Time to play on the Stoop

Time to play on the Stoop

The Hollywoodbets Sharks take on the Ospreys on Friday night at the Twickenham Stoop. Kicks off is at 21h35 (SA Time) and this will also be a historic game as it will be the first ever URC game to take place in England.

Hollywoodbets Sharks head coach John Plumtree has made five changes (one positional shift) to last week’s side.

In the forwards Dylan Richardson (hooker), Coenie Oosthuizen (tighthead) and Sikhumbuzo Notshe (eighthman) start with Kerron van Vuuren and Hanro Jacobs moving to the bench. Phepsi Buthelezi shifts to the flank to replace the injured Vincent Tshituka.

The backline sees Aphiwe Dyantyi starting on the wing in place of Marnus Potgieter who is not included in the match day 23.

As it is no secret that Plumtree wants to play a more attacking brand of rugby, this will be the perfect game to do so after two difficult games against Irish opposition. Looking especially at the forwards selected for this game I expect an open running game from the Sharks.

Go Sharks!!!!!!!!!!!!!
