Profile

He worked his way up the junior ranks from Under 19 to Under 21 to Vodacom Cup level before making his senior debut for the Cell C Sharks in the 2013 Absa Currie Cup, aged just 21. The following year saw him play in his first Vodacom Super Rugby competition and such were his outstanding performances that he was immediately recognised as a special talent and was called up to the Springbok squad, earning his first Test cap against Scotland at 22 years of age. A serious knee injury curtailed his 2015 season and he spent much of his time mentoring the junior age group players and bringing his lineout skills and knowledge to the fore. He is an intelligent and hard-working lock who adds great value in the second row.
