Finishing off the weekend is a crunch Sharks Bulls encounter at Growthpoint Kings Park.

The Sharks come off a confidence boosting away win in Bloemfontein, and will hope to carry that momentum into this match. Knowing the Bulls have come off a bad hiding, the Sharks have been talking up the opposition all week, expecting a backlash. A few changes might hinder the momentum of the Sharks team, but should be able to pull together and make sure they remain in the top half of the log.

The Bulls will have nothing to lose after their performance last week, which was only really a 20 minute period of absence. The Sharks will do well to forget about that match and expect a very strong Bulls team to show up tonight. The big talking point for the Bulls is the first start for young Handre Pollard, who lines up across from Fred Zeilinga, and potentially Butch James later, so he might want to ensure his medical aid is up to date.

Sharks: 15. SP Marais, 14. Odwa Ndungane, 13. Louis Ludik, 12. Heimar Williams, 11. Lwazi Mvovo, 10. Fred Zeilinga, 9. Cobus Reinach, 8. Jacques Botes, 7. Jean Deysel, 6. Keegan Daniel, 5. Marco Wentzel, 4. Peet Marais, 3. Wiehahn Herbst, 2. Craig Burden, 1. Dale Chadwick.

Substitutes: 16. Kyle Cooper, 17. Rayno Gerber, 18. Edwin Hewitt, 19. Justin Downey, 20. Charl McLeod, 21. Butch James, 22. Jaco van Tonder

Blue Bulls:15 JΓΌrgen Visser, 14 Sampie Mastriet, 13 Waylon Murray, 12 Ulrich Beyers, 11 Akona Ndungane, 10 HandrΓ© Pollard, 9 Ruan Snyman, 8 Jono Ross (captain), 7 Jacques du Plessis, 6 Wiaan Liebenberg, 5 Grant Hattingh, 4 Paul Willemse, 3 Frik Kirsten, 2 Mbongeni Mbonambi, 1 MornΓ© Mellett

Substitutes: 16 Bandise Maku, 17 Werner Kruger, 18 David Bullbring, 19 Jacques Engelbrecht, 20 Rudy Paige, 21 Tiaan Schoeman, 22 Clayton Blommetjies

  • Guys, could you please include kick off times and who the officials are in these posts? We’re (I’m) too lazy to search the net after a Saturday afternoon braai and, besides, view Sharksworld as a one stop rugby info portal. :mrgreen:

  • Not happy about Cobus’ pass and speed to the ruck…SLOW! His pass is therefore making our game slow. We need a quality 9…our 9’s need to step up.
