Sharks Director of Rugby Gary Gold has named a 27-man Super Rugby squad that
will tour Australia and New Zealand.

Gold has selected a forwards heavy squad and said, “I have gone for 15
forwards and 12 backs, my selection was based on who is fit and healthy, but
the nice thing is that there are a lot of guys who can play in different positions.

“We are looking forward to this tour. Tours are funny things, I’ve seen
teams in far worse positions than us fight to get back and we not giving up
the fight. I believe in this group of guys and I am keen to work with them in
adverse times – that’s when you see true warriors come out.

“That’s our challenge: we are down but we’re not out and now is the time
to stand up and fight back. If we come back fighting in the last six games,
we’ll salvage a lot of respect”, he added.

Patrick Lambie, Ryan Kankowski , Pieter-Steph du Toit , SP Marais , Tera Mtembu
, Paul Jordaan and Jean Deysel were not considered for selection either due
to injury or suspension.
