Nizaam Carr TWT

To say that 2014 was a good year for Carr would be the biggest understatement of all time. Not only did the tearaway loose forward establish himself as a starting player for both the DHL Stormers and DHL Western Province, but he also won his first Springbok cap – against Italy in Padova in November – announcing himself with a brilliant break and try-scoring pass in a tough and physical encounter. His second appearance in Green & Gold saw the Boks go down to Wales in Cardiff, but he once again stood out as a replacement with his brilliant work-rate and feel for the game.

Carr suffered a serious knee injury during 2012, but – since then – his increased physicality has become a feature of his game, along with his renowned pace and skill which had always been key components in his make-up.

Nizaam was voted as WP Rugby’s Most Promising Senior Forward in 2013, but last year saw him walk off with two big awards at the annual WP Rugby Awards – the adidas MVP Award and the prestigious Players’ Player of the Year Award, the latter as voted for by his peers. Carr also received three big nominations for the 2014 SA Rugby Awards after his breakthrough season; as SARU Player of the Year, Absa Young Player of the Year and Absa Currie Cup Premier Division Player of the Year.
