ETZEBETH, Eben team
Eben Etzebeth TWT

What more can be said of a player who has already amassed
23 Test caps and 21 Super Rugby appearances in just two years – not to mention a host of plaudits and awards to go with those appearances?

The massive second rower will make a delayed start to Super Rugby in 2014, courtesy of a foot injury sustained on Springbok duty at
the end of 2013, but his return will no doubt be welcomed by his teammates and feared by opponents.

Etzebeth featured for the South Africa team that competed at the 2011 Junior World Championship in Italy – alongside Nizaam Carr and Siya Kolisi.

He made eight appearances for the Stormers last year, scoring one try, winning a team-high 47 lineouts and effecting eight steals – second only to De Kock Steenkamp (13).
