Wium's early career saw him develop a reputation for focusing more on off the ball incidents than the ball itself, but over the past two seasons the man from Paarl has come of age. That does not, however, mean that the ex-WP schools player shirks the rough stuff. Basson, who represented the Springboks in his very first season for the Bulls, is regarded by many as a fine example of the modern lock - agile, fast and a skilled ball player.
