Kolbe is Player of the Month
September 12, 2013
The Sharks coaching team and Western Province utility back Cheslin Kolbe were on Thursday named as the respective Absa Currie Cup Coach of the Month and Absa Currie Cup Player of the Month for August.

The announcements were made during the Sharks’ team announcement in Durban. Brad Macleod-Henderson, Sean Everett and director of rugby Brendan Venter have proven to be a powerful management team, judged by the side’s second place on the log at the halfway mark.

They have demonstrated what Absa calls the Human Spirit, by embracing the challenge of starting their campaign as a new coaching unit. The trio received an overwhelming vote, with Western Province coach Allister Coetzee also a worthy nominee with his team occupying first place on the Absa Currie Cup table. Western Province has been consistent performers so far winning three of their five matches and drawing two.

The fleet-footed Kolbe has been a revelation in his debut in the Absa Currie Cup with his mesmerising runs. The 19-year-old’s transition from the junior provincial ranks to senior rugby has been seamless with Kolbe playing a pivotal role in his side’s first place on the points table.

Kolbe staved off challenges by Sharks loose forward Jean Deysel and Lions fly-half Marnitz Boshoff, who were worthy nominees. Deysel has been instrumental in his side's success so far this season with his brutal runs with the ball in hand, while Boshoff’s kicking proved a powerful weapon for the Lions.
