THE Sharks XV coach Sean Everitt has made two changes to his team for today’s clash with the fifth-placed Leopards at King’s Park, following injuries and the promotion of lock Ross Skeate to John Plumtree’s Super Rugby squad.

Cobus Reinach replaces injured scrumhalf Ross Cronje (ankle) while Skeate is replaced by Jandre Marais.

Hooker Craig Burden returns to the bench after taking a blow to the head a fortnight ago.

The Sharks XV are in third place in the south section after their defeat to Griquas last weekend.

The match kicks off at 4.45 pm today ahead of the Super Rugby clash between the Sharks and Lions.
