Cape Town - Sharks coach Robert du Preez has named his side for Saturday's Currie Cup semi-final against the Golden Lions in Durban. 

After finishing second on the overall log, the Sharks earned the honour of a home semi-final.

Eventual log leaders, Western Province, will host the Blue Bulls in the second semi-final. 

Du Preez has stuck largely with the side he named last week.

After being named to start against Griquas but then pulling out late, Thomas du Toit and Daniel du Preez return in the tighthead prop and eighthman positions respectively. 

Marius Louw is back at inside centre and Robert du Preez returns to the flyhalf position, with Curwin Bosch reverting back to fullback. 

Kick-off is at 14:30.
