Sharks lock Ross Skeate has confirmed via Twitter that he won’t be leaving with the rest of the Sharks squad when they head out on tour after tomorrow’s game against the Reds.

Skeate, who left the field early against the Lions after injuring his hip, says he hopes to be able to join up with the squad at a later date during the tour.

This presumably means that Jandre Marais, named on the bench for tomorrow’s clash, will be included in the tour party, since the Sharks can’t possibly travel with Anton Bresler and Steven Sykes as the only locks in the party.

We’re hoping that the Sharks will confirm the final tour squad later today.

    Good call that, especially against the Force, could be smashing some points!
