SARU announces Player of the Year candidates

Celebrating what has been a pretty good year for the Sharks on the domestic front, no fewer than six player from the East coast have been included in SA Rugby’s short list of ten for the coveted “South African Rugby Player of the Year” award.

SARU dipped their feet into social media this year for the first time, using Facebook as a platform for fans to add their opinion as to who the nominees should be and while the resulting short list does, to an extent, reflect great form over the course of the season, there’s a definite “popularity” aspect to the voting this year as well.

Here are the nominees, in alphabetical order:

1) Willem Alberts
2) Keegan Daniel
3) Bismarck du Plessis
4) Jannie du Plessis
5) Eben Etzebeth
6) Bryan Habana
7) Elton Jantjies
8) Siya Kolisi
9) Pat Lambie
10) JP Pietersen

The public is once again encouraged to cast thier vote for the winner, using Facebook. The link appears below, but before you do that….

I’d like to make an impassioned plea, if I may, for all Sharks fans to give strong consideration to voting for Keegan Daniel. The risk with so many Sharks in the running for the prize is that the vote from Sharks fans may end up so diluted that none of our boys ends up winning. My feeling is that off the candidates, Daniel has had the strongest season all round; I think it would also send a pretty strong message to the Bok selectors if the man they dumped without a fair shot to shine ends up winning the award (or, at least, the popular vote).

Let’s put our personal favourites aside this year, of that’s ok, and unite as a Sharks support base to vote for our captain?

The voting link is here.
