Curtains for Sharks’ Plumtree

Sharks coach John Plumtree will leave his position at the end of the season after his contract was not renewed, new chief executive officer John Smit has confirmed.

New Zealander Plumtree has been in charge of the Durban franchise since 2008, guiding the team to two Currie Cup titles and a Super Rugby final.

There was mounting speculation over his future at the weekend when reports emerged that former Springbok coach Nick Mallett had been approached to take over.

Smit also revealed today that Brendan Venter would be appointed to a new director of rugby role.
