Acknowledged as one of rugby’s hardest-working loose forwards, Whiteley led the Lions to two sensational Super Rugby finals. He earned his first Springbok cap in 2014, became a regular in the starting line-up in 2016, and was named as the 58th Springbok captain by Allister Coetzee in 2017.
On-target striker, Nyasha Mushekwi’s efforts scored his team, Dalian Yifang, a place in the lucrative Chinese Super League next season.

Mushekwi made an immediate impression in China’s second league where he’s become the Blue Hawks’ go-to man upfront. Local fans will remember 30-year-old Mushekwi for his time at Sundowns where he scored 40 goals in 53 starts. Last season he ended as the second-highest scorer with 19 strikes, behind Brazilian hitman Luis Fabiano, as his team finished in fifth place.
