Sharks prop Tendai Mtawarira showed great strength to hold lock and teammate Anton Bresler in the air during his club’s game against the DHL Stormers on May 26, 2012 at the Shark Tank ( Mr.Price Kings Park, Durban). Bresler was in danger of landing awkwardly, but Mtawarira, better known as the Beast, showed his tremendous strength to keep Bresler in the air and gave him a safe landing.
Here is a photo of Mtawarira holding Bresler in the air. The Sharks won the game 25-20 with flyhalf Freddie Michalak, skipper Keegan Daniel and winger Lwazi Mvovo scoring tries.
The Beast holding up Bresler incident happened twice during the game, but the first one was the one that had the crowd applauding.
Bresler is well over 100 kgs, so for the Beast, even with his own strength, to hold him in the air the way he did, was quite something.
