The Sharks, who are hugely being tipped to defend their title, clash with the Griquas on Saturday afternoon in their first match of the Absa Curie Cup at GWK Park in Kimberly and will use the opportunity to show off their ‘fairer’ side by showing appreciation to the ladies.
“With Saturday being Women’s Day and in support of this special day, each member of the Cell C Sharks will have the name of the most significant female in their lives displayed on the back of their respective jerseys,” said the club.
Meanwhile, new captain Tera Mtembu will lead his troops for the first time and will be hoping to claim the Griquas scalp. He is part of the star studded starting XI that was named yesterday by head coach Brad Macleod-Henderson.
Some of the players who have also been drafted into the team include Zimbabwean born Tonderai Chavanga, Sbura Sithole, Odwa Ndungane, SP Marais, Kyle Cooper and Jacques Botes.
“We have had a good weeks training, there has been great energy, a lot of young guys, everyone looking forward to playing, especially those who haven’t played as much rugby as they would have liked this year so it’s a great opportunity and everyone is very excited,” testified Macleod.
