Sharks thrilled with progress made by Boeta Chamberlain

Sharks flyhalf Boeta Chamberlain has come into his own in 2021 and finished off a year of progress with a fine performance in the win over the Bulls.

Chamberlain’s most memorable moments of the season involved 40-50 metre drop goals but he is a very well round rugby footballer.

Sharks coach Sean Everitt seems intent on backing Chamberlain as his first choice number ten. This despite having Curwin Bosch and Argentinean pivot Tito Bonilla in the squad.

“We wanted to continue with Boeta’s growth at No 10,” he explained after the match.

“He’s going to add depth in that position and we haven’t been that fortunate over the last 21 months or so to be able to do that.

“He’s really coming through with flying colours. He’s good under the high ball and that’s a really important part of the game for us.

“We’ve got Tito who got back to South Africa last week. It’s great to have him here and the more time he gets on the training field, the better he is going to get.”

After a 2021 of near-misses, the Sharks got a measure of revenge on the Bulls with a 30-16 win in Durban, but Everitt will know that the men from Pretoria remain the standard-bearers having seen his side come up short to them in two finals this year.

The Sharks did look a different prospect bolstered by their returning Springboks, who more than anything bring a tremendous work-rate and x-factor to the Black and White Dynamite.

Who is Boeta Chamberlain?

A product of Paarl Boys’ High School, Chamberlain caught the eye as a schoolboy and was lured up to Durban.

Chamberlain made steady progress through the Sharks age-group rugby teams and was handed a senior debut against the Lions in the 2019 Currie Cup.

He has show great creativity in the crucial flyhalf role, particularly when it comes to tactical kicking.
