Coach Sean Everitt has brought back some more big guns for the match against the Bulls on Friday evening. Siya Kolisi makes his first start for the Sharks in the open side position. Ox Nche, Ruben van Heerden, Henco Venter and Sbu Nkosi all make their first appearance in the Preparation Series.

Boeta Chaimberlain gets another start at 10 while Anthony Volmink has been given the fullback jersey.

The Sharks have managed over these 4 preparation games to give some game time to quite an extended squad and now has decent depth in most positions (bar tight head IMO). It will be interesting to see which squad the coach picks once the Sharks compete in the Rainbow series.

2. Fez Mbatha

3. Thomas du Toit

4. Ruben van Heerden

5. Emile van Heerden

8. Sikhumbuzo Notshe

9. Jaden Hendrikse

10. Boeta Chamberlain

11. Yaw Penxe

12. Marius Louw

13. Lukhanyo Am (Captain)

  • No cover for flyhalf, which though not the end of the world does bemuse me. I’m not sold on Hendrickse yet, but I understand the point that Williams has got plenty of game time in the preparation matches, and Nohamba is more of a known quantity. Boeta Chamberlain? Idunno, he’s rusty which is why he’s getting a second start. The rest of the backline looks zippy and probably fit as a butcher’s dog after their conditioning. John-Hubert Meyer, I like the guy, I just wish he filled me with more confidence. Pretty decent bench overall.

  • Too much to hope for 80 minutes of rugby instead of 40?

  • Siya scores his first try for the Sharks. Some great hands from the forwards shifts the ball with Nkosi featuring twice. 19-5

  • Field is a swimming pool but both teams are giving the ball air. Great hands from the Sharks front row

  • First error at the lineout – first phase apart of the kickoffs have been pretty perfect

  • Sharks losing shape at the lineout – losing a few in a row now

  • Lineout still a problem after really starting well

  • Hendrickse can be pretty brainless at times. What is the point of a quick tap penalty and then kicking the ball straight to a Bulls player

  • And a brilliant run from Boeta – but another cockup makes it come to nought

  • And Jonker scores after the Sharks gets a tight head. First score since 25 minutes in the first half

  • Sharks needed to put a fairly inexperienced Bulls team away and pretty much did so in 25 minutes in challenging conditions.

    The lineout problems that started around the 30 minute mark broke the momentum
