The Sharks have named the same starting XV for the third successive week for their match against the Stormers at Kings Park.
S’bu Nkosi was stretchered from the field in last week’s win over the Blues, but it was more of a precautionary move and he takes his position on the right wing.
While there were changes to the Sharks bench ahead of that Blues game, coach Robert du Preez has made none this time around.
The Sharks are currently top of the South African conference, having beaten the Sunwolves and Blues.
‘We couldn’t ask for much better than the two big wins, it’s a confidence booster for us going into this week’s match against the Stormers,’ said centre Lukhanyo Am.
‘Like us, the Stormers have a big pack and a good backline, we know we need to pitch up as far as physicality goes.’
Sharks – 15 Aphelele Fassi, 14 Sbu Nkosi, 13 Lukhanyo Am, 12 André Esterhuizen, 11 Makazole Mapimpi, 10 Rob du Preez, 9 Louis Schreuder (c), 8 Dan du Preez, 7 Tyler Paul, 6 Jacques Vermeulen, 5 Ruan Botha, 4 Hyron Andrews, 3 Coenie Oosthuizen, 2 Akker van Merwe, Tendai Mtawarira.
Subs: 16 Kerron van Vuuren, 17 Juan Schoeman, 18 Thomas du Toit, 19 Gideon Koegelenberg, 20 Phendulani Buthelezi, 21 Cameron Wright, 22 Jeremy Ward, 23 Curwin Bosch.
