Schalk Erasmus

16th Apr 1998 1.83m/103kg Hooker

Schooled at Afrikaanse Hoër Seunskool (Affies), Erasmus is a dynamic front-rower who has represented the Blue Bulls at various age-group.

He competed at the Craven Weeks and the SA Schools team in 2016 before opting to study at Stellenbosch University where he tasted Varsity Cup glory with Maties in 2018 and 2019.

His star continued to rise in 2018 as he made the trip to the World Rugby U20 Championship in France where he helped the Junior Springboks claim a bronze medal.

The following season would be the year that Erasmus was promoted to senior rugby as he made his Currie Cup debut off the bench against the Griquas while also turning out for Western Province in the SuperSport Rugby Challenge.

In May 2020, he signed a three-year contract to return to his roots with the Bulls, securing his future at Loftus Versfeld until October 2023.
