Sharks search for next JP

Despite a resurgent performance in the Vodacom Super 14, the Sharks are not resting on their laurels ahead of the Absa Currie Cup.

Sharks coach Dick Muir has called a trials match so that he can get a good look at the next tier of talent in the province before the Absa Currie Cup, which starts late next month, the Mercury reported.

At the moment, Muir is missing 20 players who have been called up to either the Springbok training camp or the South Africa U21 squad.

The trials will takes place at King’s Park this evening and will involve mostly club players. Muir held trials soon after he took over from Kevin Putt last year and unearthed players such as JP Pietersen and Waylon Murray.
