PLAYER WRITE-UP
In 2013, Akona Ndungane will play his 10th year of first class rugby and like a good red wine, he's only getting better with age. A RWC winner in 2007, Ndungane - whose twin brother Odwa plays for the Sharks - has not lost his uncanny ability to compete and contest balls in the air or to finish off half breaks. Ndungane’s chasing from kick-offs has become legendary and he is always 100% committed. Although their careers overlapped, Akona and Odwa never played together for South Africa.
