James Venter made a couple of Super Rugby appearances for the Lions in 2019, but the 23-year-old is yet another thoroughbred KwaZulu-Natalian.He was born down at Port Shepstone on the Hibiscus Coast of KZN and attended Glenwood Boys High, representing the Cell C Sharks at school level.

Although the Golden Lions eventually lost against the Free State Cheetahs, Venter starred for them in last year’s Currie Cup final with an impressive brace of tries.
