Big ask for under 21s

Deon Kayser’s Sharks under 21 side faces a tough challenge this weekend, as they travel to Bloemfontein hoping to overturn a 27-point deficit from the lat time they played the Cheetahs.

It’s been an uphill struggle for the side this year, battling with a squad that’s not quite as deep or strong as in years gone by, particularly at forward. They’ve picked up bonus-point wins in their last two outings, though and will look for a third successive victory to put themselves in with a good chance of making the top four.

Complicating matters for the coaches this week is the loss of Andre Esterhuizen – clearly the star player in the group – to the senior side. Neil Maritz moves from wing to inside centre, where he will partner the ever improving Kulu “Legend” Marwana, with Tyler Fisher earning a start at right wing. Fisher has had a tough time with injury this season and must, I’m sure, be desperate for a bit of time out on the field to get back into his stride. Sipho Mkhize rotates with Alrin Eksteen at left wing in the other change to the backline.

Sias Koen and Jean Pretorius swap sides in a loose trio that is unchanged personnel-wise, while Dave Fisher start at five lock in place of Ferdie Horn. Bart le Roux comes in for Marne Coetzee at tighthead in the final change up-front, with Barend Potgieter continuing at loose head prop, a positional switch which appears to be working out well for the player.

Cullen Collopy, Brandon Landsberg, Johan Wagenaar and former SA Schools centre Sandile Khubeka are the new faces on the bench this week.

Sharks Under 21s: 15. Alcino Izaacs, 14. Tyler Fisher, 13. Nkululeko Marwana , 12. Neil Maritz, 11. Sipho Mkize, 10. Brendan Cope, 9. Stefan Ungerer (capt) , 8. Louis Hazelhurst, 7. Sias Koen, 6. Jean Pretorius, 5. David “Danger” Fisher, 4. Buzwe Mpotulo, 3. Bart le Roux, 2. Roan Dalzell , 1. Barend Potgieter
Replacements: 16. Cullen Collopy, 17. Brandon Landsberg, 18. Liam O’Connell, 19. Johan Wagenaar, 20. Hanco Venter, 21. Sandile Kubeka, 22. Alrin Eksteen
