Belfast coach McFarland to lead defence as South African side Sharks confirm new backroom staff

Jun 25, 2021

Belfast-born coach John McFarland has joined South African franchise the Cell C Sharks as their defence coach ahead of the new season. The experienced coach joins new head coach Sean Everitt's coaching staff at the Jonsson Kings Park Stadium in Durban ahead of the start of the United Rugby Championship. Known primarily for his work with the Vodacom Bulls where he was assistant to Heyneke Meyer, McFarland helped them win three Super Rugby titles from 2001 to 2012. He has also been to two World Cups with the Springboks in a variety of roles and his experience will be crucial as the South Africans make their first foray into northern hemisphere rugby. McFarland isn't the only coach with Irish links joining the Sharks' coaching staff, with former Ireland Under-20s coach Noel McNamara appointed as their attack coach. McNamara, who also previously worked with Leinster, will work primarily with their backs, while Springboks Sevens coach Neil Powell will also join in an undefined role after the end of the Sevens World Cup. The trio will join head coach Everitt, who has signed a new deal, and forwards coach Etienne Fynn and skills coach Phiwe Nomlomo in Durban ahead of the new season. “We are pleased to have secured the expertise of these experienced coaches who not only have great coaching pedigrees, but are good people, who will fit seamlessly into our culture here at the Cell C Sharks," said Sharks chief executive Eduard Coetzee. “The result of the Rainbow Cup final played in Treviso, is a timely warning that South African rugby cannot adopt a conservative outlook, and with this in mind it is exciting to welcome these coaches to our Cell C Sharks coaching team, as they will impart their knowledge of the northern hemisphere conditions and style of play, as we prepare for our participation in a new tournament. “We have identified areas of our game that we want to improve in and will be announcing further coaching appointments in the coming weeks. We are confident that we’ve assembled a high-level technical team, who will support our head coach in the effective execution of our playing DNA, and which reaffirms our commitment of creating a winning mindset across all spheres of our business” Rugby Round Up Newsletter
