Sharks braced for massive physical battle against Bulls -Schoeman

Flank Juan Schoeman says the Sharks are to ready to front up to the Bulls tomorrow afternoon. The Durban side got the better of Pote Human’s side in a pre-season friendly last month, but with the competition heading into its fourth round, this weekend’s clash will be a completely different challenge. Schoeman expects a huge difference in physicality and implored his side to step up their intensity. The Sharks were brought down to earth last weekend after they were beaten by the Stormers in their own backyard. Schoeman says it was a defeat that hurt the team and the forward pack in particular. He believes a big South African derby presents the perfect opportunity for them to bounce back. The two teams were involved in a thrilling contest at Loftus last year which the Bulls won by a 39-33 score-line. Sharks captain, Louis Schreuder who will earn his 100th cap this weekend expects another tight encounter and says there is no need for extra-motivation.
