No Lambie for rejigged Sharks

Tim Swiel will start at flyhalf for the Cell C Sharks when they face the Cheetahs in Bloemfontein this weekend. It was widely reported that Pat Lambie may have recovered from a bicep injury in time to be considered for this match, but it appears the Bok pivot will require at least an additional week out.

Jake White has made a few interesting selections, chief amongst these the decision to finally give his reserve front row a start. Dale Chadwick’s elevation was expected, given Beast Mtawarira’s neck problem, but Kyle Cooper and Lourens Adriaanse will also take the field from the opening whistle this week, with Bok brothers Bismark and Jannie du Plessis playing off the bench. They are joined by exciting 19-year-old loose head Thomas du Toit, who was a stand out player at the recent IRB Junior World Championship.

Anton Bresler returns to the team and starts alongside Stephan Lewies in the second row, with Jean Deysel also back in action, captaining the side from blind side flank. Willem Alberts and Tera Mtembu provide utility forward cover off the bench.

Swiel’s selection at flyhalf means Frans Steyn can move back to his favoured position of inside center, where he’ll operate alongside S’bura Sithole. Cobus Reinach is at scrumhalf, while JP Pietersen, Lwazi Mvovo and SP Marais complete the starting backline. Fit-again wingers Odwa Ndungane and Tonderai Chavanga have both been picked on the bench, along with Charl McLeod.

In fact, du Toit and Mtembu thus become the only two players on the bench not capped at test level.
