New Joubert starts Sharks journey


Written by Rob Otto (robdylan)

When the Sharks (then known as Natal) enjoyed their first heyday, back in the mid-90s, many of their most memorable victories (including that famous win against Transvaal in the 1996 Currie Cup final) were spearheaded by the phenomenal Rolls Royce of fullbacks, one Andre Joubert.

While SA Schools and Glenwood fullback Morne Joubert is certainly of the right vintage to be descended from namesake Andre, to my knowledge their is no actual relationship between the two. All the same, the prospect of this talented young player fulfilling his undoubted potential for the Sharks in years to come and providing many more special “Jouba” memories for fans is one to relish. Having excelled for his school first team for three years, and setting the recent Under 18 Craven Week alight in KZN colours, Joubert is poised to make his under 19 debut this weekend, as the third schoolboy member of James Fleming’s side to face the Golden Lions.

Fleming has made a number of changes to the side that faded against the Cheetahs last weekend. Perhaps foremost amongst these is the return of Innocent Radebe at flyhalf, with Josh Bragman returning to the bench. Sparks Ngcobo moves up from the bench to start at right wing, with Marcel Coetzee moving over to the left at the expense of Reteif Marais. In the final backline change, Marius Louw returns from injury to replace Brad Ellse at outside centre.

The pack has been kept more-or-less intact this week, with hooker Jordan Meaker returning from injury to replace Wesley White in the only change.

Joubert is one of two new faces on the bench this week, alongside scrumhalf replacement Reece McHardy.

Sharks Under 19s: 15. Chris Lines, 14. Sphamandla Ngcobo, 13. Marius Louw, 12. Merlyn Pieterse, 11. Marcel Coetzee, 10. Innocent Radebe, 9. Rowan Gouws, 8. Daniel du Preez, 7. Jean-Luc du Preez, 6. Andre de la Rey, 5. Hyron Andrews, 4. Johan du Toit, 3. Ruan Kramer (Captain) , 2.Jordan Meaker, 1. Mzamo Majola
Replacements: 16. Andrew du Plessis, 17. Cameron Holenstein, 18. Mthunzi Moloi, 19. Wian Vosloo, 20. Ayron Schramm, 21. Reece McHardy, 22. Joshua Bragman, 23. Morne Joubert
