The rise of the Big guy
When ex Sharks wing, Wandile Mjekevu arrived in France in August, and stepped off the plane; I wonder if he knew then what a huge impact he was about to have on the Perpignan team.
Featuring weekly in the French press, he has turned into a try scoring machine and a crowd favourite with the fans.
He was named as one of the “Big men on the rise” in a Sunday Times article in Europe alongside big boys Lote Tuqiri and George North. In fact we wouldn’t be surprised if Wandi, as he is affectionately known, doesn’t get a call from a certain national coach one of these days.
