The Cell C Sharks are set to take on the British Irish Lions on Wednesday evening in Johannesburg. The long awaited international competition would serve as incredible game time. It also provides an opportunity for players to showcase their skills against the international side “we have been together for quite some time so we are looking forward to the challenge,” said Head Coach Sean Everitt.
“We have to get the fundamentals right otherwise we will be punished on the day.”
In terms of the tour, the Management team is proud with the performance of Aphelele Fassi in the Springbok match against Georgia and are looking forward to seeing his performance.
“The chief goal is that we go into this game well prepared and for the players to understand what is coming their way. Not many of our players have international experience and that includes Super Rugby, so yes, this is a big challenge,” said Everitt.
