South Africa: Bosch Back, Vosloo Debuts for Sharks

Curwin Bosch returns for his first start of the season at fullback, while Lwazi Mvovo drops to the bench.

There is also a Super Rugby debut for Wian Volsoo, who starts in the No 6 jersey, while Gideon Koegelenberg will also debut should he come off the bench.

In the front row, hooker Akker van der Merwe gets a start while Chiliboy Ralepelle comes onto the bench with Franco Marais missing out.

Tera Mtembu, meanwhile, gets a start at No 8.
