Sharks forced into changes

You’ve got to hand it to the muppets running the judicial process in SA Rugby… they’ve seen fit to finally get around to convening a disciplinary hearing after Fred Michalak was cited for a “late and dangerous tackle” in last year’s Currie Cup final!

Anyway, Fred has apparently been found guilty and the onerous punishment handed out means he’ll miss Friday’s warm-up against the Kings, although not the match against the Bulls a week later. Coupled with a leg infection that sees Jacques Botes pulled as a precaution, the Sharks will make some changes to their side to play the Kings.

Marcell Coetzee switches from blindside flank to open, with Tera Mtembu coming into the starting lineup in the number 7 jersey. Keegan Daniel remains on the bench, with coach Plumtree said to be happy with what his skipper has shown in the two previous warm up games – and keen to give Bismarck du Plessis a go at leading the troops.

Charl McLeod comes off the bench to take Michalak’s place at scrummie, with Cobus Reinach elevated to the match 24.

Sharks (Revised):

1. Dale Chadwick
2. Bismarck du Plessis (Captain)
3. Jannie du Plessis
4. Steven Sykes
5. Anton Bresler
6. Marcell Coetzee
