Botes to hit 150

Sharks flank Jacques Botes will extend his Currie Cup record when he plays in his 150th match against the Pumas in Nelspruit this Friday.

Botes made his provincial debut for the Pumas in 2002 and remained at the union until 2004.

He then joined the Sharks in 2005, and was part of the side that won the Currie Cup title in 2008, 2010, and 2013.

The 33-year-old will start at openside flank for the Sharks on Friday.
