Originally hailing from Cape Town, Lindo Ncusane attended Stellenberg High School and caused a sensation when turning out for Western Province at the U16 Grant Khomo Week. The younger brother of former South African Schools loose forward, Khanya Ncusane, Lindo joined his sibling in Gauteng, by enrolling at one of Johannesburg’s most famous high schools. Lindo became a learner at King Edwards VII School (known as KES), quickly working his way through the Second XV and making his mark for KES’ renowned 1st XV. Blessed with the versatility to play in all three positions of the back row, his agility saw Ncusane turn out for the Golden Lions in the U19 Currie Cup as a rapid No. 8, providing the link between forwards & backs.
His dominance in contact has also led Lindo to stake a claim as a barnstorming blindside flank, but it was on the openside that he caught the attention of the South African U20 coaching staff. Called up to the Baby Boks squad for their tour to Georgia, Ncusane’s pillaging ability is an invaluable asset in the modern game. Currently a student at Wits University, Lindo looks set to progress through the ranks of the Golden Lions U21 squad and break through onto the senior professional stage. Young, humble, and superbly well-conditioned, Lindo Ncusane is a name to remember.
