Top 20 most fashionable SA rugby players (Part 3)


RugbyRocks.com identifies the most fashionable South African rugby players in a four-part series.

10. Makazole Mapimpi

Scoring a try in a World Cup final is just one of many of Mapimpi’s accolades. The humble winger knows how to pull off a leather jacket and black suit, that’s for sure. Streetwear is his go-to everyday style and let’s just say he knows what he’s doing.

9. Edwill van der Merwe

The Stormers wing is all about streetwear, NBA jerseys, denim on denim and bright sneakers. That’s not where his fashion choices stop, though. Edwill loves to dress up and play around with bright patterns, whether it's a matching jumpsuit set or a budgie smuggler.   

8. Xolisa Guma

The Bulls wing isn’t afraid to try out all sorts of styles and he loves a good pair of sunglasses. His standard is streetwear or a great pair of jeans and a button-down shirt, but that is not where it stops. Xolisa recently rocked an all-white matching set and all we can say is it just worked.

7. Francois Hougaard

The Worcester Warriors scrumhalf knows how to strike a pose, which is definitely a factor when it comes to having 261k Instagram followers. Francois gives off that elite Hampton’s chic – he knows how to rock a tuxedo and a button-down shirt for a day on a boat or a night out. 

6. Damian Willemse

The Stormers and Springbok youngster knows what he’s doing when it comes to fashion. He’s always exploring Cape Town in outfits that stand out. From streetwear to smart casual – the guy’s got it down to a tee! Damian has a pair of pastel Adidas ‘Girls are awesome’ dungarees that everybody needs in their closet.
