Kirsten has grown into a serious rugby player and his call-up to the Springboks touring squad in November as injury back-up was a fair reflection of his progression in 2013. A former Junior Springbok player who has improved steadily every season, the University of Pretoria graduate is now right there amongst the best props in the competition.
He is pretty mobile for an anchor man, has good skills with ball in hand and will always be amongst the top when tackle count is under discussion. An honest player with a high work rate, Kirsten will be keen to impress in 2014.
