    Cape Town - The Sharks and Cheetahs have named two teams for their respective warm-up matches in Umlazi on Friday.

    Tera Mtembu will lead the Sharks in the first match (17:00) which will be 60 minutes, while regular captain Pat Lambie will lead the Sharks in the main game which will be broadcast on television.
