Boks strengthen team for Ospreys

Boks strengthen team for Ospreys

Neil Powell has drafted a number of Boks to assist the struggling Sharks as well as starting Curwin Bosch at 10 after months of layoff. Vincent Tshituka at 4 lock and Sikhumbuzo Noshe at 6 flank are interesting selections. Ben Tapuai will add some experience and direction to the back line.

Powell apparently had the final say in selections since he started as DOR. This will be the first for which he would be directly responsible. Also his first game coaching a 15’s team at this level.

Hopefully the players will put Sunday’s disaster behind them and just go out and focus on the basics of rugby. A forecast for 35% change of rain from 20:00 on Friday – here’s hoping the rain can stay away for another hour or so.
