Sharks coach Etienne Fynn has made several changes for his side’s Currie Cup clash with the Vodacom Bulls at Loftus Versfeld on Wednesday.
Emile van Heerden and Hyron Andrews take over from Le Roux Roets and Reniel Hugo in the second row, while Cameron Wright and Tito Bonilla will form a new-look halfback pairing. With Jeremy Ward not involved, Marnus Potgieter shifts to centre and Curwin Gertse gets a start on the wing.
