    Mallett hunted by Sharks

    2013-06-09 17:12
    Durban - If reports are anything to go by and following their recent decline in form, the Sharks may be in for a change in coaches.

    SARugbyMag.co.za are reporting that former Springbok coach, Nick Mallett has been approached by the Sharks to take over from current coach, John Plumtree.

    The City Press reported on Sunday that Mallett stated that he is not interested in the job and was happy to continue in his role as a SuperSport analyst.

    "I did have an approach from Natal, but I'm very happy at SuperSport and want to continue what I'm doing until 2015 (the year of the next Rugby World Cup). After that I may be interested in returning to coaching with an international team."

    Plumtree has been the Sharks coach since 2008, winning the Currie Cup in his first season in charge. He would go onto guide the Durban-based franchise to another Currie Cup title in 2010 as well as both the Super Rugby and Currie Cup finals in 2012.

    Only time will tell whether Plumtree will indeed still be the Sharks' coach when the Super Rugby season resumes at the end of June.

    “Advantage is a great part of rugby, says Tank Lanning, but it allows for lots of personal interpretation, hence Victor Matfield’s tirade. ”
