Sharks loose forward Thembelani Bholi will earn his first start for the team against the Griquas tonight.

In spite of being hit by Covid-19 in their camp, Sharks coach Sean Everitt has said the negative developments have not disrupted their plans for Friday’s crucial game against the Griquas.

The two sides are set to battle it out in a Super Rugby Unlocked match at Tafel Lager Park in Kimberley at 7 pm, where the Sharks will be looking for a bonus-point win to stay in the title race. However, the Durban-based franchise will have to do without three unnamed senior players as they have to isolate because of the virus.

On Thursday, the coastal outfit confirmed that their Covid-19 test results returned one positive case and two more players had to be isolated after coming in close contact with the infected person.
