Gold was named Sharks Director of Rugby in October last year after the departure of Jake White.

But he still has commitments in Japan where he is finishing his stint as coach of the Kobe Steel Kobelco Steelers. Gold will join the Sharks early next month when they tackle French and European champions Toulon in a friendly clash.

In the meantime, Venter will prepare the team for this year's Super Rugby competition. Venter helped coach the Sharks to Currie Cup glory in 2013 before White was given the head coaching job in Durban.

Throughout the year, Venter will offer insights to the Sharks in an advisory capacity.

Assistant coaches
Brad MacLeod-Henderson, Sean Everitt and Paul Anthony are also on hand as the Sharks prepare for a training game against a team made up of various Durban clubs in two weeks, before heading off to France.

They start their Super Rugby campaign at home against the Cheetahs on February 14.
