Esterhuizen was at the heart of Halrequins’ memorable comeback victory over Northampton Saints in the English Premiership on Monday night.
The big centre made 12 carries, 42 metres, beat two defenders, executed five tackles and enjoyed gainline success on nine occasions.
Esterhuizen has consistently been in impressive form for his English club, and there are growing calls for him to be recalled to the Springboks in 2022.
The 27-year-old last played for the Springboks in 2019 (earning his eighth Test cap against Argentina), but missed out on World Cup selection, and has not really been in the national frame since then.
However, there is good reason to believe that Esterhuizen could soon be back in the Bok mix should he continue to perform at such a level for Harlequins.
