In some good news from the Sharks, Stephan Lewies has passed a fitness test and will take his place among the reserves as the Sharks travel to Johannesburg to take on the Lions this Friday.

Lewies was originally bracketed with Jean Droste when the team was announced yesterday, but his hamstring problem has now finally cleared up, leaving him free to play for the first time since the second-round clash against Griquas.

Sharks – 15 Curwin Bosch, 14 Rhyno Smith, 13 Lukhanyo Am, 12 André Esterhuizen, 11 Lwazi Mvovo, 10 Inny Radebe, 9 Michael Claassens, 8 Keegan Daniel (capt), 7 Jean-Luc du Preez, 6 Francois Kleinhans, 5 Ruan Botha, 4 Etienne Oosthuizen, 3 Lourens Adriaanse , 2 Chiliboy Ralepelle, 1 Thomas du Toit.
Subs: 16 Franco Marais, 17 John-Hubert Meyer, 18 Stephan Lewies, 19 Khaya Majola, 20 Stefan Ungerer, 21 Garth April, 22 Wandile Mjekvu.

  • That tight five fills me with much more confidence than the one that played WP and Cheetahs…
    Come on, men!

  • Out of curiosity has Lewies and Botha played together as a combination yet?

  • @Hulk (Comment 4) : don’t think so. One was usually out injured.

  • @JD (Comment 5) : I thought that was the case. I’d really like to see that combination and that gives you the option (should you want to experiment) of playing Oosthuizen at 8th man. That’ll make the pack nice and heavy, lots of lineout options and I’ve always liked playing locks at 8th man.

  • @Hulk (Comment 6) : although I’m with you with regards to having a big no 8 I also like a “specialist” to play there because it’s the link between scrum and backs and you must know what you do especially if the scrum is going back!
