There's no doubting that Springbok and Harlequins centre, Andre Esterhuizen, is one of the form players in the world right now and his plethora of man-of-the-match awards certainly proves it.

Esterhuizen won his third award in a row on Saturday in Harlequins' dramatic last-minute 14-12 win over the Exeter Chiefs at the Stoop.

The centre scored the final try of the match with Marcus Smith landing a touchline conversion to seal victory for Quins.

The 27-year-old's previous man-of-the-match awards came against Glouster at the start of the year and the Northampton Saints in December.

The inside centre is surely doing his Springbok claims no harm with his impressive displays, although Damian de Allende, the incumbent Bok No 12 had an excellent international season in 2021. 

Esterhuizen has eight Springbok caps to his name, having last played against Argentina in 2019 but wasn't part of the Springbok World Cup winning squad in Japan.

WATCH below as Esterhuizen is interviewed after his impressive performance on Saturday:
