Lions hooker Malcolm Marx is one of three South Africans selected for Fox Sports Lab’s Super Rugby Team of the Season.
The others are Stormers prop Steven Kitshoff and Bulls lock RG Snyman.
‘Marx has established himself as the most formidable hooker in world rugby,’ said Fox Sports Lab.
‘The 24-year-old Springbok was a dominant ball-carrier this season, leading all hookers in tries (eight), try assists (three) and tackle busts (30).
‘A constant threat at the breakdown, Marx secured a competition-high 19 ruck and maul forced turnovers.
‘A hamstring injury kept him sidelined for three weeks of Super Rugby and prevented him playing in the June Tests against England.
‘However, he still managed the third most carries (91) and second most run metres (501) by a hooker this season.
‘Marx won 126 of his 141 lineout throws (89.4%) which was third highest among starting hookers.’
