ETZEBETH, Eben team
Eben Etzebeth TWT

DHL Stormers fans will be delighted to see this second row giant back in the mix after he missed the entire 2014 Vodacom Super Rugby tournament with a foot injury. In fact, not only did it rob The Faithful of an opportunity to see their favourite lock in action during Super Rugby, but he was only seen in action at DHL Newlands once in 2014 – when the Springboks faced up to the Wallabies in the Castle Rugby Championship. A true physical specimen at 117 kilograms and 2.04 metres, many regard him as the premier No.4 lock in world rugby and his form and fitness will be central to his Super Rugby franchise and, indeed, his country during a jam-packed 2015 rugby year. Away from the field, Eben is a big family man and a big lover of cars!
