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

Relax in the Luxury of LaLuxe.

The deadlock at the top of the table was broken in a tightly fought match between the Lions and the Sharks, the Lions taking the spoils in that game and in this week’s team of the week with 6 players represented in our team. The toughest game of the weekend produced another 4 standout players, as we included 4 of the losing Sharks players even though they let themselves down in the second half of their match.

Three of the five remaining spots goes to the victorious Western Province team, who stays in the hunt for a home semi-final spot with their win and the Bulls and Griquas got one each to take the final two spots in our team this week.

15. Louis Ludik

The most consistently good fullback in South Africa for the last couple of months.

14. Gerhard van den Heever

Things haven’t gone his way since joining Western Province, with limited game time in the Super Rugby and his form taking a knock because of that. He’ll be hoping to build on his game against Griquas.

13. Lionel Mapoe

Gets through the tackle more often than not. A real threat on attack.

12. Francois Venter

His team still prefers using the boot more often than not, but when they do give him some ball to work with, he has looked really good.

11. Lwazi Mvovo

He’s a strong and dangerous runner and could be potent when given even a little space to work with. He didn’t see the ball that much, but when he did he made an impact.

10. Elton Jantjies

With so many young talented flyhalves in South Africa one can only hope that at least one of them can get a shot at showing what they got to offer to the national team.

9. Cobus Reinach

He has an excellent passing game. His kicking game has passed the test. He’s quick and dangerous on attack. It’s time to hand over the scrumhalf jersey to its new owner.

8. Keegan Daniel

Well if that wasn’t enough to impress the Bok selectors then they can shove it.

7. Don Armand

Made a seamless switch from the second row into the back row. He’s a strong ball carrier.

6. Cobus Grobbelaar

The man is the most committed Lions player, what will he do in 2013?

5. Franco van der Merwe

His experience has been important in guiding a young team to the top of the Currie Cup log.

4. Ligtoring Landman

In a losing cause, the big forward still made his impact with ball in hand.

3. Jacobie Adriaanse

How could you not select a prop when his scrum annihilated the opposition.

2. Scarra Ntubeni

His making a name for himself in this year’s Currie Cup and what a perfect time to do it with Deon Fourie possibly leaving for France at the end of the year.

1. JC Janse van Renseburg

The standout loosehead of the season. Solid and leading from the front.

  • @Talent (Comment 4) : We rely on Beast and the Du Plessis brothers too much… At least our depth is now being built in their absence.
