Fassi at fullback for Sharks


Cell C Sharks coach Robert Du Preez is looking for a perfect start against the Sunwolves this weekend and picked a strong match-day squad.

He went as most coaches with experience players with a little bit of youth.

With Bosch unavailable Robert du Preez will take the 10 jumper.

Schreuder will lead the team at nine with Aphelele Fassi the only debutant in the starting team.

He will fill the fullback position which brings an exciting option to the Sharks backline.

All the youngsters are very excited. They bring a lot of energy, they put a lot of pressure on the guys who have been around a while, so that competition is very healthy,” said du Preez.

I am sure every one of those players, when given the opportunity, will make the step up.”

“For us, it’s about going there to win.”
