Sharks in recovery mode before Super Rugby final

3:46 pm on 4 August 2012

The Sharks are discounting the travel factor as a problem for them heading into tonight's Super Rugby final against the Chiefs in Hamilton.

They qualified 6th for the play-offs but have knocked off the Queensland Reds and Stormers to reach the final,

The Durban-based side has had to fly across the Indian Ocean 3 times in the last fortnight as they progressed through the play-offs.

The Sharks spent the last week in Sydney and coach John Plumtree says the focus has been on getting players' bodies right.....

Plumtree says the Chiefs have attacked very well during the competition and so closing down their space will be important....

Kick-off at 7:35.
