Incredible new video shows how effective Faf de Klerk and Cheslin Kolbe are despite their size
An insane new video dropped last night highlighting how effective that Faf de Klerk and Cheslin Kolbe have been since they emerged on the rugby World stage for their clubs and South Africa.
Both the players have made a reputation for themselves for being pint-sized players that have had a massive effect on the game.
This video has shown just how effective that they are despite their size.
Kolbe is one of the best wingers in the World with an incredible sidestep which helped South Africa to win the 2019 World Cup. He scored the try that would eventually help his team win the final.
Faf de Klerk is even smaller than Kolbe, but his incredible defence has given him a name in the World game as one of the best players on the globe.
This video truly shows that size doesn’t matter in rugby!
