With just two games in the opening week, we take a look at the Top 5 performers of the opening weekend.
Carr recently returned from a very successful spell at Wasps due to a short loan agreement. He was excellent for the Stormers at 8 today making 15 of his 16 tackles with74 meters gained with ball in hand. The Springbok was a stand out for the home side and instrumental in their win
The Springbok attacked from the back with great vision as he carved away 107m on attack beating 5 defenders. Not only did he win 3 turnovers on the day but made 3 line breaks too.
The 23 year old excelled on his Super Rugby debut beating 4 defenders on his way to 50m run with ball in hand and scoring a sensational individual try at Ellis Park. He earned himself Man of the Match for his performance
The out of favour Springbok 13 partnered well with Harold Vorster in midfield for the Lions today and scored 2 important tries for his side.
Robert du Preez:
On the losing side today but du Preez had a solid opening game for the Sharks in Super Rugby after his move from Cape Town. His thunderous boot kept the Sharks in the hunt until the final whistle and bagging a try in the opening moments of the game
