The struggling Griquas welcome the Sharks to Tafel Lager Park for a crucial Super Rugby Unlocked fixture. The hosts have yet to win in four matches while the Sharks need a bonus point victory if they are to stay in touch with the Bulls.

Griquas Form


Griquas have suffered defeat in their opening four Super Rugby Unlocked matches and sit bottom of the table.

First Griquas lost 30-23 at the Bulls before going down 27-21 at home to the Pumas. That was followed by a 61-31 away loss to the Lions. 

Last week Griquas went down 39-6 on home soil to the Stormers. They were outplayed from the first to the last minute and only poor finishing from the visitors ensured the score wasn’t bigger.

Historically Griquas are strong at home but this season, without a home crowd, they have struggled to put any team under pressure.

Griquas Team News


Griquas have no injury concerns heading into this match. It is likely that George Whitehead will get a start at fly-half after spending last week on the bench.

Sharks Form


The Sharks began their Super Rugby Unlocked campaign with a scratchy 19-16 win over the Lions. That victory was followed by a humiliating 41-14 loss away to the Bulls. 

The Durban-based franchise bounced back to beat the Pumas 42-19 the following week. Their confidence grew after that and they took advantage of a very rusty Cheetahs outfit last week to win 19-13 on home soil.

That result puts the Sharks well within reach of the Bulls at the top of the table but they’ll need the Pretoria side to slip up over the next two weeks.

Sharks Team News


The Sharks are likely to stick with the same starting line-up from last week unless there are late injuries.

Griquas vs Sharks Head to Head


The Sharks have won four of their last five matches against the Griquas in all competitions. The last time they met was in the 2019 Currie Cup where the Griquas ran out 37-13 winners in Durban.

Griquas vs Sharks Match Up


Griquas will try to force the match to be played at as slow a pace as they can muster. Set pieces will be crucial for the hosts but they will need to manage the breakdown a lot better than last weekend. The Sharks have a very mobile loose-trio so Griquas will have to guard against turnover possession.
