Ton up for Adi!

Adrian Jacobs will win his 100th Super Rugby cap if (or rather when) he takes the field for the Sharks this weekend. The popular Springbok centre has been named on the bench for the crunch opener against the Cheetahs.

Adi’s 99 caps have been for three teams; he’s represented the Cats 4 time, the Bulls on 21 occasion and the Sharks for the bulk of his Super Rugby career (74 times and counting) . What is important, though, is to take a few minutes to give some love to one of our most loyal and all-round favourite Sharks as he reaches a major career milestone.

All the talk this week has been about Fourie du Preez being the first South African back to reach the magical 100 cap figure. What the media has neglected to mention is that Adi is odds on to beat him to that record, by the narrowest of margins!

Congrats, Adrian Abraham Jacobs, you Sharks legend! Go show us what you can do and score a try against the Cheetahs to mark the occasion.

  • You all forgot that Stefan Terblanche was the first backline player to make 100 caps – if I am correct he’ll be playing his 106th game this weekend.

    So its Stefan, then Adi and THEN onlu Fourie….

    WELL DONE ADI!!! 😀

  • Plum must put Adi on. Fourie du Preez thought he would be the first South African backline player to get a super rugby ton. Lets hope Plum rather gives it to Adi. The first up yours from the Sharks to the Bulls of the season.

  • @try time (Comment 13) : Yep – give adi the opportunity. Personally,imho, these milestones tend to jinx players (Percy, JS – not Vic M, though)so I’d rather let AJ have the honour 😉

  • ok, ok…. I apologise unreservedly to Uncle Stefan then.

    Still a great milestone for Adi, as well as for the Sharks, that we’ll have the first 2 Super Rugby centurion backs.
