Kenyan man-mountain Daniel Adongo is excited for the 2013 Super Rugby tournament after a successful season with Counties-Manukau in New Zealand’s ITM Cup last year.
“My first season with the Counties has been superb and eventful, having been part of the team that won the Championship,” Adongo said.
“I am so delighted that I should realise my dream of playing in Super Rugby, after having only played for Bulls in the build up ahead of the 2012 Super Rugby.”
Adongo is set to link up with the Kings, as the Eastern Province team prepares for their Super Rugby debut.
Adongo, who stands 1.98 m tall and weighs in at 113 kgs, is looking forward to the challenge that Super Rugby brings, but believes his preperation is thank to that of his experience in the ITM Cup.
“I went to New Zealand with high expectations and for sure it has been fulfilled,” he said.
“I was looking for an opportunity to play and showcase my skills and I definitely got that in New Zealand and that has benefited me as a player and going forward.”
