The Tel Aviv Heat is proud to announce the signing of experienced Namibian International Renaldo Bothma as one of the marquee players for the Tel Aviv Heat in the upcoming Super Cup Season.
Renaldo’s track record speaks for itself, having played with the Bulls, Lions, Pumas, and Sharks before heading to England to play for Harlequins. Bothma is a no-half-measure, robust loose forward that will bring a considerable physical presence to the Tel Aviv Heat forward pack.
Bothma is sure to stamp his authority on the competition and will serve as an example to the younger players around him, leading from the front as he does best.
Renaldo played for Namibia at the 2015 Rugby World Cup and captained the side in 2016 and 2017 and he has played numerous internationals for them.
After a short break from rugby to focus on his business, Renaldo has decided to re-lace his boots and get back onto the park and front up to the Eastern Conference in the Super Cup.
The Tel Aviv Heat is super excited to see Renaldo in action.
Kevin Musikanth on Renaldo Bothma:
“ Renaldo is a brilliant modern-day loose forward. A hard working, tough player who commits 100% to everything he does on the field. I have no doubt that he will lead from the front. His rugby experience and international track record speaks for itself. We are truly very fortunate to have a player of his calibre in our team and I look forward to coaching him and seeing him in full flight on the park…”
Renaldo Bothma on signing for the The Tel Aviv Heat:
“I am extremely excited to play some rugby again. I took a break from rugby to focus on my business the last year and half. After speaking with Demitri and Kevin I am really excited to get back on the pitch and see how I can contribute to the team and to continue my rugby career….”
