Sharks ready for Saracens test
The Cell C Sharks arrived in London on Thursday morning, and on the eve of Saturday's Sanlam Private Investments Shield match against Saracens, captain Bismark du Plessis said he is looking forward to the weekend's game.
“We’re now into our third week of preseason and training has been pretty tough so far" revealed the star hooker.
"I’m really looking forward to a good game at the weekend. We haven’t played on an artificial surface before, so that’s something new to us so as a team we’re all looking forward to getting out there and playing".
Emerging Springbok lock forward Pieter-Steph du-Toit will also be involved at the weekend, the Sharks forward said; "Saturday is going to be a great game against Saracens. It’s a brand new stadium and somewhere we’ve never played at before so I’m really looking forward to it. We may make a few mistakes on the field this Saturday; it’s our first time playing together this season against a team that is half way through theirs. I think it’s going to be quite the tester for us".
