Lamla Nunu

Of all the elite athletes in Connect’s programme, we have perhaps seen the biggest physical change in Lamla. Since he joined the academy early in 2015 – never having touched a rugby ball before – he has turned himself into a powerhouse forward, with a little help from our academy’s nutritional programme!

Unsurprisingly, he puts his size to good use in the front row, as well as making the most of our off-season strength and conditioning programme to shed the excess and take the shape of a young high performance athlete with the potential to go far.

A recent growth spurt has also led to him playing at lock for Western Cape Sport School, where he is on a rugby bursary alongside fellow Connect athletes Lutho Dyalvane and Lukhanyo Vokozela. All three boys are sponsored by the Woodstock, Cape Town, franchise of Timbercity. Join them in supporting a Connect high performance athlete.

Lamla is already the unofficial Connect Sports Academy athlete spokesman and, if it wasn’t for rugby, this outspoken young man would probably already be a trade union leader.

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.
