Sbu Nkosi is one of a handful of changes to the Sharks team that has been named for Saturday’s home Super Rugby clash with the Jaguares in Durban.
Last week, head coach Sean Everitt rested flankers James Venter and Tyler Paul and both have been restored to the starting line-up, as has wing Nkosi.
Nkosi is back to full fitness while Tambwe has been shifted to the bench.
This team resembles the side that played the season-opener against the Bulls almost completely, the only change coming on the bench where Tambwe is named this week and Boeta Chamberlain was included in week one.
With the Stormers having their bye this weekend, this match takes on an interesting hue.
The outcome will have a strong bearing on how the South African Conference will look on Saturday with the Sharks gaining the opportunity to go top should they defeat the Jaguares.
Kick-off is at 15:05.
