    Cape Town - Former Sharks flank Brad MacLeod-Henderson is the favourite to fill the head coach position of the Durban-based team, according to a report in The Mercury.

    New Sharks CEO John Smit recently appointed Brendan Venter as Director of Rugby at the union.

    But Smit said there would also be a head coaching position, which is expected to be filled by MacLeod-Henderson.

    Current Sharks coach John Plumtree will leave the team after the completion of the Super Rugby competition after his contract was not renewed.

    With Venter performing the role of overseeing all coaching proceedings at the union, MacLeod-Henderson is expected to take charge of the Currie Cup team. The 37-year-old is the current Director of Rugby at Hilton College.

    He is also the assistant coach of the Sharks Under-21 team. The head coach for that team is Sean Everitt and, in an about turn, he is tipped to be MacLeod-Henderson's assistant during the Currie Cup.

    This would see current Sharks assistant coaches Grant Bashford and Hugh Reece-Edwards likely make way.
