Boland amped for Shark Tank

The Boland Kavaliers have made one change for their Currie Cup match against the Sharks in Durban on Friday night.

Deon Scholtz moves from wing to outside centre in place of Cornal Hendricks, who picked up a back injury against the Leopards. This sees utility back Mark Harris start on the wing and Alvin Hugo get a place on the bench.

Boland coach Deon Davids says his team are in a good frame of mind going into the King’s Park clash.

‘We are feeling very positive after our win last week,’ he told ‘However, even though we got the result, we still made a few mistakes that we needed to rectify. This helped us to improve during training and we will be a better team on Friday.’

The Sharks were poor in their opening game against WP but Davids believes they will still pose a huge threat.

‘The Sharks are a quality side with loads of experience, so I expect them to bounce back after their loss to a very good WP side,’ he said.
