    Cape Town - The Sharks have named a strong side for their pre-season friendly against a Bulls XV in Durban on Friday. The match will take place at Northwood Crusaders and will kick off at 17:00.

    Pat Lambie will captain the side once again while there is an opportunity for Curwin Bosch at fullback. 

    "This is an important match for us," said Sharks head coach Robert du Preez.

    "It’s our last opportunity to fine tune our plans before the competition starts. 

    "We need to be well structured and accurate with our execution."

    The Sharks begin their Super Rugby season when they travel to the Reds on February 24. They will wear black armbands on Friday in honour of Joost van der Westhuizen, who died on Monday.
