Keegan Daniel's fantastic chip and chase try to seal victory against the Bulls

The Sharks shot to the top of the Currie Cup table this weekend after their remarkable 34-25 come from behind victory over the visiting Blue Bulls in Durban.

All the Springboks were back in action after the Tri Nations, and both sides went at it full tilt, resulting in an eight try spectacle that was only really decided in the last five minutes.

With the Sharks feeling the pressure of the Bulls, and an imminent drop goal for the win posing a constant threat, this superb try by young Sharks loose forward Keegan Daniel came out of nowhere, taking the game away from the visitors and sealing victory for Sharks.

Daniel is a young tearaway who has always been physically smaller than every other forward in the country. But what he lacks in size, he makes up for in speed, skill, and heart.

Previously an under 21 star, there was talk of him taking time out to bulk up before making his senior debut. But Daniel had too much to offer, and is now a fully fledged member of the Sharks Super 14 and Currie Cup squads.

In this match he wore number eight, but is normally a flanker, who can often be seen flying at opposition flyhalfs and diving in for spectacular tries. Earlier this year in the Super 14 he scored against the Blues just 16 seconds after kickoff, a try which was featured in our Round 4 Pick of the Week.

So while it may look strange to see such a fresh faced, tiny number eight, the quality of this try speaks for itself, and you’ll be sure to see more of Keegan Daniel in the future. Six, Seven, Eight, he can play anywhere. Stick a number 14 on his back and he’ll do just as well.

One to watch no doubt.
