A rosy future was envisaged for Phepsi Buthelezi from a very young age.

And, even at only 23 years of age, this highly talented loose forward has more than lived up to the promise.

Playing with the confidence and maturity of a seasoned international, Buthelezi is relishing competition at the highest level and has already captained the Cell C Sharks in the URC arena.

It surely is only a matter of time before Buthelezi follows in the footsteps of legendary No 8s in black and white, like Tom Bedford, Wynand Claassen and Gary Teichmann, who went on to lead South Africa with distinction too.
