The South African back rower was awarded for the second time in a row MOM.

Playing at Number 8 Schalk Burger has scored the deciding try in an hard fought match between Suntory Sungoliath and Canon Eagles.
With the home side trailing 13 - 17 with less than 10 minus to play, the impressive South African crossed the line for a five pointer which Samoan international Tusi Pisi converted for the eventual final score of 20 - 17.
The adaptation to Japanese rugby of 71 times capped springbok seams to be one of the easiest witnessed in the past years.
Canon Eagles may have deserved a better score, given that they sustained a period of play with 2 players on the sin bin, in which they even managed to score a try with scrum half Takeru Fukui. But Sungoliath were more able to transform each opportunity into point.
