Pote Human has gone “Down Under” to find a replacement for injured lock, Ligtoring Landman. Landman who broke his thumb in the match versus the Sharks will be out until at least the second round of the Currie Cup.
With Martin Muller (Lions), Frikkie Spies (France) and Edwin Hewitt (Sharks) all gone to greener pastures, Landman, Nepgen and Lobberts were the only lock options. Pote has brought in the man mountain Rory Arnold from the Gold Coast Breakers Club in Queenslan Australia, to trial for the Currie Cup season.
Rory Arnold was born in Wagga Wagga in Australia. Being 2.08 m tall, and weighing 127 kg, it is no surprise, that he ended up with the nickname of “Big Dog”. Arnold played against the touring British and Irish Lions for the combined New South Wales and Queensland team. He plays lock for the Gold Coast Breakers Club in Queensland Australia.
Not much is known locally about Griqua’s latest signing, but he will be watched with interest, I have no doubt.
