Cape Town - Sharks Director of Rugby Gary Gold has named his team to tackle Griquas in a Currie Cup clash in Kimberley on Saturday.

Gary Gold has only made one change to the team that lost 17-13 at home to the Blue Bulls last weekend.

Lock Marco Wentzel returns to the starting line-up as captain, having played off the bench last week when No 8 Philip van der Walt led the side.

Wentzel’s return sees Etienne Oosthuizen move to flank, with Christiaan de Bruin named on the bench in an otherwise unchanged line-up.

Saturday’s clash is scheduled for 15:00.
