The Sharks have made three changes to their starting 15 for their Clash against the Gallagher Chiefs on Saturday on the back of their draw against the Crusaders last weekend.
In the pack, Hyron Andrews and Jacques Vermeulen get starting births which sees Philip van der Walt to No 8.
The sole change to the backline sees Marius Louw start at inside centre with Andrè Esterhuizen left out of the 23 for rotational reasons.
Fez Mbatha has joined up with the squad after Akker van der Merwe returned to South Africa with a shoulder niggle after recently making his return following his ban for the punch up against Schalk Brits.
