Lwazi Mvovo will be taking over the number 11 jersey from Bryan Banana this Saturday. Whilst Mvovo shows great respect for Habana and is one of his hero’s, a solid showing against the Scots and the Poms, could mean a more permanent stake in this roll – especially considering Habana’s current form.
George North was the last person who got Habana’s jersey – and with scoring 2 tries, could not have asked for a greater memento! (Especially if an era is ending)
Mvovo said that if the youngsters are given a chance to play, they will play there hearts out. “George North is only eighteen and has scored two tries. Look at what pat Lambie has accomplished and Australia is also not shy to give the youngsters a chance”
Mvovs will be making his debut in the Green and Gold at the age of 24. He only started playing rugby at the age of 17 in the Eastern Cape. He played for border in the Under 19’s just before he was taken up in the Sharks Academy.
They worked on this raw talent and the finishing product has scored 12 tries for the Sharks in 16 Currie Cup games in 2010.
Mvovs showed pure power in his running towards the try line, although he weighs just over 90kg! Last year he managed to catch O’ Drsicoll from behind. Afterwards O’ Driscoll shook his hand and wished him well for the future.
“It’s been a wonderful year for me and here I am on tour. I am very lucky to be here and am just looking forward to play for my country. I will play my heart out!”
Mvovo, we wish you well in the Green and Gold and maybe starting a new era would not be such a bad thing!Tweet
