Profile

Boasting incredible speed and acceleration, he is a finisher with a strong strike-rate who boasts an eye for the tryline. He has the ability to beat defenders with his power and pace and relishes the opportunity to either take the gap, or create one. His pedigree has never been in question, showing his ability from a young age. He made the SA Under 19 squad before rising through The Cell C Sharks ranks to make his senior debut in the 2008 Absa Currie Cup. He made his Test debut two years later against Scotland on the Springboks’ end of year tour and although narrowly missing out on selection for the 2011 Rugby World Cup, he went one better in 2015 when he participated in the global showpiece. He has since amassed 17 Springbok appearances, 15 of them Tests.
