I heard it's because Bismarck's fat and lazy and not very good.

Bismarck was injured after the Bulls game and hasn't trained much - that's why he's on the bench.

Sharks team starting to look really good with the returning players. I think giving Burden a run is a good move - he hasn't had meaningful game time in 6-7 weeks, whereas Bismarck played all 3 tests vs England and had a tough game against the Bulls last week. Burden has looked good when he's played, so the Sharks won't give much away, plus he's speedy in the loose! Brussouw will have his work cut out with the Sharks loose trio plus Burden in the loose;-)
Hoping for a good, entertaining game and a 5 pointer for the Sharks!

Go Sharks, such un exiting team and club

Aussie conference needs all the help it can get...maybe just one Aussie side in the final 6?

I think it's a slick move by Plumtree. Imagine how you would feel if you were a tired Cheetah, and at the 50 or 60 minute mark on comes jean Deysel (or Pieter Steph du toit), Willem Alberts and Bismark. Personally, I would probably sh*t enough bricks to build a house.

@wallaroo, agreed. especially when their playoff hopes are riding on this match. or maybe the Sharks are confident enough the Waratahs will beat the Reds and theyre saving Du Plessis for the playoffs..i dunno, i cannot think of any other reason...

This should be five points anyway, Wallaroo. The Sharks are the in form team and if only Steyn could spit out the warthog he ate....

Interesting having the worlds best hooker on the bench against their bogey team. All the better for the Aussie conference.
