|Kleinjan Tromp is a superb athlete with tremendous explosive power who has surprising speed for his size.
He debuted for the Cats last season, playing in all 11 matches, and is certain to accumulate more game time this year in the absence of Springbok Johan Ackermann, who is furthering his career in England.
A veteran of almost 100 first-class games for North West before arriving at the Lions via the Blue Bulls, he played against the touring Irish team in 1998.
Son of rugged Western Transvaal lock Jan Tromp who, as legend has it, killed a leopard with his bare hands, and brother of Henry, who represented South Africa as a hooker.
