The Sharks have named an unchanged team to face the Stormers in a massive South African derby in Durban on Saturday.

It is their sixth game in a row, but coach Sean Everitt says he is confident he can still get the most out of his squad after making some rotational changes during their tour to Australasia.

Everitt has preached the power of consistency in the early weeks of the competition and says they must take advantage of a fit and healthy squad.

In the audio below, Everrit says the Sharks are ready:

The two coastal sides have brought the best out of each over the years and the fact that they are two standout South African sides at the moment makes the game at Kings Park even more interesting.

The Stormers will arrive at Kings Park off the back of their first defeat of the season, going down to the Blues last weekend.

The Sharks dismantled the Jaguares last weekend and are looking for their third straight win at the Tank. While the Stormers camp claims the clash could be season-defining, Everitt is not buying into that talk.

Everitt says the clash brings together two tactically astute teams. The Stormers have been defensively strong, twice completing shutting out teams with the likes of the Hurricanes and Bulls failing to score a single point against them.

On the other end, the Sharks have been enterprising with ball in hand, scoring 23 tries to date. Everitt says he would like to see both teams have a real go at each other. – Report by Thahir Asmal
