Sharks Director of Rugby Jake White has again opted for consistency, naming an unchanged starting XV to face the Lions in Johannesburg on Saturday.

The Round Nine encounter, which marks the 100th Super Rugby appearance by veteran Springbok Odwa Ndungane in Sharks colours, sees the return from injury of Sevens Bok Paul Jordaan.

Replacements: 16 Kyle Cooper, 17 Dale Chadwick, 18 Lourens Adriaanse, 19 Etienne Oosthuizen, 20 Keegan Daniel, 21 Stefan Ungerer, 22 Paul Jordaan, 23 SP Marais.
