Second row woes for Sharks

The Cell C Sharks’ hopes of being able to call on a Super Rugby second-row pairing for Saturday’s Currie Cup opener against Griquas look slim to none, if a report on the SuperSport Website is to be believed.

Gavin Rich, who caught up with backline coach Sean Everitt earlier in the week, maintains that both Stephan Lewies and Etienne Oosthuizen are struggling with injuries sustained during the Super Rugby semi-final embarrassment in Christchurch and that neither is rated as more than 50% likely to feature in Kimberley.

The second row, which should be one of few areas of strength for the Currie Cup Sharks when all are fit, now looks decidedly thin, with veteran Marco Wentzel and greenhorn Wiehan Hay joining Boland import JC Astle as the available options.

The Sharks team will be announced on Thursday morning.
