Notes
Quotes from Head Coach, Brad Macleod-Henderson.

“The Lions have a strong scrum, they’ve enjoyed great continuity from Super Rugby and they like to play an exciting brand of rugby and keep the ball in hand. We will need to sort our scrum out, defensively we will need to be strong and we’ll look for a few chinks in their armour that we’ll try to exploit.

“They have really set the Currie Cup alight since the first round. So we know we’ve got a huge challenge on our hands and we are looking forward to it.”

Additional Notes
With this being our last pool match of the group stages of the competition and with a home playoff not guaranteed, The Sharks will be celebrating and acknowledging the invaluable contribution made by Jacques Botes, the most capped player in Sharks and Absa Currie Cup history, who has announced his retirement at the end of the competition.
