Following the Sharks’ come from behind victory at Newlands this weekend, coach John Plumtree had plenty of praise to stow upon his young team, noting what a great effort it was from a relatively young and inexperienced side.
Plumtree spoke to Sharksrugby.co.za after the match, conceding that Province controlled large parts of the game, especially in the first half. It took a few lucky bounces, but the Sharks showed the guts to come back, and the resilience to take the lead back after Province fought back.
The good news on the injury front is that of Paul Jordaan, who Plumtree says is fine, stating that they will “do a bit of work with him this week, but it’s nothing too serious”. This will hopefully mean that Jordaan will again be in the midfield for the Sharks, alongside Meyer Bosman whilst Tim Whitehead recovers from his hand injury.
We will also see the return of certain rested players like Anton Bresler, Charl McLeod and Louis Ludik, who will bolster the side ahead of their first home match in five weeks, against defending Currie Cup champs, the Lions.Tweet
