: de Bruin
De Bruin was included in a South African Academy side that played against a France Under-18 side in Durban. In 2012, De Bruin moved to Bloemfontein. He made eleven appearances for the Free State U19 side during the 2012 Under-19 Provincial Championship, starting ten of those matches. At the start of the 2013 season, he played for university side UFS Shimlas during the 2013 Varsity Cup competition.
After a long-term injury, de Bruin got back on the field in the SuperSport Rugby Challenge, he played his first match on 28 April 2018 against the Griffons.
The 2018/19 season turned out to be best yet for the powerful tight head prop, as he was able to get a lot more game time than usual. In 2018/19 he became a regular on the bench, and he made a tremendous impact with his strong scrummaging and ball-carries.
While De Bruin is a specialist in the number three jersey, he is equally comfortable playing at loosehead prop.
