Khwezi Mona

8th Oct 1992 1.81m/112kg Loosehead Prop

Coming out of Selborne College young front rower Khwezi Mona joined the Sharks Academy after some impressive performances for Border at the 2010 Craven Week.

Having originally started as a loose forward he moved to the front row but found his opportunities limited, with Allan Dell and Maks van Dyk – both of them South African Under-20 players – ahead of him in the pecking order.

His breakthrough came in 2014 when he was included in the Sharks XV squad for the 2014 Vodacom Cup competition.

He made his first class debut by starting their home match against Western Province, helping them to a 25–7 win in Durban.

He failed to make the Sharks squad for the 2014 Currie Cup but made a move to the Pumas in 2015.

He helped the side win the Vodacom Cup for the first time in 2015 and since become a crucial cog in the Pumas scrum.

Mona joined the Lions Super Rugby squad but did not feature for the side before he joined the Griquas in 2019.
