DURBAN – The Sharks have been disrupted by injuries and Springbok resting protocols ahead of their crunch clash with the Bulls in Durban on Saturday but have nevertheless put together a formidable side for the Rainbow Cup decider.

It is in the forwards that coach Sean Everitt has had his options decimated but his backline for the match is as powerful as he could hope to muster.

“Last week we went up to the Lions with a new-look team (because a number of players were at the Bok training camp) and we produced a display that surprised quite a few people,” Everitt said. “I think you will see the same on Saturday — all of these players are hungry to play and show what they can do in the jersey.”

Sharks: 15 Aphelele Fassi 14 Anthony Volmink 13 Lukhanyo Am 12 Marius Louw 11 Makazole Mapimpi 10 Curwin Bosch 9 Jaden Hendrikse 8 Phepsi Buthelezi 7 Thembelani Bholi 6 Siya Kolisi 5 Hyron Andrews 4 JJ van der Mescht 3 Khutha Mchunu 2 Kerron van Vuuren 1 Khwezi Mona
