Sharks poach Lions star
The Sharks have snatched one of the Lions’ brightest talents in wing Madosh Tambwe, who last year famously scored four tries against the Stormers, with his hat-trick nailed with 13 minutes of the start of the game.
The Zaire-born 22 year-old joins the Sharks on a two-year deal and will train with the squad on Monday ahead of Friday night’s Currie Cup opener against Griquas in Durban.
At the other end of the age spectrum, 32-year-old JP Pietersen has returned to his Jonsson Kings Park roots on a four year-deal that will see him play until the end of the 2020 Currie Cup and then take up a coaching role with the age group teams. The World Cup winning Springbok will join a coaching development program to potentially groom him as a future Sharks coach.
In another positive development, Kings No 8 Andisa Ntsila is in Durban for a two-week trial. The 25-year-old has played 49 times for the Kings.
