He’s been dubbed the “wonder wing” and it’s easy to see why. Aphelele Fassi’s blistering speed, good passes and rock-solid defence have been praised by rugby fans and experts worldwide.
It came as no surprise when the talented young player got called up to represent his country for the Springboks’ first game of the season against Georgia.
And Aphelele (23) didn’t disappoint. The newcomer scored his first Test try in the fifth minute of the game – contributing to the Boks’ 40-9 thrashing of the Georgians.
