Sharks under 21 coach Deon Kayser has named a strong line-up to contest his side’s season opener against the Leoaprds tomorrow afternoon at Growthpoint Kings Park.#

Scrumhalf Stefan Ungerer, a veteran of the game at this level who now also has a few Super Rugby caps to his name, leads a side that features additional Super Rugby experience in the form of Tim Swiel and Junior Bok Andre Esterhuizen. Swiel, who has started a few games at flyhalf for the senior Sharks this year, will play at fullback as another Junior Bok, Jean-Luc du Plessis, has been entrsuted with the number 10 jersey.

Tyler Fisher, whom Jake White included as a fullback option in his 49-man Super Rugby squad, will operate in his more familiar outside centre position and renew a partnership formed with Esterhuizen at this level in 2013. Alcino Izaavs and Alrin Eksteen are the wingers.

Up front, the Sharks boast less experience. Jean Pretorius and Ray Williams played at under 19 level last year, but the likes of Sias Koen (flank) and Ferdie Horn (lock) are new to the province this year. Front rankers Jacques Taylor and Matt Jones have played at this level before, as has the other lock, “Danger” Dave Fisher.

15. Tim Swiel

  • Pity about Gideon Keogelenberg, I hear he’s injured again. Got to feel for the boy, think he played more games for the Sharks while he was still at school than he has since leaving school. Such a pity because he’s a very good player!!!

  • Ive seen Isaacs play, speedy with legs that look like they are one tackle away from breaking.
