Unfortunately, injury woes have led to limited game time for this openside scavenger of the Cell C Sharks too.

However, once back to full fitness, Venter is sure to once again prove his worth, especially at the breakdown where he has been deadly efficient at creating turnovers.

Venter made a couple of Super Rugby appearances for the Lions in 2019 and scored a brace of tries for the Gauteng-based side in the Currie Cup final that same year.

The 24-year-old, however, is yet another thoroughbred KwaZulu-Natalian.

Born down at Port Shepstone on the Hibiscus Coast of KZN, he also attended Glenwood and represented the Cell C Sharks at school level.
