Sharks welcome back three Springboks

Monty Dumond will start at flyhalf for the Sharks against the Lions in Joburg this weekend, with both other goal-kicking options, Rory Kockott and Juan Hernández, ruled out through injury. Deon Carstens, Jannie du Plessis and Odwa Ndungane all make their return to the side.

Carstens comes straight into the starting lineup in his preferred loose-head prop position, but due to the last-minute haggling with SARU over du Plessis’s availability, the doctor will be on the bench this week. Wiehahn Herbst and Dale Chadwick drop out of the squad as Pat Cilliers once again starts at tighthead, after filling in for Carstens on the other side of teh scrum against the Leopards.

The only other changes to the pack are rotational, with Jacques Botes and Craig Burden back in the starting lineup, with Keegan Daniel and Skipper Badenhorst relegated to the bench.

Charl McLeod will again be at scrumhalf and Odwa Ndungane is back at right wing, meaning that Chris Jordaan drops out. The rest of the backline is unchanged from the Leopards game. The Cronjé twins are both on the bench, together with Waylon Murray, who will hopefully be considered for a starting spot in the near future.

15. Stefan Terblanche (captain)
14. Odwa Ndungane

7. Jean Deysel
6. Jacques Botes

21. Guy Cronje
22. Waylon Murray

  • Also good for the youngsters to learn their place and create that hunger. We have tons of options at 9 and 10 now, and with all the Boks back and for the S14 next year which is really healthy for us.

  • Is Luzuko Vulindlu injured? If not, you have got to feel sorry for the guy that he is not being picked. He was playing well. Mvovo is also very promising though. Tough.

    Not sure what’s up with Zuks. Was hoping to see him back with the under 21s. You are spot-on about Mvov’s, though. Huge talent

  • @robdylan (Comment 29) :

    I supposed it’s difficult when you’re a “veteran” and a new guy like Lwazi just bursts through with all this energy. Odwa is Mr. Reliable – and I think we need to have a wing like that – just to keep it balanced.

  • @blackshark (Comment 31) : maybe you’re right… I mean, Oddy is only 27 or so (or is he older than that) and Stef has shown that you can keep going well into your 30s. You just need to substitute experience and guile for out-and-out pace. I just don’t feel that Odwa has really been giving his all this season, though. He used to be everywhere but now you don’t see him as much.

    I’d love to have him at fullback.

    Don’t think Odwa would appreciate the “old head” part…but yeah…something like that. :razz:

    I hope someone in The Think-Tank has thought about this – and they are secretly working on his tactical kicking etc.
