ABOUT
Chris is a fantastic young rugby player, he is physically strong. Chris does all that he can to make sure he reaches his goals.
Having played at a very high level of rugby in South Africa, he now wants to take his talents to the USA/Canada and grow not only as a rugby player but as a student.
Looking at a major in sports and business management, Chris is very keen to get to a university/college that will push him on both academics and athletics getting the best out of him.

Who motivates you and why?

-- Dwayne Johnson - He's motivated in what he does and is always has a  positive attitude

Rugby Role Model?

-- Richie McCaw - he never gives up and he is good team player

What do you want to study and why?

-- Studying business and sports management would allow me to combine my passion with the real world challenges surrounding the business of sport. It would teach me the bigger picture surrounding the industry and ensure that I add value no matter which subsector I am able to enter.  It also broadens my options and  makes me more employable by upskilling me in two disciplines as well as the interaction of these disciplines.

Best Stadium you have played in?

-- DP devillers stadium Sasolburg - this is where I played my classic clash for my high school and it is the most memorable moment of my life.
