BRIEF: Sharks signed to Roc Nation

Jay Z investing in local rugby? You heard right. The Sharks have just become the hippest local team, following interest from the international rap icon, aka Beyonce’s husband. Roc Nation Sports purchased a minority stake in the team. Sharks CEO Eduard Coetzee told SA Rugby Mag: “Roc Nation will assist in growing our fan base in new territories and will ensure that our approach will always be of an international standard.” This win could potentially bring about some big changes in the team. According to IOL, there have been rumors that Springbok captain, Siya Kolisi, who is represented by Roc Nation Sports International, may join the boys in black.
