Mike Rhodes will start at lock for the Sharks against Griquas tonight, after Alistair Hargreaves has been ruled out with injury.
Rhodes, who was down to provide loose forward cover off the bench, is an equally capable second-rower, who will come into the number 5 jersey to make his first start for the Sharks at lock.
Rhodes’s position on the bench will be taken by loose forward Skholiwe Ndlovu, who last featured in the second-round tie against the Blue Bulls.

15 Dumond, 14 Ndungane, 13 Terblanche (capt), 12 Strauss, 11 Mvovo, 10 Lambie, 9 McLeod, 8 Daniel, 7 Alberts, 6 Botes, 5 Rhodes, 4 Sykes, 3 Herbst, 2 du Plessis, 1 Mtawarira
