Take a gander at this team:
SA TEAM OF THE WEEK (ROUND 8) 15. Curwin Bosch (Sharks) 14. Lwazi Mvovo (Sharks) 13. Lukhanyo Am (Sharks) 12. Andre Esterhuizen (Sharks) 11. Makazole Mapimpi (Sharks) 10. Manie Libbok (Bulls) 9. Louis Schreuder (Sharks) 8. Duane Vermeulen (Bulls) 7. Jacques Vermeulen (Sharks) 6. Luke Stringer (Sharks) 5. Hyron Andrews (Sharks) 4. Marvin Orie (Lions) 3. Trevor Nyakane (Bulls) 2. Kerron van Vuuren (Sharks) 1. Beast Mtawarira (Sharks)
Crazy right? But there is a reason.....many of our best players weren't playing, and many of our best players are playing like losers....Kolisi, Allende, Dyantyi, Jantjies are good examples. Although Allende was a bit better last week.
But the Beast confounded his critics on Saturday by working Sadi in the scrums and playing potently in the loose. And incredibly Move-ou looked alert and aggressive.
Of more consequence though the Sharks' centre combination are building a case for the WC....far from perfect.....but not the big fat nothing we have endured since Jean's departure.
