Eben’s first start for the Sharks

Eben’s first start for the Sharks

Sean Everett has shored up the Sharks side with his available Boks including Eben Etzebeth that will make his debut in a Sharks jersey. New recruit Vincent Tshituka will feature in the number 7 jersey.

Midfield has been reshuffled with red-carded Rohan JvR replaced by Marnus Potgieter. Jaden Hendrikse starts in place of the injured Grant Williams and Anthony Volminck comes in for Thaakir Abrahams.

The Sharks at times showed great attacking skills against Leinster but were really poor defensively (and also exiting after receiving a kick off). This was very evident with poor tackling out wide, but the Sharks also allowed Leinster to get on the front foot across the field too often. Defense has reportedly been the focus in training this week.
