Swiel in the driving seat at Loftus

Cell C Sharks flyhalf Tim Swiel will return to the scene of his maiden Super Rugby cap when he wears the number 10 jersey for the under 21 side this week. Moving from fullback to pivot, the former Bishops boy will form an all-new halfback pairing with Junior Sprinbok Hanco Venter this week.

Last week’s captain and scrumhalf Stefan Ungerer was called up at late notice to join the Sharks in Cape Town – and ended up with a Super Rugby try for his efforts – but Jake White has seemingly taken no chances this time around and has kept the young man in Durban, along with star centre Andre Esterhuizen, lest either are needed by the Super Rugby side at the eleventh hour.

Powerful Zimbabwean Gareth Meikle comes in at 12 to replace Esterhuizen, with Namibian speedster Alcino Izaacs shifting to fullback and Sipho Mkhize moving up from the bench to start at wing.

Hilton’s Chris de Beer – who captained the Sharks at both under 18 and under 19 level as a hooker – will reprise that role this week, albeit from his new position of loosehead prop. He replaces Matt Jones in the starting line-up this week, with Buzwe Mpotulo, a schoolboy centre from the Border region now operating at flank, replacing Ray Williams in the number 6 jersey as one of two other change to the starting pack. Johan Meyer comes in for Sias Koen on the blindside.

New faces on the bench this week are Roan Dalzell, Cameron Wright, Brendon Cope and Legend Marwana.
