Francois Louw; RBI ambassador
Originally from Cape Town, Springbok Francois Louw joined Bath Rugby in 2011. The hard-hitting flanker was an integral component of the Stormers pack in Super Rugby, and represented Western Province over 60 times.
Highly regarded for his defensive skills, Louw is an influential presence in the back row who can not only create havoc at the breakdown, but is also skillful and quick in attack. He has become a key figure in the Bath Rugby squad, having made 89 appearances to date. Louw’s experience and leadership qualities have made him a key figure in the team both on and off the pitch.
The 6ft 4in, 17st 5lb Louw has made over 40 appearances for South Africa since his debut against Wales in 2010, and has scored eight tries, the most recent coming when he represented the Springboks at the 2015 Rugby World Cup.
