The big-hitting centre’s breakthrough year came in 2015 when he showed his potential with regular game time. Recognised at a young level, he represented his province at Under 13, Under 16 and Under 18 level, before moving to The Cell C Sharks Academy after concluding his schooling. 2013 was the start of his career as he represented The Cell C Sharks at Vodacom, Under 19 and Under 21 level, before making his Absa Currie Cup debut. The following year, he featured off the bench in only one Vodacom Super Rugby match – in the fifth round (against the Bulls) – but had a prominent run during the second half of the Currie Cup tournament, enjoying a highly productive strike rate with three tries from six starts. He finally established his credentials in Super Rugby 2015, when he was selected in 13 of The Cell C Sharks matches.
