Arbor Park Grounds
The Sharks will play a Currie Cup match in Newcastle in June.
After negotiations between the club and the KwaZulu-Natal Rugby Union (KZNRU), it was confirmed a fixture between the Sharks XV and the Pumas will be hosted at the Arbor Park Grounds on June 18.
However, this is on the proviso the team is sponsored in terms of accommodation.
“The team and its members would obviously do everything reasonably possible to accommodate a sponsors’ needs while in Newcastle,” explained Pete Smith, CEO of the KZNRU.
In a formal appeal from Johan Pieters, founder of Champ Marketing, businesses were called on to make contact and help ensure this golden opportunity did not go amiss.
Mr Pieters can be reached on 082 923 0078.
We will arrange for a signed rugby jersey to be presented to establishments which assist.
Boschpick Newcastle Highlanders will contest a curtain-raiser ahead of this match, hoping to capitalise on the presence of KwaZulu-Natal’s finest.
