Franco Mostert

27th Nov 1990 1.98m/112kg No 5 Lock

He joined the Golden Lions for the 2013 season, but was seriously injured in a car crash shortly after joining, which ruled him out until at least the end of 2013.

He recovered and was included in the Lions squad for the 2014 Super Rugby season and made his debut in a 21–20 victory over the Cheetahs in Bloemfontein.

He also played for UP Tuks in the 2010, 2011 and 2012 Varsity Cup competitions.

He joined Gloucester prior to the 2018/19 English Premiership.

Franco didn't disappoint in his first season in Cherry and White, making 16 first team appearances once his Springbok commitments were complete , impressing with his work rate around the park and ability running the lineout.

Mostert was named in South Africa's squad for the 2019 Rugby World Cup. South Africa went on to win the tournament, defeating England in the final.
