One of the few bright spots in a few poor years the Sharks
With him and Alexander gone - going to be an interesting summer - only British fringe players brought back and none of them should be seen as main players. Tuck back so see what happens but without the above 2 we certainly would not have made the playoffs.
Huge fan of Dirks, shame hes gone. Is there confirmation Alexander has signed elsewhere?
A lot of talk around about the time of the launch of the new main sponsors was about cutting some of the budget from the starting 5 to allow for a deeper bench. As part of this the big hitters e.g. Alexander were being asked to take a wage cut or at least no additions. I think it's fair to say his signing would depend on his agreement to a cut. Dirk going can only be a help in this area.
I've posted elsewhere about keeping a balance of a good starting 5 but yet improving the bench. Not an easy job with a tight budget.
Incidentally not heard anything official about signings since that launch day. Been very quiet in that department as a certain person has identified in another thread.
