The Sharks travel to that Phokeng place up North to take on the Leopards.
The Sharks have lost a few of the regained Springboks and the ones who have been released for the weekend are playing off the bench due to limited time with the team during the week.
The Leopards’ scrumhalf Michael Bondesio, will no doubt be a thorn in the side of Rory Kockott. At the time of writing Bondesio is still not a confirmed starter due to injury.
Lwazi Mvovo has been in great for this season and it should be interesting to see how effective he can be against a smaller union.
Try frenzy anyone?
