The Sharks have confirmed that Beast Mtawarira, Willem Alberts and Kyle Cooper have all been passed fir to play in Saturday’s Currie Cup Final.
Alberts hasn’t seen any action since leaving the field on a stretcher during the first half of the Springboks’ final Rugby Championship game. His neck injury has now cleared up and he will be able to play in the domestic showpiece. Prop Mtawarira was a late injury withdrawal ahead of last weekend’s semi-final, but he too comes back into the mix this week,
Hooker Cooper took a blow to the shoulder against the Cheetahs, but also isn’t seriously injured enough to put his participation in the Final in doubt; this is especially important given that Bismarck du Plessis is currently attending a disciplinary hearing that may see him miss out.
The Sharks have yet to clear Jannie du Plessis and Jean Deysel, the other two injury doubts in the squad at the moment.Tweet
