Bholi is an exciting recruit from the now defunct Southern Kings franchise.

Equally effective at both flanker and lock, this hulking unit – he is 1.95m tall and tips the scales at 112kg – turned out for the Bulls in 2018 and 2019, but last year returned to the Southern Kings.

The financial demise of the Eastern Cape franchise, however, saw Bholi, along with winger Yaw Penxe, being picked up by the Cell C Sharks, and the big bruiser hasn’t looked back since.

Physically Bholi’s more than up for the task in hand, while mentally he will be fizzing to measure himself against the best in the business.
