Gri­quas are set to face a keen Sharks line-up

Diamond Fields Advertiser - - SPORT - DARRYN POL­LOCK IN DUR­BAN

WHILE the Sharks have had to deal with the odd in­jury here and there, they have largely had it their own way in terms of player ro­ta­tion this Cur­rie Cup.

Now, as the Tafel Lager Gri­quas loom to­mor­row at 5pm in Kim­ber­ley, there have been a few changes made – in­jury en­forced and other­wise – but the real is­sue is try­ing to re­ward ev­ery­one with game time.

Coach Robert du Preez has done some sim­ple ro­ta­tion of the front row with Franco Marais com­ing back into the No 2 jer­sey and Juan Schoe­man lin­ing up next to him.

Akker van der Merwe and Thomas du Toit drop to the bench in what will be a big im­pact should the Sharks need it on the hard grounds of Kim­berly.

The for­wards have worked tire­lessly for the Sharks, and prob­a­bly de­serve a rest against the bot­tom of the log Gri­quas, but in the backs, Lukhanyo Am is not avail­able through in­jury so Mar­ius Louw eas­ily slots in. Odwa Ndun­gane also re­turns from in­jury to re­place Col­lege Rovers flyer Tythan Adams while the bench sees Hil­ton school­boy star Tris­tan Blewett line up for a chance at a first Cur­rie Cup cap.
