The current team captain is Pierre Spies.They also won the 2010 Super 14 which was the last of that particular competition because the competition will be upgraded to Super Rugby in 2011. They have won three super titles and is among the most successful teams in the super rugby history with three titles, a feat they share with the Blues of New Zealand. They are the most successful Super 14 team in its history, winning three out of the five titles.
