Sharks and Boks face flyhalf crisis

Sharks and Boks face flyhalf crisis

With Damian Willemse out the Boks only has Frans Steyn for the 10 jersey (although Faf de Klerk and Willie le Roux are bandied as options). Similarly due to injuries to Curwin Bosch and Lionel Cronje the Sharks with only Boeta Chamberlain as recognized flyhalf and place kicker have called on Fred Zeilinga to assist.

The squad looks good in the prop, hooker, no 5 lock, open side and eight man department but will miss the experience and bulk of Le Roux Roets (no 4 lock), Henco Venter (blindside flank) and Jeandre Labuschagne (blindside) in the pack.
