The match at Loftus kicks off at 18h15 and will be broadcast live on SuperSport.

With the halfway stage of the competition looming, Cell C Sharks head coach Sean Everitt has been able to field almost identical teams each week, with Hendrikse’s inclusion for Grant Williams the only change to the starting line-up thus far in the PRO14 Rainbow Cup SA.

Hendrikse's return to the starting side means Williams gets a break and Sanele Nohamba will play off the bench.

With two bonus point victories so far – against the DHL Stormers and the Emirates Lions – the Cell C Sharks lead the standings, and they will want to keep that record in tact in Pretoria on Saturday.

“With the freedom we’re given to play, decision-making becomes crucially important,” said Cell C Sharks flyhalf Curwin Bosch.

“That’s knowing when to run and when to kick and with all the hard work put in with that in mind, hopefully we can put in the perfect performance this weekend.”

Cell C Sharks: 15 Aphelele Fassi, 14 Sbu Nkosi, 13 Lukhanyo Am (captain), 12 Jeremy Ward, 11 Yaw Penxe, 10 Curwin Bosch, 9 Jaden Hendrikse, 8 Sikhumbuzo Notshe, 7 Henco Venter, 6 Siya Kolisi, 5 Reniel Hugo, 4 Ruben van Heerden, 3 Thomas du Toit, 2 Fez Mbatha, 1 Ox Nche.
