The Toyota Cheetahs are thrilled to announce the acquisition of Prince Nkabinde, a dynamic wing that has been making waves in the South African rugby scene over the past couple of years. With a career marked by consistent excellence and impressive achievements, Nkabinde brings a wealth of talent to the team.

Prince Nkabinde shone brightly in the 2024 FNB Varsity Cup, representing the FNB UJ Rugby club. His performance was spectacular as he played and started all seven round-robin fixtures. His efforts did not go unnoticed, earning him a nomination for the prestigious FNB Backline Player that Rocks award, where he finished as a runner-up. His try-scoring prowess also saw him break into the top 5 list of UJ players with the most tries in their FNB Varsity Cup careers.

Nkabinde's journey began in 2018 with the Lions U/19 Currie Cup team. His exceptional play earned him the Lions U/19 Backline Player of the Year award, setting the stage for a promising career.

In 2019, he was part of the SA U/20 Academy camp and played for the Lions U/21 Currie Cup and SuperSport Challenge teams. The 2020 season was a landmark as Nkabinde played for the Lions U/21 team that reached the finals. His contributions were pivotal in their journey to the final. Balancing his commitments, 2021 saw Nkabinde playing for the FNB UJ Rugby club in the Varsity Cup while making his mark with the Emirates Lions senior squad.

In 2022, Prince brought his talents to the Griquas, competing in the Currie Cup in the 2023 season. His performances for UJ in the Varsity Cup earned him a spot with the Emirates Lions in the Currie Cup premier division.

Fans can look forward to seeing his dynamic play and try-scoring abilities light up the field as he takes on new challenges and continues to grow as a player.

The Toyota Cheetahs welcome Prince Nkabinde to the team!
