Media Release Clarification

26 November 2015

With reference to a press release issued by The Sharks on Thursday, 19th November 2015, we wish to clarify the following information relating to the announcement of the players released:

Our wording of ‘Players having been released from their contracts' was factually incorrect. In selecting a provisional pre-season training squad, difficult decisions needed to be made in order for us to move forward. Our coaching team had the uncomfortable task of re-looking at our current squad and sadly identified that the players mentioned, would find it difficult to get regular game time in 2016 and keeping them would be unfair on their careers currently. This exercise was completed at this stage, to allow those players the opportunity to find alternate employment either locally or internationally.

It is important to note that the players listed were not released from their contracts and are still under the employ of The Sharks. As such, they will be remunerated accordingly until alternate employment is secured. Saying goodbye to members of the Sharks family is never easy and these gentlemen have contributed to the environment whilst here which makes this process a tough one emotionally as friendships have been forged over the years. They will be missed and are always welcomed guests at the Tank.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank the players mentioned for their service and contribution to the union and offer them our best wishes as they move forward in their careers.
