Gary Gold has named a squad of 33 players to face the Lions in Pietermaritzburg tomorrow night.

The coach has already indicated that he will replace the entire team at half time, thus it’s safe to assume that those replacements numbered 16-30 are essentially the enture team that will take the field after the break (assuming on injury disruptions along the way).

Props Dale Chadwick and Lourens Adriaanse start the match, with Monde Hadebe between them. Etienne Oosthuizen and Marco Wentzel complete the tight five, with Khaya Majola, Jean-Luc du Preez and Philip van der Walt comprising the loose trio.

Mike Claassens and Joe Pietersen form an experienced halfback combination, with Andre Esterhuizen and Paul Jordaan combining in midfield. Interesting selections at wing see uncapped Alcino Izaacs and Charlie Mayeza take the field, with SP Marais at fullback.

In the second half, Franco Marais will be in between Juan Schoeman and Thomas du Toit (the latter at tight head), with Wiehan hay and Pieter-Steph du Toit behind them. Interestginly, Dave McDuling and Christiaan du Bruin will operate at 7 and 8, with Franna Kleinhans in his regular number 6 jersey.

Stefan Ungerer and Lionel Cronje re-unite as the halfbacks, with Wandi Mjekevu chosen as Heimar Williams’ centre partner. Garth April is the newbie at fullback, playing with experienced wingers in S’bura Sithole and Odwa Ndungane.

Tondie Chavhanga, Gerhard Engelbrecht and JC Astle are the three extra reserves.

Sharks:
15 SP Marais, 14 Charlie Mayeza, 13 Paul Jordaan, 12 Andre Esterhuizen, 11 Alcino Izaacs, 10 Joe Pietersen, 9 Michael Claassens, 8 Philip van der Walt, 7 Jean-Luc du Preez, 6 Khaya Majola, 5 Marco Wentzel, 4 Etienne Oosthuizen, 3 Lourens Adriaanse, 2 Monde Hadebe, 1 Dale Chadwick

30 Garth April, 29 Odwa Ndungane, 28 Wandile Mjekevu, 27 Heimar Williams 26 S’bura Sithole, 25 Lionel Cronje, 24 Stefan Ungerer, 23 Christiaan de Bruin, 22 Dave McDuling, 21 Francois Kleinhans, 20 Pieter-Steph du Toit, 19 Wiehan Hay, 18 Thomas du Toit, 17 Franco Marais, 16 Juan Schoeman.

31 Gerhard Engelbrecht, 32 JC Astle, 33 Tonderai Chanvahnga

  • That replacement front 5 has some serious grunt! Cant read too much into the lineups as its a preseason game and the coaches will be looking for a lot of different things.

  • Looks like they have purposefully mixed up the first and second choices here to have a pretty balanced teams on both halves.

    Will be interesting to see how some of these combinations work, although I would of like to have seen a Williams and Jordaan combination at centre, this would be my first choice pairing.

  • Dan must have picked up an injury then, I am certain he was down to play. Will be interesting to see how JL goes at this level after his injury layoff, hope he has a great performance, as with the rest of the side

  • @robdylan (Comment 2) : Thanx

    Those who are interested I will try my best to steam some footage when I get a chance. It might not be all the time as I am there with my family and also need to attend to my daughter while the game is on. My goal is to get at least 5-10min x4 streams through on youtube live while the game is on. Provided that I have a good view from my seats. As I said I will try my best. If nothing comes from it plz dont hate me :roll: :lol:

  • Can’t we do a quick round of fundraising to help you stream the whole game and cover your data bills? (Serious question)

    You may need to swap out batteries at half time though.
