May 2016 saw him being included in the 31-man South Africa squad for their three-test match series against a touring Ireland team where he made his Test debut

The front-rower was regular for the Springboks during the 2017 season taking his test cap tally to 23 and was been included in the Springbok squad for the 2018 June Internationals.
