|Gavin Pfister is a skilful flank forward who got his big break when he made the Western Province Sevens side under the coaching of Alan Solomons.
He is equally at home at No 8, but flank is his preferred position. With the surfeit of quality looseforwards in the Cape Pfister found it difficult to break into the WP senior team, but has a few appearances for the Vodacom Cup side to his credit.
In 1999 he decided to try his luck at the Northern Free State Griffons and emerged as one of the exciting team’s stalwarts. At the start of the 2000 season Pfister was included in the Stormers training squad, but he broke his leg early in the season.
Gavin enjoys all outdoor activities and has a passion for surfing. When it comes to rugby his brother Mark has always given Gavin all the inspiration needed to succeed. He is currently not under contract with any team. |
