Super Rugby Team of the Week: Week 12

Although only one South African team managed a win last weekend, there were a few tough battles and had both the Stormers and the Sharks had a little better luck or had a call or two or the bounce of the gone their way once or twice, both teams might have walked away with a win this weekend.

It’s been 12 grueling weeks and I think most teams, aside from maybe the Bulls and the Waratahs, will appreciate the upcoming 3 week break the incoming tours will will give them, none more so than the Sharks who have had a horrible run with injuries this year.

The winning Bulls have 6 players in our team this week, the Sharks and Stormers both come in with 4 and the Kings who got their first whipping of the season, got 1.

15. Riaan Viljoen

Aside from a one or two bad skews of the boot when clearing Viljoen had a great game, doing all the things expected of him and looking dangerous with ball in hand at times.

14. JP Pietersen

A yellow card in this first 6 minutes did not help his team, but his workrate, defence and threat on attack was outstanding after that incident.

13. JJ Engelbrecht

Last year his inclusion straight into the Bok team was questionable, in a strong Bulls team he has looked confident and proved some of his potential. Oh and he’s fast. Really fast.

12. Jean de Villiers

A class performance as player, when maybe lacking as captain. His two tries one of which from individual brilliance has just eclipsed the two-try performance of Meyer Bosman.

11. Lwazi Mvovo

It’s a darn shame that he had to break his thumb or whatever it was that kept him out for a couple of weeks. The Sharks have clearly missed his pace and powerful runs.

10. Morne Steyn

He hasn’t played like this in a while. Maybe taking the pressure of himself of having to make the Bok team by signing a contract in Europe was just the thing he needed. Only thing is, should he be selected when he won’t always be available for the Boks.

9. Jano Vermaak

He’s always been one of the better scrummies in South Africa and has enjoyed game time behind a strong bulls pack.

8. Jacques Engelbrecht

He was part of a hopeless cause, but amazingly he still managed to stand out.

7. Rynhardt Elstadt

Valiantly tried and made the metres only for his team to give up possession at the most inopportune time.

6. Siya Kolisi

Tackled like a beast and worked hard all over the field to give clean ball to his team, but as with Elstadt, his team gave it away when they could least afford it.

5. Andries Bekker

One of the most consistent performers this season.

4. Pieter-Steph du Toit

It’s like he’s trying to prove something. He’s everywhere on the field and effective at what he does.

3. Werner Kruger

As always the Bulls built their momentum with a solid base.

2. Chiliboy Ralepelle

Another strong performer from another one of SA’s great hookers.

1. Dean Greyling

He’s been quiet for a while, which with his record with penalties must be a good thing. He was rewarded with a try for his hard work.

International:

15. Isreal Folau, 14. Cam Crawford, 13. Tim Nanai-Willimas, 12. Jean de Villiers 11. Lwazi Mvovo, 10. Dan Carter, 9. Andy Ellis, 8. Scot Higginbotham, 7. George Smith, 6. Steven Lautau, 5. Brodie Retallick, 4. Piet-Steph du Toit, 3. Ben Tameifuna, 2. Heath Tessman, 1. Ben Robinson
