The Sharks team to face Western Province in the Currie Cup final this weekend see only two changes from the team that took down the Cheetahs last weekend..
Willem Alberts and Jannie du Plessis replace Jean Deysel and Wiehahn Herbst respectively, while the rest of the team remains unchanged.
Jean Deysel has not recovered sufficiently from his hamstring strain to take his place in the match 22, which allows Jacques Botes to play off the bench.
The backline is completely unchanged, allowing key combinations to start where they finished last week. Hopefully we will see the likes of Pat Lambie and Frans Steyn fire from the get go.
Sharks: 15 SP Marais, 14 Odwa Ndungane, 13 Louis Ludik, 12 Francois Steyn, 11 Lwazi Mvovo, 10 Patrick Lambie, 9 Charl McLeod, 8 Keegan Daniel (captain), 7 Willem Alberts, 6 Marcell Coetzee, 5 Pieter-Steph du Toit, 4 Peet Marais, 3 Jannie du Plessis, 2 Bismarck du Plessis, 1 Tendai Mtawarira.
Substitutes: 16 Kyle Cooper, 17 Wiehahn Herbst, 18 Stephan Lewies, 19 Jacques Botes, 20 Cobus Reinach, 21 Fred Zeilinga, 22 Heimar Williams.Tweet
