Sharks coach John Plumtree has named his Super Rugby team to face the Bulls this weekend with two debutants in Dale Chadwick and Paul Jordaan.

The match will also be the first official Sharks games for Tim Whitehead and Riaan Viljoen.

Chadwick (pictured) has been named at loosehead prop after a strong season at Currie Cup level and Paul Jordaan on the bench.

Whitehead and Viljoen will play alongside JP Pietersen at outside centre, with Lwazi Mvovo on one wing and Louis Ludik on the other while Frederic Michalak and Patrick Lambie make up the halfback pairing.

"We're looking forward to the season," said coach John Plumtree on the Sharks site.

"It comes to a point when all the work is done and the players can look forward to a game at the highest level.

"The mood at training is mirroring that, the boys are a bit grumpy and now they just want to get out there and play. We're all looking forward to it."
