Sharks Super Rugby head coach Robert du Preez has named Benhard Janse van Rensburg in his starting XV to play the Southern Kings at Kings Park.

Regular flyhalf Patrick Lambie is unavailable so Du Preez has named rookie Benhard Janse van Rensburg in his place.

“Injuries and Springbok player rest protocols have necessitated changes to our team this week,” said du Preez.

Obviously losing a player of Pat’s calibre is a massive loss for us, but we have some exciting youngsters in that position and we are looking forward to seeing them make the step up.

“We are not underestimating the Kings and although some of their results have not gone their way, they have been playing some good rugby. We’ve spoken about wanting to improve each week and our focus will be on finishing our opportunities and being more clinical.

“The players loved playing at home last week and the vibe was fantastic. We want to show great intent and make our fans proud.”
