Tyler Paul, Old Preppie (2008) and Old Andrean (2013), as a Sharks team player, was awarded the hard-won 2018 Currie Cup when the Sharks won the Championship final recently.
Excelling as Flanker/Lock, Tyler began his rugby career at St Andrew’s and in 2013 while in Matric, he was named the EP Kings’ U19 Player of the Year. In March 2015, Paul was named in an extended South Africa Under-20 training group as part of their preparation for the 2015 World Rugby U20 Championship.
Since then, Paul’s skills have shone. During the 2017 Super Rugby season, he featured in all 15 of his sides – so much so, that he was given a two-year deal with the Sharks ahead of their 2017 Currie Cup campaign.
His work ethic and drive made him a key player in the 2018 Sharks Currie Cup squad as they fought for the Championship title, taking the Cup home.
