Sharks head coach Robert du Preez has named Beast Mtawarira in his Super Rugby team to play the Jaguares at Kings Park in Durban on Saturday.

Mtawarira was unavailable for selection last weekend due to a family matter but returns this weekend to face the Argentina based super rugby side.

“Going into round seven of the competition both teams find ourselves with equal log points (18) and in the context of our group standings, this game is very important for us, ” said Sharks head coach du Preez.

“The Jaguares are a physical unit who enjoy running from all parts of the field and we know that we are in for a tough battle on Saturday.

“There were many positives that we took away from last week’s match and the growth that we showed in many areas of the game was pleasing.

“”We want to build on that this week and have worked on areas we feel has let us down. This is our final match before our bye and our players know what their task at hand is and are determined to give it their all.”
