The Sharks have announced that coach Sean Everitt will take charge of the side during their 2019 Currie Cup campaign.
Everitt has coached the junior teams with great success, most recently in 2018 when the Sharks U19s went the entire season without suffering a single loss.
In 2017, he was backline coach for the Sharks’ Vodacom Super Rugby campaign when the team won nine of their 15 season matches.
Everitt will be assisted by David Williams and Nick Easter, who were both part of this year’s Super Rugby coaching staff.
Williams joined the Sharks at the start of the season following stints with Kobe Steelers, London Irish, Bath, the Southern Kings and the Cheetahs in their Pro14 campaign,
Former England No 8 Easter was involved in the coaching set-up for the successful Currie Cup campaign last year which saw the Sharks crowned champions. He returned to Durban to contribute towards the 2019 Super Rugby campaign and remained there for the remainder of the season.
‘Sean is an astute coach with strong communication skills,’ Sharks CEO Gary Teichmann said. ‘We are confident that his experience and success with the junior teams will be hugely beneficial during this campaign, especially considering the young and hugely talented squad that has been assembled.’
