Meyer set to return to Sharks

South African flyhalf Steve Meyer is to leave French champions Perpignan and return home to play for the Sharks, club president Paul Goze announced here on Thursday.

The 25-year-old will join the Durban-based club next week in time to prepare for the new Super-14 season.

Meyer left the Sharks in 2006 to play for Perpignan but his time in France has been troubled by injuries sidelining him for months.

“Steve has had nothing but bad luck with us with one injury after another,” Goze said.

“But he has always given his all in trying to get back to full fitness and in no way do we want to stand in the way of his career.” — Sapa
