    Cape Town - Former Springbok captain and Bulls hooker Adriaan Strauss achieves a unique milestone this weekend when he plays his 150th Super Rugby match in Durban.

    According to SuperSport.com, Strauss spent his opening years at the Bulls before eight seasons at the Cheetahs and then returned to Pretoria.

    He is now the sole record-holder for the most caps by a South African player in the tournament, and the first to reach the 150 milestone.

    Strauss remains an integral part of the Springbok legacy, and continues to mentor younger players at the Bulls.

    Given the form he is currently in, and how fit he has become under John Mitchell's coaching, the Bok hooker still has a lot to offer South African rugby.

    The Bulls take on the Sharks in their SA derby on Saturday.

    Kick-off is at 17:15.
