A Springbok call-up in 2012 indicated the impact this elusive outside back made in his first season of Super Rugby and seven consecutive test starts and four tries in 2013 indicated an even stronger showing in his follow-up year. Engelbrecht runs great lines on attack and is always a threat with ball in hand and managed to add consistency to his game as well, especially on defence.
He will be a senior team member in 2014 and if his progress in the first two years at this level is anything to go by, the Eastern Cape born player can be one of the real stars in 2014.
