His 26 points against Zwartkop in 2000 puts him third in the list of the most points scored in a match

In the year 2000 he would go on to represent the Blue Bulls at Craven Week where he was selected as Captain.

Following his performance at the 2000 Craven Week he was selected for the SA Academy Team
