Reshuffled DHL Western Province backline for Sharks clash

DHL Western Province will be without captain Nizaam Carr when the face the Cell C Sharks in Durban on Saturday, scrumhalf Nic Groom will captain the side in his absence.

Carr injured his hamstring in the first half of his sides class against Griquas last week and while his recovery has gone well it was decided that it was not worth this risk to push him as regular captin Juan de Jongh is already out with a long term injury.

Jaco Taute will also be watching the game on the telly ,the burly centre is suffering with sore groin . His injury presents Huw Jones with an opportunity to start in the 12 jersery, Jones is viewed as a fantastic prospect and this was confirmed by John Dobson “Huw’s selection is an exciting one. I’ve always rated him as an attacking prospect and we feel the time is right to give him a go at inside centre”

“Our 10-12-13 axis is looking very different now from how we started the season, which is a challenge in itself, but I have every confidence in Kurt (Coleman), Huw and Johnny (Kotze) to make things happen for us in Durban.”

The reshuffled backline will have to settle quickly and will be hoping that their pack fires early, WP were strong in the scrums against Griquas but were penalised when trying to assert their dominance , Dobson admitted that he eventually had to give the instruction to not shove or compete on opposition ball.
