PLAYER WRITE-UP
According to other props in South African rugby, Baksteen is an apt description for this nuggety tighthead feared for his scrummaging power. Groomed by teammate Willie Meyer, and like Meyer he began his provincial rugby in a smaller rugby region of South Africa, Northern Free State. He played for the Griffons against the touring British Lions in 1997 before moving to Eastern Province in 1998 from where he was chosen for the Sharks squad for the 2000 Super 12. Nel moved to the Lions last season where he made his first appearances for the Cats. A solid performance in the Currie Cup saw him retained for this year’s campaign. Playing Position: Prop Club: Raiders; University of Johannnesburg Overseas Tours: Super 12 Honours: Played for OFS, NOFS, EPRFU, Sharks, GLRU, Cats 1996-2004 Golden Lions Bankfin Currie Cup 2002 Golden Lions Vodacom Cup 2004 Golden Lions Vodacom Cup 2005
