Le Roux Roets makes his comeback against Pau

Le Roux Roets makes his comeback against Pau

Plum has shuffled his team around after the hiding the Sharks received in Loftus. Ox Nche will start along with Kerron van Vuuren. Corne Rahl replaces Emile van Heerden and may have to compete in the lineouts against the wily Sam Whitelock who joined Pau after the World Cup.

Grant Williams starts with Jaden Hendrikse dropping to the bench. Marnus Potgieter comes in for Aphiwe Diyanti. Le Roux Roets should add some grunt to the Sharks pack from the bench after his really long injury layoff. Promising youngster Ethan Hooker may feature later in the game.

Apart from the Whitelock brothers I do not recognize too many players in the Pau squad. However they are currently 4th on the T14 log and have beaten Toulouse, Bordeaux and Paris during November. Clearly they will not be pushovers and the Sharks will have to play with full intensity and improved skills and decision making to win this game.
