Bok prop duo back to face Bulls
Cape Town - Sharks Director of Rugby Gary Gold has named his team to tackle the Bulls in a Super Rugby clash in Durban on Saturday.
Gold only made two changes to his starting team from the one that lost 23-21 to the Lions in Johannesburg last weekend.
The Springbok prop duo of Jannie du Plessis and Beast Mtawarira return after an enforced rest last week as part of the agreement with SA Rugby to provide regular breaks to top Springboks.
Lock Marco Wentzel retains the captaincy while, the backline remains unchanged.
Saturday’s clash at Kings Park kicks off at 17:05.
