Eben Etzebeth TWT

The powerful second row giant finally returned to action for the DHL Stormers in 2015 after missing the entire 2014 campaign with a foot injury, but a chest injury sustained in pre-season made The Faithful wait a little longer to see him back on the Newlands pitch.

A true physical specimen at 117 kilograms and 2.04 metres, many regard him as the premier No.4 lock in world rugby with an exciting blend of power and athleticism.

After featuring for the SA Under-20 side in 2011 Etzebeth made both his Vodacom Super Rugby and Test debut in 2012, and claimed the SA Young Player of the year award in both 2012 and 2013 before being nominated as IRB World Player of the year in 2013. Away from the field, he is a big family man and a big lover of cars.
