Sharks under 21 coach Michael Horak appears to have lost the services of his two Super Rugby players, Thomas du Toit and Daniel du Preez ahead of this weekend’s game against the Free State Cheetahs.

With both players called up to the Sharks Currie Cup squad, Horak has had to reshuffle somewhat – he has however been boosted by the return of three other top players from injury.

Props Barend Potgieter and Ruan Kramer move into the starting lineup, replacing Mzamo Majola and Du Toit respectively. while fit-again Jean-Luc du Preez replaces twin brother Daniel at flank in the only other change to the pack that started at Loftus. A change at halfback sees Lotter Pretorius start ahead of Rowan Gouws, with Varsity Shield start Inny-Christian Radebe fit to start at flyhalf in place of Riaan O’Neill. Marius Louw, another who excelled for the Impi this year, was a late inclusion on the bench last week. He starts at 12 this week and also takes over the captaincy, with Sandile Kubeka moving to outside centre and Nkululeko Marwana shifting to left wing in place of Marcel Coetzee. Neil Maritz replaces Nkululeko Mcuma at right wing in the final change, meaning fullback Kelvin Elder is the only back who starts in the same jersey he wore in Pretoria last week.

On the bench, Mthunzi Moloi comes in as tighthead cover, with Gouws, O’Neill and Coetzee all included as backline substitutes. With only Wian Vosloo to cover lock and loose forward, there is no room for Retief Marais.

Sharks under 21:
15 Kelvin Elder, 14 Neil Maritz, 13 Sandile Kubeka, 12 Marius Louw (capt), 11 Nkululeko Marwana, 10 Inny-Christian Radebe, 9 Lotter Pretorius, 8 Ayron Schramm, 7 Jean-Luc du Preez, 6 Graham Geldenhuys, 5 Hyron Andrews, 4 Johan du Toit, 3 Ruan Kramer, 2 Andrew du Plessis, 1 Barend Potgieter.
Replacements: 16 Kerron van Vuuren, 17 Mzamo Majola, 18 Mthunzi Moloi, 19 Wian Vosloo, 20 Rowan Gouws, 21 Riaan O’Neill, 22 Marcel Coetzee

Paul Anthony’s under 19 side also sees changes.

Winger Chris Lines and scrumhalf Jaywinn Juries both move to the bench this week, with Brent Christoffels and Willem Badenhorst promoted after substitute roles at Loftus. Number 8 Rowan Coetzer moves to 5 lock, with captain Michael Meyer shifting from open side to the back of the scrum. Bernardus Haring moves from 7 to 6, with Namibian Cameron McNab moving up from the bench to start on the blind side.

Lock Christiaan van der Merwe drops to the bench, where Eric Kankowski replaces reserve hooker Ulric Sellar in the only other change to the match 23.

Sharks under 19:
15 Morne Joubert, 14 S’busiso Nkosi, 13 Tristan Blewett, 12 Wayno Visagie, 11 Brent Christoffels, 10 Tristan Tedder, 9 Willem Badenhorst, 8 Mike Meyer (capt), 7 Cameron MacNab, 6 Bernardus Haring, 5 Rowan Coetzer, 4 Rikus Zwart, 3 Kabelo Motloung, 2 Bradley Roberts, 1 Wentzel Vorster.
Subs: 16 Eric Kankowski, 17 Marq-Anthony Lombard, 18 Johnathan Vorster, 19 Ruan Smook, 20 Christie van der Merwe, 21 Jaywinn Juries, 22 Stephan Nel, 23 Chris Lines
