Sharks Super Rugby Head Coach Robert du Preez has retained the team that beat the Blues for this Friday’s match against the Hurricanes in Napier.

Du Preez says that defence and discipline will be the two key factors that will be non-negotiables this weekend.

“After the disappointments of the first two weeks on tour, the boys were hurt, but they were desperate to get a first win on tour. If there had been a lack of effort previously I would have been really worried, but that wasn’t the issue.

“Against the Blues the boys brought the effort and the accuracy, so it was much better and I was really pleased with that performance.”

“We know this week will be tougher than last week, the Hurricanes are the number one team in New Zealand in my opinion. Our defence and discipline is going to be key.”

Looking to this weekend Du Preez said, “We know this week will be tougher than last week, the Hurricanes are the number one team in New Zealand in my opinion.”
