Former England international Nick Easter has taken up a coaching role with the Sharks for the upcoming Currie Cup season.
Easter confirmed his departure from Harlequins recently for ‘personal reasons’, where he had been defence coach since 2016, having retired with a record-breaking 281 appearances for the club prior to that. The 39-year-old played in three World Cups for England, winning 54 caps.
Easter now looks to advance his coaching career abroad and emulate the likes of Joe Worsley, Ian Vass and Rory Teague.
The Sharks kick off their Currie Cup campaign with a clash against the Blue Bulls at Kings Park in Durban on August 25.
