Sharks name new coaches
Former Sharks forward Brad Macleod-Henderson and current junior level boss Sean Everitt have been given coaching roles at the union ahead of the Currie Cup, the Durban franchise announced on Wednesday.
Macleod-Henderson has been appointed forwards coach, while Everitt will be in charge of the backs, with both working under the new director of rugby Brendan Venter in a new coaching structure, which was announced last month.
“It's a great opportunity, a great honour and something I'm really looking forward to,” said Macleod-Henderson, who was coach at Hilton College.
“We get going next week with the players, we will maintain things that have worked well, look to simplify things a bit and make sure that everyone understands one hundred percent what their roles and responsibilities are and create an environment where the players are happy and can play their best rugby.”
Everitt has coached at Under-19, Under-21 and Vodacom Cup level at the Sharks.
“It's a very exciting opportunity for me, it's going to be challenging, but that's what coaching is all about," said Everitt.
