Junior Bok gets Sharks' No.10 jersey
TEAM ANNOUNCEMENT: Sharks head coach Sean Everitt has named his team to face the Golden Lions in a Currie Cup Round Six clash in Johannesburg on Sunday.
Junior Springbok flyhalf Boeta Chamberlain will make his senior debut after the loss of Curwin Bosch to a lower back sprain.
Chamberlain was part of the Sharks’ victorious Under-19 campaign last year under Everitt.
John-Hubert Meyer will start at tighthead prop in the other change to the starting XV for Coenie Oosthuizen who has a ligament injury on his left knee.
Another youngster, Dylan Richardson, comes onto the bench as back-up to Kerron van Vuuren at hooker.
Utility back Leolin Zas is also named on the bench for an injured Marius Louw, who picked up an MCL injury to his left knee in last week’s match.
The Cell C Sharks have a huge assignment this weekend when they travel to Johannesburg to take on the Golden Lions at Emirates Airline Park in a vital Currie Cup clash on Sunday.
