Cell C Sharks vs. Ulster

Date: Saturday, 25th February 2023
Time:  14h00
Venue: Hollywoodbets Kings Park, Durban
Referee: Sam Grove-White
Assistant Refs: Cwengile Jadezweni, Griffin Colby
TMO: Andrew McMenemy

The Cell C Sharks team to meet Ulster in their rescheduled round six Vodacom United Rugby Championship match at Hollywoodbets Kings Park on Saturday shows minimal changes to the side that defeated the Emirates Lions last weekend.

The team is building a nice head of steam as the tournament pool stages wind down and the momentum they have taken out of their 29-7, bonus point victory over the Lions means they go into this game with confidence.

Keeping team selection intact as much as possible, Cell C Sharks Director of Rugby Neil Powell has made just three changes to last week’s side.

There are two new starters in the pack and one in the backline, with Dylan Richardson and Vincent Tshituka, the flanks who played a starring role off the bench last week, getting the nod in the starting line-up, replacing James Venter and Henco Venter.

There is further good news on the return-from-injury status where Boeta Chamberlain has recovered from the injury he sustained against Union Bordeaux Bègles in their Heineken Champions Cup clash in mid-January.

Chamberlain, the current Cell C Sharks top-scorer in this year’s competition (with 66 points) replaces the injured Aphelele Fassi at fullback.
