Benjamin Akami Makombe, Prop

At 90kgs, twenty-four year old Makombe is the heaviest on the team. In rugby, weight counts a lot. Better still, if you can manage it. Makombe carries his weight with ease since he’s all muscle.

He is expected to play a key role in the line-outs; lifting whoever will contest for the balls in the air. He will also play the prop’s traditional role in the scrum and rucks- very physical aspects of the game.
