The Sharks have had to postpone naming their match-23 to face Griquas in Kimberley on Friday, following delays in their Covid-19 test results.
Head coach Sean Everitt was meant to announce the team at 11:00 on Wednesday but has had to hold the announcement back for another day to Thursday morning.
The Sharks are third on the Super Rugby Unlocked log, behind the Bulls (19 points) and tied with the second placed Stormers (13 points). They are chasing a bonus-point win in Kimberley to bring themselves to within a point of the Bulls, who enjoy a bye this week.
The Sharks said in a media statement:
“With reference to today’s planned team release and press conference, please be advised that these announcements will be postponed until tomorrow (Thursday). 
“As per the Covid-19 protocol, the team gets tested every week and due to a delay with receiving these results we are unable to release a team today.
“The team will be released at 08:30 tomorrow with the press conference scheduled for 10:30.”
