The Sharks XV: 15. Kobus de Kock,1 4. Piet Lindeque, 13. Jerome Pretorius, 12. Howard Mnisi, 11. Anton Verster, 10. Guy Cronje, 9. Ross Cronje (captain), 8. Lambert Groenewald, 7. Daniel Adonga, 6. Nic Claasen, 5. Gerhard Mostert, 4. Jandre Marais, 3. Wiehahn Herbst, 2. Kyle Cooper, 1. Sabelo Nhlapo.
