    Durban - The Sharks will take on the Western Force in Saturday’s Super Rugby clash at Kings Park bolstered by the inclusion of Pat Lambie who has been named amongst the reserves.

    Lambie has not played for the Sharks since taking a knock against the Waratahs in round 3, but his return is a most welcome one.

    In other changes, there are two new wings this week with Kobus van Wyk also returning from injury, taking over from Odwa Ndungane, while the exciting Sbu Nkosi, who is making his debut, has replaced Lwazi Mvovo who has been rested this week.

    Up front, there is rotation in the second row with Stephan Lewies making way for Etienne Oosthuizen who is joined by the other Oosthuizen - Coenie - who comes in for Lourens Adriaanse at tight head prop.

    Kick-off for Saturday’s clash at Kings Park is scheduled for 15:05.
