The Sharks have included Springbok World Cup winning wing Sbu Nkosi in their starting line-up for Saturday's Super Rugby Unlocked clash against the Bulls at Loftus.

Nkosi will replace JP Pietersen.

Hooker Kerron van Vuuren and loose-forward Henco Venter have also both been passed fit to play, but have been named to come off the bench in their first matches since the suspension of Super Rugby.

Also named on the bench is Yaw Penxe, who was last saw action in the Springbok Green v Gold match.

The 23-year-old, who hails from Queenstown in the Eastern Cape, came to prominence for the Southern Kings before starring in the Green team's 25-9 victory over the Golds early in October and has come to Durban on loan.

Kick-off on Saturday is at 19:00.
