We Select Our South African URC Team From The Week


The South African teams secured another full house of wins in the Vodacom United Rugby Championship this weekend, coming away with 19 out of a possible 20 points in the round.

This made the selection of a team for a week a challenge, however, certain players had a blinder and stood out from the competition. Werner Kok was simply put sublime and must be the one player that deserves a Springbok 15 man call up and unfortunately never will. Our player of the week must go to Vincent Tshituka who is the man the Lions' resurgence is built upon.

SA URC Team from the Week: 15 Quan Horn (Emirates Lions), 14 Werner Kok (Cell C Sharks), 13 Cornal Hendricks (Vodacom Bulls), 12 Harold Vorster (Vodacom Bulls), 11 Leolin Zas (DHL Stormers), 10 Manie Libbok (DHL Stormers), 9 Morne van den Berg (Emirates Lions), 8 Evan Roos (DHL Stormers), 7 Vincent Tshituka (Emirates Lions), 6 Marcell Coetzee (Vodacom Bulls), 5 Gerbrandt Grobler (Cell C Sharks), 4 Ruben Schoeman (Emirates Lions), 3 Thomas du Toit (Cell C Sharks), 2 Mbongeni Mbonambi (Cell C Sharks), 1 Retshegofaditswe Nche (Cell C Sharks).
