Curwin Bosch, a talented and promising rugby player, is known for his pinpoint kicking and deadly attacking abilities. Born in Port Elizabeth, he attended Grey High School (PE), where he honed his skills and laid the foundation for his rugby career.
From a young age, Bosch was selected to represent Eastern Province and participated in various competitions, including the Grant Khomo (2013) and Craven Week (2014 & 2015) tournaments. Despite being a year younger than most of his teammates, he showcased his talent and was chosen to play for the South African Schoolboys team in 2014 and 2015, facing formidable opponents such as France, Wales, and England.
In pursuit of his rugby ambitions, Bosch moved to Durban to join the Sharks academy in 2016. That same year, he earned a spot in the South Africa Under-20 training squad for the World Rugby Under 20 Championship.
Shortly after returning from the tournament, Bosch made his Super Rugby debut for the Sharks, coming off the bench in their clash with the Cheetahs. He made a total of three appearances for the Sharks that season, demonstrating his potential on the field.
The following year, Bosch's talent and hard work earned him a place in the Sharks Super Rugby squad for the 2017 season. In May of that year, he was named in the South African Under-20 squad for the Junior World Championship in Georgia. His exceptional performances for the Under-20s caught the attention of the selectors, and he was rewarded with a call-up to the Springbok squad for the 2017 Rugby Championship.
Bosch made his test debut as a substitute against Argentina, but he did not feature again in the national team that year. The coaching staff believed that he needed more time to develop before fully transitioning to test rugby.
Despite this, Bosch finished the 2017 Super Rugby season as the second-highest scorer in the competition, accumulating an impressive 151 points from his 13 games. His proficiency in slotting long-range penalties and consistent performances earned him a recall to the Springboks in May 2018, indicating his growing importance in the national setup.
