Sharks to keep it steady for now

Speaking to the official website, Cell C Sharks Director of Rugby Jake White has revealed that he’s unlikely to tinker much with his winning formula during the upcoming stretch of matches.

White has been in the enviable position of being able to name an unchanged match 23 for the Sharks’ opening two fixture, both of which resulted in comfortable wins. With no injuries coming from those fixtures and an early bye, the smart money would be on the Sharks sticking with the exact same selection for this weekend’s match against the Lions, as well as the three games that follow ahead of the second bye round.

“Rotation will obviously take place because we’re going to have to give some guys opportunities, to keep fresh as well as keeping the guys in the system fresh,” White told Sharksrugby editor Michael Marnewick.

“But the way our draw is, with two byes in six weeks, mass rotation wouldn’t take place during that six week period. There might be guys we give starts to and change it up a bit during that block, but generally I think in the way the draw is, we have two weeks, then a bye, then four weeks, then a bye, then seven weeks on the trot. Most of the rotation and opportunities will come in that seven week block when we really need to start freshening up players.”

In other words, White’s going to be looking to this group to get through the upcoming games against the Lions, Reds, Bulls and Waratahs, before taking further stock after the second bye in round eight.
