Sharks get new coach


  • 17 Jul 2013

Brad MacLeod-Henderson has been confirmed as the new Sharks head coach ahead of the Currie Cup.

The news was released on Twitter by Sharks CEO John Smit and in Hilton College's official account.

Smit tweeted: 'Passed by Hilton College today to thank them for Brad, hopefully the start of good engagement with our Schools in KZN', while Hilton College announced: 'Congrats to the 2 year former 1st XV coach and old boy Brad MacLeod-Henderson (BMH) on his appointment as Sharks head coach for Currie Cup!'

MacLeod-Henderson succeeds Hugh Reece-Edwards and Grant Bashford, who coached the Sharks in the later stages of Super Rugby following John Plumtree’s controversial exit.

MacLeod-Henderson will work under new director of rugby Brendan Venter. Bulls U19 coach Paul Anthony will come on board as an assistant coach ahead of the 2014 Super Rugby campaign and it is believed that Sharks U21 coach Sean Everitt will also join the new management.
