Keegan Daniel is the 27-year-old captain of the Sharks, and a favourite son of the Kings Park faithful. He’s 1.88m tall, weighs in at 100kg and has 93 caps in the Currie Cup, 83 Super Rugby caps and five caps for the Springboks. He’s inherited Lucy from his mentor, previous Sharks skipper John Smit, before Smit left to play in the UK.
