Bok Trio Back for Sharks

The Sharks team to take on the Crusaders this weekend has been announced with the three expected changes to the starting line-up. 

Patrick Lambie comes back into the side in place of Frans Steyn and also takes over the captaincy from Jean Deysel. Cobus Reinach replaces Conrad Hoffman who takes his place back on the bench, with Stefan Ungerer dropping out. And Marcell Coetzee comes back into the starting line-up with Renaldo Bothma losing out in this instance.

A number of changes has also been made to the bench, with Matt Stevens making his first return to the side since that forgettable outing against the Stormers. Franco Marais also gets his first call to the match 23 this season, the 22 year old replaces Monde Hadebe on the bench and will get his first taste of Super Rugby if he gets a chance to take the field.

Gary Gold had high praise for this weekends opposition, “The Crusaders are a fantastic team, loaded with All Blacks. They have not won this competition as many times as they have by accident. They can never be taken lightly and we all know what a dangerous side they are when they hit their straps.

“It’s fantastic to play against a team of this quality; every team wants to be measured against the best. We are confident with our group of players and are excited about the match-up this weekend.”

On Tuesday, The Sharks launched their legacy campaign ‘Sharks Forever Fans’, which sees The Sharks team up with the Organ Donor Foundation of South Africa to raise awareness and promote the need for organ donation, which ultimately saves lives.
To launch this initiative, the Cell C Sharks will be wearing a limited edition jersey for their match against the Crusaders this Saturday. After the match these jerseys will be auctioned to raise funds for the project.
