New back row against Dragons

New back row against Dragons

Sean Everitt has made 4 changes in the pack (likely to rest some players) but only 2 in the misfiring Sharks back line. Le Roux Roets, James Venter, Jeandre Labushagne and Phepsi Buthelezi will all start in the forwards while Jaden Hendrikse and Jeremy Ward will start in 9 and 12 respectively.

This will be a must win match for the Sharks before they face the Lions (suddenly no easy beats), Leinster (top of the log) and Connacht at home before finishing away against Ulster (second on the log). The Sharks dominated Edinburgh in almost every aspect of the game except on the score board. Regardless of the poor weather Edinburgh took every chance they got while the Sharks just could not capitalize whenever they got into Edinburgh’s 22.
