Cape Town - Sharks coach Robert du Preez has named his team for Saturday’s Currie Cup clash against Western Province at Newlands (17:10 kick-off).

Du Preez made just one change to the team that defeated the Blue Bulls 26-19 at Kings Park last weekend.

The enforced change comes amongst the backs where Lwazi Mvovo is replaced by S’bura Sithole on the wing after the former was recalled to the Springbok touring squad.

The Sharks currently top the Currie Cup standings with four wins from four.
