From humble beginnings at the Gladiators Rugby Academy at Margate eight years ago, this lad from King William’s Town emerged as one of South Africa’s RWC heroes last year.

Starting in the triumphant final against England in Yokohama, Lukhanyo Am delivered a standout performance in midfield, with his deftness of hand leading to Makazole Mapimpi’s try in the 66th minute – the first by a South African in a RWC final!

The 26-year-old Am now has 15 Springbok test caps to his name, and has already appeared in 58 Super Rugby games, 48 of which for the Cell C Sharks.
