We tend to forget just how young some of our Currie Cup squad are! Sharks under 21 coaches Deon Kayser and Albert van den Berg have been able to include Johan Meyer in their team for this weekend’s game against the Bulls and will use his senior experience to help turn a tough upfront battle.

Amongst the backs, the only changes are at wing, with Lex Botha replacing Mike Cloete on the right and Alrin Eksteen swapping places with Sipho Mkhize on the other side.

Meyer’s inclusion at flank sees Liam O’Connell move into the second row, the only other change to the starting line-up.

Sharks Under 21s: 15. Alcino Izaacs, 14. Lex Botha, 13. Nkululeko Marwana , 12. Sandile Kubeka, 11. Alrin Eksteen, 10. Brendan Cope, 9. Hanco Venter , 8. Louis Hazelhurst, 7. Johan Meyer, 6. Sias Koen, 5. Liam O’Connell, 4. Buzwe Mpotulo, 3. Marne Coetzee, 2. Jacques Taylor (capt), 1. Barend Potgieter
Replacements: 16. Cullen Collopy, 17. Brandon Landsberg, 18. David Fisher, 19. Sabata Mokhachane , 20. Jacques Fick, 21. Tyler Fisher, 22. Sipho Mkhize

  • @robdylan (Comment 12) : I just brought the thread up to date. Hate to see it left unfinished.

    But that u19 result was a surprise, not just the win but the margin too. But it helps if you have a Bok playing for the u19s :)
