    Cape Town - The  Sharks have announced their touring squad to take on the Jaguares in their penultimate pool match of the 2019 Super Rugby campaign.

    Saturday’s match is the second last of the pool stages, whih will be followed by a successive away game against the Stormers in Cape Town before the start of the knock-out rounds.

    With the congestion in the South African pool as it is both fixtures are of utmost importance for the Sharks. 

    Head coach Robert du Preez has named a 25 man squad split into 14 forwards and 11 backs.

    Akker van der Merwe remains on the injured list and has not been included in the squad, although Craig Burden is expected to return from injury and has been named as the second hooker alongside Kerron van Vuuren.

    Jeremy Ward, who has led the Sharks XV in the SuperSport Challenge has also been included amongst the backs.
