Cape Town - The Sharks are confident that they can overcome the loss of captain and flyhalf Pat Lambie in the early stages of Super Rugby.

Lambie will be sidelined for up three months with a shoulder injury suffered in the Sharks’ pre-season clash against Toulon.

However, attack coach Robert du Preez feels they have enough depth in the position to make up for Lambie’s loss.

"Pat is a big loss to us, as a leader and as a player," Du Preez told Rugby365.

"We have three really good young flyhalves in Inny Radebe, Garth April and Curwin Bosch. We’ve also got Joe Pietersen who is an experienced campaigner, so we do have adequate cover for the flyhalf position."

The Sharks open their Super Rugby campaign against the Kings in Port Elizabeth next Saturday (February 27).
