Ayabulela Machuli

Relentless in putting his body on the line, unselfish with ball in hand and fearless when it comes to the physical side of rugby, Aya possesses a character and resolve that can take him a long way, far beyond the confines of a sports field.

Technically, he has a superb tackle technique that belies his modest size. Beyond that, he has made a name for himself within Connect Sports Academy’s high performance system with his power and strike running.

Aya has been living in our Khayelitsha clubhouse on a part-time basis, as well as at home with his family, to enhance his nutrition and academics ahead of his transition to high school in 2018.

We’d love for you to sponsor one of our high performance athletes, or make a direct donation to support the work that we do.
