Sharks makes two changes due to injury
The Sharks has been forced to make two changes to their starting XV for their game against the MTN Golden Lions this Friday at Growthpoint Kings Park in Durban.
SP Marais gets his first start as he replaces Sizo Maseko (hamstring) with Helmar Williams also starting for the first time. He replaces the injured Tim Whitehead (Rib & Ankle) at centre.
Jacques Botes will once again captain the side as Keegan Daniel has not yet recovered from his injury.
The Sharks will look to get on the winning trail, but are well aware that the Lions are looking to do the same. In recent years the Sharks have been struggling against the Lions in Durban, but they are not letting this play ion their minds.
15. Odwa Ndungane, 14. SP Marais, 13. Louis Ludik, 12. Heimar Williams, 11. Lwazi Mvovo, 10. Butch James, 9. Charl McLeod, 8. Jacques Botes (captain), 7. Jean Deysel, 6. Brynard Stander, 5. Marco Wentzel, 4. Edwin Hewitt, 3. Wiehahn Herbst, 2. Kyle Cooper, 1. Dale Chadwick. Replacements: 16. Craig Burden, 17. Rayno Gerber, 18. Peet Marais, 19. Tera Mtembu, 20. Cobus Reinach, 21.
