Currie Cup awards for Coetzee and Lambie

2010-08-05 00:00

SHARKS centre Pat Lambie and Western Province coach Allister Coetzee yesterday received the Absa Coach and Player of the Month awards at a ceremony held in Cape Town.

Coetzee’s side are currently in first position on the Absa Currie Cup log with 18 points. They are also two points ahead of the Sharks.

Western Province are currently enjoying an impressive run this season and are the only undefeated side in the competition.

The 19-year-old Lambie, a product of Michaelhouse, represented the SA Under-20s during the 2010 IRB Junior World Championship in Argentina earlier this year and has been in excellent form for the Sharks during the Currie Cup.

“I feel extremely proud and privileged to be the Currie Cup Player of the Month for July,” said the Sharks centre.

“I have been enjoying my rugby of late and it’s really awesome that I have been recognised with an award like this.

“However, rugby is a team sport and without the other Sharks players on the field around me I would not have been able to achieve this award.”

Lambie was also the second leading points’ scorer at the Junior World Champs with 75, seven behind New Zealand U20 flyhalf Tyler Bleyendaal.
