The second game of the weekend, with the first one being the untelevised game between the Pumas and the Leopards, take us to Mr Price Kings Park where the Sharks host Griquas in a match that is equally important to both teams, with both teams needing the five points to stay in touch with the leaders.
The Sharks have made a few changes to their team that went down to the Cheetahs last weekend, with Ross Cronje getting a much deserved start in the 9 jersey, with Conrad Hoffmann falling away completely as Charl McLeod comes onto the bench after his injury. Another injury returnee is Ross Skeate, who will make an impact off the bench.
Griquas have a near full strength team at their disposal, with the exception of the centres where they have had injury concers all season, and now Jean Stemmet is also ruled out. Matt Rosslee gets a rare start as Griquas have almost no other player available. The loose trio of Downey, Raubenheimer and Mokuena will give the light loosies of the Sharks a good work out.
