Lambie back at 10 for Sharks

Bismarck du Plessis is the big injury casualty for the Sharks this week, but there’s good news for the fans as Pat Lambie, Tim Whitehead and Marcell Coetzee have all been named to start.

Lambie, who has missed the last two games with a wisdom tooth injury, will play at pivot against the Blues on Friday morning, with Whitehead and Coetzee – who were both under injury clouds earlier in the week, named at 12 and 6 respectively. Lambie’s return sees Fred Michalak dropped to the bench, where he replaces Marius Joubert in the number 22 jersey.

Du Plessis has returned home, meaning a second start at hooker for Craig Burden, while Kyle Cooper will make his first appearance of the season off the bench. In the only changes to the pack that started against the Hurricanes, Jean Deysel has been named to start at blind side flank in place of Willem Alberts, who’ll be part of a five-man forward bench, while Anton Bresler switches places with Jandre Marais.

Alberts, according to some statistics, has missed more tackles so far this season than any other player and will want to rediscover the deadly tackling technique that earned him the “Bone Collector” moniker bestowed by fans.
