Vodacom Bulls junior scrumhalf Ross Braude is already in Canada after being called up by the national rugby team of Canada. He is currently in quarantine but will join the Canadian national squad who is preparing for possible matches against America.

Braude represented Grey College's 1stXV in 2017 and 2018. He represented the Cheetahs in 2016 at the Grant Khomo and also represented them at the u/18 Craven Week in 2017 and 2018. Braude also represented South Africa at u/17 level as a sevens player.

Braude is in negotiations with the Bulls to release him from his contract which ends end of October 2021. He cited the oversupply of scrumhalves which includes two current Springboks as the major reason for his decision. Braude played only 57 minutes in the 2019 u/19 SARU Championship and did not feature for the Bulls u/21 in the recent SARU u/21 Championship Final after gaining only 46 minutes game time in three appearances from the bench.

Braude is in negotiations with the Toronto Arrows who competes in America's Major League with his ultimate goal to represent Canada at the 2023 World Cup.
