The big challenge to any schoolboy star coming into senior rugby is to continue progressing as a player, but to also deliver those performances that made him a stand-out in the first place.
A former SA Schools player, Kriel played for the Junior Springboks and the Vodacom Blue Bulls Under-21 year old as an 18 year old in 2013 and showed good form. His debutant season for the Vodacom Bulls will be one of learning the ropes in senior rugby, but with a massive physical ability to match his BMT and impressive pace, will also be keen to showcase his talent to a wider audience.
