Durban - The Sharks have named uncapped flyhalf Boeta Chamberlain in their line-up for Sunday's Currie Cup clash against the Golden Lions in Johannesburg.

This comes after regular flyhalf Curwin Bosch was lost to a lower back sprain that has ruled him out of action.

Head coach Sean Everitt has had no hesitation in including Chamberlain, who he coached in last year’s victorious U-19 campaign. 

John-Hubert Meyer will start at tighthead prop in the other change to the starting XV for Coenie Oosthuizen who has a ligament injury on his left knee, while another youngster, Dylan Richardson, comes onto the bench as back-up to Kerron van Vuuren at hooker, his first senior cap in sight.

Utility back Leolin Zas is also named on the bench for the injured Marius Louw, who picked up an unfortunate MCL injury to his left knee in last week’s match. 

Everitt will be asking for his charges to follow the standard they set last week against Free State where they showed incredible composure in the face of huge pressure to win.
