If you could ask Rugby Santa for one thing that’ll improve your team this year, what would it be?
Dear Rugby Santa,
I’ve been a good fan this year. I’ve supported my team the HollywoodBets Sharks and as you can see, I respect them immensely as I use their silly sponsorship name in all my written correspondence with friends.
When my friends say “the Sharks are kak”, I don’t get angry or belligerent.
For Rugbymas this year, I would love it if you could deliver a competent flyhalf to Kings Park. I don’t have a preference. Last year, I would have asked for Tinus De Beer, but any decent first five-eighth will do really.
Maybe you could swoop up Quade Cooper, or Jordan Hendrikse, or if you really want to spoil me, how about sending Finn Russel to Stamford Hill?
As fans, we’ve been waiting for Curwin Bosch or Boeta Chamberlain to take the reigns and deliver the biscuits, but now that seems like a fool’s errand. While we have hopes for Siya Masuku, we are facing the barrel this season and a string of good performances will definitely bring joy to the entire east coast.
Thank you for everything you do, and the vibes you bring to rugby fans around the world.
A suffering Durban Sharks fan.
PS: If you’re feeling generous, you could also bring Andre Esterhuizen back to the black and white.
