Super Rugby Unlocked Team of the Tournament

It should come as no surprise that the title-clinching Bulls provide the bulk of our Super Rugby Unlocked Team of the Tournament, writes Quintin van Jaarsveld.

With the crunch clash between the second-placed Stormers and third-placed Sharks being called off in line with Covid-19 protocols, the tournament ended on a whimper rather than a bang at the weekend.

It was, nevertheless, mission accomplished for Jake White and his charges, whose 21-5 win over the Pumas at Loftus Versfeld on Saturday saw the Pretoria side break a decade-long trophy drought and secure a fourth Super Rugby title.

Fully deserved of the domestic silverware, the Bulls won five of their six matches, including thumping their nearest title challenges from Cape Town and Durban. As a result, seven Bulls stars have been included in our Team of the Tournament.

Three Sharks and two Stormers cracked the nod, along with two Cheetahs, who finished their campaign on a positive note with a 28-9 win over neighbours Griquas, who were unlucky not to claim a win after coming within a hair’s breadth of upsetting both the Stormers and Sharks. Livewire scrumhalf Zak Burger was the Kimberley side’s talisman and rounds off our team.
