Hendrikse Given The Nod For Currie Cup Final

Hendrikse Given The Nod For Currie Cup Final

The Sharks have named their team to tackle the Blue Bulls in the Currie Cup Final at Loftus on Saturday.

Head coach Sean Everitt has the distinct pleasure of being able to name the same match day 23 that defeated Western Province in last week’s semi-final in Cape Town, with just one rotational change – at scrumhalf – where Jaden Hendrikse will start and Sanele Nohamba playing off the bench.

Looseforward Sikhumbuzo Notshe spoke ahead of the final saying:

“We’re thrilled to have secured a place in the final but we accept that we have a massive assignment at Loftus on Saturday afternoon,” he explains.

“But it’s an assignment we’re really excited about, especially as not a lot of players in our squad have been in finals, so this is a very special occasion.”

The most recent clash between the two sides was in Durban when the Sharks came away triumphant, but there were two losses in Pretoria last year which could potentially bear some scars for some sides.
