Cell C Sharks Currie Cup coach Joey Mongalo strongly believes that his Sharks players restored honor to the club badge with their performances throughout the Currie Cup campaign, despite failing to reach the final of South Africa’s premier Rugby competition. The Sharks fell to the the Airlink Pumas 26-20 in Durban, which added to their woes from the weekend before that when they were thrashed 44-5 by Western Province in Cape Town. The Currie Cup coach, who will move to defence coach under John Plumtree next season, has taken full responsibility for both results, as the changes made in the side saw the Durbanites lose momentum after a seven match winning streak.

Overall the Sharks won ten of the fourteen Pool matches in the Currie Cup, losing four matches before the knock out stages. In those ten wins, seven of them were off the spin in what was a winning run that last for almost three months. Mongalo says he is proud that his team was able to galvinise around a purpose, in a short space of time together to reach the last four of the competition.
