  • @vanmartin (Comment 3) : Not the games ive seen. Majority at wing. Ali Williams should give PSDT a good test. And Carl Hayman will test how good we are up front

  • Looks like a damn solid team! Should be a great test for the guys first up. We might be a little rusty, here’s to hoping we put in a nice running rugby performance without getting any serious injuries.

  • Just read an article on News24 and again it shows how poor their journo’s are, according to them the only players missing from the Sharks line-up that would be regulars in the Squad are, Fransie Steyn, Willem Alberts, Thomas Du Toit and Jannie Dup?

    So according to them, Paul Jordaan, Ryan Kankowski, JPP and Stefan Lewies are not regulars?

  • Habana’s shoot up out of the line defensive frailties should leave nice garage door sized spaces for Heimar or Waylon to waltz through.
