Cape Town - Patrick Lambie is likely to start at flyhalf for the Sharks in their Currie Cup semi-final against Free State in Durban on Saturday.

According to the Beeld website, the Springbok will start ahead of Fred Zeilinga, after the latter kept Lambie on the bench for last week's match against Western Province.

But the 20-year-old Zeilinga struggled with his kicking at a wet Kings Park, and was replaced by Lambie for the second half.

Lambie provided much needed spark and got the Sharks on the front-foot with good tactical kicking.

He did miss two vital penalty kicks at the end which saw the Sharks go down 13-17 and lose out on a chance of finishing top of the log.

However, the Springbok is nevertheless likely to get the nod in the starting team for Saturday's clash at Kings Park, which kicks off at 17:00.
