Cape Town - Scrumhalf Cobus Reinach was the official man-of-the-match, but prop Coenie Oosthuizen received most of the plaudits in the Bok changeroom after last Saturday's 22-6 win over Italy in Padova.

Oosthuizen played one of his better games at tighthead when he came in for the injured Jannie du Plessis.

According to Netwerk24, Oosthuizen won the Boks' coveted "Madiba award" for exceptional service to the team. He also won awards for the player who made the most tackles and cleaned out the most rucks.

Du Plessis is still sidelined with a hamstring injury which means Oosthuizen is likely to keep his place in the starting team for Saturday's Test against Wales in Cardiff.

Julian Redelinghuys, who made his debut off the bench against Italy last week, will keep his position among the reserves.
