Sharksworld’s Currie Cup Team of the week is brought to you by LaLuxe B&B

Relax in the Luxury of LaLuxe.

The Griquas managed their first victory of the season, the rest of the teams, aside from the Sharks, are sitting on a 50% win record. The Sharks snatched their third victory from the Cheetahs and again pushed themselves ahead of the field as the only team with only one game lost, but it was Western Province who impressed the most last week, with their massive victory against the Bulls.

Our numbers are almost completely evenly spread across the winning teams, 5 for WP and the Griquas each and 4 for the Sharks, with the Lions taking one.

15. Willie le Roux

Everyone is talking about Willie le Roux. His team definitely used him in the Flyhalf channel even more this week and it helped a great deal in sealing their first victory.

14. Odwa Ndungane

Well whatever he’s doing he must be doing something right to be tied top try scorer with Raymond Rhule.

13. JP du Plessis

This Currie Cup has unveiled quite a few young stars, JP du Plessis is definitely one of them.

12. Meyer Bosman

He’s an important link in the Sharks backline in this tournament and his accurate kicking has been instrumental.

11. Anthony Volmink

With a  little more game time this young man could develop into a very dangerous wing. Definitely one to keep an eye on.

10. Demetri Catrakilis

He was great in last years Currie Cup and then never got near the Stormers team in 2012. He looks to be getting back his confidence and are starting to deliver the same high quality performances he did last year.

9. Nic Groom

He’s the third Scrumhalf in line at WP, but he made a strong argument for the position with this performance.

8. Keegan Daniel

As always, Keegan was everywhere on the field, making breaks and getting over the advantage line, no less than any of the other “bigger” forwards.

7. Rynhardt Elstadt

He is a very solid performer and always puts in the hard yards.

6. Marnus Schoeman

Marnus stole the possession and Willie created the attacks. He was a huge annoyance to the Lions and that’s always a good thing to say about an openside flank.

5. Martin Muller

He’s been very reliable for Griquas in the line-outs and manages to contest quite a few balls on the opposition throw.

4. Ligtoring Landman

He has been impressive throughout this tournament and was another stand out performer in their win over the Lions.

3. Lourens Adriaanse

Against a very strong Lions scrum Griquas remained solid, he is also one of the props with a high work rate.

2. Siyabonga (Scarra) Ntubeni

Maybe you don’t know him yet, but this young man is fast making a name for himself. A stocky player with a strong leg drive, he gets around the park a lot.

1. Dale Chadwick

It took him some time to warm up to this years Currie Cup, but Dale’s work rate has certainly improved and on Saturday he owned his opposite number at scrum time.

  • And to think Nic Groom might only have got a few minutes had Duvenage not injured his leg. 🙄

    He had an exceptional game! 😎

  • It’s only a matter of time before Willie le Roux gets noticed by Meyer… The guy has too many skills to be ignored… Compared to say, Sideshow Bob Kirchner for example… On the subject of Meyers, Bosman just keeps getting better and better!

  • @robdylan (Comment 3) : Probably because he doesn’t like to tackle.

  • I still don’t rate Chadwick, hope he can string a couple of performances like that together, maybe I will warm up to him then.

  • Jacobie Adriaanse at 3? Think you may have meant his brother, Lourens?

  • @Greg (Comment 10) : I didn’t know they’re brothers. Cool.
