Cape Town - Sport24 readers believe Sharks CEO John Smit made the right decision to appoint Jake White as Director of Rugby.

The Sharks earlier this week confirmed the appointment of former Springbok coach, White, as their new Director of Rugby.

Although a majority of fans believed White's appointment was in the best interests of the Sharks rugby union, one in three readers were sceptical, questioned White's loyalty and believed that ultimately he wouldn't stick around long enough to benefit the team in the long term, after he confessed to a desire to return to the Test rugby coaching arena.

Sport24 asked:

Was Jake White's appointment as Director of Rugby the right decision for the Sharks?

These were the results:

57 % - Without doubt!
37 % - Doesn't matter, he won't stick around for long
6 % - No way...
