Sharksworld’s Currie Cup Team of the week is brought to you by LaLuxe B&B -
Relax in the Luxury of LaLuxe.
In week 2 the Sharks stand alone as the only unbeaten team, bar Griquas stands on a won one, lost one record .
After week 1 was dominated by Lions players (they had one more than the Sharks with 6), week 2 sees 8 Sharks players in our team restoring the natural balance of Sharksworld. This week the Lions get 3, then it’s the Cheetahs with 2 and the Bulls and Griquas each with 1.
15. Louis Ludik
He picked up where he left off in Super Rugby. At some point his form has to be recognised.
14. Odwa Ndungane
You can’t scoff at the value experience brings to a team. Odwa uses that experience especially well.
13. Paul Jordaan
If he can get a few more 80 minute games under his belt he’ll make a real call for Bok inclusion come the Australasian tour.
12. Meyer Bosman
Unwavering aiming at the posts from everywhere on the field and a solid pillar the Sharks build their backline around.
11. Rocco Jansen
In the second half he faded a little with his team’s decision to defend their lead, but he was prominent in building their lead in the first.
10. Riaan Viljoen
He may not be the most reliable pick at fly half, but his first two performances at 10 will improve his critics confidence in his abilities in this position.
9. Sarel Pretorius
He and Charl McLeod were the most prominent scrummies over the weekend, both made a few too many errors, Pretorius’ good just overshadowing his bad a little more than Charl.
8. CJ Stander
By far the best loosie this weekend and looking at the way he’s been playing in his last few outings, he may have been selected above another Bull in the Bok squad had he not decided to leave for Europe.
7. Jean Deysel
At one stage he just ran over his defenders. He’s enjoying the game time he’s getting.
6. Frans Viljoen
He worked hard in this game, carrying, cleaning and tackling.
5. Anton Bresler
After a short one week break, Anton seems ready for more work. He was not as prominent as he was in the latter part of Super Rugby, but popped up all around the park more than enough.
4. Andries Ferreira
With picks at lock being pretty scarce for South Africa, this was a very good time for Ferreira to deliver a great performance. At only 22 years old he can only go up from here.
3. Jacobie Adriaanse
Adriaanse had Chadwicks number, especially in the first half the Sharks had no answer to the massive scrumming from the Lions.
2. Craig Burden
The set pieces weren’t great, but since set pieces are more of a team effort, we’ll give this one to Craig based on his individual play. Congratulations on the call up BTW!
1. JC Janse van Rensburg
Another very strong performance in the scrums by the captain. It seems the responsibility of leading his team has been good for him.
