Currie Cup Head Coach, Sean Everitt today announced that Tera Mtembu and Jeremy Ward will co-captain the Cell C Sharks in the 2019 Currie Cup campaign.

When questioned about the appointments, Everitt said:

“The decision to go with co-captains will ensure continuity on the field of play at all times. Both these players understand our diverse team culture and where we are heading collectively.  More importantly they have the respect of the team and are natural leaders.

“I am a firm believer in the philosophy that every player should be a leader in their respective positions, however you do need your captain to be a voice of reason and someone with a calm head that the team can look to for direction during pressure situations.  We have this in Tera and Jeremy.”

The Sharks have also named JP Pietersen in their Currie Cup squad after he signed a contract until 2020’s edition of South African Rugby’s domestic showpiece event.
