Brad in, BJ out

Some late-breaking news about changes to the Sharks team for tomorrow night’s match against the Valke in Durban.

Brad Barritt has been passed fit to play and will wear the number 12 jersey. Andries Strauss drops to the bench and young Riaan Swanepoel out of the 22 altogether.

In yet a further injury setback, tighthead prop BJ Botha has been ruled out with a back injury. His place in the starting XV goes to Robbie Harris, although it’s not certain at this stage whether Harris will come straight in at tighthead, or will rather operate in the number 1 jersey with Jannie du Plessis switching back to his preferred position.

No news has been forthcoming on Botha’s replacement in the 22, but it might just be young Melusi “Burra” Mthethwa who gets the nod.

Sharks (probable):

15 Terblanche, 14 Jordaan, 13 Murray, 12 Barritt, 11 Bodmer, 10 Dumond, 9 Mathie, 8 Daniel, 7 N Strauss, 6 Botes, 5 Muller (capt), 4 van den Berg, 3 du Plessis, 2 Badenhorst, 1 Harris
16 Burden, 17 Mthethwa, 18 Blignaut, 19 Ndlovu, 20 Macleod, 21 Michalak, 22 A Strauss

    Not likeable ….I normally go on “Ice can be very HOT”…this weather is not helpin my cause.. :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

    Agree Debs….dont like Scott…sorry..AT ALL… now that we know the names…I think th etwo that can go places from Saturday is Charl and DEfnitely Riaan Swanepoel – I think Wildman can go in the place of Sykes and he can return to lock – he looks more comfortable there at this stage…

  • Hi Debs.

    Henno has never had hands. I feel sorry for his ladyfriend. Strong and quick bugger though – a sentimental choice.

    Still, Jordaan looked exciting last week. Would love to see him with some space.

    Really hope Waylon has a good game – if not, I might have to go to Durban just to shoot him and put an end to his shame.

  • Roberto, sorry for being so scarce. Been a very busy boy lately. Hardly had time for the finer things in life of late.

    Thankfully, I am not working tomorrow, so I will have some time to annoy some people on line and get in touch with my inner child. :razz:

  • Yeah, it will be good to yack for a change. Lately I have been talking almost only in Caesar’s interest.

    I hope to catch the Tank tomorrow – I fear he has gone unharassed far too long.

    Its like letting a wildebeest population grow unchecked – not healthy at all.
