The son of a former Springbok rugby wing Jaco, Cobus made his rugby debut 28 years after his father, also a Springbok athlete who was South African 400m record-holder. Unlike his father who was a wing, Cobus plays at scrumhalf, but is also blessed with blisteringly quick pace, great acceleration and an ability to wrong-foot the opposition with his sniping runs and capacity to step off both feet. He provides crisp, swift service in his primary role as link man between forwards and backs, but enjoys taking on the opposition on attack, His junior career started at The Cell C Sharks at age group level in 2009 before making his senior debut in 2011. His first test for the Springboks was in 2014, amassing 10 international caps, a figure cut short by injury in 2015, when he was a likely Rugby World Cup participant, having featured for the Springboks prior to the tournament in warm-up matches.
