Lions centre heads to England

TRANSFER NEWS: Lions centre Tyler Bocks has revealed the next chapter in his career.


The 23-year-old has joined RFU Championship side Ealing Trailfinders ahead of the 2024/2025 season

Bocks made his Currie Cup debut for the Lions against Western Province in 2022.

He was named in the Lions’ 2023/24 United Rugby Championship squad and he is known for his defensive stability whilst being dangerous in attack.

Bocks represented the Junior Springboks in 2021, having previously played for the South African Schools team in the Under-18 International Series in 2019.

On arrival in West London, Bocks said: “I’m very excited to be joining Ealing Trailfinders and to play in England.

“The quality of rugby is high and it’s the perfect environment for me to keep on improving my game at a competitive level.


“I look forward to meeting all of you and helping the club reach continued success and win trophies”

Ealing Trailfinders Director of Rugby Ben Ward added: “Tyler is an exciting signing for the club. He is an abrasive centre who hits hard and can get us on the front foot.”
