Mchunu and Sadie starts against the Stormers

The Sharks will have none of their Boks (Ox Nche was particularly industrious in Scotland) available for the home game against the Stormers. That means Ntuthuko Mchunu and Carl├╝ Sadie will start in the front row with Dian Bleuler and Hanro Jacobs on the bench. Likewise Cam Wright (who had a very good game except for the decision to box kick with 25 seconds left on the clock) will start at 9 with Bradley Davids on the bench.

Rohan Janse van Rensburg comes back into the side with Ben Tapuai shifting to 13.

The Sharks is sitting at 8th position (33 points) on the log while having two games in hand vs. Edinburgh (31), Connacht (30), Cardiff (29) and Ospreys (29).

Wins in the next two games against the Stormers and the Lions will most likely be required to end in the top 4. After the Lions the Sharks (ex Boks) will face a touch match against Ulster at home.

Hopefully the Sharks can recover in time after the bruising match against Edinburgh (especially the extended period of heroic defense in the extra 8.5 minutes after full time). The Stormers will definitely come out smarting from the big loss against Ulster.
