Veteran Sharks loose forward Jacques Botes will break new ground in the Currie Cup competition on Friday.

He will extends his Currie Cup record to 150 matches, which will make him the first player ever to reach this significant milestone.

Interestingly the player will mark this achievement against the Pumas, the team he first represented in SA's premier domestic competition.

Botes made his provincial debut for the Pumas in 2002 and remained at the union until 2004, before joining the Sharks in 2005.

The Sharks face the Pumas at the Mbombela Stadium in Nelspruit on Friday, in the opening match of Round Four and with both teams having had good starts to the competition it could prove to be a thrilling clash.
