Who was SA’s best in Super Rugby?
- 29 Apr 2014
Vote for your SA Player of the Week and you could win great prizes with Leatherman!
The four nominees are:
WILLIE LE ROUX
The winger's out-of-hand kicking skills resulted in the Cheetahs' first two tries against the Stormers and he scored their third. He also ran good lines, attacked the space, and kicked well for territory.
The flanker made a big impact at the breakdown and it was his hand that knocked the ball away from the Stormers and resulted in Cornal Hendricks' vital try with 10 minutes to go.
Burger made his return from injury off the bench in Bloemfontein and was the Stormers best player during the 30 minutes he spent on the field. He carried, offloaded and defended well.
The best South African player in Perth on Saturday was not wearing a Bulls jersey. Sias Ebersohn kicked well out of hand, and his accurate goal-kicking allowed the Force to build some scoreboard momentum towards the end of the first half.

Quota demands are unrealistic
The government should be investing in the development of black players rather than making quota demands that South African rugby sides cannot possibly meet, writes JON CARDINELLI.
Springbok pack stood up
The Springboks dominated the set pieces in the first half of the Rugby Championship match in Wellington, but struggled at times in the second, writes SIMON BORCHARDT.
All Blacks played big points better
The All Blacks deserve credit for their win against the Springboks in Wellington, writes MARK KEOHANE in Business Day newspaper.
