Profile

Another product of Glenwood High School, he has spent all his life in Durban. His junior rugby career was a sparkling one, representing KZN at the Under 16 Grant Khomo Week and two years at the Under 18 Craven Week. After school, he arrived at the Cell C Sharks Academy, winning the Strength and Conditioning Prize in his first year. He went on to play age group rugby and then gained selection for the Cell C Sharks XV in the Vodacom Cup before being chosen to represent South Africa at the 2011 IRB Junior World Championships. Later that year, he made his senior Cell C Sharks debut in the Absa Currie Cup. The tough, breakdown specialist flank will look to make his Vodacom Super Rugby debut this season.
