Faf the Puma danger man

Scrumhalf Faf de Klerk, impressive enough for the Lions in Super Rugby that he received a Bok training squad call-up, has been released to the Pumas and will start for them against the Sharks on Friday evening.

De Klerk will be a full-time Lion next season, but along with a number of other players with Super Rugby experience, he will see out one last Currie Cup campaign with the Pumas before moving on to pastures greener. Prop Corne Fourie and lock Giant Mtayanda played Super Rugby for the Lions and Sharks respectively earlier this year and have both been included in MJ Mentz’s match 22 for this game.

Mtayanda, whose knowledge of the way the Sharks play will be invaluable, has been named as vice captain; also in the pack are two players who represented the Sharks at age group level, in prop Khwezi Mona and number 8 Lambert Groenewald. Groenwald, in fact, even has a lone Super Rugby cap for the Durban side, appearing as a replacement against the Blues in 2011. Plenty of attention will be paid to former Griqua opensider Marnus Schoeman, who has proved a real thorn in the Sharks’ flesh in years gone by.

Former Bulls centre Stefan Watermeyer captains the side from inside centre; he’ll be partnered by Trompie Pretorius, a man who scored many a try for the Sharks at age-group and Vodacom Cup level. Live-wire stepper (and Blitzbok) Rosco Speckman is at wing and the Sharks will need to keep a close eye on him too.

Pumas: 15 JW Bell, 14 Bernado Botha, 13 Jerome Pretorius, 12 Stefan Watermeyer (captain), 11 Rosco Spekman, 10 JC Roos, 9 Faf de Klerk, 8 Lambert Groenewald, 7 Uzair Cassiem, 6 Marnus Schoeman, 5 Lubabalo Mtyanda, 4 Rudi Mathee, 3 De-Jay Terblanché, 2 Frank Herne, 1 Khwezi Mona.
Replacements: 16 Francois du Toit, 17 Corne Fourie, 18 Marius Coetzer, 19 Jason-Colin Fraser, 20 Reynier van Rooyen, 21 Justin van Staden, 22 Hoffmann Maritz.
