Jurie Van Vuuren
Jurie van Vuuren, a past 10’s rugby player at last year’s World Tens Series in Bermuda for Rhinos Rugby.
Jurie is currently playing for the Utah Warriors in The Major League Rugby (MLR). The Utah Warriors are a professional rugby union team that competes in Major League Rugby, the top-level rugby union competition in the United States and Canada.
Jurie, with no prior senior experience, joined the Stormers touring squad during the 2014 Super Rugby Season and was named in the starting line-up in his second match after coming in as a substitute in his first game. This South African player at the age of 28 is paving the way for himself literally and figuratively. You don’t want to get in the way of this giant muscular player, you will be trampled into the ground.
Playing both lock and flanker, showing Jurie has not only height and size on his side but also speed! Making him the perfect 10’’s player, as in this dynamic sport you need a player that has the speed of 7’s and the density of a 15’s player.
