Interesting team of the week this week, which has seen another great response from both authors and bloggers.

There are a few players that stay put in their positions, and some that have moved to the right position (read Lambie). Juan de Jongh, Lwazi Mvovo, Pat Lambie and Willem Alberts all recoded shut outs this week, with them being in every single submitted team.

At loosehead prop we had a three-way tie, with no way of separating them in an unbiased way, I gave them all three the position.

No surprises that the Sharks representation shot up dramatically.

Team of the week:

15. Jaco Taute (Lions)
– Close second Conrad Jantjes

14. Gerhard van den Heever (Bulls)
– Close second Gio Aplon

13. Juan de Jongh (WP)
– No other outside centre was nominated

12. Doppies la Grange (Lions)
– Close second Walter Venter

(Five different inside centres were nominated, with Bosch, Strauss and Watermeyer all in the mix)

11. Lwazi Mvovo (Sharks)
– No other wing was nominated

10. Pat Lambie (Sharks)
– No other flyhalf was nominated

9. Charl McLeod (Sharks)
– Close second Michael Bondesio

8. Willem Alberts (Sharks)
– No other eighthman was nominated

7. Francois Louw (WP)
– Close second Dewald Potgieter

6. Keegan Daniel (Sharks)
– Close second Pieter Louw

5. Anton van Zyl (WP)
– Close second Al Hargreaves

4. Steven Sykes (Sharks)
– Close second Flip van der Merwe

3. Jannie du Plessis (Sharks)
– Close second Brock Harris

2. Craig Burden (Sharks)
– Close second Adriaan Strauss

1. Beast Mtawarira (Sharks)/Coenie Oosthuizen (Cheetahs)/Jaco Engels(Bulls)

Sharks – 9
WP – 3
Cheetahs – 1
Bulls – 2
Lions – 2

  • I think Jovan Bowles (Leo) was great and Deon Stoltz (Leo) also deserves a mention.

  • I know Riaan Viljoen and Bjorn Basson were both on the EOYT but were they ever capped?? If not I would put them at 15 and 14 in the rugby365 team.
    And Willem Alberts needs to be there somewhere at 7 or preferably at 8

  • @Pokkel (Comment 8) : I think the Rugby365 team is based on the entire Cuttie Cup so far, seeing as they have Lambie at 12 and not at 10 after this last weekend..

    Will investigate..

  • @molly (Comment 2) :

    I second that. he scored the try but it WAS a team try.

    Here is my comment from the match thread
    Griquas get to 3m out from the WP Line only to lose the ball in the ruck and WP are in the Griquas goal area to score a try 30seconds later.
