The Sharks is a proud and successful rugby franchise located in Durban, South Africa. Over the past three decades, our brand has evolved from a provincial rugby brand to a commercially recognised sporting brand of international acclaim. With a strong culture of inclusivity underpinned by diversity, The Sharks is the most transformed sporting team in South Africa. Since the franchise was established om 1995, we have stood at the forefront of creating opportunities and are driven by innovation, community and integrity. The Sharks have won the Currie Cup (South Africa's premier domestic rugby competition) on eight occasions and have contributed a record number of players selected for the Springboks. In our inaugural stint in the United Rugby Championship playing against Northern Hemisphere teams, we made it into the Top 8 finishing 5th overall qualifying for the European premier division, Heineken Champions Cup.
