One of the Exiles' high profile signings, Danie (28) is the highly regarded South African hooker, who has joined from the Blue Bulls Super 12 team. He has been capped 15 times by the Springboks and has made 32 appearances in the Super 12 tournament. He is a powerful force in the scrum and enjoys a first class reputation for the accuracy of his line-out throwing. Danie suffered a knee injury last season which restricted his appearances last season to just 10, but a strong recovery, recall to the South African national side and good pre-season performance against Leinster mean Danie is ready for the season ahead.
