The Sharks team to face the Bulls at Loftus this weekend has been announced, and sees a few changes to the forward pack, as our psychic Rob Otto predicted.
In the front row we see Eugene van Staden coming in for Wiehahn Herbst, as the two continue their rotation. In the second row there will be a start for Jandre Marais, who replaces Anton Bresler. The loose trio gets shuffled with Keegan Daniel captaining from the side of the scrum, with Marcell Coetzee on the on the other flank and Jean Deysel ankering the scrum from eighthman.
The backline is unchanged, unfortunately, with Conrad Hoffmann and Adi Jacobs covering from the bench. Herbst and Bresler are joined on the bench by Kyle Cooper, Al Hargreaves and Jacques Botes. With Ryan Kankowski out for a few weeks with an injured hand, the coach has selected two locks on the bench, who I am sure can cover flank should there be a need.
