Coach John Plumtree has made minimal changes to his team for Saturday’s Neo Africa Tri-Series match against the Stormers, with Stefan Terblanche taking over the captaincy for this match.

In the only change to the front row, either Bismarck du Plessis or Craig Burden will play at hooker, the former subject to a late fitness test having injured his shoulder in a farm accident.

A new second row partnership of Anton Bresler and Gerhard Mostert replaces Ross Skeate and Alistair Hargreaves. There was some good news about the latter who went down badly in the game against the Lions and had to be taken to hospital.

Scans on his injured spine have shown no structural damage and he may recover in time to be eligible for selection for The Sharks’ opening Vodacom Super Rugby clash with the Cheetahs on February 19, in Durban, coach John Plumtree has confirmed. Ross Skeate, also injured in that match, will miss the Cheetahs’ game because of a fractured finger but should have recovered by Round Two when The Sharks take on the Blues, also at home.

The loose-forward trio remains unchanged as does the half-back pairing of Charl McLeod and Patrick Lambie. With the knock that Louis Ludik took in Tuesday night’s game, Odwa Ndungane shifts from the wing to fullback, opening the door for Lwazi Mvovo to start the match after scoring a try as a replacement in the Lions’ game.

The match kicks off at 5pm and will be televised live on SuperSport.

  • Three specialist wings in the back three. Not a bad call and Ndungane has played there quite a few times.

  • Have to be honest, I care about as much about these warm-up games as a care for a midweek practice session.

    All I’m interested in is that the players get some good match practice & no injuries.

  • I watched Jean-Baptist Gobelet playing for France. He looks big in the normal 15-man game. So in 7s he looks like a monster. Anyway Gobelet powered over for a try and then forced one of our tiny Saffa players (Deyzel I think) over the deadball line while he was trying to run around in the ingoal area and dot down under the posts. If he’d just dotted it down in the corner, BB’s would have won. Stuuupid mistake!

    No. No Bonus Points.

    Win = 3 points
    Draw = 2 points
    Loss = 1 points
    No show = 0 points

    The 1st two teams in each pool go through to the 1/4 finals. With the 1st placed team playing the 2nd placed team from another pools and the 2nd placed team facing the 1st placed team from another pool.

    The pumas question?

    I know what I think but I KNOW that is wrong. :)

    They are called Los Pumas even though there is a Jaguar on their logo. Maybe the Argentinians refer to Jaguars as Pumas in their language.

    They were refered to as the Jaguars when they toured SA as a non IRB sanctioned team in 1984.

    Yip it’s a Jaguar.

    Union: Unión Argentina de Rugby
    Emblem(s): Yaguareté (the South American jaguar)

    But that also shows that the Argentinian word for Jaguar is Yaguareté disproving my theory that they don’t have a word for Jaguar.
