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

Relax in the Luxury of LaLuxe.

You never know what will happen in this years’ Currie Cup. Last week it was the Sharks who didn’t manage any players in our team this week it’s the Western Province team with their ill-disciplined performance in Durban they lose out completely.

It’s also interesting to note that the most consistent team of the past few weeks, the Griquas team who lost three to begin their season and has now gone on to win three in a row to start their season turnaround, has also been the most consistent team by some margin in our team of the week the last three weeks. They managed 15 players in 3 weeks, 6 more than the next best team WP with 9, the Lions and Sharks are just behind them with 8, the Cheetahs managed 5 and the Bulls in trouble of earning the wooden spoon this year has not managed one player in our team of the week in 3 weeks.

This week the numbers are again pretty evenly spread between the 3 winning teams, the Griquas with 5, the Sharks and Lions with 4 and the Cheetahs again managing a few lucky losers with 2.

15. Louis Ludik

Sharp under the high ball, as confident running the ball back as making a good contestable kick and knows the difference of when to use which option, a strong defender and always committed. What more can I say? Meyer give the guy a shot!

14. Deon Helberg

The Lions aren’t afraid of spreading the ball wide, making their wings the beneficiaries of a lot of good ball.

13. Jean Stemmett

Knows his midfield play well and ran the right lines to create and score a few tries.

12. Meyer Bosman

Everything he has been doing on the field for the Sharks in this year’s Currie Cup was the solid base young players around him has building their confidence on.

11. Rocco Jansen

He had a beautiful game, any wing likes scoring runaway tries like that!

10. Elton Jantjies

Those who question his quality are idiots. There, I said it. Since his introduction in senior rugby he has proven his worth game after game and the team that signs him for next years Super Rugby will gain a lot from it.

9. Cobus Reinach

This young man has something special, given more game time we might find out exactly what.

8. Keegan Daniel

It is always an honour to play for your country, but being dropped by your national selectors and still giving 100% in every game you play is an honourable quality that Keegan can be proud of.

7. Wesley Wilkens

Another strong and high work rate performance from from the strong flanker.

6. Heinrich Brussouw

Still not at his very best on the ground, but central to his teams every move.

5. Franco van der Merwe

Strong performances every week, Franco always puts everything in. This week he was rewarded with a easy intercept try.

4. Ligtoring Landman

With the outstanding performances he has delivered so far this Currie Cup, is he on the Springbok selectors radar?

3. Marcel van der Merwe

Finally a strong scrummager at tighthead who also enjoys getting his hands dirty in general play. And he’s only 21.

2. Callie Visagie

Strong and quick across the field and getting better with each game he plays.

1. Steph Roberts

A strong feature in the abrasive Griquas pack who has been delivering clean ball for their backs to work with.

  • There is no doubting Marcel van der Merwe’s abilities with ball in hand or his work around the park, but there were quite a few times on Saturday where JC Janse van Rensburg really pushed him around. He also gave away a few penalties in the scrums.
    On another note, I hope Reinach can continue with the good form he is showing (maybe not on Saturday against the Lions though), because we are in desperate need of some quality scrumhalves in SA.

    I don’t think we want to see a Bok team full of Sharks players!!

    I mean can you imagine having Chadders on the bench to cover prop or Bresler as a starting lock??

    Nee dankie swaer! 😈 😉

  • @wpw (Comment 6) : just look at the trend this year, the only game the Boks won was 2/3rds Sharks, since then less and less Sharks, and the results getting worse and worse.. You do the math 🙂

  • @Megatron (Comment 5) : Definitely grounds for both of these players being selected in our team again this week Megs, but I personally thought Willie although he had a great game and got involved a lot like usual, made a few more errors that he usually does – that’s not based on stats, just my perception.

    And Mapoe was great again, but I thought Stemmett made a few more infuencial runs and passes this week. It was a close call between the two of them though.
