Wentzel starts for Sharks

Gary Gold, in naming his Sharks team to face the Chiefs at Kings Park on Saturday, has made just one injury-enforced change to the starting ine-up that recorded a bonus-point win over the Cheetahs. Marco Wentzel moves from the bench to replace the unfortunate Pieter-Steph du Toit in the second row.

Wentzel is, of course, a capped Springbok too, but one of slightly earlier vintage than the man he replaces. Interestingly, both players boast just two test caps – du Toit’s were earned on the 2013 end of season European tour, while Wentzel’s came under similar circumstance way back in 2002. The pack this week again contains only players with test rugby experience, with six Boks, an Englishman and a Namibian in the mix.

Giant Mtayanda comes into the match 23 this week, occupying the replacement lock spot, with Waylon Murray replacing Jack Wilson the the only other change to the bench.

Sharks: 15 SP Marais, 14 Odwa Ndungane, 13 JP Pietersen, 12 Frans Steyn, 11 Lwazi Mvovo, 10 Patrick Lambie, 9 Cobus Reinach, 8 Ryan Kankowski, 7 Renaldo Bothma, 6 Marcell Coetzee, 5 Marco Wentzel, 4 Mouritz Botha, 3 Jannie du Plessis, 2 Bismarck du Plessis (capt), 1 Tendai Mtawarira.
Subs: 16 Kyle Cooper, 17 Dale Chadwick, 18 Lourens Adriaanse, 19 Giant Mtayanda, 20 Daniel du Preez, 21 Conrad Hoffmann, 22 Andre Esterhuizen, 23 Waylon Murray
