony has coached the Blue Bulls' under-19 team over the last few years, but is well known for spending 25 years at Pretoria Boys’ High, Smit's Alma Mater.

    Anthony, who coached the Boys' High first team for 15 years, was at the helm when they beat Affies for the first time in 2003.

    Anthony will therefore join Brendan Venter, Brad MacLeod-Henderson and Sean Everitt as the men to take charge of the Sharks in the upcoming Currie Cup. His appointment is yet to be announced, but according to Beeld, it's a mere formality.

    Former Bok prop Deon Carstens is reportedly also linked with a scrum coaching role at some stage.

    The new coaching staff will replace John Plumtree, Grant Bashford and Hugh Reece-Edwards, who were last month relieved of their duties after Smit was made new Sharks CEO.
