A high profile signing for London Irish in 2005, Danie is the former, highly regarded South African hooker. He joined from the Blue Bulls Super 12 team. He was capped 15 times by the Springboks and 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, led to a recall to the South African national side.
