Allister Coetzee announced his side to take on the Sharks in Durban this coming Saturday.
Fabian Juries has been left out of the match 22 altogether with his place going to promising Maties and WP U21 winger JJ Engelbrecht. Nick Koster drops to the bench despite having a good outing on the openside flank and his place is taken by the bulky Rynhardt Elstadt.
Coetzee made it clear that greater mobility is needed against the in-form Sharks side.
“We know the Sharks are all about attack and we have chosen a squad with that in mind,” said Coetzee.
“We have done our homework and we know it is going to be a helluva tough game but it’s a challenge we will enjoy.”
