New front row for Sharks against Bulls

Sharks Director of Rugby Gary Gold has kept changes to a minimum for this week’s Super Rugby match against the Bulls at Kings Park but brought in Springbok prop duo of Jannie du Plessis and Beast Mtawarira.

Du Plessis and Mtawarira return to the Sharks starting line up after an enforced week of rest as per the agreement with SA Rugby over Springboks.

Marco Wentzel has retained the captaincy of a team that shows an unchanged back line from last week’s clash against the Lions.
