_____________________________________ “Born in Harare Zimbabwe on the 5/03/1998.I attended Hellenic Primary School . And from as back as I can recall I have always been interested in sports, I enjoyed soccer, athletics, cricket and rugby. My first success story on the field began in grade 7 when I was selected for the Harare Province Rugby Team. I started to excel further in rugby. It was during this time that I was selected for Zimbabwe U16 Rugby. The national U16 team then toured to South Africa where we played in a tournament in Pretoria. It was during this tournament that I was approached by a representative from Glenwood High School in Durban. I was then offered a scholarship to attend the school.
I then moved to Glenwood high school in 2015 up until completion in 2016. Since completing high school there’s been no looking back. Today, I play for Old Georgians RFC which has given me so much exposure to world class club rugby. In just less than two years I have been selected for the Zimbawe U20 Rugby Team, The Zimbawe 7s Goshawks Team, and the Senior Zimbabwe Sables team.
