South Africa: Sharks Forced Into Changes for Griquas Clash

Sharks coach Robert du Preez has named his team for Friday's Currie Cup encounter against Griquas in Kimberley (17:00 kick-off).

Up front, Juan Schoeman and Franco Marais come into the front row, replacing Thomas du Toit and Akker van der Merwe respectively.

Jean Droste also comes in for Tyler Paul at lock, with the latter shifting to flank in place of Jacques Vermeulen.

In the backline, Marius Louw replaces Lukhanyo Am at centre and finally, Odwa Ndungane starts in place of Tythan Adams.
