Discipline is going to be key when the Sharks clash with the Bulls in the Carling Currie Cup final at Loftus Versfeld in Pretoria on Saturday (15h00).
This is the view of Sharks coach Sean Everitt as he is going to lead his boys against coach Jake White’s side.
“Discipline is key because the ball flies at Loftus. We are gonna look at discipline. The Lions gave away 20 penalties against the Bulls last week and suffered because of that,” Everitt said.
“It’s a challenge for any team that goes to play at Loftus. I think the weather gods are in our favour, it’s gonna be a cool day in Pretoria.”
Everitt is going to start with Jaden Hendricks at scrumhalf and has benched Sanele Nohamba, who started against Western Province at Newlands, Cape Town, last week.
“Jaden was supposed to start last week. Unfortunately, due to a stomach ailment he couldn’t train. We just feel that Jaden is on top of his game. Jaden is a good decision maker. His main attribute is how he manages the game. He deserves the start,’ Everitt said.
“Sanele will bring energy from the bench. We look at Sanele bringing tempo to the game. He has come up nicely as far as maturity is concerned.”
