Rohan Janse van Rensburg will make his return from a four-week ban when the Sharks host Cardiff in a Vodacom United Rugby Championship clash in Durban on Sunday.
The changes for the Sharks for this match see Dian Bleuler and Carlü Sadie replacing Ntuthuko Mchunu and Thomas du Toit respectively in the front row.
Following his fine efforts off the bench, Justin Basson gets a start in the second row, with Gerbrandt Grobler shifting in place of Hyron Andrews who plays off the bench.
In the back row, James Venter captains and takes over from Dylan Richardson on the side of the scrum while Sikhumbuzo Notshe and Phepsi Buthelezi, both fresh off their SA’A’ commitments, swap jerseys.
In the backline, Werner Kok shifts to the left wing in place of Thaakir Abrahams, with the Blitzbok star’s position on the right wing occupied by Marnus Potgieter.
Rohan Janse van Rensburg is back, Ben Tapuai moves to the bench, with van Rensburg forming a Springbok partnership with the highly-rated and vastly experienced Francois Venter who has also been given the vice-captaincy for this match.
Lionel Cronje makes a welcome return to the team and is named on the bench.
The final change sees Anthony Volmink in for Aphelele Fassi who suffered an ankle injury in his SA ’A’ appearance against Munster.
