Former Springbok and Sharks captain John Smit has been tipped to become the new chief executive of the Sharks.

The Mercury newspaper says that “top sources” have confirmed that “it is fait accompli” that Smit would take over from the current chief executive Brian van Zyl who is due to retire in February.

Smit is currently playing for Saracens in England but is due to play his final season with French club Toulon in 2014.

However according to the report the Sharks have negotiated his release from Toulon so he could join the Sharks from July .

Smit’s appointment is to be ratified at a Sharks council meeting on Monday.

Smit is the most capped Springbok in history with 111 caps and captained the national team a record 83 times.
