This is how the No8 was described on the Kingswood website: “Shingi possesses the rare athletic attributes of size, power, and speed with his explosive performances this season causing havoc to opposition teams.
“Shingi’s positive attitude and willingness to receive feedback, enabled him to improve in every game of the season with his continued progress earning him a reputation of being one of the best loose forwards in the country.
“Shingi’s line breaking capabilities validated his selection to the Eastern Province Craven Week Team however his humility has ensured that he is currently negotiating a three-year professional contract with a Top 14 French rugby club.”
