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

Relax in the Luxury of LaLuxe.

The Sharks earned the right to play for a home final in their home semi final, by comprehensively beating the Griquas in the first match of the weekend and after the Cheetahs lost the fight against a strengthened WP side, all the Bulls had to do to keep their hopes in the competition alive, was take 4 points against a weakened Lions team, which they duly did.

We saw the return of the Springboks to the Currie Cup. They made their presence felt in the final game of round matches and the three teams that benefited most from their return also has the most players in our team of the week. The Bulls with 5 and the Sharks and WP each with 4. The Lions and Griquas sneaked in with 1 each.

15. Zane Kirchner

Did what he does best as good as ever and in so doing had a big hand in his team’s victory.

14. JP Pietersen

No one can deny his class and if not already, he must be close to the best wing you can find.

13. Paul Jordaan

He has been strong on defence all season and has shown that he has more tricks than just speed in his bag.

12. Jean de Villiers

At least with Frans Steyn’s injury we’ll see him in his best position for the Boks. He’s clearly a better player at inside centre.

11. Bjorn Basson

He’ll be hoping that he can do enough to force selection for the EOYT. He is perfect for the Bok game plan and on form would be a great pick.

10. Patrick Lambie

Got rid of some rustiness with an unfamiliar error here and there, before showing glimpses of his old self, controlling the game and putting in a few magic touches.

9. Cobus Reinach

With South Africa’s limited depth at scrum half he might just be pushing for a Bok call up.

8. Duane Vermeulen

Another returning Bok who made an impact for his team.

7. Jacques Potgieter

That break of his lead to the Bulls’ first try and was the turning point in the game.

6. Dewald Potgieter

If nothing else, he must be the hardest working flanker in South Africa and has been growing as a captain this season.

5. Martin Muller

When nothing else is functioning for his team, Martin Muller has ensured that the line outs does for the Griquas.

4. Eben Etzebeth

By this time we knew his Currie Cup debut would be a success.

3. Pat Cilliers

Could still potentially be the tight head back up the Boks need.

2. Chiliboy Ralepelle

He’s been part of the Springbok set-up since 2006. If he can stay fit, he’ll play an important role in Bismarck’s absence.

1. Steven Kitshoff

He’s less flash and more control compared to other loose head props, but that maturity might just be the thing that could get him a Bok call up sooner rather than later.

  • Did not watch the Bulls game, but Kirchner must have been excellent to beat Ludik to the 15 spot 🙄
