Keegan regains Sharks captaincy

Keegan Daniel will captain the Sharks during this year's Currie Cup campaign.

Daniel, who returned to Durban at the beginning of the season following a two-year stint in Japan, has captained the Sharks on 58 occasions and lifted the Currie Cup in 2013.

The 31-year-old flank initially returned for this year’s Super Rugby campaign, but has since signed a new three-year contract with the Sharks.

'Keegan is someone who leads by example and sets the pace not on the playing field, but at training and also off the field,' said Sharks Currie Cup coach Rob du Preez. '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.'
