Cap No 1174
The South Africa-born front rower was called up by Wayne Pivac after Ken Owens and Elliot Dee suffered injuries prior to the opening game of the 2021 Autumn Nations Series against New Zealand.
After leaving Durban, he headed to north Wales where he played for RGC in the Welsh Premiership. After a year with RGC he returned home but when a professional contract failed to materialise with Natal Sharks, he headed to the small town of Magherafelt in County Londonderry in 2017 to play for Rainey Old Boys.
He made his Ulster debut as a replacement against Edinburgh in November 2020 and had just played nine more games for them before being called into the Wales squad.
