John Smit has opted to bolster his Barney’s Army squad with two youngsters drawn from the Sharks Vodacom Cup and under 21 ranks.
We’re expecting Smit’s line-up to be confirmed this morning, but our understanding is that Sharks XV prop Danie Mienie and centre Heimar Williams will be included in the 22. Based on the enthusiastic response from both players on Twitter, one can only assume that realise what a huge honour and privilege it is to be named – and to play – amongst to many former great of the game.
There’s also a pretty good opportunity to show John Plumtree what they can do, in direct opposition to those playing ahead of them for the Sharks!
Congrats to both Danie and Heimar and enjoy the experience, boys.Tweet
