Chavhanga back in business

JOHANNESBURG - Former Springbok wing Tonderai Chavhanga has been spotted training with the Sharks ahead of this year's Super Rugby competition.Chavhanga, 30, in recent years played for Welsh team Newport Gwent Dragons, but was plagued by injuries in the past couple of seasons.

He joined the Cheetahs ahead of last year's Currie Cup, but hardly featured.

The Zimbabwean-born speedster started his career in the Cheetahs' age group ranks and also represented Western Province, Stormers and the Lions.

Chavhanga earned four Springbok Test caps between 2005-2008, and holds the South African record for the number of tries scored in one game, six, in his Springbok debut in their 134-3 thrashing of Uruguay in 2005.

He now has a chance to resurrect his career at the Sharks if he can prove his fitness and form to new coach Jake White.

White was also Springbok coach when Chavhanga made the national team. - Agencies

I suggest he plays for Sables since there is no chance he will be back into Springbok squad.
