Beast bids au revoir to Sharks
Tendai Mtawarira has confirmed that he will be looking for a new challenge in France after the 2015 Super Rugby season.
Mtawarira has spent eight seasons at the costal franchise and now says he needs a new challenge, but not before helping the Sharks win the Super Rugby trophy and the Springboks the World Cup in England.
"My goals for 2015 is to help the Sharks do well in Super Rugby and to help the Springboks win the World Cup. That would be a dream come true," Mtawarira told MyPlayers
The burly loosehead prop has been a fine servant to South African rugby after relocating from his native Zimbabwe.
He is now on the look out for a new challenge and sees France as the idea destination for his playing career as well as for his young family.
"My preferred destination would be France," he continued.
"While many South Africans are heading to Japan, France is an attractive destination for my playing career and my young family.
"I'll get to play against some of the world's toughest front rows in Europe, which will be a great experience.
"I'll get to learn much more about the game in foreign conditions. 
"Off the field, my family and I will have the chance to travel and explore new countries."
A true crowd favourite, Mtawarira is well aware of his battle-cry that sounds around most stadiums when ever he gets the ball.
I first noticed the chants when I started playing for the senior team. It definitely motivated me to make a big impact," said Mtawarira.
"It's been awesome to see how many rugby fans have adopted the call, including those supporting the other team!
"I hear supporters call my name even when I played outside South Africa. I'll only probably realise how special this has been when I eventually hang up my boots."
