Sharks coach Sean Everitt has kept changes to a minimum for their preparation series encounter against the Cheetahs in Bloemfontein on Wednesday evening.
Centre Jeremy Ward again leads the Sharks after a successful 35-10 win over Griquas in Durban.
Everitt has named the same matchday 23, but made three rotational changes for the trip to the Free State. Tighthead prop John-Hubert Meyer gets a start in the front row, switching places with Michael Kumbirai in the only change amongst the forwards, while Jordan Chait is named at flyhalf with Manie Libbok shifting to the bench.
Chait, 24, formerly starred for Maties in the Varsity Cup.
The final change sees Thaakir Abrahams and Werner Kok exchanging jerseys with the former getting an opportunity to start at right wing.
Wednesday's match kicks off at 19:00.
