Durban - Sharks coach Robert du Preez has named his team for Friday’s friendly against French club Bordeaux-Begles at the Moses Mabhida Stadium.

Hooker Chiliboy Ralepelle will lead a youthful side that also contains a number of Super Rugby players to lend experience.

Fullback/flyhalf Curwin Bosch was not considered for selection due to a slight niggle.

A new face among the team is that of Luke Stringer, the former Western Province flank, who has joined the Sharks for their Currie Cup campaign.

The coaching staff will be looking carefully at the players with an eye on the Currie Cup which kicks off for the Sharks on Saturday, August 25 when they host the Blue Bulls.

The Durban Challenge encounter kicks off at 19:00 on Friday.

Sharks team:

15 Courtney Winnaar, 14 Kobus van Wyk, 13 Jeremy Ward, 12 Marius Louw, 11 Aphelele Fassi, 10 Robert du Preez, 9 Louis Schreuder, 8 Daniel du Preez, 7 Tyler Paul, 6 Wian Vosloo, 5 Hyron Andrews, 4 Gideon Koegelenberg, 3 John-Hubert Meyer, 2 Chiliboy Ralepelle (captain), 1 Juan Schoeman

Substitutes: 16 Kerron van Vuuren, 17 Akker van der Merwe, 18 Mzamo Majola, 19 Khuta Mchunu, 20 Andrew Evans, 21 Tera Mtembu, 22 Luke Stringer, 23 Cameron Wright, 24 Grant Williams, 25 Danrich Visagie, 26 Leolin Zas
