WP change one for final
Check out a gallery of the Sharks as they gear up for the Currie Cup final against Western Province.
Cape Town - Western Province head coach Allister Coetzee has named his team for Saturday's 2012 Absa Currie Cup final against the Sharks at Kings Park in Durban.
Kick-off is at 17:00.
Coetzee has made one change to the starting line-up that beat the Golden Lions 21-16 in last Saturday's dramatic semi-final, with Damian de Allende and Marcel Brache trading places - De Allende starting in the No 12 jersey and Brache dropping to the bench.
"They have got a powerful team and I think Marcel (Brache) will do a job off the bench and we will probably be needing his experience in the last couple of minutes of the game," explained Coetzee.
"We have got to front up physically and I think Damien (de Allende) is the right choice.
"He is quite a good ball-carrier, he has got explosive pace, he is quite big and tall and he has got good core skills as well."
Flank Deon Fourie will captain the team, with six Under-21 players in the matchday 22 and six Test Springboks and one Canadian international in the squad.Teams: Sharks:
