Tyrone Green

5th Mar 1998 1.77m/80kg Fullback

A product of the Jeppe High School for Boys in Johannesburg - known for producing 2007 World Cup-winning coach Jake White and Springbok wing Sbu Nkosi – the fleet-footed South African speedster first came through the ranks as a fly-half, but has gone on to become one of the most promising young outside backs in world rugby after impressing at the 2018 Junior World Championship and during the 2018 Currie Cup season with the Golden Lions.

Green progressed with the Golden Lions to make his Currie Cup debut in 2018, since graduating to become one of the most dangerous attackers in Super Rugby. Green's versatility allows him to be able to play at wing and even wing.

He made his Currie Cup debut in August 2018 as a second-half replacement in the Golden Lions clash against the Griquas. His Super Rugby debut followed in round 5 of the 2019 Super Rugby season when he started at fullback against the Rebels in a Lions 36-33 victory in March 2019.

In May, Green opted to cancel his contract with the Lions to seek opportunities abroad, something that was afforded to all South African players due to the financial impact of the coronavirus.

In June 2020, having made 16 appearances for the Lions in Super Rugby scoring 2 tries, he signed with Harlequins.
