The Sharks’ bid to make a name for themselves on European soil in the forthcoming Rainbow Cup effectively gets going on Sunday when they entertain Griquas in their first preparation match with a combination of regular players, reserves and youngsters.

This mix-and-match selection for the 5.15 pm kick-off at Kings Park suggests that coach Sean Everitt is not wasting any time in taking the room available to him to improve his selection options for the Rainbow Cup starting in mid-April.

While Sharks fans may well recognise most of the names in Sunday’s matchday-23 from past games, there are notable absentees and, instead, opportunities for youngsters such as scrumhalf Grant Williams and centre Murray Koster to improve their credentials.
