    The two teams met last week with the South African franchise side running out easy 64-14 winners.

    The Sharks side for this clash is a mixture of both experience and youth with the likes of Craig Burden at hooker, SA Under 20 captain Phepsi Buthelezi at No 8 and new signing Jordan Chait at flyhalf.

    The match is scheduled to kick-off at 15:00 at Kings Park.

    The Sharks' first-choice team, which beat Russia 64-14 last Friday, will tackle the Stormers at FNB Stadium on Sunday.
