There's a strong South African flavour in Sale Sharks' line-up for Friday night's English Premiership match against Harlequins at the Twickenham Stoop.
The 2019/20 Premiership season is set to resume following the coronavirus-enforced layoff.
There are no fewer than EIGHT South Africans in the Sale starting XV. Six of them are in the pack - prop Coenie Oosthuizen, hooker Akker van der Merwe, locks Lood de Jager and Jean-Luc du Preez, flank and captain Jono Ross and No 8 Dan du Preez.
In the backline, Faf de Klerk will partner Rob du Preez at halfback.
Centre Rohan Janse van Rensburg, another Springbok plying his trade at Sale, is serving a suspension.
Harlequins, meanwhile, also have Springbok lock Stephan Lewies in their starting line-up.
Friday's match will be broadcast live on SuperSport 6 at 20:40 (SA time).
