Sharks coach John Plumtree retained the combination that started their campaign with back-to-back Super Rugby wins over the Cheetahs and Stormers.
The 2012 beaten finalists head to Port Elizabeth this week to take on the tournament newcomers, the Southern Kings.
While there is a temptation to rotate, given the length of the competition, Plumtree admitted he prefers continuity at this stage.
"We're only at round three, there are two more games after the Kings before we have a bye and we'll then have an opportunity to freshen everyone up which will be good," told the Sharks website.
Plumtree said his team will look to produce a more expansive game against the Kings, following the dour arm-wrestle in Durban last week that produced a 12-6 win over the Stormers.
"Hopefully we'll get better, players will make good decisions and we'll maintain ball for long periods of time," Plumtree said.
"That will give guys like JP Pietersen, Lwazi Mvovo and the rest of our backs more ball, more fast ball.
"That's certainly what Pat Lambie wants, because it's obviously not ideal for him to get slow ball, it makes it pretty hard to run off, we just have to make sure we will get better."
