Back in Action

After a 10-day break in action, the Cell C Sharks are back on the field to take on the Toyota Cheetahs in Bloemfontein on Wednesday afternoon in the second of the series of preparation matches.

After despatching the Tafel Lager Griquas last Sunday in emphatic fashion, the Cell C Sharks will be up against a formidable opponent this week in what promises to be an exciting clash.

Centre Jeremy Ward leads a team that head coach Sean Everitt has only slightly jiggled from the previous match, naming the same matchday 23, but making three rotational changes.

John-Hubert Meyer gets a start in the front row as he switches with Michael Kumbirai in the only change amongst the forwards while Jordan Chait is named at flyhalf with Manie Libbok shifting to the bench.

The final change sees Thaakir Abrahams and Werner Kok exchanging jerseys with the former getting an opportunity with a start on the wing.
