SuperRugby reports that when Van Zyl leads the Kavaliers onto the field against the Lions in a Currie Cup match at Wellington on Saturday, it will be his 140th appearence for the Kavaliers.
This will equal Coetzee’s seven year record. Coetzee tops the log with a 140 matches for the Kavaliers. He was a flank forward and played between 1995 and 2001 for the Wellington-based side.
