    SA journeyman Geldenhuys makes Super Rugby history

    2019-05-15 12:49

    Cape Town - Next to the dictionary definition of the word 'journeyman', expect to find a picture of South African prop Ross Geldenhuys.

    A tighthead prop by trade, Geldenhuys holds the record of playing for the most number of provinces in South Africa - eight of the 14 - Border Bulldogs, Pumas, Golden Lions, Boland Cavaliers, Free State Cheetahs, Griffons, Eastern Province Kings and Sharks.

    In addition, he spent time at the Blue Bulls and Western Province, but failed to appear in a first class match for them.

    Last weekend Geldenhuys broke a Super Rugby record when he represented the Hurricanes - his fifth Super Rugby side!

    In making his debut for the high-flying 'Canes, Geldenhuys became the first player to represent five Super Rugby teams after stints with the Lions (2008), Highlanders (2015), Kings (2017) and Sharks (2018).

    Geldenhuys, now 36, obviously impressed Hurricanes coach John Plumtree sufficiently as he's been named on the bench for Friday's clash against the Jaguares in Wellington.

    Kick-off is at 09:35 SA time.
