Fortunately Sbu Nkosi is available to fill the 14 jumper after being taken off the field on a stretcher last Saturday. Rob du Preez has stuck with the exact same squad that did duty against the Blues.

With a 17:00 kickoff the heat should be less of a factor.

Sharks – 15 Aphelele Fassi, 14 Sbu Nkosi, 13 Lukhanyo Am, 12 André Esterhuizen, 11 Makazole Mapimpi, 10 Rob du Preez, 9 Louis Schreuder (c), 8 Dan du Preez, 7 Tyler Paul, 6 Jacques Vermeulen, 5 Ruan Botha, 4 Hyron Andrews, 3 Coenie Oosthuizen, 2 Akker van Merwe, Tendai Mtawarira.
Subs: 16 Kerron van Vuuren, 17 Juan Schoeman, 18 Thomas du Toit, 19 Gideon Koegelenberg, 20 Phendulani Buthelezi, 21 Cameron Wright, 22 Jeremy Ward, 23 Curwin Bosch.

  • Once again I like the look of this team. I really believe we can give the Stormers a proper hiding if we play to our potential. Let’s go boys!!!!!!

  • One thing I don’t like is Sub being taken off the field last week on a stretcher for what must have been a severe head knock, obviously nothing else or he would have walked offer if it was any other injury too severe to walk, he wouldn’t be playing this week,
    Surely he shouldn’t be playing for a few weeks, have these guys not learnt anything from Pat Lambie

  • @The hound (Comment 4) : think the stretcher was mostly precautionary as the injury was to his neck. I saw photos of him walking around with a neck brace after the game. Must believe Sharks will not take chances with any player.

  • @The hound (Comment 4) : It wasn’t his head it was his neck. He probably felt a some snap, crackle, pop and a little discomfort when he ran into Ruan, and they decided to go with safety first, as they should with anything in that area.

  • I like the side but if it rains as predicted I would play Fassi on the wing for Mapimpi and bring Bosch in at 15

  • Can’t believe nobody commented on the Sunwolves fantastic away victory against the Chiefs!!! I know you can’t compare games but for me it gives a whole other perspective on the Sharks victory against them!!!
