Francois Steyn has been named at flyhalf in a rather drastically rejigged Cell C Sharks outfit named to face the Melbourne Rebels on Friday.

In all, Director of Rugby Jake White has made eight changes to his starting fifteen, although three of those are admittedly positional switches. The resulting combination is missing only S’bura Sithole to be considered the strongest available to the Sharks given the long-term injuries in the squad.

Lwazi Mvovo (fullback), Paul Jordaan (outside centre) and Charl McLeod (scrumhalf) are the only backs to keep their jerseys after the Highlanders defeat. Odwa Ndungane returns at right wing, prompting a shift leftwards for JP Pietersen (who takes over from the injured Sithole). Heimar Williams starts at inside centre, with Steyn pulling the strings from pivot.

Further changes up front see Ryan Kankowski start ahead of Keegan Daniel (number 8) and Jean Deysel come in for Willem Alberts at blindside flank. Marcell Coetzee retains his place, as do lock Stephan Lewies and props Jannie du Plessis and Beast Mtawarira. Bismarck du Plessis is fit again, coming in for Kyle Cooper at hooker, while Alberts takes over from Etienne Oosthuizen as starting lock.

Fresh faces on the bench this week are Cobus Reinach and Fred Zeilinga, both of whom are on the way back from injury. Tim Swiel and Tera Mtembu drop out of the squad this week, along with Stefan Ungerer and Franco Marais, neither of whom is on tour.
