Sharks XV named for Boland

Sharks XV coach Sean Everitt has, as predicted, named a weakened side to face Boland on Saturday, after a huge number of young stars have been withdrawn due to Baby Bok commitments.

With up to 10 players missing, the pack has a seriously re-jigged look, with a number of club players asked to take the step up. Tighthead prop Frans Hanekom is no stranger to this level of rugby, though, having represented the XV on a few occasions last year. His back up is prop Kurt Schonert, the older brother of Nick, who is on tour with the Sharks Super Rugby squad. Kurt also played a game or two for the Sharks at age-group level. Monde Hadebe starts at hooker with Dean Muir coming in as understudy.

Amongst the locks, former Glenwood lad Brendon Groenewald has been pressed into service as a makeshift number 4, with Stephan Lewies coming onto the bench. Franna Kleinhans is back at open side flank after serving out his suspension, meaning a demotion to the bench for Chris Cloete. Tera Mtembu will captain the side again.

Amongst the backs, the only change to the run-on side sees Gavin Hauptfleisch start at flyhalf in place of Fred Zeilinga. It will be Hauptfleisch’s first start for the Sharks in any competition, after injury sidelined him for all of last year’s under 19 campaign.
