A few days after the Super 14 kicked off, the genius squad over at Sharks HQ finally got around to announcing a 34-man squad for the competition!

The ironic thing about it is that it’s already out-of-date, with Gerhard Mostert understood to be all-but-certainly ruled out for the entire competition. The former Lion dislocated his shoulder in the tenth minute of Saturday’s game against the Crusaders.

The squad has a very predictable look to it, with a number of youngsters who featured in last year’s Currie Cup making the grade – including Pat Lambie, Wiehahn Herbst and Mike Rhodes. The only other new faces are those of Louis Ludik, Willem Alberts and the unfortunate Mostert.

Here is the squad:

Props:
Deon Carstens, Patric Cilliers, Jannie du Plessis, Wiehahn Herbst, Tendai Mtawarira, John Smit
Hookers:
Bismarck du Plessis, Craig Burden
Locks:
Johann Muller, Alistair Hargreaves, Steven Sykes, Gerhard Mostert
Loose Forwards:
Willem Alberts, Keegan Daniel, Jacques Botes, Michael Rhodes, Skholiwe Ndlovu, Ryan Kankowski, Jean Deysel
Scrumhalves:
Rory Kockott, Charl McLeod
Flyhalves:
Monty Dumond, Ruan Pienaar
Centres:
Andries Strauss, Riaan Swanepoel, Adi Jacobs, Waylon Murray
Wings:
Odwa Ndungane, JP Pietersen, Lwazi Mvovo, Luzuko Vulindlu
Fullbacks:
Stefan Terblanhce, Louis Ludik, Patrick Lambie

  • happy with the number of youngsters. I hope they will get to play though. Not like Ross Cronje last year.

  • @robdylan (Comment 7) : From Supersport article with heading “Lock crisis for the Sharks”: Former Lions fullback Louis Ludik will play for a Sharks XV in the curtain-raiser to the Cheetahs game and if he comes through it he will leave with the rest of the squad the next morning as they go on tour.

  • I would put Rhodes on the bench to cover lock this weekend if Muller still needs some time to recover.

  • @JJR (Comment 11) : yeah, there is not really a crisis, “no lock cover on the bench” uh, that would just be stupid
