Wiehahn Herbst

5th Jul 1988 1.80m/113kg Tighthead Prop

The young tighthead has performed an important backup role to Jannie du Plessis, and is growing in confidence as he gets more exposure.

His powerful frame makes him a handful in the tight exchanges, whilst an effective technique often sees him get the better of his opposite number at scrum-time.

The tighthead prop joined Ulster in 2014 from Super Rugby franchise The Sharks, and in December 2016 extended his stay at Kingspan Stadium until at least the summer of 2019.

Herbst has made 54 appearances for Ulster scoring two tries.

As of the 2018/2019 Champions Cup, Herbst has had 15 Champions Cup appearances.

In April 2019, Herbst left Ulster to return to South Africa and joined the Bulls.
