Sharks building up for Sunwolves clash


It is less than two weeks till the start of the Vodacome Super Rugby competition and the teams are starting to take shape.

The Cell C Sharks have another pre-season friendly against the Vodacom Bulls on Saturday and coach Robert Du Preez is going to give his players who will start against the Sunwolves in round 1 the time on the field in this one.

He did not pick his strongest side for the Super Hero Sunday clash against the Emirates Lions but will give them a chance this weekend against the Bulls.

We’ll use a squad of 30 players (against the Bulls), and we want to give the bulk of the game time to those players who will be travelling to play the Sunwolves. So it will be an opportunity for the likes of Andre (Esterhuizen), Rob (du Preez), Coenie (Oosthuizen), Ruan (Botha) and Beast (Mtawarira) to feature,” Du Preez said, as quoted by SA Rugbymag.

The Sharks have two more injury concerns with Thomas du Toit that pulled out just before the Lions game with and ankle injury and Makazola Mapimpi that injured his hamstring.
We do not have the final detail on these two injuries yet.

Saturday’s clash against the Bulls will be played in Ballito (14:00 kick-off).
