FRENCH INTERNATIONAL Frederic Michalak has joined the Sharks, after injuries reduced the Durban-based outfit to just one halfback.
The 54-test veteran has signed a 14-month contract with the team and will be available for Saturday’s must-win game against the Cheetahs.
Capable of covering both halfback and first five, Michalak played for Super Rugby and Currie Cup for the Sharks in 2008.
“I loved my year that I spent in Durban and the cherry on the top was winning the Currie Cup trophy,” he said.
“Unlike the first time when I signed for the Sharks, there won’t be problems in terms of any language barrier and being able to slot in with old teammates will be a plus factor.”
Sharks coach John Plumtree said the signing had come at the right time.« Back to Archives
