Natal Sharks Bibliography
The Natal Sharks are a South African rugby union team that participates in the annual Currie Cup tournament. Their home stadium is Kings Park. They draw most of their players from the KwaZulu-Natal Province. The Sharks are the current representative team of the Natal Rugby Union, founded in 1890. The team is the fourth most successful provincial union in the country having won the Currie Cup title seven times.
They won their first Currie Cup competition in 1990, the same year the union celebrated its centenary anniversary. Since then they have won the Currie Cup in 1992, 1995, 1996, 2008, 2010 and most recently in 2013. For most of their history team was known simply as 'Natal', with a nickname of 'The Banana Boys' until the mid-1990s when they were re-branded as the Sharks.
The team that plays in the Super Rugby competition is essentially the same team - they also play in Durban and draw their players from the KwaZulu-Natal area. For most of Super Rugby history, the Sharks Super Rugby franchise drew players from a much larger area than the Sharks provincial union, with the rugby unions of Border, based in East London and Eastern Province from Port Elizabeth included in the Sharks franchise.
