Sharks star Curwin Bosch is back in the team but will play at fullback as coach Sean Everitt rings changes for their Currie Cup match against Western Province on Saturday.

Everitt on Thursday announced his matchday 23 for their last outing in the round-robin of the domestic competition.

The match at Kings Park is set to kick-off at 7 pm.

The Sharks head into it having confirmed their place in the semi-finals, but Province are still chasing a top-four finish.

Star flyhalf Bosch missed the Sharks’ last three games due to Covid-19 protocols, but the 23-year-old player replaces Anthony Volmink at fullback on Saturday.

Everitt has also opted for a new front row of Ntuthuko Mchunu, Kerron van Vuuren and Khutha Mchunu for Khwezi Mona, Dan Jooste and Lourens Adriaanse respectively.

In the second row, Le Roux Roets joins Gerbrandt Grobler who comes in place of Emile van Heerden as James Venter replaces Dylan Richardson in the final change to the forward pack.

With Grant Williams’ call up to the Springbok squad, Sanele Nohamba makes a return in the No.9 spot.

There is a new centre partnership with Murray Koster and Werner Kok taking over from Marius Louw and Jeremy Ward.
