Sharksworld’s Currie Cup Team of the week is brought to you by LaLuxe B&B -
Relax in the Luxury of LaLuxe.
Another interesting weekend of rugby produced victories for the the Bulls and the Lions in two important matches this weekend and the Cheetahs extended their winning record to two in a row to stay in this years closely fought battle on the log.
Our team of the week reflects more of the winning teams this week, the Lions and the Bulls, with 5 players each, the Cheetahs with 2 and the rest of the numbers are made up of one player of each of the other teams.
15. Louis Ludik
Another stand out performance. He seems to be everywhere on the field and can’t seem to set a foot wrong.
14. Akona Ndungane
It just goes to show that it is not just speed that makes a great winger. He and his twin brother were the stand out wingers this week.
13. Johann Sadie
He’s a good player who has been hampered by injuries and lack of opportunities, but he certainly made the most of his first opportunity in this year’s Currie Cup to show his union what they will be missing when he leaves.
12. Butch James
He is still a quality player and seems to be enjoying his rugby.
11. Clayton Blommetjies
One of the great things of this year’s Currie Cup is the new talent that are being unveiled.
10. Elton Jantjies
Jantjies relished the game time after carrying tackle bags for the Boks, with this performance he has again showed why he deserves a shot in the green and gold.
9. Sarel Pretorius
Busy, busy, busy … Sarel was all over the field. The Cheetahs must love to have him back, he has a huge impact on how the play.
8. Duane Vermeulen
Back after an injury Duane is still getting back to his best, but his physical presence and experience will be important for WP in this year’s Currie Cup.
7. CJ Stander
He hasn’t had a bad game since the first time he was introduced by the Bulls in Super Rugby this year, another huge talent that will be lost to Europe.
6. Cobus Grobbelaar
He has a never say die attitude and he may not be this Lions teams captain any more, but he still leads by example.
5. Franco van der Merwe
Another committed player, putting everything into every hit and every carry.
4. Ligtoring Landman
He is a big ball carrying lock and has been great in this year’s Currie Cup so far.
3. Marcel van der Merwe
He’s getting some game time and doing a good job of getting noticed for all the right reasons.
2. Willie Wepener
He’s been putting in strong performances from the bench for the Bulls in Super Rugby and has gone on to deliver great 80 minute rugby in the Currie Cup.
1. JC Janse van Rensburg
He’s not a flashy loose head as so many of them are today, but he certainly is an effective one and is doing all the right things in the Lions tight five.
