The Sharks have named their big name signing Juan Hernandez to start against the Leopards at Royal Bafokeng stadium in Rustenburg on Friday.
With scrumhalf Rory Kockott ruled out of the clash with a shoulder injury, Hernandez will partner Charl McLeod in the halfback combination in order to provide that extra boost in the kicking department.
Young Guy Cronje will play off the bench. In other changes, talented Wiehahn Herbst starts his first game at tighthead prop while Pat Cilliers moves to loosehead as Deon Carstens is out with a rib injury.
Odwa Ndungane is yet another experienced player who has been sidelined with injury (hamstring), and has been replaced by fleet-footed Chris Jordaan.
Meanwhile, Waylon Murray continues to be brought back slowly after an ongoing knee injury and will be on the bench for the second consecutive week.

Kick off is at 19h00
