Meyer Bosman will start at flyhalf when the Sharks host the Bulls this Friday.
Bosman replaces Riaan Viljoen at No 10, as coach John Plumtree has decided to shift Viljoen to fullback. This in turn sees last week’s fullback Louis Ludik moving to the wing.
Paul Jordaan will start alongside Tim Whitehead in the centres. Pieter Dixon starts at hooker in the absence of Craig Burden, who is with the Springboks.
Sharks – 15 Riaan Viljoen, 14 Odwa Ndungane, 13 Paul Jordaan, 12 Tim Whitehead, 11 Louis Ludik, 10 Meyer Bosman, 9 Cobus Reinach, 8 Keegan Daniel (c), 7 Jean Deysel, 6 Jacques Botes, 5 Anton Bresler, 4 Steven Sykes, 3 Wiehahn Herbst, 2 Pieter Dixon, 1 Dale Chadwick.
Subs: 16 Kyle Cooper, 17 Julian Redelinghuys, 18 Jandre Marais, 19 Lubabalo Mtembu, 20 Charl McLeod, 21 Marius Joubert, 22 Sbura Sithole.
