Stefan Terblanche is on the brink of becoming the first player to play 200 games for the Natal Rugby Union, after playing 112 Super Rugby matches and 87 Currie Cup matches in his career so far.
The legend will lead the team out, whether he is captain on the day or not, and take the field in his 200th game in the Black and White. It is quite an achievement and we salute you Stefan!
Apart from this record for the Sharks, he has the personal satisfaction of playing 400 first class matches, from his start for Boland in 1994 to his current 2011 contract with the Sharks, with 37 Test matched under his belt, 87 matches for Ospreys and a sprinkling of Under 21, Midweek Bok games and even three appearances for the Barbarians.
The top five in first class appearances in South Africa stands as follows:
1.Stefan Terblance – 400
2.Ollie le Roux – 357
3.Albert van den Berg – 338
4.Victor Matfield – 337
5.John Smit – 323
We would like to wish Stefan all the best for the match on Saturday, as well as for the rest of the season as he stretches that record to a point where one has to wonder if someone will ever catch him.Tweet
