Daniel makes Sharks return
30 Aug 2012
Keegan Daniel will start for the Sharks when they face the Free State Cheetahs at Kings Park on Saturday.
Daniel was excluded from the 28-man Springbok squad that will tour Australasia for the second leg of the Rugby Championship. He will wear the No 8 jersey, relegating Francois Kleinhans to the bench as Jacques Botes makes a positional switch in the loose trio. Flank Jean Deysel retains the captaincy.
A second change to the starting line-up sees Meyer Bosman start at inside centre, in place of Marius Joubert.
As expected, Pieter Dixon provides hooker cover on the bench.
Sharks – 15 Louis Ludik, 14 Odwa Ndungane, 13 Paul Jordaan, 12 Meyer Bosman, 11 Sbura Sithole, 10 Riaan Viljoen, 9 Charl McLeod, 8 Keegan Daniel, 7 Jean Deysel (c), 6 Jacques Botes, 5 Anton Bresler, 4 Steven Sykes, 3 Wiehahn Herbst, 2 Monde Hadebe, 1 Dale Chadwick.
Subs: 16 Pieter Dixon, 17 Julian Redelinghuys, 18 Jandre Marais, 19 Francois Kleinhans, 20 Cobus Reinach, 21 Marius Joubert, 22 Rosko Specman.
