Two fetchers for Zebre

Two fetchers for Zebre

Sean Everitt has selected both James Venter and Dylan Richardson in the starting pack. This will make for a pretty mobile loose trio, but the Sharks may struggle in the tight exchanges especially with Le Roux Roets not on tour. Another unexpected choice is the selection of Ben Tapuai at 12 and Rohan Janse van Rensburg at 13 and not the other way around. Thaakir Abrahams gets the nod at 14 while Marnus Potgieter covers from the bench.

This should be the Sharks easiest game on this tour given that Zebre ended at the bottom of the log in 2021. However last week Leinster had to survive a second half fight back from Zebre in Parma to squeak in a 33-29 victory.

The South African teams generally start slow – so we should probably expect a fairly high error rate (as in the Bulls-Lions game).
