After a strong showing in the first part in last year’s competition, the former Junior Springbok captain was widely tipped to add senior honours to his resume. This did indeed happen during the 2013 Castle Lager Incoming Series and Botha debuted against Italy in Durban. A week later he tore knee ligaments against Scotland and sat out the rest of the year.
He has recovered well and will be a major force in the Vodacom Bulls pack. His abrasive style, superb skill set and pace will make him a huge threat as ball-carrier, whilst his line-out ability will be well utilised by his team.
