Widely considered to be one of the world’s leading full backs, the former Shark and Cheetah is closing in on a half-century of South African caps.

A brilliant attacking runner, le Roux also allies superb vision with outstanding footballing skills. He is also tackles reliably and is excellent under the high ball.

Le Roux joined Wasps in February 2017 from Tokyo-based Canon Eagles at the conclusion of the Japanese season.

Prior to this he had been voted as SARPA’s players’ player-of-the-year in 2013 and was a world player-of-the-year nominee in 2014.
His versatility enables him to play at fullback and wing, although earlier in his career he played mostly as a fly-half.
The Springbok international, who has become an integral part of his club’s back three, made a return to international rugby in summer 2018 where he lined up opposite clubmate Elliot Daly in his country’s three test series against England.
