Super Rugby

Sharks coach Robert du Preez has had to reshuffle his backline for Saturday’s big Super Rugby clash against the Jaguares in Durban following an injury to Garth April.

That has resulted in flyhalf kingpin Bosch – who has been in outstanding form in the No 10 this season – shifting to the fullback spot, a position in which he is also comfortable.

Bosch’s move sees another youngster in Inny Radebe, who featured in the Currie Cup last year, brought in off the bench to make his first Super Rugby start.

Saturday’s game kicks off at 3.05pm at Kings Park, with the Sharks looking to bounce back after going down to the Lions last weekend.
