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The ironic thing about it is that it’s already out-of-date, with Gerhard Mostert understood to be all-but-certainly ruled out for the entire competition.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:

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