Vodacom Bulls – A Brilliant Nama Xaba Sign A Two Year Deal


The Vodacom Bulls have acquired the services of Kuyenzeka ‘Nama’ Xaba on an initial two-year deal. As he is affectionately known, ‘Nama’ slots into the openside flanker role and arrives at the capital to begin his journey with the herd until June 2026.

The Glenwood High and University of Cape Town captain arrives in the capital from the DHL Stormers with whom he has spent much of his junior and senior professional career, making 25 senior appearances for the Cape side.

Xaba boasts an impressive CV, having led his high school both on and off the field. Captaining Glenwood in the same year he was the school’s head boy. He finished his matric with five distinctions and has gone on to obtain a BSc in Geomatics at the University he occasionally captained. He earned his first provincial colours for the Kwa-Zulu Natal at under-12 before going on to earn further caps at Under-13 Craven Week, Under-16 Grant Khomo Week, Academy Week as well as at Craven Week.

“This is a privilege for me to come join the most successful union in South Africa,”

“I am looking forward to a different challenge away from my comfort zone. There is a lot of quality players at the Vodacom Bulls and I want to play alongside them. I also have a wonderful opportunity to be taught by seasoned coaches, I am looking forward to learning from them.”

Xaba adds: “I cannot wait to slot into the brand of rugby this club plays and I have hopes of doing my bit to help add more silverware to the Loftus trophy cabinet.”
