|The Beast and Jan|
After quenching our thirsts with the various liquids the Natal Rugby Union had provided for us, it was time to light the fire and start braai'ing some meat because sooner than we knew it we were being circled by a bunch of hungry Sharks. Thankfully not the kind you find in the waters of the ocean but rather the ones that play rugby. One by one they exited the tank and made their way to the braai area due to the smell of the food. Well it was their parking lot we hijacked for the braai so they would have came any way.
|The Hoff and Jan|
First up was the injured Jean Deysel, the human wrecking ball as they call him, to my surprise he wasnt as big as I expected him to be but fat chance I'd tell him that to his face, even if he was injured! A few kebabs down and the ever friendly Beast popped along to have a chat, since the series Jan was shooting was in Afrikaans, the Zimbabwean born prop tride his best to converse in the language, but I think we were just making him more hungry.
|Willem Alberts and Jan|
Player after player we interviewed and asked who they thought was the best braai-er from the team and each time we got the same answer. "Willem Alberts" they said, so without hestitation ... okay they might have been hestiation in calling one of the most biggest, toughest and scariest players in the squad up but he was rather happy to join us. After spending some time with the BigVic we learnt that he was the total opposite to what one would think he is. No doubt one of the nicest guys a person can meet, and he knows how to braai a good chop!

As the night wore on, the food pile got less but the fun never stopped. From John Plumtree poking fun at the DuPlessis brothers, to Pat Lambie playing touch rugby with the little kids. It was an experience I'll never forget. The night I got to braai with the Sharks!
