Familiar threats out wide as Pumas named to face Sharks

Two players who are intimately familiar with the Sharks setup will face off against them in Nelspruit this weekend, as Steval Pumas coach Jimmy Stonehouse has named a rejigged backline for the clash.

Wingers Jerome “Trompie” Pretorius and Rosco Speckman both played their junior rugby in Durban – the former at outside centre – while another key player, number 8 Renaldo Bothma, also spent some time with the sharks as an age-group player before his rugby journey led to Nelspruit, via Johannesburg.

Speckmann and JW Bell come into the side at left wing and fullback this week, replacing Heinrich Steyl and Ruwellyn Isbell respectively. The balance of the starting team remains unchanged from the bonus-point win over Griquas at the weekend, while there is a new face on the bench in the form of Lions Super Rugby player Coenie van Wyk.

Steval Pumas: 15 JW Bell, 14 Jerome Pretorius, 13 JW Jonker, 12 Stefan Watermeyer, 11 Rosco Speckman, 10 Justin van Staden, 9 Dylon Frylinck, 8 Renaldo Bothma, 7 Uzair Cassiem, 6 Corne Steenkamp (captain), 5 Giant Mtyanda, 4 Frikkie Spies, 3 Vincent Koch, 2 Francois du Toit, 1 Corne Fourie.
Replacements: 16 Frankie Herne, 17 Dee-Jay Terblanche, 18 Marius Coetzer, 19 Jaco Bouwer, 20 Reynier van Rooyen, 21 JC Roos, 22 Coenie van Wyk.
