Engelbrecht’s arrival in Pretoria after a strong Vodacom Super Rugby season with the Southern Kings was welcomed by all. Not only did the powerful player fit the profile of a Pretoria loose forward, he also showed up well for the Vodacom Blue Bulls in the Absa Currie Cup competition.
His true worth seems to lie in his ability as an impact player and with the Vodacom Bulls well stocked in the loose forward department one can expect the former Springbok Sevens player to excel as a ball-carrier off the bench.
Engelbrecht loves the physical stuff and will be prominent on defence as well.
