Check out a video of the Jebb Sinclair's punch on Jean Deysel in the Currie Cup match between WP and the Sharks. Sinclair was red-carded.

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.
