Sharks wing Madosh Tambwe is set to make his competitive debut for the team in their match against the Highlanders in Dunedin on Friday.
Tambwe, who joined the Sharks from the Lions last year, will start on the right wing in the only change to their starting lineup which won against the Vodacom Bulls last weekend.
The 22-year-old replaces Springbok speedster Sbu Nkosi, who has picked up a minor niggle and will sit out.
Meanwhile, Sharks captain Lukhanyo Am is set for a personal milestone as he will run out for his 50th Vodacom Super Rugby game for his team. Replacement hooker Craig Burden is also set to win his 50th Super Rugby cap if he comes off the bench.
Sharks – 15 Aphelele Fassi, 14 Madosh Tambwe, 13 Lukhanyo Am (c), 12 Andre Esterhuizen, 11 Makazole Mapimpi, 10 Curwin Bosch, 9 Louis Schreuder, 8 Sikumbuzo Notshe, 7 Tyler Paul, 6 James Venter, 5 Hyron Andrews, 4 Ruben van Heerden, 3 Thomas du Toit, 2 Kerron van Vuuren, 1 Ox Nche.
