In an occurrence that is as amazing as it is impressive, the Sharks will field a completely “home grown” starting forward pack against the Cheetahs tomorrow, with every member of that eight a player to have come up through the Sharks Academy and age-group ranks. What’s more, Dale Chadwick is the only member of that unit not to have represented South Africa at either under 20 or senior level.

Here are some notable milestones:

- Marcell Coetzee earns his 20th cap for the Sharks in the Currie Cup
- Tera Mtembu earns his 10th cap for the Sharks in the Currie Cup

Here are some other facts and figures about the squad:

- Average age (starting forwards) : 23.5 years (that’s 2 years less than last week)
- Average age (starting backs) : 25.7 years
- Average age (entire 22) : 24.9 years
- Oldest player: Butch James (34)
- Youngest player: Fred Zeilinga (20)

- Average weight (starting forwards) : 109kg
- Average weight (starting backs) : 90.3kg
- Heaviest player: Rayno Gerber (120kg)
- Lightest player: Fred Zeilinga (82kg)

- Average height (starting forwards) : 1.88m
- Average height (starting backs) : 1.82m
- Tallest player: Pieter-Steph du Toit (2.00m)
- Shortest player: Fred Zeilinga/Cobus Reinach (1.75m)

- Total Currie Cup caps (starting team): 478
- Average Currie Cup caps (starting team): 31.9
- Total Currie Cup caps (entire 22): 646
- Average Currie Cup caps (entire 22): 29.4
