Orca's the reason for the Great Whites being MIA ?

Very likely, the Orca are the prime predator and will remove competion in an area. They gang up on a shark and are faster.

Cape Talk's John Maytham had an interesting discussion with Marine biologist Dr Sara Andreotti on the topic, there is a link to the interview here: http://www.capetalk.co.za/articles/359131/killer-whales-not-to-blame-for-disappearance-of-great-white-sharks-in-false-bay

Clearly you are not a animal behaviorists ... Google away... sharks are Orca prey, period. :sip:

... sharks are Orca prey, period.

You might note the fact that neither of my links attempt to claim otherwise. They do point out that orcas snacking on sharks is not exactly unheard of in our waters, and also that there is a long and sordid history of said snacking in our maritime history.
