The established, dependable scrummager will look to deliver a big third season with the Cell C Sharks in 2016 as he adds to the quality depth in the front row. As the understudy to the now departed Jannie du Plessis at tighthead, this season offers the strong front rower the opportunity to further entrench and establish himself, anchoring the Cell C Sharks scrum. Capped at international level, he made his Test debut against France in Paris in November 2013 and he will look to deliver big performances that see him recapture the form that saw him called up to the national squad. His early rugby development started at age group level at Western Province, before he moved to Griquas, alternating Currie Cup rugby in Kimberley and Super Rugby for the Cheetahs for three seasons before finally making the move to Durban in 2014.
