The Springbok winger, Rosko Specman, is set to make a return the Toyota Cheetahs on Saturday when they tackle the Sharks in Bloemfontein.

Specman missed out during last week’s 35-26 win against the Lions due to his wedding in Cape Town.

The Blitzbok stalwart is set to start in the game against the Sharks, while there was some concern over Dan Kasende this morning after taking a knock to his knee during training.

Should Kasende not be declared fit for the game, Duncan Saal, could earn another start. Last week Saal scored a try against the Lions in what was his first game back after an eight-month injury layoff.

Specman told OFM Sport that the Sharks will test their back three this week.

“It's a massive one”, said the x-factor player.

“Playing at home again I think that the crowed will come out and show their support. The field is looking great.

“What a way for me to come back - especially against opposition like the Sharks.

“They are very good side and they are tactical. They will really test the back-three with high-balls and even with the wide breakdowns.

“They like to make sure that they counter in that phase of play.”

The Cheetahs coach, Hawies Fourie, will name his team for the game on Friday morning.

Saturday’s match at the Toyota Stadium kicks off at 14:30.
