Lambie set for Crusaders clash

6:47 am on 24 July 2014

The Sharks first-five Pat Lambie is hoping to continue his comeback with more game time in Saturday's Super Rugby semi-final against the Crusaders after months of injury woes.

The Springbok playmaker made his first appearance in four months, after tearing his bicep, as a substitute last weekend as the Sharks came from behind to beat the Highlanders 31-27 in Durban to book a place in the last four of the competition.

Lambie played only 12 minutes against the Highlanders but earned praise from coach Jake White for providing a steadying influence at a crucial point in the game.
