Biography

With François Van Der Merwe, Racing obtained the South African second row prototype: Hard and efficient on static phases. Arrived from the Western Province where he competed for the Currie Cup between 2002 and 2008, he entered that same year the Stormers squad which represent the province in Super 14. Van der Merwe, tall and talented, makes a devastating match with his “Ciel et Blanc” pack Partners. Big time player on line outs and scrums, he was part of the leaders that pulled up the team to win the Pro D2 championship in 2008-2009. After a first season in Top 14, which didn’t go so well due to many recurring injuries, Van der Merwe imposed himself within Racing’s second row as an essential player. He fought no more than 23 matches in which he made 19 starts. It isn’t a secret no more, even with thirty springs passed away, the South African will certainly not stop there, and will carry on in an increasing way.
