Cape Town – Sharks Director of Rugby Gary Gold has announced
his team for their Super Rugby clash against the Stormers at Newlands on
Saturday (17:15 kick-off).
Gold has made no changes to
the 23-man team that beat the Jaguares 19-15 at Kings Park last weekend.
A much anticipated battle of
brothers between the loose-forward twins Jean-Luc and Daniel representing the Sharks,
and their older brother, flyhalf Robert for the Stormers, will not materialise
after the latter picked up an injury in his team’s defeat of the Cheetahs last
But there will be battles
aplenty in this much-anticipated clash between two sides who have won their
opening fixtures and are currently fighting it out for top honours.
