Little-known Sean Robinson is the bolter in The Sharks' team for Saturday's Vodacom Super Rugby match at DHL Newlands against the DHL Stormers.
Robinson, who played for the Sharks U19s last year, comes in on the rigth wing for Odwa Ndungane in the only change to the backline.
“Sean is a youngster in his second year at the Sharks Academy and looks to have all the attributes of being a really good footballer,” said Sharks coach John Plumtree.
“It’s a great opportunity for him and we’ve placed no pressure on him to have a big game, just that he goes out and enjoys the experience. We’re hoping he has a good game and that he plays many more games for The Sharks.
Upfront, Ryan Kankowski will start at flank for the injured Jacques Botes, with Marcell Coetzee moving to the No 6 shirt.
Jean Deysel is back from injury and has been included on the bench, along with Ndungane.
The Sharks: Frans Steyn, Sean Robinson, Paul Jordaan, Meyer Bosman, JP Pietersen, Pat Lambie, Cobus Reinach, Keegan Daniel (captain), Ryan Kankowski, Marcell Coetzee, Franco van der Merwe, Pieter-Steph du Toit, Jannie du Plessis, Kyle Cooper, Tendai Mtawarira. Replacements: Craig Burden, Wiehahn Herbst, Anton Bresler, Jean Deysel, Charl McLeod, Riaan Viljoen, Odwa Ndungane.
