Hansie Graaff

Hansie Graaff
Biography

Hailing from Pretoria, Hansie Graaff attended the Tshwane University of Technology, where he thrived on the Varsity Cup stage, despite his team often struggling. Graaff earned a reputation of being able to manufacture a try-scoring opportunity out of nothing, and it was the Griffons who first gave Hansie a taste of professional rugby, with a Vodacom Cup debut in 2012. A wildly successful Currie Cup 1st Division followed, where he scored 134 points in fifteen matches, showing a goal-kicking ability that led the Sharks to pounce on the opportunity to sign him in time for the 2014 Vodacom Cup.

He established himself as a counter-attacking threat at fullback, but when Hansie made a move to the EP Kings, his ability to control proceedings were apparent as both a pivot and centre. Spells at the SWD Eagles and Silverstorm El Salvador in Spain caught the attention of Massy, and Graaff thrived in the high-pressure environment of Pro D2. Twenty-seven appearances saw him amass 231 points in both the number 10 and 15 jerseys, whilst a short spell at Bayonne also saw Graaff use his strength and speed off the mark as a starting wing in the Top 14. Versatile, experienced and composed, he now enters the prime of this career.
