Sharks put Boks on ice

TEAM ANNOUNCEMENT: The Sharks head coach John Plumtree has revealed his team to face Glasgow Warriors in Round 14 of the 2024 United Rugby Championship season.


The coach has made wholesale changes to the side that recorded a 36-30 win over Edinburgh in the Challenge Cup quarterfinal clash last weekend.

The Springbok contingent of Eben Etzebeth, Jaden Hendrikse, Lukhanyo Am, Makazole Mapimpi, Ox Nche and Bongi Mbonambi will not feature in the match as they are being rested.

Francois Venter leads a side that despite the many changes, still brings a vast amount of experience.

Venter partners with Murray Koster in the midfield.

Springbok Grant Williams will don the No.9 jersey. Williams is joined by flyhalf Curwin Bosch at halfback.

Aphiwe Dyantyi and Eduan Keyter are the wings, while Boeta Chamberlain is at fullback.


Nick Hatton makes his debut at No.8. He is flanked by Lappies Labuschagne and Tino Mavesere in the back row.

In the second row Corne Rahl and Gerbrandt Grobler are the locks.

Ntuthuko Mchunu, Dan Jooste and Hanro Jacobs make up the front row.

Vincent Kock will provide much-needed power from the bench, along with Vincent Tshituka.
