The Reds, chasing their first win in South Africa since 2015, will be up against a Sharks team desperate to atone for last week’s capitulation (17-51 loss) to the Jaguares.
It would be a monumental achievement for the Reds, considering April 2004 was the last time the Brisbane-based franchise won in Durban.
Despite last week’s disaster, the Sharks have won 21 of their last 26 home games against Australian opposition.
“After last week’s result, they’ll be hungry and looking to put in a big performance in front of their home fans,” Reds coach Brad Thorn said of the Sharks.
