    It was confirmed in November last year that Muir, a former Springbok and Sharks centre, would join the Durban-based franchise as an attack and backline consultant.

    Van Straaten, a former Springbok flyhalf and centre, is in charge of defence and kicking.

    “It’s great to have people like that here, with great experience. Dick’s presence here was much-needed, he adds balance,” Du Preez told the Sharks’ official website.

    The Sharks will play a pre-season game against the Bulls in Polokwane next Saturday (January 27), before travelling to Hong Kong for a match against French side Racing 92 (Saturday, February 3).

    The Durbanites open their Super Rugby campaign against the Lions in Johannesburg on Saturday, February 17.
