We’ve received confirmation from the Sharks that a few changes have been made to the tour squad that arrived in London this morning.

Marcell Coetzee, Keegan Daniel and Frans Steyn were all unable to tour due to slight injuries which would have precluded them taking part in Saturday’s match against Saracens. None of the three is currently in danger of missing the start of the season, though.

Jacques Botes and Monde Hadebe were late additions to the squad.

We expect the team to face Saracens to be confirmed later this afternoon.

  • @bobby 26 (Comment 3) : problem with arranging replacements at short notice is the visa… I would imagine that, as third hooker, they probably arranged a visa for Monde just in case they needed to fly him over at short notice. Imagine Kyle or Bis went down at captain’s for example.

    Lol. My grandparents were all from the Eastern Cape, hence my support for them. Also, I support the EC because its the right thing to do.
    But I grew up in the centre of civility, on the southern-most tip of Africa… in the shadow of the glorious mountain.
    Been in the UK for a loooong time, however.

  • Might be a blessing in disguise, we`re up against it this weekend anyway but it counts for nothing. Let our big boys rest.
