Super Rugby 2012 – Sharks (27) vs Reds (22) F/T

The Sharks take on the defending champions the Reds in Durban this evening, after picking up their first victory of the season last weekend at home to the Lions. The Reds though, are yet to drop points this season, and will be full of confidence going into this game.

The Sharks have opted to start with Charl McLeod in place of Fred Michalak, and welcome back Jannie du Plessis to the front row who seems to be in rotation with Wiehahn Herbst for that tighthead jersey.

The Reds have back Scott Higginbotham from injury, and have opted to shift Mike Harris to inside centre, handing the pivot jersey to Ben Lucas while they await the return of Quade Cooper. Radike Samo gets a start at the back of the scrum after benching in the earlier games.

This should be a real cracking game, and I am looking forward to the Sharks picking up a home win before leaving for their tour.
