However, Pietersen's return to Super 14 action brought about the driest of spells for the Shark as tries became his Everest.

A product of Hoërskool Generaal Hertzog, the winger has finally improved his susceptible handling and regained that killer instinct in 2009 which makes him a threatening prospect to the B&I Lions touring party, particularly as they seem to be slightly weak on the touchlines.
