Coming to Northampton for the start of the 2017/18 season, Springbok scrum-half Cobus Reinach brings great attacking potential to the squad.
The Bloemfontein native attended famous rugby school Grey College, and made 17 appearances in the 2011 and 2012 Vodacom Cup before advancing to the Sharks’ Currie Cup squad – winning the competition in 2013.
Reinach made his international debut for South Africa in 2014, and scored a try against future teammates Dylan Hartley and Tom Wood at Twickenham later that year in a 31-28 win for the Springboks.
The son of former Springbok wing Jaco, Reinach also turned out for the Barbarians in 2015, and has clearly inherited his father’s acceleration and footwork to nail down his place among the Premiership’s best attacking No.9’s.
