S14 Team of the Week – Round 14

Fullback: Kurtley Beale – Waratahs

Another cracker by Mr Surprised. The Waratahs destroyed a rubbish Hurricanes team, thus making me slip behind the two girls who know nothing about rugby in my Superbru group.. Kurtley scored 2 great (gay) tries with little chip and chase kicks. Expect him to try the same against the Stormers. Also expect him to FAIL.

Closely followed by: James o’ Connor – Western Force

Right Wing: Lachie Turner – Waratahs

Another polished performance from Turner. The Aussies have got flair aplenty in their backs and this man must surely be a front runner for a starting berth. With Drew Mitchell making up a quality back 3, it is no wonder they made the semis.

CFB: Gio Aplon – Stormers

Outside Centre: Jaque Fourie

Solid…da dun dun duuun…solid as a rock. Tina Turner wrote that song about Jaque years ago, true story. His skills organising the defensive lines are one of the reasons for the Stormers doing so well on defence and the Lions this season having no idea. Great attacking and support play and a fine try to top off the evening.

CFB: Ben Smith – Highlanders

Inside Centre: Juan De Jongh – Stormers

Juan is getting better and better and with Fourie on his outside had a …(wait for it)…stormer. His defence is excellent and PdV could do worse than have him in his squad for the June internationals.

CFB: Matt Giteau – Brumbies

Left Wing: Zac Guildford

Habana scored 2 toit tries. Drew Mitchell remains in good form and Fetu’u Vainikolo again showed his class with a great try for the Highlanders but I am gonna go with Zac Guildford this week. He has improved unbelievably this season and has been one of the best Crusaders players.

CFB: Fetu’u Vainikolo – Highlanders

Flyhalf: Quade Cooper – Reds

Quade again played a blinder. At one stage he did this back hand pass of justice that surprised the Highlanders and most of the crowd but not his Mum or his team mates, who are used to craziness from this young wipper snapper. Another good kicking performance and another win for the Reds, although only just.

CFB:  Peter Grant – Stormers

Scrumhalf: Sarel Pretorius – Cheetahs

Man this guy is playing well. Granted it was against the blow up doll Lions but still, a superb performance. Scored two tries and allowed the backline to shine. He received his 3rd ‘man of the match’ award and is surely the second best scrumhalf in SA at the moment.

CFB: Will Genia – Reds

Eighthman: Duane Vermeulen – Stormers

Another huge performance from the Stormers hard man. Strong around the rucks and athletic with ball in hand. Shrugged off a bit of argy bargy by Bakkies and smashed peeps in the tackle. All in all a pretty good Saturday.

CFB: Kieran Read – Crusaders

Blindside Flank: Richie McCaw – Crusaders

The general! Captain Awesome led from the front and is hitting good form towards the end of the competition. He alone is reason for the Bulls to know they are in for a tough tussle come Saturday.

CFB: Francois Louw – Stormers

Openside Flank: George Smith – Brumbies

His last game for the Brumbies and was his usual sublime best. He is retiring from international rugga and S14 to go play in Japan. I guess the lure of the asians was too much. After the game he had this to say “Mate, 2 words… Karaoke”.

CFB: Schalk Burger – Stormers

Lock: Andries Bekker – Stormers

On Sat, I couldn’t quite believe how tall this guy is, must be 9ft. Scored a good try and was again flawless in the lineouts. Has improved more than anyone else this year in the Stormers and must surely be their player of the season.

CFB: Sam Whitelock – Crusaders

Lock: Dean Mumm

Solid performance for the Tahs and instrumental in the lineouts and at ruck time. The Stormers are in for good forward battle come Sat. Bring it.

CFB: Bakkies Botha – Bulls

Tighthead Prop:  Jannie Du Plessis – Sharks

Last week he was nearly there but this week showed his true potential. Looking more and more likely to complete the front row for the Bokke too. A great performance from the Doctor. Word has it he will sometimes leave his business card on your face after a big tackle.

CFB: John Afoa – Blues

Hooker: Tatafu Polota-Nau Waratahs

Great stuff from the Aussie hooker. Definitely will be the starting hooker for the Wallabies and is in the form of his life.

CFB: Tiaan Liebenberg – Stormers

Loosehead Prop: Ben Alexander – Brumbies

Yes the Brumbies lost but this dude scored his 7th try to become the leading forward try scorer, not bad for a tubbikins.

CFB: Ben Franks – Crusaders

Plonker Award: Lions

Aaaargh. Was embarrassing watching these guys lose to the Cheetahs. Eventually the jokes about the team just became sad as they were mostly true. Dick Muir  = Epic Fail.

  1. Great Blog guys! Looking forward to seeing the results of the semi-finals! Cheers, Creative Minx Designs


  3. Tina Turner did not even write that song Mr “true story”….get an effing clue!

    • I have to disagree Rachel, Tina Turner definitely wrote that song, that’s why it says true story. I thought we were in the trust tree in the nest, were we not?

  4. Hey I LOVE that song by Tina Turner!! da dun dun duuun

  5. Of all the songs Tina Turner wrote in her illustrious career, this is easily her greatest. I’m a massive fan.

  6. I remember being at a Tina concert where she sang that song and dedicated it to Jaque. It was a very emotional night, one I will never forget.

  7. You idiots. Jaque Fourie WROTE that song and Tina Turner just sang it. Gosh.

  8. Tina turner once had sex with a midget in a bathroom. By Tina Turner I mean Matt and bathroom I mean anus.

  9. I forgot to say true story.

  10. How does Tina even know Jacques? This is way too far fetched… I also think that people should not be able to say “effing” on this blog, it’s really unattractive!

  11. You know what else is unattractive? Having to eat poop. A whole bowl full of poop. Tina Turner’s poop.
