CLUB RUGBY HISTORY
In 2013 after my 8th game playing for the Old Boy’s Under 20 side, I was called up to represent the Old Boy’s Senior First Team where I was selected as the first choice centre for the duration of the season (4 games). Throughout the season I managed to score 14 tries of which I scored the winning try at the Under 20 Community Cup against Rovers. When the Old Boy’s first team was knocked out in the semi-finals against Collegians, the 2nd team coach asked that I play for them as they got through to the final. I scored the final try which led to the first win in 12 years against Rovers. I was named Man of the Match 4 times during the course of 2013 and also awarded the 2013 Old Boy’s Under 20 Player of the Year. During the 2014 season I scored 7 tries in 3 games for Old Boy’s. Currently playing for Rugby Club Leipzig in Germany.

7’s RUGBY HISTORY
I was invited to join the South Africa 7’s training group for a weekend of which Neil Powell and Marius Schoeman were preparing and testing players for back-up/injuries towards the build-up of the 7’s World Cup tournament. Received a call up to the Sharks 7’s squad in 2014 to play at the Safaricom Sevens in Kenya.

THE SHARKS
Received a bursary from the Sharks Academy in 2013 to study Business Management. Out of 120 players that were selected to join the Sharks Academy, I made the starting line-up to represent the Sharks Academy team that toured the Bulls and UJ Varsity (Total number of Centres at the Academy: 18).

In 2013 coach Etienne Finn called me up to the Sharks Under 21 side where I made the squad of 35. At the same time I was training with the Sharks 7’s side. I made the top 13 however they only selected 12 players. Due to the fact that I made the Sharks Under 21 side whilst still being Under 20, I was offered another bursary for 2014. In 2014, I was called up to the Sharks XV squad and the Sharks 7’s squad.
