Kobus van Wyk will start in place of the injured S’bu Nkosi when the Sharks host the Jaguares at Kings Park this Saturday.
Nkosi has been ruled out with an ankle injury, but the good news for the Sharks is that Dan du Preez has recovered from a neck injury to take up his place at No 8.
The only change to the forward pack sees veteran prop Beast Mtawarira return in place of Juan Schoeman after having his workload reduced last week.
