ONE of the most potent halfback combinations of the 90’s may be back in business when the Natal Sharks take on Newport at Kings Park on Saturday. Henry Honiball and Kevin Putt may be reunited as the halfback pair for the Sharks in the Gary Teichmann Tribute match. Flyhalf Honiball is a definite starter, while negotiations with Putt are said to be at an advanced stage. Former Springbok centre Jeremy Thomson may also play, and is listed as a bench replacement in the College Rovers side that will take play Newport in a warm-up match Saturday afternoon. The Newport side will include star players like former Springbok skipper Teichmann, Shane Howarth, Franco Smith and Andy Marinos.
