Tendai Beast Mtawarira Attends Carling Black Label Match

Prominent rugby player, Tendai Beast Mtawarira attended the Carling black label match over the weekend.

He took to social media to update his followers that he had an honour to be present at the stadium during the match.

“An honour to be a part of the Carling Black Label #CarlingChampions Match over the weekend. A great tournament, great players and a great trophy,” he posted.

SA Rugby on Thursday released the starting team, which was chosen by fans of the domestic Currie Cup teams, to play in the Carling Champions Match against Kenya last weekend.


Bulls hooker Schalk Erasmus was the favourite player with the most votes from rugby supporters across SA and he was closely followed by teammate and prop Simphiwe Matanzima with the second most votes.


The Champions Match was  played on November 6 in Pretoria and the South African select team was  coached by Bulls coach Jake White.


Players from all the seven provincial teams that campaigned in the 2021 Currie Cup were eligible for selection and it comes as no surprise that the squad, which features an extended replacements’ bench, is stacked with players from the Bulls.


The Pretoria-based players have been the dominant force in local rugby in the past few seasons since former Springbok coach White arrived at Loftus.


The Bulls had no less than nine players in the squad of 30 players and the rest of the squad consists of six from the Cheetahs, five from Western Province and four from the Sharks.
