Sharks slot in Dyantyi for derby duel – SARugbymag

The injection of speedster Aphiwe Dyantyi is the only change to the Sharks lineup to face the Vodacom Bulls in Pretoria on Saturday.
The Bulls host the Sharks in round 7 of the Vodacom URC at Loftus Versfeld, after Jake White’s charges climbed to third on the standings with victory against Connacht last week, while the Durbanites beat the Dragons at Kings Park for their first win of the season.
Dyantyi comes in for Werner Kok, who has a slight hamstring niggle, on the right wing. The rest of the matchday squad remains unchanged.

After the return of the World Cup-winning Springboks last week, the Sharks put in their most decisive performance of the URC, and there was little evidence that the Boks were nursing any ill-effects following their exploits in France.
Eben Etzebeth, Grant Williams and Makazole Mapimpi crossed the whitewash as the Sharks ran in 10 tries for a 69-14 result that snapped a six-match slump.
Sharks – 15 Aphelele Fassi, 14 Aphiwe Dyantyi, 13 Lukhanyo Am (c), 12 Francois Venter, 11 Makazole Mapimpi, 10 Curwin Bosch, 9 Jaden Hendrikse, 8 Sikhumbuzo Notshe, 7 Phepsi Buthelezi, 6 James Venter, 5 Emile van Heerden, 4 Eben Etzebeth, 3 Coenie Oosthuizen, 2 Fez Mbatha, 1 Ntuthuko Mchunu.
