Affectionately known around the rugby world by his nick-name, “the Beast,” due to his awesome scrummaging power and unstoppable line breaks, Mtawarira comes to Washington DC almost directly off of the ultimate rugby victory, having anchored the front row as the starting loosehead prop for the 2019 Rugby World Cup champion, South Africa.  This achievement was the culmination of an international career that earned the Beast 117 caps, making him the most-capped Springbok forward of all time.  His dominance of the scrum has recently earned him a reputation for “ruining the careers” of opposing tighthead props at the highest levels of the sport.
