Coach names his team to face Griquas
Sharks coach Robert du Preez has named his Currie Cup team to play the Griquas on Friday at Growthpoint Kings Park (kick-off is at 7pm).
Loose forward Jean-Luc du Preez has been rested this week and Hyron Andrews was not considered for selection due to a shoulder injury.
In recognition of Women’s Month, the Cell C Sharks will be wearing green armbands, for all their matches during the month of August, to show their stand against the violence of women and our support of the Jes Foord Foundation and the wonderful work they do.
Du Preez said: “I was happy with the effort from the team to bounce back after a frustrating first half against the Pumas and the fact that we managed to stop them from scoring was even more pleasing. It is important to carry that momentum into this match and for the players to perform before we head on the road for two tough away matches.
“The Griquas are a good team and are always competitive. We know what we can expect on Friday.”
