Sharks name Currie Cup team to face Griquas

Currie Cup champions the Sharks have named their team to play the Griquas in their opening Currie Cup match at GWK Park in Kimberley on Saturday.

Sharks coach Brad Macleod-Henderson says that the team is excited about starting their Currie Cup defence.

“We’ve had a good week’s training, there has been great energy, a lot of young guys, everyone looking forward to playing, especially those who haven’t played as much rugby as they would have liked this year, so it’s a great opportunity and everyone is very excited,” said Macleod-Henderson.

“Griquas have probably had a bit more time to prepare than us, but we don’t use that as an excuse, we’ve trained hard this week, put a few things together and the guys are excited about playing, so they’re going to go out there and give it their all.”
