Putting together a couple of pieces of news that are emerging, it starts to appear as though former Lions lock Gerhard Mostert will return to the Sharks squad to face his old team this weekend.
Mostert, who moved to the Sharks in the off-season after spending most of the 2009 season on the injury list, duly re-dislocated the same shoulder within 5 minutes of his Sharks debut, against the Chiefs in the Super 14. He has been involved in rehabilitation ever since and has come through a few weeks of club rugby unscathed.
With Ross Skeate out injured until at least the semi-finals and both Anton Bresler and Michael Rhodes released to play for College Rovers in the National Club Champs in Stellenbosch this week (Rhodes scored a try against UJ on Monday), Mostert seems a pretty clear candidate to make the squad this weekend, probably in the number 18 jersey. This is basically through a process of elimination, cos there’s nobody else!Tweet
