Saffas abroad

Keo.co.za looks at the South Africans who performed in European club action this weekend.

Toulouse won the European Cup on Saturday when they beat 21-19 Biarritz in an all-French final. Shaun Sowerby had a typically strong game at No 8 while Daan Human packed down at loosehead. Biarritz boasted Eduard Coeztee (prop) and Trevor Hall (lock) in their line-up.

Joe van Niekerk received some good news on Saturday when he was selected for the Test against Wales. As the skipper of Toulon, however, he had no such luck as the French club went down 28-21 to Cardiff Blues in the Euro Challenge final. Former Stormers lock Ross Skeate also started for Toulon, while All Blacks legend Tana Umaga came off the bench.
