The Sharks have returned home with the wind in their sails following their triumph over the Reds in their final Super Rugby tour match last weekend.

Victory in Queensland was their third win from four games on their Australasia trip. Their busy programme continues this weekend with the Jaguares set to visit Kings Park.

Assistant coach David Williams says their performances on the road have given the team the momentum they need to reach the business end of the competition. While their matches have come thick and fast, Williams says they rested and rotated players well.

Sharks coach Sean Everitt made good on his promise to give his entire squad an opportunity to play while on tour.

On his first-ever tour, Sanele Nohamba emerged as one of the Sharks brightest young talents. Nohamba made his starting debut at scrumhalf and deputised at flyhalf.

Williams says Nohamba’s work ethic off the field has helped him make the transition to Super Rugby.

The Sharks will see this weekend’s match against the Argentine franchise as a chance for redemption after they were thrashed by them at home last year, conceding 51 points.

Williams says the Sharks in form front row are looking forward to facing the Jaguares whose formidable forward pack can front up to any team in the competition. – Report by Thahir Asmal
