Sharks name squad for Currie Cup

Keegan Daniel will captain the Sharks in the Currie Cup

Sharks head coach Robert du Preez has announced his Currie Cup squad for the season with Keegan Daniel captaining the side.

The Sharks start their campaign this Friday against the Pumas in Nelspruit.

Daniel is a stalwart of Sharks rugby and has captained the Sharks 58 times, which included both Super Rugby and Currie Cup finals, as well as lifting the Currie Cup trophy in 2013.

He initially returned for this year’s Super Rugby campaign but has committed his immediate future to the team, by signing a new three-year contract.

Commenting on his decision, Du Preez said: “Keegan is someone who leads by example and sets the pace not only on the playing field but at training and also off the field.

“We have a young and enthusiastic squad and his experience and strong leadership will certainly provide the necessary mentorship, guidance and calming influence within our team environment.”
