    The Springbok hooker takes over the armband from Keegan Daniel and will get his first chance to lead the team in a pre-season friendly against English club Saracens at Allianz Park in London next Saturday.

    “He’s a freak and one of the best players in the world,” Sharks director of rugby Jake White said.

    “He’s a leader by example and I have no doubt he will be a success.”
