Currie Cup Team of the week: Week 7

Only three more games to go before the end of Currie Cup round-robin and this time it was the Sharks who showed some intent and send a warning to their opposition with a comprehensive victory against the Cheetahs. They also take the top spot on the log from Western Province who struggled to get past Griquas. The Lions put in another dominant performance against the Bulls for their convincing win.

Next week the Bulls will come up against the ever-competitive but oh-so-unlucky Griquas in a match to avoid the wooden spoon. Whoever loses here will surely be out of the race with only 2 matches to go, while the Sharks and the Stormers will aim to win their games to put some distance between themselves and their weekend opposition.

Lets have a look at the players who stood out this past weekend:

15. Marnitz Boshoff/SP Marais
We couldn’t decide between the two. Both players made a couple of beautiful breaks, both found space behind players with accurate kicks and both joined the line beautifully, running great lines to put their backs into space. It’s a tie for us.

14. Andries Coetzee
Coetzee just came back from the horrid injury he picked up while on loan to the Sharks and he’s looking just as calm and collected as he always did. He never looks like he’ll make something happen, but he almost always does.

13. Juan de Jongh
It’s slim pickings in South Africa, the only other player who could have been considered in this position being Johann Sadie, but he was dominated by his opposition.

12. Heimar Williams
Another outstanding performance by the young man. If this rotation system is good for anything, then it is for unearthing talents like him and giving them a decent shot (without too much pressure), to show what they can do.

11. Lwazi Mvovo
He’s been a little invisible during this Currie Cup and came out of nowhere to produce a few moments of magic in this game. Hopefully it’s the start regaining his form. He looked like he enjoyed himself for a change.

10. Fred Zeilinga
Another gem unearthed by the Sharks. He will keep Pat Lambie on his toes, which is a good thing, because before poor Pat had to play every single minute no matter what.

9. Ross Cronje
He reads the game really well which assists in him making sound decisions and even spotting a few gaps.

8. Keegan Daniel
Relished being back at eighthman and playing in more space. It’s always great to see him take a clearance kick and casually jogging up to the defensive line, before completely bamboozling them. A great captain’s performance from Keegan.

7. Warwick Tacklenberg
He’s come out of nowhere and put in a few noticeable performances.

6. Marcell Coetzee
After a performance like that, I expect him to get a chance of the bench for the Boks. The best game he’s had in quite some time.

5. Pieter-Steph du Toit
Another player who will be sorely missed by the Sharks. Pieter-Steph and Marcell in tandem, wreaked havoc with ball in hand.

4. Lood de Jager
Even after his team was well out of the contest, de Jager continued making big runs straight at the Sharks’ defence.

3. Ruan Dreyer
Another reasonably unknown player making his mark for the Lions. It’s only one game, but he’s one to keep an eye on.

2. Kyle Cooper
Another outstanding performance, with the assistance of Marcell and Pieter-Steph, Cooper had more room to express himself and it showed in the way he played.

1. Dale Chadwick
He’s come in for a lot of criticism, but socks up or down, Chadwick is looking an improved player this season. His scrumming is definitely stronger and his work rate much higher.
