2012-09-19 13:24

Johannesburg - Lions stalwart Wikus van Heerden will retire after Saturday's Absa Currie Cup match against the Sharks at Coca-Cola Park in Johannesburg.

Kick-off is at 19:10.

Van Heerden, 33, was a Super Rugby winner with the Bulls in 2007 as well as part of Jake White's RWC-winning Springbok squad later that year. He was also part of last year's victorious Currie Cup-winning Lions team.

Van Heerden enjoyed a stint in England in the 2009/10 season during which he played 21 matches for Saracens. He also has 14 Springbok caps to his name.

Van Heerden is the son of former Springbok Moaner van Heerden.

    Great player for the Lions, Bulls and Springboks. We (the Lions) missed him this year. Would have been a better year if he hadn't been injured through a spear tackle 30 minutes into the season... All the best Wikus!
