Manie Libbok has been paired with Cobus Reinach in Sunday’s quarter final. They have also gone with a 5-3 split on the bench with Faf de Klerk, Handre Pollard and Willie le Roux on the bench.
Duane Vermelen has been selected at 8 and together with Siya Kolisi and PSDT will have to keep a very good and physical French back row in check.
Siya Kolisi, Jaden Hendrikse and Ox Nche (from the bench) will play their first game for the Boks in 2023 in the warmup against Wales. RG Snyman will be running the line out partnered by the hard working Jean Kleyn. Siya will be joined by PSDT and Jasper Wiese in the back row.
The Cell C Sharks go into tomorrow’s game just six log points behind the second placed Airlink Pumas. Another victory will see them with a real chance of competing for a top two finish.
The Cell C Sharks team for the final group game (and almost certainly the last home game) of the Vodacom United Rugby Championship on Saturday evening was announced today.
The Sharks today announced that by mutual consent the CellC Sharks head coach, Sean Everitt has stepped down from his role with immediate effect.
Neil Powell will oversee the rest of the URC and first foray into the Heiniken Cup. He will be assisted by the current senior coaching structure.
I do feel for Sean as he’s been with the Sharks since 2008 and did coach the Sharks U19’s to the title in 2018. That said unfortunately the recent form and results did not leave Sharks management with a lot of choices as something had to change and it’s usually the head coach that must fall on his sword.
I personally wish Sean all the best for his future!
Due to the Omicron variant disrupting the URC schedule the SA teams will play each other this weekend.
Sean Everitt has selected a strong team featuring a number of Springboks, but I am getting the midfield which I have always been waiting for to see – Lukhanyo Am in the 12 jersey and Jeremy Ward in 13.
Glad you have found your way back to Sharks World.
Unfortunately Rob will no longer be able to host the site – so I have taken it on myself to continue the site.
We are not able to transfer the old site – so I am starting from scratch. Please bear with me.
