A hugely experienced prop who can play both sides of the scrum and a popular team man.
He had one of his best seasons in Investec Super Rugby in 2016 as he played in 16 matches with nine starts.
His positive form continued through the next two campaigns as he racked up plenty of minutes.
That was especially so through the first half of 2018 when he started a lot of matches while his intensity off the bench was also really positive for the squad.
His experience and leadership has again been obvious in 2019 as he has again become the first choice tighthead in a number of matches.
