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.

Burden’s place in the front row goes to veteran Pieter Dixon.

John Plumtree’s men are lying second on the log with three rounds of matches remaining, while the Bulls are second from bottom.
