The Cell C Sharks welcome back Bismarck du Plessis to the team to host the Lions at Growthpoint KINGS PARK in one of a handful of changes to last week’s side.

Director of Rugby, Gary Gold, explaining the rationale in making new selections, explains: “Due to injuries, we have had to necessitate a few changes to the team.

“Apart from those injury-enforced changes, we have tried to keep the team as consistent as possible, so that players have another opportunity to get the wrongs of the past weekend right.”

They will have to make do without the likes of wing S’bura Sithole, Mouritz Botha and Beast Mtawarira, but that opens the door of opportunity to Odwa Ndungane, debutant lock Lubabalo “Giant” Mtyanda (pictured) and Dale Chadwick.

Two very exciting young talents in Thomas du Toit and Andre Esterhuizen come onto the bench for this week’s match.
