Settled Sharks for Kings

Sharks aim for consistency after selecting an unchanged team to travel to Port Elizabeth.

The team that did the job for the Sharks against the Stormers gets a shot to take on the Kings, hoping to keep their unbeaten streak going.

Jean Deysel will hope to continue his form with another good showing, keeping the evergreen Jacques Botes out of the starting lineup. Cobus Reinach again gets the nod above Charl McLeod, who must be frustrated after not seeing a minute of play in the previous two matches.

Coach John Plumtree mentioned in the week that he wants his backs to get more ball this week, while still being watchful of the Kings backline and what they can do.

Sharks: 15. Louis Ludik, 14. JP Pietersen, 13. Paul Jordaan, 12. Frans Steyn (c), 11. Lwazi Mvovo, 10. Pat Lambie, 9. Cobus Reinach, 8. Ryan Kankowski, 7. Jean Deysel, 6. Marcell Coetzee, 5. Franco van der Merwe, 4. Anton Bresler, 3. Jannie du Plessis, 2. Craig Burden, 1. Tendai Mtawarira Substitutes: 16. Kyle Cooper, 17. Wiehahn Herbst, 18. Pieter-Steph du Toit, 19. Jacques Botes, 20. Charl McLeod, 21. Meyer Bosman, 22. Odwa Ndungane
