In the run-up to the start of the Sharks’ Currie Cup campaign, we at Sharkworld have decided to create a weekly ‘get to know your team’ segment.

Pat Lambie - Courtesy ESPNScrum.comEvery Friday we will feature a member of the squad, sharing a few stats and (if I play my cards right), maybe a short little interview (although I’m still working on this part). To start off with, here a little something on the Kings Park favourite, Patrick Lambie.

Patrick was born and raised in Durban and proved to be an excellent sportsman from an early age. Patrick attended Michealhouse School where he was selected as captain of both the rugby and cricket first teams. While Lambie played in the Michaelhouse first rugby team, they were ranked in the top ten rugby schools in the country. He was both the KZN cricket and KZN Craven Week captain.

After school Lambie was drafted into the Sharks under 21 team in 2009 and ended as top points scorer in the U21 Currie Cup. He made one appearance for the Sharks senior side in 2009 in the Currie Cup, against the GWK Griquas at centre.

In 2010 Lambie made his Sharks debut against the Highlanders in the 2010 S14 completion at fullback. He was shifted to inside centre in the 2010 Currie Cup and due to injury was required to fill the fly half berth. Due to his natural talent and unwavering nerve he made the position his own and was integral in helping the Sharks reach Currie Cup success in 2010, He was awarded with the “Man of the Match” award in the Currie Cup final. Lambie was also the second highest point scorer in the 2010 Currie Cup.

He has represented the Sharks in Super Rugby 50 times (the youngest SA player ever to reach this milestone), scoring 515 points in the process. He also has 25 Currie Cup caps and 271 points in total in that competition.

Lambie was called up to represent South Africa during their 2010 tour to Ireland and the United Kingdom. He made his début against Ireland on 6 November 2010, at fly half after Morné Steyn was substituted in the second half. He converted a try on his debut. He has since then made 23 appearances in total for the Springboks with thirteen off the bench and ten starts. He has scored 50 points for the Springboks to date, courtesy of 10 penalties and 10 conversions.
