Having put in some strong performances for Pukke in the Varsity Cup competition and represented Leopards at age group level, BG has become one of South Africa's most promising up-and-coming props.
A strong scrummager who is mobile around the park, this explosive prop has had a stellar 2011 Currie Cup campaign with the Leopards.
Touted by many to represent South Africa at the next World Cup, it will only be a matter of time before BG gets his first Super Rugby cap, and achieves higher honours.
