Let’s hope that last week’s rather unexpected loss against the EP Kings was just the wake up call that the Sharks under 21s needed. Michael Horaks’ team travel to Potchefstroom for a must-win game against the Leopards on Saturday afternoon.

Centre Marius Louw is out injured, necessitating a back line reshuffle. Tristan Blewett moves from outside centre to the number 12 jersey, with Marcel Coetzee likewise moving one spot in from the right wing. Kelvin Elder shifts up from the bench to start at fullback, with Morne Joubert moving onto the wing. Ruben de Vos and Jaya Juries are retained in the halfback positions and both will need to deliver a far more commanding performance this week.

A single change in the pack sees Rikus Zwart start at lock in place of Wian Vosloo. Mzamo Majola again captains the side from loosehead prop.

Danrich Visagie and Bandisa Ndlovu come into the match 22 as replacements.

Sharks under 21: 15 Kelvin Elder, 14 Morne Joubert, 13 Marcel Coetzee, 12 Tristan Blewett, 11 Malcolm Cele, 10 Ruben de Vos, 9 Jaywinn Juries, 8 Ayron Schramm, 7 Johan du Toit, 6 Graham Geldenhuys, 5 Hyron Andrews, 4 Rikus Zwart, 3 Ruan Kramer, 2 Kerron van Vuuren, 1 Mzamo Majola (captain)
Replacements: 16 Erich Kankowski, 17 Mthunzi Moloi, 18 Bandisa Ndlovu, 19 Michael Meyer, 20 Damien Stevens, 21 Danrich Visagie, 22 Justin Newman


  • Just 2 questions: Is Sbu Nkosi still injured? and is the loose trio of Geldenhuys, Du Toit and Shramm worth investing in more going forward than the seasoned Khaya Majola and Francois Kleinhans?
