Sintu Manjezi

7th Apr 1995 1.97m/105kg No 5 Lock

Manjezi cut his teeth in the FNB Varsity Cup, South Africa's premier university competition, in the colours of FNB NMMU before shifting to the Tafel Lager Griquas.

The gifted lock forward made the move to Bloemfontein at the end 2018 where he represented the Cheetahs in the PRO14, routinely showing up his European opponents, and assisted the Free State Cheetahs in lifting the Currie Cup during the 2019 season's successful campaign.

Manjezi stamped his authority in the PRO14 as a tough as nails and uncompromising lock in the club' pack. His core strength in the scrum coupled with his prowess at lineout time and ability to poach the ball off the ground makes him a valuable asset. He is also versatile as he can pack down on the side of the scrum when called upon.

In June 2020, he signed a deal with the Bulls.
