Sikhumbuzo Notshe

28th May 1993 1.90m/100kg Openside Flanker

Making his name at Wynberg Boys' High, the dynamic loose forward has presented Western Province through all the age groups. His WP U18 performances earned Notshe a call up to the South African High Performance team in 2010 and South African Schools in 2011.

2013 then saw the Western Province man winning the U21 Currie Cup and getting his first senior cap for the Vodacom Cup team. In 2014 he made his Super Rugby debut against the Reds and scored a try in his first game.

Notshe was included in the Stormers pre-season training squad prior to the 2014 Super Rugby season and was one of the try-scorers in their trial match against Boland Cavaliers.

Notshe joined up with the SA sevens side at the end of the 2017 but will be available for the Stormers during the 2018 Super Rugby season and will look to continue his fine form that helped Western Province win the Currie Cup.

He has scored 10 tries in 38 Super Rugby matches since his debut in 2014. (As of Feb 2018)

Notshe earned his first Springbok call-up ahead of the 2018 June Internationals, alongside 16 other uncapped players.

Notshe heads into the 2018 Rugby Championship with 4 test caps.
