Sharks coach Dick Muir said that he and Springbok coach Jake White had “kissed and made up” following the national coach’s recent trip to help the Cats that had angered the Sharks mentor.
Speaking on SuperSport’s Boots&All programme on Thursday night he laughed that, “Jake and I have kissed and made up.”
“No,” he continued, “there were no real issues between us. But he understood our concerns and he backed off. He could really have made a difference at the Cats. And they are a team that really needs it.”
Muir said that while he understood that White believed he was acting in the best interest of SA rugby, the problem was that all SA team’s are still threatened by the relegation issue and the timing of his SOS mission to the Cats was poor.
“The timing was a problem, that’s all. It was not good,” added Muir.
