Sharks change one for Bay clash

Gary Gold has largely kept faith in his starting fifteen for Saturday’s must-win Currie Cup clash against the Kings in PE.

Former Bulls age-group prop Gerhard Engelbrecht has been promoted to the starting lineup, in a direct swap with Thomas du Toit. With the Baby Bok struggling to adapt to his new role at tighthead, the big former Affie will make his first start in the number 3 jersey at Currie Cup level. The remainder of the pack has been retained for this clash after an encouraging performance against thee Lions that saw a marked improvement in intensity for much of the contest.

Gold has likewise opted for backline continuity, with Michael Claassens again prefered to Stefan Ungerer at scrumhalf and Andre Esterhuizen and Paul Jordaan operating in midfield.

Further changes on the bench see Kyle Cooper and JC Astle come in for their first appearances of the season, replacing Franco Marais and Dave McDuling respectively. SP Marais is also out, having suffered a serious ankle injury at training. His place on the bench goes to uncapped Garth April.

Sharks: 15 Joe Pietersen, 14 Odwa Ndungane, 13 Paul Jordaan , 12 Andre Esterhuizen, 11 Sibusiso Sithole, 10 Lionel Cronje, 9 Michael Claassens, 8 Philip van der Walt, 7 Daniel du Preez, 6 Francois Kleinhans, 5 Marco Wentzel (captain), 4 Etienne Oosthuizen, 3 Gerhard Engelbrecht, 2 Monde Hadebe, 1 Dale Chadwick.
Replacements: 16 Kyle Cooper, 17 Thomas du Toit, 18 JC Astle, 19 Jean-Luc du Preez, 20 Stefan Ungerer, 21 Wandile Mjekevu, 22 Garth April.
