The victory over the Harlequins came at a heavy price with a number of players being forced to leave the field of play. John Yapp, Bradley Davies, Gareth Thomas and Paul Tito all picked up injuries during the match and will miss out on the game against the Sharks. Xavier Rush is also suffering with flu this week and is not available for selection for the match.
On a positive note, Gethin Jenkins returns to rugby action for the first time since injuring his shoulder during the second test match between the Lions and South Africa, and is handed the Captain's armband.
