The Sharks have been hit by a number of high profile injuries even before what’s left of the 2020 rugby season kicks off.¬†Aphelele Fassi picked up a shoulder injury during training last week and will be out of action for at least 3 months after undergoing surgery. Really sad news as many of us were really looking forward to again seeing Fassi ghosting through defenses.

Kerron van Vuuren suffered a pectoral tear and should be back in action towards the end of October. With injuries to Sbu Nkosi (sternum) and Madosh Tambwe (hamstring) plus Makazole Mapimpi on a short term Japanese contract, the Sharks will have to field a make shift back three for Saturday’s game against the Bulls. Bosch will likely have to move to 15 with new signing Libbok taking up the 10 jersey.



  • Libbok will play at 15 I’m sure.

  • Yup, pretty sure Libbok will play 15. Maybe move Kok to the wing.

  • I’ve just see the team for this weekend. It appears we have a lot more players injured. And one or two that I gather have fallen out of favour.
