The Sharks XV welcome back a number of key players for tomorrow night’s must-win clash with Boland in Pietermaritzburg. Having lost to South Western Districts in round 3, Sean Everitt’s team are up against it and can’t afford to slip up again this season.

The tight five shows continuity, with all of last week’s starting players retained. Four of the five have played together for a number of seasons now with the Sharks under 19 and under 21 teams and all know each other well. Justin Downey returns to the number 6 jersey, having been rested for the George trip. Skollie Ndlovu drops to the bench, where there are a number of other changes. Hooker Hannes Snyman comes back into the 22 and stalwart Sabz Nhlapo has been given the week off as a result. Dale Chadwick will be the reserve prop this week.

Key changes in the backline see Andries Strauss and Charl McLeod back in at inside centre and scrumhalf respectively, replacing Trompie Pretorius and Ross Cronje, who both drop to the bench. Strauss also reclaims the captaincy after missing out through injury last week.

The game takes place at Woodburn Stadium in Pietermaritzburg and kicks off at 7pm. Tickets are priced between R20 and R30 and can be bought at the gate.

Sharksworld will be happy to reimburse entry costs for the first five people to email us proof that they paid to attend the game.

  • @JarsonX (Comment 8) : one of the major goals of the Vodacom Cup is to take rugby outside of the traditional centres of the game.

  • @JarsonX (Comment 8) : The SHarks 15 played one home game and had about 75 people, can’t blame them for taking it to places where people might actually support them.

  • @Pokkel (Comment 30) : Pokkel, hit the jack pot with Brumbies..on our bru pool :cool: I got it spot on with the Lions/Landers game though :razz:

    Can someone here tell us who the ref is for the Sharks/Canes game tomorrow? Watched the kiwi show last night Reunion and they have doubts about this ref. Don’t think he is up to much. Heard Mexted say the samething while watching the Lions game this morning. So who is reffing our game? Are we going to struggle with bad calls again tomorrow? Hard enough just to play the Canes without having a not up to standard ref. :roll:

  • @RuckingFun (Comment 29) : just trying to do my bit to get the support out there for the XV. R20 isn’t a lot, sure, but it’s the gesture that counts.

    If you can send us a match report, or pictures of the players after the game, you can earn yourself Sharksworld points. Or even better, give us live score updates via cell phone if you can.

    Without all the second string games, the club games etc there would be no Sharks.
