Sharks team to face Lions

Sharks team to face Lions

In a bit of a change to what was the recent norm, the Cell C Sharks team to face the Emirates Lions in Johannesburg was announced on a Thursday. The team has been bolstered by the return of a number of players.

In what is a must win game for the Sharks, there are five changes to the starting team that played against the Stormers as well as a 6-2 split on the bench.

In the forwards Dan Jooste & Reniel Hugo replaces Kerron van Vuuren & Hyron Andrews. In the backline, Grant Williams & Francois Venter replace Cameron Wright & Ben Tapuai (both playing from the bench as the only backline replacement). The final change to the starting team sees Werner Kok returning from injury to replace Marnus Potgieter.

Changes to the bench see Fez Mbata, Vincent Tshituka & Dylan Richardson return to action.

Saturday’s clash in Johannesburg kicks off at 15h00.
