January 12, 2000
South African flanker AJ Venter's provincial side are refusing to release him to play Super 12 for the Sharks.
The Lions, the provincial side he plays for, supply players to the Cats Super 12 side but Venter has caused the problem by training and showing a willingness to play for the rival Sharks.
Venter has stated that Natal is where he wants to play his Currie Cup and Super 12 rugby from now on.
