The Sharks coaching team and Western Province utility back Cheslin Kolbe scooped the Currie Cup coach(es) and Player of the Month awards for August.

Brad Macleod-Henderson, Sean Everett and Director of Rugby Brendan Venter have formed a powerful management team, judged by the side's second place on the log at the halfway mark.

They have embraced the challenge of starting their campaign as a new coaching unit.

The trio received an overwhelming vote, with Western Province coach Allister Coetzee also a worthy nominee with his team occupying first place on the Currie Cup table.

Western Province has been consistent performers so far winning three of their five matches and drawing two.

The fleet-footed Kolbe has been a revelation in his debut Currie Cup season, with his mesmerising runs.

The 19-year-old's transition from the junior ranks to the seniors has been seamless, with Kolbe playing a pivotal role in his side's first place on the points table.

Kolbe's has proven that he could hold his own despite his small frame.

Kolbe staved off challenges by Sharks loose forward Jean Deysel and Lions utility back Marnitz Boshoff, who were worthy nominees.

Deysel has been instrumental in his side's success so far this season with his brutal runs with the ball in hand, while Boshoff's kicking proved a powerful weapon for the Lions.
