The Sharks will be looking to move back ahead of the Bulls on the log and close the gap to fifth-placed Edinburgh.

Zebre Parma, however, come off a heavy 55-7 defeat against the Stormers last week and have yet to win a match this season, which will fuel their motivation to try to create an upset in the humidity of Durban.

The Sharks team for Saturday’s match show a number of rotational changes from the side that beat Scarlets last week, with injured Springbok prop Ox Nché replaced by Ntuthuko Mchunu in the front row.

Sharks head coach Sean Everitt has also made two changes to the backline, with Ben Tapuai named at outside centre in place of Jeremy Ward, and Grant Williams replacing Jaden Hendrikse at scrumhalf.

“In this competition, no-one can be taken lightly – we saw that when the Scarlets put 35 points over Glasgow, who are in the top four of the competition,” said Everitt.

“Zebre are an unpredictable side that kick the ball really well, and although they haven’t done that well on the log, they gave the Bulls a good go for the first 40 minutes before the Bulls’ power game dominated them.

“But our focus is on our own performance at the moment, taking it week by week and we know that we need to get better and put in a better performance as a whole for 80 minutes.”
