Bosman cleared to face Bulls
Cape Town - The Sharks have received a boost ahead of their clash against the Bulls at Kings Park with centre Meyer Bosman
cleared to play.
Bosman was a doubt for the match after he sustained a nose injury in their 23-13 win over the Force in Perth last week.
It was initially feared he had broken his nose, but according to the Beeld website
, the injury is not as severe which will see the Springbok take his place in midfield.
This will be a relief for Sharks coach John Plumtree, as they have already have JP Pietersen, Frans Steyn
, Paul Jordaan and Tim Whitehead on the crocked list.
Had Bosman been absent, then Butch James would have been forced straight
into the starting team after a long injury layoff.
With Pietersen being ruled out for an extended period due to a groin injury
, Piet Lindeque is expected to partner Bosman in midfield.
The Sharks will take heart from their win in Perth, when they ended a run of five successive defeats. It will be tough against the high-riding Bulls though - who sit comfortably at the top of the SA Conference
with 46 points from 11 games, leading the second-placed Cheetahs by six points.
The Sharks are third with 33 points from 12 games.
The clash at Kings Park kicks off at 19:10 on Saturday.
