Cell C Sharks Away Jersey Honours Beast – Featured Durban Blog

Cell C Sharks Away Jersey Honours Beast:

Since making his senior debut for the Cell C Sharks back in 2007, Tendai “Beast” Mtawarira, the 144 player to represent The Sharks, has been a regular and highly popular fixture in the black and white jersey.

Such has been his dominance, that he holds the record for being the most capped Cell C Sharks player (150 caps) in Vodacom Super Rugby.

To honour this legend, who is in the twilight of his distinguished career, the Cell C Sharks 2019 Vodacom Super Rugby away jersey design pays tribute to the ultimate team man and a legend of the game…BEAST.

“Beast’s contribution to The Sharks cannot only be limited to the field of play, but also the role he’s played off it. He has been a role-model and mentor for numerous young props/players who have come through the system and who were able to learn so much from him, both as a player and human being”, said The Sharks COO, Eduard Coetzee.

“We are delighted that we can honour him in our 2019 Vodacom Super Rugby away jersey design.”

Beast added: “I am very humbled and consider it a massive honour to be celebrated by The Sharks with a jersey that honours me.

“It’s been a great privilege to represent this team for many years and I look forward to a big 2019 season to commemorate this special moment.”

The history books will record that not only is he a wonderful talent but so too a crowd favourite. Cries of “Beeeeeeeast” when he runs at opponents with ball in hand can be heard in stadiums around the world and he has become one of the most instantly recognisable rugby talents in the game.

In 2019, he is set to become the most capped South African Vodacom Super Rugby player in history, needing just six games to overtake Adriaan Strauss record of 156 caps, that he earned during his career with the Toyota Cheetahs and the Vodacom Bulls.

Apart from the launch of the away jersey, the Cell C Sharks will also play in two other jerseys during the campaign.

In terms of our home jersey, we have taken the decision to retain the core design of the jersey for the 2019 season with a few tweaks.

The third jersey that the Cell C Sharks will wear is the Black Panther inspired jersey, which will be launched early 2019. This jersey is part of SA Rugby and Vodacom’s partnership with Marvel that will see all our SA teams in Superhero themed jerseys for all local derby matches played in 2019.

The Cell C Sharks 2019 home and away jerseys will be available for purchase from The Shark Cage, The Shark Cage online store, Canterbury’s online store and all leading sports retailers from this weekend.
