Cell C Sharks Director of Rugby Jake White made six changes to his starting line-up for their Vodacom Super Rugby match against the Crusaders in Christchurch.
Three of these changes are positional, while three players who were on the bench last week, will start the match on Saturday.
SP Marais (fullback), Tera Mtembu (flank) and Etienne Oosthuizen (lock) were replacements last week against the Brumbies, but this week they take over from Lwazi Mvovo, Keegan Daniel and Willem Alberts respectively.
Mvovo will start at left wing with JP Pietersen moving over to the right to cover for the injured Odwa Ndungane. Upfront, Alberts will start at No 8, which means Ryan Kankowski and Keegan Daniel will start on the bench.
Cell C Sharks: SP Marais, JP Pietersen, S’bura Sithole, Paul Jordaan, Lwazi Mvovo, Frans Steyn, Cobus Reinach, Willem Alberts, Jean Deysel, Tera Mtembu, Stephan Lewies, Etienne Oosthuizen, Jannie du Plessis, Bismarck du Plessis (captain), Tendai Mtawarira. Replacements: Kyle Cooper, Dale Chadwick, Lourens Adriaanse, Ryan Kankowski, Keegan Daniel, Charl McLeod, Tim Swiel, Heimar Williams.
