Faf takes top awards in first season at English club Sale

Faf de Klerk4 May - Faf de Klerk, discarded by Springbok coach Allister Coetzee after playing in the Springboks' 2016 tests, scooped the top prizes at his new English club.

De Klerk, 26, not always secure with his passing and option taking but with a searing break, carried on with his game-breaking rugby in England where he plays for the Sale Sharks.

He received the club's Player of the Year award for the 2017/18 season and he was also voted as the Fans Player of the Season. It was his first year at the club.

He joined Sale from the Lions 2017 after playing for the Lions and also 11 tests for the Springboks.
