After a morale-boosting victory against the Eastern Province U/19 in Port Elizabeth last Saturday, the Cell C Sharks U/19 will look to build on the momentum from that match, when they play the Leopards U/19 tomorrow. The match will take place on the KP 2 field at Growthpoint KINGS PARK at 12h30.
With seven matches completed in the competition, the team still have a chance to qualify for the last four and will be boosted by the inclusion of lock JJ van der Mescht and flank Pendulani “Pepsi” Buthelezi, who recently did duty for SA Schools.
The injury to captain Hendrik Brendel has necessitated a positional swop amongst the loose-trio with Pendulani Buthelzi wearing the number 8 jersey and amongst the locks JJ van der Mescht ireplaces the injured Calvin Zandamela.
Injuries have had an influence on the team’s campaign so far, but head coach Donald Ngwenya believes in his young players and is still hopeful for a strong finish.
