Sharks at near full strength in Currie Cup for Blue Bulls

Lwazi Mvovo is back in the starting line up

The Sharks have named a near full strength Currie Cup team to play the Blue Bulls at Kings Park in Durban on Saturday.

There has been some mixed news in the Sharks build up as Stephan Lewies injured his hamstring in training and was not considered for selection.

The Sharks do however welcome back Springbok winger Lwazi Mvovo to the starting line up.

Looking ahead to this week Sharks coach Robert du Preez said, “Three bonus point wins from three matches played is obviously pleasing, there is still a lot of rugby to be played in this campaign and we have got to improve every single week.

“A big focus for us is cutting down our error rate.”

“The Blue Bulls are going to be our toughest game yet in the competition and they are dangerous all around the park. We need to stick to our game-plan and execution, intention and attitude is key.”
