After two years in charge of the Sharks, both as a head coach and most recently as a director of Rugby, Gary Gold is quitting the franchise for an opportunity closer to home.

Gold wants to return to his family in Cape Town to pursue another potentially exciting avenue in his rugby career.
It’s uncertain what Golds new job will be.
The Sharks have announced that Robert du Preez will take over the Super Rugby coaching role after his first season as a head coach in the Currie Cup.
