The weekend of rugby comes to a spectacular end in Durban where the Sharks host Western Province at Mr Price Kings Park, hoping to get their campaign back on track after a loss in Kimberley last weekend which cost them the top spot on the log.

A few changes in the Sharks team sees Tim Whitehead return after breaking his hand, a sure boost to the Sharks backline that has been struggling with Riaan Viljoen in charge. Will we see him dropped earlier in the match in an attempt to get Bosman to run the show earlier? Pieter Dixon makes his first start ahead of Monde Hadebe, who has done really well so far in his new role.

For Western Province, the Springbok call-up of Frans Malherbe has only dented their bench, with only one casualty in Rynhardt Elstadt after last weekend’s win over the Cheetahs, Elstadt being replaced by Tyrone Holmes at the side of the scrum. There is also the return of danger man Joe Pietersen to the bench, and he is likely to see action at some point in the game.

Sharks: 15. Louis Ludik, 14. Odwa Ndungane, 13. Tim Whitehead, 12. Meyer Bosman, 11. Rosco Speckman, 10. Riaan Viljoen, 9. Cobus Reinach, 8. Keegan Daniel (Capt), 7. Jean Deysel, 6. Jacques Botes, 5. Anton Bresler, 4. Jandre Marais, 3. Wiehahn Herbst, 2. Pieter Dixon, 1. Dale Chadwick
Replacements

16. Monde Hadebe, 17. Julian Redelinghuys, 18. Peet Marais, 19. Brynard Stander, 20. Charl McLeod, 21. Marius Joubert, 22. S’bura Sithole

Western Province: 15 Gio Aplon, 14 Gerhard van den Heever, 13 JP du Plessis, 12 Marcel Brache, 11 Damian de Allende, 10 Demetri Catrakilis, 9 Nic Groom, 8 Jebb Sinclair, 7 Tyrone Holmes, 6 Deon Fourie (c), 5 De Kock Steenkamp, 4 Don Armand, 3 Brok Harris, 2 Siyabonga Ntubeni, 1 Deon Carstens

Replacements: 16 Steven Kitshoff, 17 Tom Botha, 18 Wilhelm van der Sluys, 19 Helmut Lehmann, 20 Louis Schreuder, 21 Kurt Coleman, 22 Joe Pietersen

  • That pitch is still very wet…

    Why don’t they lift the pitch and put a draining system in…like Coke Park…

    I once played cricket and the game stopped for one of those highveld thunder storm and the M2 highway (runs right passed Coke park) was literally a river…20 min later the Lions played and it was dry…

  • @Franshark (Comment 91) : Dude I know that! But seriously, was playing for a penalty try the right option with 1 minute to go?? They could easily have duffed that last try with a knock on or something, especially given the conditions. Just get it to one of the back rowers or back liners and let them flop down over the line in one of the gazillion gaps there will be when there are THREE men off the field. :roll:

  • @Franshark (Comment 98) : ja Dixon played well. Wonder what they will do next week as I am sure Burden will be back, will they use Dixon on the bench? Hope Lambie will be released to play for the Sharks next week, he needs to get some game time!

    The Lions forwards had been looking solid for a good few games…and you’ll need to be a bit better than tonight to show them up up-front…

  • @Hmmm (Comment 102) : Yes they have been good, but I do think Sharks are super fit as in most games they were in conrol from about 30min on. It’s going to be hard in Jozi but I do feel we can beat them there if they Sharks play like they can and not like they did last week.

  • @JD (Comment 103) :

    The Lions have won all there last 3 games in the last 30…against WP / Bulls / Cheetahs…

    So that alone won’t be enough to win upfront…plus we turnover more ball at rucks than the Sharks…plus the Lions outscored by double with a 3rd of the possession…

  • @Hmmm (Comment 104) : Yes they’re doing well with much less possession but some where the lack of possession is going to bite the lions. You can’t give away 2/3 possession in every game and win all the games. Going to be a cracker of a game, but I do think Sharks have atleast a 50/50 shot at winning it.

  • @Hmmm (Comment 104) : @JD (Comment 105) : Oooh Sharks are definitely the underdogs going to Jo’burg.

    Lions should be able to just arrive for the game and pick up their bonus point win. Hopefully the Sharks can at least scrape a losing bonus point…. :mrgreen:
