Springbok wing Nkosi returns to bolster Sharks

Reading Time: < 1 minutes

The Sharks have named a full-strength team to take on the Jaguares at home this Saturday. Springbok winger Sbu Nkosi returns to the team after recovering from the injury which ruled him out of the Sharks games.

Makazole Mapimpi is also back after he was rested against the Reds last weekend. Among the forwards, James Venter and Tyler Paul have both been restored to the run-on 15.

Sharks coach Sean Everitt says their squad management over the last month has shielded their players from fatigue. Audio:

The Jaguares pose a big threat to the Sharks and will arrive in Durban fresh off a big win over the Bulls at Loftus.

The 51-17 mauling of the Sharks will still be fresh in the minds of fans of the black and white-clad team. Sharks flyhalf Curwin Bosch says the Argentines have evolved over the years and now possess a dynamic game plan. Audio:

Bosch has become a key figure at the Sharks alongside the experienced Louis Schreuder. In previous seasons, injuries and a lack of game time has hindered the young flyhalf’s progress.

Under the guidance of Everitt, Bosch has started all four games that the Sharks have won this season and is the top points scorer in the competition.

Bosch says his good form comes down to his newfound, heightened responsibility in the team. Audio:
