Johannesburg - Sharks coach John Plumtree announced four changes to the side that will play the Leopards in Saturday's Currie Cup rugby match in Phokeng, near Rustenburg.

Gouws Prinsloo moves into the starting XV in the place of fullback Stefan Terblanche, who moves to the bench.

Terblanche could become the first South African player to win 100 caps in both the Currie Cup and Super Rugby.

Adrian Jacobs will receive a starting berth at outside centre in the place of Marius Joubert.

Meyer Bosman, who played at flyhalf in last week's match against Western Province, will combine with Jacobs in the midfield, with Frederic Michalak replacing him as pivot.

Conrad Hoffmann will slot in at scrumhalf after regular starter Charl McLeod was ruled out for the rest of the season with a fractured hip.
