Former Investec Stormer leads Sharks

PUBLISHED: February 22, 2005

The Sharks team to take on the Investec Stormers in Week One of the Vodacom Super 12 has been announced by Sharks coach Kevin Putt, with former Stormers player Jaco Gouws to lead the team.

“The shape of the team that will take the field against the Stormers is very much based on the continuity of pre-season performances. Jaco Gouws will be the acting captain, while John Smit is coming back into full fitness. John will however be on the bench which gives us a degree of confidence in leadership support as well as bench depth,” said Putt.
