Johannesburg - Winger Danie Dames, who represented Namibia in the pool stages of the Rugby World Cup in New Zealand, has been included in the Leopards side to take on the Sharks in their Currie Cup match in Phokeng, outside Rustenburg, on Saturday.

Jovan Bowles replaced Dames on the bench in the team named on Wednesday.

Spanner Pretorius was struggling with "light headedness", the Leopards said in a statement, and was bracketed with Siya Mdaka on the bench.

A decision on Pretorius' availability would be made later in the week.

      @Kosie, the sharks are playing exactly like we know they can. That is the point. They will win. But not because they play so well.
