Profile

‘Giant’ as he is affectionately known, was drafted into the Cell C Sharks Vodacom Super Rugby squad in 2015 and quickly proved his value as a big, powerful second rower with huge presence, thanks to his 126kg frame. He began his junior rugby in Eastern Province where he made his ABSA Currie Cup First Division debut as a 20 year old, before moving to the Lions where he spent the next two seasons. He represented South Western Districts for four and a half years before making the Pumas his home since 2013. He returns on loan from the Pumas for a second season of Super Rugby and is expected to make another big impact for the Cell C Sharks in 2016.
