The Baby Sharks get their campaign off the ground today when they take on Boland at the ABSA Stadium.

The match takes place on KP2 and kicks off at 3pm.

The Baby Sharks will be led by big number 8 Meyer Swanepoel and will feature a fair few players who played in last year’s final, which the under 21s narrowly lost to the Bulls.

15 Wynand Pienaar, 14 Mark Richards, 13 Arno van Zyl, 12 Howard Mnisi, 11 Rosco Speckman, 10 Willie du Plessis, 9 Cobus Reinach, 8 Meyer Swanepoel (capt), 7 Lambert Groenewald, 6 Jaco Otto (no relation), 5 Peet Marais, 4 Jandre Marais, 3 Julz Redelinghuys, 2 Hannes Snyman, 1 Dale Chadwick.
Subs: 16 Shaun Malton, 17 Dexter Fahey, 18 Tim Agaba, 19 Cam Dunlop, 20 Charlie Purdon, 21 Piet Lindeque, 22 Gouws Prinsloo

  • Talk ubout Lindeque making it into the Currie cup side – surprised to see him benched for U21′s …

  • Its frightening to think that Lambie qualifies for this team… I must confess, I am a bit far removed from the Junior Sharks, do we have any prodigy type players here who could make the step up to S15 / Currie Cup?

  • Richards is the clear star in this team, IMO… Lindeque clearly also has plenty of talent.

    The tight five is very solid, while Groenewald is a very exciting player.

  • @robdylan (Comment 3) : Very good news to hear indeed, I saw the Sharksrugby website was punting Richards quite a bit… I don’t see his stats anywhere, he seems like quite a big winger – not a future option at 13?

    Not impressed with The Sharks website, its in desperate need of an update, especially the players and stats etc…

  • @DarkDestroyer (Comment 4) : ummm – no. Richards is not very big at all… something like 1.78 and 80kgs.

    But I do think his future is at 13 anyway

  • @robdylan (Comment 5) : Hmmmm… maybe Grant Bashford made him seem like a giant… LOL… Interesting to see what becomes of him at The Sharks, as centre is a headache of note…

  • @DarkDestroyer (Comment 6) : I think he needs to stop playing wing ASAP, to be honest, cos he’s not going to play ahead of Mvovo, Mapoe and Pietersen… Odwa and Ludik are also in the reckoning, along with another very promising youngster in Sbu Sithole.

    Fullback is a possibility and he did well there in the Vodacom Cup, but with Lambie and Ludik in the mix, that’s also looking a little dodgy. Outside centre might just be his niche.

  • Any one see the article in the mercury about Jaques Louis Potgieter in talks with the sharks ? Apparently his contract is only for a year and then he is a free agent ! Could become a valuable member for the super 15 ! For once it seems like they are not looking at ” has beens “.

  • @King Deysel (Comment 10) : Glad to see we have another Deysel fan onboard… Be interesting to see how big his fan base is compared to the current Bok loosies in the mix… JLP is an interesting prospect with his versatility, and The Sharks love versatility… ;-) … Meyer Bosman is also on his way post 2010, which sees us with a very big squad suddenly…

    In true festival style, tighthead Julian Redelinghuys took the final conversion.
