Gold makes three Sharks changes for Lions





Durban Super Rugby franchise the Sharks have made three changes to the side
that lost to the Cheetahs for this weekend’s clash with South African rivals
the Lions in Durban.

Sharks Director of Rugby Gary Gold says that they have tried to keep the changes
to a minimum but injury has forced them into making changes.

Tendai Mtawarira who was injured last week is replaced by Dale Chadwick while
also in the forwards Lubabalo Mtyanda comes in for Mouritz Botha.

The other change is in the backline as Odwa Ndungane comes into the starting
line up replacing S’bura Sithole.

“Due to injuries we have had to necessitate a few changes to the team,”
explaned Gold.

“Apart from those injury enforced changes we have tried to keep the team
as consistent as possible, so that players have another opportunity to get the
wrongs of the past weekend right.

“We are looking forward to a physical battle against a very good Lions
