Mvovo at 15, Alberts at 4 for Cell C Sharks
March 27, 2014
The Cell C Sharks team to play the Waratahs in Saturday’s Vodacom Super Rugby clash at Growthpoint Kings Park shows a number of changes as the team look to retain their log position and dominance of the local conference.

Four home wins so far translates into top of the overall log and the South African Conference, but to remain there requires a big performance against the Waratahs on Saturday, another of the forms teams in this year’s competition.

“We didn’t play well and we’re not making excuses; we weren’t on top of our game properly,” said Director of Rugby Jake White following the Bulls match.

White’s changes see Lwazi Mvovo shifting to fullback with SP Marais playing off the bench and Odwa Ndungane returning to the side following compassionate leave. At halfback, Fred Zeilinga is in for Patrick Lambie and Charl McLeod replaces Cobus Reinach.

There are two changes amongst the forwards. Willem Alberts shifts to lock following the loss through injury of Anton Bresler, with Alberts’ flank position taken up by Jean Deysel.

There is a debut opportunity for scrumhalf Stefan Ungerer while Keegan Daniel makes a welcome return to the side having completed his injury recovery programme.

Cell C Sharks: Lwazi Mvovo, Odwa Ndungane, S’bura Sithole, Frans Steyn, JP Pietersen, Fred Zeilinga, Charl McLeod, Ryan Kankowski, Jean Deysel, Marcell Coetzee, Stephan Lewies, Willem Alberts, Jannie du Plessis, Bismarck du Plessis (captain), Tendai Mtawarira. Replacements: Kyle Cooper, Dale Chadwick, Lourens Adriaanse, Ettienne Oosthuizen, Keegan Daniel, Stefan Ungerer, Heimar Williams, SP Marais.
