Profile

At 2.03m tall and 120kg the newly-signed lock brings massive presence to the Cell C Sharks second in 2016. As a junior player, he featured prominently for the Lions at age group (Under 19 and then Under 21) level, before going on to play in the Vodacom Cup, Super Rugby and Absa Currie Cup competitions during his two years spent in Johannesburg. During that time, he played in the tournament-winning South Africa Under 20 team that competed in the 2012 IRB Junior World Championship. He then made the move south to Western Province and the Stormers, gaining Currie Cup and Super Rugby experience in the three years leading up to his relocation to the Cell C Sharks.
