Ox back for Edinburgh

Ox back for Edinburgh

Aphelele Fassi is still out injured but the Sharks will welcome back Ox Nche. Anthony Volmink takes over the fullback position after not having featured in any Sharks team for weeks.

Having doing well to manage bonus points against below strength Benetton and Scarlets teams (due to Six Nations call-ups) and the bottom dwelling Zebre team, the Sharks will face a full strength Edinburgh team featuring the likes of Hamish Watson.

Hopefully the players can lift their game and also put Edinburgh away. Over the past couple of games the periods of error-ridden play far exceeded the periods of clinical play (during which the Sharks did manage to put away the opposition). It is vital to start improving om accuracy before meeting the Irish front runners Leinster and Ulster later in the season.

The Sharks could also do with players like Sbu Nkosi (who is taking an awfully long time to get over a tummy bug?) and hard working Ruben van Heerden.
