A locally produced product of the KZN school system, his sheer determination took him to the Cell C Sharks Academy where he excelled. Although no Craven Week selection came his way, he quickly proved his credentials as an outstanding player, energetic and physical with a massive workload. Quiet and unassuming, he has a great presence on the field and regularly leads the tackle count as a devastating defender. His provincial career started with Under 19 appearances for the Cell C Sharks in 2011, but it wasn’t long before his incredible potential was recognised at the top level and the following year he would make his Vodacom Super Rugby debut. His big break came when he made his Springbok debut against England, at Growthpoint KINGS PARK, midway through the 2012 season, aged just 22. He went on to feature in all 12 Springbok Tests that year and has amassed 28 Tests already.
