“I’ll begin with my upbringing because it has played such a huge role in my success to date. I have been lucky enough to have a very supportive family who have always been there through the good times and the bad times. I have had awesome coaches along the way as well, who have backed me and who I can always turn back to for advice.”

My journey has been one of many twists and turns. I began at Heritage, moved to St. Johns Prep and then ended my schooling career at Michael house. At Michael house I played both cricket and rugby. I was interestingly enough one of the youngest cricket captains in the schools history. Upon completion, I attended the University of Johannesburg where I studied Sport Psychology and played Varsity Cup in 2015-2016.”

It was at Craven Week that I got my very first contract from Western Province. I played Western Province u19 where we lost in the semi finals of the u19 Currie Cup. My Sables debut came in 2013 vs Namibia. It’s almost crazy to believe that I have played 25 Test Matches to date. My proudest moment has possibly been captaining the country in 6 Test Matches last year, where we won the Victoria Cup.” I have also played for the Zimbabwe 7s team, the Cheetahs since 2013 making my debut at the PE leg of the HSBC World 7s Series. In terms of club, I was fortunate to sign a contract with Jersey Reds in the UK in 2017 and be part of the squad which finished the highest a Jersey team has finished in the league.

“I am really excited for the younger generation who hope to take sports up professionally. Remember that throughout your career one will come across set backs like injuries. It’s important to focus on what you can control rather than what you can’t. Making sure you have a good support system around you, setting yourself new challenges, setting your come back goals and use the time to work on things you might feel is a weakness in your game.”
