Powerful Zimbabwean born prop Tendai Mtawarira fired a warning to England with an incredible show of strength at the weekend.

The Sharks forward stunned players and fans by lifting and holding team-mate Anton Bresler so he didn't fall backwards onto his head during the Super 15 clash against Stormers.

No mean feat when you discover that second rower Bresler is 6ft 6ins tall and weighs more than 18 stone.

Mtawarira has enjoyed a fearsome reputation since he bullied The Bull of England, Phil Vickery, during a Test match in 2009.

The loosehead prop reduced a proud former England captain to rubble in 45 minutes of scrummaging torture.

Mtawarira has been named in the Springboks training squad for the three Test series next month.
