Cape Town - Former England No 8 Nick Easter is reportedly set to join the Sharks in a coaching capacity.
The 39-year-old, according to Rugby Pass, is on his way to Durban to help out the Sharks for the 2018 Currie Cup season.
Easter, who played 54 Test matches for England between 2007 and 2015, was let go recently by Harlequins following the arrival of Paul Gustard as Head of Rugby.
He had worked as a defence coach at the club.
Easter is understood to be in South Africa already.
The Sharks, meanwhile, get their Currie Cup campaign underway in Durban on August 25 when they host the Blue Bulls in Durban.
