Three of the four rugby playing Perkins brothers were included in the Falcons team to meet the Sharks in a Currie Cup fixture in Durban on Friday night.

Blonde flanker Warren Perkins starts on the side of the scrum with elder brother Reg and younger brother Jeffrey on the bench.

Jeffrey gets his first opportunity to show his talents after Riaan Smit’s foot injury and is on standby should fullback Jacques Schutte fail a fitness test.

Injuries to Smit and Falcons flanker Uwe Sauer have forced Rudy Joubert to change his side that played some exciting rugby against the Lions last weekend.

Joubert simply had to include Dewald Pretorius after his strong showing against the Lions and the big policeman starts on the right wing.

Smit’s place at flyhalf goes to Len Olivier, who also impressed at Ellis Park, while Joubert changed the loose-forward combination.

Warren Perkins and Reg Muller are the new flankers with Emile Verster dropping down to the bench.

Falcons team: Jacques Schutte; Dewald Pretorius, Rouan Cloete, Hanno Coetzee C, Ernie Kruger; Len Olivier, Gerrie Odendaal; Sean Plaatjies; Reg Muller, Warren Perkins, Marius Coetzer, Wouter Moore, Nico Pretorius, Rayno Barnes, Gavin Whittingham.

Reserves: Frik Venter, Rassie van Vuuren, Reg Perkins, Emile Verster, Bolla Adams, Jeff Perkins, Mpho Matsaung.

  • @robdylan (Comment 13) :
    Rudi Joubert is the main factor.
    Then we all must thank them for in 1970 as Eastern Transvaal broke the left arm of Colin Meads, the thug.
    Then again they are a little union striving to survive around the Golden Lions (former Transvaal RU) and I think it’s not easy.
    Fourth and last I have been having sympathy for all Transvalers bar of course those from Pretoria…
    ciao :roll:

    as for the stats I sent you today you can understand Valke are a very good attacking unit but have not a solid defence…
