The Cell C Sharks XV have changed things up a fair bit for this weekend’s clash against the Tusker Simba XV from Kenya, whom they will play in Cape Town on Saturday.

Regular skipper Monde Hadebe takes a breather on the bench this week, meaning a start for Junioer Springbok hooker Franco Marais and a rare turn as captain for lock Edwin Hewitt. Loosehead prop Mox Mxoli is the only member of the starting tight five retained this week, with Nikolai Blignaut and Wiehahn Herbst also coming in for Marco Wentzel and Danie Mienie respectively.

Justin Downey starts at blindside flank for the first time, with Johan Meyer the new man at 8. Khaya Majola offers some rare continuity in the loose trio and is in the unmber 6 jersey as he has been all season.

The changes continue at the back, with Shannon Rick starting at scrumhalf ahead of Hanco Venter and Sean Robinson given a start at fullback with Jaco van Tonder off for the week. Sizo Maseko, Quentin Crocker, Andre Esterhuizen and Tonderai Chavhanga comprise an unchanged three-quarter line, while Tim Swiel also continues at flyhalf.
