Currie Cup Final: Golden Lions (42) v Sharks (16) F/T

The Sharks head to Coca-Cola Park today aiming to defend the Currie Cup title that they won last year.

The Lions, playing at home, seem to have the majority of the public support – particularly from neutrals keen to see them break their 12-year trophy drought. The Sharks, though, have a stronger quad on paper, although some inconsistent showings throughout the competition see most pundtis backing the Lions to squeak a close game, thanks mostly to a perceived greater sense of cohesion and team spirit.

Both sides are coached by Kiwis – John Plumtree and John Mitchell hailing from the same North Island backwater of Hawera – although the two men have both played down the role that their personal rivalry, as well as close friendship, might play in today’s encounter.

Kick-off at Coce Cola Park is at 17h30 today.

Golden Lions: 15 Jaco Taute, 14 Deon van Rensburg, 13 Doppies la Grange, 12 Alwyn Hollenbach, 11 Michael Killian, 10 Elton Jantjies, 9 Michael Bondesio, 8 Joshua Strauss (captain), 7 Michael Rhodes, 6 Derick Minnie, 5 Franco van der Merwe, 4 Wikus van Heerden, 3 Patric Cilliers, 2 Bandise Maku, 1 CJ van der Linde.
Replacements: 16 Martin Bezuidenhout, 17 Jacobie Adriaanse/JC Janse van Rensburg, 18 Warren Whiteley, 19 Cobus Grobbelaar, 20 Butch James, 21 Dylan Des Fountain, 22 James Kamana.

Sharks: 15 Patrick Lambie, 14 Odwa Ndungane, 13 Stefan Terblanché, 12 Marius Joubert, 11 JP Pietersen, 10 Frederic Michalak, 9 Conrad Hoffmann, 8 Ryan Kankowski, 7 Willem Alberts, 6 Keegan Daniel (captain), 5 Ross Skeate, 4 Jean Deysel, 3 Jannie du Plessis, 2 Bismarck du Plessis, 1 Tendai Mtawarira.
Replacements: 16 Craig Burden, 17 Eugene van Staden, 18 Alistair Hargreaves, 19 Marcell Coetzee, 20 Ross Cronjé, 21 Adrian Jacobs, 22 Lwazi Mvovo.
