Sharks bolstered for Canes

Willie le Roux, Paul Jordaan and Ruan Botha have been included in the Sharks' 25-man squad for this Saturday's quarter-final against the Hurricanes.

Le Roux and Jordaan have returned timeously from injury, while the Sharks have made a successful dispensation application for Botha to be cleared to play in Saturday's knockout clash.

Botha was listed as an injured player at the start of the season, and although he hasn't played in the mandatory four games to be cleared for the knockout stage, Sanzaar have clearly conceded that the Sharks are short of second-row cover.
