Sharks Juniors make some changes

The Sharks under 21 team head into their final match of the first round needing to beat the Lions to stay in second place on the log. After initial wobbles against Western Province and the Bulls, the team did well to beat a superb Cheetahs team and will look to add the Lions to their list of victims.

Young loosehead Dale Chadwick, who made his senior Sharks début against the Leopards last week, will be back in the number 1 jersey this week, joining fellow SA Under 20 representatives Kyle Cooper and Julian Redelinghuys in the front row. Another Baby Bok, Jandre Marais, comes back into the second row this week to continue his partnership with Anton Bresler. Former Pretoria Boys’ utility forward Lee Thompson moves over to blindside flank this week, relegating Lambert Groenewald to the bench. Fellow loose forwards Siya Mdaka and Luvo Lusaseni keep their places at 6 and 8 respectively.

Captain Tian Meyer continues at flyhalf, with a new scrumhalf partner in Shannon Rick. Regular nine Alex Kock is out injured this week. The centre pairing of Gary Collins and Arno van Zyl have been retained, while there’s a change at left wing. Sevens Bok Milo Nqoro comes in for Rosco Specman, with the latter on the bench. The Michaelhouse duo of Mark Richard and Pat Lambie complete the back three.

New faces on the bench this week include hooker Hannes Snyman and Collegians flyhalf Jerome Pretorius, while utility forward Cam Dunlop comes back in after recovering from an injury sustained against the Bulls a few weeks ago. it will please KSA Sharks greatly to hear that Snyman is a Kroonstad boy too!

  • @robdylan (Comment 22) : He is a very exciting player. It was just weird how he was on the scene in a big way, and has now disappeared, not even making the bench.

  • @Bullitt (Comment 24) : yeah, but if you look at it, he’s only really dropped out of the squad since Murray came back in. I don’t think it means they’ve thrown him away, just that Murray is higher in the pcking order, which I think is right.

    Zuks’s problem is that he’s not really a wing and has never looked comfortable there.
