Durban - The Sharks have made two personnel changes and several positional switches to their starting XV ahead of their Currie Cup clash against the Blue Bulls in Durban on Friday night.

Wing Lwazi Mvovo and hooker Craig Burden, both on international duty, are unavailable this week, with midfielder Paul Jordaan returning to the starting line-up among the backs.

Jordaan comes in at outside centre with Tim Whitehead shifting to the inside in place of Meyer Bosman, who moves to flyhalf.

Louis Ludik, who has played in the number 15 jersey in recent weeks, moves to the wing to fill the spot vacated by Mvovo.
