Sharks fullback Patrick Lambie will wear the number 15 jersey for the South African under 20 side when they kick-off their IRB Junior World Championship campaign against Tonga on Saturday.

Coach Eric Sauls has named a strong team, featuring two other players with Super 14 experience in wing Wandile Mjekevu and centre Jaco Taute, both of whom played for the Lions this year. Lock Kene Okafor and hooker Monde Hadebe are the other Sharks representatives in the starting lineup, while Peet Marais will provide second row cover from the bench.

The team will be captained by Bulls number 8 CJ Stander, who along with Okafor and winger Sampie Mastriet are survivors from last year’s tournament in Japan.

SA Under-20 – Patrick Lambie, Sampie Mastriet, Jaco Taute, Francois Venter, Wandile Mjekevu, Elton Jantjies, Louis Schreuder, CJ Stander (c), Fanie van der Walt, Siya Kolisi, Sebastian de Chaves, Kene Okafor, Marcel van der Merwe, Monde Hadebe, Brummer Badenhorst.

Reserves: Francois du Toit, Ruan Dreyer, Peet Marais, Mlungisi Bali, Branco du Preez, Adri Jacobs, Nico Scheepers.

  • @Ice (Comment 8) : I think everyone agrees that Lambie is a great 15 BUT he definitely has the skill set to be a 10 and more importantly he seems to have the temperament to play at 10.

  • @lostfish (Comment 13) : can you elaborate? which set of skills and what temperament?

  • Comment 14, posted at 04.06.10 12:03:39 by rekinek Reply
  • @lostfish (Comment 13) : I am a bit dissapointed in his communication skills OFF the field…asked him for an interview a few weeks back, and he is yet to give me an answer…bit dissapointing that he could not even reply… 🙄

    Maybe he thinks I am a stalker…I mean, a woman, asking for a rugby interview??? Is it still the ages where men watch rugby and woman fetches the beers?! 😈

  • @Ice (Comment 15) : nowadays beer fetchers is a specialised position usually performed by children. 😉

  • @rekinek (Comment 14) : He can kick, he can pass, he is cool under pressure as can be seen when he debuted. He also isn’t afraid to put his body on the line, he can tackle etc etc. Oh and did you see him under the highball??

  • @Ice (Comment 15) : I think Pat doesn’t know which end is up at the moment… I also asked him something to which he has yet to reply.

    He doesn’t check facebook very often either.

  • @lostfish (Comment 17) : with kockott playing scrummie, any potential Sharks pivot needs to be able to collect a high ball 🙂

  • @lostfish (Comment 17) : makes him a perfect fullback, hey. But not sure whether you can so easily swop fullbacks and flyhalfs.

  • Comment 20, posted at 04.06.10 12:21:54 by rekinek Reply
  • @robdylan (Comment 19) : :mrgreen: and a low ball , skew ball, slow ball and unpredictable ball or most likely no ball.

  • Comment 21, posted at 04.06.10 12:23:24 by rekinek Reply
  • @Ice (Comment 15) : perhaps he still needs to come back down to earth after the last few months.

    The ages have changed, my hubby brings me beers / juice / biltong when I am watching the rugby 😉

  • @ruggabugga (Comment 23) : yes, I have. I have commented on it on yesterday’s thread, but am not planning on putting up an article because there are enough tabloid sites out there… we’re not ones to gloat about a player’s personal problems.

  • @lostfish (Comment 22) : are you also a girl? I didn’t know that (or did I? hard to keep track)

    Tell me something, ladies… what is it that makes Sharksworld so attractive to the fairer sex?

  • Comment 26, posted at 04.06.10 12:43:57 by robdylan Reply
  • @robdylan (Comment 26) :maybe because all the attractive ladies shout for the Sharks?? 😆

    Did I just say that???? Hehehe

  • @robdylan (Comment 26) : yup another girl shark 😉

    I like the vibe on the site, it is easy to have a debate without it getting UGLY like on another site whose name I won’t mention. Plus the articles are objective rather than tabloid style journalism.

  • @lostfish (Comment 28) : thanks – I’ll take both of those compliments 🙂 We really do work very hard here to maintain a friendly vibe and while some might argue that the writing occasionally verges on the sensational, we try to keep it reasonable.

    and here I thought it was my pretty face 🙂
