For almost the first time this season, the Sharks are in the fortunate position of being able to name a virtually unchanged starting team for this weekend’s match against the Blue Bulls.

The ironic highlight of last week’s match in Bloemfontein was that, for the first time in ages, we didn’t actually suffer an injury at lock, meaning that, barring anything unforeseen happening, there is no injury-related reason to make any changes to the pack whatsoever. The Sharks performed well in the set pieces against the Cheetahs and should the coaches opt to retain the same starting 8, we could finally start to see the benefit of continuity, with line-outs and scrums the key areas where synergy and familiarity pay dividends.

Odwa Ndungane looks unlikely to play this week, but with Lwazi Mvovo available, the most sensible thing to do would be to make a straight swap at wing. Key for me this week is to retain the attacking axis at 9-10-12-13 that showed some promise and willingness to attack against the Cheetahs, even if their execution was often flawed.

Let’s hope sanity prevails this week.
