AWARDS: Sharks and Springbok try-scoring hero, Makazole Mapimpi, was the big winner at the annual Sharks Player of the Year Awards.

Mapimpi enjoyed a stellar season, showing his prowess as an attacking wing with exceptional scoring ability.

He walked away with the three major awards of the night in that of Fan’s Player of the Year, Player’s Player of the Year as well as the most prestigious award, when he was named Sharks Player of the Year 2019.

Mapimpi was also a nominee in the Super Rugby Player of the Year category, alongside Andre Esterhuizen, Daniel du Preez and Lukhanyo Am, with Esterhuizen edging out his teammates to win this award.
